I am a huge fan of zombie novels and was beyond excited to dive into this collection. The description was intriguing (zombies, Muslim extremist taking over the world, even pirates) and the reviews positive (4 out of 5 stars). What could go wrong?
How about dialogue, editing and plot? The dialogue was so simplistic and contrived I thought many times I was reading a parody of a serious novel. The editing was embarrassing (weird spacing, misspelled words, several instances of double-commas [,,]). And the plot holes were big and numerous. A member of the team is infected by the zombies but is saved by having his arm hacked off; however, when another member of the group is scratched on the wrist during the final battle, the team just stands around the argues over who is going to have to put her down... Just cut off her arm and move on, it worked last time!
And don't get me started on the perfectly timed submarine arrival...
I'm all for up and coming authors getting their chance to be heard (I loved the The Remaining series by DJ Molles, Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End and the Project Eden books by Brett Battles) but this felt like a first draft...
This was a fast paced book. A little slow in the beginning, but Griffin was building the store, he was preparing you. Tenderizing you. The story line is solid, intriguing and gripping.
The government has created a synthetic drug that is `safe' for a high - how can this go bad? Right? After ingesting the `safe' drug the people turn into feeders/zombies. They destroy every human in their path. There is no escape, once bitten you are doomed. Our enemies build on the weakened state of affairs in America and plot to take over. They plan on destroying us with the feeders as their weapons. They have made the feeders in something else, something they can control. Is it too late for the American's?
This is where the story gets good and you start to wonder, could this really happen? Would they really do this? OMG are they doing this to us! Holy crap! No way! There are spies, there are plots, there are willing volunteers.
As much as I enjoyed this book, I do have to say I would have loved to have seen the characters be more developed. Mason was well written, you knew where he came from, you knew where he stood. The main female character; I really didn't like her at all. She could have been left out and the story would have been better, in my opinion. The dialog between some people seemed harsh or unnecessary at times, almost like filler.
I will definitely be on the look out for the rest of the books in this series.
The story takes place in a quarantined Miami with young adults trying to make their way through the city, constantly fighting of the Feeders. They lose a few people; and gain a few on the journey to Camp Freedom where they hope to be safe. Unfortunately they discover they have bigger problems the Feeders. Other world powers taking advantage of Americas collapse and invaded hoping to divide the country between them. They also have to deal with pirates kidnapping all their women! The book is broke down in episodes and you can definitely see this as an action packed series with strong characters. Well worth the price! I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will be watching out for the show version!
The unique storyline, pitting world powers against each other, made for an entertaining and well thought out novel. The introduction of "super" zombies was a great addition.
What would have made this story even better for me would have been more character development. I didn't have any feelings one way or the other for any of the group characters. Their interactions seemed forced and they often said things that seemed off base, especially the main female character. She wasn't relatable at all. However, the military interaction and dialog was dead on. I actually liked those parts a lot more than I thought I would.
If you're a zombie fan, this is one worth adding to your TBR list.
