Author: Better Army Hero
4 unexpected stars
Resident Evil meets I Am Legend meets The Walking Dead. That's what automatically comes to mind when I think about Plagued by Better Hero Army. It's not a romance novel, nor is it a novel that spares any details when it comes to describing the life of the post apocalyptic world that has the human race having to deal and fight off zombies. Only some zombies have evolved and have some capacity to understand speech and can speak, known as Half Breeds. Ten years after the disappearance of his sister, Tom goes out to search for her at his father's insistence. Meeting a group of veterans, zombie hunters who know where to look and can make sure he can survive, Tom meets Kitty, a Half Breed, who just might know where to start his search and where his sister is.

This is a novel that draws you in - not because of the gore or the zombie apocalypse, but because of the attention to details, because of the way that the story plays out and how the story pulls you right in, keeping you at the edge of your seat. I was entertained by Better Hero Army's Plagued: The MidAmerica Zombie Half Breed - it had everything I look for in a dystopian, paranormal and zombie genre novels.

Gary is handing over the reins to his younger brother Tom. It will now be Tom's turn to do the twice yearly expedition to search the zombie records to find his sister Larissa. His father, a highly ranked senator, still blames Tom for allowing Larissa to be captured and bitten, even though he was just a boy at the time. Gary and Tim get to Biter's Hill along with the rest of the zombie hunters on the ferry and head to the archives. On the way they encounter many zombie traders; the zombies have all been rounded up and the venomous parts of their glands extracted in order to turn them into a workforce. Tom notices a zombie that looks a little different. A little more human. Apparently in the urge to find a cure for zombies, half-breeds were created. Not quite zombie. Not quite human. When ready to leave Biter's Hill chaos breaks out when zombies attack. Tom needs to take the people around him and get out but can't get the half-breed out of his mind. He feels an affinity towards her. Is it worth trying to save her?
I read this book in a couple of hours, it flows that quickly. It's a slightly different take on zombies with the introduction of the half-breed and hopefully the rest of the books in the series will explain more about her. The book is full of action with an entertaining style; it will be interesting to see what his father does once he finds out the dire decision Tom made. There was a continuity issue though: at the beginning of the book it says he was fourteen when Larissa was bitten but later on it says he was twelve. Other than that I really enjoyed the book for a quick read that didn't require too much concentration!
I blazed through this zombie adventure. It is character-driven with plenty of action. Two brothers set out to check sales records of three sanctioned outposts. The zombie trade is legal and business is good. They are looking for one specific zombie they haven't seen in a decade: their baby sister.
Tom still feels guilty of what happened that night a decade ago. The search for answers and hopefully a family reunion is the motivation to go into these wastelands.
It doesn't take too long for all hell to break loose and kick off the action. Tom, a half-breed, and a handful of others (seasoned hunters, traders, and tourists) need to get to a radio to call for rescue. Unfortunately, the radio is surrounded by death and destruction.
Fun read! Plenty of death. Well-done setting and characters.
