Overview

Underground: Revelations

The war the world feared finally came except this was a different kind of war. One fought between the living and the dead. The living lost.

Liam, a former soldier in the war against the dead, had done everything he could to hold back the enemy but in the end he joined the other survivors in the only safe place left— underground.

Now Liam helps keep the last of the living safe in the subway tunnels, scavenging food by day, hiding by night, all the while haunted about how they lost the world above them. He always believed the dead had help but he could never prove it.

He would soon learn he was right all along and that there is no safe place to hide from extinction—underground just might turn out to be everyones tomb after all.

I had the great opportunity to read a copy of John Grover's new zombie thriller in return for a review, and can honestly say that I enjoyed it from start to finish. Had the pleasure of reading it over several days as I commuted into/out of the city this week. As the story takes place in shadowy subway tunnels, it added to my imagination. I rank Book 1 of this new trilogy right up there with MR Carey's "The Girl with All the Gifts" and Stephen King's "Cell". Let's face it, zombie chillers have been done to death (pardon the pun) and "The Walking Dead" has run out of fresh ideas and shambles along at a dull pace. It is refreshing to introduce you to John Grover's take on the apocalypse, and the fresh, new ideas he's added that will take you by surprise. Yes, it has shambling, brain-eating zombies. Plenty of them. But John is slick enough to pepper in some new twists and horrors, that gave me shivers and kept me guessing what would happen next. There is a vast list of characters who seem recognizable and worthy heroes to root for. There are characters we don't trust, and nor should we. There are some very fine moments, for example when a cruel character takes a moment to care tenderly for his demented spouse. An unexpected touch for someone who has been painted as a despicable figure. The heroes are very memorable and likeable right off. I rooted for Liam, Reed, Seamus, Noah, Owen, and Abbey, and I was captivated as their story lines played out. Tension builds over the course of the book, leading us to a thrilling climax that will leave you emotionally satisfied. John has clearly thought about what each character adds to his story, and they behave just as I would expect them to in a real-life tragedy. There were unexpected moments that deepened my emotions for them and their plights. As the story raced to it's finale, I didn't want to leave these characters behind and am very eager to know what will happen next! The idea of hiding from hordes of flesh-hungry corpses in the musty, dank underground tunnels is the perfect setting to keep an audience uneasy, similarly to how "The Strain" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan used that idea. Bravo John, for breathing new life into a rotting theme in horror. I am waiting eagerly for Book 2!
