Kagan McLeod is an avid fan of Martial Arts movies and has brought that love to the creation of an epic tale of Kung Fu, Immortals and Zombies. I read this lengthy tome in one sitting.The seven Immortals who watch over Earth are trying to unravel the damage done when they interfered with the natural order of events and assassinated an Evil Emperor. But this Emperor's Kung Fu was so strong that he was able to continue his rule for hundreds of years as a ghost. Now the world is beset by zombies, but a different kind of zombie--dead bodies animated by lesser souls who refuse to reincarnate as insects or vermin.In the tradition of Martial Arts, the work of vanquishing the villain should fall to the students of the Immortals, but most of those students have been corrupted mentally and spiritually by learning the poison Kung Fu. The responsibility of saving the world falls to a new recruit who embodies the best ideals of humanity--valour, honor and respect.

Do you like Kung Fu? Do you like zombies? If you don¿t...why the heck not? And if you do this book is perfect read for you. Heck even if you aren¿t a fan of Kung Fu you should still pick up this fun adventure and give it a read.Set in a post apocalyptic world where a catastrophe has forced the world to revert to ancient traditions and superstitions, and evil emperor and his five armies control the land. Seven of the eight immortals took apprentices to try to help avert the disaster and all but two defected to the emperor who has helped upset the balance of the world. This imbalance has led to the rise of zombies in the landscape and they¿re coming back faster than they can be killed. The last of the immortals, their leader, finally takes an apprentice an ex-solider named Yang Lei Kung. It is hoped that Yang is that one that is able to defeat the emperor and restore balance to the world, but he first must face many challenges. Along the way he¿ll meet the apprentices of the other immortals, face death, and fight a few zombies along the way.McLeod's ability to tell a story and relate to the reader is fantastic, even if you don¿t know anything about kung fu. While it helps to have some knowledge of kung fu to understand the story, McLeod creates a compelling world and characters, one that a reader will feel at home in and recognize as their own even though it¿s a different timeline. While the journey that the hero takes is a familiar one, it¿s still fun to see how he faces the challenges and what he¿ll do to overcome them at the end, often using his brains vs. kung fu. My one complaint with the story is that the end starts to drag out a bit long with more fighting and less story than I would like.The artwork is absolutely incredible and worth the price of the book alone. The style really reminds me a lot of older Japanese ink drawings and he captures that feel of grace and simplicity. Pen, brush, and ink create dynamic characters that move and dance gracefully on the page. It¿s a joy just to look at detail and time spent capturing the characters and backgrounds.Overall this is a fun read for all ages, regardless if you know much about kung fu or zombies. 4 out of 5 stars.
