The only child of parents who had her right out of high school, Katie is herself about to leave the nest, even though she hardly feels ready. Katie’s new after-school job at the Zimble Box Corporation draws her into the complex social strata of high school cliques and backstabbing friends in ways she never imagined.

    The first chapter dawns with the seemingly semi-pathetic life of lower middle-class teenager named Katie Allred who gets hired at Zimble, Inc., a “box” making company. The company is run by a midget–ahem–little person named, you got it—Mr. Zimble, who mind you, claims to be third generation owner. Katie suspects a weird vibe from everyone working at the Corporation even her old codgery uncle, but just can’t seem to put her finger on it. As the pages stretched ahead, I became intrigued by the world Hughes was building. Between Katie’s distant mother and out-of-touch father, the poor girl really needs some love and warm-blooded attention in a bad way.Katie is given a small carved figurine by Mr. Zimble named Harutso whom she has conversations with in her head and sometimes out loud. Katie lovingly named him ‘Fred’. He talks more like a Japanese Yoda and acts like a carved Jiminy Cricket pointing her toward the moral straight-and-narrow. He’s pretty handy and even Jedi-mind tricks a few would-be zombie attacks from happening—all from his perch in her pocket.All walking dead-hell breaks loose and we find Katie running for her life. After the contagion is supposedly contained, Mr. Zimble sends Katie on a fast track up the corporate ladder without Katie doing anything at all. In comes the hero, a special-op agent of the underground United States government trying to take the country back from the Zombie-Apocover. He saves her from the clutches of the Corporation and informs her she has a long family history of pheromone genetics that make every living dead want to mate with her. (I want to know what that smells like. Seriously.)You see a bit of sparks fly in spite of finding out her savior is a zombie himself who informs her, “Not all zombies are bad, Katie.” Is it love at first brain-eater sight?I can honestly say the end of the book held my attention far past my allotted time for reading before my manic-dash-to-get-to-work-on-time began. I was sorry to see the story end and will definitely read the next book when it comes out. Hughes has a Dead Like Me attitude and I liked it very much. The snark was rich, the depression—teenage appropriate, and the zombie corporation creepy enough to make you want more. In the words of the juggernaut conglomerate – “We want more, we want more.”- A.D. Wayy

    Overwhelming feeling after reading this book - "Huh."The book is split into four main sections:Part One - The First Days: Death RisesPart Two - The Contagion PeriodPart Three - The New World OrderPart Four - The PresentPart One is an introduction to our main character, Katie Allred, and follows her journey into adulthood. She is a high-school senior who's parents have insisted she forget about college and focus on getting a job and moving out on her own as soon as possible. This section of the book is the longest by far, covering 45% of the book in total.Katie is left as one of those ambiguous main characters (otherwise known as the "Bella Syndrome"). There is no real description of her given so as to allow the reader to picture themselves as the main character in the book and better live the story. She is depicted as a bit of a loner in high-school life, keeping to herself and definitely not part of the "in" crowd. She's had a rather uneventful life and her parents live on the bottom cusp of the middle-class; not destitute but only making enough to make ends meet. This seems to be the only way of life her parents know and is all that they are hoping for from their daughter, inferring a sense of pride in working hard for working's sake.Katie seems to float through life doing whatever she is told and never questioning it. Or, if she does question it, writing it off as "well, this is just what adults do". I guess this is where the New Adult category assignment has come from, in that Katie is taking her first venture into adulthood without knowing what that means or how to navigate this stage in her life. Other than this though I would easily classify this book as YA. There is nothing seedy or "mature" in the storyline to make it too much for a YA reader to handle. Maybe that is coming in the next books in the series?Once Katie finds a job at the Zimble Box Corporation she begins noticing strange things in the world around her. She is given a clerical-type job at the company but never really told what she is supposed to do or why. And several of the other employees at the company seem...less than human. But not only is the Zimble company a little "off". When she is put on a special assignment to learn all she can about the "in" crowd at her school, she starts noticing that things are a little "off" with some of her classmates as well.I don't want to spoil the book for other readers, so I will not be going through the rest of the parts of the book in detail. You'll just have to read it for yourself to find out what they entail. :)On to other items...first off. The synopsis tagline "Twilight. With Zombies." is really rather misleading. I was expecting something along the lines of Warm Bodies, where a human falls in love with a zombie. But Book 1 has nothing to do with this romance, only hinting at something in the final chapter. In fact, the whole book ended up feeling like a teaser for a bigger story that we haven't gotten yet. It's the background, the prequel to a New Adult zombie romance story. I am assuming that all the tormented romance will be forth-coming in the series. But for this book I was left wanting more. More of what I was expecting to get.The Zombies. Now this was a twist I actually preferred in this book. The author took a page from the book of Twilight and instead of death-warmed-over zombies with green skin falling off and blood stained chins, the zombies here look like regular humans. They are able to assimilate into human society and live otherwise normal lives (apart from the need to eat human flesh and brains on occasion). The only indicator to humans like Katie is that these zombie "people" seem a little "off". But they easily ignore their intuition and write it off. I enjoyed this remaking of a classic monster into something that could be living among us.The writing style used by the author was different than I am used too. The book is narrated in first person by the MC. And the best way I can describe it is that I felt like I was reading the MC's diary, with dialog. It was well-written, but was almost a re-telling of events that had occurred with the MC's future thoughts on the significance of them. In some points, it is as if the MC had forgotten to write things down in a while, so the chapter summed up the last fews months in only a few short sentences. All I kept thinking was of my own diary and the many, many entries that started with "I know I haven't written in a while so here's what has happened over that time".Overall, I wasn't Wow'ed by the book, but I didn't dislike it either. I was content with the writing and the story, only left wanting more of the romance and the things that are hinted at in this book. I suppose I will need to read the next book in the series to find out where this story is going and if I will like that place in the end. No word at the time of this posting as to when Book 2 will be coming out.Check out all of our reviews at Reviewing Wonderland.

