How to tell a would be reader to in fact read this book (series) without giving anything away. Get ready for the ride of your life and know that each pause will leave you shocked and needing more asap. I hope the writing fairy is kind and allows Chris to write like it will save his life!
Two things. A paranoid captain in a forgotten port would have had Master at Arms and the ships Marine detail set to guard all the critical spaces on the ship. The Bridge, CIC and Engineer Room would have had an armed guard as would the helo since one was already posted earlier in the story. The later too the spaces before decks says to steep for zombies to do anything but fall down alerting everyone in that space that someone just fell 8-10 feet to a steel deck. Secured spaces like Fire Control would be locked with a keypad. Zombies aren't getting past that. Finally water tight doors. A ship tied to a pier is still moving enough to cause a water tight door to flex. It takes 6-8 individual dogs to secure a water tight door. Some of them take two hands and elbow grease to get them open and closed. Zombies aren't navigating closed water tight doors.
Finished this book 3 days ago, still stunned! If you have made it this far in the series and extras, you already know how deep and human the living characters are, well, some of the dead characters are in depth as well. Adrian does good guy things with his good guys. Evil works overtime to shut him down. Exciting action. Clever humor. Unique references. (Unlike Adrian we still have Google.) Cliff hanger ending. Never before have I worried that something bad could happen to an artist before they finished a series. Wondering if there is some kind of way to keep Chris Philbrook around… download his brain to AI? Cybergenic freezing? Keep him in bubble wrap so he doesn’t get hurt? This book definitely left me craving more.
Chris and Carl, this book makes me so very happy (and pissed)!!! What a seamless weaving of the stories and characters. The conversations between the group leaders was everything I would wish for it to be and more. I love the new vastness of the world and how big the scale has been made. I CANNOT WAIT for the next entry, cause that cliffhanger is NOT COOL!!! There were a few moments when I was like there’s no way Chris will do that, will he? Will he!!??? Ugh, bring on the next one, mates!
They’ve done it again, drawn me into a world where good and evil battle and good people die along with some of the bad people. I feel like I know the people in this series, it’s written in such a way that you bond with them. Really hope it’s not too long before I find out what happens next
Philbrook has once again given us an emotionally charged, character driven tale of surviving an apocalypse. Adrian and others from his original group are over in Europe (England, Germany) to find family and other survivors. This one is a real tearjerker with many heartbreaking losses. I highly recommend this book and series to any fan of the zombie/horror genres.
Yet another great addition to this story. I’ve been with Adrian since the first days of Adriansundeadduary.com. This is the only series that I’ve ever read more than once. Book 13 finally brings together two groups of characters with wonderful chemistry. This series is just plain fun! If you haven’t read these, you’re missing out.
