This is a look at the characters that surround Darlene Bobich and the start of the Zompoc.
This one focuses on Tosha Shorb, her twin Trista, Randy Jackson and finally Eric and Jessa in an awesome piece of fan fiction.
I say “this one” as AR promises more in this series, woohooo!
This starts off brilliantly with a party fight, just as you would expect Tosha to be in; she is one tough little cookie, but one with a heart. I really like ARs female characters, they are all well able to look after themselves, have a sense of humour, sexy as hell, tough as nails yet show a lovely sensitive side.
As the Zompoc takes hold she and Trista do what should be done and hole up with blankets, snacks and daft stories. However, as practicalities set in they go searching for food and weapons.
When tragedy strikes and Tosha is left alone, she goes into melt down mode but not for long as Trista soon turns up again as a guiding force, this little twist to the Zompoc in ARs world is interesting and gives a new focus, or Tosha is just bonkers!
There area few other characters thrown in, like all her apartment building occupants, which all lend themselves to some humourous and gory moments! She also comes across a complete female lunatic, which just had me in giggles.
There is some serious vengeful stuff that occurs and really gives you the gore factor, although what a waste of alcohol! This scene adds to the whole build up story of why Tosha is the way she is when you meet her later in the Dying Days series.
Near the end we are introduced to Randy Jackson in the funniest way; can’t wait to see how he gets out of that predicament!
The last few chapters are written by Dying Days fan Lisa McKinney and she does a great job of telling Eric and Jessa beginnings.
