Burn the Dead: Purge Review (Zombie Horror)

Burn the Dead PurgeBurn the Dead: Purge Synopsis

There are those who run, while others hide.

And then, there are the Cleaners.

The living dead have staggered straight out of hell, and all that keeps humanity from crumbling is a small team of men who catch the rotters, before cleaning up the mess left behind.

Catherine Woods might not be a man, but no sexist, out-dated nonsense is going to stop her from following her dreams and joining the war against the undead.

The only problem is—even the best dreams can become nightmares in an instant. – Goodreads


Burn the Dead: Purge Review


With this third book I’ve read from him, 2nd in The Zombie Saga (see my review of book 1 here), Jenkins solidifies his reputation as a solid horror writer than can be depended on to spin a good yarn. I enjoyed Catherine’s story, seeing her overcome the sexism set in place to become the first female Cleaner. I found myself quickly rooting for her as Jenkins led us through a very believable personal development as she confronts the realities of her new job and gets in quickly over her head. 4 Star Rated Burn the Dead: Purge Review

The situation she finds herself in during the Crandale outbreak, trying desperately to protect two kids, is nerve-wracking. The mistakes everyone makes are completely believable. The ending surprised and pleased me. I love it when writers are willing to buck the norm and give an ending that stays with you instead of tying everything up neatly.

Even though this is book two, you do not necessarily need to have read book one to understand where everything is at and what’s going on. I’d recommend it though, simply because Burn the Dead: Quarantine is a fun, fast-paced read. I would highly recommend this series and this author to anyone who is a horror fan.

          1. Last night I was purposely watching a bad movie, don’t ask. Anyway, I didn’t bat an eye as they killed person after person. Then they killed the dog and I bawled like a baby. I have weird triggers.

        1. I has learned a lesson. When you have almost 200 book reviews on your site, don’t decide to do a big change that affects each of them so you have eto go back through and re-edit one by one. *wince*
