    Return of the zombiliciousnessFirst. A Huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book. Second. Please accept freshly baked applaud and gratitude from me for maintaining the sequel as exciting as the first one and not ruining the series. ;)Usually the sequels ruin it for you or take it to a whole new level with plot diversions. Army of the Dead on the other hand was in my opinion a natural progression rather than bombarding the readers with unnecessary complications.I felt that the plot of the second book had very convincingly brought up the characters and events from the first book and culminating it into a nice and air tight finale.. Also i loved how the cheat sheets were available for the readers to help them remember the characters and events from the first book. The second book fare in terms that the book has beautifully ended what it started without getting into too much twists and deviation from the original story line and keeping the characters intact and strong just as with the first book.You never would feel that the plot or the characters have changed drastically as it happens with other series. What i love about this entire series is the fact that the plot never sees a dull momentas when you least expect, the author bombards you with events and turns that make your eyes go wide. This keeps the thrill factor alive for the book and makes it a joyous ride.I love how the author plays trick on you keeping you engrossed in the entire series. Technically the book is filled with everything that is to a boy's childhood fantasy. Wild wild west,movie star wife, cowboys, action, muscles, bikers, zombies, cults and a whole lot many. The best part is that in spite of all these elements sounding mismatched, in the book you will see how these things are beautifully weaved into the story. For example, if somebody tells you that a page will have zombies, guns,bikers, native Indians and cowboys together, then you will probably call it crazy or that it is a recipe for disaster. But let me tell you that it is possible and in fact can be so good that you will pull your hairs thinking how the author worked this all out...i am still wondering Army of the dead is everything as promised as by the first book and the series returns with an even brilliant plot that has a whole new bunch of characters along with all the characters from the previous book returning to tell a new exciting story that is full of thrills and turns and amazing as ever. It definitely rides high on adrenaline and with no dull moments to it. Its every childhood fantasy of yours coming alive and giving you an absolute fantastic reading experience.

    3.5 StarsSecrets, lies, and zombies. Devan has managed to write an equally satisfying follow-up to the first book in his YA series, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde.I really have to train my brain to think "teen" when it comes to these types of reads where youngsters are put in big boy pants and made to make adult decisions and behave in a mature manner. We've all been there; the he said, she said, walk away without communicating, and making bad decision based on the "feelings" of others. Shoot, some of us still do it and we're all grown up.Xander seems to be maturing throughout this read. Maybe it's the ones around him that he's unconsciously learning from or he's just hit his head against the wall too many times and is set on going a different route. I think it's more the latter. Left to his own devices he sometimes rushes in headfirst.Felicity balances him out, even though she's dealing with jealously and other emotional issues of her own. I give her credit for staying true to who she is.Xander and friends always seem to get "caught' and "escape" more than enough. It starts to get irritating to read about. Maybe that's just me. I didn't count, but when you think of a certain scene it's "Oh, yeah! When they were being held hostage on the train" and so on.I'm biased. I like Sagliani's Adult stories better.Having said all that this is a good addition to the series. Unexpected meetings occur and long-lost relationships are reestablished. No time for boredom. Non-stop action keep this read flowing smoothly without too many hiccups. A meaty story, worthy of a read.

    Army of the Dead picks up where Rise of the Horde left off, for the most part. Actually the “present” is many months later, but Sagliani does a nice job of bringing the reader up to speed. He also gave me quite the heart attack in the very first chapter! No warm up.. just insanity. Xander is now married to Felicity, but it doesn’t take long for issues to arise. Note to self: Just because there are hordes of zombies that want to eat you, no one is safe from marital problems including a jealous spouse. Xander seems much older to me in this installment. He’s had to grow up quite a bit with everything he’s been through, not to mention he’s now the leader of a survivors camp called Freedom Town — which royally pisses him off. Things heat up relatively fast in this second book, and I found myself wondering frequently how anyone could survive this situation. Not only do they have to survive the enormous throngs of flesh-hungry zombies, but the variety of other dangers in this new world as well.I was thrilled to jump back into Xander’s shoes with so many familiar faces from the first book. This second installment is most definitely darker than the first — in the same way that Harry Potter grows more ominous with each book. I’m still going to let my teenage son read it, but the storyline has certainly matured as it has evolved. The pacing of the story is nice, albeit a little slow at certain times with Xander’s inner monologue. The action and gore was so over-the-top intense, though, that it more than made up for any drags. This is not your typical zombie book, simply running for your life from the undead, trying to find places to hide and better weapons. This story is so much more with a strong cast of characters (the good, the bad, the ugly, and the completely badass) and a plot that will keep you on your toes at all times!I definitely recommend this series to all zombie fanatics everywhere!

