Finally, Lee Sutherland is back with book three in his Undead Love series, Long Road Home. To refresh, I’ve read and reviewed book one HERE and book two HERE! Y’all know that I’m a fan of any series where there are zombies, outbreaks, and general mayhem, so let’s jump right in…
Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Apocalyptic Romantic Thriller
When Ares moved to Los Angeles, he thought his biggest problem would be the famous California Earthquakes. Now, he’s one of the few survivors in an undead world, holed up in his, now empty, apartment complex. He’s thought about leaving, but the undead are everywhere, he has a stockpile to last him months, and he only has one gun and a handful of tools as weapons. But one thing could make him leave his hideout…coffee.
Emilia wanted nothing more than to get the hell out of Los Angeles and get home to Arizona. But the undead flooding the streets put a damper on her plan…until she meets Ares by chance while he’s out scavenging. He’s crass, a bit sexist, and pretty skeptical of her plans to escape the city. But Ares has a family of his own, and he doesn’t want to abandon hope just yet. So they gather their goods and hatch a plot to find their families. But it’s not just the undead they need to fear.
I’m a huge fan of series, when they’re done well, and Sutherland has given a third book to be proud of. The story is separate from the others, but they all find ways to interconnect, eventually giving you one giant story of love, sex, loss, violence, and survival. Another thing I found particularly comforting between the motorcycle chases, beat downs, and sexual tension were the lack of typos. I do love a flawless, perfectly edited book. Overall, I didn’t find anything to complain about in this book, and you won’t either! 6/6 Glass slippers!
