Samantha's Monday Reviews

Fifth book in the Zombie Overload Series.

Canada, Nick, and Vicki escape and are on the run. All she wants to do is get back to her family, but if it isn't a zombie trying to kill her, it's one of the living. Some answers will be revealed, more zombies will attack, and the journey won't get any easier.

Canada, Vicki and Nick got away from Jake and Paul but every time they turn around they are there. After being on the run for month, getting the flu among other things Canada makes the decision she is going back to her family. So as they head there they run into another group of survivors and they can't just leave them so they end up adding more to their small group. A group who when Canada falls off the truck while trying to take care of Zombies they leave her. Nick comes back to find her and they run into a bunch of problems but finally make it to where they need to go. However Vicki and the group are not there. So now they have to go and find her as neither Nick or Canada can leave her.

My Opinion: And yet again CM gives us another Amazing action packed book in the zombie overload series. She is nicknamed the zombie queen and that's no lie. I have read a few zombies series and lord knows I love my zombie movies and this series is by far one of my favorites. I would definitely love to see this as a movie or tv series.. Canada has taken her blows and got knocked down but she picked herself back up and is just as bad as ever! And wow the changes in Will! I definitely recommend reading. However you cannot start at this book. It is not a stand alone. You have to start from book 1.



This is the second book in the mini-series, Zombie 101.

Find out how the Zombie Apocalypse started for Sandro and Libby, and how it quickly went from bad to worse.

This is the second book in the Zombie 101 mini series. In this one we see what Sandro and Libby went through. This a great short read. Very insightful. I could not put it down and left me in anticipation of what comes next.
You need to read this book before you read book 6 in the Zombie Overload Series as they are connected.
I highly recommend reading!


This sixth book in the Zombie Overload Series finds the members of Rose's Refuge still fighting to survive, still hanging on, and doing their best to make something out of their new lives.

Canada is wondering who she is, where she fits in, and her confidence has taken a huge hit. Maybe it's time to take a step back, let someone else be in control for once. Can she do that? Can she live with herself, when she really isn't being herself?

I absolutely LOVED it! This one starts with Canada and crew discussing going in search of medical supplies and going to find Vicki and the rest of those that are lost. While on their search they find more than they expect to when they do find those that are missing which leads them a new and dangerous mission. Not only do they have zombies to deal with but the worst kind of humans you could imagine.
This is book 6 in the series and cannot be read as a stand alone. Before this one you must also read the two Zombie Crash Course books. This is a must. You will see why when you read.
I definitely recommend reading!

Wife and mother who recently moved from Decatur, IL to just outside Skidmore, Mo. I love all things zombie and am a faithful Walking Dead follower. Love me some Daryl!
I like to laugh and make others laugh, so I do my best to bring that to my readers…for the Zombie Overload series anyway.
Eventually, I will be writing about other creatures that go bump in the night.

Monsters generally know their place: vampires get to be sexy while zombies just decompose. But Maggie La Croix’s Zombified conjures up an entirely different kind of undead raised by good old-fashioned Voodoo. These gorgeous walking corpses don’t eat brain, they don’t stagger, and their bodies are spared the indignities of putrefaction.

Take Henri Jolicoeur. More than one hundred years after his death he is still a bewitching Adonis. But zombification does have its downsides. Henri has a master, a powerful Voodoo priest whose spells keep Henri, his teenage zombie sister, and five other poor souls in perpetual servitude.

That is, until a hurricane devastates their New Orleans home and the zombies are evacuated to the Texas border town of El Paso. The curse is broken. They are free and intend to stay that way. But how can they pass for human when they don’t eat or sleep and they’re reeling from black magic withdrawal? If that isn’t enough, they have a traitor in their midst, their master is hot on their trail, and a mysterious stranger in black is watching.

Enter Josie Cortez, a cowboy boots-wearing reporter at the local newspaper who desperately needs a good story to save her moribund career and get her editor off her back. One look at Henri and his weird little family and she knows she’s struck journalism gold. But strange things keep happening around Henri, things that remind Josie of her own tragic family history with black magic, a history that cost her her beloved mother and led Josie straight to the bottom of a bottle. Josie would rather forget all about that. Forgetting Henri, however, is easier said than done, even if falling for a man without a heartbeat could get her more than a broken heart. It could get her zombified.

'I was given a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review'
Henri Jolicoeur has been dead for over a hundred years. He along with his teenage sister and five other people were turned into Zombies by a Voodoo priest and have no choice but to obey his every demand. But when a hurricane comes to New Orleans the curse is broken and the Zombies get evacuated to El Paso where Henri meets Josie. Josie is fascinated with Henri and there is something about him that she just can't stay away from. No matter  how much he tries to resist he becomes close with Josie and dreads what my happen to her when the Voodoo priest finds them.
This is a new author to me and I will definitely look forward to what she may come up with next. I think that this was a great book and very well written. The author took zombies in a different direction and in my opinion it paid off.
I definitely recommend reading.

When she first embarked in fiction writing, Maggie thought, Piece of cake. After all, she’d been a newspaper reporter for ten years; writing was her daily bread. But Zombified, her first novel about a band of sexy zombies, was anything but easy. The story wasn’t conveniently laid out for her at a press conference; it had to be coaxed out of her own imagination. Plot points resisted solving, descriptions meandered, and characters misbehaved. But just when things seemed bleakest, it happened. Maggie fell in love with it all: the zombies, the love story
, and even the rituals of writing.

Maggie likes her leading women flawed and her science fiction sexy. She went to school for journalism and political science. She lives in the United States.
