11/09/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Hello everyone and welcome back! I have a lot of writing to do and very little time to do it in today, so I wanted to get right to the normal review for everyone to enjoy!

Today I bring you 'Zombie Kitten' by Dawn Harshaw. The world ended a long time ago and now Vampires are in control of what's left of major cities. They're not your normal vicious species, something about watching the world end changed them. Now, though they are still predatory, they are forced to watch over their own, and they've learned they're not the only things to be feared.

Elise has been dealing with a bully in school for far too long, and she's finally decided to put an end to it. She learns of where he's been hiding to discovered he's been torturing small animals and infecting them with some kind of zombism. One he has infected is a small kitten, which she decides is the last straw. The question is will the young vampire stand up to her bully or will she be forced to run even more now.

I picked this story because there is pretty much an epidemic of bullying in the world right now. It's not that I suggest the main character's method is the best one, but honestly anyone finding the courage to stand up to someone that's hurting them is a good read. No one deserves to be hurt by someone else, and Elise is a good example of someone finding what motivates them to stop their own pain and help someone else in return.

'Zombie Kitten' is available for free on Smashwords, and I recommend picking it up for anyone who wants to read about a strong girl who just wants to do the right thing. She knows what's right and wrong and she wants to help the kitten, even though zombies aren't really seen as anything good to a vampire's eyes.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and checking out the review today. My NaNoWriMo progress is still going strong. I'm hoping to be at the halfway mark by Saturday (but we'll also hope for a more responsible day and say Sunday or Monday too) and then it will be onto the home stretch. I'll be back on Wednesday though, Monday is a holiday here in the states and I super need that day off. Thanks again and have a good weekend.
