HARVEST OF THE DEAD: Zombies are Monsters, TooAny zombie enthusiast/ activist will tell you that the truth about zombies is that they are not really monsters at all, but a simple shuffling, dripping backdrop for the real horror. The fall of society.

The evil inherent in humankind. The bane of humanities egotistical view on controlling nature.Which is one of the reasons I enjoyed HARVEST OF THE DEAD Ian Woodhead and Christine Sutton make it perfectly clear that their zombies are horrific, violent, cannibalistic and power mad monsters.Set in Vermont, HARVEST OF THE DEAD takes the safe haven, post Z-apocalypse town of Greendale Falls and expedites the degradation of society with the onset of martial law and growing debauchery, then turns the whole thing on its head with immediate outbreak.

The traditional “real” monsters are exposed from the beginning, the politically corrupt, the sexist, the bully, the glutton, all of the typical fun cast of a good necrotic read and then some.Then Woodhead and Sutton throw in their monsters. The undead come in different forms and are more reminiscent of RESIDENT EVIL at times, making for quite a fun if not scary ride. And the writer’s pull no stops on gore, insane acts of violence, and sex. Yes, that’s right, there is enough sex to turn even you necrophiles into a drooling mess.The pacing is fast and the chapters short enough to make for a great read, and the plot drives on with enough positive/ negative exchange to keep it interesting.

At times there are too many subplots, but fortunately the writers dispatch those usually within the same chapter in which they are introduced, kind of leading me to believe this book came with an appetizer menu.As far as the characters, the POV shifts are done fairly well, although most of the adults tend to have the same over all voice depending on their good/evil polarization, but as the POVs turn to teens and tweens, the writing became most impressive. I had to applaud the midgrade POV in particular.

One down side I found was that there is very little room for character growth, and I felt that was in part to the amount of players in this story.Finally, the theme of poetic justice prevails to the very end and the book has moments when you can’t help but feel a little victory for the good people of Greendale Falls.Overall, I found HARVEST OF THE DEAD to be a fast paced and enjoyable read, and am hoping to see more of this style in the upcoming KINGDOM OF THE DEAD.

I definitely recommend it for the zombie-slayers/lovers, and leave you with a word of advice. Watch for wall crawlers.
