“ZOMBIES OF THE CITY FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS”
Explosions from experimental chemicals spawn zombie mutations and turn the once famous City of London into a dark dystopia. With it comes a live TV show of grim survival between zombie and man, called Game Hunter.
Teenage male and female half-zombies, Tremayne and Red, have no choice but to be part of the dangerous zombie team in three such shows playing against seven of the deadliest game hunters money can buy. As the first show approaches death and betrayal rule, so who will you be rooting for?
Tremayne is adorable. He is so painfully awkward but also awesome. He is sort of stuck in his younger self. He is a complex character that was fun to follow. Red is spunky and tough as nails. They make a great team and are sickeningly adorable together—cute budding romance. There is a whole host of supporting characters. Although some of the bad guys are a little over the top they were still interesting and played their part well.
This is almost non-stop action. There are a few down time moments but it almost goes forward at a breakneck speed. I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised by most of what happened. Although some of the action did get a little repetitive most of it moves it forward. At times I’d forget this was a zombie book. I liked the aspect of being different doesn’t mean you aren’t still a person who deserves rights.
This book was a lot of fun! It was funny and didn’t take itself too seriously. It starts off really strong but sort of languishes in the middle before circling back around and getting right back to being awesome. The characters are very well written and I liked nearly all of them!
A fun zombie romp! If you love zombie books with a coming of age plot and lots of action this is perfect for you.
