Odium III, the latest installment in Claire C Riley’s bestselling zombie series!

5 STARS*****

It’s hard to give an in-depth review of this book without spoiling some phenomenal and twisty happenings within- not that established fans should be surprised by now. Riley has an innate (almost infuriating) ability to make us (her fans & readers) fall in love and like with her characters and then face-punch us like a well-worn heavy bag in a testosterone-riddled ghetto gym. You’d think we’d be pissed; that we’d wave ‘adios’ to Riley, unable to take one more instance of ‘what the f**k just happened?’

Right. Like that’s going to happen.

Because the truth is… well, we live for that s***t.

Let me just say these few things- Nina is in an even darker place- emotionally & physically. Nova is still the zombie-killing ninja we know and love, but a hint of a softer side peeks out and makes us go ‘awww, I totes like her more now’. Crazy Pants is a person (that needs a bath and some memory juice). Mikey’s still sexy (although we don’t see him as much, boo). Some characters that were ever-present in books 1 & 2 play supporting roles instead of being front-and-center, but that doesn’t mean they’re safe. And the questions (Hilary & Deacon) and cliff-hanger from book 2? Yeah, those are answered and played out in morbid, gut-wrenching, gooey detail that made my heart hurt. I put the book down a few times (that rarely happens to me). Of course… this book also ends with some tears, a cliff-hanger, and a ‘Nina… what the crap!?’. D*** you, Riley!

So prepare your face, you duct-taped punching bag, Riley’s got her gloves on and she likes to leave bruises.

Don’t just take it from me though. Here’s what other readers are saying about Odium 3!

“I have never really been a huge fan of stories that move past the Trilogy stage. But this is one series that you will want to sink your teeth into every single book the author puts out. You will want it to keep going and going.” -Stormy Grant, Amazon.com

“Odium 3 proves one thing to me: Riley is building a world, a world where she knows exactly what she’s doing, and which is as engrossing as The Walking Dead or any other zombie apocalypse.” -Ken Mooney, Amazon.com

“It’s the little things, really, presented without much fanfare, a delicate devastation that catches you unaware and hits you with major force that makes Claire C. Riley’s third book in the Odium Dead saga series so good. Peppered with humour, heartbreak, hope, horror, and sadness, Odium III is an awesome read and I have fallen into another book coma.” –JGud, Amazon.com

“Claire Riley has the ability to hook you with such an awesome display of descriptive ability. Her strength resides in her talent at making you hear, see, feel, and smell everything that her heroine Nina encounters. You would be gravely mistaken if you think this might be some “Harlequin Horror”. Oh no. This is the real deal with grit, violence, and all of the nastiness (in the best way possible) that you want from a horror/zombie tale.” –TW Brown, Goodreads

If the words above don’t convince you to take a chance on this amazing series,
