Zindie Review- Head Shots: Scenes from the Zombie Apocalypse

After I finished the last page of Head Shots: Scenes from the Zombie Apocalypse, I said aloud, “Why did it have to end?” This extremely short story by Alex Severin hooked me in within the first few paragraphs. What’s not to like about a sweet cheerleader gone badass zombie-killer?

As indicated in the title, Severin’s story consists of a string of scenes from the apocalypse. Most are from the perspective of the main cheerleader character named Vic, while others offer a unique and insightful viewpoint from other characters. Considering the length of this piece, I can’t go into too much detail on the plot without giving most of the story away. Instead I’d like to focus on why I enjoyed it so much.

For such a tiny story (and I don’t mean that comment to be negative!) Severin managed to pack it to the brim with emotions and thoughts from Vic that piques your interest immediately. Not to mention the writing style is vivid and gruesome. At every turn there are alluring hints about the history of characters and the origin of the zombie virus. In a way, the whole story was a big teaser…

Severin crafted what I believe is a well executed novel preview. While reading it you’ll want more, no…need more. The scenes fly through your head as a movie preview does, enticing you beyond imagine. That’s sort of the problem with this story. It’s honest to goodness too short to stand alone. It only makes sense to write a novel and expand this thing. Fortunately, Severin is doing just that.
Hmmm… I hope this vague review has encouraged you to buy this 99 cent

Kindle item, or at least get the preview!
