Rachel Mason oozes confidence. She’s outgoing, adventurous and would chop off her right arm before caring what other people think of her or her disability. 


Jared Mattheson on the other hand, is more than a little goofy and a whole lot of carefree. He’s happy living the bachelor life on his father’s credit card, takes nothing seriously and wouldn’t know difficulty if it slapped him in the face. 


With Emily and Dexter away in the States, Rachel and Jared are left behind to keep each other company. They share the same sense of fun, their personalities bounce off one another perfectly and perhaps inevitably, they become best friends. But what happens when the lines of friendship start to blur? How will they cope when the sides of themselves they’ve kept hidden from the world for so long begin to show? 

Their journey together may have started with fun, games and alcohol – but it seems the future has other ideas. 
Turns out, even the strongest of people need someone to lean on sometimes. 

I had not read the two previous volumes but it was not a problem to enjoy this story. Quite original, this romance as the merit of having imperfect characters who fight not to show their weaknesses to others.

Rachel is in a wheelchair. Her handicap lead the author to speak about the society look at disabilities. The discomfort and the preconception that may accompany the handicap. 

Conversely, Jared is epileptic. His condition is not something you can see but his attacks have an impact on his life. They also are a disability. 

wo conditions that give substance to this romance by addressing issues of self-perception and the fear of being imperfect, outside the norm.. 

Certainly, there are some lengths but I found the originality of the story interesting enough. I had a good time with Rachel and Jared.


"If I hadn’t have felt so stone-cold sober, I would’ve sworn I was drunk." 


Traduction du synopsis
Rachel Mason respire la confiance en elle. Elle est ouverte, aventureuse et elle pourrait se couper son bras droit avant de se soucier de ce que les autres pensent d'elle ou de son handicap. 

Pas vrai ? 

Jared Mattheson de son côté est plus qu'un peu maladroit et facile à vivre. Il est heureux de vivre une vie de célibatire grâce à la carte de crédit de son père et ne prend rien au sérieux. Il ne saurait même ce qu'est une difficulté si elle lui giflé le visage. 

Pas vrai ? 

Avec Emily et Dexter partis aux Etats-Unis, Rachel et Jared sont laissés derrière à se tenir compagnie. Ils partagent le même sens de l'humour, leurs personnalités se mariant parfaitement et inévitablement, ils deviennent de meilleurs amis. Mais que se passe-t-il lors les lignes entre l'amitié et quelque chose d'autre commencent à se brouiller ? Comment vont-ils faire lorsque les côtés d'eux-mêmes qu'ils ont gardé caché au monde entier depuis si longtemps vont commencent à se montrer ? 

Leur voyage ensemble a peut-être commencé avec de la légerté, des jeux et de l'alcool - mais il semble que l'avenir leur réserve autre chose. 

Il s'avère que, même les personnes les plus fortes ont besoin de quelqu'un sur qui s'appuyer parfois. 

Je n'avais pas lu les deux précédents volumes et j'avoue ne pas avoir été gênée pour entrer dans l'histoire. Assez originale, cette romance à la mérite d'avoir des personnages imparfaits qui se battent pour ne pas montrer leurs faiblesses aux autres.

Rachel est dans un fauteuil roulant ce qui a permis à l'auteur de parler du regard porté sur les handicapés. L'inconfort et les idées reçues qui peuvent accompagner l'handicap. A l'inverse, Jared est épileptique. Sa condition ne se voit pas mais ses crises ont un impact sur sa vie et l'handicape.
Deux conditions qui permettent de donner de la matière à cette romance et abordant les problèmes de perception de soi, du regard des autres et la peur d'être imparfait.

Certes, il y a des petites longueurs mais j'ai trouvé l'originalité du récit suffisamment intéressante pour passer un bon moment.

