It's been two years since the plague of ex-humans decimated mankind. Two years since the superheroes St. George, Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth gathered Los Angeles’s survivors behind the walls of their fortress, the Mount. Since then, the heroes have been fighting to give the Mount’s citizens hope, and something like a real life. But now supplies are growing scarce, the zombies are pressing in . . . and the heroes are wondering how much longer they can hold out. Then hope arrives in the form of a surviving US Army battalion--and not just any battalion. The men and women of the Army's Project Krypton survived the outbreak because they are super-soldiers, created before mankind's fall to be better, stronger, faster than normal humans--and their secure base in Arizona beckons as a much needed refuge for the beleaguered heroes and their charges. But a dark secret lies at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it wield an awesome and terrifying power.

On the heels of reading Red Rising... So. Much. Testosterone. In one week. Has anyone seen my ovaries? I think I misplaced them somewhere and spontaneously grew balls and maybe a beard while reading these two books. “An ex latched onto his wrist and tried to bury its teeth in his bicep. He flexed...
The first book set up this book so well. So entertaining, and a pretty great story for a super hero zombie mash-up. And now the second book has pretty well set up a third book. Really looking forward to whatever this series has to offer. The heroes are all nearly carbon copies of the likes of Superm...
A follow-up just as fun and fluffy as the first book. I kinda liked how it was deliberately cliched and even poked fun at itself for it ("The Army in zombie movies is always evil!") and all the satirical references to superheroes. Lots of very humorous pop culture references, though it will probably...
Superheroes plus zombies. Kind of a guilty pleasure sort of thing that I almost don't want to admit to having listened to. Some of the explicit language is a little over the top, and the portrayal of women and minorities is a little lacking, but I suspect that I'm not actually the target audience fo...
