Book Description

Oct. 31 2010
WHEN GOD TURNS HIS BACK ON THE EARTH Fires blaze out of control. Looters are run through with speeding lead. Children scream as their flesh is torn by broken teeth. Firearms insistently discharge in the night air. Overtop of it all, the moans of the infected crowds out any pause for silence. THE EPIDEMIC SHOWS NO MERCY Men. Women. Fathers. Daughters. Wives. Brothers. All are susceptible, and the viral infection is a death sentence. One hundred percent communicable. One hundred percent untreatable. It's making people insane, turning them feral. Zombies. No end is in sight, and Carey Cardinal has run out of options. ONE SHOT AT SEEING SUNRISE Past lives, shadowed histories and long-kept secrets will emerge, making the twisted road ahead ever more difficult to navigate as Carey will discover a foe far more dangerous than the shattered grey dogs - himself. Tick. Tick. Tick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Started slow, but nice finish. Interested in other works by this author. March 12 2011
By Keefo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm torn over this review. I think, given that this is a first novel, it's a good effort but falls short. I like zombie stories, but there are so many that are rehashes of the same old story that it's hard to identify the gems with the huge volume of slush. This isn't slush, but I wouldn't call it a gem either. There are some sparkles -- enough that I would pick up a sequel if one comes out -- but I found the story lacking in too many ways to be a true gem.

I've read through the reviews here that point out the fresh take, and the surprising twists. I really did find that, for the most part, the plot is very predictable. Maybe it's because I read a lot of horror, and a fair amount of zombie material, but I did not find a lot of surprises here. There was one nice, tiny twist at the end that I enjoyed. I say nice, because I wasn't expecting it and it was well timed. I say tiny because there was opportunity for so much more, and the way it played out I don't know why it made such a huge difference in the story. I can't say any more than that without giving it away.

I thought it took too long to get rolling. It's a short book, and I was halfway through before we got to the meaty action (there were appetizers before that point, but I had to wait too long for the meal!). There was plenty of tension early, and it built up throughout the story, but it seemed to take forever to get to the "good stuff." Early on, I kept going, "Ah-hah! Here we go!" only to feel like the author was jamming on the breaks a page or two later.

Above I said I'd buy a sequel, given my criticisms so far that may be tough to buy, but here's why. For one thing, the ending just sets itself up for a sequel. It's not a cliff hanger ending that left me feeling cheated by any means. I felt satisfied with the ending ,however, I did want more. The final 50-60 pages or so, the story moves along at a great pace and the tension builds up to what I thought was a solid ending. The writing was solid (not juvenile in the least). However, the main reason I'd look this author up again is that I felt like I was seeing him develop and grow as I turned from page to page. That may sound weird, but you know how when you read an author's earlier works you see the weaknesses that they've addressed, how they've developed from one novel to the next, and how they've grown and honed their craft? I saw this writer grow as the book progressed. The writing tightened up, the descriptions were more consistant, the story was better paced (and I don't mean it was non-stop action; there was tension build up, let off, varied pace, etc.), and I felt more in touch with the characters. Sandusky really hit his stride in those last 60 or so pages, and I find myself looking forward to his next release -- I'm hoping and expecting, if he starts where he left off, it will be a gem.

Last note -- I like the cover :) Its creepy, B-horror style makes me both smile and shiver at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars: Compelling April 5 2011
By Jessica Woodman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Not what I expected. Much more internal dialogue than the usual Z book. There could have been more action in the first half of the book, and more interaction with the zombies. I wish it had been longer, since the whole book was less than 24 hours of time. I guess I am feeling torn between wanting less internal struggle, and more survival type struggle. I will read the sequel when released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grey Dogs March 12 2011
By Big John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
interesting zombie book in that it is realistic. The main character Corey is just an average guy trying to make his way to his family as the dead begin to rise. He doesnt have unlimeted access to fire arms or is he an ex Marine. I for one will be on the look out for the next instalment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh May 20 2013
By Doug518 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had high hopes for this book based on a referral from a friend, but was disappointed. Slow to start, felt like the author was trying too hard to be "cool" with his writing style. Just an average book IMO

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic start to a series Nov. 3 2010
By Android - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Firstly I will say that grey dogs isn't end to end action with a desk jocky turned marine with a huge arsenal of weapons destroying all zombies that cross his path. What you do have is an inteligent story about an average everyday guy (Corey) doing his best to survive and reach his loved ones after the dead start to rise. I look forward to the next book in the series.
