Review: Unfed by Kirsty McKay

Unfed by Kirsty McKay
Publisher: Chicken House
Release Date: August 27, 2013
Book Format: ARC
Number of Pages: 288
Synopsis: Fresh meat! From a hospital of horrors to a runaway zombie train, it's an all-new onslaught of the slavering undead in the sequel to Kirsty McKay's killer debut!

Just when you think you're out...it's the morning after the night of the return of the living dead. Or something like that. After running/bus-driving/snowboarding for her life alongside rebel Smitty, geeky Pete, and popular Alice, Bobby thought she'd found the antidote to the Carrot Man Veggie Juice that had turned the rest of their classmates into zombies. When Smitty (mmm...nom, nom) got chomped, Bobby pumped a syringe full of it into him herself.

But now Bobby's a prisoner in some hospital of horrors, with no clue how she got there. And Smitty is missing. What if he isn't cured after all? Bobby knows she's got to find him, even if it means facing Scotland's hungry hordes -- plus Alice's buckets of snark -- again. And this time, zombies aren't the only evil stressing her out. The brain-dead are bad enough, but how can Bobby stop the big pharma business behind the epidemic? Especially when her own mom works for the company?

My Review:
I received Unfed by Kirsty McKay from the publisher, and this is my honest review.

Unfed is the fast paced crazy sequel to Undead by Kirsty McKay. These books are about  a group of students who are forced to put up with zombies who happen to be all over the place. They have to rely on each other and keep on their feet to stay alive.

The book starts off with out main character Robert A.K.A. Bobby who wakes up in a strange place. Turns out she is in a “safe” hospital where she will be well taken care of. She soon finds out that this is not the case and she’s off to find her friends. I like Bobby’s character because she is very brave. I mean come on she goes through a good chunk of the book in just her underwear, how is that not brave?

Along the way she meets up with Alice the famous “mean girl” from the first book. You’d think that all this craziness would mellow a girl like Alice out but no she’s just as (excuse my french) bitchy as before but thats okay because every book needs an annoying mean girl right? Next up the girls are reunited with Pete and a new character Russ. Pete is still as nerdy as before, his character is very important to the story because without him they wouldn’t have figured out a lot of the things they needed to survive. Now Russ in the beginning it seemed like he liked Alice so I was like cool maybe she’ll loosen up a bit. But then he started getting friendlier to Bobby as well. (Now that I’ve finished the book I understand why) But because of this I was not too trusting with Russ throughout the book for pretty good reasons.

Nevertheless these three work well together to find their way to the lovely Smitty, whom I missed so so much! He made me smile so much with all his quirky remarks it was awesome! Anyways you can tell how much I love this character just by the little rant above.

Zombies are such an awesome topic to write a book about because theres no room for bland boringness. This whole book was action packed and very fast paced. There was never a dull moment. Especially when Smitty was involved! With the end I’m thinking there is going to be a third book, Let me rephrase that I’m hoping there is going to be a third book because I’m too in love with the characters to let go.
