Alex South's zombie novel, Swarm, is a fun read for fans of the zombie genre. Although it may have some predictable moments, Swarm is still a thrilling read and filled with the desired zombie gore and adventure. South does not waste anytime getting to the action. From the very first page, South drags the reader into an apocalyptic and terrifying reality that life as we once knew it, is now over.
The characters are developed fairly well, but in some cases could use a bit more background information. The story is typical of zombie novels, but if that is all you are looking for, this book will fulfill your needs. The protagonists face all the dangers of a zombie apocalypse such as, starvation, flesh eating hordes of fast moving zombies, and fellow survivors showcasing desperation. What else could you want??
Swarm is a great read for all zombie fans and I look forward to continuing this series and seeing how the characters transform and overcome the daunting and terrifying obstacles of a world now overwhelmed with zombies.
