The story itself was not terrible, but could have been better.
The final episode of this alternate reality thriller is entertaining, although it doesn't live up to the promise of the first two. The long-threatened rise of Nazi zombies finally comes to pass, with predictable results. The zombies themselves are rather dull, and an early phase of the battle -- pitting werewolves and other monsters against the zombies -- doesn't have much spark. The zombies are ridiculously incompetent -- they can't penetrate a barrier of piled junk that the good guys are able to assemble and disassemble in seconds -- but I suppose death takes its toll on a zombie's brainpower. Still, the ability of thirty people to hold off several hundred zombies long enough to engage in hours of chit-chat weakens the story. I never had the sense that the zombies posed much of a threat at all.
Despite its weak ending, the non-zombie characters and the story's tongue-in-cheek attitude make the novel as a whole worth reading. In the best tradition of heroic adventure novels, Trey Garrison establishes Fox Rucker as a courageous man who refuses to accept defeat, the sort of leader who inspires others to give their best. That, of course, is what happens in a series of high energy action sequences that propel the story to its predictable conclusion.
