Zombie hunter by day. Storyteller by night.
Sheri spends her days fighting zombies and her nights chained to a wall, earning her every breath by telling stories to her captor Aleksy—stories that make them both forget the ruined world. Sheri could put up with the conditions—at least she knows her sister is safe in the community Aleksy leads—until she realizes she’s falling for him…even though he wants her dead.
When Aleksy allowed Sheri and her sister into his compound, he didn’t know about the zombie bite on her back. It’s only a matter of time before she turns into one of the rising dead and threatens their existence, but Aleksy has a secret need for Sheri and her stories. For everyone’s safety, he chains her to his bedroom wall, hoping for just one more day. But how long will the community allow Aleksy to ignore his own rule: always kill the infected. Always.

One for the weirdos, like me.
If you were a bookish kid like I was you probably know who Scheherazade is, if you don't you probably won't follow the story enough to really enjoy the coolness of it. So look her up if you don't and give this one a whirl.
In this delightfully dark retelling of One Tho... ...more
Combining the classic tale of Scheherazade with zombie horror was a brilliant move, appealing to both the zombie lover and the bibliophile in me like nothing else could have. Perhaps a library isn't one of the first places one... ...more
This dystopian novella was a pleasant surprise, and I really liked that it was something so unique. A woman, bitten by a zombie and feared for what she might become, is chained up to share stories with her captor every night?

I loved the idea of Arabian Nights mixed with end of the world zombie uprising. The protagonist, Sheri was a cool character and reminded me of Katniss from the Hunger Games – only with an edge to her that a YA character would be allowed.
I really enjoyed the book and managed to read it within 2 da... ...more

One Thousand and One Nights by Ruth Browne
"Night was falling as the roar of the Kawasaki’s powerful engine drifted up from the ravine below. The approach to the compound was steep, snaking along a narrow tarred road with crumbling brick margins. Above, the bowl of the blue sky was deepening to in... ...more

I have to say while zombie stories are usually not my thing I really enjoyed this one.
