Book Review: Survive to Dawn (London Undead #3) by PJ Schnyder

The zombie epidemic in London has been contained, but that's all the werewolf pack that protects the city has been able to manage. Danny, as pack medic, is concerned the epidemic isn't showing any signs of slowing down. And that the pack's Alpha is too focused on eliminating the deadly threat to consider working toward a cure. When a team of American scientists arrive, talking of a vaccine, Danny is quietly hopeful.

Deanna thought she was prepared for anything. But an argument with the London pack leaves her research team exposed and alone, on their own against countless hordes of the walking dead. Within hours, her colleagues are slaughtered…and it's only because of Danny that she manages to get out alive.

Deanna unhinges Danny in every way, tempting him beyond reason. She also pushes him to face the one thing he'd been avoiding: his Alpha is wrong. Simply surviving isn't the answer…it can't be.

I received this ARC for free in exchange for an honest review.  Survive to Dawn is the third book in the London Undead series by PJ Schnyder.  The first thing I did was buy the first book in the series, Bite Me.  I like to read series books in order, and I thought it would help give me background on what had happened so far.  Actually, it wasn't necessary to do that with this series.  Survive to Dawn can be read as a stand-alone book.

The premise for this series is a good one, werewolves fighting zombies.  Unfortunately, in my opinion, the writing didn't stand up to the idea.  There was next to no world building, the explanation for how the zombies were created and what that did to London was glossed over quickly.  

There was very little character development.  We find out that Danny is very old.  Deanna's background is revealed a little more thoroughly as it relates to the storyline.  Their relationship is meant to be something like love at first site, but there's absolutely no heat, no chemistry between them.  

Unfortunately, I found myself just wanting to hurry the story along and be done with it.  Even the zombies weren't very scary, although the scene where they found her scientist friend in the park was good.  This zombie series just wasn't for me.

 I give this book 2 Bookworms.
