Zombie Attack: Army of the Dead, By Devan Sagliani (Zombie Attack - book 2)

4 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Xander MacNamara’s adventure continues when he is placed in charge of a civilian colony outside Barstow. He and his young wife, Felicity Jane, are forced to deal with the daily grind of reconstruction, the constant menace of zombies, and an equally hungry cannibal tribe known as the Alphas.

Things heat up fast when Sonya, a mysterious stranger sent by a secretive benefactor, frees him from enemy captors. Once again, Xander and Felicity find themselves fleeing for their lives from a never-ending series of new threats as well as old ones. A hidden enemy within the military is hell bent on creating a secret weapon: genetically engineered super zombies! Friends and soldiers are pitted against each other, as one side races to spread the cure while the other battles to gain ultimate control over the fate of mankind.

MY THOUGHTS -
This second book takes off a little while after the first book ends (and you do really have to read the first one to "get" the second one). So I would say, this is not a stand alone book.

Again, like the first - lots of action, lots of adventure. This one was just a tiny bit not as exciting for me as the first, but still a very good Zombie read that Zombie lovers will enjoy!
"Outside, it was kill or be killed."

"He's not going to eat my brother! Not while I'm still alive!"
I loved the characters as I continued to get to know them, and some I didn't really care for in the beginning I ended up liking much better in this book. I loved how the author developed all the gangs and cults, that's how I would have imagined it would be like if this were to really happen. Listen to me! LOL as if this would really happen! That's what I get for reading two Zombie books back to back, it starts to destroy your sense of what reality is!

Still a clean read, but graphic, so OK for teens.

Thanks again to Devan for sending me this e-book for my honest review!
