Title: Massacre at Lonesome Ridge
Author: Samantha Warren
Published: March 11, 2014
Genres: Horror, Western
Massacre at Lonesome Ridge was an enjoyable read. I was fascinated by the origin of the zombie virus. While many zombie novels don't acknowledge the cause, Warren goes out of her way to not only create a unique cause, but to blend that into the landscape and lives of her characters.
The main characters are very well rounded, and I enjoyed getting to know them--including the characters I didn't care for. However, most of the secondary characters need some development. This novel is well-paced, and I like that it is a full story, all the way to the satisfying ending.
My biggest regret is that this novel wasn't better edited. I marked a good number of grammatical errors, incorrect capitalization, and missing punctuation. It also had some inconsistencies that need to be corrected. These issues came together to be quite distracting.
