I love, love, love dystopian books. I could talk all day about the dystopian books I love, both YA and adult.
But it’s the zombie apocalypse that draws me in, every time. Mention zombies, and you’ve got my attention. I’m completely addicted to The Walking Dead–and I can’t wait to discuss the previous Sunday’s episode every week with the folks over at Contagious Reads. I’ve even stuck it out with SyFy’s Z-Nation, despite some (glaring, obvious, painful!) problems. And I’ve done some writing about zombies in my academic life, too–I have an article (co-authored with my husband) in this book:
And of course, anyone who reads this blog or my books knows about my fascination with vampires and vampire hunters.
So when I discovered that Melanie Karsak had written a vampire/zombie mash-up series, I suspected that I might have died and gone to heaven. (If you can call a dystopian horror novel “heaven.”)
So for this hop, I’m giving away copies of both books currently available in The Harvesting series. Check them out below, tell me about some of your favorite dystopian novels, enter to win, then HOP to the rest of the participating blogs!
Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for the beginning of the end.
Carnie. Ride jockey. Roustabout. White trash. Tilt girl. Gypsy. Cricket has been called a lot of things, but she never thought survivor of the zombie apocalypse would be one of them. One day she’s barking on the midway, and the next day, the world is eating itself alive.
Cricket, along with Vella, a tarot reader, and Puck, Cricket’s mangy mutt, find themselves running for their lives, but where can you hide when mankind has fallen? Cricket will need help if she hopes to survive.
Luckily for her, we were never really alone, and apparently, magical forces want to keep this tilt girl alive.
“The world, it seemed, had gone silent. It was something we knew but did not talk about. We were alone.”
While Layla Petrovich returns home to rural Hamletville after a desperate call from her psychic grandmother, she never could have anticipated the horror of what Grandma Petrovich has foreseen. The residents of Hamletville will need Layla’s cool head, fast blade and itchy trigger finger to survive the undead apocalypse that’s upon them. But even that may not be enough. With mankind silenced, it soon becomes apparent that we were never alone. As the beings living on the fringe seek power, Layla must find a way to protect the ones she loves or all humanity may be lost.
It’s all fun and games until someone ends up undead!
