Sabrina's Word Wednesday - Determination; Pembroke Sinclair's formula to survive those zombies

Sabrina's Word Wednesday - Determination

This week, we will be highlighting a word that is a definite must for anyone wanting to survive and/or thrive after a zombie apocalypse. Determination.

Not only that, but we will be highlighting Pembroke Sinclair, an awesome zombie writer with a great set of zombie apocalypse books.

Determination is all over Sinclair's stories, Life After the Undead and Death to the Undead , mainly concentrated on a young girl named Krista. 

After a wave of zombieness takes over the United States, young Krista loses her family, but is determined not to follow in their fate. She escapes to a division, a wall separating the zombies from the more humid Eastern United States, and helps to build it. She is determined to protect as many people as she can, and along the way, she battles with not only the mindless undead, but also the tyrant families that now hold power over the remaining population.

In the second book, Krista and Quinn, the survivor she has fallen in love with, are caught between the zombies who want to eat them, the powerful ruling Families that want them captured, and other survivors who want them dead. Determined to make it and thrive, Krista and Quinn become perfect examples of zombie apocalypse survivors.

From the reviews on "Life After the Undead is a well-written story that represents a perfect blend of young adult fiction with a horror twist. Sinclair does an excellent job of fully developing both the plot and all of the characters involved in the main action of the novel, and she walks the fine line between too much blood and gore and just enough eloquently and with style. I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good adventure, regardless of their age. It was fun and exhilirating to get lost in the world of the undead as seen through the eyes of a capable and independent protagonist."

Definitely determination.
