Life goes on. Something like life, anyway.
The worst of their first post-apocalyptic winter may be behind them, but the scattered enter spring with dwindling supplies. Some will fortify their current residences and double down on their scavenging efforts. Others will leave all behind to journey into the unknown.
But violence and death wait behind all corners in the empty world. Every crossing of paths turns to conflict. Every choice carries the weight of life and death.
Not all will survive these encounters.
Throwing readers back into the post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, McBain and Vargus have exuded class, showing once again, just how talented this writing duo is at creating characters that sit with you well after the last page. There's something classic about their style. Their stories glow with well thought out storylines that bring their characters to life. Simple exchanges between characters coupled with scenes of basic survival make this series memorable and is exactly why this duo are on their way to literary success.
Four books into this series (Check out the others here) and the story is only getting better. This novel follows the journey of the characters we have grown to love (or hate) and takes the story further into this post-apocalyptic world. One of the most enticing themes of this series is the take on people perception of others, particularly, how each character views others. What may be even more noteworthy is the way McBain and Vargus force the reader's perception of these characters a certain way, making me wonder: Do I really know anything about these people?
This series has everything you want. Engaging scenes that steal you, characters that you'll never forget, time hops from the beginning of the end all the way through to years after the apocalypse, six degrees of separation.
And zombies. The whole package.
Forget what you know about the overdone zombie apocalypse. This series has re-invented the genre. This series, and particularly this instalment, is bold. Edge of your seat exciting. Well written and everything the post-apocalyptic genre needs.
