review: rise again by ben tripp

It should have been a typical Fourth of July. Sheriff Danielle Adelman had some holiday duties like judging the chili contest held by her small California hometown, but it all should have gone smoothly. Instead, Danny discovers her younger sister has stolen her beloved classic Mustang and an officer from out of town arrives to tell her some sort of mass hysteria is taking place around the world. Shortly thereafter, a body is found and the hysteria starts there too. Danny does her best to organize, but even her military training couldn’t have prepared her for what happens next—the dead begin to rise again.

The primary focus on the zombie uprising was spot on with Danny and her ragtag team battling the zombies and the interference of a private military contractor team, but the subplot involving Danny’s search for her sister was merely a distraction. It seemed to be there to humanize Danny, but was simply unnecessary.
3/5
