Dead Meat: Day 5 by Nick Clausen

I think this is my favorite book in the series. It's in a whole another league compared to the previous ones. :) 

I absolutely love the style of the story, it jumps from different characters, creating intensity and thrills, especially when characters from different storyline come together.

I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest zombies lover, they just didn't do anything for me, but this series has me converted.

It equally parts thrilling, intense, scary, and disturbingly realistic. You can almost taste the tension. It's one of those books you have to read from first to last pages in one go because you can't put it down.

There are no buffers, the story picks up right after Day 4 left.

The family escapes in the middle of the night, trying to get to the boat and sneak out of the country. They barely make it, not until one of the zombies tries to attack the little boy.

Dennis awakes from the nightmare in the bunker. It's just him and his mom for now, but there are two guys insistent on coming in (the mom is almost scarier than the zombies, I can't wait to see what she will do to them :)).

Mille, her mom, and stepfather are on the ferry, but the stepfather has been infected. When her mom doesn't listen to reason, she takes on herself to alert the captain, but before he starts to believe her it might be too late.

Josephine goes into the nursing home to say goodbye to her father, who's been infected and decides to drive in the helicopter with him and one other patient. Two zombies in close quarters, what could go wrong? :)

The situation seems hopeless, the authorities don't' seem to have a handle on things and despite lockdown, zombies are fast spreading to neighboring countries.

There were some hints of the possible ending, and I'm so pumped to see what happens next! :)

Highly recommend it, It is the perfect series to binge read, especially around Halloween.