    Devan Sagliani, returns with the enthralling sequel to the ever so amazing, Zombie Attack: Rise of The Horde and I was hooked!Army of The Dead, had me wishing for more—the story begins where it left off in book one with Xander reaching his brother's camp, surviving a zombie's bite, and asking Felicity to marry him. Then, it fast-forwards to their married life and how much this, “disaster” is affecting their relationship—constantly having to fear the Z's and the results of it is paranoia and a rocky marriage.Of course, the romance is only a minor ingredient, further into the story you'll get the action, the thrill, surprises, and a snippet of – just how did Z-day begun? Whom unleash this virus? Also, I might add, that I might have enjoyed- more, the plot for Army of The Dead, rather than the Rise of the Horde. There's more exciting twists and adventures!Character developments.What's special about this book, is how Xander evolves from the last time we met him. He has more responsibilities and because of the pressure, you see its affects on him. And I was delighted to learn more about his brother, Moto. There are also new characters, like Sonya, whom I am sure you will love—especially those (whom like me) enjoys a strong female-character!The ending was phenomenal! (Cannot say too much, to avoid spoilers, but you Fans NEED to read this book! You won't be disappointed.)A brilliant conclusion to an awesome series. Highly recommend!

    I loved the first book in this series. It was the perfect blend of YA and Horror and Zombies. So when the second book was offered to me by the author for review, I of course said yes! ZA2 had all the same elements I loved about the first book. This book has a more mature feel to it than the first book, but that is to be expected. Hell, Xander is a married man now. I think living in a world filled with zombies would make anyone grow up. It'd also tend to make things just a bit more desperate and dark. Devan did a great job of showing the reader these changes though. We're aren't told Xander is growing up, we are shown it. Yet, the book is still one that can be read by both adults and young adults. Depending on your middle schoolers maturity I would say it'd be safe for even some of them. I highly recommend this series to anyone who wants to read a great zombie book.

