Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored "Wall." They're feeling pretty optimistic.

That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects.

Eat. Slay. Love.

Because they haven't got a prayer.

First Thought when Finished: Eat Slay Love was an interesting journey and some really good kick ass action!

Overall Thoughts: Eat Slay Love was not my favorite book in the series but it was still very enjoyable. Sarah & David are still kicking ass but also dealing with David’s “difference (fall out from Flip This Zombie). I have to admit that I really loved the edition of a couple of characters (won’t give spoilers but these two come in fairly early–one girl, one guy). Jesse writes really great characters. They are often filled with spunk and vigor. I was glad to see that there is a 4th book in the series! The last of the book would have worked as an ending point but I think there was still so much story left to tell. I will be picking it up soon!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Cassandra Campbell /Length: 7 hrs and 53 mins

I am usually a fan of Cassandra Campbell but overall she wasn’t a great fit for me and this series. I think she did a stellar job with Sarah but I never warmed up to her voice of David. However, it is mostly because I had “David” in my head a different way. This is usually why I won’t start a series late on Audio.

Final Thought: Super glad there is a 4th book in the series.

  1. This series sounds so fun and action packed! I know what you mean about the audio not meeting expectations when you are mid-way through a series. I like Cassandra Campbell though so I may try out the audio.

    • It is fun! I love Cassandra and this was a clear case of me coming in book 3 with preconceived notions of how they should sound in my head. Plus I learned I was saying someone’s name wrong *doh*

  2. :snort” Ok I first thought I saw Eat, Sleep, Love then I looked at the cover and saw the ax and clever and was like..WTF?!? LOL Eat, Slay, Love! This sounds like it will be fun. Maybe the book version since the audio was meh.

    • It was a fun series. Very tongue in cheek and lots of snarky humor. I think the audio would have rocked if I started with book 1. Nothing like coming in book 3 and realizing you have been saying someone’s name wrong the whole series LOL

  3. I listened to the first book on audio and I vaguely remember it. I liked the series overall and I need to get back to it soon. Glad that it is still going strong on book three.
