Book Review: The Book of Riley A Zombie Tale (Book of Riley #4) by Mark Tufo

When the zombie apocalypse strikes without warning one dog will hold the fate of her pack in her paws. This is the story of Riley, an American Bulldog, follow along as she tries to keep her pack safe from a zombie apocalypse. Traveling with her are Ben-Ben the high strung Yorkie, her favorite two-legger Jessie, Jessie's younger brother Zachary and Riley's arch-enemy Patches the Cat. They are a rag-tag group of survivors who when pushed to the limit realize that they are all each other has.

The Book of Riley A Zombie Tale is the 4th and final book of the Book of Riley series by Mark Tufo.  What makes this book so unique (besides the author's bizarre but hilarious sense of humor) is that animals are the main characters.  Sure, there's people in it, too, but the star is Riley, an American Bulldog.

In the craziness of the zombie apocalypse, the only sane ones seem to be the animals.  Riley, Ben-Ben the Yorkie, Patches the cat, and their human teenager Jessie with her baby brother Zachary are on a road trip to safety.  As they try to find it, they come across a lot of bad guys, zombies and human.  Riley takes on the responsibility of keeping everyone safe.  The bickering between Riley and Patches is  very funny, and sounds just like two friends or siblings fighting.

The book is fast paced and full of action.  There's plenty of blood and guts.  Some of the action is a little hard to believe, but this IS a zombie book.  I took one bookworm (star) off my rating because I didn't like the ending.  That may be selfish, but it's my rating!  However, I do recommend you read all of Mark Tufo's zombie books.  They are incredible reads!

 I give this book 3 Bookworms.
