Publisher's Summary

Emma's Rose: A Zombie Tale - Book 1: The Cave
In an ancient cave in Romania....
Wealthy philanthropist Arthur Wells, in need of a family getaway with his wife, Joan, and his daughter, Emma, arranges a trip to Romania. His intention is to explore an ancient cave system he read about, located in Constanta, on the Black Sea coast.
The name of the cave, unearthed in 1986, is Pestera Movile. It has been sealed from the light of day for over five-and-a-half million years, preserved beneath more than 20 meters of clay. Yet, despite the toxic environment and the lack of light and oxygen within, life forms thrive - all of them blind and colorless. Many are carnivorous. Most are found nowhere else on Earth.
In this harsh, chemosynthetic environment, Arthur stumbles across something he hopes will advance medical science. Unbeknownst to his guide, he takes a sample of the strange flower.
Arthur Wells has no way of knowing what Emma's Rose is about to unleash upon the world.

Emma's Rose: The Cave review

The title on this book threw me off - for quite a while in fact. It was continually popping up in my Amazon book suggestions, and while I am a huge fan of anything I have ever read by Mr. Shelman - this one just gave me a "meh" feeling. The cover art, the title about a ROSE?

Ok, so here's where I'm going to start my review. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID !! Don't pass it by because there's a flower on the cover - look closely at the creepy albino bug with nasty little pincers, circling itself in the middle where the yellow dust is sitting......

Recently, I made up a saying that sums up my mistake . "Don't judge a book by its cover". heheh ok, maybe I can't take credit for that, but it fits perfectly in my case :)

This is, without a shadow of a doubt, a zombie book. A really good zombie book!
The cause for the outbreak is unique. The cast of characters are flawed, funny, endearing. The zombies have a different twist to the same old stumblers. And the ending leaves room for continuing the story, without and major cliffhanger (I didn't say "no cliffhanger " just nothing major lol)

The narrating by Mr. Shelman is spot on as usual. I really like that he reads his own books - the characters come to life in the way they were meant to.
