Told in the first person, this is story-telling at breakneck speed, full of bizarre monsters. There are no new ideas here, but it's entertaining enough for those who like this genre.
Can Dru survive long enough to find who her friends really are, and who turned her dad into a zombie?
If you like the comfort of knowing, at the beginning, that your heroine is going to make it out alive, then fear not. Obviously, as this is the first in a series, we know Dru's not going to come to a gruesome end.
