The thing that jumped out at me most about Bruns’s book is his masterful creation of complex characters. White hats are hard to find in this book, not because there aren’t good characters, but because those characters aren’t simplistically drawn. They’re complicated. They’re human. But at the end of the day, they’re noble at heart and step up to do what needs to be done. Trent, the principal protagonist, is chosen by fate and forged by circumstance into a reluctant but willing hero. And Karma, a woman who’s as good at kicking ass with a blade as Michonne from The Walking Dead, is a terrific foil (and complement) to Trent. Add a child-aged Kwai Chang Caine, and you’ve got the core cast ready to fight evil.
Relatable characters, exotic locales: The Seal Bearer is a great addition to the Apocalypse Weirdverse.
Trent Baird is on a business venture to Singapore when the zombie apocalypse starts. Martial law kicks in and craziness ensues. Trent meets a girl named Karma as he seeks safety. When she notices a unique tattoo on his chest she insists that he is the key to ending the madness, though Trent is sure he isn't.
After hearing of a safe place 1000 miles away over the mountains Trent sets out a journey of freedom and safety as he seeks his refuge. During this journey he learns more about himself and his purpose in life than he ever would have believed. Evil is after him, he is the Seal Bearer, and he must defeat the coming darkness.
5 Stars, I loved this book and can't recommend it enough. It is a fresh look at Zombies and I found it riveting!
This latest installment in the Apocalypse Weird series is quite action packed. The story had me hooked from the beginning. Filled with action and suspense, the main character Trent spends the book running away from the army of the Black Hand.
Remember when every Tommy Lee Jones movie featured him chasing after some bad guy? Basically the same plot in each movie, but still you are kept on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen. That is The Seal Bearer. Except we follow the guy being chased, while on his way from Singapore to a differently named Shangri-La.
Why you should read this book:
It's filled with action, told at a pace that keeps the suspense up.
Compared to some of the other books in the AW series the supernatural weirdness is kept to a moderate level. Yes there are zombies, supernatural sea creatures and army, but overall the strangeness is kept in check which I quite liked.
While more of a complete story than some of the other books, this is only part one of ? and as such is not a complete tale. Know going into the book that you will have to wait for future volumes for the story to be completed.
Working in aviation, I tend to notice errors in that realm. Airplanes don't have running lights. I'm guessing the author meant to describe the position lights on the wing tips.
This isn't a deep book. It follows one story line. It's exciting and action packed. Overall an exciting addition to the Apocalypse Weird world.
The story kept my interest and I read as much at a time as my eyes would allow, never wanting to put it down. Interesting well developed characters and a storyline that kept me guessing. Lots of action and introspection.
I highly recommend this and all of the Apocalypse Weird stories.
