This sequel to Ex-Heroes continues the story of a group of Los Angeles superheroes and civilians vs. zombies. I know, I know, but it was fun, what can I say? The book is well-written, as the action changes from downtown LA (where snipers vie in a point system to take out celebrity zombies) to the desert, where the heroes discover a military base with surviving army personnel. The base contains enhanced soldiers that may or may not be the psycho-military from most zombie movies. An intriguing set of heroes are featured, mainly St. George, the fire-breathing "Superman" of the group, Stealth, a female Batman, and Zzap, a hero with electric-based powers. The book had a fun plot, thrills, and the constant sense of doom that most zombie stories have, but still manages to be a solid adventure/superhero tale and ends on an up note. This and the previous book are recommended, if you like this sort of thing.
Rating: *** 1/2 out of 5 stars
