Review: Kick at the Darkness (Kick at the Darkness #1) by Keira Andrews

Kick at the Darkness (Kick at the Darkness, #1)


To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

College freshman Parker Osborne is having the worst day ever. He humiliated himself trying to pick up a cute guy, he hasn’t made any friends at school, and his stupidly hot jerk of a TA gave him a crappy grade on his paper. He’s going to drop Adam Hawkins’ film class and start fresh tomorrow after he’s had a good sulk.

But Parker’s about to find out what a bad day really looks like—if he can survive the night.

A virus is unleashed, transforming infected people into zombie-like killers. After these quick and deadly creepers swarm campus, Parker only escapes thanks to Adam swooping him onto the back of his trusty motorcycle. Now they’re on the run—and stuck with each other.

When they’re not bickering, they’re fighting off the infected in a bloody battle for survival. Their only hope is to head east to Parker’s family, but orphaned Adam has a secret he’s not sure Parker will accept: he’s a werewolf. Can they trust each other enough to find some light in these dark days?





This was such an amazing book. So unexpected. There wasn’t a dull moment here. There was so much action. I’m not much of an action reader, but this was great. There was such a wide range of emotions shown, simply a delight to read.

The characters were fantastic, I loved them both. Adam so mysterious and Parker so fun. Each of them with great personalities, and the interactions between them were great.

One of the things I’m always looking forward in a book is to see how realistic it is. Surely, I wasn’t expecting a zombie book to be extremely realistic, but the things that seemed real, and I appreciate very much, were the way Parker and Adam’s relationship developed and, maybe, the way the whole zombie situation was explain or at least try to explain.

In general, a great book. Highly recommended if you are looking for some action and non-stop fun.
