Pros: New venue; decent characters; good writing
Cons: It’s good but not great
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Baileigh Higgins’s Last Another Day (Dangerous Days – Zombie Apocalypse Book 1) stands out among the other Kindle Unlimited zombie firsts I’ve been sampling. This may seem like a small thing, but I love that it’s set in South Africa. Finally, a new location! It alters some of the common assumptions and character actions, automatically bringing a sense of the new.
The writing is good, with basically interesting characters (although they could have used more depth still). There’s a sense of family that permeates this narrative; it’s a nice difference. Rather than have a focus on weaponry or battles (although those are present), the focus is on community, staying alive, and being human. There’s even a burgeoning serial killer in the midst to keep things unusual.
Most of the book is smack dab in the middle in terms of quality, so this is a short review. All things considered though, if you’re like me and have a weird obsession with zombie novels, this might not be a bad one to try out.
