Book Review: Zombie, Indiana by Scott Kenemore

In the third book of his Zombie series, Scott Kenemore brings the explosive horror thriller of an undead outbreak in the city of Indianapolis. Zombie, Indiana takes place during the same timeline as the outbreaks in his books Zombie, Ohio and Zombie, Illinois, and has the same punch as the previous two.

Zombie, Indiana explores the impact of an invading zombie horde on a trio of Hoosier protagonists . . . each of whom have some dark secrets to keep. When the governor’s daughter mysteriously disappears on a field trip, IMPD Special Sergeant James Nolan, scholarship student Kesha Washington, and Governor Hank Burleson must all come together not only to find the governor’s daughter, but also to undertake a quest to redeem the very soul of the state itself . . . all while under constant attack from the living dead.

With humorous, memorable characters, tense action sequences, and brutal zombie violence, Zombie, Indiana will put readers in mind of some of the most compelling works of popular fiction. At once a mystery, a thriller, and a horror novel, Kenemore strikes again with this rollicking tour through America’s heartland that is nothing but a tour de force for zombie fiction fans!

Zombie, Indiana, by Scott Kenemore is the third book in his zombie series.  It's not a series in the sense of having characters that go through adventures in each book; rather, these are books all set in a zombie world with completely different characters and stories in each book.  Consequently, you do not have to read these books in any specific order.  I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  

Some of the characters in the novel didn't show much depth.  The governor and his daughter were kind of one-note players.  Also, I wanted Steven to be featured a little more, it never hurts to have a hint of romance when the earth is falling apart. Nolan and Kesha were good as main characters. I enjoyed seeing Kesha grow stronger and more capable as the story progressed.

Over all. this is a good solid zombie novel.  The twist here is that the worst of the bad guys may not be the zombies.  In a world full of crazy, who can you trust to be sane?

 I give this book 3 Bookworms.
