Review: LOVE & DECAY: Revolution, Epi 2 by Rachel Higginson

Title: Love and Decay: Revolution, Epi 2

It’s not easy being a badass Zombie killer. But somebody’s got to do it.

Page Parker is unsatisfied with her post-apocalyptic life in the relative safety of the research station. She knows there’s something bigger out there for her. There’s something… more.

When “more” just happens to show up on her doorstep one night, she finally has the opportunity to find the purpose she’s been looking for. And the revenge.

But first she must convince her overprotective family that leaving their home and fighting an evil bigger than Zombies is the right thing to do. Except they don’t want to listen.

Until the fight follows them home. Until it destroys every semblance of peace and illusion of security they’ve worked so hard for.

They’re not safe anymore.

And until they kill Matthias Allen, Zombies are the least of their problems.

Love and Decay: Revolution is a Dystopian Romance Novella Series about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with. Every episode is approximately 20,000 words long and released every two weeks. Look for Love and Decay: Revolution, Episode Three coming January 8th, 2016.

My take...

This was about more than killing a man that should have been dead nine years ago. This was more than revenge and personal justice.
This was about rescuing humanity...this was about the future of our planet.
This was about something so much bigger than just me.
And once I could get the world to believe that we could start over, we could begin to rebuild and eradicate the Zombie outbreak.
But first I had to kill Matthias Allen.

When what should have been a simple job of heading out, finding the zombie making the racket and ending its pathetic, decaying life...ended up being more that all that. Something about this job didn't seem right from the start. And when the place the Parkers have been calling home the past several years is jeopardized, the family begins to wonder if they are being set up. But, by who? And why?

From the start, Higginson sets a tone that flows through the entire episode. A tone of uncertainty. A feeling of unease. Not just for the characters, but the reader as well. We have been sitting right next to them this entire time...experiencing this crazy journey and all the feels that have come along with it. So to feel so strongly about what the author is trying to get out there, can only mean that something huge is about to take place. A change is coming and it may very well be one that not many are going to like: character or reader.

Higginson really has out done herself with this version of Love and Decay. I love seeing this new Page that we never got to see before because she was so young. The story is shaping up very nicely and I cannot wait to see what wild ride the author has planned for us over the next several books. 5 Let’s Do This Stars!
