Dying Days

Before now, my only exposure to the Dying Days series by Armand Rosamilia has been in the State of Horror anthologies that I adore. 

So of course while dinking around on Amazon, I found the Dying Days series available for reading. I started with what was labeled as the prequel- Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer. It was a collection of short stories devoted to one of the main characters in the Dying Days series. 

The prequel novella shows us how Darlene started off in the zombpocalypse in Maine and made her way to Florida. I did not go into reading this expecting to see anyone from the State of Horror stories because I knew those were events occurring elsewhere in the zombpocalypse. (sorry folks, no friendships via hatchback or zombicanes)

I was so entranced in the world of Dying Days, I had the novella read in less than an hour. Totally enchanted with the characters I got to meet (and naturally the other jackasses that run around in these sorts of things), I immediately downloaded books 1-4 and pre-ordered book 5.

In the span of 4 hours, I devoured the prequel and 4 books (*burp* delicious) in the main series.

So I'm going to wait for book 5 before I really sit down and do a take on the series so far, but I really have enjoyed what I've read and hope others take the time to read this series as well.

Although if you want zombies that go "braaaaaains," try down the hall, second door on the right. These aren't those zombies and massive kudos to the author for it!

  1. Wow. That is very cool! I'm glad you enjoyed the series so far... just an FYI... there are other offshoot books and stories in the Dying Days world as well, and you just might run into a few characters you already know...
