Blog Tour: Steel Rose by @NighttoDawn1 #review

Horror / Sci-Fi
Date Published: February 2, 2013

Sometimes they come back. At least the Kryszka aliens do. Their leader captures humans and injects a chemical to turn them into zombies. Yeron escapes their underground colony to practice human medicine, but most people fear him. Alexis, his patient, is afraid, too…until his seductive attentions profoundly arouse her. He develops a drug to control her pain from disabling arthritis, but her weakness prohibits her from handling most weapons. The Kryszka soldiers and zombies who break into the hospital are hungry. So very hungry. How will she fight them?

What a creepy book cover, and boy does the writing and story line live up to it. At a time where Zombies are big, this was the perfect novel. If you are a fan of gore and guts and grit, this is definitely the novel for you! It is not for any one squeamish or who cant handle the darker more controversial scary situations. There is torture and things like that. All very well done from my perspective. It will leave you wanting more and keep you flipping pages furiously.
