Book Description

When you’ve lost everything, the only thing left is vengeance.

Invaders from another world have used demonic technology to raise an unholy conquering army of the living dead. These “necros” destroyed Jubal Slate’s home and everyone he loved. Now the only thing that matters to Slate is payback. No matter how far he has to go or how many undead warriors he must slaughter, Slate and his motley band of followers will stop at nothing to end the reign of the aliens.

Dead Earth: Vengeance Road is the second (and final?) book in Mark Justice and David Wilbanks' zombie series, which tells the story of Earth in the not too distant future. A military experiment has accidentally opened a gateway to an alien world, and the aliens have wreaked havoc on Earth by unleashing a plague that changes the infected into ravenous zombies.

Zombie 411: These are your basic Romero-style zombies. They're slow, rotting, mindless, and have an insatiable appetite for human flesh. There are some differences that may turn off some traditionalists, such as the fact that a zombie bite can, but doesn't necessarily have to, turn the victim into a zombie. There's also the fact that the zombies can be controlled by alien technology. That right there is typically a deal-breaker for me, but in this case it really did add to the story.

In Vengeance Road, we meet two groups of survivors. One is a gang of thugs and bikers, led by the charismatic but very unstable Luther Kemp. Kemp has been given dominion over the undead by the alien invaders, and is on a quest to make himself the master of an undead army. The other group of survivors is led by Jubal, a young man bent on vengeance for his slain family and determined to take the fight to the enemy. Naturally these two bands cross paths, fighting a bloody path to the source of the plague - the legendary Area 51.

I missed the first book in the series (Dead Earth: The Green Dawn), but there was surprisingly little catching up to do. Jubal's band obviously had a back story, but the story in Vengeance Road didn't depend on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aliens and Zombies December 1, 2010
I have not read what I understand to be a novella that started the Dead Earth Series, entitled "Dead Earth: The Green Dawn", but the authors did a commendable job bringing me up to speed with what happened in the first story through much of this novel, without any need for a prologue. What that translates to for someone who does forgo the first book is an immediate jump into the action with a story filled with zombies controlled by an alien invasion force dubbed "Necros" (short for Necromancers), by the few surviving humans who remain.

There are two groups of survivors at the outset of this tale. One group is made up of bikers running free and trying to avoid getting eaten while roaming around the Mexican desert in Baja California. Lead by Luther Kemp, there is friction between him and another member of this ragtag gang, whose nickname is Mother...and he is one big Mother, that is for sure. Mother only wants company because there is safety in numbers, while Kemp has bigger plans. The other group is led by a former sheriff's deputy from New Mexico named Jubal Slate. Jubal is bound and determined to make his way up to Area 51 in Nevada, where the aliens apparently broke through into our dimension, started changing the atmosphere, and raising the dead to help in the take over of humanity.

It seems that those who have survived have some immunity from turning into zombies-they can be bit and survive, though if allowed to die, they to turn in the end. It is an interesting slant, and allows for a few gruesome scenes where I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

Not long into the story, Luther Kemp is bequeathed a gift from one of the Necros, who fly in glider-type machines, as his band of renegades is surrounded by a zombie horde.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Characters, More Excitement June 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Vengeance Road is the second book in the Dead Earth series by Mark Justice and David T. Wilbanks. In this installment, the main character, Jubal, takes on a lesser role as more characters are introduced. Though his role is not as prominent as it is in Dead Earth: The Green Dawn, Jubal's determination to avenge those responsible for the death of his friends and family is stronger than ever. Jubal journeys back to the United States with other survivors who have the same objective: to do all they can to hinder the aliens and their undead army, no matter the cost.

Jubal and his group are not the only ones making their way north to Nevada-- a vile group of bikers led by a twisted individual named Luther Kemp is also making the journey. This group is not seeking revenge, however. Kemp's objective is to gain followers and soldiers for the alien lords. Those who refuse to follow as one of the living are forced into service as one of the walking dead. Kemp's ability to control the dead allows him to add more "soldiers" with each town he and his group encounter.

There is a lot to like about The Vengeance Road. I'm glad the authors added more characters to the story line as compared to the first book in the series. The characters are well-developed and believable. I found the protagonists to be endearing and the bad guys to be especially scary. There is plenty of action and some very tense moments in the story, making it an exciting read. There were a couple missing paragraphs in my copy of the book, which may be due to the format in which I received it. Aside from a couple minor errors, the editing is well-done.

There are a few things I did not like about The Vengeance Road. My biggest issue with this book has to do with inconsistencies in the story line.