Day 5 ~ Your future boyfriend x
Day five? What the hell was that supposed to mean? Seemed I was about to find out when a few seconds later, Jared let himself into my flat, waving his key proudly in the air and looking too hot for his own good in black jeans and a white shirt with just the right amount of buttons undone at the top.
“Good afternoon to you too, saffy. I see you got my flowers?”
“Day five?”
“Today is the fifth day you’ve still not said yes. If I were smarter I’d have started sending them on day one. But I’m not… so we’re starting at day five.”
“Well as long as you know you’re going to end up bankrupt,” I said dismissively, trying to ignore the warm feeling cocooning my heart.
“Nah. It won’t take that long,” he replied confidently. I simply shook my head, amused at his sureness. “You ready?”
“My hair is wet. Do I look ready?”
“You look beautiful.” A smile emerged on my lips without permission, even though I knew he was probably bullshitting me as part of his master plan. “Let me do your hair.”
“My hair. You… want to do… my hair?” What the…
“Sure,” he said, shrugging nonchalantly.
“Um… let me think. How about, fuck no!”
“I’m doing your hair.”
“You are not doing my hair!” I protested, gripping my hand-rims and wheeling away from him.
“I’ll catch you, saffy. I can run faster than you can wheel,” he teased.
“Seriously, I don’t get what’s gotten into you lately!” I stopped, throwing my hands in the air. Damn, I was laughing. I was supposed to be acting pissed off.
“Well I know what’ll be getting into you soon enough.” He strode over to me with a wicked grin illuminating his irritatingly gorgeous face. Then he bent down so his mouth was level with my ear, and when his breath swept across my heated cheeks my breath caught. Damn. “Me,” he whispered throatily.
Ah, fuck. I’m so screwed.

For the last 15 years, Sage Mathews has had her eye on one of the Harper brothers. Each time she came even remotely close to catching his eye, he ruined it by taking advantage of the closest woman around. Despite her many attempts of capturing his attention, she repeatedly ended up suffering from the pain yet again. Having been hurt for the last time, Sage decides to pull herself away from the bad boys of Laker. 

Fate had a different plan for her… Certain surprises have drawn Sage back into the path of the Harper brothers once again, this time exposing her to their interesting...predilections. Possessing secrets of her own, she is thrown into a world she never thought possible. 

One woman holds the Harper brothers' hearts in the palm of her hands, but the true bad boy for her won't allow her into his heart. Will he ever drop his guard down and finally feel the true love from a woman? Will she allow one of the Harper brothers into her heart? Or will he demolish her entirely for anyone else?

Scenes of torrid hot sex for this story-like fantasies with 4 males partners. 
I found the fantasy of having multiple partners well described and well written with erotic, sexy and graphics words. However, the action lacks credibility. 

While the female characters are adorable, loyal and possess a good sense of humor, the Harper brothers are just sex bombs... And Mac's behavior has rather disturbed me. To be honest, the violence of his words and their wickedness towards Sage deeply tainted my reading. I have not seen the value of this character in this fantasy. 

I was also disappointed by the ending. There is no really closing up scene between Sage and Harper brothers. So I was wondering if there will be a sequel or not?

Perfect for lovers of erotica with multiple partners. However, there are some weaknesses in the plot outside the bedroom.

Traduction du synopsis
Pendant les 15 dernières années, Sage Mathews a gardé un œil sur l'un des frères Harper. A chaque fois qu'elle est parvenue à capter son regard, il a tout ruiné en sautant sur la première femme la plus proche. 
Malgré ses nombreuses tentatives pour capturer son attention, elle a fini à plusieurs reprises par souffrir. Donc après avoir été blessée pour la dernière fois, Sage décide de se tenir à l'écart des mauvais garçons de Laker.

Mais le destin avait un autre plan pour elle ... Certaines surprises ont attiré Sage à nouveau sur le chemin des frères Harper, cette fois l'exposant à leurs intéressantes ... prédilections. Possédant ses propres secrets, elle est jetée dans un monde qu'elle n'aurait jamais pensé possible. 

Une femme tient le cœur des frères Harper dans la paume de ses mains, mais le vrai mauvais garçon ne lui permettra pas d'entrer dans son cœur. Baissera-t-il sa garde et connaîtra-t-il enfin le véritable amour d'une femme ? Permettra-t-elle à l'un des frères Harper d'entrer dans son cœur ? Ou la démolira-t-il entièrement pour tout le monde ?

Des scènes de sexe chaudes bouillantes pour ce récit aux allures de fantasmes avec tous les partenaires masculins de l'histoire.
J'ai trouvé le fantasme d'avoir des partenaires multiples bien décrit et écrit avec une plume très érotique, sexy et graphique. Pourtant, l'action manque de crédibilité.

Certes, les personnages féminins sont adorables de loyauté et de bonne humeur et les frères Harper sont des bombes sexuelles mais le comportement de Mac m'a assez perturbé. Pour être honnête, la violence de ses propos et sa méchanceté a profondément entaché ma lecture. Je n'ai pas vu l'intérêt du personnage dans ce récit.

J'ai également été déçue par la non fin qui laisse espérer un autre volume mais qui ne clôture pas vraiment l'histoire entre Sage et les frères Harper.

