Review - After the Cure by Deirdre Gould @scullerytales

Eight years ago the December Plague swept through the human population of earth. The Infected were driven mad by the disease, becoming violent and cannibalistic, killing even those closest to them without hesitation. Six years ago, the tiny surviving community of Immune humans found a cure, and the Infected began to wake up and realize what they'd done. And what had been done to them. Over time, society began to rebuild itself. Now it is ready to judge those responsible for the Plague. Nella Rider, the court psychologist and Frank Courtlen a defense attorney are trying to establish the truth. But more depends on it than they know. They race to find the answers they need before the fragile remains of humanity vanish for good.

Review - I've read a lot of zombie novels and I can say this one is really different for a zombie story. It's more like a mystery adventure and that's can make it even more exciting if every moan you hear could be your last.

There is a romance thrown into the mix and for not going into graphic detail, the reader definitely know what time it is. It's sexy time. Gould uses excellent literary skills to bring the reader intimately close to the action yet in the end, give the characters privacy and preserve their modestly. It was hot talk but in an intelligent way.

The zombie stuff is the same old, same old but the twist regarding the cured having to deal with what they had done is solid horror. The mystery is truly a mystery and having a rush to complete the puzzle in time, gets my heart pumping. This is only book one but ends well enough for me not having to continue on in the series.

Check it out.
