Review: Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of) by F.J.R. Titchenell @FJR_Titchenell @yaboundtourspr

Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of)
Expected publication: April 4th 2017
Publisher: Createspace
Genre: Horror, Zombies, Young Adult, Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Fantasy


The world is Cassie Fremont’s playground. Her face is on the cover of every newspaper. She has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would do the chicken dance with death to make her smile. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her friends is still missing, trapped somewhere in the distant, practically impassable wreckage of Manhattan.

Still, Cassie’s an optimist, more prone to hysterical laughter than hysterical tears, and she’d rather fight a corpse than be one. She’ll never leave a friend stranded when she can simply take her road trip to impossible new places, even if getting there means admitting to that boy that she might love him as more than her personal jester. Skillfully blending effective horror with unexpected humor, this diary-style novel is a fast-paced and heartwarming read.

“Heartbreak, humor, a very large number of crushed skulls and even romance ensue . . . . Readers who don’t mind a little brain spatter on the windshield will be happy they took this particular trip.” —Kirkus Reviews.

“You know when you read a book about teens and you think the author just didn’t get it? Well, F.J.R. Titchenell gets video gaming, paintballing, Vespa riding, teenage tomboy angst, true love, the uses of theater paint—oh, and killing zombies.” —Lehua Parker, author of the Nene Award-nominated Niuhi Shark Saga.

“The story is fast, filled with dark humor, and lots of blood and guts.” —All Things Urban Fantasy.

My Review:

Cassie Fremont and a group of her friends are on a camping trip and one day when they are out playing with their paintball guns Cassie shoots a guy that she just happens to have a major crush on. But he doesn’t stay dead long before she is has to kill him a second time by bashing his brains in with said paintball gun. She tries to explain to everyone that he turned into a zombie but no one listens to her and so she in thrown in jail. Of course it doesn’t take people long to realize what is that Cassie may have been right all along when everyone starts turning into zombies.

Cassie escapes jail and soon learns that one of their friends is trapped in New York so they all set out on a road trip from California to New York to rescue this girl who happens to be the twin sister of a girl that is in their group.

Along the way they run into lots of zombies of which they bash their brains in. They all have their own weapon of choice; Cassie weapon of choice just happens to be a baseball bat. She is very good with it too she can take out zombie one handed if the need arises. The undead are not the only things to fear no you have to fear the living more and I think Cassie and her friends learn that real quick like when they meet up with a group of people who want to take their heads off like they would the zombies.

I have always been a fan of the undead and I guess I will be a fan until the day I die. I am a diehard fan of The Walking Dead. I am one those fans that gets real upset if you miss with me while The Walking Dead is on. So with saying it leads me to this point of where I will read anything I can get my hands on that has zombies, walkers, undead ect… in it.

So when I saw the summary of Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of) I knew I had to read it and I am so glad that I got to read Cassie’s story and her amazing journey across the country fighting zombies. I loved hearing her confessions of bashing in zombie brains with her bat. Cassie is a straight up kind of girl who will tell you like it is. I would like to know more about Cassie and zombie killing days.

If you have not read Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of) and you love zombies then let me suggest that you pick up your copy today and get started on an amazing zombie killing journey.
