Unfed: 10/04/14

cover artUnfed by Kirsty McKay is the sequel to Undead. Bobby awakes in a hospital and is given a load of bull about what has happened to her cohorts and with the zombie plague. More troubling, is that her mother is apparently dead.

These books work for their remote, unknown (to the protagonist) locations. Before it was a restaurant and a tower. Now it's a hospital — one like she's never seen. To spice things up, the zombies have gotten smarter; this batch can figure out basic puzzles (including closed doors).

The big mystery here isn't what's causing the zombie outbreak — that we know. Now the question is, where's Smitty and what really happened to Bobby's mother. Thus this one is more of a treasure hunt with zombies.

As with the first one, the ending is rather open-ended. As of writing this review, I don't see any mention that a third is planned. As it stands now, the series closes on note similar to that of the ending of the original Italian Job, except that instead of gold threatening to dump our heroes off the Alps to their untimely deaths, it's zombies.

Were a third one published (maybe Un-Zed... haha), I would certainly read it. Were McKay to publish a completely unrelated book, I'd read that too. She has a way with mixing humor and the macabre.
