Chuck Wendig is my new favorite author. I had read and loved the Miriam Black series (very excited for the new book coming out this year), but resisted Double Dead because I do not like vampire stories. After running out of other stuff I wanted to read and knowing the quality of his other books, I decided to give this a go, and am very glad I did.

This is not a vampire story in the traditional sense. It is a story about a vampire who wakes up to find that his food supply (humans) have largely bean replaced with the walking dead. The hunter must now become the protector, and the struggle that Coburn (the vampire) has with this change in his lifestyle plays out awesomely across the two Double Dead books (both of which you should read).

Coburn and his flock run into a range of awesome post apocalyptic characters, and battle it out with zombies and super zombies (the origins of which you learn about early on in book one).

In this second instalment of his Double Dead series, Wendig has done it again - he has written a darkly humorous, action-packed horror romp. It fast-paced, witty, eloquent and engaging. Just more evidence that Mr Wendig is an author everyone should read.

[Warning: There are some minor spoilers for the previous novel in the series, Double Dead.]

As the story opens, Coburn and Gil are in San Francisco, and in the middle of a zombie-attack. Coburn has been injured in the ambush, so our pair of heroes decide to split up - Gil is supposed to head to "the lab" while Coburn seeks out (relatively) fresh blood to heal his wounds. Both find their plans disrupted by more traps and hazards, not to mention awkward and potentially-deadly run-ins with the locals, living and undead.

I really love the way Wendig writes characters: they are very real and even endearing in their way, never feeling contrived and always displaying a slight twist to standard character types and tropes. Even Coburn, the vampire who thinks of humans as little more than happy meals on legs, feels real. A real a$$hole, true, but real nonetheless. That being said, the events at the end of Double Dead have had a lasting, positive impact on his character. He's less critical of humans, for a start, and his outlook on life is just a shade sunnier (perhaps a result of his newfound ability to walk in the sun...).

"Creampuff" remains a delightfully silly name for the pet of a vampire, even if he is a rat terrier. He also provides some of the more amusing moments in the novel. As with all of his characters, Wendig has imbued the dog with a lot of personality.

Kayla's influence on Coburn is pretty strong and, at times, manages to soften the vampire.

Great way to spend the drive from northeastern Pennsylvania to New York City. Was able to read it in one sitting and it definitely advanced the plot. Am looking forward to seeing what happens next... Hopefully something is happening next, right? Lots of loose ends need to be tied up, and I'd love to see them somehow put Kayla's spirit in another girl/woman's body to bring her back to life, if possible.

And I want to know what the secret Gil shared with Coborn really means for to the entire series.

If you haven't read Chuck Wendig, then you need to crawl out of your sensory deprivation compartment and join the real world. Chuck's writing is visceral and exciting. You won't want to put the book down, I promise. His characters are fully realized and likable, despite all their flaws.

Definitely creepy and effective, this novella answers some of the questions I had from the first book.

The thing i liked most was that this fills out the story and explains a little about Coburn's origins. I'm sad that it wasn't longer, but it was fulfilling, creepy, and darkly humourous--a perfect cookie-sized serving of Wendig.

Anyone who wants to write a vampire series should pick this and its big brother up for sure.

I really enjoyed this book. Mr. Wendig had me laughing p out loud in more than a few places. While he certainly won't win a Pulitzer for this book, I enjoyed his style of writing. The premise was so unusual and inventive, that I also read the short, follow up story. And still I want more from him on this character..

Good summer read.

It's been awhile since I read Double Dead but this short story made me remember why I liked the first one so much. The main character develops a bit more and the story line moves a bit farther along, like an episode of a TV series. I'd buy these quick reads all day long.

This should have been part of the first book, but I see why it wasn't. Not that great of a sequel, and I wouldn't recommend following this up either. First book was good enough with a good story that should have been left at that. Or better yet, make a series of stories of how different monsters live in the zombie apocalypse.
