I loved Fuchs description. I bought into Mick's motivation and found myself rooting for him when he placed his bets. I found myself hooked on the fights themselves, believing who would win and being surprised when I was wrong and right.
The biggest problem with this book was the main bad guy's motivation. I don't get why Sterpanko does what he does, or rather, why he allows to happen what happens. Some things that happen in the fight scenes are a little clumsy, like a zombie being able to catch up to a werewolf, but that never elevated to the point of pulling me out the story.
I'll definitely give more of AP Fuchs' stuff a try.
Gerald Rice, author of 30 Minute Plan
The war with the zombies is over. Though the casualties were high, the humans finally won. Now, an enterprising (and quite ruthless) man named Tony Sterpanko, has stepped in and created "Zombie Fight Night," where warriors battle zombies. Fortunes are won and lost over these battles.
Fuchs is a master storyteller, for sure. He did exactly what he set out to do. He gave us a number of gladiatorial-style battles vs. zombies. There was a story in there to hold them together but I read the book for the fights. From a Viking to a samurai, Bruce Lee to Fuchs's own AXIOM-MAN, we were treated to a list of battles that were superbly written.
On a side note regarding the plot, I felt that the ending was bittersweet. One character did get what was coming to said character.
The violence, detailed blow for blow, is probably the one thing that keeps this from being for the kids. Sexuality doesn't really show up and only one swear word that I can remember shows up on the last page of the main story.
AP Fuchs takes that concept and rocks it, even before the program was born, and brings a zombie slant to the concept. Zombie Fight Night features a slew of fantasy match ups of fighting warriors taking on zombies. But it goes deeper than that.
The story itself revolves around a dude named Mick who got in over his head at this zombie money-fight arena. Mick gets in debt so bad that he is forced by the manical Russian owner of the fight club to bet on the fights not just for his money, but for his own life.
It's then that the fights become the centerpiece of the story. Ninjas, superheros, werewolves, robots, Bruce Lee, sumo... pretty much any legendary fighter worth his weight in blood is booked to fight the zombies that range from shamblers to runners.
It's with that background that Fuch's takes great glee in putting the matchups together. Providing just enough background on the people fighting the zombies to care whether they win or lose, the story jumps from Mick's decision to who he wants to bet on to the fights. Blood, skulls, and zombies get crushed in specatular fashion, leading up to a wild swerve finish I didn't see coming.
I bought it a while back when it was on sale for a buck. It was worth every penny. At $2.99 on Kindle, if you like "Deadliest Warrior" and zombie gore, then this is the book for you.
