“Ash Parker continues to shine as the sexiest, most badass heroine of the zombie apocalypse.  The third installment of Dana Fredsti’s Plague series is the best yet.  Funny, scary, intense, and genuinely human: PLAGUE WORLD is a thrill.  Pay attention zombie fans, because this is how you do zombies.”
