In Zombie War by Jean Booth, Sarah, a nurse in a hospital, witnesses something terrifying as the AIDS vaccine is given to people. What was thought to be a promising cure that could finally end a horrible virus ends up being the cause of an unexpected zombie apocalypse. The world they know is suddenly gone and filled with the undead, who are starving and looking for humans to feast on. Sarah and a small group of survivors try to make a safe home for themselves, but the need for food and other supplies creates difficulty.

Jean Booth took what could have been a typical zombie novel and turned it into something uniquely entertaining. The walking dead in this book can actually talk, think, and strategize, making them all the more frightening. I will have a hard time getting the images of disturbing scenes that involved so much blood and gore out of my head, which is exactly what I want from a horror story. Not only did I enjoy the violence, but I also found myself caring about some of these characters, which I think is important. A zombie book could be full of action and carnage, but if I don’t care about the people, there’s no point in reading it. So, I give Jean Booth credit for being able to accomplish both. Zombie War is definitely a must-read for any zombie or horror fans. It certainly won’t disappoint. I can’t wait to read more of this brilliant author’s work.
