Now Live: LOVE STARTS WITH Z by Tera Shanley {Review}

 Twenty-four years into the Dead outbreak that ended the world, Soren Mitchell sticks out like a sore thumb in the remains of the human race. She's an anomaly: a hybrid of human and Dead, created by her mother's genetic immunity. Like her parents, she's fierce and strong. But despite their hopes for her happiness and safety, and even though she is no real threat to the colony, she has let the humans muzzle her and confine her within the walls of Dead Run River in search of a cure.

When Kaegan Langford stumbles into the colony with an injured friend draped across his shoulders, her world is turned upside down. Intrigued and affected by her, he asks her to come to Empalme, Mexico with him to fight in the war between Deads and humans. It'll be a long, treacherous journey to the coast, but she's had all she can take in the colony.

Battles with Deads, betrayal, injury, kidnappings, and a criminal-run train ride stand between them and the war. But in the end, it's not just the war with the Deads that could be the death of them.

Tera Shanley's final book in the Dead Rapture series will thrill your heart...and your braaaains.

Book One (only 99 cents for the month of February! Get it now!) http://www.amazon.com/Love-Time-Dead-Rapture-Book-ebook/dp/B00NO13982/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

I have been in love with this series from the moment I started the very first book. And now we fast forward 2 more books and over 20 years into the future. The daughter of famous Laney Landry is now all grown up and living back at Dead Run River, desperately searching for a cure. But life is not wonderful. Not by a long shot. Forced to wear a muzzle and treated like flesh eating scum of the earth, she goes about her days praying that this day will be the one a cure is made. But it never is. Then limps in hope....

First and foremost...this book, out of all 3, was my absolute favorite. And I will tell you that it is all due to the characters. I adored Soren. She carried a burden of guilt from her childhood and was hated among her neighbors. But she still was a fantastic character with a lot of heart and kindness. Then there was Kaegan. I loved him. Like so, so much. He is one of those guys I will always think back on. He has a heart bigger than any I have read about in quite some time. He was absolutely romantic and knew how to work his way into the reader's heart. Loved him!

The story was oh so fabulous. I grew more and more excited as the story flowed at where the author was taking everything. I also grew sad knowing this was it. This is where the zombie goodness ended for all the characters I have grown to love and care about. But in the end, I was left smiling and happy. Yay for happy endings!

This is one book you just gotta read. Sure, LOVE STARTS WITH Z can be read as a standalone. But I also think you should read the first two just because they are so amazing and wonderful you won’t be able to put them down. 5 Zombie'lious Stars!
