The Prisoner of the Dead: Zombie Thriller Dystopia (Dead World Book 1)The Prisoner of the Dead: Zombie Thriller Dystopia by Megan Mackie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Now, I am not into books about zombies but I do love dystopian novels so figured I would give this one a try. The author does a fantastic job building this dystopian world that makes you feel as though you are a part of it. The characters are intricate, mysterious and sometimes annoying just like the people we meet in everyday life.

We start out meeting Baron who seems to be from nowhere but is a survivalist in the midst of a viral outbreak that not only kills its host but brings them back to life as the undead. When he needs a fix on his bike he rolls into this seemingly idyllic town that is not like anywhere he has been. First off, this town has no zombies that he can see and the people are interacting, happy in their everyday lives. While his bike is getting fixed he meets an undead and is ceremoniously attacked by the townspeople where he ends up killing a man. This man happens to be attached to a very attractive female who is immortal and now Baron finds himself at her mercy having to take the place of her companion and protector. This starts a whirlwind adventure for Baron as he works with Talia to find an end to this viral outbreak as well as learn more about his past. However, this virus seems to erupt in cycles and with so many trials the duo must survive before they can figure out how Talia might be the cure to what is infecting the human race. This book was full of twists, turns, and action that makes you fall in love with the characters while also despising their flaws. I will definitely keep my eye out for any upcoming books in this series and read through them to see what comes next!
