EAT SLAY LOVE by Jesse Petersen

Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored "Wall." They're feeling pretty optimistic.
That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects.

Eat. Slay. Love.
Because they haven't got a prayer.

This is the third (and last) book in the Living With The Dead series by Jesse Petersen. And after enjoying the hell out of the other two, I couldn't wait to get stuck into this one.

Sarah and David now have a new mission--they've got the zombie cure and are making their way towards the Wall to make sure it gets into the right hands. Sure, there might not even be a Wall, but it's worth the effort. So they continue to trek across the country, stumbling on other survivors along the way. Here, they meet up with an annoying reporter on a mission, and a doped-up rocker. But not before nearly being killed by some radical rednecks who want to teach them a lesson.

Oh, and there's the David-having-super-strength thing. And the zombies-don't-detect-David thing. Both seem to be side effects after receiving a dose of the cure himself, and definitely prove to be very handy.

This is another hilarious, fast-paced addition to a series that I've grown very attached to. It's got a bit of everything--hungry zombies, lots of zombie shooting, plenty of funny banter, some sad moments, some happy moments, and some darn-scary moments. Besides, Sarah and David are so likeable, I'm very sad to see them go. I can't believe the publisher dropped this series. I'm seriously bummed about it. :(

At least I can buy myself a copy of this Kindle book, featuring short stories set in the same world but featuring other characters.
