I don't usually read this type of genre, but after reading the author's last book (House Trap) and loved it, I thought I should give this one a try too....and I was definitely not disappointed! I found this book really gripping - the way the author writes it is amazing. I wanted to read on, and find out what happens next. Stained is a zombie book - usually, I wouldn't pick up a book like this, but after reading it I can't wait for the next in the series! Lin Matthew is a regular teenager, everything is normal; until he gets bitten by a zombie. It is an action-packed chase, as he tries to get away from the sickly 'humans'. The next chapter is one year later, with Lin alive but in hospital. The doctors confirm that he got off lucky for this condition, but he has to take tablets for the rest of his life. His Dad states that his life will be normal and he can just go back to school. But it isn't that simple. He is an
outcast and his life will never be the same again. All the ideas are so original, it was great to read something fresh and new. This made the ending unpredictable - bravo, Mike Mauthor!
The last sentence of the blurb above is Stained is a different take of a zombie tale like no other. This is so true! This book is unique in every way. The storyline is genius and this is one of the many reasons that persuaded me to read on. totally recommend reading his books, and this one has just made me even more of a fan. If you are looking for a suspenseful, thrilling, and slightly gruesome read, choose this one.
