Hero For Hire Review...

Hero for Hire
Tales from Beyond the End #1
By: Merissa McCain & Margaret Madigan
Lyrical Press
Releasing October 1st, 2013

One day her prince would come…disguised as a zombie-killer.

Having been disgraced and tossed out by her own scientific community, Gwyn is convinced she can develop a cure for a SuperVirus that has turned the Infected into zombies. By pure luck and determination, she has survived on her own for years, but while out scavenging, a clash with the local zombies leaves her potentially infected. Now, running out of time, she needs help and takes a chance on a hero for hire.

Rafe loves the apocalypse. Since the world went to hell, everything’s come up roses for him. Having procured a mansion in the Hollywood hills, adopted a slew of homeless boys and one cantankerous but useful Doc, Mr. Charming is benefiting from the nasty zombie infestation. His job? Killing the bastards, which he considers fun anyway.

Gwyn Snow needs Rafe Charming to help retrieve her research from the Paragon Pharmaceuticals lab, also known as Zombie Central. Believing she can yet save the world, Gwyn makes Rafe question what’s right and what’s worth the fight.

CONTENT WARNING: Prince Charming, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves as you’ve never seen them before.

By Kayla:

I was given a copy of Hero for Hire for an honest review. When I started reading this book I had no idea what it was going to be about. It definitely had a different twist to Snow white and the seven dwarves. I actually grew to love the book once I got into it. I think this book was well written and has a lot of personality. Who would have thought that Gwyn would find the love of her life during the apocalypse? That’s not the first place I would look. Gwyn and Rafe’s relationship is anything buy conventional. It’s a fun, different love story. This book was really good and not what I expected at all.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 STARS.

My name is Merissa McCain. I grew up in the African bush, without T.V, and often without electricity. I now live in the deep South, with my very own superhero, and my three minons.

 Together, we attempt to take over the world.
When not otherwise occupied with planning world domination, I love to read, write, drink strong coffee and eat dark chocolate--not necessarily in that order and sometimes all at once.  I'm a voracious reader, and will devour any type of good fiction I can get my hands on, but I'm particularly partial to happy endings.

I write with a partner (Margaret Madigan) and on my own. We love to hear from our readers, so please shoot us an email at or

Hi. I'm Margaret Madigan. Or M.K.D. Bail, depending on what literary genre we're talking about.
I live in the vast Northern Plains where it’s quiet and mostly empty, and very conducive to letting my imagination run wild. As a result, I have difficulty focusing on just one genre of storytelling. Of course, I love romance, so I write a lot of that, but I also write science fiction, a bit of horror, and dabble in other genres just for the fun of it.

When I’m not writing you’ll find me in a college classroom teaching English, or working as a literary agent for an amazing agency…and of course enjoying time with my family
