I actually enjoyed the second book much more than the first. I thought the concept of super heroes and zombies a little different, but somehow this author managed to bring it all together. Not for everyone, however if you are into the zombie genre I would be that you'll at least enjoy that part of the story line.
I really enjoyed this book. Excellent narration. I enjoy books of his genre, especially when the main character acts and thinks like most rational people would if they were in that situation. Although the premise of the book is a little far fetched, the core story of the book which is being prepared for anything should be the core take-away from this story. The theme of self reliance is also something I hope most people who read this book will appreciate as well. This was a great series, I went through all three books in less then a week. I'm looking forward to the 4th book, wish I knew how long before that comes out.
I bought this audio book thinking that there was going to be some action. I waited and waited, thinking that there was going to be a payoff at some point which never came. I would have been ok with it had I thought this was going to be a series and this book was just setting up the next one. I would not recommend this book. I will say that I have purchased several of this authors books and have enjoyed them, however this one just didn't do it for me. The Zombie Battle series is far better and recommend that if you haven't already purchased it.
I really liked how this book chose to take a more scientific approach to the vampire mythology. I'm not a huge vampire fan, I prefer the zombie/post apocalypse type stories, however I would highly recommend this book to anyone with even the slightest bit of interest in the vampire mythos. The only down side to this book is the sometimes ridiculous actions of some of the characters. As in many zombie books which I'm more familiar with, there always seems to be characters that inexplicable do the most inane and self defeating things. Overall a decent story.
I purchased Domain of the Dead some time ago and then recently saw McKinnon's 'new' book 'Remains of the Dead'. Let me just say that they are the exact same book WTF??? Seriously, these are the same book, same characters, same story, etc..... Thankfully the people at Audible are extremely customer service orientated and not only gave me a refund but also an extra $5 credit. This has to be a joke, but if it is I fail to see it. I wonder if anyone else has fallen victim to this ruse. Don't get me wrong, this is a good book if purchased just once. Changing the title does not make it new. I would really like to hear the author's response.
I truly enjoyed this book, finally a Zombie/Apocalypse book where the main characters actually make smart decisions and are rational individuals. One of the first Zombie books I've read where I wasn't wincing at the assinine choices made by the group of survivors. From the set up of the camp to the re-supply and running of this new society, it was quite refreshing to read this story and see how things can be done right. It seems like every post-apocalyptic book out there that has a group of survivors as the main story line, always has someone in that group that ruins it for everyone. I would strogly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre. From what I read on the authors website this is only the first installment for this series, I eagerly await the next book.
