Overview

The second novel in Peter Clines' bestselling Ex series.

It's been two years since the plague of ex-humans decimated mankind. Two years since the superheroes St. George, Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth gathered Los Angeles’s survivors behind the walls of their fortress, the Mount.
 
Since then, the heroes have been fighting to give the Mount’s citizens hope, and something like a real life. But now supplies are growing scarce, the zombies are pressing in . . . and the heroes are wondering how much longer they can hold out. 
 
Then hope arrives in the form of a surviving US Army battalion—and not just any battalion. The men and women of the Army's Project Krypton survived the outbreak because they are super-soldiers, created before mankind's fall to be better, stronger, faster than normal humans—and their secure base in Arizona beckons as a much needed refuge for the beleaguered heroes and their charges.
 
But a dark secret lies at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it wield an awesome and terrifying power. 

Editorial Reviews

In Peter Clines' debut February release Ex-Heroes, Stealth, Gorgon, Cerberus, and other superheroes gathered survivors of the plague of the living dead into a safe Los Angeles fortress. Now two years have passed; supplies are dwindling and the zombies are knocking, no pounding, at the door. In this standalone sequel, Clines introduces new heroes even while maintaining the insistent intensity of the plot. A mass-market paperback and NOOK Book original; definitely one to be recommended.

Ex-Patriots by Peter Clines was calling my name after having just finished reading Ex-Heroes and, boy howdy, did it deliver. Packed with every bit as much action as it's predecessor, Ex-Patriots introduces us to the Unbreakables, a group of super soldiers led by Freedom a true American patriot, Dr Sorensen, the doctor who figured out how to create the super soldiers and Mr. Smith, the man who is behind the notion of having super soldiers. There are other new characters, including a new Hero and, of course Zzzap, St George, Stealth and Cerberus are back to entertain us. (YAY for a Buffy reference and a special 'cameo' of a Whedonverse alum) Initially I thought the plot of Ex-Patriots was going to be extremely cliche and was not necessarily going to give up hope, but was not going to hold my breath that Ex-Patriots would be nearly as good as Ex-Heroes. I was wrong...in my opinion, it was better. It would be best for a reader to read the books in order, as there is not a lot of character development for the Heroes we were introduced to in the first book. I do not want to say much more about the book, because I don't want to chance any type of spoiler...as I said there was an element of predictability to the plot, but then all of a sudden KERPOW! I was hit with a HOLY GUACAMOLE, BATMAN moment, thus not wanting to chance spoilers. Fast paced, full of action, humor and heroism, Ex-Patriots is a zombie/superhero book for true American readers (and anyone out of States, too).

A superior sequel (and we all know how rare those are) to a damned good book. New characters, new twists... I'm on edge waiting for the next one!

This has to be one of my favorite zombie books of all time. I would highly recomend it to anyone who wants an action packed superhero zombie book.

A well written continuation. Enough action to keep you reading. Unlikely that zombies go with superheroes, but Clines does an excellent job. Well worth it.

A great sequel. Phenomenal series, with a fun premise. Superheroes meets Zombies, with a twist. Read Ex-Heroes first.

I loved the first novel (Ex-Heroes) and this is a very worthy follow-up. The expansion of the world outside The Mount is great and i thought the introduction of the super soldiers was awesome. Looking forward to the next book!

Peter Clines proves that zombies and comics can be put together in a compelling story that deserves your attention. Funny at times thanks mostly to zzzap but never over the top like most people who approach either subject. Clines is obviously a fan of both genres and it shows in his work. Hollywood take notice!

The peasy twist was great.

This is a great book, and a good continuing of the story that was begun in Ex-Heroes. Twists, turns, and zombies... What more could you ask for?

This was the weakest book in the series for me, but it was still so great.

Ex-Patriots continues the story of the survivors from the mount. Written in the same style as the first book in the series, book 2 adds some additional characters and villains as well. The book offers a good amount of action without any character development, essentially when you want to be a mindless reader reading about mindless zombies this is your book. Fun action without getting too deep.
