(Review) End Dayz by Kellie Sheridan

Title: End Dayz
Series: The Hitchhiker Strain #0.5
Author: Kellie Sheridan
Pub. Date: January 5th 2013
Publisher: Patchwork Press

It's month after the dead first began to walk. The miracle vaccine that was supposed to save us all has failed.

Now, four teens fight to stay alive as a stronger, smarter breed of zombie begins to appear, threatening to end humanity for good.

Four short stories, 11,000 words total.

Prequel to Mortality.



My Thoughts

End Dayz is a great prequel to Mortality. Through this short story, we get to know a little more about the guys, and girls, we will learn to love, and hate, in the first book.

If the main reason why you can’t wait to sink your teeth into this story is because you want to know more about Savannah, you will be disappointed. She is only mentioned in passing. On the other hand if you want to want to know more about Pierce, Belle, Alex, and Zack, you will be in for a treat. We get to know more about them and how they got to where they were in Mortality. We also get more detailed accounts of some events that had already happened by the time the first book started, but were vaguely looked back on.

The same air of suspense, desperation, and frustration the characters emanated in Mortality is also present in End Dayz, which is only natural if zombies are trying to eat your flesh. The sensory and zombie descriptions are still vivid and shudder worthy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short story and can’t wait for Duality to come out.

My rating is 4 out of 5 stars.
