The Deadlocked series continues as Billy heads into the city in search of his mother. During his quest, he will meet a strident military figure that will alter his journey and two brothers that will become his closest allies. However, his trip will endanger the family he has only just met, and he might not be able to save them.MY REVIEW:
Billy's journey into the city will reveal many of the secrets of this penultimate novella. No characters are safe from the terror that has engulfed the city, and as the motives of those in charge begin to be revealed, the fate of all mankind will be in question.
This third installment picks up with Billy, who you'll remember from book 2. He goes in search of his Mom who is trapped inside the city. Upon his search of his mom he makes some unlikely friends. As in the other books in this series, and most zombie books, it's so much more than just about a bunch of walking dead trying to eat you. It's about survival, and yeah, sometimes survival of the fittest. It's about what it means to be human, what it means to protect the ones you love and the lengths people go to when they are desperate. Everyone's trying to survive. Meanwhile the military is carrying out duties passed down to them from higher up decision makers and taking it on faith that they are the "good guys". Who really knows the truth of the matter.
This has so far been my least favorite of the 3 Deadlocked books. However, it was still a good read and definitely fills in some gaps of things that happened in book 2. If you want a great heart-pounding zombie horror book this series is definitely for you!
Final Rating - 3.5 stars
