Review: ebook provided by author
Marooned on a stranded island, the Robinson family must learn to survive in their new alien surroundings. They forage for food, filter water, and face dangerous predators. But they're about to discover they aren't the only ones to have survived The Long Journey disaster...
The classic tale, inspired by Robinson Crusoe, written by Johann David Wyss, adapted by Perrin Briar, is an adrenalin-pumping adventure of zombie survival.
Part of the Blood Memory universe.
I received this book to give an honest review. What can I say I love zombies, I love watching shows and movies to reading about them. Not sure what it is that attracts me to them but they are fun to read about. With this book there were not as many zombies as was in book one, this story was more of how the Robinson's are trying to adapt to living off the island they have been shipwrecked on.
We see how the family comes together slowly but surely to help each other out. They all have a terrific skill that helps out.
I loved the one part where Liz tells her husband when he is acting different and not himself (though we later learn why) that there is plenty of island. Meaning he can live on one side and her and boys can live where they are now. It felt like something I would say to my husband.
Now you know this story is not going to be without zombies somewhere and they do show up but it isn't anything like it was on book one. I am sure that in book three there are going to be even more zombies and obstacles that this family is going to have to over come.
If you enjoy zombie stories then get this series, I don't think you would be disappointed.