    The Zombie Attack! novels are a series of Young Adult novels by Devan Sagliani about the adventures of Xander Macnamarra. a seventeen-year-old martial arts student with a katana, and ex-child star Felicity. The two of them and their companions travel across the ruins of the United States, trying to avoid outlaws and the ever-hungry hordes of the undead scavenging across it. The premise of this book picks up immediately after Curse of the Living. After the capture of Xander MacNamarra, Felicity, and Sonya by an old enemy--they discover there is a secret cabal working to overthrow the government of the United States remnant plus an alliance with the local bandits. Joining forces with Xander's brother, Moto, they try and thwart this plan before the last bastion of civilization in the world is destroyed for good. I very much enjoyed Army of the Dead. It's a story which manages to wrap up Xander and Felicity's story for a second time. I would very much like to see their continuing adventures after this book but can understand why, after the announcement at the end of the book, why this would be difficult. The coup de'tat plotline is one which I could take or leave. While an excellent concept, calling into question how much Xander and his brother should have trusted the United States armed forces (especially when they don't answer to any civilian government), I wasn't really sold on them. We never got a really good confrontation moment between their leader and Xander, so he remained mostly a caricature with a supervillain-esque plot. Despite this, I liked the book had a running theme. The survivors of the zombie apocalypse have all managed to cordon themselves off into little self-sufficient kingdoms. All of them want to reform the United States but the villains have the idea this can only be done through conquest. In truth, it probably only can be because not too many people have much respect lingering for the US of A (which failed to stop the zombies). It's just that creating the USA by conquest is exactly the opposite of the way it should exist (history aside). Doubly so, if it involves unleashing zombies on your neighbors. I liked the expanded role of Sonya and Moto in the book, who form an excellent couple of badasses. I would happily read a book about them, even if they're kind of old for the role of Young Adult heroes. I would love to watch them as actual novel protagonists, though, since they're a post-apocalyptic samurai and bounty hunter. My inner twelve-year-old loves that. The villains in the book are delightfully scummy. While I'm a big fan of moral ambiguity in zombie apocalypse stories, sometimes it's great to just enjoy good guys fighting bad. I love the fates which befall all of our bad guys this time around and they are suitably imaginative. I'm not a big fan of "super zombies", at least outside of Resident Evil but their appearance in this book worked well. I also liked we got some insight into the reasons for the zombie apocalypse. The author could have easily made the creator of the virus a complete monster but he chose to go a more interesting route. I kind of regret we didn't get a chance to see how someone does live with the guilt of destroying the world but, I suppose, "you don't" is a good enough answer as any. One thing I do object to is the decision to move Felicity and Xander's relationship forward even more than it already had been. The pair had been running into problems because they got married to soon in the second book, only now for the next step in a relationship to occur when they resolved that. I would have appreciated if the author had taken the time to let their marriage settle before rushing into things but, hey, these things happen. In conclusion, I found Zombie Attack!: Army of the Dead to be a great end to the Zombie Attack! trilogy and Xander MacNamarra's adventures in particular. It had some flaws but it was pretty enjoyable all the way through.9/10

    When author Devan Sagliani offered me a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, I agreed even though the subject matter really doesn't bite me (pun intended). But just because I'm an orderly person, I started with the first one - Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde - and found it to be quite good, earning 4 stars from me as well.This book continues the adventures of 16-year-old Xander Macnamara, who lives in a country that has been overtaken by all sorts of not-very-nice creatures, from flesh-eating zombies to killer bikers to neo-Nazis and cannibals. Humans like Xander and his half-brother Moto are under siege at every turn, with Moto running a military base that's trying to reestablish some semblance of order. In Horde, Xander was separated from Moto and is trying to find him; here, the two have been reunited, and Moto sends Xander to head up Freedom Town, a civilian colony trying to thrive amid the surrounding chaos. Felicity Jane, a teen-age celebrity Xander met in the first book, is now his bride, and of course she tags along.Things go from bad to worse after a particularly nasty attack, resulting in Xander and Felicity being booted from the colony to be taken back to Moto's base as prisoners. Enter rescuer Sonya, an Amazon-like young woman a few years older than Felicity, who claims to be on their side but somehow isn't very believable and (surprise!) manages to get under Felicity's skin. The real action begins as they make their way back to Moto through all sorts of odd places, from Gold Stake City, inhabited by cowboys and Indians, to a circus.At every turn, their lives are in danger, and the action simply doesn't let up. Somewhere around the halfway point, in fact, I started feeling my age - growing weary of the nonstop run-ins as well as the childish bickering between Felicity and Sonya. Oh, grow up, I thought (that is, until I remembered what our two now-grown kids were like at that age). It was a temporary stall because I couldn't quit in the middle; after all, I had a review to write. Quickly, I yanked off my grandma hat and dived in again, but now intent on reading through the eyes of someone much younger. And by golly, the change in perspective worked; almost immediately, I began to get excited once again. I must also add that, like other books for young adults such as J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and James Patterson's Maximum Ride series - both of which I've read and enjoyed - the quality of writing in both of these books is outstanding. Except for a few dastardly characters for whom it's natural to murder the king's English, I don't recall seeing a single misspelled word or grammatical error, and the story is well thought out. Simply put, that means if you like this genre, it's likely you'll enjoy these books no matter how old you are.Of course, I won't dish on any secrets or how the book ends except to say it's a wild but enjoyable ride. I also like that little life lessons sneak in here and there (dare I say "values"), most often from older brother Moto, like this one: "Always look at your problems head-on if you can. That way you can deal with them on your terms instead of the terms your enemy wants to offer."After reading the first book, I said it would make a great motion picture - and I feel the same about this one. Put a youngish hottie in the role of Xander, in fact, and Sagliani just might have a Twilight success story on his hands. Just please, God, don't let it be Justin Bieber.

