In the small university town of Redwood Grove, people are succumbing to a lethal strain of flu. They are dying—but not for long.

Ashley Parker and her boyfriend are attacked by these shambling, rotting creatures that crave human flesh. Their lives will never be the same again.

When she awakes Ashley discovers that she is a “wild card”—immune to the virus—and is recruited by a shadowy paramilitary organization that offers her the chance to fight back. Fatally attracted to her gorgeous instructor, and bonding with her fellow wild cards, Ashley begins to discover skills she never knew she had.

As the town falls to ever-growing numbers of the infected, Ashley and her team fight to contain the outbreak—but will they be enough?

First Thought When Finished: What an absolutely fun ride Plague Town by Dana Fredsti was! Perfect addition to my zombie shelf!

What I Loved: The thing I loved most about Plague Town: the banter. I was pretty much living for the moments of dialogue between the characters. There were some pretty witty, fast-paced barbs traded and I loved each and every one! Ash was a great leading lady! She manages to get in and out of so many troubling spots that you can’t help but root for her. Plus, you have to love her little screw you’s to the system. Nathan was my favorite male character! Once he got in the mix the fun level just sky rocketed!

What I Liked: Pretty much the rest of the characters in the book were dead-on perfect for the story. Each brought something to the table and had moments to shine. I really liked all the action too. Plague Town had a great combo of action/story.

Final Thought: I will be counting down to book 2! It needs to be here already 🙂

Some great lines:

“At least part of me sparkled. Although not in a Twilight kind of way”

“Yeah. Zombies. unless you have a better word for people who look dead, smell dead, and act dead, except for the whole walking-around-and-trying-to-eat-flesh part.”

“Guess I’ve learned we’re not always what we eat.”

“Oh, Christ on a crutch.” Nathan shut his eyes and rubbed a hand on his forehead, as if trying to massage away reality. “Simone Fraser. I should have known you’d be part of this whole clusterfuck.”

  1. I am adding this to my shelf it sounds awesome. Loved the quotes that last one…Christ on a crutch…so wicked it made me laugh!

  2. Amy

    So excited. Sounds like it was a great book club book. I love that it seems like chicks might be taking control during the zombie Apocolypse. “you boys did enough. Thanks, but no thanks. We’ve got it from here.”

  3. Sold! I was reading through your review hoping it wouldn’t end up being mid series or something because this sounds like a lot of fun.

  4. Oooo I do love witty banter! It’s so much fun to read great dialogue – kind of like watching a tennis match and seeing who’s going to zing the next witty retort in there:)
