This really is the best series that I can honestly remember reading for a long time. It just doesn't seem to get old. I am pissed that I have to now wait for the next books to be written. I am doing as the author suggested and am starting the book titled 36 which will hook into the remainder of the V Plague books . The new book 36 looks like another winner as I can't seem to put it away for any length of time
Im gutted to have to now wait for 15. So much i could say but it would spoil it for new readers. My heart was in my throat at one bit (same as you Mr Patton!) I got angry at the ending and let forth a sea of expletives at what the enemy did at the end. Im shocked to hear people say when is it ending. Erm excuse me, but some of us dont want it to end. Great likeable characters (ok have to admit dont like Rachel) but men and women you wish the world were populated by.
...and I read a lot of them! Don't ask me why, because I don't know why. Used to be that if any horror movie was gonna give me a nightmare, all I needed was one vision of a zombie and the rest of my sleeping hours involved running for my life, torn flesh stuck in teeth that are trying to bite me, and rotten bodies. Maybe the change came with the "Walking Dead" series? I don't know. But now I just devour these Zompoc books like I'm cramming for a test...lol.
And after having read series from many different authors, Dirk Patton's "V Plague" truly is ranked up there as the best and most anticipated for future release dates for the next installment. Let me just say that I for one, am in no way ready for this series to reach its final conclusion despite what Mr Patton is hearing from other readers. Not once have I been disappointed in the entire 14 book series, nor have I felt that the series has gone as far as it could go. The characters are likeable and engaging, each one adding their own value to the story as a whole and the story line continues to evolve. Some of those evolutions are expected or predictable as most zombie stories progress naturally. while others, as in the last few chapters of this installment, are a complete blindside.
The "oil rig platform" and the Athena Project had been introduced in a previous installment and I had been wondering where this story line was going to go. Then when the details of the project was revealed I thought..."Really? You're gonna go there?" But then, I read the next couple of chapters, and being reduced to tears and thinking, "OMG...What now?" I remembered the Athena Project and I released that breath I'd been holding for the previous 2 chapters and thought.."Thank God. He went there!!" Knowing now that Mr. Patton' s books "36" and The Void address the Athena Project, I can now dive in and get ready for V Plague 15 to be released. Please don't keep us waiting too long.
My only complaint is that it is too easy to read one of these installments in a single day that it feels like forever for the next one to be released. So write fast Mr Patton...
If you're starting the series here, go start with book 1. Only way you'll have a chance of knowing what's going on.
Another home run by Mr. Patton. The pacing continues to maintain its momentum. Storyline is still rock solid and keeps you engaged and immersed. Makes me pround of a fellow Vet. In both Mr. Patton and Maj. Chase.
And the cons(didn't think you'd get off that easy did you?): From the authors note: agreed, it'll end when it's time like any great tail. But man....the twists you've created. Some I knew were coming, some I did not. Well played sir. Well played. And AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRG. Now I gotta wait how long for the next book? Again....well played sir. Well played.
