If that weren't enough, Axiom Corporation, a company that "helps" survivors shows up in full force. They are a disturbing group with creepy brain-washed-like minions more than ready to take control and restore order to the poor folks of the United States. Of course, R, Julie, and friends end up on the wrong side of Axiom. They go on the run (which honestly gets a bit boring at times.) determined to find a safe place to live.
While I really enjoyed the novel, I'm not certain that it needed to be written. Warm Bodies felt fairly complete to me. The Burning World did give us a deeper insight into R and showed us that Julie isn't as amazing as R thinks she is. (Character development!) It was also great to see more of M and Nora. I'm happy that the world and characters were expanded and fleshed out. The novel also gave us major insight into how the zombie-virus got started - which was exciting to read. I do look forward to learning more about this world and its characters.
The Burning World in particular gave us a broader understanding of the world around R and Julie and unlocked some of R's past, whereas Warm Bodies was primarily R's story and the burgeoning relationship with Julie and The New hunger was a short book with the background stories on the lead characters (don't skip this book! It's important). I think all these books, read in the correct order are a cohesive, well written series that will conclude with The Living later this year.
I am excited to read The Living, and future works by Isaac.
