Barely Alive Book Tour




***This is a MATURE YA themed series. There are adult themes and strong language.***

In twelve weeks, seventeen-year-old Paul Ledger will be dead. At least he hopes so.

Paul is trapped in the worst cult the United States has ever seen. Infected with a zombie virus, symptoms culminate in a dead body but thriving mind over a course of twelve weeks. If he doesn’t earn the final death he longs for, he’ll be chained in a basement facility, moaning for human flesh for eternity.

Sent out to kidnap girls for food, toys, or whatever the boss wants, Paul nabs Heather McCain. He’s not a fan of humans as a general rule, but even his graying skin and insatiable hunger for her flesh don’t stop her from reaching out to him. Give him the second chance he doesn’t know he needs.

Overcome by his cravings, Paul bites her delectable skin. Amazingly, she doesn’t develop the zombie-like side effects. When the boss discovers Heather’s immunity, he gives Paul an ultimatum – deliver up Heather and her family to continue the research or watch as Paul’s brother suffers the zombie fate.

Paul has a chance to endure his short zombie existence knowing his brother is safe. But he’ll have to sacrifice Heather to do it.

My Review
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  This novel is unlike any other zombie novel I have ever read.  Paul, although being transformed into a zombie staves off his cravings to save Heather.  Although when sent to kidnap the girls, he'd bitten her, somehow she didn't transform.  Could she be the key for a cure to save him and those like him?  I guess you'll have to read it to find out.  This book was awesome and so difficult to put down.  It held my attention throughout, I can't wait to read book two to see what happens next.

  1. Zombies are really popular now. Is this a clean read or is it for adults? I think my son might like this book.

    1. It's a YA novel, pretty clean only some swearing.
