Review: AM13 Outbreak Shorts: The Complete Collection by Samie Sands @SamieSands


AM13 Outbreak Shorts: The Complete Collection

by Samie Sands

March 24, 2020

GENRE: Horror, Zombies, Science Fiction



BLURB:

The zombie apocalypse has arrived, the virus has been dubbed as AM13, and the human race is struggling to survive. Here are some short stories to accompany Lockdown, Forgotten, Extinct, and Not Dead Yet (but they can be read as standalone)...delve in and enjoy life among the undead!

Outbreak: No one has it worse than Rachael! First her parents make her move to a crappy new town, then Zac starts ignoring her, and just to top everything off...the rumours of a zombie apocalypse seem to have more truth to them than anyone could have imagined!

Quarantine: Katie did not sign up for this when she went to medical school. She's now working as a nurse at one of the specialist medical facilities set up for the AM13 virus. She doesn't want the humdrum of dealing with sick, dying patients every day, she wants to be the hero who finds a cure! As the Lockdown starts, and more people with the virus are bought in, can she keep control of the situation?

Crackdown: Oliver might have a slightly shady past, but he joined the police force to make the world a better place, how was he supposed to know the whole world was going to go to hell? Now, with zombies roaming the earth, he has to try and follow orders, whilst sticking to his (okay maybe newly found) morals and stop his old self from coming back.

One Year On: It's a year into the apocalypse, how are our favourite characters surviving?



My Review:

AM13 Outbreak Shorts: The Complete Collection is a collection of four shorts, Outbreak, Quarantine, Crackdown and One Year on…. It is told from many different points of view.

A flu like virus has swept through the country killing everyone it latches onto. The dead walk the lands looking for human flesh to devour. The AM13 Outbreak Shorts tells how a young girl, a nurse, a police officer among others survived a zombie outbreak and how they dealt with the day to day living among zombies.

AM13 Outbreak Shorts tells how they would find themselves in the middle of a horde of zombies and then some how manage to come out alive. The characters learn that zombies are not the only monsters in the world.

AM13 Outbreak Shorts are all fast paced reads filled with action, suspense, horror, love and zombies of course. The world building is totally awesome as well as the characters. There were some great and awesome characters in the AM13 Outbreak Shorts.

I highly recommend AM13 Outbreak Shorts: The Complete Collection to all zombie fans and apocalyptic fans. I would also recommend any book in the AM13 Outbreak Series. One click your copy today to begin this amazing story.



Outbreak

AM13 Shorts Book 1

by Samie Sands

February 25, 2020

GENRE: Horror, Zombies, Science Fiction



BLURB:

No one has it worse than Rachael! First her parents make her move to a crappy new town, then Zac starts ignoring her, and just to top everything off...the rumours of a zombie apocalypse seem to have more truth to them than anyone could have imagined!



My Review:

Rae’s dad gets a new job in a new town and moves the family there right before the new school year starts. Rae finds herself in a new town with no friends as a flu like virus is sweeping through the country. No one may get to attend school for a while with the quarantine set to go in motion in a couple of days.

Rae gets tired of being cooped up so she decides to take a stroll through the town it is not long before she finds herself running as hard and fast as she can after she hears gun shots of course until she runs right smack dab into the middle of a bunch of zombies.

Outbreak is the first book in the AM13 Outbreak Series Shorts. Outbreak is filled with lots of action from the very beginning and never lets up until the last page is turned. Once I picked it up it had me racing to the end wondering if Rae was going to make it out as human or if she would fall prey to the virus.

I highly recommend Outbreak to all zombie fans and apocalyptic fans. I would also recommend any book in the AM13 Outbreak Series. One click your copy today!



Quarantine

AM13 Shorts Book 2

by Samie Sands

March 3, 2020

GENRE: Horror, Zombies, Science Fiction



BLURB:

Katie did not sign up for this when she went to medical school. She's now working as a nurse at one of the specialist medical facilities set up for the AM13 virus. She doesn't want the humdrum of dealing with sick, dying patients every day, she wants to be the hero who finds a cure! As the Lockdown starts, and more people with the virus are bought in, can she keep control of the situation?



