It's not a good thing when you start feeling remorse at spending $3.99 by the second chapter. I love zombie stories and have forced myself to finish even awful ones. This book was a struggle for me to finish and I had to think really hard about giving it 2 stars. Disclosure - I've stopped reading at 2/3 through and haven't been able to force myself to pick it back up yet.
Jack Wallen is not a bad writer. He just needs to think through his plot planning more and hire an editor to fix the continuity on his story. There were plot issues in the first book that I forgave but they were really bad in this sequel especially when it referenced the first book. It was like reading Swiss cheese because you can drive a tank through the logic or action every other chapter. The characters really failed in this sequel so the plot problems are more noticeable.
Plot: Super girl hacker, Bethany Nitshimi, escaped to Paris after the death of her lover, Jacob. She's pregnant with a hybrid zombie/human and has an encrypted file that may have the cure to the zombie situation. She's interacting with the world through a blog that she posts on the internet. Bethany is trying to stay alive long enough to find the cure.
PROS: Descriptive zombie fight scenes (just suspend any logic and ignore impossibilities). Zombie Radio - internet streaming show talking about zombies by survivors.
MAJOR SPOILERS ALERT -
CONS: The setup failed within the first two chapters. It took Bethany and her group a week to reach Paris from Munich because of massive hordes of undead and crowds of rioting humans. However, as soon as they entered Paris, there's nothing there. No undead roaming, no large group of humans. They waltzed into a hospital and simply started living there.
Bethany's first priority is to set up servers to check her email and post her blog. FAIL. They didn't bother to clear or check the hospital for any zombies or other humans until later. I don't know about you but there is no way that I wouldn't check every single inch of that hospital and locking things down before I even rest. After fighting for my life for several weeks through ZOMBIES, I would be super paranoid.
Bethany's super hacking skills come from downloading programs from a hacker forum. My opinions keep going down.
After being attacked by a zombie in their room, the group finally decided to check out the hospital. Well, zombies and humans are in there. All the food had been stolen and hoarded by someone that Bethany saw running around. So Bethany decided that, oh well, we'll just ignore the hostile human or humans in the hospital. Let's pretend they don't exist and don't tell anyone else in the party.
They trapped 5 zombies in the stairwell because there's apparently nothing in the hospital that can be used as a weapon. Have you ever been in a hospital? There's a ton of things that can be used vs. a scalpel. Heck, looking around at my office, I can see at least 3 items: trash can to hold off zombie, power strip and chair leg for my partner to smash the skull to bits.
Then they decided that they've done enough and don't need to check out the rest of the hospital. Of course, this means that someone gets killed later by going alone to a different floor that has not been cleared to take a shower. Why can't you take a shower in a room next door. Every hospital room has a shower.
Almost every chapter has stupid setups like this. For example, Bethany and Gunther barely survived a trip outside to get food yet two days later, she decided to send out 2 survivors unarmed. What was the purpose? She wanted a gourmet French dinner. These 2 young French survivors had to go out shopping. Needless to say, that didn't end well. The group flip flop between starvation (in a hospital with a food court) and wanting gourmet meals to raise their spirits. Apparently, this hospital didn't have snacks at the nurse stations like all US hospitals.
Sorry Bethany, for someone with an IQ higher than most Mensa's members, you're super stupid and lacking in basic common sense. I would put my faith in a paranoid 14 years old zombie geek over you.
Next are the MAJOR plot fails:
The virus was created by a physicist (Dr. Godwin - let's not talk about how difficult that is). He vaccinated himself and Susan (his fake daughter) before the release and yet they both got infected (from 1st book). In addition, Dr. Godwin created a cure just in case and left a message that he left clues about it on the CDC website. However, this man who created both the virus and the cure couldn't figure out how to synthesize the cure to save himself after he turned into a zombie. (In the first book, he was frantic and had no clue about the virus - now in the sequel, he seemed to know everything and put them in a riddle.)
By the way, Bethany can't figure out the difference between a vaccine and a cure. The idea keeps switching back and forth.
Susan, the fake daughter, is actually the child of a powerful US senator who lets her 10 years old daughter travels alone to Paris with a maniacal, money/power mad physicist so she can watch him commit mass murder on the entire country of Germany. It just happened that he killed most of the world. Oh yes, he spread the virus through a quantum fusion generator. Yep. It makes perfect sense.
I started talking to myself a lot while reading this book. The main phrases were: really? seriously? how stupid! and fail!
A band of highly resourceful survivors find themselves facing horrors unlike anything the world (or the average zombie fan) has ever seen. Bethany, the lead female character from the first book finds herself thrown into the role of leader in this next leg of the journey.
Faced with protecting her small group against the overwhelming odds of a world swarming with flesh-eating monsters, she takes on the enormous task of saving what remains of the human race. Bethany is a dynamic heroine with a brilliant mind and powerful blend of courage and humanity necessary to survive and succeed in the nightmare that the world has become. As she learns the horrifying secrets behind the virus that has decimated humanity, a threat even more menacing than the zombies emerges.
I jumped into this book feet first, immediately after finishing the first one because this breathtaking story simply couldn't wait. Jack Wallen is a brilliant writer who holds nothing back. The suspense that began with the first book continues to build with non-stop action and frightening revelations that weave an increasingly intricate tapestry of a tale. Just when you think you know how the plot is going to go, the author adds yet another exciting twist. And of course, there are zombies. Lots of them, and ones more terrifying than you could imagine. This trilogy is truly the best of the best - the cream of the zombie crop!
This one pretty much picks up where I Zombie I left off and what can I say? I was blown away. Bethany and Co. decide to hole up in a hospital once they get to Paris but they realize the situation is the same there as it was in Germany. People who you have bonded with die and the zombies have experienced a kind of metamorphosis. There isn't just one kind of zombie they are fighting but several different kinds and that is what makes this series so unique.
There are trials and tribulations not to mention Zombie Radio which had me laughing out loud. The action lets up but even the quiet moments pull you in and make you think what life would be like in this kind of environment.
Before the story ends, the gang is uprooted from France to New York City and there is even more action before the conspiracy is revealed and all I can say is whoa! I'm just glad I already had Die Zombie Die (I Zombie) on my Kindle. Great job, Mr. Wallen, and I can't wait to see where else you take us with this series.
