Return of the zombiliciousness

First. A Huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book. Second. Please accept freshly baked applaud and gratitude from me for maintaining the sequel as exciting as the first one and not ruining the series. ;)

Usually the sequels ruin it for you or take it to a whole new level with plot diversions. Army of the Dead on the other hand was in my opinion a natural progression rather than bombarding the readers with unnecessary complications.I felt

Secrets, lies, and zombies. Devan has managed to write an equally satisfying follow-up to the first book in his YA series, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde.

I really have to train my brain to think "teen" when it comes to these types of reads where youngsters are put in big boy pants and made to make adult decisions and behave in a mature manner. We've all been there; the he said, she said, walk away without communicating, and making bad decision based on the "feelings" of others. Shoot,

Army of the Dead picks up where Rise of the Horde left off, for the most part. Actually the “present” is many months later, but Sagliani does a nice job of bringing the reader up to speed. He also gave me quite the heart attack in the very first chapter! No warm up.. just insanity. Xander is now married to Felicity, but it doesn’t take long for issues to arise. Note to self: Just because there are hordes of zombies that want to eat you, no one is safe from marital problems including a jealous sp ...more

Devan Sagliani, returns with the enthralling sequel to the ever so amazing, Zombie Attack: Rise of The Horde and I was hooked!

Army of The Dead, had me wishing for more—the story begins where it left off in book one with Xander reaching his brother's camp, surviving a zombie's bite, and asking Felicity to marry him. Then, it fast-forwards to their married life and how much this, “disaster” is affecting their relationship—constantly having to fear the Z's and the results of it is paranoia and a ro

I loved the first book in this series. It was the perfect blend of YA and Horror and Zombies. So when the second book was offered to me by the author for review, I of course said yes! ZA2 had all the same elements I loved about the first book. This book has a more mature feel to it than the first book, but that is to be expected. Hell, Xander is a married man now. I think living in a world filled with zombies would make anyone grow up. It'd also tend to make things just a bit more desperate and ...more

When author Devan Sagliani offered me a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, I agreed even though the subject matter really doesn't bite me (pun intended). But just because I'm an orderly person, I started with the first one - Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde - and found it to be quite good, earning 4 stars from me as well.

This book continues the adventures of 16-year-old Xander Macnamara, who lives in a country that has been overtaken by all sorts of not-very-nice creatures, from fl

Army of the Dead is a fast-paced novel that incorporates a variety of genres into that of the zombie apocalypse. There is plenty of action, gore for horror, and enough different settings and excitement to make a solid adventure. From beginning to end, readers will be hooked, and it is definitely a killer ride.

Everything that I liked about Rise of the Horde only seemed to be amplified in the sequel. There were hardly any slow points, and the pages kept easily turning. The problems continued to l

Having read the truly excellent first book in the Zombie Attack series, Rise of the Horde, I really looked forward to reading Army of the Dead. I was just a little disappointed as this book doesn't contain the level of excellence, character development, and depth as the first book.

Army of the Dead starts with a bang, literally. A furious pace of motorbike chases, abductions, vicious fighting and numerous zombie attacks is set right from the start of the book. In fact, there is so much violence

ABR's full Army of the Dead (Zombie Attack!, Book 2) audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

After listening to the first book in this series, I found it to be a no brainer to listed to this book 2 in the Zombie Attack! series. While book 1 was pretty good, I am really hoping that Sagliani can grow his story telling from pre-pubescent to at least mid-adolescent.

Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed Rise of the Horde. But from there, there is so much room for growth.

I received this book to give an honest review.

We leave off right where book one and some time has elapsed. Xander and Felicity are living on the base now. But everyone is not just normal still.
There are still zombies but at least they have a break in on the fighting.
That is until Xander who bless his heart is a sixteen year old trying to grow up and make grown folk decisions, finds himself married to Felicity and then finds himself captured by the enemy. Which we find out that there is a bounty

'Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead' is the second book in Sagliani's YA horror series and the story only gets darker for Xander and Felicity Jane as their fight for survival within a terrifying apocalyptic landscape continues.

I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this brilliant follow up to 'Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde' and I devoured this book greedily, eager to get back to the awesome story and characters. This review contains a mild spoiler for the first book so you should reall

I received a free audio copy of this book for an honest review.

Zombies aren’t my favorite story line but I have found that if the characters are good and there are other interesting story lines in a book, that I can put up with the zombies. That was the case in Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead.

I didn’t read the first Zombie Attack book, Rise of the Horde, but #2 stands on its own. I hope to find the time to read book #1 in the near future.

All of the characters are unique, some are endearing. Xand

The start was a bit slow but after the few beginning chapters the action picked up again, weaving a tale of conspiracy and deception.

We meet up with some new, kind-hearted people, but mostly it’s the old characters coming back to take their revenge.

Mr. Sagliani, through Xander’s thoughts, develops the character, unveils his growth and potential as a person.

This second book takes off a little while after the first book ends (and you do really have to read the first one to "get" the second one). So I would say, this is not a stand alone book.

Again, like the first - lots of action, lots of adventure. This one was just a tiny bit not as exciting for me as the first, but still a very good Zombie read that Zombie lovers will enjoy!

"He's not going to eat my brother! Not while I'm still alive!"

Zombie Attack 3

This is the third book in this series and it has been the best one yet. I love the never stopping action and the great characters. Of course my favorites are Moto and Zander who also happen to be the main characters. If you like this genre then this series should definitely be one to read. You will not be story. I'm not and I can't wait until the next one.

I thoroughly enjoy a book that can take you to the worst possible places and events, but still end up keeping your morals and values in check.
