Fun, fast, and kind of icky (but in a good way),

This review is from: Double Dead (Tomes of The Dead) (Paperback)
This book was a fun ride through a horrifying world of cannibals, the walking (and running) dead, and religious wackos who were perhaps the scariest monsters of all.
The main character and major supporting character were richly drawn and all kinds of awesome, but a lot of the supporting cast characterization seemed to rely on stereotypes - the morbidly obese asexual geek, the catty former prostitute, etc.. Not a grievous sin, but not really the depth I was hoping for from the sample chapter.
The plot moved along at a good clip, with excellent pacing, but the vampire main character had a habit of defying the clearly set rules of his survival over and over again, and it began to get a little Road Runner-ish by the ending.
Those two small snafus aside, I thought this book was worth reading twice just because the dialog kept me grinning through the most horrific events, and the imagery was simultaneously beautiful and horrific.
