Why I became so invested in the story? I don’t know, other than evil,horrible bad guys, who were truly violently psychopathic, & I needed to know if truth and justice overcame evil. It really may sound silly but the story gets so very violent That I had to take a few breaks for a little respite. Now I am a former EMT, & disaster responder,use to dead bodies,guts, entrails, blood, sweat, & tears but the graphic violence was too much. It certainly isn’t what I would call YA science fiction & I would not recommend this to the high school set. The violence very graphically described extreme violence toward women, & I would not knowingly purchase a book enmeshed in rape culture.
That said, I became so invested in the story, wanting good to prevail. I certainly am not the target demographic this was written for. I would have given this a 5 star rating if it wasn’t for the graphic violence. I think many women would find the novel offensive.
The writing is sharp and flows very well. I found myself zipping through this book incredibly quick because of Baker's strength in creating vivid, easy to read chapters with nice touches of imagery and a strong choreograph of action scenes.
The story itself hit the mark. Considering that the Angels are trying to transport the vaccine to the Government in Exile, you'd imagine that the story would get a lot more intense, and it certainly doesn't disappoint in that regard. The story splits into two tales, that of the Angels trying to reach the Government, and that of Robson's group dealing with a nasty compound of bad-dudes. You can really feel the wider scope of things while reading about the Angel's journey, and yet the other story-arc with the "Rape Gang" is personal, and shows more of the horrors of everyday survival. Great job on Baker's part balancing two very different toned storylines without conflicting tone or pace. The only issue I had with pacing was that the very end of Rape Gang storyline felt rushed, and the book didn't really feel tied up at the end.
A few issues I had with the story, but nothing major. I was a little irked with the constant use of "The Rape Gang" to label the bad guys. Rape Gangs in zombie apocalypse stories are a bit of a cliche, but Baker added some originality to it with some neat concepts of how the gang used the slaves beyond just the rape. However, the overused "Rape Gang" moniker really downplayed some of the originality he put into that part of the story.
Characterization felt a little thin at times, but good story and strong writing made up for it.
My biggest issue with the book was the lack of Vampires. The author teased and hinted at the vamps becoming much more involved with the story and bringing that original element back into the fold, but he didn't follow through as I hoped. Fortunately, I'm under the impression that the hinting of their involvement is more of a sublte lead-in for Book 3, but I felt he could have included a bit more involvement near the end to at least make me more pumped than I already am for book 3.
The last thing I need to address. The last 3rd of the book was FANTASTIC. If it wasn't for the taut, action packed ending I would have easily given this book a 4. The climax of both storylines occuring at the same time really brought the story to a breakneck pace, with some very satisfying human vs human, and human vs zombies battles. The Angels' climax was just kickass to the 10th degree. I didn't think that Baker would be able to top the Zombie battle scene in the tunnel, but he sure as hell did with great skill.
I really don't know how Baker is going to top the action in Book 3, but I'm excited as hell to find out.