Parfait pour les amateurs de lecture érotique avec des partenaires multiples mais des faiblesses dans l'intrigue en dehors de la chambre à coucher.

Born and bred in Australia. Have lived here all my life with my wonderful husband and 4 children.
Love reading any kind of books and love to write.
Currently writing my second book in the 'Sweet Series' and love it.




My name is Jade Lennon and I stand still for money.

The night I saw Shane Arthur watching me everything changed. A man in a suit always catches my eye, but it was the way he looked at me that was different. Like he knew me or something. He didn’t know me, especially not in my costume. My sobriety rests on staying away from men, but there was something about him that made me throw caution to the wind.

After all, I was never going to see him again, right?


Standing still isn’t the only way I make my money. I also bartend at a concert hall. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Shane was going to show up there. Not only that, but he’s the most recent addition to the orchestra. So now on a daily basis I have to resist one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever met and he plays the violin. For me that’s one hell of a deadly cocktail.

He wants me to teach him how to live. I’m not sure how much a twenty-six year old recovering alcoholic who works in a bar and moonlights as a living statue can teach a world class concert violinist, but I’m sure going to try.

Still Life with Strings is a story of music, art, sex, magical realism, and romance that you will never forget.

I exited the car and walked over to him, grabbing him by his silk blue tie and led him to my door. As we entered, Julien, a little predictably, was all over me, tugging and pulling, kneading my skin with his strong hands. We were still tangled together, his lips devouring mine, as he kicked the door shut. Oh how I missed you!

Reluctantly, I pulled away, prying his greedy hands away, and pulling on his tie as I led him into my bedroom. I could feel his intense eyes probing me from behind. Yes, Julien… this was now my show, I’m in charge, I told myself. That first night he was the one who conquered my body but tonight I would seek my revenge on him, exploring him completely.

I brought him to the side of the bed, pulling on him so that his face was inches from mine. I brushed my lips lightly against his as I said, “Don’t move.”

I slid my body onto the queen sized bed, facing him. I loved the animalistic and passionate desire in his eyes as he watched me.

“Slowly take off your clothes Julien,” I commanded.

He groaned softly as he did as he was told. He unzipped and dropped his pants, letting them fall to his feet. His erection sprung out from the confines of his boxers, engorged and ready for attention; and oh what a delightful sight it was! Built perfectly it was long and thick, jerking eagerly as I looked him over. Each time it twitched, my mouth watered at the thought of taking him into my hungry mouth. He removed his pinstriped navy jacket and tossed it aside before finally taking off his shirt and tie, standing completely nude before me. The sight of him melted my insides and a flow of liquid oozed freely between my legs.

“Do you want me Julien?” I asked as I moved closer to the edge of the bed. I watched as his breathing increased, his eyes barely open, but still intense with greedy, lusty desire. The unhinged animalistic man, that had taken me so roughly before, was near the surface and burning to take control but I was not ready to let him take over just yet. Slowly I undressed, leisurely unbuttoning my shirt and slipping my skirt off. I made sure to linger longer than usual, watching as his breath caught in his throat each time an article of my clothing was removed.

“Emily…” he groaned as my bra came off, almost sounding like he was in pain. I left my thong panties on just to extend his torment. He had to wait just a little longer for that. This was definitely my show now and I wanted to take full advantage.

“You didn’t answer my question Julien,” I teased as I nested my legs in between his, inching closer and closer to his engorged thick erection and taking him into my hand. My eyes never left his.

He hissed in agony. “Yes I want you Mon chaton, my kitten. Why must you torture me so?” he said as his eyes closed tightly, tilting his head back. I knew that men like Julien weren’t used to relinquishing power to their women. He was the dominator, but not tonight. Tonight, he would submit first and maybe, just maybe, I would restore the balance of power.

My hands were still on him as I stroked his manhood softly; inching closer, my mouth hovered over him, allowing my hot breath to caress his mushroomed head, causing him to let out a deep, guttural groan.

“How much Julien? How much do you want me baby?” I asked while looking up at him through my lashes. Before he could open his mouth to answer, my lips took him whole. My tongue massaging him with purpose as his body went rigid in agony and pleasure. Oh how I missed him, I thought again.

Slowly I worked him, sucking, and licking; taking him deeper and deeper as his hands found their way to my hair, and guided me down his thick, lovely shaft. His sharp indrawn breath pleased me as I took him in all the way. I knew he was close because a small squirt of liquid caressed my tongue, letting me know I had to stop. I pulled away, letting out a popping sound from the release of suction.

