This would make a great introduction to the zombie genre.
It has been a while since I’d read a zombie book, largely because the stories and situations became quite repetitive. That was not the case with Salby Damned by Ian D. Moore. I was pleasantly surprised at the fresh concepts from the start and how they carried through until the end. The story was believable and, together with the depth of character development, kept me interested and wanting to see what happened.
This was a story that had its own version of zombies that I liked and for me, made it more real. The background was explained well. In addition to very well described undead action-scenes, there were interpersonal subplots, a number of gripping relationship building scenes that had me wanting more. The book involved adults as well as kids which added to the appeal.
For those fearing graphic violence, I didn’t find it bad or over-the-top. All in all, this was a fun, pleasure ride with all the elements of a good story. If you aren’t familiar with the zombie genre, I would suggest you start with this one. It is a well written story that also happens to have zombies in it.
