When the Zombie Apocalypse began in Seattle and spread within days to almost the entire western half the country, the survivors had to figure out how to deal with the plague and live one day at a time. These are their stories.

If you liked Jesse Petersen’s zombie comedies Married With Zombies, Flip This Zombie and Eat Slay Love, these nine stories are set in the same world, but from the perspective of other survivors.

In The Dead: Volume 1 is a collection of short stories all centered around the zombie apocalypse. Each story contains new characters, new scenarios, and new locations, as the Outbreak spreads across the United States.

Each set of characters couldn't be less different, but Petersen weaves each story together with her unique brand of wit, snark, and humor. Her descriptions of the zombies are so vivid that you can actually imagine yourself running from the zombies in the stories!

Some stories were more detailed than others and I was partial to those as the endings had more "closure", while others had the type of ending that had each reader use their imagination to decide the character's fate.

One thing that stood out to me was that the premise of every story had the potential to be fleshed out more, so I truly hope Petersen decides to revisit some of these characters again in the future because to me, some of them are just begging to have a full-length book of their own!!

Fans of zombie books will most definitely enjoy In The Dead: Volume 1 - and will equally be left wanting more!

Rate: 5/5