    Army of the Dead is a fast-paced novel that incorporates a variety of genres into that of the zombie apocalypse. There is plenty of action, gore for horror, and enough different settings and excitement to make a solid adventure. From beginning to end, readers will be hooked, and it is definitely a killer ride.Everything that I liked about Rise of the Horde only seemed to be amplified in the sequel. There were hardly any slow points, and the pages kept easily turning. The problems continued to lie not only with the zombies, but with the other surviving people. Unlike the majority of zombie novels out there, some of the main antagonists of the story seemed to be a lot worse than the undead - and not just because they have emotions and free will. The contrasts between these nightmares and the acts of heroism really showed the extremes of human reaction to horrific events.This plot had even more twists and reveals than the first - for every one that I could have predicted, another two that I didn't see coming took me by surprise. They will grab readers' attention and not let it go until the very end. I loved the tie-ins to the first book that occurred in the sequel, really wrapping things up and leaving the readers ultimately satisfied. The characters continue to grow and shape, and as they develop, we learn more about them - which is a really cool thing to experience while reading. Perhaps some of the biggest changes of all was Benji, who had to grow up very quickly through the duration of the story and mature greatly from the time in which we first met him. However, just about every character either revealed their true nature or grew as a person. If not, they may have been one of the characters introduced in this story, such as Sonya, whose strength and stubbornness had her quickly become a favorite. Both Xander and Felicity had to adapt to the emotions and situation of their marriage, which was interesting to see in their characters. However, the growth of their relationship seemed to be much more choppy and rushed compared to the more natural pacing of book one - although the jumps in time may have something to do with it.Army of the Dead has just about everything readers could ask to have in a zombie sequel, as well as the things that readers would not think to ask for, but definitely wanted (like the excitement and adventure of a circus trap and a temporary haven that's like a set for a Spaghetti Western. Yeehaw.) The excellent description and clear imagery always allows for the readers to get deeply involved in the story and visualize the action taking place, which was darker and even more wonderfully horrific than before. I thoroughly enjoyed Army of the Dead - a sequel that definitely did not disappoint.

    Having read the truly excellent first book in the Zombie Attack series, Rise of the Horde, I really looked forward to reading Army of the Dead. I was just a little disappointed as this book doesn't contain the level of excellence, character development, and depth as the first book. Army of the Dead starts with a bang, literally. A furious pace of motorbike chases, abductions, vicious fighting and numerous zombie attacks is set right from the start of the book. In fact, there is so much violence in this story that it stopped having the intended shock impact, and only became something I read to try and find a storyline. Brutally murdered children and exploding zombie heads became a sideline and ceased to be horrifying as I read on to see what would happen next to the few characters I actually cared about. Responsibility and marriage seem to have changed Xander. No longer the cute, smart mouthed kid of Rise of the Horde, he is now neurotic, jealous of any man who looks at Felicity Jane, and extremely stubborn. Fortunately he is also very responsible and will sacrifice himself to save others.I absolutely loved the new character, Sonya, who is introduced rather early in the book. A true warrior and excellent handler of animals, she contributes much to aiding Xander and Felicity Jane with several escapes in the chaotic post Z-Day world. However, the fact that Sonya and Felicity Jane couldn’t get along and fought like cats even while they were in mortal peril, really got on my nerves.Despite the few negative points I mentioned, I still think Devan Sagliani created a wonderfully realistic end of the world scenario. A scary world where cannibalistic motorbike gangs and power hungry Hitler wannabes fight for dominance. A place which had become the perfect playground for crazy scientists. Is it a wonder then when some of these elements decide to raise a zombie army or create genetically engineered monsters for personal gain?During the course of this very fast-moving book, we visit an old western town where a community of actors try and survive, as well as Xanadu, a colony of people who strive for harmony and healing. Apart from all the action, suspense and violence, there are some lovely tender moments in the story. For readers who enjoy nonstop action and loads of violence, I recommend Army of the Dead as your ultimate adrenalin fix. (Ellen Fritz)

