Buried Instincts - Lost and Found


Must read 🏆

Exceeds expectations of what you would expect to see in a zombie apocalypse

Buried Instincts Book Two: Lost & Found by Lynn Henson exceeds expectations of what you would expect to see in a zombie apocalypse offering.  The story begins with a mind-reeling brisk walk through events that landed characters into their current situation.  After you are brought up to speed, characters are thoroughly introduced and explored as their journey unfolds.  What makes this specific book a particularly interesting read is it delivers an ominous undercurrent of a brewing story while the usual bells and whistles of a zombie apocalypse play out.  That evil undercurrent is fed a continuous stream of teasers making the seduction of this apocalypse intriguing, potent, and devouring page after page.

Henson has put the time in on character development and it shows.  The story is told largely from Blake’s perspective as he takes the perilous journey from the west coast to the east coast.  There is a lot of ground to cover which makes for a colossal amount of opportunity, character engagement, and plot thickening.  The dynamics of the group and events are well-illustrated which allows readers to fully immerse themselves into the world.  For example, a great deal of the story for this book takes place in the Midwest--where I grew up.  If I had not known better, I would have thought Henson was from the Midwest.  His thorough research and attention to detail provide an incredibly accurate depiction that takes Buried Instincts Book Two: Lost & Found to next-level writing.

Overall, Lynn Henson delivered a suspenseful story that is easy to read, has a unique plot, relatable characters, bouts of humor, and satiates the avid zombie cult reader, like me.  There is not one dull moment throughout Buried Instincts Book Two: Lost & Found as the storyline consistently builds, which I found incredibly refreshing.  I look forward to the next book and will be shelving Henson as one of my new favorite authors.
