You know, when I had originally started Feed, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. The characters were pretty easy to like, but there was too much pop culture referencing that felt forced in. That is not a problem with Deadline. It hits the ground running and doesn’t stop – hell, it opens with a scientist that fakes her own death and the firebombing of a city (I would warn about spoilers, but that’s in the first couple chapters. That’s just the SET UP of this book). It also doesn’t stop – I haven’t spent that much time tense during a novel in a while, and when I finished it I immediately found myself wishing that Blackout was out, just so I could finish the trilogy (and not have to wait until June for it).
Let me be straightforward. If you like zombies, you will probably like this series. If you like conspiracies that just keep going further down the rabbit hole, you’ll probably like this. If you liked World War Z, you probably should have read this by now. So go check it out. You won’t regret it.
