1/2 Goodreads Amazon
****I received a copy of this book for my honest review****
Dr. Dora Adler fully expects to die on her 27th so when she is bitten by a patient with the zombie virus, she is resigned to her fate. However she is immune to the disease and is transferred to another lab to be tested, while there she meets Dirk. Dirk is an alpha werewolf, he is immune to the disease and the two of them can talk telepathically. The two of them plan to escape, Dora wants to find her brother, Dirk wants to take her back to his pack. Can the two of them escape the compound full of guards, get past the zombies? Will they stay together? Will they give in to the growing attraction they are feeling or will everything fall apart? This book was really good, I loved how the author kept the book from being to serious and dark, she added a lightness that was refreshing. Dirk was a great Alpha male hero, he had that aura of authority and he was willing to fight for Dora. Dora was just awesome, she is sarcastic, determined and had attitude for days. She didn't do things just because they were easier. This book is full of action, rife with sexual tension and the emotions between the characters are sweet and real, they bring to question what's more important duty or love. Apocalyptic Moon is a great book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book set in this world.
Interview With Eva
- What is it about a zombie apocalypse that intrigued you enough to write a story about it?
I’ve always been a big fan of zombie movies. From George A. Romero zombie flicks to Resident Evil to The Walking Dead. I love books by Max Brooks such as Operation Z and his more practical one, The Zombie Survival Guide. Actually, I now have quite a collection of zombie survival books.
What intrigues me is what happens when civilization comes to an end.
A disease has ravaged humanity and few survive. Those that survive must deal with flesh eating zombies, starvation/dehydration, and the inevitable gangs that will prey on the weak.
- Mixing shifters and zombies is something that I have not seen before, how did you come up with this idea?
I have written several paranormal werewolf romance novels. In fact I have studied real wolves and ravens, and teach workshops on wolf and werewolf lore. If the secret shifter society exists, why not bring them out into the opening during the zombie apocalypse? I loved combining my two favorite genres. One reviewer aptly titled my work as Dystopian Paranormal Romance.
- When writing Apocalyptic Moon did you already know how it would end or did the ending change as your writing progressed?
I had a vague idea but since I allow my characters take the helm, I was satisfied how the story ended. Always a happily ever (romance) after but only after a difficult journey.
- What is your favorite characteristic of Dr. Dora Adler?
I love her sense of humor or wit despite the high-octane stress of dealing with the undead, mad scientists, werewolves and her unusual awakening gifts.
- How would you describe Dirks personality?
Bad boy with a big heart lone wolf. An alpha hero with a tragic past who will protect those he loves with a vengeance.
- Will you be writing more books set in this world?
Yes, I’m finishing off the draft to book 2, which will be Rave’s story. Princess Ravenna known as Rave is the feisty, sultry raven shifter who has matured from spoiled princess into a young woman who is now a soldier of the Avian Intel. Like the ravens once used by Vikings to find land, our raven shifters help in finding survivors, approaching zombie hordes and living enemies.
