    One Reply to “Life After the Undead”

    1. Life After The Undead is surprisingly the very first zombie novel I've ever read and this is certainly not going to be the last time! It wasn't really my intention to avoid reading zombie novels. I just never had the chance to read one sooner because, well I know this is embarrassing, but I thought, watching about them is more interactive and believable. You know like TWD, Dawn of the Dead etc. yeah well, I totLLY underestimated my imagination.Life After The Undead was such a fast-paced and acti [...]

    2. I bonded with Krista quickly because of her curiosity, the need to know why the zombies do what they do and we head to Florida, traveling through the grisly horror with the excellent writing and storyline, including a laugh or two along the way.

    3. You can find this full review and many others at Scifi and Scary's Book Reviews.I had initially given this book a 4 star star rating when I did my mini “this is what I rated it, and this is when a review will be up.” but then today when I sat down to write the review, I realized it was so non-outstanding in reality that I had to really wrack my brain just to recall specific details of it… and I had just read it yesterday. So, with that being said, it obviously wasn’t that great of a book [...]

    4. "I didn’t really expect too much out of this book. I was wrong. I got a hell of a lot from it. Without trying to give too much away, it ends with a possibility of more. I sincerely hope there is, Pembroke Sinclair!"See here for the full review:Life After the Undead

    5. A great page turning book that captivated my attention since the very beginning. Intriguing and well written. Great characters.Hope the end was left open on purpose a sequel, maybe?

    6. Please Note: I was given an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinions of this book.The book, Life After The Undead is all about conflict: Zombies vs. people, people vs. people, The main character, Krista vs. her cousin, the controlling Liet. There was a constant tension throughout the book as you didn't know when the zombies (or Liet) would strike. I was conflicted as well. I really did like this book. But I also had some strong feelings about Kr [...]

    7. I was provided with a copy of Life after the Undead in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed reading this immensely. This book begins with a girl named Krista who has just experienced the zombocalypse in Oregon. She hurries home and finds her parents there, but her mother thinks that her husband and daughter are playing a cruel joke on her. After watching the undead literally chew the arm off a woman outside of their window, they must get to a safe place quickly. Once they begin to venture ou [...]

    8. When I first started reading this book, I was a little taken back. I have seen quite a few, if not all, of the zombie movies and am a HUGE fan of "The Walking Dead". That being said, it was really, really weird to read about zombies vs. watching them. The stories progressed fairly quickly. I like that in a book as I don't always have time to sit and read a huge novel. But, trust me when I say, that the shortness of the books does not take away from the awesomeness.I love the story of the world e [...]

    9. Krista is waiting for the school bus when things go terribly wrong. She hurries home and convinces her parents that something horrible is happening and that they have to do something. When the horde of zombies are shuffling down the streets Krista and her parents hide in the attic. They know that it's not safe to stay in their house for much longer. They decide to go to a military outpost and hope that they'll find sanctuary within their walls. When a lot of people have the same idea the check-i [...]

    10. READ REVIEWS AT BITE SOME BOOKSI was glad I had Life After The Undeadas my first zombie novel ever. It has everything I could ever ask for in a novel featuring my favorite creatures in fictional worlds. It has a badass heroine. Like, really badass. Krista isn't easily intimidated, she stands up for herself, and I found myself liking her more and more each page. She's also smart and knows how to do her thing. My favorite line from her is exactly the same thing I would think of if I were in her sh [...]

    11. I’ve become fascinated by zombies and apocalyptic stories. I love The Walking Dead and the show has helped me to visualize lots of scenes. From funny to gruesome. .The author yanks you right into the apocalypse. Barely time to breath before they are everywhere. .While I love the zombies, what really grabbed me in this story was the group dynamics. Ever seen the movie The Postman with Kevin Costner?.Similar to the movie, you have opposite sides on the apocalypse. Those who want to help others a [...]

    12. Krista is a bit of an outsider when it comes to the average, modern teenager. She’s not part of the “in-crowd”, but really, who is? I found her character to be highly logical, even for a teen. When the end of the world blows up in everyone’s face and Krista is faced with a few harsh realities and her logical side proves to be a bigger asset to survival than she realizes.As humans do, when the world goes crazy, they wanted to create order. They did that in a few different ways. There was [...]

    13. Krista is waiting for the school bus one morning, when she witnesses one of her fellow students being savagely attacked by other students who are acting somewhat strangely. Here begins the "zompocalypse" from Krista's point of view. Her father goes to investigate and when he doesn't return, her mother goes looking for him and Krista finds herself alone. She comes across a group who agrees to take her on board once assured that she is not infected! They end up in a community run by five families [...]

    14. Why can't we rate more than 5 stars?! Oh my gosh this book was so awesome!! To be perfectly honest, my TBR list was pretty long and I wanted to save this book for closer to the bottom because I always try to save the best for last. But eventually I just HAD to have a peek. So I told myself "I'll just read the first page" about 10 chapters later, I knew I couldn't quite. Mrs. Pembroke is such a hella talented author! I've read a few of her other books and she has this amazing way of capturing th [...]

