THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED
Kidnapped by a vampire, epically farted on by a pug and dragged through the pits of Hell. Welcome to Eve Eden’s world in the small and strange town of Twin Forest.
Eve has goals. She has dreams and ambitions that don’t involve staying in this weird, podunk town. When supernatural forces collide and drop her into the heart of England, she’s not exactly pleased. When Eve said she wanted to get the heck out of dodge, she didn’t mean getting transported into a torture chamber inside the dungeon of an actual castle.
Damned souls rising from the depths of Hell. Her body’s sudden ability to heal quickly from wounds. Resisting her inexplicable attraction to a vampire who’s been sent to kill her. Can life get any worse for Eve? Apparently it can, because just around the corner at Twin Forest’s cemetery…
waits the zombie horde.
No book trailer, so here’s a great song!

I wasn’t sure what to expect while reading Eve Eden vs. The Zombie Horde. At certain points in the novel, I would be drifting off into my own thoughts and then the next moment I would be racing to figure out what happens next! I know that for some, those types of novels is the best kind and if you are the “some” I previously spoke of, then this novel is most likely for you.
From the start of the novel, when our main character, Eve Eden, is inside of a helicopter with her best friend Kimi, I loved the way I could easily imagine Eve freaking out because of being meters upon meters above the ground and knew that from that point on I would like the novel. Especially when author Suz Korb tossed us into the supernatural area of the novel when Kimi suggests doing a “spell” moments after Eve receives her golden artifact necklace.  From that point on (after getting her necklace I mean) things begin to have major measures of… ridiculousness. Soon Eve’s locker goes missing, her necklace becomes an omen of danger and she ends up meeting the very creepy Vampire Boy who I just found disturbing.
I know that some of you would be wondering: “Why would a Vampire be creepy? Aren’t they totally hot and sparkly?” (Or something along those lines).  Honestly, I think the same thing as you. Minus the sparkling part. The only reason why this vamp was a total creep and turnoff to me personally was because of how he was so disturbingly introduced by feeding and feeding on Eve Eden. And then he ends up doing something very romantic afterwards. If that’s not creepy I don’t know what is anymore!
After her encounter with the vampire and after the cute little pug, Thunderbug, saves Eve’s sorry butt, things began to rocket sky high *thumbs up*.  Not only do Eve and Bubbles (yes her name is Bubbles, there’s also a character named Crystal Ball) encounter hulking abominations that end up throwing rocks at them, but they soon encounter bad guys like Eugene and the vicar.  One of my few issues with the novel was that it took so long for the story to reach the climax and introduce us to the Zombie Horde portion of the novel. For most of it I was just thinking of the novel as Eve Eden but once the zombies got included my thirst for some undead introduction was sated.
I personally found the novel amusing and mysterious. Mysterious mainly because of Lucy, the woman dressed in red who wants Eve’s necklace for reasons unknown. Not to mention the mystery of why Eve’s hair turns snow white. The best part is that the novel ends on a frightening note leaving you wondering what exactly happens next…
An excerpt from Eve Eden vs. the Zombie Horde 
starring Thunderbug: the epic farting pug

After everything I’ve seen. After everything I’ve been subjected to over the past… however many days, this has got to be the most confounding experience of all.


As Nathan’s lips gently (gently!) touch my own, my face burns. My eyes start to water and I don’t have a clue what I should do. So I just shut my heavy lids.


I’ve never been kissed.


Least of all by a blood-sucking vampire!


I’m so panicked and confused my brain wanders off to the random thought of dogs. In fact, I can actually hear a dog barking in my imagination right now.


Nathan pulls away from me.


There’s a rush of air between our faces now, it immediately cools my cheeks.


“Bark! Bark! Bark!”


Bark, bark, bark?


“Where did that dog come from?” Nathan says.


My eyes fly open. I whip my head around to see none other than Thunderbug bounding towards us on his little pug paws.


“That pup belongs to Bubbles!” I say with a smile. I’ve never been more happy to see someone else’s dog in my entire life.


Turning my whole body toward the racing pug, I go down on one knee and reach my arms forward. I’m ready to catch him. At the rate he’s running though, he might succeed in knocking me back.


Thunderbug leaps over a stalagmite on the floor of the cave. Then he jumps over an even higher one. 


Impossibly, the flat faced little scamp next flies over a ten foot stalagmite. He heads toward me, jumps in an arch over my head and I watch as if in slow motion as he crashes into Nathan’s chest.


If I expected the pug to bounce off and crash to the floor, I’d be wrong.


Thunderbug totally takes Nathan down.


I barely have time to register the look of surprise on his face, before he vanishes. What’s more is, Thunderbug disappears too.


No wait! Nathan’s over there, in the far corner of the cave. There’s Thunderbug too! How is it possible for a doggy to move as fast as a vampire? I don’t know, but Thunderbug is doing so.


Actually, the pug is now flashing around the room in locations different to where Nathan is appearing. During the last flash of re-appearance, Nathan blinks into the place just behind Thunderbug’s rear end.


Uh oh…


Yep. Thunderbug, lets out a gaseous explosion from his butt that is so epic, I swear I see a mushroom-cloud blast into Nathan.


He goes down. The vampire has just been farted into submission by a super flatulent pug.
