So it is not Halloween any more, but when I spotted this one over at Netgalley I just had to try it out. Scouts + zombies + mystery? Um, yes, where do I sign up for this!
This one is apparently a bundling of 4 volumes. Each part has a separate cover, a bit of information about the series, and also some sketches for the characters and how the characters got to be were they are now.
After reading it, well, I have to say I am filled with many many questions. However, I do have to say, that I don’t mind them that much. The story builds up, you start with mystery, scouts, and then zombies. Then some more zombies, you find out some stuff as we get along. However, I do feel that the ending was a bit rushed. So, they suddenly find our mysterious guy, then boom, then people get called and done. I feel like this part could have done with a bit more spreading out. Now it felt disjointed and weird.
The whole scout stuff was really fun, it gave the kids some advantage as they knew how to work the land, and also how to work with tools. Plus it was a bit funny to see how the guys had to be saved by 2 girls. 😛 Sorry, just think it is always funny. Guys are always acting tough, but then they do something stupid and end up having to be saved. 😛
I don’t really get how anyone would want to live at this place. Sorry, but apparently people have been going missing for quite some time, yet people just continue living there? Whut? I would move as fast as I could if this was the case.
I also wonder how the zombies work, apparently a bite is not deadly? So what do you have to do to turn into a zombie? Magic? Something else?
I will definitely check out the next volume, hopefully more information is given in that one.
The art was so-so. At times it looked pretty decent, but sometimes it was just not that pretty.
But all in all, I did enjoy this volume. Kick-ass scouts, mystery, and zombies (glow in the dark even).
