A group of women have been discovered who are immune to the Agent X plague. The secret of their immunity can provide a cure for human and inhuman alike-unless the Xombies find them first.
Xombies: Apocalypso is the third book in this epic series, and because I didn’t read the first two books, there was a lot I didn’t understand. Yet, that didn’t stop me from getting sucked into the intense, satirical world created by Greatshell. Though I would recommend that anyone new to this series definitely start with the first book, Xombies: Apocalypse Blues.
Xombies are unlike any other zombies I have ever read about. Instead of being simply brain hungry zombies, these Xombies actually miss their humanity and attempt to reenact life before the plague. Not only that, but they believe that the apocalypse is near and only those infected with the Xombies virus can survive.
Lulu Pangloss was the unofficial leader of the Xombies and their quest to save the world. Despite her objections against the position, she was a strong leader, albeit stubborn. Xombies: Apocalypso is told mainly from Lulu’s point of view, but does jump around to show what a few others (who, I’m guessing were important in the previous books) are up to.
The plot was a bit slow at first, with not a lot of action but the dry humor and unique twists kept me engrossed in the story until the action picked up.
With several references to The Beatles and their songs, Xombies that just want to be human again and a twisting plot, Xombies: Apocalypso is no ordinary zombie horror story.
