REVIEW: Love & Decay, Episode #3 by Rachel Higginson

Love and Decay, Episode Three


Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.
On the heels of escaping Gary and his camp of militia, Reagan, Haley and the Parker brothers are traveling south without a car and not much in the way of weapons. Conditions are bleak, but they have each other and they have hope.
When an unexpected thunderstorm hits and they are exposed on the open road, the group must fine shelter in an abandoned barn. The structure is crumbling and dirty but they are able to escape the worst of the storm.
Hoping to make it through the blustery night, they make camp and hope for the best.
However, when a horde of Zombies follows them, they realize how precarious their temporary lodging is and how unlikely it is they will survive the night.
Now they must find a way to fight off the aggressive Feeders while still keeping everyone alive. They are low on ammo, fighting blind in the dark and struggling against the elements.
Reagan has come to care for this group too much to lose someone now. But staying alive until sunrise feels like the hardest task yet. She’s used to danger, killing and surviving; but nowadays she’s not as concerned with her own life as she is with those that surround her. Protecting those she loves comes with great cost, but it’s a fight she’s desperate to win.
Love and Decay, Episode Three, is the third in a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.

This story takes place over multiple episodes, with a release date every two weeks. Approximately 20,000 words.


"The depth of emotion they felt for each other was both heartbreaking and life-changing. I wanted that kind of love someday. I wanted to know the intimidate complexity of those feelings- the ferocity of something so all encompassing. I wanted to know love in this world of decay. Maybe not today, but some day."

In Episode 3 of Love & Decay Reagan, Haley and the Parker family are exhausted, filthy and unprepared for what's next on their adventure. When they run into an army of Zombies they are faced with a saddening realization. The further South they go, the stronger and smarter the Zombies are. They are organzing and planning which makes them even more lethal. When a group of them attacks the group it is by strike of luck that they escape, mostly unscathed. Their adventure is changing in many ways...some good and some bad.

The good you ask?

In this episode Rachel gives us a glimpse into the Parker's past. While we learned about their parents I have to admit that I had a tear or two fall. To finally learn about what they went through post Zombie Apocalypse and the sad decision they have to make was so heart wrenching. Rachel does not disappoint with getting to her readers hearts. Be prepared for all to revealed.

And of course the Hendrix and Reagan scenes make for a wonderful read as well! I don't know if Hendrix can make us swoon any more than what he did in this book. He is just incredible in this episode as he is in the rest. And although Reagan is hesitant about LOVE in their world she can't ignore those feelings that are bubbling in her and the way Hendrix makes her feel safe. The chemistry between these two is a building fire in a volcano that will eventually erupt! :) I hope in a good way!

I look forward to finding out what's next for everyone!

Seriously what are you waiting for? Pick this up! And if you haven't read Love & Decay at all, shame on you but I will forgive you when you do decide to pick it up! :-)

BUY this. READ it. LOVE it.
