“Jeremy is a pretty impressive dude.”
— Peter Straub, New York Times Bestselling Author, A Dark Matter, Ghost Story

"RABID HEART maintains a sharp, persistently moving narrative of the protagonist’s personal quandary and eventual flight. It’s immensely fun, and Rhonda Driscoll dishes out one-liners with panache…an endlessly entertaining zombie tale that checks off genre conventions with style."
— Kirkus Reviews

— PW Author Spotlight

"RABID HEART, feels like a crowning achievement, anchored by an inspiring, salt-of-the-earth female protagonist as it brings the heart and horror in equal measure."

— Peter Blauner, NY Times bestselling author of The Intruder and Sunrise Highway

A page-turner that avid horror aficionados will be drawn to with glee."