“Don’t,” he cried out, wanting for more.

“Ah, patience Mon amour,” I giggled as I recalled him saying those same words to me when I whimpered for more from him. I felt powerful, sexy and I loved it!

Realizing my chosen phrase, his lips curled up, “Mean, mean woman you are Emily…” he teased.

Slowly I turned over onto all fours. I liked the obedient Julien but it was time to summon the primal animal within him and I knew just what would do the trick. I perked my ass up in the air, giving him a lovely view, my mound wet and dripping with excitement. Come for me Julien, let that animal out.

He groaned and slowly walked up to me, attempting to grab me, but I moved away, “Tsk, tsk, tsk… Didn’t I tell you not to move,” I said, my face turned to him with my ass still in the air. “You don’t want to get punished, do you?” I scowled playfully.

To my surprise, he stepped back, although I could see I was testing his patience. It wouldn’t be long before that primal animal inside of him came rushing to the surface, commanding its power back and taking me just the way it had before. I had just a few more minutes so I had to make it count. Determined, I brought my hand to my mound, caressing my nub as he watched, with his chest flaring up and down, and his eyes seemingly mesmerized.

“Tell me Julien, do you like what I’m doing?” I asked, half teasing but fully aroused.

He grunted, “Ah huh…” his eyes were fixated on my swollen mound as I teased my aching nub.

It was now or never. I slid my finger through my silken folds, feeling my body clench around it, moaning in enjoyment and felt him itching to move closer but halting. I pulled my finger out of me and brought it to my mouth, licking it painfully slow, and tasting my sweet essence. Bingo!

She fell willingly, seduced by the erotic foreignness of all that he was. 

Words can be more powerful than touch. Stimulate and engage the senses, then watch what happens... 

They began a daring affair a few weeks ago, baring skin, sensual secrets—their very souls—before their bedroom windows, situated across the street from one another. Now they've taken it to the next level. The laptop screen has added sound to their intimate liaisons, and his voice, that delicious French accent, is oh, so sexy. His laughter teases good shivers across her skin, and his sensual commands seduce her deeper into a world of erotic play. Fantasies lure them into a new intimacy and a surprising trust that the two strangers who have never touched welcome. 

Yet frustrations grow as she pines for his touch. They must meet. Soon. But a secret is revealed that will challenge their desires and the trust both have earned. 

Return to the heroine's Parisian apartment as she continues her relationship with Monsieur Sexy, and they explore the delicious intricacies of cyber-sex. 

Book #2 in the Paris Secrets trilogy begins with a bang... 

The first volume "Window" had really made me have a good time. 
Original and sexy, with a beautiful description of Paris seen through the eyes of an American woman, I've enjoyed my read immensely. Thus, I've been expected the sequel with great anticipation. And I was not disappointed ...
It's sexy as hell!

The author took me on an adventure full of voyeurism and fetishism, perfect for lovers of high heels, directly into a boiling hot relationship via Skype. 
The relationship is still original but now words had been add to the image. 

Suddenly, the fantasies of the two characters can be verbalized and give place to new scenarios. Still sexy, with the addition of sound, one understands how words, intonations of voice have an important place in seduction, excitement between two partners. 
Very well done!

I confess to have found some length in this volume due to lack of action outside of the relationship (rather rooms) between the American and her Musketeer. But the final revelation spices up the narrative. 

But mostly, I've liked the sensual scenes and loved when the heroin steals her virtual lover's boxer... I would have done the same thing! Lol!
I also appreciate when the author aimed at the reader or ask him to take side in her story. It's refreshing and cute!

I look forward to the last part to know whether the sense of touch will be up to the expectation of the two heroes.


"There was a hell of a lot more emotion involved in talking than going through the motions and watching without sound. Talking revealed more than sight alone with tone and rythm. It was that brain thing. Voice engaged my imagination and at the same time connected me to reality." 


Traduction du synopsis 
Elle s'est volontiers laissée charmer, séduite par l'étrangeté érotique de tout ce qu'il était. 

Les mots peuvent être plus puissants que le toucher. Stimuler et éveiller les sens, puis regarder ce qu'il se passe ... 

Ils ont commencé une affaire pleine d'audace quelques semaines auparavant, découvrant un peu de peau, quelques sensuels secrets - mêmes leurs âmes devant leurs fenêtres situées en face l'une de l'autre. Maintenant, ils ont pris leur relation à l'étape suivante. 

