Mason Jones is a good, strong character, and as the story progresses, we learn a little here and there about the Army Ranger. His development is paced nicely, and the story has enough action to keep one reading. When all hell breaks loose in the zombie testing facility, the action is non-stop, edge of your seat to the end.
Though I did the copy edit on this novella, I am always about giving honest reviews, and Better Hero Army asked if I would do so. I would definitely recommend this novella and its prequel if you’re into action-packed zombie stories. I look forward to working with Better Hero Army again and to see where he takes this story line. Even though I received this story as work, I did purchase the novella.
This is a fast-paced read that feels almost voyeuristic at times, but the presentation is suspenseful, personal, and engaging. Although this is the second book in a series, I was able to connect with the story without having read the first book. This is not highbrow literature, but it is a fun and entertaining apocalyptic read.
Army Ranger Lieutenant Mason Jones has pulled a red card and sent to finish the remaining months of his duty in a facility where zombies are being kept and experimented on. Everyone at the island has something they’ve done in their past to be sent to such a place as a punishment. When he gets put on the graveyard shift cleaning the zombie cells things immediately start going wrong.
I think if I were rating the series as a whole it would get a better rating. But that being said this book on it’s own just leaves too many questions to score a good rating for me. It started off really well with building the setting, establishing Mason as a character and giving hints to a deeper plot. The problem was that everything ended up rushed through to an end that seemed to leave a lot up in the air.
The length of the book may have been it’s biggest downfall. Too many extra background items being added in with Mason’s past, his purpose of being sent and Dr. Kennedy that didn’t get expanded upon for a short book. The overall action in the book seemed to be a bit predictable too so I was hoping for more to the plot than what I ended up with.
A quick read that gives an interesting new look into the zombie epidemic but would probably be better if picking up the other books in the series at the same time.
