My Week In Review: 6/10/17-6/17/17

This past week was a little bit of a let down for me.  I tried some new to me authors and out of the 10 books I read, I have just 4 to tell you about.  

Here they are:

Green Fields: Escalation by Adrienne Lecter - 5 Stars*****

Is anybody out there? 

After a long winter spent hunkering down in Wyoming, Bree, Nate, and the gang are back on the road. The harsh temperatures up in the northern regions might have decimated the undead scourge somewhat, but soon they have to face reality: it’s not just zombies that are out there to hunt people down and kill them. 

For humanity to have a fighting chance to rebuild a semblance of civilization, everyone will have to work together—and resources are scarce. Someone will have to go out there and face the danger—and maybe find out what happened to the undead that were smart enough to flee the cold. Only the strong and smart have survived, making everyday life just a little more deadly for everyone.

Zomb-Pocalypse 4 by Megan Berry - 4 Stars****

The bitter cold of winter settles over the mountain, sweeping through the zombies and freezing them solid where they stand. A welcome reprieve, but Jane and her group of rag-tag survivors aren't out of the woods yet. It's a struggle for survival for Jane and the others, who are out of touch without modern conveniences like electricity and heat. This causes a steep learning curve for the group, one with deadly consequences if they fail.

The weather isn't the only thing causing dissension within the walls of the cabin- the discovery of immunity to the zombie virus has the group divided on how to move forward.

Living with other people can be difficult during the best of times, but trying to hold it together in the apocalypse, can seem impossible.

The Girl Who Punched Back by Angel Lawson - 4 Stars****

That moment when Alexandra realizes rabid zombie monsters are no longer the biggest threat...

Three months have passed since Alexandra traveled through the wasted death fields to reach her sister, Jane. There's no resemblance to her former life. No college. No best friend. Her mother is dead. Her father and her friend, Cole, toil away in the labs of her sister's research facility, working to create a vaccine for the virus that ravages the living.

Hope for a cure is dampened by the growing society Jane has developed. Armed troops fill The Fort, and the only way Alex knows how to keep an eye on her sister is by joining the elite Fighter army led by Wyatt, a mercenary and deadly soldier. Some days, Alex considers him a friend. The rest of the time, she's unsure where his loyalties lie. The truth is, Alex isn't always sure about herself, either.

All Alex wants is to right the wrongs of her sister's dangerous meddling, but Jane has bigger plans than vaccinating the survivors. Alex and her allies quickly learn that rabid cannibals are not the biggest problems facing mankind, but at what lengths will they have to go to save the world?

Tombyards and Butterflies by Orlando A. Sanchez

A Missing Ferryman. An Undead Dilemma. An Immortal Detective.

An emissary from the Dark Council has just materialized in the office of the Montague & Strong Detective Agency, and makes Simon Strong an offer he can’t refuse. Charon is missing. The legendary ferryman responsible for transporting souls across the river Styx hasn’t been seen in days. And with each passing hour, those unable to cross the river are left to walk among the living, tilting the world further out of balance. 

Meet Simon Strong, an immortal, who is also the best private detective in New York City. Together with his surly partner-Tristan Montague, a mage of indeterminate age, they must find the Ferryman and get him back to work before another Supernatural War ravages the earth, destroys humanity, and Simon’s local coffee shop. 

Time is running out. His landlord wants the rent and Karma with a capital K is paying him a visit, and she can be a real… Join the Montague & Strong Detective Agency and help them locate Charon, so he can restore balance to the universe, put the dead to rest, and maybe solve the age-old conundrum-coffee or tea?

There you have it.  I hope you reading week was wonderful.  As always, thanks for stopping by.
