The dead are closing in&

Trapped in a storeroom, under siege from the Undead and the Infected, Allison Hewitt is having a very bad day. Stuck with a bunch of co-workers, they struggle to cover the everyday basics. Looking for solace, she manages to find a connection to the world – using the military\’s wireless network – SNET. Through her blog, they are able to see the true extent of the Infection.

But with the monsters closing in, Allison and her co-workers are forced to flee. Into the streets they journey, soon to find out that some of their worst enemies aren\’t always the Undead&

Allison Hewitt is Trapped is Madeleine Roux\’s new novel.

Allison is one of this year\’s toughest characters. Reading this book was an absolute thrill. I didn\’t want to put it down&

There is never a dull moment. When they\’re not busy with the constant action, fighting and defending themselves from the ‘groaners\’ and ‘floaters\’ aka Zombies, they\’re having group meetings to discuss the everyday amenities, like food, supplies and the dreaded toilet issue.

Now, you may think, well that\’s not very exciting, but Roux has managed to infuse a healthy dose of humour, which will have you, embarrassingly, laugh out loud in public (Or perhaps that\’s just me).

I did admittedly think one of Allison\’s actions in particular was a bit extreme, but it\’s a gritty novel, so that\’s pretty much expected. For fans of Alice in Resident Evil, this is a brilliant book for you.

From the first page, you\’re thrown into the action, and it does not stop. It is an absolute whirlwind ride through a sinister, dark and ominous city. There are plenty of fun characters, dire situations, and a strong protagonist, with a very smart mouth. Madeleine Roux\’s novel, Allison Hewitt is Trapped, is one of the single of the most exhilarating reads you\’ll find this year.

So grab an axe and be prepared& The apocalypse is coming.
