Blue Moon: 09/10/14
Blue Moon by James Ponti is the follow up to Dead City. At the moment it appears to be the conclusion of the story arc, but there's still enough side stories there should Ponti ever decide to write a third. If he were to, I'd definitely read it.
Someone is killing the zombies by leaving them chained on the subway lines that leave Manhattan. Molly and the Omegas are brought on to figure out who is doing it and why. They are up against a ticking countdown with the approach of the next zombie check in.
As with the first book, there are a number of riddles that Molly and friends must solve before they are given access to the information they need to do their investigation. These riddles are somewhere between the clues of the original 39 Clues series and the riddles of Merganzer D. Whippet in the Floors series.
There's less in the way of zombie mayhem and fighting as it's been established that most zombies aren't violent or brain thirsty. So for those wanting a more typical zombie book, I recommend Undead by Kirsty McKay or Flu by Wayne Simmons. But if you like a well thought out world where zombies exist side by side with humans and aren't an immediate apocalyptic event, then Dead City and Blue Moon are for you.
