And The Blood Ran Black Review

And the Blood Ran Black

By Nathan E. Harvey

And the Blood Ran Black by [Nathan E Harvey]
Two brothers are thrust into a reality that makes them yearn for their years of deployment overseas. There were no news tickers or conspiracy theories to soften the sudden reality; the two soldiers witnessed the beginning of the end firsthand. Where would you go? Who would you save? This is the account of a small group of strangers who become family in order to somehow carry on against impossible odds.

Finally, there’s a zombie book that doesn’t have to rely on shock value and gore to elicit an emotional response. Between bouts of laughter and of tears, “And the Blood Ran Black” will have you forgetting to breathe while it unapologetically grabs you by the eyeballs.

MY REVIEW OF And the Blood Ran Black

Brothers John and Moto were fighting in the same squad overseas, when they were imprisoned by underground boxing mobsters. That’s when they discover experimental procedures were being done on people, essentially turning them into zombies. The brothers escape and make their way back to the United States for safety, and to prepare for the worse. They quickly discover the zombie virus has spread worldwide. As they search for a safe refuge, they add more people to their ragtag group. But, of course, they lose a few too.

If you like The Walking Dead, you will enjoy this story line. Almost always in these types of stories, there is an instigator, or a troublemaker. I’m glad to say that there were none. They were all likeable people. I don’t believe the story suffered for it either. I was scared for the group and feared any of them could be the next to go. After becoming so invested in each one, it was heartbreaking to imagine the next one to go. I was hoping they would all make it to the end of the book, but with this type of story, it is inevitable that some won’t make it. The twist at the end was unexpected, but welcomed.

DEadly Ties Quote 1a

MY REVIEW OF Deadly Ties

 Eighteen years ago, Getty left her granddaughter Kyara behind when she went to prison for murder. She did murder someone, just not the one she was accused of. Now that Getty is out, she is determined to extract justice by uncovering decade’s old secrets. Kyara is still hurt and angry at Getty, but has known all along that things didn’t add up. After her mother is attacked, she begins following different clues only to find everything leads back to Getty and the secrets she has knowledge of.

This was a fun read of mystery with a little romance mixed in. I liked the way the reader is in the dark of who is doing what. You had your suspicions but couldn’t be fully sure out of the pool of suspect characters. I love books that keep me guessing, and this one did just that. 

About the author

Award winning author, Maggie Thom, grew up in a house full of books and often made weekly trips to the library to get more. Reading was her go to, when it was too cold outside to play. She started experimenting with writing at a young age letting her imagination take her away on many adventures. Maggie has written everything from technical writing, to nonfiction, to fiction for children, youth and adults, along with poems and short stories. She finally settled on her love of puzzles, mysteries and roller coasters and now writes suspense/thrillers that will take you on one heck of a ride. Author of The Caspian Wine Series – Captured Lies and Deceitful Truths with Split Seconds to be out late 2016 – and her other published novel, Tainted Waters (2013 Suspense/Thriller Book of the Year through Turning the Pages Magazine). Her latest novel, Deadly Ties had just been released. 

Her motto: Read to escape… Escape to read…
