In a post-apocalyptic far future, there is only one thing that can save the fragile civilizations humanity has cobbled together: the mechs. A ragtag crew of mech pilots must battle the undead hordes, cannibal tribes, and religious cults in a daily race to keep humanity safe. But now a threat worse than anything has surfaced and is growing stronger. The undead have reanimated in their own battle machines and created the rise of the Dead Mechs!

Dead Mech is a zombie-filled, post-apocalyptic, military scifi, mech action/adventure novel like no other!

"It's mechs. It's zombies. It's zombies in mechs. You already know you're going to buy it. So just get it over with." -New York Times Bestselling Author Scott Sigler

This book was a great read for any SCI-FI / HORROR FAN. ZOMBIES AND MECH become a hell of a combo!!!!! Great storyline and plot that make you want more after you finish the book.

This author exudes hubris in his preface when he brags about using a new style of writing called Drabble: 100 words per segment; no more, no less. He stays true to this style, at the cost of imagery, content, and immersion into the story. The viewpoints, or segments, change so rapidly as to occur with seconds of each other, creating a convoluted hodgepodge of confusing sights and sounds. The author boasts that "each word comes at a premium to meet the 100 word limit", to which one would question, and reasonably so, "Why?" I find myself, by the middle of this drabblefest, quickly becoming a zombie starved, not for human flesh, but for the slightest description of anything. If you are wondering what the world looks like, if you are aching to feel the heat of battle, if you crave the suspense of a zombie creeping up on a character, don't bother. Combat is relegated to solution in a matter of 100 words before resolution. The mechs aren't even described, except in whatever one can conjure from the cover of the book. Descriptions of ANYTHING are noticeably absent, leaving one to wonder what a zombie even looks like in this supposedly Wasteland world, since none are offered. A person? One is left not even caring if someone lives or dies, since the depth provided is superficial at best. I'm left, more often than not, scratching my own brain out as I try to figure out who is bad, or why I should care, as the scenes fly in 100 words. I have no idea what anything looks like.... bases, cities, people, sky, ground, mechs, zombies, or even the major encounters and battle scenes. Depth? You will find none here, since everything must take place in your own preconceived imagery of what things MAY look like. Even the climactic battles are resolved in 100 words. While the author's attempt at a new writing style will surely give birth to a wonderful classroom illustration at how not to write a novel, I can personally not have to revert to 100 words to describe how awful this book is. I can sum it all up in three words. Dead Mech Bad. ***
