With Love for Horror Books: Survive Another Day & Die Another Day by Baileigh Higgins - Book Reviews & Giveaway


Review by Anniek

During the first days of the apocalypse ordinary men and women are trying to understand what is happening. Going to the supermarket because they forgot something can be the last thing they've ever done. Nobody understands what the effect will be once they've been bitten. With innocent ignorance they all go home suspecting a full recovery from the wound. Little do they know, that because of them their loved ones will be fighting for their lives, trying to survive another day. Who has the strength and the luck to make it out alive?

Survive Another Day tells the background stories of the characters we got to know in the first book of the Dangerous Days series, Last Another Day. Some of the characters are instantly recognizable and some of them will be lesser known. I loved to read about the first days when the world they knew has ended forever. It feels more real learning about how some of them got infected and what their lives were like. These tragic events fortunately have survivors as well. The stories evolve around the following question, how will you keep going when everything you held dear has been taken away from you?

Survive Another Day contains eight chapters about different people who were confronted with the walking dead. Even though these are short stories, they tell a full tale and they all grabbed me immediately. Baileigh Higgins makes you feel the fear that her characters are feeling. I absolutely love it when I get lost in a story. Ever since I started Last Another Day I've been hooked on this series. I read Survive Another Day in one sitting and I started in the next book immediately.


Review by Anniek

After the biggest loss of his life Logan roams the country. He sleeps in his truck and is drunk every single day. The buzz of the alcohol keeps him numb and that's exactly the way he needs to be right now. Logan was part of a community, but he left the members behind. He's always been a loner and now he's gone back to his old ways. While he's driving through the streets he spots a big group of zombies. They're trying to reach someone who lies unconsciously on a roof. If the zombies are still trying to reach for her, that can only mean one thing, the girl on the roof is still alive. Will Logan get to her before the zombies do?

The other survivor's of Logan's community are in desperate need of medical supplies. With two women in the last stage of their pregnancies they have to be prepared. The only way to get these supplies is to raid the hospital. These are death traps and they have to carefully plan their trip. When they open up the wrong door by mistake the halls are filled with the walking dead. They barely make it out alive. A doctor and his bodyguard were trying to find a cure and they're devastated that they have to leave the lab. Can this doctor do the impossible and find a cure for the zombie virus?

After all they've been through it turns out that the walking dead are not the only threats the members of the community have to deal with. A nearby group of malicious survivors are on the hunt for more power. These men are evil and have no respect for other human beings. The community has done so much already to keep out the zombies, but they hadn't thought about how to keep out the living. They instantly have to come up with a plan or everything they have built could be destroyed. 

Logan's friends have lost so much and even after all the hurt and pain they still stand tall. I admired that in this group. I was hoping for them to come out as the winners without too many casualties. Die Another Day is an action-packed story about the survivors in a zombie apocalypse. Since I'm a big fan of the zombie genre I can't resist to pick one up if I think it will be a good one. I was already drawn in by the covers of these books and the stories don't disappoint. Baileigh Higgins kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole series. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough because I wanted to find out what would happen next. The Dangerous Days series is absolutely brilliant and is a definite must-read if you love to read zombie stories that will chill you to the bone.

Advice

If you love the post-apocalyptic and zombie genre the Dangerous Days series is a series you don't want to miss. The books can't be read as standalones and they have to be read in chronological order.
