The book starts off in a familiar setting with Lamar hiding out in his barricaded house, but then moves to the ship at sea, which I thought was neat change. The zombie nerd in me always thought that a ship would be a safe place to hang out if the and when the zombies showed up. Though this proves not to be such a great idea in Keene’s version of a zombie apocalypse. The idea of the plague jumping species was a fun twist with zombie dogs and horses wandering about. But the best are the Zombie whales swimming around the ocean! Yes you heard me correctly there are zombie whales!
Bottom line if you dig zombie fiction and haven’t read Dead Sea you are really missing out. This is hands down one of the best pieces of zombie fiction that you will ever read. Brian Keene is the man. I highly recommend this one.
