Title: Thicker Than Blood
Author: Madeline Sheehan & Claire C. Riley
Series: Book #1
A true friendship never dies.
Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other, and a friendship that could withstand anything…
Even an apocalypse.
Until one fateful night, the marginal safety they’d come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end. With the help of Alex & Jami, both unlikely allies, Leisel and Evelyn are able to escape their shattered sanctuary only to find themselves face-to-face with a much altered, much crueler life where they have to find the way—and the will—to stay alive in a world they no longer recognize.
Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country; the road-weary group are pitted against endless violence, improbable circumstances, and the ultimate loss.
Everything comes at a price—especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they’ve tried so hard to cling to: their humanity.
Yet along with all the trials they’re forced to endure, there’s also hope in the form of love. Having loved Leisel from afar, Alex attempts to put the pieces of her fractured heart back together.
But in such a savage world, is there room for love?
In a place of nightmares-made-reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love amongst all odds can mean the difference between life and death.
There are friends…
And then there are Leisel and Evelyn.
Now I had no clue what this book was going to be about. I didn’t even bother reading the blurb because well I have read the biker books that Madeline Sheehan put out. I just saw that she put out another book and I wanted to read it, so I got started on it and this is the first book that I have read that is zombies. 🙂 I wasn’t sure if I was really going to like it or not because I didn’t know how it was going to play out but I have to admit that I did like it.
I enjoyed reading about the connection these two women had, how they would do anything to keep each other safe. I will have to say that their journey is not easy and it is not all happy and rainbows. There are bumps and turns that they have to go through that I couldn’t imagine having to go through. I wasn’t sure if there was going to be another book until you get to the end. I will read the next one that comes out. I want to know what happens. I liked that we got two points of views, from both of the girls.
I actually enjoyed this…it was heart breaking as well as interesting and did a good job at keeping you interested in the story. Well done. 🙂
