As a child, Stephen worked out his plans for the “inevitable” zombie apocalypse with his friend Jake. Now he is all grown up with a real job and real responsibilities. His spare time is now taken up online – surfing, blogging and facebooking.
Then the mysterious sickness hits San Antonio and people start dying by the thousands. He stops by his neighborhood bar after a tragically brief day at the office. A little flirting with the hot bartender, then home alone to blog.
As he begins to realize from the news and Internet traffic that the dead are rising, his childhood preparations come rushing to the forefront of his mind. And the number one rule was always, “Chivalry will get you killed!”
His conviction to this rule is immediately tested when he gets a call for help from the bartender. Chivalry – and hormones – wins out as he sets out to rescue the object of his desires. Before the electric grid goes down, he receives an internet plea for help from his childhood friend Jake in Houston. He again decides that his duty is most important in this situation.
He sets off on the 200 mile journey where the zombies may not be the worst he has to contend with. His preparation didn’t include dealing with human monsters.
Chivalry is a lost art in our world and in the world where the undead are up and traipsing about feasting on flesh it’s something much needed, yet something that can just as easily get one killed. In Chivalry is Undead, Stephen knows the rules. He and his friend Jake have a zombie survival plan. They have stocked up on supplies and have a plan should the undead decide to join us for a bite. He, also, knows that chivalry will cause him killed. So what does he wind up doing? Yep, saving the girl, showing generosity to strangers and risking his life to get his friend Jake and Jake’s family to a safer location.
Chivalry is Undeaddoes not give us a list of the do’s and don’t of the zombie apocalypse, but it does give us cause to consider how our choices would affect us. The characters are well written and pretty believable considering the environment in which they reside. Filled with intense action, good choices, bad choices, life and death Chivalry is Undeadkept me on the edge of my seat wondering just how far Stephen will go to maintain his chivalrous nature before it gets him or someone he loves killed.
