horror, End Times Saga, James Dixon, book review, On My Kindle

Summary

It is the end of times; much of the world's population have become zombies. The few humans that have remained uninfected form groups in a desperate attempt to survive. Mo and Juno met in one of these groups and, in spite of the dire circumstances, developed a friendship that evolved into love.

Will their love for each other help them to survive, or will it lead them to doom?

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Review

At first glance, Love in the End Times by James Dixon may seem like your typical zombie apocalypse novel; however, readers that decide to give the book a chance will be pleasantly surprised by this compelling short story.

The characters are pretty well developed for a short story as Dixon provides readers some history on how the zombie apocalypse started and provides a little information about the characters' pre-apocalypse lives. Another pleasant surprise was Dixon's writing style. I expected a gritty, gory, and urban novel; however, Dixon's writing style leans toward poetic, which is unexpected and unique in a genre where gore and graphic details prevail.

I was a little disappointed by what seemed to be an abrupt ending. I felt that it ended just as the story was reaching a pivotal point, and when I was becoming emotionally invested in the characters. Hopefully the author will pick up where he left off in the next installment of the End Times Saga.
If you enjoy zombie apocalypse books, but do not have time to read a lengthy novel, Love in the End Times by James Dixon is a good choice for you.
