Brilliantly written, great characters, cant wait for book 3

I really enjoyed the second installment of Slow burn probably a bit more than the first. I read this in one sitting as yet its another book I couldn't put down.
My addiction to zombie/dysotonian reads is definitely getting worse, but what makes it special is when you find a book or series you love. Slow Burn has definitely become another favorite for me.
We continue to follow Zed and Murphy after they have been cast out from the safety of the soldiers because they are "infected" and Murphy goes looking for his family. I love the twist that they can walk among the dead and that there maybe more humans with a "slow burn".
In book 2 we are introduced to another character Mandi a younger girl who they rescued. She adds extra female interest and brings a nice balance to the new group and she is so relatable and fits in well.
The clever twist is Zed and his mobile keeping in contact with Amber and Stephanie hopefully book threes proposed storylines. New interesting character Russell makes fascinating interest and keeps on your toes.
Despite not as fast paced as the first; it allows us to get to know more about the main characters in much more depth. Bobby has a great sense of humour emanating from these two guys; with some funny and comical banter between them. Both Zed, Murphy, Russell and Mandi are well developed characters and I really love Zed the hero with a heart of gold.
Another unique twist is that Zombies behavior is evolving into dangerous pack mentality for extra thrills and just when you think book two is rounding up with some great ideas and their plans of the future; Ambers frantic call pulls the hero Zed to go and find her. Wow what a cliffhanger Bobby kept some fab storylines open; teasing us for book three.
Highly recommended zombie read with some unique twists from others in the genre. Definitely read book one first to get the full plot.
Brilliantly written and I cant wait for book three...hurry!
Keepem coming Bobby!
