The Delight
Alexis is at it again, trying to survive and build a community of survivors. Runs out daily for supplies is just a way of life in the winter months of New Orleans. She’s holding strong, but just surviving, not living. The hero changes in this one and we still get to cut up zombies on a regular basis.


A slight spoiler for the first book if you haven’t read it, so you have been warned.



At the end of the first book, Blake takes off to rescue his ex-wife in Texas, leaving Alexis heartbroken and alone. She’s surviving but not really living life. Zach knows and keeps her busy on runs, security and running the compound they have secured. They have taken on more survivors and are hearing horror stories of a gang of men taking over a school and bartering women for their needs. It’s not really the most ideal time to be living, but living they are as they create their own society.

Zach like to watch Blake and Alexis together in the first book, but Blake made his choice and left. Zach’s no dummy and wants Alexis for his own. While he flirts and asks for a chance quite regularly, he never pushes Alexis too hard. They live on S-Island (Survivor Island) in a house together, but on separate levels. While Alexis and Zach fall in love, it wasn’t an instant falling into bed when Blake left. It took months. So don’t be thinking Alexis is a slut. Blake told her to move on, and not she has.

It’s about six months since the zombie out break happened and supplies are scarce. The group is having to go farther and farther to get what they need. Everyone has a job, no one gets to slack off.

Boom! Blake comes back with his ex, her sister and other survivors they found along the way and now the group has gotten bigger. Let’s not forget that Blake and Alexis were in love and that feeling doesn’t go away instantly. So the love triangle gets complicated, but let’s throw in Blake’s ex who is a lazy, drama whore. Yeah, I said it, bitch. She wants to be queen of the island, never work and think she is the shit that doesn’t smell.

The story ends in a cliff-hanger worse than the first book. I have to wait till September to get the next installment? Who do I have to cut to get it earlier, because damn I don’t do well waiting to find out what happens! So you will see me stalking Gillian Zane’s (and yes, I know who she really is under the pseudo name) websites, Amazon page and Goodreads to get me some more Alexis time!


About Gillian Zane

Gillian Zane is the author of the NOLA Zombie series. Zane is the pen name of a prominent blogger in the publishing industry, which will remain a mystery unless you Google it. Since she can remember her goal has been to become Master of the Universe and has decided to focus first on the literary world. Things are progressing nicely.
Zane has been a freelance writer for the last ten years and has published a few non-fiction works, none of which was very exciting. Zombies are much more exciting and a way for her to combine her two current obsessions, hot boys with guns and Doomsday Prepping. When she isn’t stockpiling MREs (Meal’s Ready to Eat) or researching how to build a cistern on a budget, she’s taking care of her little family and exploring the city that she loves, New Orleans.

  • Well that’s a messy situation with all that is going on. Cliffhangers, grrrr!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Yep, cliffhanger of a massive side! September…why did I start this….I should have waited until they were all out.

  • Oh the blarmy ex! Which is why I am not friends with any of mine! hahaha! Happy weekend, girlies!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Thanks Sweetie! Have a great weekend too!

  • oh I hate those cliffhangers…I avoid them at all costs unless I have all that books in my hands. I like my good and happy endings.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I wish I had thought about a cliffhanger. Just a few more weeks!

  • Didn’t read this review because I haven’t read book one, but I really want to try this series. Look at the comments Cliffhangers, grrrr!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Read it! They are both pretty short, but both end with cliffhangers. The first isn’t so big, but the second totally is!

  • You really make me curious about this series with these reviews, although I am still not sure whether I want to read it. It’s nice that it takes time for her to fall in love with Zach and this sounds like a messed up love triangle indeed, especially whith Blake returning with his ex. Those cliffhanger endings can be really nasty, but I kinda like them as well when done right. Great review!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Totally messed up love triangle. I didn’t think I would like zombie themed stories, but they have been pretty good lately. Thanks!

  • This has been making its way around the sphere..the cliffie sounds brutal, but I am curious.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Oh, it was pretty good and now I want the last story for my HEA.
