Dust of the Dead by John Palisano


Mike Lane went to LA to become an actor. But, the walking dead got in the way of that happening. With a failed acting career and a failed marriage, Mike joins the Reclamation Crew – they find the loose zombies and put them down. Since the zombie apocalypse has lasted ten years, the last few are very decayed and full of dust. This dust has been making Mike’s crew sick, but Mike isn’t affected. He is determined to find out why and what can be done.

This book is a fun read, but that is about it.  The characters are entertaining and the plot, while about the ever popular zombie apocalypse, was not stale or boring. There are enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and entertained. The view point through Mike, and every day average guy, is refreshing.

While I wasn’t wowed by this book, I did like the plot and the writing a lot. If you enjoy zombie or horror stories, I think you will enjoy it a lot more than I did.
