My Thoughts: With most book series they tend to lose their initial spark in their follow-ups, however that is not the case with Dead Days Season Three. Just when you think you’ve got everything sussed out Ryan Casey throws in another spanner in the works. In Season Three you follow Riley, Pedro and Chloe as they take individual routes to a ‘safe-place’ in Manchester. Riley teams up with a man who claims to have the cure. Pedro teams up with an unusual family, and Chloe, unfortunately, stumbles across the darker side of humanity.
I am absolutely terrible at watching any kind of horror film, I’m the one person who screams even at the really obvious jumpy scenes. I’ve been told off for my screaming, because my screams make my friends scream and curse (they still love me though). I’m also the type of person who won’t sleep for a week after watching said horror film, and if i do sleep, I’ll definitely have nightmares. Anyhow, this doesn’t stop me from watching The Walking Dead (I love it) or from reading Zombie books.
If you’re a UK resident and a fan of the Walking Dead like I am, then you’re going to love Ryan Casey’s Dead Days.
****The Following Section May Contain Spoilers****
Here are 17 books, I think, have unusual twists and/or concepts. I’ve read them all, but please note they are in no particular order. Hope you find something you enjoy!
1) Partials by Dan Wells (part of a trilogy)
A Young Adult, Science fiction, Dystopian, Fantasy. I’ve suggested an age range for this book of 15+. Partials is unusual in my opinion because it is about engineered, organic beings called ‘Partials’, who were made by and are identical to, humans. Ok so this has been done before, but Dan Wells has an awesome writing style and has added a couple of extra twists. War has devastated the planet, and Partials and humans are sworn enemies. It has a sort of ‘I, Robot’ feel to it, but what really makes this novel different is the fact that both the humans and the Partials are slowly dying. The two enemies will have to set aside their past wrongs and differences in order to survive.
