This is the first book of the series and accomplishes little more than to introduce the story’s main characters. It’s well written, carefully paced, with well-set stages. If I were to have a complaint, it would be with the efficiency of the zombies. True, they are intelligently controlled, but they are still just shambling around. The protagonists couldn’t stop to sneeze without a zombie jumping out of nowhere at them, no matter how remote to location. That is unless the evil entity was teleporting them, which I suppose is possible. It seems pretty powerful/magical/evil. And as well, it makes for literally non-stop action.
Buy it. I think you’ll enjoy this, especially if you’re in to zombie action. This is professional level work
My true rating for this falls somewhere between 2 and 3, but I rounded up to 3 because of the unique details.
Now, this book had a great story line. Zombies with a brand new take, and losses that most stories avoid. And it's a terrifying concept! Not only can you not kill them by "traditional" means, but there's an entirely new evil entity behind the scenes! The characters are pretty cool (Peter is my favorite so far, and Tony... watch out for that kid, Dunn & Co!), and I feel like we'll see a lot more character development in them in the future.
I wasn't able to get connected or attached to any of them, though. For example, there were 2 certain deaths that normally should have had me in a mass of tears, but I barely got misty eyed. Why? Glad you asked, potential reader! There were a lot of uncommon words used. A LOT. And I don't mean words that just don't come up naturally in conversation when you're sitting around BSing, I mean words that you might truly only hear once or twice EVER. That in and of itself is not necessarily a bad thing, but it felt like they were thrown in to make it sound smarter. However, they were far too often used incorrectly. Example: There is a passage where Area 51 is discussed, and it was called a divergent. I think the author meant to use diversion, as the former doesn't actually quite fit the sentence. I could be wrong, but either way it felt wrong. Things like this and the changing portal to the helicopter made it feel a bit clunky, and really pulled me out of the story. I feel like a decent editor could polish this baby up and make it so much better.
These issues aside, I am looking forward to reading the next installment. I think it can only get better, and I am interested to see what happens next. I think this bad guy could end up being terrifyingly evil!
