FLESH & BLOOD
Jerry McKinney

Two quotes will stick with you after reading this.

“Gotta take care of your own, boy.” and

“…life goes on, remember that.”

Flesh & Blood is not just another zombie story. If fact, even if you’re not a fan of the genre, you will still enjoy this short from Jerry Mckinney.

Most reviewers have compared this, in some way, to ‘The Walking Dead’ – only better!

Jessie, a young man living on the farm with his dad, has already led a hard life. When the world he knows turns upside down, he is forced to grow up quickly and face some heartbreaking decisions. To me, a great story pulls you in, tuggs at your emotions, makes you lose yourself in the Authors mind. That’s what Flesh & Blood did to me. I felt Jessie’s emotions with him, the grief of having to ‘lose’ his beloved dog, the pride in making his pa proud, the confusion & terror he felt when he first saw his friend’s dad, then his friend. Even the little crush he had on the neighbor girl, Sarah.

I would love to see a follow up story written to this. I want to see where Jessie goes, how he survives, and the man that he has become. It could lead to an excellent series! (Didja hear that, Jerry?)
