With the US military and violent militias targeting everyone trying to find a cure for the Zombie Plague, survivors are fleeing to China seeking refuge in Mark Chen’s bunker. An unlikely ally is found in Dr. Cheng Wu, AKA Wei Chen, Mark’s cousin. The wife of the main militia leader, distraught after he shot their daughter who became infected, is now seeking help for her son who has also become infected.
The tension created in the previous books continues as the survivors race against the clock and deadly enemies to find a cure to a disease that threatens the globe. While the story is still fascinating, the execution of Mutation Z: Desperate Measures by Marilyn Peake doesn’t live up to the preceding books. A bit choppy in places, it almost seems that the author, seeing the end coming, is rushing to finish it. I still enjoyed it, just not quite as much as the earlier books.
I’ll have to give this one a mere three and a half stars. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.
