When the world ends, you adapt or die. Can two strangers trapped in a zoo survive as zombies close in around them?

Zookeeper Imogen is flying high. She loves her work caring for endangered Iberian Lynxes and a promotion is on the horizon. Then a colleague throws her under the bus and her entire life goes into free-fall.

Mike dropped out of college to raise his sisters. Now, twenty years later, it’s time to live for himself. First step of his new life: marry his girlfriend. But an unwelcome surprise derails his proposal, and the future he’s longed for slips from his grasp.

When the zombie apocalypse strikes, Imogen and Mike are trapped inside the zoo. If Imogen wants to protect her lynxes, she’ll have to adapt. If Mike wants to find his family, he needs to survive.

Together, they must find a way out of the zoo—before it becomes as deadly as the ravenous hordes beyond its fence.

Steel City Apocalypse is a sister series of The Undead Age zombie apocalypse adventure. If you like Sarah Lyons Fleming and Christopher Artinian, you’ll devour this gritty adventure.

My Review:

When I opened Undead Menagerie and started reading I expected zombies right away but alas the zombies were slow in coming my way once they did the pace picked up and ran. The more I read the more I wanted to read. I mean I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough to satisfy myself.

I love me some zombies and as always, I wanted to see them from the beginning. But I was more than happy once the zombies showed up on the scene as I can’t remember any zombies quite like the ones in Undead Menagerie. The new twists on zombies in Undead Menagerie are so very awesome for lack of a better word at the moment.

Oh man, I could see each and every zombie as they were described. And speaking of descriptions they were excellent as well. The descriptions were so well written that I had no problem seeing it all play out as if I was right there. Oh, but I am glad I wasn’t.

We have a zookeeper, Imogen who wants nothing more than to stay with all her animals in the zoo to keep them safe. Imogen meets Mike on the road just as the undead comes to life. A zombie is attacking Imogen trying to bite her on the neck when Mike spots them. He races over and has a hard time putting that zombie down. After Mike saves Imogen they take off for the zoo.

Mike wants to go find his girlfriend Step at the hospital where she works but Imogen doesn’t think it is safe. Mike also has to go find his sisters to make sure they are ok and safe. Mike is determined to find his loved ones and no one or nothing will stand in his way.

Undead Menagerie has been a great read that kept me glued to my seat the whole way from beginning to end. Once those zombies did make their appearance on the scene I was hooked and the action never let up. I can’t wait for the next book in the Steel City Apocalypse.

I highly recommend Undead Menagerie to all zombie fans! Grab your copy of Undead Menagerie today and fight some zombies!
