Review Blog Tour: Love In The Time of The Dead (Tera Shanley)

Love in the Time of the Dead
Laney Landry has been fighting Deads alongside her brother and friends for three years. But she has a secret. She's immune to Dead bites and has to find the right people to trust with the information. Her team rallies around her to find a doctor who can extract a vaccine from Laney which could fight the virus that ended the world.
Sean Daniels leads a colony that provides her team with much needed shelter and supplies. He is obviously interested in Laney. The question is whether he's only intrigued by her as a source for the possible vaccine, or for something more. Tests for the cure might push her body beyond what it can endure, and just as she faces a ghost from her past, her longtime teammate Derek Mitchell hints at an interest in more than just her Dead slaying abilities.
Two honorable and alluring men - one colossal decision to make. Despite historically bad taste in men, can she rise above the chaos of the apocalypse and choose the one who deserves her heart? The right choice could mean the difference between surviving...and living.

Title: Love in the Time of the Dead
Author: Tera Shanley
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Release Date: October 22nd, 2013

Born and raised in small town Texas, Tera Shanley grew up in books. Her cousin gifted her a signed copy of Beauty by Bill Wallace when she was young and that was it for her. So smitten was she with getting lost in a story, that while other eleven year olds her age were groaning at the accelerated reader program in school, she was racking up the points just for fun.
Balancing chronic book-wormyness is her devotion to the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, camping - her soul is happiest out of doors. And lucky for Tera, her family feels the same. She grew up a wild child helping her grandma ranch cattle, and has a hundred memories out in the wilderness which tend to influence her books.
When she's not eating chocolate, slinging rifles, or soaking up some sun, she's lost in a book, but these days it's more often one she's writing. From historic western romance, to paranormal romance, to apocalyptic (zombie) romance, the genre doesn't matter quite as much to her as the love story.
She currently lives with her husband and two young children, and is owned by two crazy mini-cujos.

I agreed to be a part of the blog tour for this book because the book's synopsis just sounded absolutely fascinating and I am all about a zombie book!! So this one seemed to be a perfect fit for me and once I started reading it...I knew I was right! I actually really liked this book! It had the perfect mix of zombies, suspense, and romance!!!

The main character, Laney, immediately grabbed my attention. She is a true survivor and the fate of the rest of the world depends on her survival. Laney knows that keeping herself alive in order to get to the nearest colony and help to discover a cure is the most important and crucial part of the worlds existence.

Laney discovered that she is immune to the virus that changes others into "Deads." When a dead bites her..she is not only immune but she causes the "Dead" to come back to life for a brief while and relive all of the horrifying moments of their last few memories before it kills them.

Laney and her crew includes her brother Jarren and two more friends, Guist and Marshall. Laney and her crew make it to a colony and from there begins their real journey. They face so many obstacles, fights, and heartache. I dont want to give away the important aspects of this book because that is what makes it so special so you will have to read it for yourself in order to discover the secrets it holds. I really loved this book and the ending was so perfect. I really like the author's writing style as well. She wrote a great zombie novel that had minimal gore and LOTS of story-telling. I loved it!!

(Also I absolutely loved the cover! The purple is beautiful and the girl walking barefooted into the woods is a perfect imitation of Laney.)
