Reviews for SURVIVAL (Survival Series, Book 1)


“FANTASTIC story. Truly one of the best shorts that I have read this year!” ~~ Amazon Review by TW Brown, Author of the DEAD and ZOMBLOG series. Follow-up review can be found at Brown’s blog, My Top Reads of 2014: “Short story or not, this tale will stick with you. This story opens with a punch in the throat and has you gasping until the last words on the page fade as you turn off your Kindle. It can be a challenge to really offer up characters with depth that you care about in a short story, yet Rhonda Hopkins does just that. And you will experience a roller coaster of emotions throughout. It matters very little if you are a fan of the zombie genre, this is a story that will pull you in and refuse to let go. So do yourself a favor…read this gem and then tell a friend…This was my favorite read of the year.” ~~ December 9, 2014.


“…What set this apart for me were the other elements. First, Sarah rescuing her twin, which is the main story conflict with the zombies just one more thing getting in the way of resolving that problem. Second, Sarah’s relationship with her coworker Merideth and how that changes as they come to understand each other better. Not your typical zombie story at all.” ~~ BigAl’s Books and Pals, November 13, 2015


“I very much enjoyed how this story was written…There is quite a bit of action for such a short story. This definitely felt like it was a big story inside a little book…I recommend Survival to anyone who likes an action packed zombie book, with main characters who seem to have relatable personalities.” ~~Fang-Freakin-Tastic Reviews, March 2, 2015


“Rhonda Hopkins’ Survival series reminds me of TWD – and she’s totally hooked me with the great character and story development in this beginning ‘episode.’ I can’t wait for the next one to see where she takes everything and how the world progresses as I and the zombies follow the characters she’s fleshed out.” ~~ Stacey Joy Netzel, Author of The Still Waters Series


“Her character development is superb. The twins are true-to-life and there is a fascinating relationship with a co-worker which adds a great sub-plot . . . . If zombies are your thing…and maybe if they are not…you will love this book. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. It promises to be a wild ride.” ~~Amazon Reviewer


“Totally hooked me. The characters are believable and the events are realistic. Hopkins provides enough intrigue and action to make you keep turning the pages.” ~~ Jennifer L. Oliver, Author of The Haedyn Chronicles


“From the first sentence I was sent on a non-stop ride of action and gore. Zombies are not the only monsters out there! Can’t wait for episode 2!” ~~ Liz Matis, bestselling author of Playing For Keeps


” A brain-eating good snack…Can’t wait for the next book in the series.” ~~ Anna Erishkigal, Author of the Sword of the Gods Saga.
