Book of the Week: Xombies by Walter Greatshell

If you're looking for something to quench your zombie thirst while waiting for the Day of the Dead remake, pick up this book by Walter Greatshell. The book takes a different approach to the zombie genre and it is an interesting one. A plague attacks women through the menstral cycle and turns them into blue skinned killers. The action is fast and furious as a military group and a young girl who is immune to the disease because she has a condition that stops her from menstrating, try to get to the polar ice cap to a secret base. There are some vivid images in the story and it really reads in a very cinematic way. I recommend it for a great escape. **** out of *****.
