Synopsis: Eve used to be an ordinary girl, from an ordinary town, with ordinary dreams, but her dreams rapidly turn into nightmares when one grave mistake leaves her a little less than human and a lot less average.
Eve’s not quite the same girl she used to be. She desperately clings to her humanity as new desires, new abilities, and new urges take over with each passing day.
Eve Brenner: Zombie Girl is a tale that takes you on an emotional and terrifying journey as Eve struggles to cope with her new life and find a cure for her strange illness before time runs out. She desperately clings to her humanity as she tries to control the monster she knows is lurking inside her.
Turns out living was the easy part.
Review: EVE BRENNER: ZOMBIE GIRL is a unique take on this very popular genre. The way the zombie virus was created and spread was an interesting twist, especially since there were different ‘levels’ of zombieness dependent on how the virus was contracted. EVE BRENNER: ZOMBIE GIRL is told through three narrators: Eve, and her best friends Alex and Cam. I enjoyed how EVE BRENNER: ZOMBIE GIRL is a tale of human vs. animalistic (base) instincts. The fight scenes were well-executed, but to me the romance aspects didn’t flow naturally. Eve’s struggle with her altered nature is what really drew me into the book and Eve was definitely my favorite character. While Alex and Cam were a good support system for Eve, for the most part they didn’t seem to add a whole lot to the story. If you’re looking for a fresh take on the zombie story, check out EVE BRENNER: ZOMBIE GIRL. I think EVE BRENNER: ZOMBIE GIRL is well suited for YA & NA readers alike.
