Wow, just wow. When I first heard the premise of the book, I had a lot of reservations. Although I am a Paranormal fan, I have never really gotten into the whole Zombie craze. I am not really into military espionage, either. Needless to say, I honestly thought I was going to have to come up with positive things to say for this book. I WAS WRONG! This book is really fast paced. It catches you in the beginning and does not let go until the end. There are so many forces at work here, at times it seems to be too much, but then they all tie in together and make sense. That takes pure talent. Also, Mr. Moore has managed to blend a bunch of genres into one and make them work very well together. You get your romance between Nathan and Evelyn, Zombies for all you Zombie lovers out there, the military espionage, and just the military workings at all. Somehow, they all flow seamlessly. This book is also a lesson in “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” You will also see how a mother’s love can overcome just about anything. Last but not least, when you get into this book and really think about it, it is kind of scary how easily this particular situation could come to be a real thing. I can’t wait to see what is in store in the sequel that is on it’s way soon. I am hoping it will answer some of the questions I was left with at the end of the book. Obviously, maybe I need to take a lesson in judging a book by its cover too, because I would have missed out on a great book if I had not went outside my comfort zone. Mr. Moore definitely has a new fan in me. ( )

My Review:

Author Ian D. Moore resides in the UK and is, among other things, an administrator for a group of over 300 Indie Authors. He’s even done a charity anthology for MacMillan Cancer Support. Salby Damned started out being written on a Samsung Galaxy 4 mobile phone, posted to Facebook; with the last 40% written on his pc, finally reaching release in August 2014. This is the first installment of a very promising series. Next in series actually releases August 1, 2016 so this is the perfect time to get started on this extraordinary first volume if you haven’t yet.

Salby Damned was well thought out and the author very well educated in all things military. I found it very easy to understand and follow along, though I have no military background. Our “zombies” are not the average, slow, mindless beings we are used to reading about. These deadheads, dubbed by Nathan, one of the main characters, were created from a biological weapon created by the government. No surprises there, right? Somehow the author was skilled enough to be able to include romance and witty comments in the face of such danger and confusion. Although that could be a coping mechanism resulting from the stress, it’s fascinating how smoothly it flowed. While there is a lot of action, it was slow going due to the tremendous amount of detail added, which could be good or bad depending on the reader. I personally would have preferred more focus on the destruction of the deadheads instead of on the day to day goings on with the survivors. All in all, though, I thought it was a great first installment in the series and would recommend you, the reader, to give it a shot. This copy gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
