“Some say it started in Miami. Some say New York or London, but no one really knew for sure.” New Orleans is infested by zombies like the other cities, and two long-time friends struggle to stay alive in their beloved historical town. Time is against them, as they strive to find how the disastrous plague came to be. Written by Lazarus Infinity, Occupation is a gripping zombie story bringing a fresh twist to the genre.
The author first introduces us to the Devereaux family with historic ties in Louisiana corruption and organized crime – making them a powerful force to be reckoned with for many years. Initially, I didn’t know how the Devereaux fitted into the story until I read the ending. I enjoy reading how long-time friends, Barabbas Purify and Nicodemus Jackson, keep each other alive in the zombie-infested city. I even love their quirky names. The action scenes are tense, fast, and vividly portrayed, making it absolutely enjoyable to read. Amid all the chaos, the uninfected, living people still look forward to the Super Bowl that takes place right in the middle of the annual Mardi Gras season.
The truth behind the virus is interesting and realistic indeed – one that will make readers think deep about our political situation today. I find the quality of the writing is high and straightforward. The editing is mostly flawless. Humor is perfectly balanced with the gore and horror. On the whole, a fast-paced novelette that is on a par with any zombie novels. Fans of the genre would find it highly satisfying.
