Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse?
#bookreadhappyhour | day 25 | June | Choose your fictional Zombie Apocalypse Survival Squad: Fighter, Strategist, Medic, Chef
It’s #stabbymonday! And I’m here with Joe Abercrombie’s fabulously #stabby and dark The First Law trilogy. Complex characters with greyer than grey motivations (and you know how much I love grey!) and plenty of battles, quests, betrayals, and, yes, even love, but Abercrombie style. 5 stars from me for each!
Now, about that squad…
1. Fighter: Seriously, could I choose anyone other than Logen Ninefingers? Or rather, the Bloody-Nine? This Northman has a dark past, and his future doesn’t look too bright either, but say one thing about Logen, say he’ll make actual mince of any zombie in our path. 😉
2. Stragetist: Hear me out. Sand dan Glokta may not exactly be all in one piece and, sure, he might slow us down, but I’d bring him on as my strategist slash inquisitor any day. And, if anything, he’ll scare the humans who cross us more than the Z’s.
3. Medic: Hmm, maybe Bayaz’s magic can keep our strategist alive for a while? If I can trust him...
4. Chef: Right. So I don’t want anyone in this trilogy cooking my food. They’re too busy fighting to make anything tasty. So I’m crossing over to the Promise of Blood world and bringing Mihali. What? Unfair to have a god who likes to cook on my team? At least we’ll never go hungry!
Join us! We’re going to survive this #stabby apocalypse. Someone get me my sword.
Don’t forget to head over to @jenabrownwrites to see who she’s gonna #murder #makeout or #marry today… I know who I’m gonna choose.
