Dead Meat Day 8 by Nick Clausen | Book Review
Civilization has collapsed. Allies turn against one another in a last-ditch attempt to save themselves. The zombie apocalypse has very nearly wiped out all of humanity. But there are still a few who hold onto one last thin thread of hope. And they are willing to risk their lives to try and save the world.
Dead Meat Day 8 brings the plot back to the origin of the zombie apocalypse as Dan searches for a cure. Readers will finally have confirmation if all their guessing and theories are in fact true. Alliances will be formed and a final desperate battle will begin. Characters readers have met throughout the series will begin to make appearances, wrapping up their arcs as the series nears the end.
The focus of Dead Meat Day 8 shifts away from relying on action and combat situations. While zombies and antagonistic humans are still present threats, a new type of horror makes its way into Nick Clausen's writing. A psychological aspect comes into play as characters experience the burnout associated with trying to survive.
But this book is no less entertaining than the previous novels. There are still twists and turns readers won’t see until the scenes are played out on the page. And Nick Clausen is able to spin the constant background threats in different ways to keep readers enthralled. He will also introduce a new threat, seamlessly weaving it into the storyline to raise the stakes one last time. I am excited to see where this series will end and who will be left standing.
