Once a zombie, always a zombie?
Dave and Sarah are pretty happy in the Middle-of-Nowhere, Montana. They’ve done their part in saving the world (kind of) and now they’re settling in for a long life of killing straggler zombies. Well, they think that’s what they’re doing until a helicopter lands on their front lawn with old friends Nicole Nessing and Robbie “The Kid” on board. They propose a dangerous plan: Dave and Sarah must return to Seattle and use Dave’s Superpowers to help with the final stages of a formula that will not only wipe out most of the zombies, but innocluate humans against the virus.
Going back to Seattle was never in the plan. Especially since Sarah has a few secrets of her own that could change her marriage, increase the danger they’re facing and even alter the future they’re so desperately trying to save. (Source: Goodreads)
How about the ending to Eat Slay Love? The Wall. Family. Resistance. And Sarah going all Commando-Bad-Assy. I was so glad that they got some rest up in Montana. And if I could go back and tell them not to get on the helicopter I would. STAY! DON’T GO! But they both have that HOPE and SAVE HUMAN-kind thing going for them, so why stop now? I was totally amazed at how at-ease David fell into being a test subject. *scratches head*
This review is going to be hard, because at every turn there is a SPOILER. We spend a lot of time in Sarah’s head in Zombie Whisperer. She is dealing with a lot. She is trying to come to terms with strong protective feelings about her family, but isn’t willing to let go her need for a little adrenaline rush. Plus David is pushing CAVEMAN levels of protectiveness over Sarah. She isn’t sure if she is comforted or appalled by his behavior. I could sympathize with her. I think most women can. It is a hard balance giving yourself over to something bigger, but make sure YOU don’t get lost in the process. And in her case, EVERYTHING she has known is at a tipping point and could come crashing down on her and those she loves.
This final book in the series was EPIC. Jesse gave us everything we’ve come to expect. SNARK. ACTION. And lots and lots of Zombies. Plus she upped the emotional ante. I CRIED. Tears totally fell from my eyes. Heart-wrenching things happen. She had me in full page-flipping mode and in the end I hated that it was over.
This series has everything you need to cure what ails you. Lots of Laughter, Love, and Killing Bad Things.
