Ed and Brock are seasoned grave-robbers with hundreds of bodies stolen and sold to be able to put food in their stomachs in 1800‘s England. What they couldn’t possibly know is that while it’s not easy living topside, there has been a vicious underground battle between two kinds of unnatural creatures being fought beneath their feet since before they were born. When a grave robbery goes wrong and the two are sepa-rated, Ed tracks Brock to an estate in the countryside where the war has begun to hit the surface when a Lord has been infected by a virus that leaves him hungering for human flesh. To survive, Ed must outwit zombies, a race of primitive creatures, and human foe alike to escape a terror that has been waging underground for hundreds of years and is ready to see the light of day.

I read this book in one sitting, purely because it is unputdownable. When it did end, I found myself wanting more, and that is not to say that I was disappointed. I was absolutely ecstatic that I had just read the 137 pages D.A. Chaney has constructed. The characters are perfectly-formed; you instantly love the ones you are intended to, whilst loathing the villains with a passion. The main protagonist is a fantastic character, and I won’t give too much away but he is not all he seems, and all is soon revealed after a few pages. The creatures – and their wounds – are vividly described, which I love when done correctly, and Chaney certainly knows what she is talking about when it comes to zombies and their traits.
I eagerly await the next installment – or indeed anything that drips from the pen of Ms Chaney.
