In this second instalment of his Double Dead series, Wendig has done it again - he has written a darkly humorous, action-packed horror romp. It fast-paced, witty, eloquent and engaging. Just more evidence that Mr Wendig is an author everyone should read.

[Warning: There are some minor spoilers for the previous novel in the series, Double Dead.]

As the story opens, Coburn and Gil are in San Francisco, and in the middle of a zombie-attack. Coburn has been injured in the ambush, so our pair of heroes decide to split up - Gil is supposed to head to "the lab" while Coburn seeks out (relatively) fresh blood to heal his wounds. Both find their plans disrupted by more traps and hazards, not to mention awkward and potentially-deadly run-ins with the locals, living and undead.

I really love the way Wendig writes characters: they are very real and even endearing in their way, never feeling contrived and always displaying a slight twist to standard character types and tropes. Even Coburn, the vampire who thinks of humans as little more than happy meals on legs, feels real. A real a$$hole, true, but real nonetheless. That being said, the events at the end of Double Dead have had a lasting, positive impact on his character. He's less critical of humans, for a start, and his outlook on life is just a shade sunnier (perhaps a result of his newfound ability to walk in the sun...).

"Creampuff" remains a delightfully silly name for the pet of a vampire, even if he is a rat terrier. He also provides some of the more amusing moments in the novel. As with all of his characters, Wendig has imbued the dog with a lot of personality.

Kayla's influence on Coburn is pretty strong and, at times, manages to soften the vampire.

Tongue in cheek humor from beginning to end.
I've read all the books in this series, and found them to be quite entertaining.

Great way to spend the drive from northeastern Pennsylvania to New York City. Was able to read it in one sitting and it definitely advanced the plot. Am looking forward to seeing what happens next... Hopefully something is happening next, right? Lots of loose ends need to be tied up, and I'd love to see them somehow put Kayla's spirit in another girl/woman's body to bring her back to life, if possible.

And I want to know what the secret Gil shared with Coborn really means for to the entire series.

This novella follows the continued adventures (mishaps?) of the vampire Colburn who awoke in New York to find himself surrounded by zombies.

After the events in Double Dead, Colburn in in California looking for medical facilities that can duplicate his blood. He thinks he may have a cure for the zombie apocalypse.

If you've read Double Dead, you definitely need to pick this book up and see where the story goes. If you haven't read Double Dead yet, get both books.

Chuck's style and voice carry over into this novella. Can't wait to see where he takes the story with the next book.

Definitely creepy and effective, this novella answers some of the questions I had from the first book.

The thing i liked most was that this fills out the story and explains a little about Coburn's origins. I'm sad that it wasn't longer, but it was fulfilling, creepy, and darkly humourous--a perfect cookie-sized serving of Wendig.

Anyone who wants to write a vampire series should pick this and its big brother up for sure.

Excellent series that covers a unique take on Zombies by throwing vampires in the mix. If you're like me and have wondered "but what happens to the Vamps when the zombies take over?" than this book is perfect for you! I'm so glad that Chuck wrote these books! Read all of them. they are a quick read and you can easily read one or two on a weekend.
