Holy moly have I got some books for you.
Fair warning - this isn't for everyone. But me? I LOVE a good zombie book or flick. And this? This is LESBIANS VS. ZOMBIES. Does it get better than that? I don't think so.
Linda Kay Silva brings us two books in the series. First, Man Eaters.
Dallas, your new favorite firelady hero, meets up with cowgirl Roper and their nerdy sidekick at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. It's hot, it's heavy, and it's a whole lot of fun.
And just when you're ready for more, there's The Horde. From Amazon:
They just keep coming.
Dragging their lifeless limbs and gnashing their broken teeth, the horde of man eaters presses forward. For every man eater Dallas and Roper put down, twelve more are created.
After spending nearly a year in the bayou, the survivors once again, set out in search of a safe haven where they might do more than survive, but thrive.
Thrive among the hordes bearing down on them. Thrive amid government attacks on the new compound they call home.
As Dallas and Roper build a new life, the ever present military launches surprise attacks, the bloody horde keeps on clawing at the walls, and the rest of mankind devolves into something barbaric and unrecognizable.
Can Dallas and Roper lead their people through the maze of thinking and brain dead killers? Can they find a place to once and for all go on the offensive?
Or it is, as some survivors believe, too late?
Now, a slight caveat. Both books start off slow. In both cases I wasn't entirely sure I was going to make it past the first couple chapters. But oh, how they pick up and get going. I promise, if you keep reading (and you're a zombie fan), you'll have a great time. I read both books in one week and enjoyed almost every minute of it. The second book does suffer from middle-book-fever - it doesn't feel complete unto itself - but I'm sure Silva will bring us another book to make it all worth it. Get started now and then wait with me with baited breath for the conclusion.
And now my conclusion:
ZOMBIES VERSES LESBIANS. Did you really need more than that?
