Publisher's Summary

Something dark has been brewing in the small town of Minot, North Dakota.
Something waiting for the perfect storm to free it from its shackles.
Something that only comes out when it rains.
After a night of camping turns deadly for Rory and his friends, the town sheriff finds no trace of wrongdoing. No bodies. No blood. No nada. Sheriff Hooper scoffs at their story about the dead people who came out of the lake. The moss-covered ones that allegedly dragged their friends, kicking and screaming, back into the water with them. It doesn't take long for the dwindling group of survivors to uncover who is responsible for the uprising, and what follows is a tidal wave of bloodshed and horror that will leave the listener afraid to go near the water, let alone leave the house when it rains.

Surprisingly good!!

I've read some pretty mixed reviews regarding this, so didn't really expect much from it when I started, but I'm so happy to say that I really really enjoyed it.

The plot plodded along nicely. It wasn't extremely fast paced but had a steady pace the whole way through. It centered on a lake in Minot, North Dakota. A funeral parlour decided that they would start dumping bodies into the lake instead of burying them in their fine caskets! Add in a toxic spill and some lightening to hit the lake and, bam, you have you Zombies! I have to say that it was definitely a unique way for the Zombie virus to begin but in a way, I really liked this idea!! Plus after being in the lake a long time, some of the Zombies were grotesque and bloated. *Shudder* Also because the were "born" in the lake, the Zombies can't stray far from water because they can't function without it, so attacks only happen in or around the water, but when a group of friends go camping and partying near the lake, the Zombies attack. The group dwindle down to 3, who make their way for help, only to have the police think they are crazy. They go to the lake but only find the remnants of the party of the night before. While at the lake though, it starts to rain!! Not just rain, but pour! A storm is here, and along with it, the Zombies can rise!!! Who will survive the Floodwater??

As I said, I really loved the idea of how the Zombies came to be and how they can only move if there's water!! Definitely unique in a saturated genre. The characters meanwhile were all well written and developed. From the weird ass mortuary assistant (dude, he was weird with a capital W!!) to the childhood boyfriend/girlfriend reunited! Seriously, this author created a very colourful cast of characters!!!!

In all, this was a surprisingly good Zombie book. It kept my attention throughout and made me want to check out more from this author. I would definitely love to see a second book in this series!

This isn't the first book I've listened to that has been narrated by J. Scott Bennett, nor will it be my last. He has a pleasant and easy to listen to voice and reads a story well. He has a range of tones and voices and always delivers!

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
