A duo of zombie tales by best selling author Kelley Armstrong.

LIFE SENTENCE
As other Cabals look to vampires for the cure to mortality, Daniel Boyd sets his sights on the “other” undead: zombies. Of course, finding volunteers for his experiments proves a bit of a challenge, but when a man only has six months to live, he’s willing to break a few rules.

LAST STAND
In the aftermath of a zombie virus outbreak, a troop of soldiers fights to save their people from extinction. But there’s something a little different about this particular group of survivors...

Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?

What did I think about Life Sentence?

Two Short Stories Of Urban Fantasy Horror That Felt Like Full Novels

Kelley Armstrong is a new-to-me author but I was blown away by her ability to draw me in and keep me hooked in so few pages.

Both of these short stories – Life Sentence and Last Stand – had characters that felt real and believable, the world was fleshed out enough to come alive in my mind, both of the plots developed at a good pace and even had surprising twists that caught me off guard. I think that it is the tell of a talented author to make you so engrossed that you forget that you’re reading a short story rather than a novel.

I will definitely be reading more of Ms Armstrong’s work, I’m looking forward to seeing what she can accomplish in a full-length novel. 😉

About Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong believes experience is the best teacher, though she’s been told this shouldn’t apply to writing her murder scenes. To craft her books, she has studied aikido, archery and fencing. She sucks at all of them. She has also crawled through very shallow cave systems and climbed half a mountain before chickening out. She is however an expert coffee drinker and a true connoisseur of chocolate-chip cookies.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini-review. I hope I’ve sparked your interest.
