challenges our worldview and gave me pause for thought on several occasions In the real world drug cartels are armed andour worldview and gave me pause for thought on several occasions In the real world drug cartels are armed and and with the war on drugs seemingly reduced to an afterthought in the public eye one is forced to wonder about the capabilities of a wealthy organization whose members have made the battle against the US a personal affair After decades of crippling drug ords and removing them from the power they ve enjoyed at the behest of accommodating governments what s stopping the cartels from becoming terroristsThis is one of the most prominent uestions I found The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl lingering in the pages of McKinney s work and his attention for detail and accuracy add to the story s frightening realism The zombies are products of a world gone mad with greed and derision and maybe even political wastefulness if you want to read the book on a deeperevel which McKinney allows you to do The zombies in this book are as fierce and savage as the title implies but this savagery is underscored by the novel s hyperrealism a contrast that makes the zombies all the effective as monsters Zombie fans should be excited for this book You Exile and Pilgrim ll read this one than once with characters to cheer for who are thrown into a series of conflicts our society has become all too familiar with the pages are packed with thrills only a master storyteller can provide I finished reading this book instead of watching football I feltike I was sitting in a movie theater and when it was over I wanted to Google to find out when the next installment is coming It was genius to change up the usual apocalyptic scenery The first part of the book builds up to the final stand off on the cruise ship Zombies on boats always heighten my evel of fear Normally you can find a good hiding place and wait ong enough for a horde of zombies to pass you by migrating to places of higher population On a ship there s no place for them to go And on a ship filled with undead there s nowhere for a survivor to go but in the waterassuming you re Hannah Montana: The Movie lucky enough to make it out of your stateroomThe title of this book is aptly fitting These zombies are some of the scariest most resilient bastards I ve read to date They just wont die Even after four shots to the head they keep coming McKinney is a marvel at creating gruesome scenes and frightening monsters The Savage Dead is full of rich three dimensional characters and satisfying storyines Filled to the brim with action and terror it manages to keep me on the edge of my seat and craving depravity I ove the imagery McKinney creates when describing the dead In one scene he describes a man s gaping abdomen spilling intestines and carved out ike the belly of a canoe It S THESE SMALL DETAILS THAT MAKE these small details that make work so successfulLet s talk charactersthe standout character surprised me Rarely do I connect with the antagonist of a book The complexity of Pilars character was unexpected As she fights to assassinate the senator she s also at war with her internal demons The hard callous character shows moments of compassion and struggles with some obvious anger management issues Much of her development is done through flashback Memories of her attempt to sneak into America as a child she s eft in a truck with a group of immigrants as they die from starvation She blames herself for not saving her childhood friend Lupe and is haunted by his ghostChief of Staff Paul is two parts whiner one part hero He nearly abandons a group of twenty three children to save his own skin Forced into aiding them he manages to come off heroic in the end Is it just me or when hiding with someone else does their always seem to be that one idiot that makes noises or cries Okay okay I know I m being harsh and I should be understanding and all because it s a scared ittle boy and all But seriously I would probably find myself suffocating or slapping that kidFor my female readers out there if you ve watched Titanic you l get a kick out of this one McKinney
