Zombiekill: A Post Apocalyptic Thriller by Russ Watts is a fictional horror, fantasy, thriller, and science fiction novel of a zombie apocalypse that will appeal most to an audience of young adults and adults with a stomach for horror and gore in the extreme, as well as a love of all things zombie. Zombiekill follows three main groups/families; one group is a family that has barricaded themselves in their home, another is a millionaire in his mansion, and another is locked in a motel. The three groups are waiting for the rescue promised before the television broadcasts cut out. They tell themselves that the major cities are being cleared first and they just have to keep waiting, but for how long can they wait?

Zombiekill by Russ Watts has all the necessary elements of a horrifying zombie apocalypse tale and is without a doubt a horror story in that the main characters live in fear, the detailed descriptions of gore, and the huge numbers of people who are dead or dying. Zombiekill also has its moments of sadness when fear is absent. At the beginning of the book there is a family of three living trapped inside their own house when the mother sees a woman fleeing from the zombies. She runs to let her into the house, only to end up dead with the father hitting and blaming the daughter for his wife’s death. The book has a somber feeling to it in many of the moments that are not filled with horror. I personally found that these moments offered a good balance to the book.
