Blood Soaked and Invaded: Blood Soaked, Book 2 | [James Crawford]

Blood Soaked and Invaded: Blood Soaked, Book 2

Zombies were bad enough, but now we're being invaded from all sides. Up to our necks in blood, body parts, and unanswerable questions….As soon as the realization hit me, I lost my cool. I curled into the fetal position in a pile of blood, offal, and body parts, and froze there. What in the Hell was I becoming that killing was entertaining and satisfying? I don't know how long I was on my side in the remains of my opponents, but the mess was coagulating and getting cold…to say nothing of the smell of sliced-open bowels.

Audible Editor Reviews

An over-the-top gruesome blend of zombies, aliens, romance, nanotechnology, and coffee, all swirling in a pulpy, foul-smelling mess. Listeners infatuated with the zombie apocalypse genre will no doubt enjoy this one, and performer David Stifel's deadpan tones are a great fit for maximizing the humor as Frank the Zombie killer takes care of business. Although things might seem to get off to a slow start, the action-packed, fast-moving plot gets going quickly. Fun and disturbing all at the same time.

Publisher's Summary

Zombies were bad enough, but now we're being invaded from all sides. Up to our necks in blood, body parts, and unanswerable questions….As soon as the realization hit me, I lost my cool. I curled into the fetal position in a pile of blood, offal, and body parts, and froze there. What in the Hell was I becoming that killing was entertaining and satisfying? I don't know how long I was on my side in the remains of my opponents, but the mess was coagulating and getting cold…to say nothing of the smell of sliced-open bowels. There were periodic noises suggesting violence around and about where I was glued to the ground by noxious goop, but I couldn't even raise my face to take a look around. My brain spun around and around, propelled by unanswered questions and abject horror. The person I thought I was - a guy who does what he has to do when the chips are down - had been replaced by someone I didn't know and it made me terribly afraid.

"Frank." Bajali's voice came from behind me after a period of no screams, gunshots, epithets or scrambling feet. "Would you like me to help you get up?" "What have you done to us?" I asked him that because they were the only words I had. "I made us able to survive a world like this one." "Did you think about what it would cost us?" "No, my friend, I only thought to keep everyone alive. I had no time to debate morality."…."I'm not human," I asked, "am I?" "No, Frank. None of us are." "Am I still me?" His breath caught, and I felt the words moving around in his mind, stirring up a miasma of emotions before he said, "I am sorry. I do not know."

    "Plot building for book 3"

    My full Blood Soaked and Invaded review can be found at AudiobookReviewer dot com

    Blood Soaked and Invaded: Blood Soaked, Book 2 picks up right where Blood Soaked and Contagious left off, which is a good thing as we were left with a bit of a cliff hanger and Crawford had some explaining to do. It is somewhat slow in the beginning, and very amusing as Frank had to deal with recovering from the seeming debilitating head injury. Personally I found the genre combining a bit tedious, I mean was it necessary to have the aliens? And where and what is going to happen with the governmental agency that showed up? There was a whole lot more talking and plotting and less action than I expected, also several new characters introduced, hope that it was just simple plot building for the next installment. I really enjoyed it, however I was able to let my mind wonder as I wasn’t fully immersed as with book one. As I said sequel seem to be very difficult for authors to pull off well and this was a pretty good attempt, as I will be waiting for book 3, as I am sure there will be, as there is a lot of new avenues to cover.

    Story
    "Better and better"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood Soaked and Invaded the most enjoyable?

    I loved the snarky personalities, sarcastic / witty retorts etc. I have not been so amused or excited in any other books since I read Wheel of time years ago. I especialy love how Frank kept getting stronger via his Nanites.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Soaked and Invaded?

    No spoilers. But there where many!


    What about David Stifel’s performance did you like?

    His tone fitted the characters like a glove. It was perfection.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was too long for me too get it all in one day, but I got it in 2 days via work. Never had that much fun at work before.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is funny and exciting, hell even abit grotesque (getting brain eating explained in great detail will do that too you) even so I was laughing for almost a third of the book, beside myself at suspense at other times and quite grossed out at others. I am so god damned impressed at an author who can make me go from laughing out loud too wanting too be sick too hoping things would work out for Frank. This book is a MUST read!
