My Review of Deadborn by CM Stunich

Kindle ][ Kindle uk ][ GoodReads

This was one of the scariest, strangest, most twisted zombie apocalypse books I have ever read. It gripped me from the start and I was honestly surprised to find the main character was a male and not a female. Galen comes off as really a no self esteem whiner throughout most of the book, but he eventually finds his back bone. Holly however is kick ass. If ever there was a zombie apocalypse I'd absolutely want her on my side.
The story is very fast paced and once it gets its claws into the reader, it will not allow itself to be closed until its story its told. As I write this it's almost five in the morning that's how good the story is.
However, there are several errors that were more than likely "lost in the moment" encountered. A few of them forced me to read a sentence more than once to figure out exactly what was being portrayed.
However good the story is, because of the amount of errors I found, which really shocked me since I found no errors in First, I can not honestly give this book the 5 paws the story itself deserves.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws

My Review of Sabaska's Tale (Tales of the Travelers 1) by J.A. Campbell

Kindle ][ Kindle uk ][ GoodReads

*I was given this Reviewer Copy by the author via Lady Amber's Tours in exchange for an honest review*

This is a wonderful story, and honestly even with the rare occasion of a swear word here and there (there's at least one f bomb in the entire book and couple of sh*t's. Really three maybe four swears in the whole book) I'd let my children read it. The story is an amazing tale of friendship, love, loss, and trust between human and horse.
Sabaska is such a spirited little mare you cheer for her through everything . I have no doubt that the Sabaska in this book is a perfect reflection of the horse she was created after, world hopping and all lol. I imagine this was a tough story to tell with the main equine being based off a beloved friend that is no longer with us. I do hope this tale brought the author some measure of closure to her loss.
This story is very well written I spotted only one error in the entire work.
I only had one small problem with the storyline. The reader not only grows close to Sabaska and Anna but to Amir as well, and Amir is virtually forgotten about halfway through the story.
I hope that at least some point in the series Amir will show up again he was a smart horse and I have a feeling his story isn't finished yet.
Despite the three or four instances with swear words, this is story any horse lover of any age will love and appreciate. Even some that aren't too fond of horses may look our equine counter parts in a different light after reading Sabaska's Tale.
Ms. Campbell you did your companion justice with this story...and I look forward to seeing what other trouble Sabaska gets into with Anna and Cahir.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
