Pop Kult Warlord audiobook cover art

If you enjoyed the Soda Pop Soldier audio book and anxiously awaited the sequel as I did, be forewarned. Pop Kult Warlord isn't in the same league as it's predecessor.The story gets a new voice, a new setting and the characters get a new personality.
I would really like to know why the change of narrator? Oh well, that's the kind of thing parties don't disclose. Soda Pop Soldier is a single, focused, straight forward, linear story. Pop Kult Warlord is a layered, impressionistic, complex multi-story that's ultimately unresolved and disappointing.

Never a dull moment. Full of surprises. Logical and linear without indulgent filler. Well narrated.

A detailed expose' of contemporary vampire existence and one vampire's decision to go rogue. The story flows nicely, but ends without an ending. The narration is excellent. Some vital questions about vampire ways are left unanswered. Who becomes dead vs who becomes undead isn't explained.

The story here reminds me of school cafeteria hamburgers where the patty is more oatmeal than beef. Have you ever driven Hwy 99 from Modesto to Wheeler Ridge? I remember the way I felt on that drive, that's the feeling I have listening to this story. Just about the moment I drift off, something funny or interesting will happen, but by that time, I'm nearly catatonic.

Chuck Dixon is a phenomenal writer. His descriptions of people (are zombies people?), places and events are deep and compelling. Jon Mollison does a great job of giving each character his own voice. Almost like separate narrators at times.
I liked the story, but there are a few places in need of polish. Too late for that now. Even a story about a zombie apocalypse has boundaries of credibility. I like a twist in the plot, but not if it requires a key character to suddenly become a totally different person in an unbelievable way. That's a cheap trick.
