I think I liked this better than the first book.It kept me on the edge of my seat so to speak. More plot twists and turns. But the conspiracy gets deeper and deeper. Yes there are zombies, yes there is zombie violence.But I assure you there is much more to this series than random acts of zombie. Most definitely going to trot myself off to the bookstore to get the 3rd. I have to see this through to the end. I want to see what the author does.
