Upcoming book reviews for October/November!

Braineater Jones by Stephen Kozeniewski

Synopsis straight from Amazon:

Braineater Jones wakes up face down in a swimming pool with no memory of his former life, how he died, or why he’s now a zombie. With a smart-aleck severed head as a partner, Jones descends into the undead ghetto to solve his own murder.

But Jones’s investigation is complicated by his crippling addiction to human flesh. Like all walking corpses, he discovers that only a stiff drink can soothe his cravings. Unfortunately, finding liquor during Prohibition is costly and dangerous. From his Mason jar, the cantankerous Old Man rules the only speakeasy in the city that caters to the postmortem crowd.

As the booze, blood, and clues coagulate, Jones gets closer to discovering the identity of his killer and the secrets behind the city’s stranglehold on liquid spirits. Death couldn’t stop him, but if the liquor dries up, the entire city will be plunged into an orgy of cannibalism.

Cracking this case is a tall order. Braineater Jones won’t get out alive, but if he plays his cards right, he might manage to salvage the last scraps of his humanity.


The Stormrider by Ed Ireland

Synopsis straight from Amazon:

Once more, the drums of war echo across the Fairlands. A madman that leads an army of indescribable size and destruction has set his eyes on Andaria. While Hellion wrestles with inner demons, his clansmen prepare for battle. They are eager now to once more engage death, look it in the eye and defy it.

However, the Goddess herself forbids it. The great Mother, the very world they stand upon has become tired once more. She calls her emissaries to insure that the men of Andaria are the first to feel her wrath. The Goddess of the Free People forbids them to go to the aid of the Andarian people. Instead, she sends Hellion on a quest to bring the lost tribes to their new homes in the Fairlands.

In the forests, the children of Andaria seek asylum. They cross the river into the Fairlands, but their destructive ways must not be allowed to mark their journey. Fire has been left to oversee their exodus and insure her own beloved can return safely. As she prepares the clans, the unprecedented formation of the six armies begins. Five allies will join her. The three most ancient races of Gaia put aside their differences and offer support to Fire’s command.

The armies of men and dwarves, still thankful for the Free People’s help in regaining their homes pledge their support as well. Fire finds herself in command of an army the likes of which this world has never seen before. An army that can crush the madman that races along Andaria leaving a swatch of chaos and destruction in its wake.

Still, the wishes of the Goddess cannot be ignored. Andaria must fall. However, the refugees that huddle in the Fairlands must be saved and the pursuing army halted. Fire, suddenly imbued with the gift of realization of who she is, sheds her self-doubt and stands at the head of her armies. While Andaria has been chosen, the madman will not enter the Fairlands! This is her will and her savagery on the battlefield will become legend!


Hella Kills by Karen Carr

Synopsis straight from Amazon:

Meet Hella Paige. She kills zombies. Well, technically her virus kills zombies, the one that she contracted after being bitten by her undead neighbor. In the much anticipated sequel to POCKETS OF THE DEAD, Hella overcomes her fear and controlling nature to battle both living and undead foes. Hella finds her way through the mysterious town of Pittsboro, once a sleepy haven for hippies and now run by a secretive and magnanimous leader named Hipslow. She moves on to fight her way through Durham and rescue her friend Saudah, battling the evil forces of Mace Duce’s army.

While Huck captured her heart in love at first sight, she now questions those feelings as she’s thrust into the action with Zeke. Having Zeke by her side, the strongest fighter on her team, makes her feel invincible. Will Hella be able to escape the clutches of Mace Duce or will she be turned into another experiment in his reprehensible lab? Will she be able to find love with Huck or with Zeke or will she leave love by the wayside to save the world?

HELLA KILLS is the second book out of seven planned novels in the post apocalypse series called DAWNLAND.
