This bites.

It’s the morning after the night of the return of the living dead – or something like that. After running/bus-driving/snowboarding for her life alongside rebel Smitty, geeky Pete, and popular Alice, Bobby thought she’d found the antidote to the juice that had turned the rest of their class into zombies. When Smitty got (nom, nom) chomped, Bobby pumped a syringe of it into him herself.

But now Bobby’s a prisoner in some hospital of horrors, with no clue how she got there. And Smitty is missing. What if he isn’t cured after all? Bobby’s got to find him, even if it means facing Scotland’s hungry hordes – plus Alice’s buckets of snark – again. And this time, zombies aren’t the only evil stressing her out. The brain-dead are bad enough, but how can Bobby stop the big pharma business behind the epidemic? especially when her own mom works for the company?

Girls, guns or zombies? Girls, guns and zombies!

My thoughts… Unfed is every bit as wildly fun, funny and fast-paced as Undead, but even more so! It’s gorier, twistier, and snarkier. The action is more ambitious as our intrepid survivors make their way to Edinburgh on a high-jacked commuter train – with zombies! Oh, and I love the cover art again!