    ABR's full Army of the Dead (Zombie Attack!, Book 2) audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.After listening to the first book in this series, I found it to be a no brainer to listed to this book 2 in the Zombie Attack! series. While book 1 was pretty good, I am really hoping that Sagliani can grow his story telling from pre-pubescent to at least mid-adolescent.Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed Rise of the Horde. But from there, there is so much room for growth.My hat is off to Devan Sagliani for doing exactly what I wanted him to with this story. I wanted growth and I got it. He was able to create dimension and depth within his previously shallow characters.A couple of things really surprised me here. First that somehow Sagliani was able to create a squeal that is closer to double the length of the first book than it was to the same length. More often than not I find that the second book to a series becomes shorter than the first.Secondly, how the powers that be could have totally managed to split this into two separate stories. As I mentioned it was well long enough to do so. But also the sheer content and volume of the adventure had many suitable stopping points. Kudos for not doing this!Thirdly, Army of the Dead didn't suffer from what I like to call "Book 2 syndrome". This is were the story slows down to a crawl. Only serving to give more back-story to the characters and to setup the awesome book 3 plot lines and villains.Fourthly, this could have been a standalone story very easily. No real need to read or listen to the first book to fully enjoy what is going on. As everything we need to know is explained to us quite nicely.If you liked Rise of the Horde even a little bit. You will love Army of the Dead!Full of huge action scenes. All of the blood and guts and zombie ambushes one would expect. Characters that are more believable than not. That will take you through most of your emotions via zombie filled roller coaster. Plot twists and turns, while no all that surprising, all over. Pure zombie entertainment.Audiobook provided for review by the author.

    I received this book to give an honest review.We leave off right where book one and some time has elapsed. Xander and Felicity are living on the base now. But everyone is not just normal still.There are still zombies but at least they have a break in on the fighting.That is until Xander who bless his heart is a sixteen year old trying to grow up and make grown folk decisions, finds himself married to Felicity and then finds himself captured by the enemy. Which we find out that there is a bounty on Xander's head that wasn't there before.While being captured he meets Sonya who at first I was wondering what her intention were and how she found Xander, but we learn later on who she is and what her intentions are.There is a lot of being captured, escaping, meeting new people, seeing new things that will haunt these characters and plenty of action. Though not so much zombie action more like human vs. human action. We constantly see Xander fighting within himself to keep calm about things and it is a struggle especially when it comes to Felicity. I think Xander has seemed to grow up a bit within this story, he still thinks with his sword rather than his head when he is put into certain situations. The only problem I had with this book is that Xander was constantly getting hit in the head every time he was captured I was starting to wonder if he would ever get brain damage.As we progress within the story we see past groups and gangs coming together but in the worse way. We learn who and why Z-day was made and we even get a bit of advance virus and see what happens when it is put into effect. There is more than just zombies at work, it seems there is always that one person who wants to rule the world and in this book that is no different. As we learn more of what is going on, we also learn more about his brother Moto, which was nice to put more behind him rather than just a name. If you like zombie books then I would say get this book and give it a read.

    'Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead' is the second book in Sagliani's YA horror series and the story only gets darker for Xander and Felicity Jane as their fight for survival within a terrifying apocalyptic landscape continues.I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this brilliant follow up to 'Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde' and I devoured this book greedily, eager to get back to the awesome story and characters. This review contains a mild spoiler for the first book so you should really read that before you check this out!Alright then, the adventure continues with Xander and Felicity Jane understandably experiencing some relationship problems while also dealing with a new threat which has intruded on their safe haven. What comes next is a rollercoaster of nasty shocks and wonderful surprises. I was completely gripped by this story, even more so than with the first amazing book as there are some very emotional moments amidst all of the tense horror sequences. I love how realistically Sagliani deals with his characters; every one of them feels so real and I find this isn't always the case when it comes to teen characters in young adult novels so it was one of the first things that stood out to me about this series. The other things that really stand out are the amazing world building - I could really believe the messed up things some of the people were doing in that kind of end-of-world scenario - and of course the suspenseful horror element which easily kept me on the edge of my seat, at times sick with worry for the main characters and what terrors might befall them. Overall this is a very engaging read, brilliantly written. It is a fantastic continuation of this entertaining young adult horror series. Devan Sagliani has quickly become one of my favourite writers and I would highly recommend his books to fans of horror and zombie fiction. Can't wait for the next book!

    I received a free audio copy of this book for an honest review.Zombies aren’t my favorite story line but I have found that if the characters are good and there are other interesting story lines in a book, that I can put up with the zombies. That was the case in Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead.I didn’t read the first Zombie Attack book, Rise of the Horde, but #2 stands on its own. I hope to find the time to read book #1 in the near future.All of the characters are unique, some are endearing. Xander is amazing when you think about how much he’s accomplished since “Z Day.” He’s now a warrior who has been put in charge of a civilian community. It’s obvious, though, that he’s young. He’s hot tempered and, even though he’s married, he’s insecure in his relationship. Xander’s wife, Felicity Jane, obviously loves him very much and they’re always able to work things out. I liked Sonya from the moment she saved Xander’s life. She’s strong, independent, a great warrior, and yet, obviously, a woman. The people they meet along the way are well described and realistic if you think about what they’ve been through and how people would deal with a world full of zombies.Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead is well written and action packed. There were times, though, that I wished Xander would get over the “what ifs” and just get on with what he needed to do.I recommend Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead for anyone who likes action packed horror novels. I enjoyed it despite the zombies.

    The start was a bit slow but after the few beginning chapters the action picked up again, weaving a tale of conspiracy and deception.We meet up with some new, kind-hearted people, but mostly it’s the old characters coming back to take their revenge.Mr. Sagliani, through Xander’s thoughts, develops the character, unveils his growth and potential as a person.Sonya.Where did she ever come from? We never really know, although we have our suspicions, until the end. We want to love and hate her at the same time, identifying with Felicity Jane’s struggling feelings for this new character.From beginning to almost end of story, Mr. Sagliani paints a grim future; one the reader is sure will come to pass.After the first few chapters, I really wanted to put the book down, but don’t, the story picks up with great action, adventure, danger and the unfolding story Xander was never aware of—sorry can’t spoil your fun.Definitely a worthwhile read, especially if you love Zombie stories. It is a page-turner, edge of the seat read.Looking forward to seeing what else this author comes up with.

    This second book takes off a little while after the first book ends (and you do really have to read the first one to "get" the second one). So I would say, this is not a stand alone book.Again, like the first - lots of action, lots of adventure. This one was just a tiny bit not as exciting for me as the first, but still a very good Zombie read that Zombie lovers will enjoy! "Outside, it was kill or be killed." "He's not going to eat my brother! Not while I'm still alive!" I loved the characters as I continued to get to know them, and some I didn't really care for in the beginning I ended up liking much better in this book. I loved how the author developed all the gangs and cults, that's how I would have imagined it would be like if this were to really happen. Listen to me! LOL as if this would really happen! That's what I get for reading two Zombie books back to back, it starts to destroy your sense of what reality is!Still a clean read, but graphic, so OK for teens.Thanks again to Devan for sending me this e-book for my honest review!

    Zombie Attack 3This is the third book in this series and it has been the best one yet. I love the never stopping action and the great characters. Of course my favorites are Moto and Zander who also happen to be the main characters. If you like this genre then this series should definitely be one to read. You will not be story. I'm not and I can't wait until the next one.

    Loved these books by Devan Sagliani, fast paced action would not hesitate to recommend his books.
