Book 2 in the Demon Squad Series.
Armageddon averted, the world returns to business as usual. Unfortunately for Frank "Triggaltheron" Trigg, business as usual sucks. His night out interrupted by a horde of kidnapping zombies, what could possibly be worse? The resurrection of the Antichrist, that's what. Caught in the middle of a supernatural pissing match between the devil's wife, a legion of undead, and an overachieving necromancer, Frank must survive long enough to stop hell from being unleashed upon humanity - again.

I am a big fan of this series, and each book keeps getting better and better. Full of snark, wit, action and characters you can really get behind, especially as the bullets fly, you can't go wrong with this series! This book has it all. Zombies, Necromancers, Demons, Angels, 2 different anti-christs and the first woman in creation! What more can you ask for? A huge conspiracy is at play, all to bring about the resurrection in the title. I wont ruin it, but you wont see the twist coming until the last second. Through it all, Frank Trigg, the Devils favorite nephew, struggles to keep his head above water as events spiral out of control. Full of fast paced action, the story never lags, and the authors writing is as sharp as ever, with some literal burst out laughing funny moments! As I write this, i am half way through book 4, and this book is setting up the later books perfectly, building the characters and setting along the way. Any fan of urban fantasy will enjoy this book. Noah Levine is a revelation as a narrator. He really brings the characters to life! He even does something unique in my experience. At the end of each chapter, he reads off the next chapter name in the tone set by the last scene, whether frustrated, angry, happy, Drunk!, or exasperated. I have listened to lots of audio books, but he is the only narrator i have heard that does that, and it's a cool little touch. I can't wait to get back to listening!
Say something about yourself!
This is good but falls just short of being great. Trigg does does a lot of running his mouth and shooting. There is a lot of backstabbing and I had to restart the story just to follow the characters to see who was playing for what team. That is why I did not give it a higher rating. You have to read the first book to understand the characters' relationships.
