Whereas Book 1 follows a clear-cut story line (albeit with many moving parts) featuring close-grained lead-character insights and many innovative touches, Book 2 combines dull dialog, verbosity about matters of little consequence, a over-complicated nest of sub-stories with interludes of fairly ordinary run-and-gun comic book action.
To me, that spells a need for a re-write to buff and polish the story; cutting out redundancy and sharpening promising...but blunt..edges.
To be honest, I started Book 2, put it aside for some reason and only remembered I still needed finish the jolly thing weeks later. (Read into that confession-cam disclosure what you will.)
The narrative and dialogue flow well and smoothly; the action is nasty, violent and gory without being overly so. The guns'n'ammo material is accurately and believably done, and the author is sufficiently descriptive without getting all carried away with adjective use.
Standard zombies are bad enough - these are worse. They retain some higher brain function and some instinct for self preservation, as well as a modicum of tactical awareness with all that that entails.
It's more than just the zombies - there's evil scumbags large and small, would-be warlords, wannabe empire builders, not-so-hidden agendas, lies, half-truths, betrayal, cross and double-cross at every level.
The main protagonist is again unwillingly dragooned into acting as the government's cleaner and troubleshooter, and he does so with a vengeance.
As in the first book, there's a lot going on here at several different levels. This is one helluva Z tale-plus; you won't be disappointed.
That's the real horror story.
