Review Barely Alive by Bonnie R Paulson

Book Description

 March 23, 2012
This is the first book of a completed trilogy (with a short for fun!)

***This is a MATURE YA themed series. There are adult themes and strong language.***

In twelve weeks, seventeen-year-old Paul Ledger will be dead. At least he hopes so.

Paul is trapped in the worst cult the United States has ever seen. Infected with a zombie virus, symptoms culminate in a dead body but thriving mind over a course of twelve weeks. If he doesn’t earn the final death he longs for, he’ll be chained in a basement facility, moaning for human flesh for eternity.

Sent out to kidnap girls for food, toys, or whatever the boss wants, Paul nabs Heather McCain. He’s not a fan of humans as a general rule, but even his graying skin and insatiable hunger for her flesh don’t stop her from reaching out to him. Give him the second chance he doesn’t know he needs.

Overcome by his cravings, Paul bites her delectable skin. Amazingly, she doesn’t develop the zombie-like side effects. When the boss discovers Heather’s immunity, he gives Paul an ultimatum – deliver up Heather and her family to continue the research or watch as Paul’s brother suffers the zombie fate.

Paul has a chance to endure his short zombie existence knowing his brother is safe. But he’ll have to sacrifice Heather to do it.

***NEW COVER!***

My Review:

What a concept a zombie but still be able to think and eat regular food too but in huge amounts, that is what Paul finds out once Dominic injected him with the virus he has twelve weeks of his humanity still. When her meets heather and feels something for her and protects her with all he can. he kidnapped her with seven other girls on order of Dominic. when Dominic infects heather too and it seems that she somehow is immune for it, she won't turn.

Paul goes through loops to escape with her and keep her safe. especially for Dominic who wants her and use her to find a antidote. Something happens that push Paul over the edge he goes in search for help. he has to fight hard between his short attention spans and hunger and lust for heather. Will they survive and stay out of Dominic's claws. go read it! A very good start and depute book for Bonnie! Can't wait to read next.
