December 2011 – Dead Cells – Adam Millard

Life Doesn’t Mean Life!

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)

This guy must be one of the best kept secrets in British horror writing. And, if you all know this already, why didn’t anyone tell me?
Dead Cells comes from the Crowded Quarantine stable is a ripping zombie novel set in the confines of a maximum security prison. So, sure there are still zombies to be scared of but you got to add to that hundreds of murderers, rapists and gangsters, not to mention one sick prison governor.
This review won’t contain any spoilers but the actual outbreak scenario is very well-handled here. I liked the way the characters were developed and the story moves along nicely.
If case you were worried about there being no guns, don’t fret, once the boys get into the armoury – even more hell breaks loose...
Another thing, I had the paper version and I have to say this is a very well put together volume, the font makes reading very easy and you can spot the artwork of Crowded Quarantine book from a mile off – they are really good covers. Small thing I know but I liked it.
So, in summary, a cracking zombie novel for your money. Well-written by an author who obviously takes his stuff seriously. The setting is unusual and this adds something to a great story.
