Char Robinson is my Woman In Horror today! It is a real pleasure to know this young lady. Her stories are geared to Young Adult and adult readers, but that doesn't mean her stories are dull. Far from it. Her dialogue is strong, the mild language she uses able to pull out meaning and suspense. And, although she describes every scene perfectly, she doesn't sugar-coat things with outrageous over-description. Why should she? Her main goal is to keep the story roaring full-steam ahead.

Char is an Air Force Veteran. I had to add that in because I'm a Veteran. Thank you for your Service, young lady! I admire the spunk of a woman who feels the need to serve our country.

Her first book, Zombified, is chock full of twists, turns, and surprises. This is 578 pages of action packed horror scenes. No skinny read here. Her reviews pretty much agree that the ending is fantastic and leaves her readers hungering for more.

Enter Zombified: Book Two: Shady Oaks. Leaving the fortified warehouse in the first novel, our super protagonists move to Shady Oaks where they enjoy small town life. The joy doesn't last very long. After all, we are talking about Zombies. What will happen? Don't look at me. Buy both of these great books and find out for yourselves.

As good as Char is with her Zombie stories, and with a possible book of short stories on the way, she also has a children's book, The Adventures of Silly Sammi The Cocker Spaniel. I love it when an author is able to cross genres. This story is cute and has interior art. Gotta love that!

So, for a unique reading experience with Zombies cavorting around within scenes of mayhem and non-stop action, Char is your lady.

Char Robinson is a Woman In Horror!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Traditional Zombies August 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When a new virus spreads throughout the population, Mick's family is summoned with several other families to take refuge at Hudson Place; the survival fortress was built by Dave, who has some sort of work and/or personal connection to Mick and the others. Dave is one of those guys who always believed an apocalypse would happen eventually, but Mick is reluctant to believe that zombies exist until, shortly after arriving at Hudson Place, he realizes how lucky they are to have survived the first few days of the outbreak.

At Hudson Place they use a strobing light as a beacon to other survivors, so the somewhat large group grows even larger, causing them to go through their supplies faster. One of the new arrivals, Charlie, plans to go to the nearby town of Shady Oaks to find his daughter. Mitch's group hopes that Shady Oaks could be cleared out and secured to allow for the relocation of new survivors. Charlie and his scouting party make a startling discovery about the zombies at Shady Oaks, and realize the infection might not be limited to humans. Meanwhile, the Hudson Place faces a threat from a another group that is capturing survivors to use in medical experiments in an effort to find a cure for the virus.

I liked the author's writing style; Robinson didn't waste time with flowery descriptions of the settings. The author sticks mostly to dialogue between characters as well as action scenes to keep the storyline going, although the POV --which is mostly third-person-- occasionally shows us what some of the main characters are thinking. However, for a horror novel this story could have had more gore, and fewer characters to keep track of. (I was kind of hoping more of them would have died to make it easier.) I also would have preferred to see more zombie scenes, but I gave Zombified 5-stars because the story held my attention the entire way through, and the ending was handled well with an epilogue, instead of the typical abrupt endings I've been seeing in book series.

Although some people might find Robinson's style a bit raw, the story itself was thrilling and full of suspense. I look forward to the next book which will go into more detail about the Shady Oaks resettlement.
