Book Review – Shriekers: Episode One “The Scarecrow Man” by Jess Jay

“There’s no place that’s home…”

Jess Jay delivers a twist on the apocalypse/zombie novel and I am here for it! Her MC is an orphan, and doesn’t remember the world before the Green took over. In fact, Thea is sure she’s the last living person in the world, until she meets a little girl.

The Shriekers are a terrifying new take on the zombie, and Jay does a great job painting a picture of the monsters. I get chills thinking about vines coming from sightless eyes.

I wanted more background on everything: the Green, where Thea came from, what the Pasture actually is…maybe readers are limited by Thea’s knowledge, and what memories she has blocked out, but I could have used more details. Perhaps the story will unfold in the next episode.

If you’re looking for a new twist on the zombie story, this is for you!

I received a review copy for free from the author, and am leaving this review voluntarily.
