hard as nails narrative, good interplay with the characters. Doesn't hold my hand in the dark. That's mean! I like it...

Human Resources sets a cracking pace from the get-go and doesn’t let up. This book doesn’t draw you in, instead it reaches out, grabs you by the throat and drags you deep into its terrifying story.  You will both identify with the characters and be hugely grateful that you don’t live in their world. Robert Batten has written a gem and one most definitely worth buying.

Human Resources is a rapid pace narrative with engaging characters that pull the reader along with the story. From the very start, the author gives just enough to go on, set the tension of the scene, then it's off to the races. The reactions and actions of the characters so far make me want to know what's going on and I look forward to reading more.

When I saw that the premise of Human Resources was monsters saving humanity from an apocalyptic plague by enslaving the humans as a sustainable food source, I was intrigued. When I got through the heart-pounding, gut-wrenching prologue, I was hooked. When I met his cast of unique and rich characters, each with their own desires and plans, and saw them laying the groundwork for a narrative full of convoluted machinations, I was sold.Robert Batten has created something truly excellent here in Human Resources. Every scene punches hard, whether it's capturing the terror and despair of fleeing from a zombie horde or the insufferably dry (but vital) bureaucracy of board room politics. I'm intrigued by the goals of every POV character thus far, and I'll be waiting on the edge of my seat to find out what happens to each and every one of them.In conclusion: Read. This. Book. You won't regret it.

There's suspense in the strange familiarity. There's engagement in the well-paced narrative. There's a premise we may have encountered... but not without a promising twist. I can already see this on the big screens, and I would watch it.

A truly gripping beginning to a book who's premise combines the monster-movie elements we all know and love with capitalism personified. Zombies and vampires and mayhem, oh my! I can't wait to get my hands on the whole book!
Susan Hamilton
Right from the start, Human Resources pulls readers in with a crisp pace and descriptions that give you a visceral connection to Batten's world. And with no lack of twists, readers will find themselves eager to turn to the next page.
