I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
There was more than one time while reading The Confessions of Sylva Slasher that I wished it was in graphic novel format. The descriptions were so vivid, so interesting, I desperately wanted to see them from the author's perspective.
I love a good horror book, and lately zombie novels have been catching my eye. There's just something about a slashing through a sea of zombies that I find inordinately satisfying. This novel is full of action, imagination, and fascinating characters.
Sylva is great-- definitely what I like in a heroine: witty, sassy, tough with awesome battle moves. In fact all of the characters are quite interesting and well-developed. Sylva raises zombies for a living-- dead loved ones for a final goodbye, that sort of thing. I think Mr. Hall did a great job creating a unique voice for Slyva. Her distinct personality really shines through on every page.
Full of twists, turns, and excitement, sometimes I couldn't seem to turn the pages fast enough. I can't really go into more detail about the plot without spoilers, so let's leave it at this: If you like nonstop zombie goodness with an intriguing story line and a kickass heroine, look no further than The Confessions of Slyva Slasher.
