Your Favorite Celebrities Just Might Be Zombies

Hi there, zombie lovers! In my story, FATAL, zombies live among humans, blending in seamlessly. I know, it sounds impossible but the truth is, zombies as you know them, are NOT the norm. They don’t start rotting and shuffling and trying to eat you until they reach old age (known as the Age of Deterioration) and become contagious.Then they resemble the monsters you know and love.

Now that we’ve cleared that up, I have some news for you… are you ready for this? It’s big. HUGE, I tell you. Here it is: your favorite celebrities might not be human.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Crazy talk? I think not. Just consider it. Some of them seem ageless. Just like, ahem, zombies (who don’t age until they grow old and start to rot). They’re either robots or zombies, that’s all I’m saying.

Here are some of my top suspected zombie celebrities:

Will Smith

Jared Leto

Guest post 2-8

Lauren Graham

Guest post 2-4

Catherine Zeta-Jones


Guest post 2-5


Guest post 2-6

There you go, judge for yourself! And if my suspicions are correct, I’m thinking Hollywood is FULL of the undead. As for myself, I’m keeping a very close eye on Mr. Leto. There’s no telling when he might turn rotter.





Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old… and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead, he had no memory of his former life. Grayson desperately wants to recapture his lost humanity. And he’s been told that there is one person in this world who can save him from his current fate before he begins to decompose. One person, whose life must be sacrificed for his.

Cori Abbott has a million things to worry about. She’s the new girl in a school that’s a fraction the size of her old one. Her antisocial tendencies are crippling her ability to make new friends. And then there’s the recent, sudden death of her father, the only man who ever understood her. The last thing Cori wants is the attention of a strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. A guy she can’t stop thinking about.

Will Cori break through Grayson’s cold exterior and find the human within, the boy who can love and understand her like no other? Will Grayson sacrifice Cori to rid himself of his undead curse, even if it means losing her forever?

My Review: 5  ENORMOUS hearts ♥♥♥♥♥

It’s official. I’m madly, desperately in love with Zombies. (Well, okay, T.A Brock’s zombies is more like it.) After tearing through the pages of Fatal, in the span of twenty four hours, I was not only left with a huge, ugly book hangover, but also an unhealthy obsession for a certain boy-zombie by the name of Grayson Patch. Ms. Brock has officially blown me away with this novel, and to say that I may have  just found one of my top five favorite reads this year would be an absolute understatement.

It takes a lot for me to truly fall for a book anymore. Maybe it’s the fact that I read at least a book a day has something to do with it. But from the very beginning, I can usually tell if a book is going to be for me or not, and two pages into Fatal, I already knew that THIS was going to be a good one.

Oh how wrong I was though, because GOOD is putting it mildly.

But enough with my gushing…

In the beginning, there’s Cori. The quiet, new girl who doesn’t have friends, is dealing with an emotionally absentee mother and the grief over losing her father. What she really wants to do is be left alone. But fate and science have other things planned for her, bringing Grayson into the mix.

Grayson is the walking dead. A zombie of nineteen years. And Grayson is not exactly a happy guy when it comes to his situation either. This boy takes angry and broody to a level that goes entirely beyond the normal angst. In fact, he’s hateful, cruel even, especially when he discovers Cori, the girl who is supposed to be his save. (Save being the one person who might possibly help him regain his humanity.) is not who he once thought she’d be. Then another problem arises: Grayson becomes drawn to Cori, so much so that killing her to save his humanity is no longer an option…or is it?

I adored these characters. Felt them like they were my friends, like I was taking this journey right beside them. Cori was real. She wasn’t the super tough girl, like a lot of young adult books portray anymore. To me, she was more real because of that ability show emotions. She cried, she loved, she smiled and fell in love for the first time. She didn’t have to be a butt kicker to be a tough character.

Grayson…what can I say, really, besides the fact that I loved this guy. Strong, protective, loves hard…you name it, that’s Grayson. Well…except for being human. But that’s okay, I’ll still take him. :)

The twists and turns that Grayson and Cori are taken on are epic. So much angst, so much romance, so much humor. Fatal had it ALL. This was a definite twist on zombies stories that I can handle. Less gore, more love…thank you! I highly, highly recommend the awesomeness that is Fatal. T.A Brock is one author you don’t want to miss out on, trust me. Pick up this book. Now.
