This was very hit and miss for me in terms of overall story. I deliberately waited a few weeks after reading 'the reapers are the angels' because I had a fear that this book couldn't possibly live up to the standard of that one.

In terms of language and dialogue it did but that's about it. Moses is an interesting character - more of the code of living that he shared with Temple. Abraham is not in the least sympathetic and frankly I wondered why Moses didn't just kill him in his sleep. I would have done. I can see that Moses needs a purpose more than anything and in fairness there are moments when Abraham seems almost human but ultimately he was a duff character for me.

Amata is a complicated tangle and not a particularly likable one. On the other hand if Alden bell were to write a reapers story from her POV I'd definitely buy it - would love to know what really goes on in her twisted mind.

The dead in this book don't really add any tension or pose any real threat. Maybe that's intentional. Either way they're caracatuers of humanity, shambling, directionless and pitiable. If they were a metaphor for the aimless consumerism and the attendant spiritual emptiness, then they do a great job. Other wise I'm not really sure what they add. Even over run with dead in an early scene, Moses and Abe don't seem to be in any real danger.

I found the reason behind Amata's apparent dead repellent a little hard to swallow. I'd almost rather it had gone completely unexplained, leaving us to wonder what was different about her.

Add to all that a somewhat flat ending and it was a bit of a damp squib. To do the book justice it was coming in under a distinct disadvantage after reapers and the fact that it was a prequel told in chunks as a campfire story didn't help.

3/5 stars for a good book but not a great one and slight disappointment.

I loved 'The Reaper's are the Angels' so much, I thought it was wonderful. Great book! I was sad at the end though as it seemed to indicate that it was destined to be a stand-alone novel. It didn't seem to leave any openings for further books.

When I saw that there was to be a sequel I jumped on the order button and could not wait to get my hands on it!

This story is told by Moses Todd (from the first book) and he is now traveling with his adopted charge Maury who he inherited by default from Temple. Things seem to be much the same in the world as when we last saw it, the zombies are still out there and the people are still getting by as best they can.

Although this ia a sequel it feels like a prequel at times due to the story being told from a mostly 'flashback' Point Of View. We learn Moses' history as he traveled the zombie infested lands with his brother Abraham, and at the same time we see the over-run world become a little more fleshed out in the telling. There are a lot of new characters to meet and their story's are mostly interesting but it just didn't move me the same way the first book did.

For two books set in the same world they seems so different.

It's not a terrible book....it's just not as likeable as the first one. It would take something quite epic to fill the gap left by Temple, I think, so it had a lot to live up to. It was an ok read but not one I'd go back to.

This is a brilliant follow-up/sequel/prequel call it what you wish. Alden Bell certainly knows how to write post apocalyptic, and certainly knows how to right conflicted characters. Once again we have another brilliant protagonist in Moses Todd, OK we may have had him in The Reapers Are The Angels, but this time we get to see inside his head, see what makes him tick, and see just why he stands beside his morally corrupt brother Abraham.

Yes this is a zombie story, but its not a story about zombies. The slugs (brilliant name) are just background characters and are not what the book is about. Its about honour, love, survival, loyalty and the lengths a man will go to protect what is his.

I loved the angels are the reapers, but absolutely loathed this drivel. Feels rushed and uninteresting. I really miss the main character from the first book. Cardboard character development and plodding plotlines....YAWN!!

'Exit Kingdom' is the story of Moses Todd, a man who has been travelling the roads for years as the world changed to a world where zombies exists and no one is really safe. Moses has learned to live by his wits and keeping his unstable brother, Abraham, safe. Moses and Abraham find a glimpse of humanity when they are given a task, the task is to take a young girl, a vestal to safety as she may have the key to saving the world. As their journey continues, the brothers find themselves facing odds and also facing themselves, the men they are and the men they could be.

I have read the first book in the series, 'The Reapers are The Angels' three times and enjoyed reading it every time.

I enjoyed 'Exit Kingdom' but not as much as 'The Reapers are The Angels', the story was just as engaging but not as strongly written. Moses is a interesting character and it was interesting to find out where his life had taken him after meeting Temple and his life before meeting Temple, I just felt that there was something missing and I think it was Temple but this story was not Temple's.

The story is fast paced, well thought out and raises questions about the world around you and how it can change.
