I absolutely have to share this book I just finished! I recommend it to anyone who loves a good story...not just zombie lovers.

I have read many zombie novels in the last few years. Usually, it's the same basic story with a few modifications. The character development is often lacking and there's no real way to feel connected to the people trying to escape the living dead. However, Induction (Time of Death) was a refreshing change of pace.

The story revolves around Emma, her husband (Jake) and her beloved Yorkie (Daphne.) When a quick-spreading virus brings their world to a crashing halt, they are on a desperate mission to find any safe place they can find.

The premise may sound familiar, but the difference here is the character development. The main character (Emma) is smart, funny, snarky and believable. I could definitely connect with her and even see myself saying and doing some of the things that she does throughout the book. I found myself laughing out loud at times. Other times, my heart caught in my throat as I waited to see how she would escape a dangerous situation. I can truly say I loved Emma's character and I can't wait for the next installment.

This book was highly enjoyable and I was thoroughly entertained. The characters and the story were both convincing. It takes a talented writer to make me believe something that I know doesn't exist. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
