One Thousand and One Nights by Ruth Browne
Sheri spends her days fighting zombies and her nights chained to a wall, earning her every breath by telling stories to her captor Aleksy—stories that make them both forget the ruined world. Sheri could put up with the conditions—at least she knows her sister is safe in the community Aleksy leads—until she realizes she’s falling for him...even though he wants her dead.When Aleksy allowed Sheri and her sister into his compound, he didn’t know about the zombie bite on her back. It's only a matter of time before she turns into one of the rising dead and threatens their existence, but Aleksy has a secret need for Sheri and her stories. For everyone’s safety, he chains her to his bedroom wall, hoping for just one more day. But how long will the community allow Aleksy to ignore his own rule: always kill the infected. Always.
Sheri will do anything to keep her sister safe. When they are lead into a community safe from the zombies lead by Aleksy she will do whatever so her sister stays. That includes being chained up at night because she was bitten. Never knowing when she will turn that is the best place for her. She tells Aleksy stories every night to help make them forget the world around them. Aleksy has already ignored his rule to kill anyone who gets bit. The community wants Sheri killed before she turns but something stops him from doing so. As she spins stories every night he begins to fall for her and now he will have to fight to keep her as long as he can.
Yes we all know I love zombie books and this is no exception. Sheri it really a bad ass female who has no problem hunting down zombies and killing them. She puts up with being treated bad by a lot of the community just for her sister. She also loves to read. Yeah I found my fictional book sister here. Even if Aleksy does keep her chained up she understands why he does so. She sees the guy underneath the leader role he holds in place.They both had different lives before the world changed but you see they have changed now. Aleksy at first I didn't think I would like but he really grew on me. I love the chemistry between the two. This gives a neat spin on an old tale and I look forward to more by this author. You get sexual tension that adds just the right touch to the book.I recommend this to anyone wanting a story about zombies, love and more.
