ZOMBIES: Review - 'Zombiestan' by Mainak Dhar is a wild ride

Bowie V. Ibarra

You thought the concept of the Zombie Apocalypse was bad.  How about a Zombie Jihad Apocalypse?

That's just the twist that Mainak Dhar adds to the tried and true zombie apocalypse concept in his magnificent title, Zombiestan.

Look, if you can accept the possibility of a zombie apocalypse, then you need to accept the possibility that is central to the books' plot.  The story is about a bizarre zombie plague unleashed by a chemical weapon that makes its victims and subsequent folks they infect become jihadists.  These zombie jihad members are hard to put down, and are most aggressive by night.  A navy SEAL joins two young children and a toddler on a journey across India to escape the madness.  The journey poses challenges to all of them as they face not only the wild zombies, but cruel humans as well.

The story delivers on all the proper zombie apoc fronts:  Great blood, great action, great story.  But the book has themes even deeper than that, including the coming of age of a young man in the story, love, friendship, and courage.

This is a unique and effective title that you need to pick up now in paperback or kindle.  'Zombiestan' is a bold title that explodes in the reader's hands with plenty of zombie action and an amazing amount of heart.  Pick it up today HERE.
