Publisher's Summary

Banished by bad decisions to spend the summer with his great-grandmother, Liam Peters thinks his life is over. After all, Marty Peters is a tough woman to be around. Maybe she wouldn't be so bad if she'd just take an interest in the modern technology he loves. Sure, she has some insight to her...but the woman is practically "pushing daisies". Not surprisingly, as tornado sirens announce a city-wide emergency, Liam discovers why that term should be avoided...well...like the plague.
When Grandma Marty tries to send him on his way, refusing to abandon her home, Liam sees his situation in a new light. Something deep inside awakens - and he chafes at the thought of leaving his 104-year-old grandmother to die. Armed with two tiny pistols and an arsenal of knowledge from his overwhelming zombie book collection, Liam realizes he could be the hero and accomplish the impossible: rescue her.
With the interstate gridlocked, opportunist criminals looking to take what they can get, law enforcement desperate to keep the peace, and the military declaring St. Louis a war-zone, Liam and Marty find themselves wrapped up in a world of chaos and panic. But when the zombies begin to overshadow everything else, Liam comes to appreciate why there are no atheists in foxholes.
Since the Sirens is the gripping first installment of E. E. Isherwood's hit post-apocalyptic series Sirens of the Zombie Apocalypse. If you like to watch society collapse, zombie hordes bear down on the heroes, and skin-of-teeth escapes, you won't be able to pause this awesome story!

Sterile Zombie Apocalypse

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story seems a bit antiseptic for a zombie apocalypse. It was missing something gritty and messy. Things were described as being tough, but it somehow seemed removed from the reality of what was going on in the story.


Any additional comments?

The story line is a bit hard to believe in that an old woman survives the onset of a zombie infestation. The characters are a bit bumbling and often make poor choices in the face of dire situations. Generally the story is well researched and written, but there seems to be viewed through a bit of sterile gauze. The author promises as many as 10 books in the series. I am not sure that my attention would be sustained or that I care enough about the characters to follow them this far.

Zombie Apocalypse with a spiritual twist.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Young Adult, Apocalyptic with some mild romance, mild religious references, coming of age.

PROFANITY AND SEX: None. This book is appropriate for all ages. It is tasteful, I would be happy to see my teenage and preteen children reading or listening to this book.

STORY LINE: Unique Zombie Apocalypse book. This one has a spiritual spin to it. A young man, who is struggling with his relationship with his parents (sounds like all teenagers), who is stuck in his own world gets stuck with his grandmother for the summer. He quickly grows up realizing that he cannot abandon his granny, but needs to help her to safety. Yet who is saving who? The grandmother or the grandson.

NARRATOR: Loved the narration, really brought the story to life. Excellent job.

OVERALL: I loved this book. It was a terrific read. I was hoping that my son would read it before I posted a review, but alas you can only get my point of view.
