Tiny is not too happy to see them though and they soon get into a lot of trouble. Whist being kept as Tiny’s prisoners they make an unlikely ally who helps them to escape.
Champagne Jackson Kicks Zombie Ass by F.A. Tallahassee is different from other zombie stories I have read and I enjoyed it just as much. This one focuses on gang life and how they choose to survive the zombie apocalypse. I enjoyed the story and the characters and I feel that the speech portrayed how I would imagine gang life to be perfectly. The story was fast paced and kept me hooked all of the way through with a few surprises along the way. Although the story is not for the faint-hearted or those who offend easily as there is a lot of adult language and gory in places which I think adds to the feel of a zombie apocalypse. If you are a zombie lover then this is definitely a book you should read.
