Best in the Series
on October 9, 2011
I believe this to be the best book in the author's series and I couldn't put it down. It continues with the Talbot family vs Eliza, the "Queen" of the Zombies and her unfortunate brother Tomas. Mark has added a few new characters to the mix and you never know if they are going to be like the "5th" crew member on Star Trek that they just have along to kill off or if they are going to make it through the book. Mark's writing has grown as his characters have grown.
The Talbot gang are just trying to survive the zombie infection but Eliza has other plans. Instead of running and hiding, the Talbots decide to find her. On the way they make a few friends, make a few enemies and are always in danger of zombie attacks. Seems the zombies have learned to adapt. The climax of the story is when they rush to rescue some long lost friends. Eliza and Tomas make their appearance with several hundred zombies. Did I mention they can both control the zombies with their minds. It comes down to Mike Talbot vs. Eliza and her large mean henchman. How will Mike survive? Will this group of survivors make it out? Will cranky old Mrs. Deneaux smoke her last cigarette? You really won't see it coming so I guess you'll just have to read the book.
Just a note about the author, Mark Tufo. If you will notice all the names in the front of the book, these are some of his dedicated fans. How cool is this to have our names listed. What is even cooler is he had a contest on Facebook, yes, you can find him there. (If you like his books look him up.) He choose 4 fans and wrote them into his book as characters. And yes, I am proud to be one of the survivors. Thanks for the Uzi Mark...you are awesome. I love the back story and the set up for the next book. What are you up to Mark?
