Zombie Park (The Z-Day Trilogy) (Volume 1) by Mark Cusco Ailes is a horror story we hope to never see come true. Ben Cutler just wants one thing – a way of earning a good sum of money honestly. Getting another job is proving difficult until he comes up with a genius idea. An advert on the television leads him to the riches he always dreamed of with the advent of his very own idea – a Zombie Park. Nicholas and Kathy Holloman are very clever scientists and they are working on a serum that creates zombies for General Wilbur Poe. These zombies are “smart” zombies and they are being created as soldiers, not as a fun fair attraction. Nicholas wants his wife out of the way so he can take the glory and the money for himself, but things are not going as planned. The experiments are not working and the zombie project looks set to fail as the zombies get out of control. Nobody realizes the real reason behind Poe’s army – a weapon of mass destruction – and by the time they find out it just might be too late to stop them.

Zombie Park (The Z-Day Trilogy) (Volume 1) by Mark Cusco Ailes is a gripping read. It is Jurassic Park with a terrible difference, a difference we can only hope stays in the minds of the story tellers. Mr. Ailes has written an ingenious story, a plot that continues to thicken up nicely as the book goes on. It is something different to other zombie stories, and I have read quite a few. This one has a different slant on it, a slant that, unfortunately, could become a possibility as scientists continue to play with nature. The character development in the book was second to none, matching the plot well, and this is the kind of book that could easily be made into a movie. Waiting eagerly for the second part!
