Blood Memory: Season One, Episode One (Blood Memory – 1) by Perrin Briar
(Excerpt from Goodreads) Haven’s crew find Jordan Grant half-dead floating at sea. With a six-year hole in his memory, he remembers nothing of the Incident or the Lurchers who have claimed the land as their own. He joins the crew in their daily struggle to survive in a harsh new world where every meal is live or die.
But when a shipwreck forces them from the safety of the sea, the crew soon discover their pursuers aren’t the only monsters out to get them.
I small crew of people live on the Haven, a ship to avoid the zombies on land. One day they discover a body that looks like a water-logged zombie but is actually a human. They bring him on board and start nursing him back to health. They learn they have save Jordan Grant who is suffering from amnesia and cannot remember the last 6 years of his life. Jordan takes the news of the zombie apocalypse a little hard but finds a place in this group. But things are about to get rough and not everyone is going to make it.
This is the first part in a two season, five book each series. Although the story is not very long, 170 pages, I instantly got sucked in. This small group of survivors has limped through what is left of life on a boat that is falling apart and pieced together with whatever they can find or scavenge from other boats/ships. Then enters Jordan. He remembers leaving a base but nothing else. And being on a boat that is already falling apart means they are running on borrowed time.
This is a shorter story so there is not a whole bunch of character development but it would be the same way if you were in this position. Just from this book I have the two complete collections in my wish list and have purchased Perrin’s other book Swiss Family RobinZOM. I can’t wait to get reading that one too.
I purchased Blood Memory on the recommendation of someone in Perrin Briar’s launch group.
