Dying Days: Origins
Tosha finds herself alone in the world ravished by the zombie apocalypse when her twin sister is attacked, bitten, and put down by a neighbor. She joins forces with the neighbor, but things don’t go as planned.
Her depression makes her survival hard. She eventually ventures out and comes in contact with other living people…but they aren’t friendly.
Will she survive it all and be able to move on?
(There are a couple of short stories following other characters at the end of the book.)
I enjoyed the characterization in Dying Days: Origins, which I think is Author Armand Rosamilia’s strongest asset. However, I was disappointed with some grammar and inconsistencies in the story. For example: Tosha was outside in the cold, wearing multiple layers of clothes and then, just a short time later when she comes inside, is doing a strip tease with only one pair of jeans on.
I give this book: 2 QUILLS
Still Dying: Select Scenes from Dying Days
This is a collection of stories that follow various characters from other Dying Days titles as they enter the zombie apocalypse: Jeff Beesler; Russ “Madman” Meyer; David Monsour; Michael Ross; Steve “The Breeze” Brack; Noah Stern; M.J. O’Neill; Brenda Ellis; Morris Chambers; Tosha Shorb; The Conner Family; and Armand Rosamilia.
Still Dying: Select Scenes from Dying Days is a collection of backstories of various characters in the Dying Days series. They are well written, entertaining, and interesting. Grammar mistakes are few and far between.
I give this book: 3 QUILLS
Because of the shortcomings of the first title in the set, I give this book an overall rating of 2 QUILLS.
