Review by Pink Ray Gun

Dead Tropicsby Sue Edge, is a zombie novel for moms.

Lori is like most moms with hectic lives. She’s regularly dashing to keep up with the home and her kids, she drives everyone everywhere and, if she’s lucky, she might even make it to work on time. She’s a widow, so she does it mostly on her own, with some support from her brother and sister. Life is crazy and Lori doesn’t have much time to stop, think, and catch her breath, but it’s her life and, other than losing her husband, she wouldn’t change much about it…

Book Review at Patrick D’Orazio’s Blog

This is a zombie tale that definitely speeds along at a rapid pace.  Many undead stories that focus on the outbreak itself try to keep the energy level up throughout the story but tend to slow the tempo down at one point or another.  Such is not the case here, where the energy level remains high throughout, with barely any time for the reader to breath.  Of course, the somewhat unique angle played here is that Lori is a mother, and a fairly normal one at that.  She isn’t a superhero or has any special skills outside of the fact that she is a nurse, which does come in handy when an attempt is made to stop infection from spreading from a bite suffered by a loved one.  Other than that, the only thing that Lori seems to possess out of the ordinary is a stubborn determination to protect her family and to be a leader who takes charge of every situation they confront.  All in all, she is a realistic character that does her best, failing and succeeding in making good choices along the way, like most of us would do under the same circumstances…

From Triffids to Zombies

I blame my love of zombies on triffids.
Until I was twelve years old, my reading list was pretty tame.  It consisted of classics like the Prisoner of Zenda, horse stories such as My Friend Flicka and cute mysteries like Trixie Belden.  My deepest desires were to uncover a jewellery heist in the neighborhood and to own a horse that ran like the wind (courtesy of Black Stallion).
And then I read The Day of the Triffids.  A meteor that renders the world blind.  Flesh-hungry walking plants that roam the streets.  What a dream combination!

“Does anything get better than a mother trying to save her children from killer zombies in a tropical rainforest? I mean, it’s like the perfect equation for gore and suspense!

Dead Tropics actually surprised me with how fast the story jumped into the action. But even though it moved quickly, I still had enough time to actually care about all of the characters – which is pretty rare.”

Author Sue Edge recently shared a copy of her novel Dead Tropics with me, which, to my immense pleasure, proved to be a rather fantastic contribution to zombie literature. Delivered in a wonderfully natural voice, the story explores the trials and challenges of a determined mother in the midst of an undead outbreak…

Now ranked 5000th on Amazon!

With an overall ranking in the 5000s this week, my book is ranked 36 in its horror-occult genre.  It is nice to see that it is getting noticed by readers.
