Xombies : Apocalypso

Xombies: Apocalypso by Walter Greatshell is the third book in a trilogy. The Xombies series is a futuristic post-apocalyptic with a blend of horror, science fiction and dark humor. The experimental and highly contagious Agent X plague infected women first, turning mothers, daughters, and sisters into killer's intent on spreading their contagion, turning most of the human race into Xombies. Now Lulu Pangloss and her Xombiefied crew are wandering the seasons on a mission of what they believe is to be mercy. They are converting the last mortal humans into immortal beings like themselves. In their eyes, it is the only way mankind will be able to survive a cataclysm that will wipe out all life on Earth. However, Lulu and her shipmates are about to learn that there are worse fates than death.

The book has some nifty creepy scenes and there is a thread of desperation in the people trying to survive, but at the same time it has some darkly humorous moments that stand out among the action and for me that is what truly keeps my interest. The story goes quickly and sometimes that is to the determent of the plot as it can get confusing to readers that are new to the series with all the plot threads that weave out through the story. The ending resolves itself fairly quickly and easily. Overall I give this title three and a half stars and a recommend score for fans of zombies who would like a different spin regarding this popular "monster". I would also recommend it for those who like Resident Evil and movies along those lines. It contains lots of action and violence to satisfy anyone's need for a high body count in a survivor setting.
