Take a look at what some of the icons of zombie and horror fiction have to say about The Hungry:

The Hungry is a zombie thriller loaded with sex and smarts. A real nail-biter that brings a new weapon to bear in apocalyptic fiction: Hope. Highly recommended.
Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Dust & Decay and Dead of Night

If you’re craving an apocalyptic horror novel that’s not just wall-to-wall action but balls-to-the-wall intense, Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon have cooked up a real treat for you. I would say The Hungry will leave you totally satisfied, but that’s not true: Readers will be howling for more more more MORE just like the hordes of insatiable zombies rampaging through this book.
Steve Hockensmith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

You don't know what gut-churning page-flipping horror really is until you read this one. The Hungry combines the storytelling power of the big commercial thriller with many new twists on standard zombie fiction. A real winner.
Ed Gorman, author of The Dark Fantastic and Cage of Night

From the opening line, I loved it. I loved how complete it felt. It had so many great elements working for it - the small town setting; the two powerful main characters, as different as they could be, nearly every word between them charged with sexual tension; the satisfying stalemate as neither one gets exactly what they want, but rather what they need. A great story, and for a zombie fan like me, it pressed all the right buttons.
—From the Introduction by Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters

Adrenaline fueled ride

Certainly not a run of the mill zombie romp although I sure hope the heroine gets a change of clothes soon. I liked the story and I did like where it was headed however I don't understand why the zee ' s did what they did. Maybe book two will explain?

The writing's not great and the protagonist seems to spend most of her time complaining about men, which got a little repetitive.

I found this book to be very easy to read and believable. The characters were well written and thought out. I will be reading the next three and any others that come after.
