This latest offering from author W.J. Lundy goes to show that zombie, excuse me, primals, can still be scary, so the date of release is no coincidence. Just like any great Halloween scare, this book will grab you up and not let go. The monsters here are strong, fast, and unfortunately seem to be getting smarter as we follow Brad, Sean and Brookes on yet another madcap adventure. Unlike many books in this genre, OTDLF takes place in parts of the world unfamiliar to most of us, and this sense of dislocation only serves to make the shocks more jarring. Mr. Lundy has great skill in describing the scene and making you feel like you are right there in the wind and dirt.
There are some truly frightening scenes, especially aboard the offshore platform, and at times we see even the normally unflappable SEALs seem momentarily at a loss as to their next step. These characters are three dimensional and human, with mortal weaknesses and moments of indecision, and I really like some of the new characters added at the beginning. I don't want to give any spoilers here but the overall story gets moved forward significantly in this book. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the next installment. Bring it on.