    Review by RobbieIf author Jill Elaine Hughes did not intend Zombie, Incorporated to be a parody of paranormal romance novels, she certainly missed a golden opportunity....We meet our heroine Katie Allred as she is about to graduate from high school and be unceremoniously booted from the nest. She needs a job and since she has the inside track at a local factory, Zimble Box Corporation, she finds herself hired on the spot for a job about which she has no clue, working for a boss who is beyond strange. Katie immediately suspects that all is not as it appears to be at the box factory. People look funny, smell funny and act funny. Her boss, Mr. Zimble, is a little person (midget) and takes a special liking to her. He gives Katie a netsuke, a small medieval Japanese sculpture, to guide her along her way. Katie names her companion "Fred" even though he continuously reminds her that his name is Harutso. Fred is the mind guide you never wanted. His purpose is to ease Katie's way through the Contagion which is a takeover by the Zombie nation, but his advice is so ambiguous that she can't decipher which way to turn. The intra-caput (yes....I made up that word) dialogue between Katie and Fred is laugh-out-loud funny at times but in the final analysis...Fred knows what Fred knows!Katie survives the Contagion which she thinks is the Zombie Apocalypse and returns to her job at the box factory although things have gotten even stranger there. On a day when Fred has warned Katie that all will be revealed, "a man so impossibly handsome, so perfect, that he fairly glows" appears out of nowhere to rescue Katie. Agent Richard Morehouse, Certified Undead Investigator and Eradicator for the FBI, explains to Katie what has really been going on during the Contagion and informs her that she is a Beacon and as a Beacon her services are needed by the FBI. He also tells her that Beacons are irresistible to others and especially to him."I will do anything I can, use any one of my multiple powers to protect you. But I will never, ever touch you. I can't. If I do, I wouldn't be able to control myself. I can barely control myself just sitting next to you."Normally this line would be swoon worthy in a novel, but Agent Morehouse warns Katie that if they allow their attraction to take its natural course and Katie has a baby...she will die. Ooops...definite mood killer!Frankly Zombie, Incorporated was not what I expected. What I expected was a dark tale about the Undead which was not the case. I laughed so much while reading this book. I love Katie...she is spunky and resourceful and she never takes herself too seriously despite having her life turned upside down. Her interactions with the other characters are really comical . The book is very well-written as I would expect from an author with Jill Elaine Hughes' experience so if you love to read and you love to laugh, you will not be disappointed. This is Book One of a series and ends rather abruptly with a snap of Agent Morehouse's fingers leaving the reader dangling and wondering what the author has in store for these very unconventional Undead! I am definitely anticipating reading more of Katie's and Agent Morehouse's story and finding out what direction the author will take in this series.

