Review: Time of Death: Asylum (Time of Death Book #2) by Shana Festa

Surviving the journey is just the beginning.

The last two months have brought nothing but death and destruction for Emma Rossi. She survived the initial zombie outbreak with her husband, Jake, and their dog, Daphne, but the cost was steep: Sanibel has fallen.
In a world where the only constant is change, the group is pushed to their limits before reaching the gates of Asylum, a coastal stronghold in Sarasota, Florida.

Once again, Emma must navigate an apocalyptic wasteland filled with relentless hordes of the undead and other menacing horrors that threaten her survival.

Only thing is certain. No one is safe from what lurks on either side of Asylum's gates. Asylum may offer more than just safety.

Sanity will be tested; and many won't live to tell the tale.

Review: Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde (Zombie Attack #1) by Devan Sagliani

Image
When 16 year old Xander's older brother Moto left him at Vandenberg Airforce Base he only had one request - don't leave no matter what. But there was no way he could have known that one day zombies would gather into groups big enough to knock down walls and take out entire buildings full of people. That was before the rise of the horde!

Now Xander is on the run, fleeing south to Port Hueneme to locate his brother with nothing but his martial arts training and the katana blade left to him. Along the way he'll have to fight for his life against other survivors, neo-Nazi's, outlaw bikers, gang bangers, cannibals, cult members, and a seemingly endless sea of flesh hungry zombies.

But Xander is far from alone. Traveling with him are Benji, a 12 year old comic book geek, and Felicity Jane, a childhood celebrity with wild mood swings. Will they make it together in one piece to the safe zone or will they become the next meal for a hungry horde of wild zombies?

Product Review: Magnetic Screen Door by iGotTech

Image
We received this product via Tomoson and the company iGotTech. 
I have been wanting to get one of these for the longest time. Not only do they look cool, but I figured it would be perfect for my household since both of my kids like to run in and out of the house constantly.  Now I was very picky on where I wanted to put it. I figured I would try my front door as that is the door that we all use, but it didn't look like it would work unless I put it on the outside of the house where the rain and winds would get to it.  Instead I put it on my door frame leading into my laundry room and my back door. And it seems to work perfectly. My two year old has already tried it out and likes going in and out. Now I can keep the backdoor open while we are outside and I don't have to worry about the bugs especially flies coming into the rest of the house.
It took no more than 5 minutes to install and was super easy. The only tool you need is a pair of scissors and that is so you can cut the…
