Dave’s eyes widened as he finally saw what remained of his wife. The worst part – the part that would keep him awake, screaming her name – was her eye plastered to her cheek in crusted coagulated blood. Painfully lifting his head up, he saw parts of Janet’s body littering the back lawn, sticking out of the ground like twisted creeping plants.


When Calloway Foster woke up that morning, he never expected it to be a deathblow to life on earth. Nothing can prepare him for one of the world’s most loved species to turn into the undead. Four-legged zombies now run rampant-hungry and intelligent, they are merciless to those still struggling to survive. Follow Cal on a turbulent journey filled with horrific loss, new love, and unbelievably terrifying events. Will he find his twin brother in time? Can he keep his family safe? A terrifying surprise twist will test the survivors to the brink of humanity’s very existence.

Omg where the hell do I start?
Anyone who knows me will know that I love a good zombie film/book and when the opportunity rose for me to be part of Ellie’s tour and to take part in reviewing for her, I jumped at the change.
Hounded was one ‘hell’ of a ride. Zombie Dogs? Why not? I also love the ending and one that I know will grow bigger in the second book.
Ellie got me from the first page, from the faithful pet to a hideous and dangerous animal. I grew to love and hate the characters and I would find myself groaning if someone went off on their own. For goodness sake don’t they realise you should never split up? I know, I know, it’s only a book but….
I finished reading Hounded at 12.45am Thursday morning, BUT I just had to find out what would happen to Calloway and his family, which I can tell you, it is pretty scary what the next book is going to be like.
As an author, Ellie is one hell of a writer, she will take you on a roller-coaster ride and one that you won’t want to get off.
I was very lucky to be given both books so coming soon will be my review of Hounded 2.
If you get a chance to read and you are a big fan of zombies then this is the book for you.

Can’t wait to find out more about Ellie and her books.

.0 out of 5 starsGreat Take on a Zombie Apocalypse

A virus is starting to go around that is turning dogs into zombies. These dogs have an insatiable taste for human flesh. Then the virus gets transferred to humans and starts putting them into comas. As everything breaks down, we follow several people as they navigate this new world.

This is a horror story at its finest. You don’t normally see zombie creatures so thinking that man’s best friend could turn into a zombie was a great idea. Just the simple thought of when does your dog stop being sick and need to be put down is hard under normal circumstances. But in this case if you don’t put them down you become lunch.

Then the virus gets transferred to humans putting them into comas. Of course everything is going to break down as people panic with the dawning apocalypse. We follow along as people are trying to get to their loved ones but find themselves in danger from dogs and other humans alike.

This is a great horror story. I love how you could follow the progression of the virus which you don’t normally get. I loved the blood and gore, very bloody and very realistic. You will have front row seats to mauling’s and the evil that one person does to another.

This is a great story. If you like zombies this is a fresh take on them and one book that you need to check out. It does end on a cliff hanger so be sure to have the second book handy.

I received Hounded from Silver Dagger Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