    I liked this book. Did I love it? No, but I definitely think that there is potential to this story. For starters, this was the first zombie book that I have personally read. And for it being the first one I've ever read, not bad. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And I will continue the series and I am hoping that the series grows as the writer grows into a more seasoned and polished writer. I look forward to reading more about the characters. Now, what I really enjoyed about this book was the way Jill created these zombies. When I first picked this up, I was thinking of the zombies we see in the movies. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones where they walk creepishly slow with their hands out in front of them and their skin is kind of melting off and there are exposed bones and muscles. Yea, those zombies. The ones you definitely would not be fooled by if they walked among us. Well, guess what, those are not the zombies within this story. Jill took the Twilight concept. Instead of these creepy and scary zombies, her zombies walk and live among the humans. I very much enjoyed this rendition of zombies because, honestly, I think it's creepier knowing that zombies exist and can live amongst us without us knowing that they are zombies. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters and their little features. Mr. Zimble is definitely little indeed, but I enjoyed his presence within the book. Katie's mom... she's all right, I guess. Definitely not the kind of mother I want or want to be but she's not the worst of the mothers that are out there in the world. I definitely connected very well to Katie and I was able to see the world through her eyes and step into her shoes. Now, just because I only gave this book a 3-star review does not mean that I won't be picking up the sequel (if there is one) because I did enjoy this book and I think that the sequel can only get better. I'd love to dive back into this world that Jill has created and continue on with Katie's story.

    This book was provided to me courtesy of netgalley.com. “Zombie, Incorporated” is a quirky story about an 18 year high school senior and social outcast, Katie Allred, who is about to be kicked out of the house by her parents and must find a job. Katie’s Uncle Bud has recommended her for work at the Zimble Box Corporation where he has worked for the past 40 years. Prior to graduation, Katie begins working for Mr. Zimble, a strange little man part time.After a few weeks, Katie is given an ivory netsuke from Mr. Zimble and is asked to spy on the popular kids at school to see if she can discover anything unusual. She turns to her former childhood friend, Stacey McCormick to get her invitation to a party with the “in-crowd.” At the party Stacey’s date comes on to Katie and she soon realizes nothing is what it seems including the snacks the kids are eating. The netsuke Katie affectionately names, Fred, warns her of danger and soon she is scrambling to get out of the party and head home.Soon, the city is under military quarantine due to a zombie contagion. Based on a less than stellar greeting from her mother, Katie decides to go it alone, drifting from house to house in search of anything that can be of benefits in helping her survive. When the quarantine is finally over, survivors are forced to register at governmental centers and seek employment either with former employers or government sanctioned work. Katie resumes her work with Mr. Zimble at the factory.This read could best be described as mediocre. I did not like or dislike Katie and the other characters, there was no real action so to speak, humor was virtually nonexistent and the background and storytelling was almost clinical in nature. Additionally, it was very difficult for me to believe that Katie is 18 years old. She is rather immature and acts more like a 14-16 year old teenager. In short, “Zombie Incorporated” was a less than stellar read.

    Well… I’m a little confused! The book was good but there were things that just had me saying … “What?”I got to the end and I had the same thoughts that I did at the beginning, I’m just not sure about what is going on. More questions than answers but in no way did I dislike the book. The plot was engaging, although thoroughly weird, but I was wondering and questioning the occurrences and the people that Katie meet.Katie is an enigma as well. I didn’t really like her to begin with but about half way through I started coming around. She’s still not my all time favorite character, and boy does she do some things that are not necessarily out of character but tended to grate on my nerves. It’s not that she’s necessarily snarky, but there’s something about her that just hits me wrong. Fred however was awesome and I loved when he started talking to Katie.The book is separated into three parts and there is a part about a Contagion. What is really confusing are the people that are just out and about. Katie always feels like something weird is going on, and seriously if I were her I would think so too, but never are there any REAL signs of specific zombies. Actually even during the contagion Katie doesn’t run into any zombies. And that’s the hard thing about rating this, going in thinking I’m reading about zombies and then reading a more paranormal book…I would categorize this more as a paranormal or even a bit dystopian since it has some very dystopian stuff going on. That would explain the weird stuff that happens everywhere and the organization that Katie works for without giving anything away. Also, being a zombie lover I enjoy the zombies that are in people’s faces and tearing off their skin, there’s none of that here. Which didn’t make it a bad book, just very different. Still, it ended on a total cliffhanger and I am curious what is going to happen next.

