You might get your undead fix with Zombie Flight by J.P. Westfind, but calling it just another zombie story does it a disservice. As readers are taken thousands of feet up in the air with no escape, the walls of the Dreamliner begin to close in and turn the average flight from Japan to Los Angeles into a claustrophobic and heart-pounding thriller. We are introduced to the Mustang disease almost right off the bat; its symptoms and origin are pretty vague, but make no mistake ... it is not your typical infection. The disease is treatable and is known to most people, so say goodbye to the trope of ignorance in your usual zombie flicks. The characters here are smart and cunning. Those with the disease are called wormers and, just like any person with some sort of medical condition, they take medication for it so that their urges may subside. But take away their chill pills and what are you left with? Havoc and terror.

As an avid horror fan, I was electrified by the concept of Zombie Flight; it is like Snakes on a Plane meets Train to Busan. Westfind’s execution was not only magnificent, it was also touching in the way that he wrote his characters and their backstories. I found myself growing fond of certain characters, only to be betrayed by the truth. Westfind doesn’t try to fool you into feeling any which way about his characters; in fact in a way he tries to warn you not to grow sentimental toward a wormer! Fasten your seatbelts and make sure to be well acquainted with your passenger safety cards, because Zombie Flight is going to take you for a wild ride and it's only the first in the Zombie Worm Thriller saga.
