Prequel to Mortality (March, 2013). – Goodreads.com
You know I’m a zombie fan and I’ve read Mortality, so I was excited to see this short story prequel. And the cover is absolutely killer – it caught my eye immediately. If you haven’t read Mortality, I highly recommend you do before reading End Dayz.
This novella gave me more information and background on some secondary characters from Mortality, but also a little about Savannah. Some of what I learned was expected, but I was surprised about the actions of a few characters. I enjoyed the journal style of writing in some of the chapters, allowing the reader a more introspective view of the characters’ thought processes. Alex’s story was especially heartbreaking.
Overall, this was a great companion piece to Mortality, giving me a broader perspective of events that happened before that book and I’d definitely recommend reading it.
I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley.
