It’s raining buckets and not letting up. Flooding is a huge concern. The command post and the city are separated by an increasingly deep flow of water.
Some zombies fall in the raging current and soldiers are sent out to retrieve. Why, you wonder? Because zombies have rights too. You can’t go around juts killing them anymore. They’re contained and fed Z rations and this keeps them calm and easier to control.
Control? Yes, they can be trained. Not a guarantee they won’t turn on you, but it seems to be working.
Even the totally dead are utilized. The soldiers fear this because, if killed, they’re taken and reanimated as Z Troopers and put back into service. Some reward for KIA, eh?
As the tanks and armored vehicles roll out, they’ll have to contend with not killing zombies, avoiding gangs of roving living out to take what’s theirs, and one strange zombie who has a particular interest in them.
I have to say this. I’m always looking for a new zombie twist, and there are several in this book. Intelligent zombies? That doesn’t sound so good. Zombie Troopers? I guess if they can take orders, they’d come in handy. A rogue zombie on a mission? Not good at all. And the feral zombies? They’re more like what you’d expect. That’s not good either. Then there are the zombies that are carrying drugs. Yep, the drug carrying mules still have the drugs in their stomachs and enterprising humans want those. Seems to me it would be easier to just kill them all. But zombies are protected. They have rights now.
The soldiers are armed with non lethal rounds in their weapons. Sometimes, they use real bullets and take some zombies down. If they kill one, they’re fined and often spend time in the brig. WTF? I told you this was different.
The mission to retrieve the fallen zombies takes a new turn and it all goes FUBAR in a torrent, just like the rain that keeps falling, falling.
What a rush this was. I didn’t realize it was the second book in the series until I received the book, but that didn’t stop me from catching on to past events and settling in with the characters quickly.
There are some fun illustrations included in the book. I always like that. And I want to mention the title. There’s more than one meaning to it and its important to me that the title connects to the story inside.
Nonstop action and obstacles to overcome make this story fly. I’m looking forward to the next mission.
I received this book for my honest review.
The book is dripping with grunge. From the endless rainy skies turning the streets into a rancid zombie stew, to Billet fighting off one heck of a flu everything made me feel dirty. Which means I felt like I was really there and isn’t that what a book is supposed to do? My only problem was that Welmerink did such a good job actually getting me to sympathize with the zombie civilians in Transport that I was surprised that there wasn’t any reason to continue supporting them in this book. There’s no sign of Bob the friendly zombie informant, instead we’re left with dangerous zombies spooked by the rain. As good military men and women get killed by the very zombies they are trying to protect I found myself siding with some of the antagonists that just want to blow them to pieces.
Not every question raised gets an answer, which is fine by me. I’m very excited to read Transport book 3: Uncivil War and get to the bottom of all of this. It does make it hard to rate though since so much is riding on the conclusion being satisfying. So I’ll tentatively give it four brains out of five. You can add a brain if Uncivil War ends up being awesome as I’m hoping and you can subtract a brain if it doesn’t give me the answers I seek.
My rating: 4 out of 5
