Who knew the zombie apocalypse would be caused by something we all know is deadly…but that is also all around us? Two stories intersect as the world delves into chaos – Earl, a drugged out heroin addict constantly in search of his next fix, and a family struggling with the dramas of everyday life, get no reprieve during this zombie outbreak. Can any of them survive the deadliest game of all – survival against undead, each other, and the world around them?

Hello everyone! Today I am doing something different and reviewing a novella, Everyone Dies at the End by Riley Westbrook. I believe I have only read one novella in the past couple of years so I was excited to have the opportunity to read this one in exchange for an honest review.

Everyone Dies at the End is about the zombie apocalypse. We follow two story lines that converge and have a pretty surprising ending that I totally didn’t expect to be the case and that I actually really loved.

I ended up giving this novella five stars because I really enjoyed it and it kept me on my toes. I was always surprised and I really liked the biological angle this novella took on the origination of the zombie virus. I loved that everything was affected by this zombie apocalypse because in some stories animals aren’t affected and having them be susceptible to the disease just makes it that much harder on survivors which just really ups the ante and makes it interesting for us readers. There was quite a bit of action, intensity and surprise. It’s gory, dark, dangerous and gritty – all things I really crave in a zombie story.

I was pretty much hooked from the start until the end. Being a novella that is  24,000 words, it was a very fast, light read but always entertaining. Fans of Zombie Apocalypse stories or overall horror will enjoy this! I, myself, would enjoy reading more from the author. Oh how I wish it was a novel!