L' écran d'ordinateur a ajouté des sons à leur liaison intime, et sa voix, avec ce délicieux accent français, est ô combien sexy. Son rire fait surgir des frissons sur sa peau et ses commandes sensuelles parviennent à l'attirer plus profondément dans un monde de jeux érotiques. Leurs fantasmes les attirent dans une nouvelle intimité et une confiance surprenante que les deux étrangers, qui ne se sont jamais touchés, trouvent bienvenues. 

Pourtant, les frustrations grandissent lorsqu'elle commence à se languir de son contact. Ils doivent se rencontrer. Et vite. Mais un secret va être révélé qui mettra au défi leurs désirs et la confiance qu'ils ont gagné. 

Retour à l'appartement parisien de l'héroïne alors qu'elle continue sa relation avec M. sexy, et qu'ils explorent les subtilités délicieuses du cyber-sexe. 

Le volume 2 de la trilogie "Paris Secrets" commence avec un bang ... 

Le premier volume "Window" m'avait vraiment fait passer un bon moment. Original et sexy avec une très belle description de Paris vue au travers des yeux d'une Américaine, j'avais adoré ma lecture. J'attendais la suite de ce roman avec beaucoup d'impatience. Et je n'ai pas été déçue...

L'auteur m'a fait passer d'une aventure pleine de voyeurisme et de fétichisme parfaite pour les amateurs de talons hauts à une relation chaude bouillante via Skype.
La relation amoureuse toujours aussi originale à maintenant la parole en plus de l'image.

Du coup, les fantasmes des deux personnages peuvent être verbalisés et donner lieux à de nouveaux scénarii. Toujours aussi sexy, avec l'ajout du son, on comprend à quel point les mots, les intonations d'une voix ont une place importante dans la séduction, l'excitation entre deux partenaires.

J'avoue pourtant avoir trouvé plus de longueurs dans ce volume que dans le précédent dû au manque d'action en dehors de la relation entre l'Américaine et son Mousquetaire. Mais, la révélation finale est bien amenée par l'auteur.
J''ai aussi aimé la sensualité des scènes et adoré que l'héroïne reparte de chez son amant virtuel avec son caleçon! J'aurais fait la même chose!

J'attends le dernier volet avec impatience pour savoir si le sens du toucher sera à la hauteur de l'anticipation des deux héros.

Mark Houston has done the unthinkable. The United States Marine has fallen in love with his best friend’s fiancée. Now he has to tell Libby Clifton that Jon was killed in action. When Mark accompanies his friend’s body home to the quiet farming community of Spencer, Wisconsin, he discovers that all was not well between Libby and Jon. He dares to hope there might still be room in her heart for him—until she confides in him that he’s the only friend she has—the very last thing a man wants to hear. Or be.

She’s trying to move on. After the very public funeral of her war hero fiancée, Libby trades the sedate country life for nursing school in big city Chicago. Little does she realize that kilos of opium lay six-feet underground with the man she’s just buried. The cold-blooded cartel boss has proven he will go to extreme lengths to get his drugs back. Mark Houston, now working for Alex Stewart and his covert surveillance team, is determined to protect Libby. Three paths are on a collision course of murder, deceit, and betrayal. 

Opium isn’t the only thing that’s buried . .

An interesting but unbalanced muscular military romance. As in Alex, the author manages to invent a plausible story with fast pace action. This is on the feelings part that the story is lacking strenght.

Indeed, Mark has feelings for Libby at the worst moments ... when she buries her fiancé. Then, they fall for each other when an extremly dangerous situation appears. The shit hits the fan with murders and atrocities ... The timing is never good! 
And when all conditions are met, Mark delivers a surprising revelation and a strange, sweet joke ... I stayed on my hunger! 

The characters are likeable and I was delighted to met them again. Yet, the story is too focused on Mark's missions in Afghanistan and about his relationship with his boss. The action is there but perhaps too present since the romance is lacking a little spice. 

There is some potential but I missed the "wow" factor!


“Now you have everything I own,” he said quietly.
“I do?”
He nodded, his forehead pressed to hers. “My home. My car. And my heart.” 

“Yeah, Mortimer, find a girl with a nice personality, why don’t you?”
“Already met ‘em,” Harley muttered. “That’s why I like my dogs.” 


Traduction du synopsis
Mark Houston a fait l'impensable. Le Marine est tombé amoureux avec la fiancée de son meilleur ami. 
Maintenant, il doit dire à Libby Clifton que Jon a été tué au cours d'une mission. Lorsque Mark accompagne le corps de son ami à la maison, dans la communauté agricole tranquille de Spencer, Wisconsin, il découvre que tout n'allait pas bien entre Libby et Jon. 

