It’s a human eat human world out there.
Adrienne awakes to find herself inexplicably thrown into a world populated by the undead and soon learns that, in order to survive, she must adapt by eating the dead — before they eat her.
Assuming the role of protector of an abandoned young boy whom she befriends, Adrienne embarks on a hunt for both survival and meaning, struggling to keep them both alive, remain sane, and to preserve her humanity.
Flesh Eaters is an irreverent tale of zombies, cannibalism, and self-consumption. Mixing survival horror with smatterings of postmodernism, existentialism, black humor, and nihilism, Alisha Adkins, in this debut novella, weaves a graphic and disturbing story while also making a stark statement about humanity.
Reader reviews from Goodreads:
“This was a good read, definitely kept my attention. The message in the ending was very strong, Adrienne’s words were very moving. It makes you see life and human beings in a very different light. Over-all seems like your typical zombie apocalypse story, but it was moving and brought out many emotions during the read.”
“Bizarre, disturbing, unique, grotesque, haunting all come to mind with this one… it disturbed me enough to stay with me long after the reading part was done. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of zombie material.”
“Definitely a dark and disturbing read, this story grabbed me and didn’t let go until the very end. That bleak, hopeless feeling crept in and (I suspect) will remain with me for a while… All in all, it was a compelling story and I look forward to reading more from this author.”
