Cure by Belinda Frisch

Cure (Strandville Zombie Series #1) by Belinda Frisch
Year Published: 2012

208 pages

This is the first book in the Strandville Zombies series.

I got this book for free from Amazon.

Miranda and Scott are finalizing their divorce, nothing has been the same since they lost their baby girl Rosalie. Although they both love each other, life is just not working out.
So Miranda decides to take a job in another town to try to start fresh and forget Scott.
When she reaches the Nixon center things don't seem right, she is asked to have tests and read manuals that no other employee had to do.
Zach is a new security guard just employed in the center, his wife Allison is a cancer patient and Dr. Nixon is trying to find a cure for her. So Zach worked there to be close to her.
There are a number of girls in the center that have been kept against their will and tests have been done on them, they are basically used as an incubation tool for Dr. Nixon's experiment to cure cancer.
If I go into more detail I might spoil the story so I'll stop here.

When I started the book it was like a roller coaster that you can't put down.. I was sure it was a 5 star book!
I liked the story and the writing it was fast paced with a lot of excitement.
Then it started to spiral down. Some conversations and reactions were a bit off, too many characters that I really lost count and lost interest in. that lost the first star.
Maybe if it was a movie it would have been OK.
Billy's infection was illogical. It took him ages to transform even without the shots, although the others transformed in a faster time frame. They got infected and almost immediately started to try biting someone.
Some editing is needed for the book to get rid of some of the errors.
The ending was abrupt and left it hanging which shows there is a need for a sequel. I didn't like that, for me that lost the second star.
I might consider the second book but not anytime soon. I kinda lost interest to see what happens to the heroins.
