Following Barracuda Bay’s homecoming cum zombie Armageddon, fellow zombies Maddy, Dane, and Stamp have fled to Orlando where they work at a theme park, hiding in plain sight at their jobs in the Great Movie Monster Makeover show. The three spend most of their time together in their apartment trying to avoid curious Normals and Sentinels—humans and zombie cops. While Dane and Maddy draw closer, Stamp drifts away, falling for a mysterious blonde. But when the mysterious girl puts their existence in danger, all Maddy cares about is hunting the blonde down to separate her from her head.


Y’all…I love everything I have ever read by Rusty Fischer.  And this is no exception.  I devoured this book like a zombie eating brains—once I charged my Nook.  It’s been awhile since I have read an actual non-audio book.  Zombies Don’t Forgive was a nice reintroduction to print. 

ZDF is everything we love about, nay, expect from Rusty Fischer—humor, gore, sappiness, and a little tongue-in-cheek.  And it’s perfection!

I absolutely love Maddy and Dane!  They have the been-married-for-sixty-years relationship down pat.  And it’s endearing—making them all the more lovable.  A few times I face-palmed…but they are teenagers after all, so it’s not unrealistic.  For the most part, I forgot they were zombies and just enjoyed them being who they were, living life.  But I do love all the zombie-ness, too!  It makes a quirky, interesting plot all that much more fun!

I like that Fischer writes his characters so real and honest.  Even the supporting cast is believable—there’s no caricatures of people, no exaggerations.  They behave, react, love as real people would.  And I think that’s part of what makes the Living Dead Love Story series so wonderful—I can relate to Maddy, Dane, Stamp, and the others.

If you haven’t yet started this series (or just haven’t read this installment)…You. Need. To.  Like yesterday!  We don’t get to live forever like Maddy, so don’t waste any more precious time and read Zombies Don’t Forgive soon!
