Zombie Rules (Zombies Rules #1) by David Achord

zombie rules

Zombie Rules is the first book in the Zombie Rules series by author David Achord. This book is about zombies (if the title didn’t give that away).

The story starts out in the present day. Then it flashes back to a short time before the zombie apocalypse started.  Zach Gunderson is a sophomore in high school. His girlfriend is Macie and his best friend is Felix. Macie and he have been together for three months and consummated their relationship. Zack ends up being pulled away from track. He goes to the parking lot to find Rick there who ends up taking him to the hospital.

Zack’s grandma had a stroke and was found by the mailman. She looked frail in the hospital but things didn’t look good for her. She ends up dying a day or two later. Rick ends up talking to Zack and he decides to go live with Rick on the farm that Rick manages for an older couple. Felix and his father go over and help pack the few things up and put it in the trailer Rick and brought along.

The world goes to hell. My monitoring the Ham Radio, they keep track of how the disease is spreading. They use different colored push pins to indicate a low, moderate or downright fall of a city. Within a week, everyplace is red. Rick and Zack maintain the farm and go on scouting missions. While out they come across a family: Don, Janet, Tommy and Julie.

They bring the family back to their place but kick them out a few days later when the family decides they are going to double-cross Rick and Zack. They move on with their lives and one night, Rick dies in his sleep. Zack buries him and keeps on with his life. Things get a whole lot more terrifying and interesting before the end of the book for our characters.


Zack is a character that I like. He doesn’t give himself enough credit as to all that he has accomplished. He creates these rules about zombies and spray paints the rules wherever he can when he adds new ones. By the end of the book, we’re up to ten rules. Mostly, they’re just observations but they make great rules when it comes to the zombies.

There are a few characters that I absolutely hate and I’m glad that some of them end up the way they do. There are a few grammatical errors in here but only a few, nothing that interrupts with the flow of the story or that bars you from figure out what is meant. The story flows well and it’s a good read.

David Achord was a new to me author and I’m really glad I took a chance on this book. I have the second book in the series and am going to be starting it shortly!!

My Devouring Love #3: Surviving the Dead by Donna Neville-Theiler

Surviving the Dead

I’ve read four of the other books in this series, the first two books and two novellas that go with it. I really enjoy the works by this author. I will say, this book needs a little bit of editing done with it. There’s some punctuation and wrong words used but still a good read overall.

———————————

Jeremiah, Abby, Ava, Gary and others return. From book two we knew that Ava and one of the boys, Connor or Jeremiah, made it out of Connor’s place unscathed while the other was bitten. But we didn’t know which was going to end up among the undead masses. They make it to where everyone else is, that survived the ambush anyways. Jeremiah goes on a run with Gary, Marshall and Tyler while Connor stays laid up in the office of the warehouse they’re in. Connor ends up perishing a few hours later but not before making Jeremiah promise he will keep Abby and Ava safe.

There’s so much going on that I just don’t know what to tell ya’ll and what not too. Abby, Jeremiah and Gary end up separated from everyone else but try to make it to the meet up point they had all designated. There are a lot of trials and errors before the end of this book.

———————————

There’s a lot of loss in this book. We loose several of our favorite and beloved characters, one of which is Connor. I won’t name anyone else that dies but just know that I cried a few times reading this book. I love this series. I’m pretty sure with the way it was left the series is over but I really hope there is more too it! I really hope this series doesn’t end the way this book leaves off. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great point to stop it but I REALLY like this series and want it to keep going. Am I being selfish? I’ll admit to being that way when it comes to this series and wanting it to continue! 😀
