Zombies of Chronos is set in 2135, when inhabitants of the planet Chronos (described in previous adventures) have successfully closed the worm hole connecting their galaxy with another and thus liberated their world from the tyrannical Mining Syndicate, leaving them self-sufficient and isolated. But even though they're rebuilding their world, they're not free from threats elsewhere; including aliens of the future whose bodies, flash frozen during space battle, are reanimating with unusual modifications and dangerous abilities, forcing Zach's crew into yet another impossible series of confrontations. Familiarity with the prior Chronos books is recommended (but not absolutely essential) to absorbing the fast-paced events in Zombies as the colony faces its greatest challenge yet: the specter of a seemingly-endless supply of reanimated soldiers with high-tech abilities It also should be mentioned that readers should cultivate a sense of humor and an ability to pick up the tongue-in-cheek dances between protagonists along the way: an unexpected facet in a story that centers on a new breed of human telepaths on a planet riddled with problems. Ciolli's approach can best be categorized as 'military science fiction with a side dish of humor' - an unusual pairing in any sense of a genre read - and will appeal to followers of military science fiction who enjoy a dash of levity injected into scenes that would otherwise likely become overly steeped in serious confrontations and angst. Here is a military sci-fi plot that is satisfyingly unpredictable, punctuated with moments of levity and fun, and replete with witty descriptions of alien/human encounters, special abilities newly recognized, and time-traveling fiascos between telepaths who are facing a new breed of zombies sporting special abilities and a passion for biting off more than they can chew.
