Now I am hopelessly entranced and captured by this amazing, intriguing, and constantly expanding universe that pulls bits and pieces from the best elements of pop culture and awesome literature from the last few decades and somehow, inexplicably, weaves them into a story line that keeps me coming back for more.
Just when I start to think some new portion of the story is getting cheesy or drawing from something that initially makes me think "Really? He's going there?", Cole manages to take the borrowed element and make it his own - while never desecrating the sacred original.
From the in-your-face steal/homage of the book's title to the WTF??? second half that throws you into a Terminator future, all my free time has been spent consuming and absorbing the story. The real problem is that I haven't even approached the mountain's base, let alone come anywhere near the summit.
With the constant additions to the AW universe from so many varied authors, on top of the promise of a long-running series from each tentacle of the wonderful beast, I have simply given up on any hope of alternate activity in the future. I'm hooked.
Enough fawning. This book picks up where the Red King left off and develops and grows the character base quite a bit while throwing just enough hints and pieces of the underlying story to keep you wondering exactly what's happening. Remember the first several seasons of LOST? Yeah, like that.
Will Frank ever accept Holiday again? Will Holiday stay sober? Will he and Ash ever get together? Who the hell is Ritter, really? or Braddock? or Mr. Steele? What is Terragon? How the hell did one author pull together a zombie apocalypse, a nuclear apocalypse, and a Skynet/Terminator/Judgement Day apocalypse into a single story line? HOW??? And amidst all of this awesomeness, how did I wind up rooting for a special needs child with a homemade Batman costume as the hero? So many questions that I can't die without knowing the answers to...
The Dark Knight is more than just a zombie story with heart, it is also an Apocalypse Weird novel, and boy did this get weird. It became a little bit Terminator there in the middle of Cory's storyline, and at first I thought it halted the pace, but once Cory became involved with the new point of view characters, I enjoyed the added twist of how bizarre this world is. It will no doubt add to the suspense and mystery in future stories. This series is an instant buy and read as soon as the next book comes out.
