I throughly enjoyed 'Plague' and I very much look forward to book 2! I liked this book right away. The idea of having a former Australian Special Forces soldier turned African game warden is already fascinating to me. Add to that the relationship this former solider has with his sister and fellow animal protectors and you've got yourself a fun and action packed zombie thriller.
Though, there are nazi's in this zombie book. Personally, I think nazi's and zombies as a pair have been over done. I KNOW if we try hard enough, we can come up with some historical bad guys that are something other than nazi's. That said, I could accept it since this book had a campy feel to it already. Maxwell Zener does a great job with the narration, in particular the different accents he had to master. I would recommend this book to anyone who might enjoy a zombie thriller set in Africa (but again, nazi's).
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Whilst I have rated this book middle of the road, I actually found the overall story quite engaging. I thought the concept of Nazi experimentation rising 60+ years after World War II was a great way of blending mad science and zombie-like creations.
The characters were well defined, if not a bit too perfect (in the way things seemed to always work out for the main characters), and they all had reasonable back stories to support their place in the story.
I was, to be honest, a little disappointed in the simplicity of the ending, especially after all the chaos the team went through to that point. However, leaving an enticing opening for book two will most likely have me using a credit for a follow on listen.
Thanks to the author/narrator/publisher for providing me this audiobook in return for a honest review.
