    1. Zombies are not high on my list of things I want to read about but this was for a challenge so read it anyway.It turned out to be a pretty good book too There were lots of Zombies hordes of them as it says in the title and although they were killing every human in sight of course our trio of teenagers traveled a very long way without a bite, armed only with a sword The ending was good as it tied up loose ends from this book and set it up big time for the next As I am not a zombie fan I will prob [...]


    2. Oh my god its Zombilicious First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy and secondly OH MY GODis was fantasticWell as the name suggests this is totally a zombie apocalypse book but if you think that this book is going to be all about zombie and running from them, then you are wrong because while zombie are running in the background craving for brains,the story line has much to offer and have so many other twists and turns that keeps it spicy and completely going [...]


    3. Zombie Attack pulls off the rare feat, in the zombie genre, of delivering both finely drawn characters and truly unpredictable plot turns Unlike most books in the zombie genre and I ve read a lot the characters in Zombie Attack aren t two dimensional cartoon figures who are tossed into the narrative merely to serve as zombie lunch Rather, they re flesh and blood humans whose complex inner lives drive their actions to their inexorable, bloody ends.Yes, these s stomach churning blood splatter galo [...]


    4. 16 year old Xander is left at Vandenberg Airforce Base by his older brother Moto, who tells him not to leave but that was before the horde of zombies attacked Xander manages to escape, fleeing south to Port Hueneme to locate his brother with nothing but his martial arts training and the katana blade left to him Along the way he meets up with others as they struggle to survive This is a great Zombie story that is rich in characters and plot A Zombie story without the bad language, sex, and sensel [...]

    6. Whoa This book is a super exciting fast paced trip I enjoyed it greatly From page one you know what we are getting into The author instantly tells the reader Hey listen, this is a zombie book and this is the kind of zombies we have in these pages What kind of zombies are they Uhh the awesome kind duh We all know that the teeny bopper zombie love intrest novel no longer hold any interest for me I want my zombies scary as hell The zombies in this book can be scary as hell To be honest though the p [...]


    7. Zombie Attack Rise of the Horde is everything the blurb promises it to be, and much, much When the current world order collapses into chaos under the shuffling feet of flesh eating zombies, and law and order can no longer be maintained those who thrive in a lawless world get together to create even chaos Gangsters and those who oppose them, Neo Nazi s and cannibals, are just some of the dangers Xander, Benji and Felicity have to face on their journey to the safe zone at Port Hueneme Along the [...]


    8. This book, Zombie Attack Rise of the Horde, takes you on a non stop ride with Xander, a 16 yr old searching for his brother, Moto, while battling zombies and gaining friends along the way You see it all from Xander s point of view and the details are all there The relationships are believable, the battles seem real, the surprises do not disappoint There is simply no let down as the action continues to build throughout the book I know this book was written for teenagers or young adults but as an [...]


    9. I am a bit torn between two and three stars here, I keep reaching up and changing the rating Let me type up why I feel this way, then I ll see what I ll do about the rating.The beginning of the book started off strong You could see the action coming and realized once the book got its pacing that there would not be much standing around In the pro column the book did a swell job of that, it was brimming with plot and kept moving When I started the book I was convinced it was going to be fantastic, [...]


    10. With a title like this and a cover like this book has you would expect an ordinary, everyday zombie story for the YA crowd The zombies have wiped out most of humanity a small band of survivors battles to the uncertain finish You would be right about the fact that this book does not stray far from the storyline we ve become accustomed to from many othe zombie stories That s where the similarity ends.Friends, author Devan Sagliani can write This book is populated with some characters I really grow [...]


    11. Xander was to wait for his brother Moto to return for him when zombies attack Now Xander has to fend for himself against gangs, cannibals, religious zealots, and on his quest to find his brother Along the way he meets a young boy and an on screen idol, Felicity Their journey may no longer be a lonely one, but it is no less dangerous To be fair, I m not necessarily a fan of a lot of teen reads The book flowed at a decent pace, but I didn t connect with the characters I understood their motivatio [...]


    12. Sagliani smashes it again Zombie Attack Rise of the Horde was top quality YA horror, with easily relatable characters you will find yourself caring about very quickly The standard apocalyptic setting for a zombie novel was enhanced by Sagliani s world building skills The different attitudes towards the zombie threat by the groups of people he has created made for a page turning read One group leader in particular made it seem there might be worse things than zombie hordes for the main characters [...]


    13. This book is very entertaining with lots of action from both zombies, baddies, religious cults and cannibals the main characters are a 16 year old boy a 16 year old TV celebrity and a 12 year old comic nerd They get them selves I All kinds of trouble on there way to find xanders brother at a military base I love the way the characters react to situations in childish adolescent manor and usually make there predicaments worse by childish behaviour Great book for young adults and above 5 highly rec [...]


    14. OH MY DOUBLE M G This was the best zombie book I ve ever read Move over Hunger Games, I think this is gonna be the next big thing The writing was excellent It was very appropriate for the teenage audience it is geared toward It was nice to read a zombie book without the bad language, sex, and senseless gore This was a zombie book with class, and one parents will easily approve The characters were rich and the action was nonstop I never knew what was coming next an edge of your seat read that lef [...]


    15. A smash bang post apocalypse zombie nightmare romp The story follows teen Xander and the various kids he encounters and some he feels responsible for on a journey of necessity and survival It has lots of mythical type characters brought down to earth and set in Xander s way The situations the group encounters are one after another obstacles and rites of passage through a world of walking dead There s lots of action, violence and heart to keep even a reluctant reader turning the pages I really en [...]


