IW has the ability with his writing skill to make you love or loathe his characters, with the reality and emotions that he gives them.
He reminds me of the late, great James Herbert in his character building; devoting a whole chapter to a back story only to kill them off in some gruesome way but still managing to add to the story in a subtle way.
This second book throws a whole new twist into the mix, a new breed of zombie? The character of Talbot has a nasty thread but where will it lead?
This time IW concentrates most of the action on a small night club, which has amazing pies, made me hungry! Very random.
New people are thrown into the mix and the clashing of personalities brings a new element to the story.
The final showdown is pretty tense and the outcome is another cliffhanger moment begging you to read book no.3.
I did wonder why there was no mention of the group of survivors from book no.1
