The Z Word (Apocalypse Babes) by Bella Street

Book Blurb:
The Z Word follows Seffy Carter and her longtime friends Gareth, Addison and Lani. The four besties share a past dysfunctional and dark enough to keep them bound together under do-over identities. But rends develop in their relationships from the flesh-eating pressures of ending up in 1980, in a Montana desert, surrounded by zombies wearing dated disco duds.

My review:
This is basically Zombie light. It is a lovely diversionary bit of Zombie fun. Nothing too gruesome. Nothing too scary. Seffy and friends somehow seem to have traveled back in time to 1980 Montana, but it is a very different Montana than you might expect. For one thing, there are Zombies and lots of 'em. Zombies who seem to like disco music.

Seffy is vain, shallow, self-centered, immature and in love with her best friend, though he doesn't seem to be in love with her. She doesn't seem to have a lot of redeeming qualities, but I seemed to like her anyway.

If you are looking for a book that will make you feel intelligent, pass this one by. But if you looking for some light entertainment give it a try. I will warn you that this is the first book in a series of six. Because of that the ending is not as satisfying as you might hope for, but it wasn't too horrible for me either.

As of the time of this posting you can pick it up for free here, but be sure to check the price before you hit "buy". It could change. Or you can pick up all six books in the series for just $4.99. I've only read book one but that is a bargain for sure!

About the author:
Living so close to Nashville has provoked Bella to take up fiddle lessons. Until her tunes no longer sound like amorous alley cats, she writes romance with a touch of weird. You can find more information about Bella Street at her website.
