The setting for the book starts with 12 year old Zombie slayers Ian, Kendra and PJ. We are no longer in the mountains of Montana but headed for Puerto Rico, hot and sweaty Puerto Rico. They are on a vacation from Zombie hunting. They hear about a cursed island, Isla Hambrienta. Why is this island cursed? Well, it seems like some of the most dangerous Zombies colonies are there. They were much worse than the ones the kids had defeated in Montana. The vacation comes to a quick halt when they find themselves stranded on the cursed island. The meaning of the name of the island is "the hungry island". The Zombie slayers watched as the corpses came staggering out of the water.
The author uses all three of the kid’s ideas and he even added a little puppy love in there. The three are torn apart because of Kendra's crush on Danny. Will they defeat the Zombies? Will they get off the island alive? What will happen to their friendship?
The author wrote a good book for the young and those who like Zombies. This book is a little different from others I've read. Its youngsters against the Zombies. For myself, I guess I'm getting a little tired of the same old Zombie stories. Still I'm looking forward to Mr. Krovatin's next book. There will be one, won't there? Young ones will definitely love this book. Zombies are the thing today.
Action, laughs, and thrills make Terror Cove an exciting second book in the Gravediggers series, which R.L Stine, author of Goosebumps, called "fast, frightening, and all too real!"
Newly crowned zombie slayers Ian, Kendra, and PJ are on a family vacation in the tropics when they are warned about a cursed island called Isla Hambrienta. What none of them expect to find is a zombie colony much stronger than the one they defeated on the mountain—and another presence on the island that's way more dangerous than the creatures they're supposed to turn to dust.
Fans of creepy books like Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman will love Christopher Krovatin's wild stories about zombies and the kids who defeat them.
