Nina's back...and she's still feisty and hard ass, despite weeks of torture at the hands of the Forgotten. Once she, Mikey & Emily escape, with the help of newcomer Alek, their journey continues, and I loved reading about their travels as they run further from their captors. Once in the relative safety of a new group within the army barracks the story still had me turning pages. Plenty of gore, deaders and pouting..great stuff. Slightly odd deviation to 2 new characters but this is explained later in the book. Nina & Nova embark on a new mission (fools errand surely)...but promises to be an interesting read...cut once more to the 2 new characters...before cutting to, the end. Just like that, no warning, in fact my kindle still said 91% so I feel a little cheated of that extra 9% which I'd just sat down with a cuppa to enjoy! Because of the abrupt ending, which felt less like an ending and more like the power was cut off so the computer wouldn't start so the book had to simply stop, I have only given it 4 stars. A good read nonetheless...

I've never loved zombies. Don't get me wrong, nobody loves zombies, but there sure have been a lot of zombies around recently.

Which is why it's BLOODY AWESOMELY REFRESHING that Claire C Riley treats them the way she does. They're dark; they're scary; they're violent. They kill people. Just like zombies are meant to. Riley's zombies are a force of nature, and when they set their...um...minds(?) on something, they are truly unstoppable.

This is the world that Nina lives in, but zombies are the least of her problems: the first entry in Riley's series left Nina in an inescapable situation. And Riley doesn't shy away from the brutal world that she has created, a world where humans are just as evil and dark as the zombies themselves. In fact, I can honestly say without spoilers that the bad folks in this book are just that: they're folks. If the zombies are a force of nature, then Riley is ultimately concerned with facing against the idiots who are so concerned with boarding up for the storm that they've forgotten to leave airholes.

There's a sense of tension that runs through all of Riley's work, and Odium II is no exception: the zombies are always there, but as a reader, it's easy to lose sight of them; Riley lulls us into a false sense of security, and this is the place where her writing shines. She knows Nina so well, so intimately, that you know Riley understands how her creation would react in any scenario.

But what I love most about this book? Claire C Riley has blown open her world. She continues to tell an intimate story of Nina, Emily, Mikey and the other survivors of the zombie apocalypse, but this book gives us just the tiniest of glimpses of the world beyond Nina's head. And it is fascinating. Riley is adept at weaving the global in with the local and the personal and I can't wait to see that continue in future instalments in this series.

And you know what? I still don't care for the zombies.

Odium 2 - we continue on Nina's incredible journey & am reintroduced into the dark & complicated world that Nina is surviving in & damn does she want to live! I've always loved Nina's character & now am obsessed with her awesomeness. I like the feminine side to nina coming out - "touch feely kinda girl" yet still the badass warrior we know & love. Odium 2 introduces another brilliant character with plenty of hot girl power & new companion to Nina - the gorgeous red head Nova.

I don't know what it is about Claire's writing but every time I read her books it's as though I'm on a journey - like when you're dreaming & watching yourself trying survive in a world that's falling apart - Odium & Odium II have taken me on an emotional roller coaster of a journey. I absolutely love Nina & going on this journey with her left me breathless & emosh..., mixed up feelings ...the way the characters come to life - see, hear, feel, smell & taste the story.

Claire has a way with words and literally brings life to her characters. There are some authors that are excellent story tellers and have awesome grammatical prose. And then there are authors like Claire C Riley. She is one of those authors that leaves you on the edge of your seat, grabs you by your heart, pulls you around the world, and makes you believe that you could look up from your book and see the apocalypse happen around you. It takes an amazing personality, amazing drive, and amazing heart to accomplish that in one book, but somehow, someway Claire does just that!

If you like a book that leaves you crying, begging, and pleading for more because you are so wrapped up in the characters lives then The Odium Saga is for you! Until the next book comes out I will be 'a roamer wondering from place to place, town to town, trying to survive...' #Odium 2

As the title suggests, Odium 2 is the follow up to Odium. Odium Origins is also available, which I'm yet to read.

The Odium series of books are about the zombie apocalypse. We start Odium well after the zombie outbreak with the main character, Nina, leaving the protection of the walled city she's living within. Sometimes taking your chances with the zombies is a better option than staying where you are.

The sequel follows on from the original, so Odium is essential reading before moving on to Odium 2.

Not only is the writing great in the Odium books, and the characters are well rounded and realised, but the thing that grabbed my attention more than anything was the settings the characters find themselves in. I won't spoil the journey by listing them, but I found myself marvelling at the imaginative environments in which the characters ended up.

If you like well written zombie fiction, strong characters, and a strong female lead, then you can't go wrong with the Odium series. With intrigue from both the future and the past, I found myself hungry for more with every page turn.

My only complaint is that Odium 3 isn't ready yet!

A great series for anyone who loves zombie fiction. Tense, intriguing, funny, violent. What more could you want?

Keep up the great writing Claire.
