wow, just wow!!!!!

All I can say is wow! Nothing is so terrible that it can’t get worse! This is the theme that runs through Viral Dawn. Casey, a high school student gets a lesson in this idea when an explosion unleashes a deadly virus into the atmosphere. Her life is on immediate lockdown separated from her family and fighting off zombies!!!! Yes, I said zombies. It will take some serious teamwork from the people she is locked up with to ward off the zombie horde and get to safety. Get ready for action, adventure and get ready to cry a little when things get worse for the group. I really enjoyed this story even though I am not usually a fan of zombie stories. Ms. Rankin’s storytelling held my interest and made me love the heroes.

“I would recommend this series to anyone who loves a good zombie book.” – Viral Storm: A Dystopian Zombie Apocalypse Thriller (Viral Series Book 2) by Jade Lazlow

“The sores forming with unholy speed on Harley’s arms and legs confirmed the infection was spreading. Its poison surged through her veins with such momentum that she could feel its sting in the current of her pulse. Unrelenting pain seared every cell, and she struggled to maintain focus, despite the fever raging in her blood.” – Viral Storm
Viral Storm continues the story of Casey Williams and her friends attempting to flee the country and expose the evil work of BioGenetics, creators of the virus that spawned the zombie apocalypse. Euthanizing her best friend, who’d been infected with the virus, was the most soul-crushing thing Casey could have imagined, but that was nothing compared to what happens next… Like the first book in the series, Viral Dawn, Viral Storm has gore, violence, and dark themes common in zombie apocalyptic fiction, but the book focuses more on the characters’ lives than other elements. The story centers on strong, young adult female characters as do similar books in female-centered dystopian fiction like The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent, and The Year of the Flood. Join Casey as her struggle for survival continues in Viral Storm.

Amazingly good series

The much-anticipated sequel to Viral Dawn is here! And it was sooo worth the wait! This is such an amazing series. I could see it being a tv series or movies, they are so well written. The characters are so well written that you get so invested in them and their stories.
I could not put this book down. I read it straight through in one sitting, it sucks you in and you have to know what’s going to happen next. Casey is such a strong character. She’s been put through the wringer but still manages to rise up and keep pushing through. I love that in this one you also get other characters POV.
I would recommend this series to anyone who loves a good zombie book. It’s labeled as YA but honestly, adults would love it too. Book 3 can not come soon enough!

Awesome!!

I call my self a zombie snob, I’ve read so many zombie stories it takes a lot to impress me but color me impressed. This series just keeps getting better and better. The storyline sucks you in and the characters are so real I found myself rooting for them. Casey has had to give mercy to her best friend Harley before she turns. Now she along with her remaining friends are looking to expose Biogenetics, creators of the virus. The blood and gore flow like water and death surrounds them as they try to do what’s right and show the world the evil that is Biogenetics. I couldn’t put this down and now I have to impatiently wait for book 3.

Great start to the series.
This was a really fun and fast read. It kept me hooked and not wanting to stop until the end. It does start off slow but the authors building a lot of backstories which is really nice. A lot of reviews are saying its too short but that really isn’t the problem. Its the first book in the series and it’s over 200 pages. The problem is you get to the end of this one and you want book 2 so you can know what happens next.
The character building in this story is amazing. You really get to know Casey and feel for her. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who’s a fan of zombie novels. YA or not its a great story. I cant wait to see where the rest of the series goes.

Enjoyable, well-crafted story that ramps up the tone of the series

I stumbled upon the first book in The Viral Series by Skyler Rankin a couple of months ago. Initially, I was going to pass because it seemed lumped in the YA category and I am not that young, nor an adult … at least according to everyone that knows me. However, with the limited options available in this post-apocalyptic, overrun by the undead world that we live in, I thought I should give it a go.
I’m glad I did.
The first book was a quick read for me because it quickly caught my interest and then held it through to the end. So much so that when the opportunity presented itself to read Viral Storm, book two in the Viral Series, I had to jump on it.
Much like the first, the characters and story quickly drew me in. And much like everything else in life, a change occurred. Good change, but definitely change.
While the first book touched on many themes universal to the zombie literature I’ve read, it did so in some original, relatively light and almost innocent ways.
Viral Storm continues in a similar way … until it doesn’t. Book two takes the story down a little darker and more graphic path, one that may catch some readers off guard. It may even be a little disturbing to some of the younger YA readers but really, compared to some other content I’ve read in the category it’s not too over the top. Just something to be aware of.
Very interesting story with characters that will draw you in, a writing style that makes you feel like you are there and an author willing and able to play with your imagination and emotions with finesse.
I can’t wait to see where we go with book 3!
