Buy Zombie's Review of Rotter World

Buy Zombie posted an excellent review of Rotter World this afternoon.  I cited some excerpts below:

Permuted Press has been known to crank out quality zombie fiction, with classics such as ‘Day by Day Armageddon’, ‘Domain of the Dead’, ‘Eden’, ‘Empire’, ‘Dying to Live’, ‘Plague of the Dead’, ‘Down the Road’, ‘Ex-Heroes’, ‘The Infection’ and ‘Kings of the Dead’. With those heavy hitting zombie classics niched in Permuted Press’ belt, it must be pretty intimidating for the next generation of Permuted Press authors to pass along the torch, to maintain the Press’ reputation as one of the best publishers of zombie fiction. Rotter World keeps up the pace and delivers a great story that is reminiscent of some of the zombie classics, bringing out some original concepts and a different spin on the genre. 

This book has a great plot and the vampire element gives it an original spin on the zombie story. There is a lot of action, blood and gore and also, great conflicts. Maybe one or two of the conflicts seemed a little contrived, but overall, they were some pretty good action scenes. Also, not very zombie novels can give me an ‘Oh Crap!’ moment, this is mainly due to the fact that I’ve read a whack-load of zombie fiction and have read a lot of pretty twisted stuff. But, Rotter World, near the end of the book, gave me a good ‘Oh Crap!’ moment and the author gets bonus points for that.

Overall: Rotter World stands out as one hell of a zombie novel and with a little time, it will catch on and become a popular read among fans. I think somewhere down the road, people might regard Rotter World as a Permuted Press classic and I would probably be one of the people testifying to that. This story has a great plot, good characters, strong re-read value and an excellent, unique slant on the genre.
