Book Review: Dead Meat by Nick Clausen

Thank you to Macabre Tours for accepting me to review Dead Meat: Day 1 by Nick Clausen.

Blurb

I’m trapped in a basement. There’s a zombie outside the door. I have no cellphone coverage. No way out.

And it’s only noon.

Besides, my girlfriend, who’s trapped in here with me, got a scratch on her arm from the zombie outside. She’s spiking a fever and will soon die, only to rise again. If I haven’t died from thirst by then, my luck will really run out.

I don’t know if this is the end of the world or what. I only know we were delivering the newspaper when this thing happened. If I make it out of here alive, will the world have ended? Or is this only the beginning? Is there even a chance to stop it?

This is Dead Meat: Day 1 – the end of the world, one day at a time.

Review

After previously reading Dreamland I jumped at the chance to review book one in the Dead Meat series. I really enjoyed this quick read. It was full of tension and dark comedy. It kept me on my tours and despite it’s small size it was full of frightful moments. The one thing I enjoyed about this book was that it explained how the zombies came to be. It was wonderful read and a fantastic start to what is no doubt going to be a great series (or novella). I look forward to jumping into Day Two.

5/5

Authors Bio

I write chilling horror and apocalyptic tales so that I don’t need to work a real job. I grew up reading Stephen King and still haven’t fully recovered. My books have been published in four different languages, and I’m currently working on ending the world in my zombie series Dead Meat.

I was born in a small country far, far away where people eat a lot of rye bread and are generally suspicious of success. I learned English thanks to Netflix and audiobooks. Originally, I wrote in my native tongue, but I switched to English in 2018 to reach more readers.

I married my public-school sweetheart and we recently had a son who looks so much like me I fear he’ll never get a date, the poor guy. My stories are fast-paced and thrilling and hopefully never boring. You should check them out, if you haven’t already.

I put out at least four or five books a year. You can join my readers club to be kept in the loop when I have a new release. If you’re not ready to take our relationship to that level of intimacy, check out the options below.
