Publisher's Summary

The journey north ended with The Scourge. The journey for a cure has just begun…Sir Edward Dallingridge survived his journey through the anarchy that is now England, leaving in his wake the bodies of mad lords, foul invaders, friends, and the risen dead. There was nothing on earth that could keep him from the woman he loves. Nothing but the horror that has already consumed her. His journey is over, but his mission is far from complete. As a knight of the realm, he has defended England from every enemy it has. But how does one drive away a plague sent from hell? His only hope lies in the rumors of a cure - a treatment concocted by a strange man on an island fortress. Edward will do everything in his power to find this alchemist and to bring Elizabeth back from the walking terror she has become. The Scourge: Nostrum is the follow-up to The Scourge, continuing the harrowing quest of Sir Edward in a world that knows no God, no laws, and no hope.

    "Not all chickens are clever!"

    This is a great story, and even tho I'm not a big fan of zombies, I love how this is told. Sir Tristan is absolutely hilarious, and balances wonderfully with the seriousness of Sir Edward, the darkness of the story itself, and the plight of those not so clever chickens. The only issue I had with this book is that in between each "act" you are forced to listen to "historical notes" from the author. I actually appreciated these notes in the first book (because history fascinates me) but I liked it much better when these tidbits were presented at the end (that little time period where you know the tale is done, but you're not quite ready to let it go).

    Sprinkling them, however, all throughout the middle interfered with the flow and kept forcing you back from the middle ages into a modern day guided tour. Again, I do appreciate the author's notes but hope that in the next book they will hold them till the end. That being said, I still absolutely enjoyed this book and am already looking forward to the next one.

    Story
    "Better!"

    This book is similar to the last as in that it is a series of meeting one group of peoples after the next, in keeping with zombie story telling tradition. Well written story, unpredictable, a deeper story line, questions remaining as to whats going on. Looking forward to book 3.

    Tristan is even better this time around but Morgan isn't around to balance him, so they pick up a nun along the way. Tristan is a great character to like because of his humor and heroism. Edward is sick with an infection (maybe zombiesm, maybe not, I won't tell) all the time but inexplicably manages to have full strength to push forward and kill everything with barely a rest. I can't spell the nuns name, but its definitely a good thing that there was a strong female role in that was lacking in the previous book.

    The end, unfortunately, I found frustratingly disappointing and I don't feel the story line built up in a way that could believably explain this result; after all that they were put through...

    There are also these terribly annoying historical notes, which in the last book was left to the end so the you can choose to just stop listening, although you thought you had more story left, but didn't. Now they are sprinkled between chapters and they are almost as annoying as TV advertisements, except he didn't raise the volume, phew! I'm left fumbling in the night to skip these chapters. I'm totally disinterested in the research for this story. I mean every author needs to research about their story, but it doesn't mean the reader wants to listen to a documentary.

    The narration was impeccable.

    Any additional comments?

    Even though I liked this book almost as well as the first book because of the continued story line, and how well it's preformed....I did find myself a bit disappointed by his going ointo a total gross out mode for a while, and some of what I consider to be illogical decisions without much explainations as to why.. I can't really discuss them without spoilers, but a couple people spared in the end did irritate me. I'm yelling at the stereo "Come on....Kill them all ready....They really have it coming"

    If you read or listened to The Scourage, then you'll want to continue the story with this book since book one did leave the reader wondering what's going to happen with the mission. The primary character and his often extremely funny wisecracking side kick continue on with the mission and continue evading death over and over (It'd be a short book if they didn't right?)

    All in all it exciting, funny, and helps chew up a lot of highway because it's a really entertaining book.

    "A diffrent approch to zombies"

    Fun to see a very different setting for the zombie problem. In this same vein, the problems they encounter are defiantly a sign of the times.

    Action packed, great characters and some pretty good humor to boot. I highly recommend this series.
