Review: Survivor Roundup – Angela Scott
Since discovering that she can withstand the zombie’s bite, and still survive, Red’s life has never been ordinary. John Gatherum has placed a price on her head, and he’ll stop at nothing until she’s in his grasp once more. She’s gone to great length’s to make sure he never lays another hand on her, but she knows time is running out.
Her new husband, and family mean everything to her. She’s promised herself to protect them, at all costs. They’re all she has left, aside from her brother, Davis. Their survival is a must, if they’re to get to the bottom of things, once and for all. Yet she can’t help but to wonder what the changes the plague has wrought on her body will mean in the long run.
Hunkering down in a fort they’ve come across for the time being, Red and her beloved family have had to deal with a lot of changes much too soon. The undead have surrounded their home, and more keep coming every day. Their stocks dwindle by the day, and she’s no longer sure whether they’ll survive the winter. She knows she’ll need to do something soon, but the thought of leaving her family to fend for themselves eats her deep inside.
When word of a cure reaches her ears, she soon realizes that she’s been given the very opportunity to deal with John. The compound is supposed to keep the infected out, and ensure that people live a peaceful life. Yet appearances are deceiving, and things are not what John wants people to believe. With no other choice but to deliver herself into his hands, Red vows to put a stop to his wretched plans, and save herself and those she loves in the process.
This was another great addition to this series. Picking up where it leaves off, we’re re-immersed in Red’s world. We get to see her deal with her feelings for Trace, and her insecurities when it comes to what she’s become. She’s presented with several tough choices to make, choices she’s not sure she’ll be able to withstand. But through it all, we get to see her come out on top as she battles to save her beloved family, and restore humanity’s faith once more. So can’t wait for part three of the series!

Red always knew she would have to face the man who nearly destroyed her. She just didn’t figure it would happen so soon . . .
With the plague sweeping across the nation, destroying many and turning others into walking corpses, survivors head West in search of a chosen land, a place designed to keep the infected out, while sealing survivors inside. In theory, the idea seems the only way to keep humanity alive. In practice, it doesn’t matter whether a person is on the inside or the out—there is no humanity.
. . . And even though John Gatherum hunted her down and instigated their reunion, Red’s no longer the passive girl he once manipulated. This time, she has a hidden agenda of her own.
Kill him. Save her family. Save herself.
About The Author:
I hear voices. Tiny fictional people sit on my shoulders and whisper their stories in my ear. Instead of medicating myself, I decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. I’m not crazy. I’m an author. For the most part, I write contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, I found myself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West—and loving it. My zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, I wouldn’t suggest it.
I live on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. I graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. I can’t spell, and grammar is my arch nemesis. But they gave me the degree, and there are no take backs.
As a child, I never sucked on a pacifier; I chewed on a pencil. I’ve been writing that long. It has only been the past few years that I’ve pursued it professionally, forged relationships with other like-minded individuals, and determined to make a career out of it.
You can find me at my website, where I blog obsessively about my writing process and post updates on my current works. I’m also on Twitter and Facebook, but be forewarned, I tweet and post more than a normal person.
