Down the Road

Review Copy Source: Publisher for blog tour

From his small apartment in Austin, Texas, George Zaragosa watches in awe as surreal reports of a bizarre plague flood the national news. Until today, his life as a local theater teacher was stable and ordinary, if overshadowed by the unsolved murder of his beautiful fiancĂ©e. Now, hearing how those who died from an unstoppable virus are coming back to life in growing numbers, George knows what he has to do: leave everything behind in the city and get home to San Uvalde, just down the road. 

It began in New York City, when the dead arose from the hospitals and morgues, attacking the living and pulling them into their growing hordes. State by state, the nation goes into lockdown, whole cities and towns fight for survival, and George must navigate military roadblocks, FEMA camps, and street thugs to make it home. But most of all, his journey down the road will require him to stave off the horrifying creatures hungering for his flesh. . . .

I got this book from the publisher for a blog tour that they were doing but the book didn't get here by the date of the blog tour and now I just dont have time to read it with the other books in my pile waiting to be reviewed. SO I'm looking for a guest reviewer to read and review it for me. Here is how it will work.

*This is open to U.S. residents only
*I will send my copy of DOWN THE ROAD (print copy) to you and it will then belong to you.

*You will be expected to review it within a week of receiving it.
*You will send me your review and I will post it as a guest review giving you full credit on my blog. You are also welcome to post it on your blog if you have one.
*Having your own blog is not required.
