The heroes are strong but flawed and the monsters are both terrifying and almost sympathetic at the same time. I am very curious to see where the author next takes us in her Zombie Bedtime Stories series, although I have a feeling it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better...however, that's a good thing for us readers! I look forward to the carnage ahead.
Also, the writer has given more information and well developed more of her Zombie Bedtime Stories world, as well as hidden some easter eggs in the story, something I personally enjoy. If Thea reads these reviews, I sure hope there will be more Zombie Bedtime Stories coming soon! :P
Now, I felt the story itself stayed in the well traveled plane of modern zombie fiction. Nothing in the plot lines stood out but everything was well done so it remained enjoyable. One thing that did happen was a couple of looks at the main character. There was what appeared to be a hinting of sexual tension that wasn't given time to mature. I personally think it could have been explored but that would have required the group to remain in-tact and in location so I can see why this didn't happen. The rate of infection really suggested that this should have been ignored.
The other look I could have done without. There was time spent on the more mundane elements of the facility director's job. In the beginning of a zombie apocalypse I realize that many people would continue to attempt to handle business as usual but I just don't want to read about it. This is a small complaint since it was also a small element of the story.
So, how would I rate the book? It might surprise you but the answer is better than the first. While "Locked In" had a better overall plot and a fresher take on the genre than "Locked Out" did there is a noticeable difference in the quality of the writing between the first and second. You get a feeling of the author's style having matured that was impressive. I still have the third book to read and review but I am hoping to see this trend continue.
A good read. You should give this four out of five star work a try. If you aren't a fan of zombies, The Zombie Bedtime Stories just might convert you.
