Overview

The thrilling conclusion of the zombie apocalypse begun in PLAGUE TOWN and continued in PLAGUE NATION! The zombie plague has gone airborne, and the conspiracy that began it all reaches the boiling point.
 
Having been ambushed in San Francisco, which is now fully engulfed in the zombie plague, Ashley and the wild cards must pursue the enemy to San Diego. There they will discover a splinter of their own organization, the Dolofónoi tou Zontanoús Nekroús, which seeks to weaponize the plague. But that isn't the worst news. The plague has gone airborne, making it transferable without physical contract. It cannot be controlled by anyone, so reports of the zombie swarm are coming in from across the United States - and across the world.

A sad fact of modern culture is that everything has to run in threes...or until the franchise stops making money. It has become part of the zombie sub-culture as well.  Dana Fredsti has written the third part of her Ashley Parker trilogy (I assume) and picks up right where Plague Nation left off - in San Francisco among boatloads of zombies. The bad news is that Ashley's boyfriend has been spirited off to parts unknown. The worse news is that the virus has gone airborne, meaning the humans on planet earth are in the process of being counted out. There are the usual zombie antics - unexpected turns, unusual characters and lots and lots of pop culture references. In fact, I will say that Ashley Parker could've used more smart aleck and a whole lot less Wired/Nerdist references. And if I read the 10,001st reference to "Thor's Wee Hammer", I was seriously going to riot.  Installment #3 isn't much different than its preceding books; it's telling the same story of zombie contagion, zombie killing, BIG CONSPIRACY and drama in the race to find a cure. The problem is that Ashley's family doctor is working on a cure, and based off the interludes (in italics), there aren't going to be many humans left to inoculate - that is, if you can find them. There is this sense of urgency that is sort of misapplied -- I mean, what's the hurry now? Closing the barn door doesn't bring the horse back. The book is to be commended for the fight scenes - they are well written and quite descriptive. And, just in case you needed a SAW fix since they're not making those movies anymore, we get a little torture porn. I will say that it is graphic and will also admit to being creeped out by it. Yet, even in this situation when Fredesti is seeking to give you some horror, she *just* can't resist making a pop culture reference that causes the tortured to laugh (albeit slightly). *sigh* Mood: RUINED.  Still, the fact that the book ends with a loose end or two is commendable, as well as the Epilogue which is the last interlude but one that gives you a sense of optimism that humanity may rise again. BOTTOM LINE: A good pulp horror read; nothing more, nothing less.

The story was a little less engaging in this third book of the trilogy. There was obviously an effort made to tighten it up in editing, which was nice, but the book could've done well with a little rewriting to focus the story.

A zombie book with hearts, guts, brains and humor, “Plague World” is a must read for any and all zombie fans! There were ups and downs (and oh, the downs really, really got to me) and plenty of thrills. There was tons of action, just a touch of romance and more chills than you can count! The ending was....difficult. Difficult both because of the fact that the series is over and because of certain events. However, it was not gratuitously difficult, what happened really felt as if it needed to happen. So, even though I was saddened, I felt as if the story went where it had to go. And, on the not depressing side, the geek references rocked! I consider myself a card carrying geek and I'm still not sure I got all of the references (“going to need a bigger boat”; “can't stop the signal Mal”; “arguing over who was the best Doctor”; and many, many more – don't want to give too many away, that takes the fun out of finding them!). You really do need to read the first two books in the trilogy before this one (“Plague Town” and “Plague Nation”) but if you haven't already dove into those, you're really in for a treat! If you have read the previous two, you know what to expect and believe me, “Plague World” delivers! (Oh, and the furry ones live so that's good!)