    I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.This book is part of a series and one must remember this. Book One in this series can be thought of it as a prelude to the series. I read it quite fast (and on vacation no less). I want to say firstly that this book is nothing like Twilight. (Which is nothing bad. Since I cannot stand the Twilight series.) It is not a romance. It is more of the coming of age within the supernatural.Katie Allred lives with her parents (don't even get me started on them. They are cruel with their negligence) and is trying to navigate the last months of her senior when she is forced to get a job. She gets a well paying job at the Zimble Box Co. doing clerical work. Thus begins her eyes opening to the strange things that happen around her as she begins to discover the truth about her world.Most of the book is just questions about her world as Katie learns who to trust. Her greatest ally will be herself. She is smarter than she thinks and the unique thing about this book is that we gain knowledge and confidence within the world as Katie does. The book almost is completely in Katie's own head and it is a risky thing to do as an author. You have to have confidence in the character. I really enjoyed living inside Katie's head. She has a sense of humor even her most pathetic circumstances.I would choose to read book two. I found book one short, but intriguing enough to move forward with the characters. The book has flaws, but in all it's strengths far out weigh it's weaknesses.

    I received this novel from NetGalley.This novel wasn't at all how I thought it would be and in some ways that is refreshing. It wasn't set out like most cliche zombie novels, this had a story line deep within, making it less about the infecton itself and more about the people it affected and how it came about. This in itself is refreshing and gives something new to the genre, however for me, a zombie novel has a lot of blood, guts and gore, and this was severely lacking from this novel.The protagonist was somewhat likeable, she seemed a little to naive in relation to what was going on around her, considering her line of work and the restrictions she faced with her parents. The novel is well written and a fast and easy read, it seems to be a little bit 'novel' and as though it is taking the micky a little bit, but the next novel will hopefully tie up all those seemingly teasing ends. Good read, great for younger teens.

    This is the story of Katie Allred, an girl on the verge of graduating high school (she's also told that the day after she graduates she's being kicked out of her parent's house.) To ease her way into the adult world, her parents have arranged a job interview for Katie with Zimble Box Company. From that moment forward, Katie's life changes, sometimes for the better, but mostly for the worse. A zombie outbreak follows, and Katie discovers that her new employer isn't what he seems to be. I really like Katie. You get to know her very well from the thoughts she has, and the arguments she has with Fred, a kind of guardian angel she acquires. I enjoyed spending time with her, and seeing her outlook on the world. The book isn't perfect, and it's really just the beginning of a longer story, but it is rather enjoyable. I look forward to the next book. I'd be happy to enter Katie's world again.

    The book falls under the Science Fiction & Fantasy genre and is geared towards the pre-teens/teens (maybe up to young adult) market. Reading the chapters was pretty easy and vocabulary used is simple. Story flow was basic, nothing too heavy actually but still with enough drama and angst to keep it interesting. It is something expected from books that pre-teens/teens would read.I loved how the book ended and I for one am eagerly awaiting for the next installment in the series.If you ever find yourself looking for a book that’s easy to read (and a zombie genre loving person too) try reading this book and see if it interests you as well.Full review here: Zombie, Incorporated

    This book is amazing.Can't wait to read more of this serise.Though I would have to say that I prefer the cover from netgalley.The story hooks you write from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the very end. (right)The ending was like WOW never expected that.The zombies aren't your typical zombies.Intact you would be hard pressed to tell them apart from the living which makes it all the more creeper.You would think that would make it lame but it actually works.I love that everything is run by a shadow government.Shadow governments rock.

    I was given this book by the author for my honest reviewI really wanted to enjoy this story but I really couldn't. The story line was slow and the main character was just to blind and stupid for my taste. Everything was happening around her and she just kept acting like everything was normal. The one highlight of this book was the ending because that was when everything got really good and that is the reason why I will read the next book in this series to see where the story will go.

