Good Monday Morning , hope everyone had a great weekend full of reading great books . I know I was reading three books. This is one of them ZOMBIE ATTACK - RISE OF THE HORDE by Devan Sagliani

                      BOOK BLURB
Amazon Bestseller, Voted best Zombie/Horror E-books of 2012 on Goodreads

'Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde' is everything the blurb promises it to be, and much, much more! A tale of despair and sacrifice, small precious victories, farewells and reunions, and subtle spirituality, "Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde" is a book I would highly recommend to readers looking for an enormously thrilling story with a degree of depth to it. As the book ends with a bit of a cliff hanger, I sincerely hope that we'll soon see more books from this brilliant author."

Books for Tomorrow, 5 of 5 star review

"Whoa! This book is a super exciting fast paced trip! I enjoyed it greatly. So will I be buying the next book? Hell yes I will. Without a doubt!"

Contagious Reads, Lori

"An excellent composition of prose, action, dialogue and foreshadowing is Rise of The Horde that is indicative of a well-seasoned story teller. Devan Sagliani's endeavor is tremendous in luring readers into anticipating more and more. Whether you're an avid reader or been bitten by the curiosity bug in zombielore, there's a little something for everyone in Rise of The Horde."

Horror News, Dave Gammon

"Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde by Devan Sagliani is the book you, your friends, and your kids (provided they like sweet gory violence) should be reading. I mean it. If I had sum it up... I would say, "What the hell are you still doing here? Why haven't you bought it yet?"

The Geekest

"Novice author Devan Sagliani breathes new life into a tired over indulgent genre. His concept of appealing to a mass audience is firmly grasped and unrelenting. Once delving into the narrative of this novella, the tale becomes infectious and downright addictive. Many avid readers will have difficulty putting it down." Rick Amortis, Hellnotes

When 16 year old Xander's older brother Moto left him at Vandenberg Airforce Base he only had one request - don't leave no matter what. But there was no way he could have known that one day zombies would gather into groups big enough to knock down walls and take out entire buildings full of people. That was before the rise of the horde!

Now Xander is on the run, fleeing south to Port Hueneme to locate his brother with nothing but his martial arts training and the katana blade left to him. Along the way he'll have to fight for his life against other survivors, neo-Nazi's, outlaw bikers, gang bangers, cannibals, cult members, and a seemingly endless sea of flesh hungry zombies.

But Xander is far from alone. Traveling with him are Benji, a 12 year old comic book geek, and Felicity Jane, a childhood celebrity with wild mood swings. Will they make it together in one piece to the safe zone or will they become the next meal for a hungry horde of wild zombies?

Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde is filled with pulse pounding undead action from the very first chapter up until the bitter sweet end. From rock stars and celebrities to false prophets and miracle workers, this book has it all! The story takes off like a bullet and doesn't slow down until the last sentence. You won't be able to put it down!
So I started reading this book on Sunday afternoon as part of my Zombie apocalypse day . I started in the afternoon and honestly couldn't put the book down. This is a different book to most zombie books . We go on the road with some young people . They are brought together through tragedy. Of loosing parents and other love ones . The story centers around Xander and his traveling companions . Felicity Jane and Benji. As they travel to find Xander's older brother . As the horde builds and they fight their way towards the safety zone. Will they make it the zone, find Xander's brother and survive
The characters in this book are written with such care and you feel what they are going through with every turn of the page . You have the hero, a young man wielding a Katana and using his martial arts skills to help them survive the horde. The young boy, Benji who is loves comic books and video games . Then there is Felicity Jane , the pretty girl that well like any woman has wild mood swings . Oh we even have a religious cult that uses strangers for zombie food for their caged zombies . Oh and also do human sacrifices. What good zombie doesn't have the power hungry zealot in them. You get taken on a grand adventure with these characters. You feel their pain , their loneliness and you feel the despair that they are going through. The author has taken such care when writing these characters. I love them all
There is blood and gore in this book from the very first page. There is a lot of action that everyone will love . It is a book that everyone from your teenager to you will enjoy. I find that it is the young adult version of the walking dead. The author has done a great job in creating the characters and the story line was great, one of survival on so many levels . The author puts us through the wringer a few times and trust me  between it all you , you will cheer for these guys so much . I would recommend this book to anyone that loves zombies . So if you like THE WALKING DEAD , you will like this book. So check it out. I promise you will not be disappointed .
