Review: Hero for Hire by Merissa McCain & Margaret Madigan

One day her prince would come...disguised as a zombie-killer. Having been disgraced and tossed out by her own scientific community, Gwyn is convinced she can develop a cure for a SuperVirus that has turned the Infected into zombies. By pure luck and determination, she has survived on her own for years, but while out scavenging, a clash with the local zombies leaves her potentially infected. Now, running out of time, she needs help and takes a chance on a hero for hire.

Rafe loves the apocalypse. Since the world went to hell, everything's come up roses for him. Having procured a mansion in the Hollywood hills, adopted a slew of homeless boys and one cantankerous but useful Doc, Mr. Charming is benefiting from the nasty zombie infestation. His job? Killing the bastards, which he considers fun anyway. Gwyn Snow needs Rafe Charming to help retrieve her research from the Paragon Pharmaceuticals lab, also known as Zombie Central. Believing she can yet save the world, Gwyn makes Rafe question what's right and what's worth the fight.

This is a fairytale retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves during the zombie apocalypse. I have to say this was a fun story.

I am surprised Gwyn was able to live as long as she had by herself in this story. She is in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and she doesn’t even know how to shoot a gun. She did have brains and guts though so I got to hand it to her she did better than a lot of people. I thought that the addition of Gwyn’s former co-workers towards the end really made the story. Rafe is loving the zombie apocalypse I think because he enjoyed the rush of fighting zombies as well as protecting anyone he could. He was a great addition to this story.

There were several funny parts in this story that had me laughing out loud. Poor Gwyn was not cut out to be fighting zombies without any training.

The only thing I didn’t like as much was it felt like something was left out or that it just should have been a little longer. I felt that towards the end the story it was a little rushed but otherwise definitely a good story.

If you like zombies or fairytale retellings I recommend checking this story out.
