Zombie Showcase: The Reapers Are The Angels

In pre-Halloween fashion for all you zombie lovers, I wanted to showcase some of my favorite Z-reads.

Just in case you meant to add this one to your TBR pile, or simply missed out altogether - you MUST read The Reapers Are the Angels by Alden Bell.

This is perhaps one of the absolute pinky-swear BEST zombie reads ever.

I say this because Reapers is packed with well-developed characters, forward

driven dialogue, and emotionally intimate insight that tears your guts out ... well, just like one of the undead.

Combination Southern gothic and dystopian survivalism, Reapers is far more than just another flesh eating flash-in-the-pan kind of tale. Temple, the central character, just about breaks the reader's heart with her brutal self-honesty and her naive insistence on survival in a world wracked by a plague of the undead.

So don't let this gem of a book slip through your grubby little book-lovin' paws. Buy or Borrow, but do give Reapers a whirl~