My Review:

The virus is slowly making its way though person after person as more and more start to turn and become zombies. The quarantine is in place now and anyone who is sick is being taken away. Katie, Hannah and Dave are in charge of the sick. They are given orders to kill all the infected. Katie is a nurse doesn’t think she can kill anyone. She took an oath to take care of the sick, to save lives not take lives. But the question is what will Katie do when a monster comes at her trying to kill her?

Soon they are overrun with infected, zombies and humans when new orders come in. Katie wants to run and get out she doesn’t want anything to do with the new orders. But after what she has just witnessed her outlook of the whole situation may be about to take a turn.

Quarantine is the second book in the AM13 Outbreak Series Shorts and is just as good if not better than its predecessor Outbreak. Quarantine maybe a short story but it has so much between its pages you never realize it especially after you are dragged into its world of chaos and zombies. Once I picked it up I was pulled into its depths and the world around me left me I no long knew where I was nor did I care.

I highly recommend Quarantine to all zombie fans and apocalyptic fans. I would also recommend any book in the AM13 Outbreak Series. One click your copy today!



Crackdown

AM13 Shorts Book 3

by Samie Sands

March 10, 2020

GENRE: Horror, Zombies, Science Fiction



BLURB:

Oliver might have a slightly shady past, but he joined the police force to make the world a better place, how was he supposed to know the whole world was going to go to hell? Now, with zombies roaming the earth, he has to try and follow orders, whilst sticking to his (okay maybe newly found) morals and stop his old self from coming back.



My Review:

Crackdown picks up where Quarantine left off with Oliver getting everyone from the Medial Specialist Facility that was still alive and uninfected out past all the zombies and back to the police stataion where Oliver worked before the AM13 virus took over the world. Everyone is safe at the police station for the time being.

Katie is having a hard time dealing with what is going on and what she almost did. The teenager from Outbreak is back and doing her part in trying to make the jail cells a nice place to live for everyone at the moment. Rae also spends her days trying to help Katie come back from where ever it is she has gone within herself.

The zombies are still running around outside keeping everyone inside where it is safe. Oliver loses a good friend of his when they are out looking for supplies. Oliver has some issues from his past before the outbreak to deal with. An old friend from Katie’s past makes an appearance on the scene causing poor Oliver some heart ache as he is falling deeply for Katie.

Crackdown is the third book in the AM13 Outbreak Series Shorts and like its predecessors it just gets better and better with time as they say. The world building is just so awesome. There is action from the first page and keeps on rolling out with each flip of the page. As with the other two I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. I love the zombie world and the more of the AM13 Outbreak world I read the more I want. I can’t wait to dive into the next AM13 Outbreak Series Shorts story One Year On…..

I highly recommend Crackdown to all zombie fans and apocalyptic fans. I would also recommend any book in the AM13 Outbreak Series. One click your copy today!



One Year On

AM13 Shorts Book 4

by Samie Sands

March 17, 2020

GENRE: Horror, Zombies, Science Fiction



BLURB:

The zombie apocalypse has arrived, the virus has been dubbed as AM13, and the human race is struggling to survive. It's a year into the apocalypse, and a lot of the characters are still alive...for now.

But will they stay that way?



My Review:

One Year On is told from many, many characters points of view as each of their stories come to a close for now. Zombies are still walking the Earth. As each of the characters soon learn there are more than one kind of monster in the world and zombies just might not be the thing you have to fear the most.

As time goes on and everyone is trapped before walls the only thing that is keeping the alive for the time being. Stress and tempers heat up causing everyone to be on edge. The tension builds as each page is turned drawing me in further and further.

I have so enjoyed reading the AM13 Outbreak Series Shorts and really hated when I flipped to the last page to see all the characters stories coming to a close. I hope that this is not the end of the AM13 Outbreak Series. I hope to see more of this world and its characters.

I highly recommend One Year on…. to all zombie fans and apocalyptic fans. I would also recommend any book in the AM13 Outbreak Series. One click your copy today!
