REVIEW: OVERRUN BY BRIAN CLOPPER

OVERRUN
TURNCOATS #1
BRIAN CLOPPER
GENRE: HORROR/YA

For high-schooler Nathan Bristol, finding out his sister's best friend, Trina Bivens, has come back as a zombie is the least of his problems. While she may not have a hankering for his flesh, her visions predict the world will soon be overrun by zombies who do. Further, she reveals Nathan will play a huge part in saving the world. The boy can't even make it through third period Chemistry without making a mess of things, much less stop a zombie apocalypse. What follows is a harrowing race to rescue his mother, deliver his family from teeth-chomping danger and maybe, just maybe, save the world. BOOK ONE: OVERRUN deals with Trina and Nathan's tenuous relationship with each other and the rest of the world. Branded as turncoats by zombies and humans alike, the two must forge a bond that will help them save Nathan's family and put them on the road together to save the world from the evil entity that has released the undead.
Due to this being a Young Adult Horror series, it's suitable for ages 13 and up. It contains violence and loads of zombie mayhem. Trust me, it might leave the youngsters feeling a bit queasy and unsettled at bedtime.





MY RATING: 4 STARS

Overrun is a pretty solid story from start to finish by Brian Clopper. This story is geared toward YA/Horror audience and won't leave them disappointed.

I really liked the characters Clopper created. Nathan and Trina are a great zombie-fighting duo. Lots of action and lots of zombies! However, you won't find an ending to the zombie break-out in this book. You will have to wait for the second book, which I don't believe is out yet.

I did run into a few typos in the Kindle edition, but it wasn't enough to detract from the story.

Overall, this is a fun read and highly recommended!

Thanks for the honest review. Any chance you could send me a few of those typos you found so I can update the book? I appreciate the help. I have 3 beta readers, but they don't always catch everything. The second book is scheduled to come out Spring of 2014.

You are very welcome! I really enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one.

There weren't many typos, but a few. I'll run back through the book and get back to you on those typos. I'm always willing to help an author out :)
