Mace of the Apocalypse is a totally unique zombie book in my view. My rating wavered between a 4 and a 5 - read below and you can decide for yourself...

The book starts with Mace and his partner Jade. They are a couple who are also bounty hunters out on a run to catch a guy with a purple mohawk who is suppose to be getting of a train in a BART station in San Francisco. Jade is at the top of the station in case Mace misses him and Mace is waiting below for him to get off the train.

Meanwhile, on the train itself, there is a foreign man with a vase of flowers and a pretty red balloon with a strange symbol on it. He is sweating and drawing attention although most of it is all smiles, thinking he is nervous about his upcoming romantic encounter. One gang banger though is suspicious because he had heard on the news earlier that several terrorist plots were stopped in NYC that involved the same strange symbol on the balloon so he is going to be a hero and stop the guy. He goes in for the kill - unfortunately, the terrorist pops the balloon, releasing the poison, everyone on the train dies, and turns into rage filled killers.

Mace sees the purple mohawk guy and is going in to arrest him when he hears all the screams - of course, purple hair guy gets eaten before Mace can get to him and all turns to chaos. Mace runs from the station to meet up with Jade and meets up with the first of the survivors that he gathers along the run to safety. Along the way, they find out that they have the "cure" and go to a hospital to manufacture more to share with others. Several characters I wanted to backhand and feed them to the infected myself - Mace is a better person than I am because I would have shoved them off the bus...

I've really got some mixed feelings over this book. I picked it up as a free purchase, so to be honest, it would be rather churlish to complain, but on the other hand, it's just not a five star effort.

From a technical viewpoint, the book was reasonably well written, minimum grammatical and spelling errors which can be so distracting and seems to be prevalent in self published books lately. From a stylistic point of view, the story starts out a little slowly, speeds up nicely, reveals secrets regularly and then builds to a crescendo. So far, so good. The problem however, is that somewhere, somehow, the story loses it's way and veers sharply into the realms of just plain stupid. I know this is a zombie story and so the reader should park their common sense at page one and leave it there, but still, I like my stories to have a little bit of internal consistency. Characters act in inexplicable ways, change their behaviour for no reason and plot devices are introduced that are so contrived it's almost painful to read.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good rainy afternoon filler, but compared to some of the other offerings in the genre it was a little disappointing.

This book starts out with a bang and never lets you go. It's a truly frightening world they find themselves living in and it's very interesting to see the different ways that people react and adjust to their new surroundings. The characters were so vivid and some of them so relatable that I found myself wanting to jump in and hang out with them (in a safe place, of course.) Or jump in and shake some sense into them in some cases! This book is frightening, sometimes extremely violent and very well written. I felt like I was along for the ride and I still find myself thinking about them and wondering how they're faring. Looking forward to the sequel!!

I have to say I was very surprised by this book. Even though I have read a small, and I do mean a very small amount of "ZOMBIE" books I can say I have never been able to SINK MY TEETH into them. But I am a huge fan of APOCALYPTIC style books. I of course putting in the magic words during a search for a book to read on my kindle "MACE OF THE APOCALYPSE" came up, (not seeing bk 1) I read the synopsis on what the book was about, and it did peek my fancy, just alone because it was not a "typical"zombie story. Well I am so very glad I did! I really would of been missing a real enjoyable story. In the beginning I found it a bit difficult to believe being in a major city, that some characters just happened to have people they knew, right behind them. Even when they had been very much apart of their life in some ways, but not were they would no locations of them during certain times. But after that it was a real eye opener, that had my eyes "red" with refusal to put the kindle down~ then I remembered TEXT TO SPEAK... Anyways, a must read,you really felt you knew each character in this book. I laughed many times, and even cursed a few times. I am just so thankful that it is Sept, and the following book will be out next month. Thank you for an enjoyable read.

When I loaded this book on my Kindle I didn't check to closely as to what it was about, so when it morphed into a full blown zombie apocalyse I almost deleted it off my Kindle. You go from two bounty hunters chasing after bail jumpers to terrorist on the BART releasing some kind of contagion, to people who have been exposed to this contagion becoming raving monsters. These monsters rip the throats out of anyone they grab hold of, infecting all those bitten, and so on and so on. The kicker is, I can't put it down. I keep right on reading. With that being said I proceeded to finish the book, even though I was repulsed by this zombie/gore fest,I waded through right on to the end.

I gave this book a four star rating primarily because the first half of the book was error free, no misspelled words or typos. The last half of the book was pretty bad for mistakes, typos and misspelled words. It gave me reason to think the author either fired his editor, or was just in a hurry to get his book out there. There is a sequel coming in October and I may just read that one also, this current book ends in a definite cliff hanger.
