Review: Of Royal Descent by Ember Shane

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. But sometimes, under extreme circumstances, it's exactly that which kills you that makes you stronger. And faster. And a member to a new, elite race of zombies.

Armed with a current address for his biological grandfather and a slightly unusual, yet loyal best friend, Doyle Hawthorne sets out to discover the truth about his past. But answers don't come easily, and the closer Doyle arrives to his destination, the more confusing things become. Disturbing alterations to his physical appearance as well as to his personality flicker on and off as Doyle searches for a logical explanation.

Despite the increasing severity of these uncontrolled flare-ups, Doyle is determined to keep his first date with Addy - a beautiful, young woman he has met upon his arrival into town. After narrowly subduing his raging impulses, Doyle quickly decides not even death itself can keep him from her. Unfortunately, he is about to test that theory.

Once initiated, nothing can alter the process of shading - the term given to the three distinct phases of becoming a higher classification of zombie, commonly referred to as "royals". Doyle must learn to control his tendency toward violence as well as his newfound royal powers if there is any chance of protecting those he loves from a mad scientist, the government, the colony of royals, and most importantly... himself.

My Thoughts

( I received this book from the author exchanged for a honest review. Thank You To Ember Shane! )

What an awesome start to a new zombie book series and a totally different zombie book was Of Royal Descent! Just wow what a refreshing different change of zombie book this book was for me. Let me just say I don't read a lot of zombies book like that, but that doesn't mean I don't love them. I really do love zombie books! I am just really picky with zombie books because there was a few I didn't like reading but Of Royal Descent got me ready to start to pick and read more zombie books soon. Yes this book was that good for me! I haven't read a zombie book quite like this one before, but I really loved and enjoyed this book. I loved the plot, world building, the characters, the writing style and the diolgy had me laughing out loud at some parts.  I just loved everything about Of Royal Descent and I espcially loved the new take on sexie zombies! I highly do recommend this awesome book! I am most definitely going to continue reading this awesome series and I can't wait to read the next book! Well untill next time my friends!
