Fabulous Horror Freebie - The Darkest Days by R.L. Blalock - Book Review

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek
Fight or Die? I'm going to fight. What's your choice?

Wyatt is halfway through his twelve-hour shift. He often phones his wife, just to let her know that he's safe and to say that he loves her. Work has been chaotic all morning. There are more incoming calls than usual. Wyatt is on his way to check up on a call when the dispatcher urges all officers to return to the station. While it's against his nature Wyatt drops his investigations and jumps into his car. Wyatt never expected to be fighting for his life at a day that started in such a normal way. Will he be able to get to safety in time and what will happen to his wife and young son?

Wyatt is a police officer and a loving father and husband. He takes his job very seriously and when he realizes how urgent the situation is he tries to get as much people as possible inside the walls of the police station, not knowing that the already injured people are a threat as well. When Olivia, a young mother who's trying to get to safety as well, comes through on the walkie talkie Wyatt discovers what's going on outside. Wyatt has to stay strong for the people around him and I loved the way he handles difficult situations. He does what needs to be done, even though this sometimes may be hard. Wyatt is someone I would love to have on my side when the end of the world as we know it would come. 

The Darkest Days is a gripping story about surviving in a changed world. Now that the world no longer belongs to the humans, people have to find a way to stay alive. I have been hooked on the Death & Decay series ever since I read Devour. R.L. Blalock always manages to shock me with her thrilling and terrifying stories. The Darkest Days made me feel scared, it made me cry and it filled me with hope for the survivors. The main characters feel like real people and this makes the story even more creepy. I absolutely love this series and I can't wait to start reading the second book, Divided.


The Darkest Days shows you how people are struggling to stay safe in a zombie infested world. If you're in for a fast-paced, thrilling and terrifying zombie story, then this is a series you don't want to miss.
