It was 72 pages long on my Nook and it leads up to a longer book that one can buy but I think I'll skip it. The character development wasn't bad and the zombie action was alright, but it kinda lacked polish and punch. I can't hit them too much though as it did entertain me. They did a good job on the diseased ridden. I could see and feel that, but the zombie combat rang of a screen writer's script. Cut and dry. The characters really started off nicely but then I felt like there could of been more. The main reason I'm not going for the next book is the plot. Its kind of like a science fiction deal, but I'm not digging it.

The Earth has been invaded by aliens, who are using their advanced technology to raise an army of the living dead. Jubal Slate's home and everyone he loved was destroyed with this onslaught and he is out for vengeance. Along the way Slate takes on a small group of survivors who are willing to go with him to assist in taking out their enemy. As the small band trudges along they not only come have to fend off the flesh eating undead, but they learn that the aliens have bestowed some of their technology onto certain human survivors allowing them to control the hordes of undead. Now, the undead and their human leaders are heading to the same place where Slate and his crew believe to be ground zero. Dead Earth: The Vengeance Road was a bit rough for this reader to get through, as I didn't really like any of the characters. Jubal Slate and Jewel were the most likable characters. For Slate having lost all he loved in life, his mission is not necessarily to survive in this world, but to seek out revenge for what has happened. He has hardened himself to caring about anyone for fear of losing them as he did before. Jewel was a doll with a lot of spunk and kindness. She knew her way around firearms and wasn't afraid to take up arms and defend herself or her makeshift family. Jewel's brother Mike could have been VERY interesting, but I don't feel he was used to his potential until entirely too late. (my opinion) Mother was a big burly biker who found himself an unlucky "member" of a gang who's already psycho leader is given the ability to lead the undead as well. The undead in Dead Earth: The Vengeance Road were your typical slow moving, rotting pieces of flesh that just so happen to want to munch on you for dinner. The gore was pretty tame, but there were a couple of wonderfully written action sequences. Nobody did anything overly heroic...mostly they just did what any other person would do if in the same situation. While I know there are people out there who would not be able to function in this world, it irritates me to no end to read about them. I'm sorry, the world has ended, yes we are all scared...now stop hiding and screaming, grab a damn gun and shoot some zombies. The aliens, who are the creatures who brought all this death and destruction onto this world didn't play a big role at all. I found this interesting as I just figured that with them taking over the world and creating an undead army there would be a bigger role for them.
