The Anchor presents Alex's story, of how he got to lose faith in humanity. It impressed me because of two reasons. One I love Alex; he is one of my most favorite characters ever. And two, the events are very emotional and touching.
The Survivors, as you can probably tell by now, presents the story of three survivors in the Manhattan area. I failed to get what role these survivors will play in the future of Prototype, but we’ll probably see in the future comics (if there are any) and/or the Prototype 2 game.
And the final part, The Labyrinth, presents Sgt. James Heller - a badass marine who doesn't take shit from anyone. Oh, he's also the next Prototype 2 (video game) protagonist. Excited yet? I know I am!
Because it's an advance copy, the text is painfully difficult to read. Ouch, my poor little eyes. This is the only complaint I have about the book.
I would recommend Prototype 2 only for the fans of the game. The rest of you... I don't think you'll get much from what's going on. Unless you've read the first Prototype comic and enjoyed it. Which means you are a fan of the game. And now we have an endless circle going on.

What the hell?
But now I know why. Now I know…
My biggest problem was the story. They totally changed it, and not in a good way. I saw Alex on the cover so don’t blame me for expecting the story to be about him. That’s what I wanted, and not two detectives who do not exist in the game.
It could have been interesting though. This is seeing the whole story from a different perspective. Ok, cool. Then why make Alex be on the cover? It’s very misleading, especially since he made an appearance only three times or so.
The story is bad. They missed many important points; they could not even make it a bit interesting. The plot is crap. The dialogues are crap. The only good part is the art.
I’m actually surprised of how much I hated it. As a fan I would suggest you avoid this one, it’s not worth your time. (less)

My mood is purely YA PNR lately so here I was just browsing Goodreads for something good (since I’m bored of my to-read shelf) and I stumbled upon Blood Will Tell. Since the cover model (the dude one, not this edition’s one – duh – I’ll attach it at the end) is super-hot (BOOO Existence) I felt compelled AGAIN to read it. The title seemed good enough but the series.. Warriors of Ankh?? Really? ...
Hmm ok, I’m probably sadistic but I gave it a try. And I’m thanking my sadism for this one.
LOVED it! I don’t know if it’s because of my mood or not (I sure hope not) but this book was 95% perfect to me. So I guess I can tell you guys to try it.
Hey, you know what would be fun? Having an Evilbot (that hates your guts) as a friend. Wouldn’t that be fun? Imagine all the wonderful discussions that you’d have about your favourite books! And killing people! Wouldn’t that be fun? It sure would..
Well, guess what?
The Evilbot Diaries are here!
Me: Hello Evilbot! Evilbot: Hi Me: What's up? Evilbot: Plotting world domination. Me: Did you read Blood Will Tell? Evilbot: Yes. Twice, actually. It's my favorite book. Me: I know, right? It's so amazing! Evilbot: Yeah right! I'm enjoying having a conversation with you! Me: Did you like Noah? He's such a hottie.. Evilbot: Who? Me: Noah. Evilbot: I don't know Noah. Me: He's the main character in Blood Will Tell. I thought you said you've read it twice. Evilbot: What is your favorite sharp object? Me: Don't try to change the subject! You just lied to me about reading the book. You said it's your favourite book! Evilbot: Not at all. Why? Me: Why what? Evilbot: Nothing. Me: You're mocking me again, aren't you? Evilbot: No. Not everything is about you. Me: I hate you. Evilbot: I hate you more! Me: Ugh..
“You,” she spat. “You are dead to me, you hear me? You come anywhere near me again and I’ll rip your throat out. And you,” she warned Romany. “You better run and hide… because I’m going to destroy you for what you’ve taken from me.”[I’m in love with this chick!!]

Oh wait, I can actually do that....moreIf I could hug myself and kiss the hell out of my brilliant little huge (because I’m freakishly smart) brain I would! Oh wait, I can actually do that. At least the hugging part. Kissing my own brain might be difficult unless I turn into a zombie somehow. But then maybe I would be tempted to eat my own brain. Is that considered making out with it or not?
Anyways, Married With Zombies was such a great book! Well.. not really sooo great, but pretty nice. More than nice. Great. Is a three-star rating equal to great? No? Nice? No? WHATEVER THEN!
So yeah, it was really funny but something was missing. Some liiiiittle thing that wouldn’t make such a difference but at the same time it would make a big difference. Do you get what I mean?
I liked Sarah but the whole drama she’s making out of Dave’s video playing habit is annoying. My husband is a class-A gamer, as he would describe himself, and I’m not far away from his rank. I love playing video games and I see them as a perfect pastime activity. And since we’re both into it we have so much fun playing them together. Sarah bitching about it and not even trying to join Dave on the fun is crap from her side. And her hating Nirvana.. I’m not even going to comment about that.
But those things are minor and won’t affect my rating.
The sad part is that the book became quite boring after some time. I guess all zombie books have a point where they lose their originality. Thinking about it, the stories are the same: normal day at the office and all of the sudden your colleague John tries to bite your arm off. ZOMG everyone’s a zombie, RUN FOR COVER!!!!
And then the fun goes to hell. (Heh, hell. Get it?)
But you know why I actually liked this book? Because of the humor. It’s so fucking good! I mean check these quotes out:
“We — we’ve obviously had some technical difficulties, folks,” he finally said as he shook himself awake from his stunned fog. “But I assure you we’ll work to keep you updated on the situation with local coverage on the ground and try… well, we’ll try to get back with Henry shortly.”
Dave’s eyebrows lifted with disbelief. “Yeah. Henry’s a zombie, dude.”
I nodded. “We now go to Zombie Reporter Henry Greene on the scene,” I answered, mocking the CNN reporter’s cadence. “Henry want brains.”
The zombies stared, their heads turning in that odd doglike way that was so off-putting. I think we confused them. Okay, I know we confused them. I mean, they looked at each other with a few grunts like they were saying, “‘What do you think, Zombie Bob?’ ‘Well, I don’t know, Zombie Pete, let’s see what they do next.’”
Muahahahaha that’s so funny!!!!
Wait. They were totally better in the book. Oh well.(less)

I’d like to thank my wonderful fiancé for giving me this book as a gift. It is AMAZING. The stories are not the most interesting things on the surface of the planet but the artwork is badass. I’m a big fan of David Hartman and I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Plus a foreword by Rob Zombie. Rob-freakin’-Zombie! Big fan of him also. See how easy I am to buy? Goddammit!
I’m doing the next thing for the people who don’t know how the book goes.
So you have a page divided (and I mean divided as in cut into pieces) into three parts
Which can be combined endlessly!
So much fun! It makes me feel like I’m a kid again. But better because I’m playing with zombies! I’m a mad scientist!
