Book tagline:

Ravaged by a global zombie pandemic, humanity’s survival depends on the secret society of shifters, but can they be trusted?

Book Blurb:

Dr. Dora Adler’s life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead her whole world is turned upside down. Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation. Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf. Yeah, and she’s supposedly a witch.

Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf. Captured and collared, he’s sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine. He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch.

In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora’s sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway. Along their journey, they
battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.

I admit that I have been on a zombie kick lately.  I love the whole “Walking Dead” gruesomeness, and reading about survivors just trying to maintain a foothold in the new order.  This book excites me because along with having a strong woman who literally, for some unknown reason, can survive zombie bites, we also get to follow the exploits of Dirk, a werewolf pack leader.  The global pandemic is forcing opposing factions to cooperate, and the results are often explosive. 
This paranormal action romance kept me tied to my kindle…even when the battery ran low I read tethered to the power cord.  The set-up begun in this book depicts a world on the brink of absolute collapse.  The first in a planned series, the book leaves questions unanswered, but I thought this story ended well, and at a logical point.  With the survivors in retreat, Dirk and Dora’s forbidden relationship is still unresolved, and could bring about an ideological battle that could further splinter the fragile, hard-won coalition. I am looking forward to more action and adventure in the next book. I love Dirk, and Dora is a worthy companion who can hold her own when the chips are down.
This book was provided to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
