Holiday, the main character, is a alcoholic and a screw up, but he is still alive. When he teams up with a man sown the street and a girl they come across, they find out they all have secrets, but they all work well together. Until the night Holiday just has to go to the liquor store and leaves the gate open.
This is a fast paced, action packed, awesome, and I can not wait for the next one to come out, I know The Dark Knight is out, but I had the audio and would really like to continue that way since it was so good. The narrator Guy Williams is so good, the voices for the different characters was phenomenal as was his skill to draw you into the story just like you were there fighting and running from the zombies as the bullets were flying. He was so great that why I want to wait and I hope he will continue to do more of the Wyrd series.
The world that Cole has created is incredible. It tips a hat to MMORPG’s, Zombie flicks, shows like The Twilight Zone and Lost, and many other current popular media titles bringing them altogether in a massive cluster of WTF!
Do yourself a favor, grab a copy of TRK and hold on tight. It's about to get WYRD.
I DO want to find out what happens next. There are a lot of good characters and story to unravel. But, there is one thing that I foresee may keep me from advancing to book 3: we must find out where a certain set of footprints leads. I'm willing to give the author a chance, but, have my doubts about how this may develop.
I noted an overabundance of detail in one chase-battle scene. I don't mean too much gore -- there is plenty of that -- but, details getting in the way of the telling. I found myself skipping a line here, a few more there, etc., just to move it on.
I've consumed my fair share of zombie fare. But, I've never seen the commonsense theory that Frank puts forth, to Holiday and Ash, that, absent some stimulus, zombies are likely to gravitate downhill. Such a simple idea adds freshness to the genre.
Kicking off like your typical Zombie Apocalypse story, we soon see that there's a lot more going on that anyone can expect. The strength of the novel is in the characters and all their secrets, which are slowly revealed as survivors (some of which have some deadly and treacherous backgrounds) are forced to work together to create a fortified 'castle' to stand against the horde, and the survivors either rise to the occasion...or not.
Soon it becomes clear that strange and supernatural monstrosities are active, and our survivors go from proud fortress-dwellers to ants cowering in a burrow, afraid of a stomping foot.
The series is inspired heavily and obviously by such series as LOST, Stephen King's Dark Tower, and The Terminator, but this franchise is determined to deliver a stunning payoff.
