Unfed~ Quick Review

Number of Pages: 278

Genre: Zombies, Apocalyptic, Horror

Synopsis (Found on Goodreads.com)

Fresh meat! From a hospital of horrors to a runaway zombie train, it's an all-new onslaught of the slavering undead in the sequel to Kirsty McKay's killer debut!

Just when you think you're out...it's the morning after the night of the return of the living dead. Or something like that. After running/bus-driving/snowboarding for her life alongside rebel Smitty, geeky Pete, and popular Alice, Bobby thought she'd found the antidote to the Carrot Man Veggie Juice that had turned the rest of their classmates into zombies. When Smitty (mmm...nom, nom) got chomped, Bobby pumped a syringe full of it into him herself.

But now Bobby's a prisoner in some hospital of horrors, with no clue how she got there. And Smitty is missing. What if he isn't cured after all? Bobby knows she's got to find him, even if it means facing Scotland's hungry hordes -- plus Alice's buckets of snark -- again. And this time, zombies aren't the only evil stressing her out. The brain-dead are bad enough, but how can Bobby stop the big pharma business behind the epidemic? Especially when her own mom works for the company?

My Review:

This book was awesome. Its a sequel but its still a great and entertaining read. 

This book picks up right where "Undead" left off. The basic plot of the story is that Bobby is now trapped in a Xanthro hospital (the company that created the zombie virus), alone and she has to find a way out. She and other survivors have to find a way out of the zombie infested hospital and find Smitty who is missing. I can't really say too much more because I don't want to give anything away. Of course there are a lot of zombies so Bobby and her group have to fight them BUT the Xanthro company also sent people to capture Bobby, so they also have to fight and escape from them too.

Once again this book is full of humor. The main characters have great one liners that had me cracking up the entire time. Bobby is so hilarious with her sarcasm, weird thoughts and witty remarks. She hasn't changed much from the first book. She is still a survivor, a fighter and feisty. She is not perfect, she gets hurt and she gets into scrapes with zombies where you wonder how she survives. But all the while, even when confronting zombies or soldiers, she always says or thinks something that will make you laugh or giggle. 

This book is full of gore and gross descriptions of zombies. The faces or the bodies of the zombies are described in enough detail that you can picture them in your mind and its very creepy. The plot is good, although it can far fetched where everything that goes wrong for the characters gets righted but I feel like this book was meant to be that way. It was very entertaining.

I liked the ending because it was an ending that ended the storyline in this book for the most part but its open enough to perhaps continue the story in another book. If the author plans on extending the series to another book I am all for it and would love to read it.
