Z Plan (Blood on the Sand) by Mikhail Lerma

He opened his eyes. ¬†He was still in this hell. Behind him he knew Matthew was standing. ¬†Cale turned around slowly not at all¬†surprised¬†by what he saw. ¬†A red eyed Matthew stood pointing the 9mm pistol at him. ¬†Cale almost felt he’d deserved this.

I just finished reading this recently published book that a friend wrote. ¬†I’m not just giving this book a 5 star rating because I know the guy. ¬†The stars are for how amazing this first installment of the Z Plan series was!

I personally love a good Zombie book. ¬†I think I’ve read enough of them that I could probably survive a Zombie¬†Apocalypse! ¬†My¬†interest¬†in Zombies is what drew me to this book.

The time is present, the main character, Cale, is stationed over seas as a soldier of the U.S. Army. ¬†Cale and his buddies learn of a virus that has begun to spread, but think nothing of it¬†because it’s pretty far away. ¬†This virus isn’t just any virus and has traveled alot quicker than anyone had expected. ¬†Their Army base soon becomes a war zone. ¬†As of now, everyone kind of knows what Zombies are, but¬†aren’t¬†Zombies a work of fiction? ¬†Cale and everyone else soon realize what they’re up against…true, walking, un-dead zombies.

Some escape from the terror with Cale. ¬†They have plans to find a boat and get back to the U.S. ¬†As of now, there is no military¬†according¬†to them, it’s every man for themselves. ¬†There are un-dead everywhere. Cale looses some friends along the way. ¬†Becoming¬†completely alone, when luck strikes him and he¬†stumbles¬†upon two young boys and a¬†yacht.¬†In the act of trying to save them and their supplies he becomes alone again and decides he still needs to get to land and back to his wife and daughter.

Among all this¬†chaos, he can only hope that his beloved wife and daughter are still alive and that is what is giving him hope. ¬†His boat begins to have¬†mechanical problems. ¬†Just when he’s about to give up hope, there is contact over the radio. ¬†The Egyptian Armed Forces have spotted his boat and are going to save him. There is still hope for Cale and hope that he will be united with his family once again. But who knows what could be lurking back in the states? ¬†Has the virus over-run home with the walking dead? ¬†I hope to find out in the next installment of the Z Plan Series!

The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice

We cannot admire his brute intervention, or his savage cruelty.  He is the enemy of all we hold sacred, and therefore he is our personal enemy, not our friend.  That he has again rescued an innocent victim from almost certain annihilation is, tragically, incidental.  He cannot be thanked for this any more than an erupting volcano or an earthquake can be thanked for whatever good may follow in its wake.  Speculation as to his personality, his ambitions, or even his motives must remain just that, speculation, and nothing more.  We celebrate what we can Рthat Stuart McIntyre is alive and safe.

This is a daring novel. ¬†I have read a many of Anne Rice’s books and I’d have to say, I truly loved every minute of this one!

The story takes place near the coast of North California, in a very grand mansion that has so much History in it’s walls, it¬†tantalizes¬†Reuben. ¬†Reuben is a young reporter for the Observer. ¬†He wasn’t well known until he started writing impressive articles for them. He was asked to help sell this mansion with his creative way of writing. ¬†Marchent, the owner of the mansion hired him to lure¬†potential¬†buyers to the place. ¬†While spending a few days there, getting inspired for the piece, he falls in love with the house, land and even for Marchent. Marchent is selling the house¬†because¬†her Uncle has been missing for several years now and she has no hope in him returning and would like to move on. Reuben cannot see anyone but himself in this house. He purchases the place.

One night during Reuben’s stay, there is a break in, Marchent is brutally killed…along with the intruders. Reuben thought he was a goner. ¬†He had been bit by some sort of animal. Later in the hospital he starts going through very strange changes, including rapid healing. His mom has tests done, only to find out each sample¬†disintegrates¬†before it can even be tested.

The change occurs. ¬†Reuben cannot fathom what has been done to him. ¬†He starts putting the pieces together with the history of Marchent’s family. ¬†Makes strange connections through old werewolf tales and books. ¬†He even¬†researches¬†old horror movies! ¬†Nothing can seem to stop him from hearing the cries of innocent people being harmed. He hunts prey in the ancient woods behind his new home. While sharing this mystery with a new woman named Laura. He came upon her home while in his wolfen form and she embraced him.

History comes back, un-aged and ready to embrace the future, to save Reuben from being put under a microscope of probing Russian doctors whose agenda is nothing near good and to renew himself in his old home. Forced under the media’s lights and being hunted by¬†authorities¬†for his savagery, Rueben embraces his “Wolf Gift”.

This book will have you thrown into a modern world of magic, secrets and alchemical knowledge.  This is a journey you will want to take while you watch man turn to wolf and history from the beginning of time come to life now, in our world.
