City of the Dead (Author's Preferred Edition) by Brian Keene, narrated by Joe Hempel
City of the Dead - Brian Keene,Joe Hempel

 CITY OF THE DEAD has been on my TBR pile for a year or two, (and on my physical bookshelf), so when I saw it listed on my Audioboom! email, I immediately requested it. I'm glad I did!

 

This book picks up right where THE RISING left off. Most of the group is now trapped in a house and you can't help but to root for them. The zombies they are fighting are not your normal zombies-they can be fast, use weapons, and drive cars. They are led by Ob, and in this book we learn more about him and his mission on earth.

 

Fast paced and filled with lots of fun action,(zombie crocs and birds anyone?), there isn't much time to rest here, and why would you want to? There are plenty of gross outs and characters to root for and not of lot of time for quiet moments, fancy prose, or reflection. If this is the type of book you're in the mood for, then CITY OF THE DEAD is the book for you!

 

I listened to the audio, narrated by Joe Hempel. It took me a while to get into his narrative style, but once I did, I ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

 

Recommended for those in the mood for bloody, smart-zombie fun!

 

*Thanks to Audioboom! and Joe Hempel for this audio copy in exchange for my honest review. This is it!*

Halloween Bingo: Supernatural
Darkness on the Edge of Town - Brian Keene

 

Trapped in the dark with no way to leave town and the only one who knows anything is a nutty homeless guy.

Watch your neighbors slowly turn into savages as the darkness slowly insinuates itself in your minds.

The barrier isn't solid but anyone who crosses it never returns.

 

This was way better than Under the Dome.

Halloween Bingo: Th Dead Will Walk
Dead Sea - Brian Keene

 

Fleeing a dying city 2 men and 2 children manage to hop a ride with about 15 others on a decomissioned but still functional coast guard ship.

Along with 2 nasty pieces of work that had nothing to do with the zombies.

 

I know a couple others had this one que'ed, so I'm not how much I can say without spoilers.

Handy dandy hunter tip if you ever find yourself in the zombie apocalypse with a shotgun:

 

Bird shot is useless.
