Review: LOVE AND DECAY: Season 3, Epi 5 BY Rachel Higginson

Title: LOVE AND DECAY: Season 3, Epi 5

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

Things have been bad for Reagan and friends, but Raphael’s slaving camp might top them all. Unsure where Haley and Page were taken to, and faced with the evil that immediately surrounds her, Reagan is close to giving up.

This life asks too much of her. This world demands too high a price.

And yet, sometimes even in the darkest moments there is light.

Just as Reagan faces yet more territory wars and an unthinkable bargain, help comes from a very unexpected place. Reagan is given another chance at freedom.

And maybe another chance to right the mistakes of her past.

Love and Decay, Episode Five is the fifth episode in Season Three of a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.

This story takes place over multiple episodes, with a release date every two weeks. Approximately 20,000 words.

My take...
The man stared at me with his beady eyes gleaming in the darkness. His lips twisted into a cruel smile and he raised his hands as if to settle me down.
Didn't he know? He couldn't settle me down. I was untamable.
I was wild.

Reagan is at her lowest of lows. Death is imminent. She just watched a fraction of her family get ripped away from her and all hope seems diminished. Maybe it is time for her to give up and let the darkness take her. After all, this whole Zombie Apocalypse isn't all it is cracked up to be.

Absolutely enjoyed this episode. So much action and fighting. Sometimes a good fight is just what you need in a book, am I right? Well Higginson delivers that and so much more.

We also see the old Reagan we used to know. The one before Kane died. The one before her light was snuffed out. She is back and back with vengeance. Man, have I missed her. Just when you think she is defeated, she shows her true self and does what she does best...fight for her life and most of all her family.

Definitely looking forward to what Higginson is throwing at the Parkers and us readers next. So much can happen. So much can go wrong!! 5 Action Packed Stars!
