Fans of zombie fiction and the horror genre will enjoy Moody’s world and his take on raw, all-consuming hatred destroying humanity. Readers will root for Matthew and hope for his success in the terrifying new world.
David Moody’s story is a good one, as there is plenty of action and conflict. But this is a sequel to One of Us Will Be Dead By Morning, which I did not read. So I kept wondering when the author was going to provide some kind of backstory for newcomers about what caused the conflict in the first place and why some people ended up as Haters and others were Unchanged. What exactly happened? When and how did it happen? Those questions were never answered, which I found to be a bit frustrating as I wanted to know what was going on ... has an unexpected ending that I enjoyed. If you’re looking for a novel that provides lots of food for thought, I highly recommend this one. However, it would serve you well to read the prequel first so you can fully understand and appreciate all that happens in this second Final War installment.
A gripping take on the zombie apocalypse ... Matt is a typical action hero, trying to protect his woman and prove he is smarter than everyone around him. As more information about the Haters is revealed, Matt’s need to learn more drives the plot forward. Some scenes feel rushed, especially after long sections of Matt surviving by waiting and staying still. Fans of zombie thrillers will not be disappointed.
