Daniel J. Williams has recreated the zombie apocalypse with his new series, Mace of the Apocalypse. In book two of this series, "Value of Jade" a few months have passed since terrorists had unleashed a deadly toxin into the air that has now spread throughout the world, creating zombies that feed off the flesh of those dubiously lucky enough to have survived. Jade is now pregnant, Mace has recovered from his injuries, and a small band of survivors are now undertaking the perilous journey from San Francisco to Overland Park, Kansas to join up with another group of survivors-all based on the hope that there WILL be survivors in Kansas. Jade is determined that they go based on her brief internet communication with Sarah Thompson, a woman she has never met. Sarah has had visions, and she sees a connection between Jade and humanity's survival.
Jade and her group must face the dangers of the unknown, crazed humans, and zombies that seem to be evolving into more sentient beings on their journey. The faces of their group will change. The threat to their survival grows with every passing mile, and they do not even know what they will find in Kansas. Who will survive? What will they find? What does Sarah's vision mean for Jade?
The imagery Daniel Williams creates is amazing! From the conditions of the landscape across the country to the mental stress and breakdown of survivors, I felt like I was riding along with Jade and her group. I can't wait until book three!
