Aug 07, Darcy Leerhoff rated it it was amazing Shelves: zombie , series , 4 , own , own-bot. Awesome book but what's more awesome is that one of the zombie characters goes to my hometown Madrid, Iowa to feed! Slowed down a bit This book slow down a little bit from the previous books but it's still everything that I like in a series of zombie novels I said everything in all my other reviews nothing's changed the series is one of the best I've ever read.
Aug 03, C. Phipps rated it really liked it Shelves: zombies. It is to the credit of authors Kirk Allmond and Laura Bretz they've managed to do what very few authors have done: make a continuing zombie series which remains interesting after the initial premise.
Zombies are a great source of drama but rarely are the tales something which goes beyond the discovery, initial outbreak, and survival at a location.
edutoursport.com/libraries/2020-09-07/463.php It takes imagination to move beyond these concepts. And these two have imagination.
The premise of What Zombies Fear is Victor It is to the credit of authors Kirk Allmond and Laura Bretz they've managed to do what very few authors have done: make a continuing zombie series which remains interesting after the initial premise. The premise of What Zombies Fear is Victor Tookes is the father of young son, Max, and possessed of an immunity to zombie bites. Furthermore, his immunity comes with mild-superpowers. Gathering a group of similar individuals empowered by their bites, they attempt to rid the world of zombies. Opposing them is Laura, who is the head of the "intelligent" zombies which psychically control the billions of undead creatures swarming the planet.
Fracture is where everything goes to hell. Critics of What Zombies Fear have indicated they found Victor Tookes a little too perfect, his leadership too unquestioned, and things going too swimmingly for our protagonists. I found these elements to be charming and was willing to overlook how well things were going for Victor in the name of watching the zombies get there's.
Really, aside from the Resident Evil movies, the zombies never lose these things. The breakup between Leo and Victor Tookes is painfully realistic. Brought about by Victor refusing to give her more than the superficial relationship they had, I was affected. I'd wanted these two to be able to work it out but, unlike other series where such would only be a roadblock to romance, I was left with the impression this was going to stick.
The fact the other members of the group were starting to turn against Victor too felt sudden but, remembering the previous volume, had been been in the works for some time. The drama is big in this book with some genuinely moving moments, unexpected deaths, and surprising twists.

The character of Krista, who I was quite fond of in the previous volume, reveals herself to be bisexual and becomes involved with another female character. I liked this twist as it provides much-needed diversity in a genre which used to be one of the most in fiction but has kind of become more heterosexual male-dominated white-bread over the years. The fact it's not a major deal to any of the characters is also a point in the authors' favor. Sadly, I can't give this book a solid 10 out of 10 for a couple of reasons. The first is one of the book's main subplots deal with a military base having degenerated into misogynist slavers.
I didn't much care for the plotline in 28 Days Later and it feels exploitative here, a way of making the human enemies irredeemable from the start. This is a personal pet peeve of mine and I was hoping to never see this sort of subplot again. I've seen much-much worse, believe me. In conclusion, Fracture is a very different book from the previous ones. It's far darker and the next book which I've already read gets darker still. For some, this will be a welcome change but it left me feeling uncomfortable in places.
I can't hold strong dramatic weight against it but almost feel like it would have been better to stay a series about Victor killing zombies forever. Apr 25, Joline Novy rated it it was amazing. Another great Victor Tookes adventure from Allmond and Bretz!! I'm flying through this series. I actually finished it this morning but jumped right into the 5th book and didn't get to the review of book 4 until now.
One big improvement I noticed from book 3 to book 4 is how the writers are getting better more imagination, clever, grammar, etc I'm so ecstatic because these are really terrific stories and I'd hate to see them get poor reviews be Another great Victor Tookes adventure from Allmond and Bretz!! I'm so ecstatic because these are really terrific stories and I'd hate to see them get poor reviews because of the lack of editing or immaturity early on.
Right from book 1 I could see the potential that this story had and now I'm on book five and its only getting better. Congrats to Kirk Allmond and Laura Bretz for continuing with their ideas and writing so well together!! As in all zombie series there's always people dying and although I know it's coming it still makes me tear up when charachters I love meet their end. And in Fracture Tookes and his group has some terrible losses but also some happy reunions.
I love that the superpowers of our main charachters are still growing and they are still finding new ways to fight superzombies and sadly also other superhumans. Can't wait to see what happens next! The "super hero" team has shrunk slightly. One must expect this in war, but it's a shame to see characters go that you've become familiar with.
When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order… Now people hear a commercial for sour cream potato chips and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. At least the ancient Greeks were being honest. The zombie is a monster of majority, unlike its vampiric and lupine counterparts, as those in our society who are given to the consumer instinct are a majority and the few individuals who criticize capitalism from within it are persecuted and defamed in the way that zombies will swarm and attack an uninfected human.
In addition, the zombie is a mechanism of annihilation; while vampires are a small minority living in the underground of a human world, feeding to survive, the zombie horde exists only for the purpose of consuming or converting all humans until the species is extinct and the paradigm shifts to a world inhabited only by zombies. In World War Z, the sundering of the zeitgeist in the United States shatters the pre-existing capitalistic and highly individualized philosophy of the masses and opens up the populace, through their vulnerability, to survival only through communal life and cooperation.
One can infer from the critiques of both capitalism and communism that Brooks supports neither in his writing, adding another layer to the zombie-capitalist.
