Eve used to be an ordinary girl, from an ordinary town, with ordinary dreams, but her dreams rapidly turn into nightmares when one grave mistake leaves her a little less than human and a lot less average.
Eve’s not quite the same girl she used to be. She desperately clings to her humanity as new desires, new abilities, and new urges take over with each passing day.
Eve Brenner: Zombie Girl is a tale that takes you on an emotional and terrifying journey as Eve struggles to cope with her new life and find a cure for her strange illness before time runs out. She desperately clings to her humanity as she tries to control the monster she knows is lurking inside her.
Turns out living was the easy part.
I am always thrilled to have the opportunity to read a zombie book! I had never heard of this author before, so the anticipation of sinking my teeth into some fresh meat had me salivating.
Eve Brenner: Zombie Girl has a unique premise and a very creative underlying story, which is an important aspect of any book in this genre. I was really digging (pun intended) the story after first cracking it open. Eve had me super excited about her tale! I wish that feeling would have held strong throughout, but unfortunately it loses a bit of steam as it progresses. I had a difficult time connecting with/relating to Eve. Her choices irritated me, for the most part. Luckily, there is life beyond the main character in this story. The secondary characters and the action scenes are what saved this one for me. While there are parts of the book that made me roll my eyes and want to punch the wall, there was enough meat on these bones to keep me chewing.
This may not be a 5-star book, and I can’t deny that I was a little disappointed by that realization, but it’s certainly a good debut novel. I didn’t fall in love with it, but I liked it enough that I will probably read the next book in the series. Keep writing, Ms. Giacomi!
