Blog Tour: Carnage Road

Boone and Walker, the last two members of the Floating Dragons motorcycle gang in Buffalo, set out to re-discover America during the zombie apocalypse. Their odyssey takes them to Ohio, Kansas, Hollywood, and a last stand in Texas. Along the way they learn just what happens when the federal government ceases to exist, and it isn’t pretty.

A tale of friendship and loyalty, Carnage Road is author Gregory Lamberson’s unforgettable ode to westerns, biker pictures, and the cinema of the living dead.

My Review:
This sounded like a really interesting concept for a zombie book. You have two guys that aren't your typical heroes. They aren't really good guys.  Walker and Boone take off with their bikes after their home base gets overrun. They leave to see the world, or what's left of it. They come across rednecks, lunatics, religious nuts, and even some decent folk.

I'm not a big fan of short stories. They always just kind of feel short and incomplete. Unfortunately this story felt that way too. I think this would have been a great full length novel. Walker and Boone would be even better if their characters were fleshed out more. This story had so much potential that I was kind of felt flat. I really wanted to know more about Walker and his history.

All in all I liked the characters, and definitely wanted to know more about them. I just felt like maybe everything was condensed into a short story and would have benefited more by being longer.


  1. I'm not a big fan of novellas or short stories either, but I actually liked this one. I really liked how he brought the politics into it and I found that scenario very plausible...and quite scary, probably even more scary than the zombies. It seems like I read somewhere that he may write more stories about Boone and Walker so maybe you'll get your wish on the history.

    I reviewed this at Castle Macabre yesterday.

    1. I hope he does! I thought the writing was great but just wanted to know more. That's a good sign right?
