Julie Rayzor Free through Halloween.

The first Zombie book in my series is Free Wednesday and Thursday for Halloween ( Free book: )
Jeff Dawson rated it 4 of 5 stars
The saga continues... This is the second in the Julie Rayzor series. This book picks right up where #1 finished. Julie is torn between staying in Tulsa, assisting her commander, Colonel Winters or calling it quits. Jill, Julie’s long time friend, has had enough. She wants to run off and hide where the Zomb won’t find her. Good luck there. Winters resolves the issue by sending Julie, Jill, Gary, Jim and two soldiers on a fact finding mission to Spiro. He believes there is a group there where Julie and Jill can feel safe and rebuild their shattered lives. He conceals his real reason for sending them on the mission.

What makes this a great book is the drama and storyline Richard creates. It isn’t all slash and gore. There is a bigger picture to the characters. They are well defined and easily connected with.
The caveat I enjoyed the most is how, despite this being a modern day end of the world work, it has a great flair of a Western Romance. It is very apparent the author is well versed and schooled in riding horses. With gasoline in short supply, equestrian travel is the primary mode of transportation.

The only slight I have, is the ending. Up to this point, the action is well described and exciting: the battle of Spiro, Julie’s perilous escape and the birthing of twins—not going into this, but it isn’t for the faint of heart. All three were well crafted scenes.

Overall, an entertaining read.

RayzorWire - The Julie Rayzor Zombie Was sequel is out in Time for Halloween!!!

The first review for the zombie sequel!!! five stars! Warning : spoilers! RayzorWire: Julie Rayzor Zombie War Book Two (Julie Rayzor Zombie War Series) (Volume 2) 

This well written book is packed with action, adventure, Zombies, and more. I never read a Zombie novel before, so I learned a lot about Zombies. I didn't know there were also Zombie horses! Being a former military wife, I could relate to the parts of the book that talked about Humvees, helicopters, and MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat). This book includes some steamy romantic scenes including two jealous women smitten with the same man. One of the women settles for another man who ends up being killed in a Zombie battle. The author is very talented at using words to describe the scenes and painting a picture for the reader. An example is one of the most gruesome scenes with dead, decaying bodies left in cars. After being attacked by Zombies and losing several of their people, there was an upbeat moment in the story when the twins were born. The happiness was short-lived, however, after one of the twins and the mother died. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves action, adventure, drama, romance, and Zombies!
