    A bit complicated...

    In the end, a bit complicated, but decent enough for a strong read.

    Must Read!

    It all comes down to this - Monster Planet. This book is the finale to David Wellington's zombie trilogy, and being a fan, and having read his vampire series, he has yet to disappoint.
    I wondered over to Amazon to get the info for this book, and noticed that the reviews were all over the board. I will admit it - this isn't your traditional zombie series. There are some readers that hardcore when it comes to monsters, and don't care to deviate from the hardened fast rules of what each monster is supposed to be. If you like your zombies slow, stumbling, and mindless, then this story might not be for you. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of your standard zombies in this series, but the author adds so much more to the walking dead that it makes it that much more terrifying for the living and the dead.
    "What can be so terrifying for the dead besides a bullet to the head?" you ask. How about the dead that can think? Zombies that are so smart, that they possess a dark magic that can bring the end of the world as we know it. The writer refers to them as 'lich', and they battle centuries-old ghosts that inhabit zombie bodies, and mummies that have reanimated without the slightest yearning for human flesh.
    In the first book we found one of these lich following orders of a ghost to destroy mankind. It is set six weeks after the zombie epidemic where ten percent of the population is the undead. The lich, Gary, rebels with his own intentions in mind - farming humans.
    The second book takes us back the beginning of the outbreak. Nilla finds herself dead, without any previous memories of herself. She follows her inner direction to head west but ends up finding the source of the infection.
    Monster Planet, the finale, brings back all the key players to finish the story. A war is being waged between the living and the dead, between those who want to rebuild the world, and those who want to end it all, and don't assume that you know which side wants what outcome.
    David Wellington does a wonderful job of writing in third person. I've always been biased to first person POV, but his books seem to suck me in, and I forget about how the story is being told. I was pleasantly shocked to find characters from this vampire series hidden within his zombie trilogy. He brings the two series together to give you a feeling that his world, is all one world. I look forward to sinking my teeth into his werewolf series.

    The finial chapter in this epic Zombie surivial series

    This book was amazing! It wrapped up the entire "Monster" series of books. The only thing I regret is that it was the last book of the series. If you like Zombies then I strongly recommend sitting down and taking this journey through the end of the world.
