A Fast Unforgiving Killer Fever,
This review is from: Fever (Paperback)
Wayne Simmons has outdone himself with this fantastic sequel (prequel) to his brilliant novel Flu.
The story starts of fast and continues at a break-neck speed right until the very end giving the reader, all out action and a plot that will leave you begging for more.
The horror in this book is gory and violent. The zombies are those of the traditional Romero style, shambling through the book and ripping the throats of the characters you grow to love.... but the real class and story telling comes from the intricate plot Wayne Simmons has created. Conspiracy and Government cover ups drip from the pages of this book and the thrill and suspense created by the author will keep you gripped until the very end.
The little nods to Flu - dashed throughout Fever's chapters, helps the reader to connect the plot to the orignal and also reminds us that there are survivors from the first instalment, just waiting to be rescued. The subtle hints the author gives us provide a nostalgic excitement and keeps the reader emotionally involved with the characters.
I highly recommend this book to fans of the genre. It is possibly one of the best plot driven zombie novels available today and Wayne Simmons has once again proved he is one of the leading new voices in the horror genre. All praise must go the authors ability to create such a great story, with such a twisting plot that remains exciting throughout the entire book.
I want more....
