When Nick and Maggie escape into the wilderness for a romantic camping trip they get more than they bargained for in the shape of a troop of long-dead Civil war troopers...

Young lovers Nick and Maggie decide to escape the city to spend a romantic weekend camping deep in the idyllic countryside. The excursion begins well, but soon degenerates into a maelstrom of terror when one of them comes face to face with an undead civil war soldier. They flee into the wilderness, but soon find themselves trapped in a deserted cabin and engaged in a mortal battle with a group of long-dead Confederate bushwackers, in the dead of night.

Dead of Night
Dead of Night is a fun read that will give you the creeps and make you think twice the next time you plan to venture into the woods at night. It's a zombie story with an original twist that I appreciated. It's well written, flows nicely, and both of the (live) characters are well developed and believable. Let's face it - The woods are a creepy place even in the daylight sometimes and thanks to CM Saunders I won't be camping anytime soon.

Dead of Night
When Nick plans a camping trip for himself and his new girlfriend, Maggie, he ignores the stories about the location he has chosen. Supposedly the area was used as a burial ground for Civil War soldiers and several disappearances have been reported in the area. But Nick and Maggie learn the truth when they are woken by a Confederate zombie in the middle of the night.

The plot isn't the most unique, but Dead of Night is still entertaining for zombie fans. Although it has lots of gore, it isn't all about the blood and guts. Instead it is suspenseful and atmospheric. The scene where Nick wakes up in the middle of the night and first spots a zombie is tense. And being in the middle of nowhere, disconnected from the rest of the world with no one to turn to for help, added to the creepiness.

At the beginning, C.M. Saunders takes time to establish the characters, and although some may find that part slow, I found their relationship and discussion of Michael Jackson interesting. Since Nick and Maggie were well-developed I cared about them and found the story more interesting.

The Confederate zombies in Dead of Night were a little different than other zombies in fiction. They were more intelligent and were armed with guns - and could actually use them. Making Nick and Maggie's fight for survival even more challenging and exciting.

My only complaint is that, as most horror characters, Nick and Maggie made some stupid mistakes. But I suppose if they didn't this novella would only be 10 pages long.

Dead of Night is a quick, suspenseful read and recommended for all zombie lovers.