Il ose espérer qu'il pourrait encore y avoir de la place dans son cœur pour lui - jusqu'à ce qu'elle lui confie qu'il est le seul ami qu'elle a - la dernière chose qu'un homme veuille entendre. Ou être.

Elle essaie de passer à autre chose. Après des funérailles publiques pour son héros de fiancé, Libby passe d'une vie calme à la campagne à l'école d'infirmière dans une grande ville de Chicago. 

Elle est loin de se rendre compte que des kilos d'opium dorment six pieds sous terre avec l'homme qu'elle a enterré. 
Le patron du cartel a prouvé qu'il ne reculera devant rien pour retrouver sa drogue. Mark Houston, qui travaille maintenant pour Alex Stewart et son équipe de surveillance , est déterminé à protéger Libby. 

Trois chemins sont sur ​​une trajectoire de collision: meurtres, tromperie et trahison. 

Car l'opium n'est pas la seule chose qui est enterrée...

Une romance militaire musclée, intéressante, mais déséquilibrée. Comme dans Alex, l'auteur parvient à  inventer une histoire plausible avec de l'action. C'est du côté des sentiments que le déséquilibre se fait. 

En effet, Mark éprouve des sentiments pour Libby au pire des moments...pendant qu'elle enterre son fiancé. Puis, ils se retrouvent et se déclarent leur amour au moment où la situation escalade avec des meurtres et des atrocités...Le timing n'est jamais bon!
Et lorsque toutes les circonstances sont réunies, Mark et Libby sortent un Joker plus que surprenant...Je suis restée sur ma faim!

Les personnages sont sympathiques et j'ai été ravie d'en retrouver certains. Pourtant, l'histoire est trop centrée sur les missions de Marc en Afghanistan et sur ses relations avec son boss. L'action est bien présente mais peut-être trop car la romance manque un peu de piment. 

Du potentiel mais il m'a manqué le facteur wow!

The world's first Zombie Animal epic is here! 

A deadly hurricane threatens New Orleans just as a frightening and mysterious outbreak hits the animal kingdom! 

Join all-star creators Kevin Eastman, Joshua Ortega, and Digger T. Mesch for this highly anticipated new horror series! With art by rising star Qing Ping Mui. 


A visually stunning comic that lacks a little energy and strengh in the plot. 

The idea of ​​having animals turning into zombie seemed interesting while reading the synopsis. The problem is that the origin of the epidemic is unclear. 
Is it because of the ritual performed on the ducks ? In this case, how can Obama be aware of the epidemy so quickly? 

In terms of characters, the story is a little wild and confusing. All heros are rather idiots and none is really nice. Difficult in these conditions to enjoy them. 
When someone's dead, you don't care...A little bit strange since you're supposed to bond with your characters! 

Another detail that disturbed me: the animals attack humans but they do not infect them after having bitten them ... 
Strange, as I thought it was the norm with zombies? 

As for the art, the drawings are superb, very realistic and detailed. It's worth a look!

Traduction du synopsis 
La première épopée Zombie avec des animaux est arrivée ! 

Un ouragan mortel menace la Nouvelle-Orléans alors qu'une épidémie effrayante et mystérieuse frappe le règne animal! 

Rejoignez les créateurs Kevin Eastman, Joshua Ortega, et Digger T. Mesch pour cette nouvelle série d'horreur très attendue ! 
Avec l'art réalisé par l'étoile montante Qing Ping Mui.

Un comic visuellement magnifique mais qui manque un peu de mordant au niveau de l'intrigue. 

L'idée d'avoir des animaux se transformant en zombie paraissait intéressante à la lecture du synopsis. Le problème, c'est que l'origine de l'épidémie n'est pas claire. 
Est-ce à cause du rituel effectué sur les canards et dans ce cas comment Obama peut-il être au courant si vite? 

Au niveau des personnages, l'histoire part un peu dans tous les sens. Tous les protagonistes sont plutôt des cons et aucun n'est vraiment sympa. Difficile dans ces conditions de les apprécier. 

Autre détail qui m'a perturbé: les animaux attaquent les humains pour les exterminer mais ils ne les infectent pas après les avoir mordus...
Je croyais que c'était la norme pour les zombies ? 

Par contre, les dessins sont superbes. Très réalistes et détaillés, il valent le coup d'oeil.