    Let me start this review by saying WTF. I am not a big swearer, but that phrase continuously ran through my head for the majority of this book. For most of this book I was so confused as to what was really going on as well as the point of the book.The story is about 18 year old Katie. Her parents have told her education is not important, that she needs a job because they are kicking her out of the house as soon as she graduates. She ends up getting a job at the Zimble box factory for the very odd owner Mr. Zimble who deems her his favorite employee and gives her an ivory figurine to keep with her at all times. She is proud of her job, yet it seems to be the only thing going for her because she is barely going to graduate, has no friends or social status, has a poor relationships with her parents who go out of their way to tell her they didn't want her, and she suffers from depression but doesn't want to treat it. Overall she is a hot mess, with no ambition, and now a respectable job where she has no idea what she is suppose to do. She notices the teens at her school are acting weird, and people are missing. Oh by the way, the Zombie Apocalypse just started! Katie bumbles her way through a zombie rampage and the new world order with the help of a few new "friends" and pure dumb luck.I felt really bad for Katie in part one of the book, it felt like more of a teen angst growing up story than the zombie action book I was expecting. After part one, it got more exciting less depressing, but jeez this girl has no idea what is happening or what she is even doing. She seemed so content to bumble along, accepting everything at face value, even going as far as to lord her working status over others even though she doesn't even know what her job is! Get a clue girl, things are not really what they seem! I really wanted to shake her. Part four was like 20ish pages of very actiony-weirdness. The love interest made no sense, and her intense need for him made me sit in more confusion.That being said, I will most certainly read the next book in the series, because with that kind of cliff hanger ending another book has to come out. Maybe I am just a masochist, but I want to read the next book to see if it makes more sense. And maybe the reason for this book to be so confusing was the fact it was told by the main character's perspective and she really had no clue what was occurring around her. She was completely fine with it, where as I was not. Whatever, benefit of the doubt going into play here. I received this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.

    Twilight with zombies? I had to question if this was the best marketing tag line or not...I am going to have to say not. Twilight had long since grown out of the public spotlight and shifted into the outdated category when this book initially released in 2013, first error. Second error; the book is nothing like Twilight; the only coinciding feature would be a teenage girl, not enough to think this tag would be the big selling point.Regardless, after getting over that hurdle, I dove into the novel with interest. I am a zombie nut. Plain and simple tempt me with a zombie tale and I am going to read it.Zombie Incorporated, has a level of potential, unfortunately it took a long time for the story to reach that point where you truly were drawn into what could come to happen. The character of Katie Allred is intriguing, enough so that you can relate to her. This is the shining aspect of the book.Alas, the first person point of view is the first stumbling point the reader is faced with, and that authors need to be aware; it takes a delicate touch to pull it off for an entire novel. Characters beyond Katie, even Mr. Zimble, are relatively flat and uninteresting. The excessive product placement, brand placement detracts from the overall story being told, and dates the author.Yet, it is the overall plot and flow of the story that leaves the reader stumbling along, like one would expect a zombie too move. Here is another shining spot within the book; the fresh concept for what a zombie can be, unfortunately it doesn't get explored until the very end of the story.The best section of the book comes as Katie must face the world alone after the contagion is released. During this portion of the novel and plot the character grows into an adult. Unfortunately she devolves after this point. Hughes does do a great lead in to the next novel in the series, opening an interesting door. Hopefully the first book in The Katie Allred Zombie Series has enough momentum to lead readers on to the next adventure.RATING:

    I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.I have never given a book 2 stars before, so it's a real shame this book is my 1st.The tag line "twilight with zombies" is really misleading. Only around 2% of this book has any romance and for me, twilight is my number 1 love story. I was given this book as I am a member of the new adult book club, I wouldn't classify this as new adult or young adult in the slightest.Additionally the synopsis is quite misleading. It mentions Agent Morehouse, I was thinking "ooooh, tormented and forbidden love affair"... Well that was not delivered in this book.However what I would say is that it has promise, this is appears to be book 1 of a series and Agent Morehouse is only in the final handful of pages. I would like to see where their story goes and how the relationship develops. I just feel that the synopsis shouldn't have mentioned him as he played such a small part in the book (well an important part but not a large part) and perhaps he should be mentioned in book 2's synopsis. The writing style was good, I enjoy a book from 1 characters POV and the book was written this way throughout. I did skim read a lot, hoping to get to some juicy romance but was left unfulfilled.If you like a series and don't mind a slow start, this book is for you as like I said there is promise. I feel absolutely rotten giving such a negative review however I hope my points are taken into account for the authors future work. There was a lot of detail in this book and is clear a great deal of work and thought was put into it - I couldn't do it - but I was asked for an honest review and here it is.Thanks for the opportunity to read this. Still undecided if I will read book 2!
