Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Not to be confused—really, really not—with John Sayles’ classic 1988 baseball movie Eight Men Out, this is a thrilling debut novel, set during the American Civil War and featuring airships, flying bicycle-like contraptions, massive vehicles that walk on stilt-like legs, a flamboyant circus impresario, a fiendishly clever (and distinctly megalomaniacal) villain, some plucky heroes, and a supersecret scientific outpost with some very unusual inhabitants. Oh, and zombies. Did we mention this is not your ordinary Civil War story? Here’s the premise: due to a recent zombie outbreak, the Union and the Confederacy have put the war on hold and joined forces to deal with the living dead. The book features characters from both sides, and we follow them as they converge on the mysterious Outpost Two Thirteen, where they hope to find the key to disposing of the chewers—as they call the zombies—once and for all. But what they find will shock and terrify them, while absolutely delighting the book’s readers. This is a wonderfully written and gutsy novel, the kind of story that could easily have fallen flat on its face, if not for its author’s storytelling skills: he makes us believe a whole lot of completely unbelievable things all at once (especially one really unbelievable thing, even more unbelievable than the zombies). It’s impossible to say this too strongly: this steampunk-horror-historical-thriller crossbreed is an amazing book. Word of mouth could turn this from an under-the-radar debut novel into a genre-busting cult classic. Get on board now. --David Pitt
