Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they’re headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored “Wall.” They’re feeling pretty optimistic.
That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects.
Eat. Slay. Love.
Because they haven’t got a prayer. (Source: Goodreads)
OMG! Did the ending of Flip This Zombie just bring you to tears? It should have. The Mad Scientist had me WORRIED. I really thought he may be the end of David and Sarah, but in a blaze of glory it wasn’t. *sigh of relief* Heading to the Wall with a little HOPE in their hearts, our favorite zombie killing couple’s woes are not over. These two are going to add to their merry duo a paparazzi journalist and ex-rocker. It will remain to be seen if these two can be trusted or prove themselves to be a big pain in the butt. They are going to face some overwhelming situations. CRAZIES in Oklahoma and a government COVER-UP at the Wall.
Aside from the crazy amount of near-death action Sarah and David stir up, they discover potentially an even bigger problem. David has acquired some new attributes. He has developed unnatural strength for the ex-gamer. Not that Sarah doesn’t enjoy the new six-pack he is toting, she is a little worried. It gets worse as she discovers that he breathes out more than he breathes in. CREEPY. And it gets more bizarre. So what does this mean? And who will want to make David a guinea pig?
Eat Slay Love continues where Flip This Zombie left off, this couple would willing die for the other. It is sweet. It is fierce-some. It is almost mushy at times. But in the end, I really like the place that David and Sarah have arrived at in their marriage. I teared up from their loss. I pumped fist at the victories. Maybe therapist should prescribe a good old-fashion Zombie Apocalypse for struggling couples. If they are meant to be they survive, if not they didn’t love each other enough to make it.
Zombie Hell is no place without the one that completes you.
