SCAVENGERS by Nate Southard (Sinister Grin Press)
This is the story of mankind’s plight against the surmounting and inevitable terror of starvation, the burden of survival and the finality of death. And just like death, Nate Southard’s take on the post zombie aftermath is unavoidable as it grips you from page one and never lets go.
Published by Sinister Grin Press, SCAVENGERS starts right off in the middle of the action (like all great stories tend to do). Southard tells the tale of the small town of Millwood and a group of people holed up in a church. Their food is gone and time is running out. Names are drawn for the suicide mission that, if successful, will bring back nourishment and give them all a fighting chance at life again.
But outside, armies of undead await. And they hunger!
The characters are solid and relatable and Southard’s writing always has a way of keeping me glued to the pages till the end. Buckets of gore, plenty of action and an unshakable plot make this one a must read. The novel is quick and I finished it in one sitting, but in this day and age, fast reads that are easy to finish in one setting are worth every damn penny. (Chuck Rios)
