Love in an Undead Age- Review

Surviving the zombie apocalypse was hard but saving the human race might be fatal.                      #LoveInAnUndeadAge #NetGalley

readingtoescaspeblogTen years after the zombie apocalypse a good man is still hard to find… just ask Miranda Tucci. Most are ill-equipped to breach Miranda’s emotional defenses, and even in San Jose, California, the most technologically advanced outpost of civilization left on the planet, there’s no app for mending a broken heart.
But when Connor MacGuire turns up at nearby Santa Clara University, even Miranda begins to wonder if she has finally found someone she can trust.
The Jesuit priests who lead the community at Santa Clara University are the only counter-balance to the ruthless City Council that rules Silicon Valley. They have hatched a scheme to break the monopoly on a vaccine for the zombie virus that the Council and its powerful ally, Mario Santorello, control.
As the Jesuits’ plan approaches a critical stage and Miranda is recruited to join their mission, the ghosts of her past collide with the present, plunging her into territory both strange and familiar. Will corruption continue to spread and the vaccine be used for political advantage, or can Miranda survive long enough to usher in a new age of civilization? It’s only the fate of humanity that’s suddenly resting on her shoulders. If she can bring her love life back  from the dead, how tough can saving the world be? 

I was given this book via #netgalley for an open and honest review. The Opinions shared in this post are purely mine and influenced by nothing other than the book I read.

2 Stars 

In my personal opinion this was a terrible romance, an unfinished thriller and a predictable horror. The author I think bit off more than she could chew trying to cover so many genres that she missed the mark on all of them.

Speaking of missing the mark the book was an editing nightmare, I find it very difficult to get through a book that was edited poorly. I found gender swapping, words missing and spelling errors throughout.

Characters: The characters were semi-likable and had very complicated stories that were not necessary to the story line at all. There was love triangles that were so predictable and garbage. Let’s not forget for over half the book I could not figure out the gender of Seffie.

Plot: I can’t even begin to say how much this plot had holes, like big gaping valleys. Sorry for the spoiler but wtf?!? How do we get a whole damn story with no ending, we never do figure out if they completed anything close to the mission. Do they ever get vaccines created and dispersed? Does the council still hunt them? But we do get to know that Mario and Miranda live happily ever after, after she smashes Connors zombie head in. The whole book could have gone without a romance at all and I would have given it 4.5 stars.

Overall, I will not be recommending this book. It was hard to read and even harder to talk about.
