Book Description

You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.

Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south.

Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.

My Review

Waking Up Dead by Emma Shortt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was on of the best kick ass Zombie books I have ever read! I am a HUGE Zombie story fan and this book was the bomb! Emma Shortt knows how to keep the readers guessing and how to keep them on the edge of their seats!

Jackson Hart's life sucks! she is constantly on the run for her life, literally, and her one constant her best friend Ty of the last couple of months is missing. After living off of rats Ty and Jackson where looking for food when a pack of Zombies attacked in order kill them all they had to separate. When she runs into Luke trying to escape she almost mistakes him for one of the undead, and when he leads her into his underground home with hot showers and non rat based food she is in heaven.

Luke Granger thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he first saw the girl in front of him running from the Zombies, he hasn't seen others in so long he was starting to believe he was the only one left. Luke is sure that Jackson's friend is probably dead buy will help to look all the same, and when the bunker that he is staying in is found by the Zombies Luke has no choice but to join the journey south looking for survivors which was what Jackson and Ty's original destination.

As they journey further south they start to realize a shift in the Zombie movement, the Zombies are changing, getting smarter and coming together in bigger groups! Whatever will they do now?

This book was sooooo awesome! I couldn't put it down for a min! I loved the characters and the story was so kick ass! My favourite character was Jack, she was so vulnerable and yet so bad ass at the same time. She knew what needed to bed done and doesn't hesitate to do it no matter the cost.

Emma Shortt is a inspirational writer! I would defiantly read more of her work after reading this. her work is bold, exciting and brings you to the edge every time with heartstopping dangers and nail-biting cliffhangers.

if you haven't read this book yet put it on your TBR list today!

About the Author

As a kid Emma wanted to be an astronaut, or maybe Captain Janeway. Because she didn't really think her career choices through very well she ended up in an everyday geek job, crunching numbers and sighing over syntax. It seemed a long way from the stars, and in an effort to escape Emma decided to get serious about her other passion. Writing.

Several years later and Emma has yet to walk on the moon or sit in the Captain's chair, but she is still writing. She scribbles stories in all sorts of genres, contemporary, paranormal, post-apocalyptic, historical, sci-fi...if she hasn't tried it yet she will before long. The only common theme is the romance. A hopeless romantic, everything Emma writes has a love story in there somewhere.

She lives on the west coast of England with her very Greek husband and teenage kiddos. Apart from all things geek reading is her main hobby and she likes nothing better than getting home from a hard day at work and curling up with a book, though sometimes she gets home and writes one instead.
