Book Review – Ex-Patriots by Peter Clines
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book picks up some time after the events of the first book of the series, Ex-Heroes. This book does learn something from other zombie books my adding some twists to the zombie concept. The superheroes of the Mount continue to work to protect the survivors of Los Angeles. It would have been easy for the author to simply tell another hero versus zombie story, but he ups the ante this time around as the U.S. Military is brought into the mix.
The book isn’t perfect by all means. There are times when the characters sound remarkably similar. And a lot of what happens is telegraphed. But the action in the book will draw you in and keep you page turning until the end.
