About the Zombie West Omnibus

Zombie West Omnibus Angela Scott
 


The Wild West is hard enough to survive with its native territory, wanted outlaws, and harsh terrain, but with a plague turning civilized people into brain-eating monsters, survival becomes nearly impossible.

Red has lost everything to the fast-spreading disease: her family, her trust in mankind, and her hope for a better tomorrow. When she meets Trace, a smooth-talking gambling man who’s more city boy than cowboy, she’s forced down a path she’d been avoiding for years. Until his arrival, she’d lived by a certain set of rules—don’t ask names, keep to yourself, don’t let anyone too close—but the jackass of a man won’t let her be, and he has an uncanny knack for appearing at all the wrong times and in all the wrong places.

Each, with a secret of their own, will need to learn that only by working together do they have any chance of surviving The Zombie West.

That is, if they don’t kill each other first.

REVIEW


I was extremely intrigued by this trilogy…The Wild West and Zombies??…hmmm, a combination that was sure to keep me entertained for hours, and it certainly did just that.

 

But this series was not only about the undead. It was more a story of courage and sacrifice, as an unlikely mix of people band together to survive against all the elements; natural and supernatural. At times the pacing was a little slow and I would have liked to see more action and interaction with the Zombies, but this book was still exciting enough, with quite a few surprise plot twists, that I was enthralled from start to finish. Red’s story was most peculiar. The minute she walked into Trace’s life I was drawn to her and I had to know more about her. Why was she “Wanted”? Why was she travelling alone? And what in her past had made her such a fierce, feisty character, one who didn’t trust very easily? As the story progressed, so the many questions surrounding her increased; she was an enigma.

 

This book was filled with adventure, action, tragedy and heartache, but it also held a lot of hope, courage and uncharacteristic romance. I loved being sucked into a different time and place, and getting to meet strange but interesting people. This was a great read that will be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers.



 

About Angela Scott


Angela ScottAngela Scott hears voices. Tiny fictional people sit on her shoulders and whisper their stories in her ear. Instead of medicating herself, she decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. She’s not crazy. She’s an author. For the most part, she writes contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, she found herself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West–and loving it. Her zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, she wouldn’t suggest it. She lives on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. She graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of her love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. She can’t spell, and grammar is her arch nemesis. But they gave her the degree, and there are no take backs.