    16. I have a hard time being entertained by many contemporary books, but this was not the case with Zombie Attack I was hooked from page one and I couldn t put it down I thought this book was so well written and the author can really develop a character I was never bored and there were times that my eyes were watery from reading too much I highly recommend this read It s a great young adult book Can t wait for the next book in the series.


    17. Incredibly entertaining, fast paced read I literally read this in three sittings Excellent storytelling and well drawn, relatable characters whom you can t help but care about Loved me some Xander Looking forward to


    18. Fun, creepy, engaging and captivating zombie tale with substance and well developed characters enjoyed it very much a great undead fix for zombie junkies and dystopian landscapes


    19. Such a great book Devan can not wait to read the next one sorry it took me so long to finish but i wasn t in the mood to read when i was laid up from surgery and on pain killers.


    20. Originally posted on Reader s AnonymousZombie Attack Rise of the Horde Zombie wasn t a contemporary classic, it s not written so eloquently that my heart couldn t take it, nor was it some horror filled masterpiece, but it was fun It was similar to the zombie movies and television shows I ve seen with the whole people are the true monster s not flesh eating parasites, which I actually happen to enjoy.I know what you re thinking What possibly possessed me to read a novel with that title, well I ll [...]


    21. Zombie Attack Rise of the Horde follows the story of a teenager named Xander and his companion Benji as they tried to find a new safe zone after their last one has been overrun by Zombies What I really liked about the story were the characters Benji was my favorite because he thought logically and seemed to just have a tighter grip on reality than Xander even though he was a couple of years younger I also really liked Felicity Jane She was like this weird cross of Cher from Clueless and Darla fr [...]


    22. Rise of the Horde definitely isn t the average zombie novel, and I liked it all the because of that Overall, the story is well described, with enjoyable dialogue and a lot of action At times, some of the characters decisions or actions seemed a bit odd given their circumstances, and there were slow points in between the highly active scenes, but neither of those stopped the novel from being a thoroughly enjoyable read.What I really loved the most about Rise of the Horde is what differentiated i [...]


    23. At first I was afraid that this would be just a copy of a classic ol zombie tale Just when I thought I knew what would happenin the story, I was blown away by the creativeness of the author I love the references to current pop culture and details of teenage life I also like the fact that the characters were mostly teens In all honesty I think the younger generation would survive better in the Zombie apocalypse, especially after reading this book Looking forward to the next horde,a big fight Xand [...]


    24. I read a lot of zombie apocalypse novels My preference leans toward of the zombie survival books rather than the ones that focus on the horror aspect of it I ve pretty much read all of the major Z.A book worth reading, so now I m looking at some of the lesser know authors books Basically I m scraping the bottom of the barrel to get my zombie fix.I should ve known by the cover of the book, not the one that s on , but the updated one that screams this is a YA novel Rise of the Horde has been on m [...]


    25. Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold and stand their ground, Zombie Attack Rise of the Horde takes us on the road Trying to get to his brothers military base, Xander picks up new comrades along the way In Sagliani s world, where zombies aren t the only monsters roaming the streets, Xander and his friends face neo Nazis, marauders, cults and other evils of a fallen society.Where all it takes is a single bite, this group of misfits suffer the loss of loved ones, childhood [...]


    26. I receive a free copy for review from the author Devan Sagliani The opinions below are my own There are spoilers so if you enjoy not knowing what will happen next, read the book and not my review.This was very well written I suspect the author is from my generation, or close enough for government work, because I caught and understood all of the references to pop culture This is somewhat of a rarity for me and always fills me with joy, like I ve been let in on an inside joke.I gave this a 3.5 bec [...]


    27. If you re looking for a laid back read, this is certainly not what you seek Rise of the Horde starts out with heart pounding, nail biting action that refuses to let up I FREAKING LOVE IT The experience of reading this book is the equivalent of watching a Jason Statham film I held my breath so often, I m surprised I didn t pass out.You all know how obsessed I am with zombies unless you re new here, in which case, WELCOME And, by the way I m a zombie loving freak Back to my point, though I ve read [...]


    28. I abandoned this book because a I got caught up in a lot of other books and b this one wasn t strong enough to hold my attention I could never get a good grasp of the main character The narrative told me a lot about him he was strong, he was a great fighter, he was a natural leader , but I never saw that at least, not the great leader part There was a surplus of boys and the first women to show up were one dimensional the mother and the beautiful betrayer I know that another girl is supposed to [...]


    29. Xander.Running, always running and protecting his friends.Benji.A little boy who watched his family being killed and loves comic books.Felicity Jane.A beautiful teen actress who becomes part of Xander s family.Let s get one thing clear I still dislike Zombie stories Xander sets one goal for himself, to reach the base where his brother Moto is stationed In the process of reaching this goal he protects Benji, who is bullied by older boys He takes Benji with him He meets a teen celebrity, Felicity [...]


    30. Zombie Attack Rise of the HordeDevan Sagliani Want to get your adolescents to read This book will catch their interest, and it will catch yours too This is a great book for any adolescent zombie enthusiast As a former middle school high schoolteacher, I know how difficult it can be to get young people to read Many books just don t hold their interest Teen readers are too old for children s books, but aren t ready for full content adult books either.Recently, great adolescent literature has emerg [...]
