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…

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…

Review of Dead Tropics Audio Book by The Guilded Earlobe

Dead Tropics by Sue Edge

Read by Cynthia Barrett

Published by Audible Frontiers/Permuted Press

Length: 9 Hrs

Genre: Zombie Outbreak

Quick Thoughts: While Dead Tropic has a pretty standard Zombie Outbreak plot, its unique setting and kick ass heroine gives it just enough edge to stand out in a crowded field.  Edge creates some incredibly cruel situations for her survivors, forcing her heroine to make decisions that will frustrate, thrill and shake the emotions of the readers. Sadly, the narrators inability to engage with the text blunted the visceral nature of some of the more graphic scenes of the novel.

Grade: B-
