I really wanted to give this book 5 stars like I did the first one. I like Mike Talbot, his family and friends. Mr. Tufo has made me care about them over the last two books. Mike is a funny and thoughtful narrator through the circles of Hell that they have been traveling in this book and the last. But I have a couple problems with this book that kept it from the elusive 5th star. The First is that Tracy wasn't kept in character. Under zed attack we would all show signs of stress but who we aren't won't change. In the first book Tracy was on Mike and the boys about swearing even after the dead walked and in the second book she would make a sailor blush and was taking the Lord's name in vain. It just seemed very OOC. The other two problems I had will put under spoiler tags since they are more intricate to the plot.

(view spoiler)

My favorite part of this book was kind of insignificant. Some people were leaving the group and of course it was a sad moment. But after they left what really drove it home was Mike talking about how once they were out of sight they never saw them again and never knew what happened to them. It really brought home the idea that in that new world out of sight was the same as dead. It was a little mind blowing.
