Release Day Review “SHTF” By: Gillian Zane





Gillian Zane is one of those writers that can spin gold out of anything. SHTF was an insider’s look into Tim “Romeo’s” life and how things came to be.

I have to say I’m an Army girl that’s fallen in love with a bunch of Marine’s, and any Army girl will tell you that’s hard as hell to do (no offense to my Marine’s I love all of my military men!) Gillian Zane has this incredible talent for wielding emotions, so much so that she makes you feel each and every gut wrenching emotion as it happens in the story. SHTF brought me to my knees, ripped out my heart, and shattered my insides so many times I don’t think I have any tears left to cry.

Romeo’s character is so complex and so incredibly deep there are truly not any words to describe the level of emotion that Gillian Zane evokes in a reader as she brings this honest to god “Hero” to life. And if I had to choose a hero out of any of the characters she has written Romeo definitely has my vote. Gillian really broke the emotional mold in this book we get a glimpse of Martinez again seeing him will bring the water works back all over again and make you miss him all over!

The fact that we get to see what started our little apocalypse from the beginning is something that I’m loving. Incredible thought and detail went into it and the Costco scene…wow…literary genius! Lookout World Gillian Zane is here and she’s taking over. You want to know what the next big thing is don’t look any further she’s arrived.

This is one incredible Novella you don’t want to miss!


An action-packed prequel to the Amazon bestselling NOLA Zombie series. This isn’t a romance…there aren’t any happily-ever-afters, this is just Romeo’s fight for survival and how he became a NOLA Survivor. 

It’s Friday night in New Orleans and Tim “Romeo” Voiter has the night off. A night of rest and relaxation is something new for the former Marine, and he’s looking forward to enjoying a fun night out with his buddy, Lucas Martinez. The two men try to ignore the emergency broadcasts and news about the spreading iKPV virus and just enjoy the evening. Romeo, true to his name, even hooks up with a hot redhead and plans on ending the evening at her place.

Plans come crashing down, though, as he comes face to face with what the iKPV infected really looks like-and it is not like any infection he’s encountered before. Knowing the media is sugarcoating the virus and things are about to get a lot worse in his city, Romeo talks his family into leaving their urban home and bugging out to a more secluded and secure area; the compound his employers own at the edge of the city, deep in the marsh that surrounds New Orleans. But, as the infection spreads and New Orleans begins to fall under the chaos of victims gone made with the virus, Romeo begins to realize that the “stuff” has hit the fan in New Orleans and things will never be the same for the Voiters.
