Worth a Read

By Lyn Thorne-Alder, author of Side Quest

Jan 9, 2017: I read this story – what there is of it so far – in one sitting, and found it engrossing, the kind of story that keeps me on the edge of my seat.

I have so many questions, which means I’ll come back to it over and over again, hoping my questions get answers – who is Bishop? What is going on?

This story builds suspense well. I am not always a fan of prologues, but this one got me involved in the story before I’d barely started reading. The world that is built is our own world – and yet not. The surveillance state is entirely believable; the slight deviations from our world make the story that much more creepy.

Although it’s titled After Z-Day and subtitled "zompocalypse," I haven’t encountered any zombies yet. This isn’t a deal-breaker for me, but it does speak to a slow-burn sort of start that is more in my tastes than it might be in others’.

Well-written, intriguing, and with an interesting hook, After Z-Day is worth a read.
