Book two of the Undead Unit is out at last, and I am thankful, as I have missed the team. There are some changes, too. Our Vivacious vampire and werewolf have another member added to their team, and man do they need all the help they can get. Lacey and COlton are just starting to get along, and now they have to contend with Kazz, an eager beaver that actually fits in with the pair.
One thing I like is that this actually has more focus on the police proceedural part than the paranormal. Not to say that there isn't occult aspects to the story, but usually this sort of stuff gets brushed aside in favor of the less mundane parts of the story. You could say this is sort of like NCIS or SWAT injected with the otherworldly, and you'd be right on point.
I also liked starting the book out in the bad guy's POV. It added some dark element and let you know right away what was going on, so you were one up on our undead team. Everything comes together in short time. The action blasts off, the mystery of who and where the baddie is, and the new dynamics of the team all mesh flawlessly as the plot progresses. It is another fun ride, and I am really starting to like this series more and more.
Another change that we have is that we have a new narrator. Ok, he's not new. The man is a seasoned pro, and does some incredible work in other things I've heard him do, but he just got onboard this undead unit, and we are lucky to have him.
Who am I talking about? Why, Mr. Paul J. McSorley! I think there were some issues with the original narrator (poor editing if you ask me), and Madden was lucky enough to snag McSorely to this gig. I hope he stays. I mean no disrespect to the other reader, but McSorely really brings some life into the series. There is a vibrancy, and an urgency here that wasn't before. He really has the pacing down, and his cadence fits right in with the characters. Give him another book or two, and people will be wanting him to reread book one like they did when Glover read Ghost Story in the Dresden Files instead of Marsters. He really added to the whole ambience of the book, the characters stand out and have deeper personalities, too. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
