"If you're a fan of The Hunger Games or Divergent you need to grab Killshot..." -Bare Naked Words (Amazon)
"Every one always says 'I couldn't put it down' and I have always taken that with a grain of salt. But I literally never put this book down. I picked it up yesterday and only stopped to sleep!" -Nick Foster (Goodreads)
"Okay, envision that the movies The Breakfast Club (Yes, that 80's classic, don't laugh), Armageddon (I know you cried at that one, don't lie), and Resident Evil (nightmare fuel) all came together and had some crazy hybrid book child, and you will have Killshot by Aria Michaels." -JC at All is Read (Goodreads)
"I fell into the adventure so hard, I was trying to help these brave young adults in my dreams. Can't wait for the next release!"
-Marty Hamstra (Amazon)
"Fast-paced and full of AWESOME. Loved Ballistic just as much as Killshot." -L. McBee (Amazon)
"The imagery...so vivid, the attention to detail suckers punches you in the gut and leaves you breathless. You don't just read words on a page, you are transported into that world. You feel the heat of the flame, you smell the corpses; the decay. It takes over your mind, your senses. It's like watching a film play out right in front of your eyes. This is not just a book...This is art. This is a masterpiece; a piece of literacy magic that grips you and refuses to leave. And by hell is it a piece you want to submerge yourself in."
-Nicola Spears (Goodreads)
"Aria Michaels does it again as she continues the Icarus Series with more stomach dropping twists and turns than the Kingda Ka roller coaster. If you like YA, sci-fi, apocalyptic mayhem, or kick-ass action, you will find Ballistic a walk on the wild side that you don't want to miss!"
"Can someone make this into a movie?!?! AHHHH!"
"Once I read the first story I knew I was in for one hell of a wild ride."
"Pick up a copy and get introduced to some seriously talented authors!!! I loved reading the stories by Lindy Spencer, Jeffrey Clare, Aria Michaels, Chris Philbrook, & that's just to name a few! There are so many wonderful authors in this anthology you can't go wrong grabbing it... so what are you still doing here!?! GO!!"
"There are so many different takes on the zombie apocalypse and they are all pure genius. From seeing it on the news unfold at a quarantined medical facility, to watching it on a video monitor in the confines of an office and being an astronaut on the International Space Station."
"This anthology has a great variety of stories of the zombie persuasion, and all just perfect for when you want something a bit longer than a short story but not quite a novella. I found several authors who are new to me that I am definitely going to watch for. Totally recommended!"
