I enjoyed the building of the characters in this novel as well.
Daniel Donnelly
I really enjoyed it, was interested in the characters, and enjoyed how he connected events and characters from past books.
Danny
The book even has a happy ending which I wont give away, but really leaves one feeling like there might be hope after all!

This book is fantastic! Starts you right off into the action on the very first page. The book can be read as a standalone but It is highly recommended you read atleast the first two "Dead City" and especially "Apocalypse of the Dead" since major characters make appearances.

It's set years after the initial SHTF moment when the Hurricanes destroyed the South Texas coastlines and a failed attempt at building a quarantine wall caused a countrywide (possibly worldwide althought I cant quite remember) Zombie Apocalypse.

The book is a fantastic read and is highly recommended! Since Dead City, Joe's books have gotten better and better with each release. Joe McKinney especially nailed this one!

Buy IT!! BUY IT NOW!!! along with Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead if you're a new found Joe McKinney fan!

LATER!

Joe McKinney doesn't just "do it again." This time he takes it over the top! While plenty of characters and events carry over from the last novel, Joe weaves them into "Mutated" easily and clearly so you're not wondering what you've forgotten, or not skimming through paragraphs because you remembers these important details. Without giving away any spoilers, the infection has poured out of southern Texas and zombies are now moving their way north. This novel takes place several years after the initial infection, providing fascinating thoughts about how the infection mutates. As the zombies change, so do the survivors, some of them not for the best. It's a nerve-wracking, haunting novel, made more poignant by the cast of evil-doers. If you've enjoyed the previous three novels in this series, you will love "Mutated."

I would recommend reading Dead City and Flesh Eaters (in that order) before this one. Each story builds on the prior one, although they are designed to be stand-alone. Excellent emphasis on character development, and not merely a gore-fest. Mutated, taking place several years after the first two books, takes a little too long to develop. All in all, though, one of the better series (few spelling and editing errors, realistic dialogue, etc.). Recommend for the zombie enthusiast.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Maybe I should go back and read the series in chronological order Flesheaters, City of the Dead, Apocalypse of the Dead, then Mutated. This is the chronological order but Flesheaters was published after Apocalypse and maybe that's part of the problem for me. I really liked the first three books in the series but maybe too much time lapsed between Apocalypse and Flesheaters because try as I might I couldn't get into any of the characters in Mutated. I barely cared if any of them lived or died and the zombie king completely turned me off the story.

This latest entry is by far the least interesting of the four. It's slow to develop and I was constantly left feeling like nothing had happened yet even 350 pages into the novel. To reveal my bias I prefer zombie stories that have either Romero type zombies, 28 Days Later rage zombies, or even 2004 Dawn of the Dead fast zombies. When you have zombies talking, thinking, driving cars, or using telepathy to control other zombies then you've automatically lost my interest. I'm trying not to add any spoilers in my review but in this novel there is a Red King zombie whose basically like you and me only he's homicidal, ticked off that he was a loser in high school, and somehow has the ability to control other zombies telepathically. The Red King can speak, think, plan, create intricate traps.... he's like the Vladmir Putnin of zombies.

In my opinion you're much better off re-reading City of the Dead or Flesh Eaters (the 2 best novels in this series) than wasting time on Mutated. I'm left hoping there is no 5th installment of this series.

This is the 4th book in Joe McKinney's Dead World series and although it isn't absolutely imperative to the quality of the story to skip the other 3 books, the chemistry between some of the main characters will be lost on you if you do not read them first.

I picked this book up and could not put it down. Joe is an exceptional writer and this story, as with the rest of the series, does not dissappoint! Since this is such a new book, I do not want to spoil any part of the story by going into details.

Let's just say that during the rollercoaster ride that was this story, I was at times scared, thrilled, anxious, and at other times quite heartbroken. I found it very easy to identify with and become emotionally attached to some of the characters and oddly enough, wishing otheres would get eaten.

Although the zombies appear to be on their last leg (both literally and figuratively), the older ones have begun using complicated tactics to hunt for their "food" and that in and of itself is terrifying! They are starving now and their hunger is almost tangible.

The main characters just seemed to be cursed as they rolled from one bad situation to the next, barely missing one disaster, only to land square in the next, more intense disaster! Yet, you can't help but applaud their courage. There were some very poignant scenes in the book that actually made me stop and question my own purpose in life and the direction we are all headed. A great book does that! Makes you stop and think, draws you in to the story and makes you care about the outcome. Excellent book!