    15. Krista is waiting for the school bus when she first notices something strange is going on. Why are people suddenly attacking each other? She soon discovers that this is the beginning of the end. The end of the world as we know it. With everything destroyed and the loss of her family, Krista must forge out on her own in order to survive. First, she heads out to Florida with a group of survivors who have somehow managed to escape the madness. Something is missing though. Why doesn't anyone want to [...]

    16. This was a zombie book that wasn’t all about the zombies. This book has so many other elements and I’ll be the first to say it was refreshing. Zombie books are not usually my thing. I have a deep rooted fear of Zombies and reading about them is about as far as I go. I have watched a few movies on the subject but not many. They give me terrible nightmares. Even though I am frightened by zombies, the idea of their existence intrigues me.There are far more elements to deal with in the aftermath [...]

    17. Life after the undead by Pembroke Sinclair.Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.A really enjoyable read. Krista was my favourite character. Can't wait for n [...]

    18. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I really loved this book. This is the first zombie book that I have read and I have to say that I enjoyed the read. "Life After the Undead" is a YA book that took me by surprise. My son loves "The Walking Dead" and I am not a particular fan so I did not know what to expect. "Life After the Undead" starts off with 17-year-old Krista noticing things are a little hokey in her neighborhood while at the bus stop and runs home to t [...]

    19. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The book was great! Pembroke Sinclair does not leave the reader disappointed, and there are no slow points in the narrative. The book centers around Krista, a 17 year old girl who is trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. The story starts out in Oregon with the outbreak, then she travels to Orlando, Florida looking for refuge. What she finds is far more than what she bargained for. Her parents are dead by now, and Krista runs [...]

    20. This YA Zombie book is a fantastic read. It reminds me a little of a less violent/gory "The Walking Dead" because it is more about people coping with loss and trying to work together. There is a tyrant who begins to rule the people with fear. Krista, the female protagonist is a 17 year old who falls for an 18 year old sweetheart, who still believes in treating people like people. It does have a bit of a cliffhanger ending, so I will be watching for the next book in this series.

    21. I received this free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Finally! A YA zombie horror novel that shines. Loved it and thought it was awesome from start to finish. Krista has to grow up fast and learn to take care of herself in a world where zombies are running rampant and the humans aren't much better. This had me on the edge of my seat and I immediately bought the next book in the series. I'm very picky about my zombie novels but this was dead on.

    22. This was a really great zombie story. The characters were relatable and it had plenty of action to keep it riveting and suspenseful. I am really glad there is a second book so I can see where the storyline goes. If you like zombie stories, pick this one up and you'll be hooked too.

    23. This book was entered and was a Bronze Medal Winner in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards.

    24. Genuinely found this generic and boring. The writing style isn't horrendous, but it's nothing special either. The world building adds nothing new to the whole zombie apocalypse momentum and in fact doesn't even fill holes within it's own world; you definitely turn by being bitten, so whatever it is can be passed through saliva and blood. However, you are not concerned at all about being covered in zombie gore? Minor issue there.On top of this, I found just about everything about the world buildi [...]

    25. Disclaimer: Pembroke Sinclair is published by the Forsaken imprint of Booktrope, the same publisher which released my debut novella, No Rest for the Wicked.Life After the Undead is a bit of an anomaly, because it subverts the zombie genre in ways that I didn’t expect. Sinclair has also penned a non-fiction book under her real name, Jessica Robinson, called Undead Obsessed: Finding Meaning in Zombies, and so you can be sure that she’s already done her homework. But what’s most notable to me [...]

    26. Imagine one day going to school and see people bitting others, imagine going home and everyone around you is suddenly acting weird and attacking each other. This is what happened to Krista, one day zombies became real and now she is learning to survive in this new reality.I like the dynamic and rhythm of this book, it all starts quite fast and the first chapters are full of action and a sense of adrenaline. Krista is hit by this new situation and her first instinct is to survive. Two years later [...]

    27. Krista is angry at her parents for dying at the outset of a zombie apocalypse. Yes, I know, that ought to be a spoiler, but it isn't, because there is a "prologue" that spoils it anyway. Ignoring the pointless prologue, the writing is disappointing, the situations unrealistic, and I had a number of unanswered or unaddressed logistical questions remaining by the end. I did finish it. There were some redeeming qualities. Krista is an annoying young adult, and maybe she learns her skills too quickl [...]

    28. Decent end-of-the world tale, nominally zombies though they feel almost incidental. Decent characters, and some interesting plot lines that explore how humanity might indeed react to an apocalyptic scenario, while avoiding some of the common cliches. Enjoyable.

    29. I enjoyed the story but it dragged in places. Also be prepared for the abrupt ending. if you enjoy the ins and outs of rebuilding a civilization after an apocalypse this is the book for you .

    30. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellIf you asked me a few years ago, I would have said I absolutely hated zombies. I wouldn’t read anything about them nor watch anything about them. In truth, they freaked me out a bit. Most likely because to me, it seems as if the idea of a “zombie” is more plausible than any other type of supernatural or paranormal creature. I mention this, because it’s my past views on such events as a zombie apocalypse that really helps me to initially c [...]
