Just when you think you’re out…it’s the morning after the night of the return of the living dead. Or something like that. After running/bus-driving/snowboarding for her life alongside rebel Smitty, geeky Pete, and popular Alice, Bobby thought she’d found the antidote to the Carrot Man Veggie Juice that had turned the rest of their classmates into zombies. When Smitty (mmm…nom, nom) got chomped, Bobby pumped a syringe full of it into him herself.
But now Bobby’s a prisoner in some hospital of horrors, with no clue how she got there. And Smitty is missing. What if he isn’t cured after all? Bobby knows she’s got to find him, even if it means facing Scotland’s hungry hordes — plus Alice’s buckets of snark — again. And this time, zombies aren’t the only evil stressing her out. The brain-dead are bad enough, but how can Bobby stop the big pharma business behind the epidemic? Especially when her own mom works for the company?
What I thought:
And it is finally time to continue this series! If you love zombie books and want some added action and humour then check this series out, it’s pretty fun!
This continues right after the first book, with them on the bus. And just like the first book, this one involves a lot of running around and not much of a rest for our characters. The lulls and relaxation periods were spaced far enough apart, so it really ramps up your adrenaline while reading. The added clue following and puzzle solving to find certain missing characters was interesting, although I thought they were pretty lucky to happen to come across a few things.
The zombies have changed a bit in this too. They are like an upgraded version that can actually do more things, which I won’t say but it’s an added bonus for sure. I was hoping for a little more one-on-one zombie action though. The ending finally wraps some things up and it was some pretty awesome stuff too. The ending wasn’t a cliff-hanger but it was kind of left open. Either for a continuation or just for your own imagination I don’t know, but I didn’t mind actually.
While I did like this book, I don’t think I liked it as much as the first. It’s a great choice for October or for anyone wanting their zombie fix!
