4*Review: THE KEY TO SURVIVAL by Kate L Mary #zombies #novella


Author: Kate L Mary

Source: KU for Kindle


After finding her fiancé in a compromising position, Jane heads to a private island resort in Key West to clear her head. There she meets Austin, six years younger than she is and the exact opposite of her fiancé in every way, he seems like the perfect prescription to cure her heartbreak. But everything changes when the virus that had previously only been a minor nuisance morphs into a full-blown epidemic. Four miles from the mainland and surrounded by ocean, Austin and Jane believe they’re safe from what’s happening in the world, but a virus knows no borders, and it isn’t long before other guests start coming down with the illness.

Zombie isn’t a word that anyone likes to throw around, but it’s the only explanation the couple can think of when one of the other hotel guests tries to eat Austin’s face off. As things go from bad to worse and Jane leans on Austin more and more, she soon finds herself wondering if her little trip to Florida wasn’t just the key to her survival, but also the key to finding a man who will love her the way she deserves.

My quick take…

I stayed up late reading a few books by Mary the other night, this being one of them. Now while I did enjoy THE KEY TO SURVIVAL, there was one or two things that sat wrong with me. But not much for me to hate the story. I just hated that one of the characters was pressured into doing something that I don’t feel they were comfortable with. I cannot really fault anyone for it, because in the end, it did lead to that character being more open. Not only with themselves, but with everyone.

THE KEY TO SURVIVAL, like the others in this novella series, was packed full of zombie action, romance and apocalyptic goodness. 4 Stars!
