Book Review: Dying to Live & Fighting to Live Combo - The Zombie Overload Series


Admit it. You think about it, fantasize about it, live through it in your head. But what would you do if zombies became a reality? If you actually were to see the dead walk, attack and kill people you know - who then rise right in front of your eyes? What would you do when the undead don't follow the script you've played out - over and over - in your own mind? 
Find out what happens to a woman in central Illinois when her life is 
turned upside down. Zombies become real and so does the danger. Her 
family means the most to her, but can she keep them alive? Can she keep 
herself alive? 
In this double edition that begins with a novelette, you are a big part of the story. The main character "speaks" to you often and you're invited into her thoughts - which can be quite humorous at times. She's not perfect and she knows it. She strong and she's a fighter...but she doesn't know it.

My Review

This is a combo of both book one and two of the Zombie Overload series by C.M. Wright. This book combo is 241 pages long.

Canada loves her husband and two boys more than her own. When a "virus" happens to break out, Canada has to get her family to a safe place and gather Will, her husband's, family to keep safe, too. Not only are the dead dangerous, but they find that the living are just as dangerous. Many will die and some will go missing. Canada finds two babies and becomes their adopted mother. Jake, the military man that saved their butts many times, is starting to grow closer to Canada. To save herself she has to choose between two people she loves. Who is going to die? Does Canada have the same feelings for Jake? How will Canada survive while keeping her family safe from the zombies?

This was a great book! I liked how the author made you feel part of the book and throughout the book you can feel Canada's tension and anxiety. It did have A LOT of cussing, but the F-Bomb wasn't dropped. It did talk about sex on two occasions, but it wasn't graphic and it was only a question and answer. It is YA or above readers, at least that is my opinion. This book left me guessing and ended with a major cliff-hanger. I can't wait to read the next book!
