Review: Max Brooks' The Extinction Parade, Volume 1

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I got this eARC free from NetGalley.

Oh yes, I wanted to love this. I saw Max Brooks at a signing last year, and he had these little promo cards with The Extinction Parade cover art on them, which he signed. He told us the concept behind the story, a rather unique take on the zombie apocalypse. Wow, I was psyched and ready to dive in!

I was a little let down. I mean, the art is fantastic, and I still love the concept. Plus, the vampires don't suck. Well, I mean they do, but no more than they're supposed to.

Lots of buildup. Lots of ambiance and mood setting. So, I'm ready to see some kick ass stuff, and then it ends. I guess we'll have to wait until Volume 2 to see where this is going, eh?

That's cool. I'll check it out. I'm intrigued.
