The Zombies are mutating or are they? Review of AlibiZ by Karice Bolton

The outbreak might be over, but the nightmare is just beginning...

Rebekah vows to expose the truth behind the RecruitZ that are killing the innocents. These creatures must be stopped, but so should the people controlling them. When Rebekah uncovers who is behind the uprisings, her own life becomes in danger.

Rebekah knows that she is not alone in this fight but vengeance alone won't help her and the others to victory. It is up to her to uncover the truth for the public before the world is turned over to an elite few.

Regardless of what may happen to her, she knows it's a race against time to destroy these creatures and the monsters controlling them before there is no one left worth saving.


I received this book for free from Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Barnes & Noble

This is the second of the Afterworld Series, the first being RecruitZ.  I did not read the first book so honestly the first 20 pages my brain was fried trying to figure out who Gavin was, what these Zombie creatures were, and really what the heck was going on.  As I have a quick brain, it didn’t take that long and so I could slide back into enjoying the book for what is was, a zombie post Apocalyptic novel that really peaked my interest.


Couple of reasons why it peaked my interest.  This was not your typical Zombies came, we killed them, we live YAY, no it was a evil henchmen type story with Trac being the bad guys.  TRAC for those who didn’t read the first book was an organization led by a guy named Marcus, before something happened to him… Unsure what, but it probably wasn’t good.  So TRAC was taking zombies and experimenting on them.  From what I got TRAC wasn’t creating them, but they were helping themselves in finding out what made them tick.  This proved useful and deadly for all groups concerned.


The dialogue is good, it seems natural and not strained which is good because sometimes we get those corny conversations that you want to just gag on.  This book really didn’t have any of that.  Another thing that I enjoyed was even though I didn’t read the first book, I was able to pick up on what was going on, and for the most part this book could be a stand alone if necessary.  I wouldn’t suggest it because of some of the side story lines with Gavin, Marcus, the good Dr. Etc etc.  But hey hindsight is 20/20 and I didn’t have the first one handy so what is a good vampy girl to do but read what she has.


Without going into more depth because I don’t spoil, the ending threw me, it did, I was kinda around the 85% mark thinking something was up… but I couldn’t put my finger on it and BAM yup, something was up.  Now that I have you drooling, you have to read the book :).


I give this a solid 4.5 fangs.
