Overview

For tween fans of R.L. Stine and Patrick Carman, this exciting final installment of the Gravediggers series is full of gross-out gore, humor, and “splattery mayhem” (Kirkus Reviews).

Severed limbs. Rotting flesh. Popping bones. Best friends Ian, Kendra, and PJ have seen it all, and they’ve spent the last few months risking their lives to rid the world of zombies. Now they face their biggest challenge yet: tracking down the vengeful ex-Gravedigger who is holding their mentor hostage in an abandoned underground city. Deep in the menacing caves of Kudus, time is running out for O’Dea, whose powers can be used to unlock a deadly curse.

If that weren’t enough, all the kids are keeping things from each other—secrets that threaten to break up the group and thwart their efforts to destroy the gruesome zombies that are crawling all over Kudus. Will their friendship survive this harrowing underground mission? Will they escape Kudus with their lives?

Editorial Reviews

VOYA, October 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 4) - Cynthia Winfield
Ian, Kendra, and P.J., all Gravediggers-in-training, embark on their third zombie-killing adventure as they set out to save their warden, O’Dea, from mortal danger in the lost city of Kudus. The story opens with an excerpt from The Warden’s Handbook, wherein readers learn that a zombie bite is a death sentence from which the bitten will return a mindless drone unless the specimen is destroyed. Subsequent chapters are narrated in a regular rotation by each of these seventh-grade students. Seeking O’Dea in the bowels of Earth, self-described “karmically assigned zombie assassins” battle the grossest undead yet encountered—including zombies that have melded together within the sewers to form a gelatinous mass through which the Gravediggers must slog. As they overcome increasingly dangerous situations, the trio marches bravely forward on their seemingly doomed quest. R.L. Stine’s front-cover endorsement prepares readers for a title appealing to fans of his Goosebumps series, and Entombed delivers fully. Rotating narrators give every reader someone with whom to identify—Ian, the athlete; Kendra, whose magical powers newly identify her as a warden; or P.J., the trio’s film-making zombie expert. Teachers may appreciate Kendra’s ability to work vocabulary words into her narration—and her calling attention to them as they appear (lilting, abate, phalanges)—and the series’ undoubted ability to enthuse fans of the undead, both male and female, including formerly reluctant readers. Reviewer: Cynthia Winfield; Ages 11 to 14.

    Thrills, Chills, and a Fitting Conclusion to an Awesome Trilogy

    I loved the first two "Gravediggers" books, but this one is definitely the best of the three. The cave setting is spooky and reminded me of classic video games like "Metroid" and "Castlvania". The zombies are more terrifying and disgusting than ever. And the ending...well, let me just say the final showdown does not disappoint.

    The strength of these books has always been the relationship between the three protagonists, and by now Krovatin knows his characters so well that they leap off the page. And even though the end provides satisfactory closure for the trilogy, it leaves open the possibility of new Gravediggers adventures. Yes, please!
