Daring You to Read is hosted every week by Tynga over at Tynga's Reviews.
This week I'm daring you to read Humanity Scar: Last Words (Journal One) by Monique Doucette (was released in March for Kindle, is being re-released in paperback!).
Meet Kathryn (Kat) Lacey: a survivor, believer, leader, and slayer of zombies. Faced with overwhelming danger, she tells her story as she fights to stay alive. Her adventure takes place during the tumultuous time following the outbreak of a deadly virus that reanimates its victims. However, there is more to tell within the pages of her journal than a simple account of ravenous corpses.
After everything has been stripped raw, what is left at the core of her existence? What remains when the flesh is torn away? Can it really be boiled down to good and evil, life and death?
Perhaps there is more to the story, something hidden beneath the scar tissue of the human race. I invite you to share this journey with Kat, who is just like you and I: she fights, cries, makes mistakes, and celebrates victories.
This is not your average zombie story. This is a first person account of a survivor battling against all odds. Kat is a woman who is discovering what she is made of and what she truly believes in. She fights to save what is precious to her and protects what she holds dear. This is a story about choosing to become a hero and not looking back.
That's right. Zombies. Like the one over to the right of the page here. (If you all watch The Walking Dead you know who that is ;-) And if you know anything about me, you know how much I love Daryl!)
Anyways, this story falls along the same lines as that television show up there. Zombies aren't boyfriend material. They're not "people" with dreams and aspirations anymore. They don't have hopes for the future. They are mindless shells of what used to be people. And they aren't just partial to brains. They'll take any piece of you. It's an honest to goodness zombie apocalypse. And Kat is struggling to survive through it.
If you want to get an up close and personal look at the world after the zombie apocalypse, you can go to the Humanity Scar website and check it out. It's an online RPG where you post as a survivor yourself. If you're not sure whether or not you want to BE a survivor yet, you can also just sit back and read as an observer of the forum. Get a feel for it. It's a lot of fun and it's really easy to do.
So that's it. I dare you to read it.
