Book Review: Fatal, by TA Brock
Wow! Let me first say that I was nervous about reading Fatal. Zombie stories have never made their way to my book shelves or kindle. However, a year ago I decided to stretch my reading experience beyond romance, suspense, and non-fiction. Last week, I picked up Brock’s “Fatal.” Let me again say, “Wow.”
I’m pretty busy so I had only enough time read a few chapters each day. I hated putting Fatal down but looked forward to the next evening when I could resume reading. My focus while reading a book is on character development and an intriguing plot. Fatal has all those elements. Plus, the author, TA Brock, has the skill of an excellent writer. POV, scene descriptions, and each characters internal drama were spot on. I was placed in each setting, my heart aching for each character’s desperate need to overcome a horrific past. I was hooked from page one.
Every reader, whether you’ve read zombie novels before or not, should read Fatal. You will not regret it.
First love can be brutal. Sometimes it can be Fatal.
Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old…and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead, he had no memory of his former life. Grayson desperately wants to recapture his lost humanity, and he’s been told that there is one person in this world who can save him from his current fate before he begins to decompose. One person whose life must be sacrificed for his.
Cori Abbott has a million things to worry about. She’s the new girl in a school that’s a fraction of the size of her old one. Her antisocial tendencies are crippling her ability to make new friends. And then there’s the recent, sudden death of her father, the only man who ever understood her. The last thing Cori wants is the attention of a strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. A guy she can’t stop thinking about.
Will Cori break through Grayson’s cold exterior and find the human within, the boy who can love and understand her like no other? Will Grayson sacrifice Cori to rid himself of his undead curse, even if it means losing her forever?
