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 Red King by Nick Cole is just that book. Cole expertly weaves a smart, funny, and fast paced narrative from strands of fabric that include an epic battle between good and evil, an every-man battling his inner demons – and zombies, Special Operators fighting a seemingly un-winnable war, a shadowy Illuminati, time travel, monsters, romance, buried pasts, hippies and – whew, you need to read this book and see for yourself.
At its core, this is a zombie survival story. One of the things I loved about this book was Cole’s ability to deliver all the dread and gruesome suspense of that genre without having to resort to paragraph after paragraph of overly graphic violence-porn. I like to shower after the gym, not after reading a novel.
The Red King makes for a promising start to a the Wyrd universe, which is supposed to contained 12 books! I’m invested in Holiday and the rest of the Red King’s characters. I’ll be reading it to find out what comes next!
The thing that kept me so intrigued about this book was the author's writing style. It is very fast paced and there are always multiple things happening at once, but the author keeps you intrigued by consistently painting a perfect picture of what is going on.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves fast paced, apocalyptic thrillers, but to everyone who just loves a great book!
I was thrilled when he indicated his plans to revisit this series, and future readers will not be disappointed. The Red King, the first book in Nick's Wyrd series, sets all the wheels in motion, and it doesn't let up from page one. Holiday is a fantastic character, one that warms up to you without you even really noticing, and then all of a sudden you realize that it isn't the zombies at all. It's holiday that matters, Holiday that makes the story what it is.
And it's a great story. Highly recommended.
