Format: Paperback
The sequel to Eden, Crusade is the second in a planned trilogy of zombie survival horror novels from Tony Monchinski. I came to this book cold, having never read Eden, so I was unfamiliar with these characters. Still, the survival story is more or less timeless, and Monchinski's prose kind of forces you into the flow of the story. It started with a fully armored titan waging all out war with the zombie hordes while blasting a classic heavy metal soundtrack, so I was pretty much guaranteed to love it!

I admit I was a bit lost in terms of the sheer volume of characters and their relationships with each other, but the book was absolutely worth the effort of learning all the new names. Monchinski does a great job balancing complex personal relationships with the greater survival/quest story, and his dialogue is very impressive. And of course there's the gloriously described zombie warfare. Monchinski's depictions are long on technical detail (you're going to learn a lot about armor and weaponry), but also have some great choreographed battle scenes. You can almost see these fights unfold before your eyes.

Obviously you're going to get more out of Crusade if you've read Eden first (and believe me, that one is going to the top of my reading list), but Crusade is a very strong zombie novel that should appeal to just about anyone who is into this kind of tale.

I feel that Eden is one of the best zombie novels I have ever read so I was looking forward to Crusade with great expectations, unfortunately they were not fulfilled. The book opens with a 25 page-long zombie battle that just gets monotonous and maybe a little silly. When that is finally over we get back to our group of friends who had left Eden at the end of the last book. The story from there on is just not very good. What the author does to Buddy, one of the best characters of the original novel is just sad. I won't say anymore but if you (like me) loved the Buddy character you will not be happy. Bear takes center stage and I like the Bear character but he really is not interesting enough to carry the book. Most of the characters meet sad and unhappy ends and it just lacks the depth and excitement of the first book and seems to just kind of ramble around until reaching a depressing conclusion. Don't get me wrong, it is still readable and probably better than most zombie fiction out there. The author can write but this book is nowhere near a good as Eden.

Format: Paperback
Tony Monchinski's EDEN:CRUSADE is a fantastic sequel. That is what you really need to know about this book above anything else. For those of you who read the first novel in this trilogy (and I am thrilled that Tony has made that commitment) and enjoyed it, you will not be disappointed by Crusade.

I know that Tony had his critiques with Eden who couldn't get over the typos. Those drones miss a helluva story. And guess what, there will be a few in Crusade. Get over it and READ the story. Tony has a very gritty, and real voice that is engaging as well as quite capable of drawing you into his world and his story.

As always, when there is a need, I make full-disclosure. Tony was kind enough to read a preview of my debut novel and pen a testimonial for the cover. He didn't know me from Adam, and was very gracious--as has been the case with many of Permuted Press' writers. But, I approached him because of reading Eden, and because I was such a fan. I still am, and shall remain. However, simply put...Tony tells a damn good story.

A lot of people lately have teed off on novels with "too many characters" in them. I have a problem with these short-attention-span book hounds. I say this because there is no shortage of characters--major or minor--in Tony's book. And each one is rich, entertaining, and vital to the advancement of his story. Sure, he could have done an entire novel solely about Bear. But where's the fun in that? Tony gives the reader a cast of people they could sink into the midst of and join vicariously in their exploits.

As is my custom, with praise comes criticism. I did get a bit flustered at the lengthy opening scene. It was a carnage fest, and it made me tired just reading it.

This book starts off with some amazing zombie warfare....it grabs you and not let you put the book down.....I even had o stop and let my son read some parts of it just to hear him say WOW......the rest of the book follows the storyline of two groups traveling in a zombie infected landscape....after the occurrences of he first Eden book. I enjoyed his book although I must admit I liked book 1 better. I'm still looking onward to the third book which is on my waiting list...

This is the continuation from Tony's Eden. I feel that this has more of a solid story. The characters are more likable and feel a little better developed. If you've read the first one you know the ending was pretty predictable. Not so much here. Give it a read.

I read and loved Eden. I could not wait to read Crusade. I was not disappointed, not even close. I love zombies and have been a fan for 30+ years. The Eden books have been by far my favorites. I highly recommend them to ALL zombie fans and fans of human nature.

Bear is an amazing character. The book is worth reading based on him alone. Keep them coming!!
