[KINDLE] Deadland Rising
P 52At the beginning of my other two reviews for this series I felt the need to explain to my readers that I am generally not a fan of the horror genre I don t like horror I deplore zombies
AND I DON T HANDLE SUSPENSEI don t handle suspense Well folks I m not even going t Being a Midwest girl Rachel Aukes s Deadland Saga sucked me in and spoke
To Me Because I Know The Cities And Landscapes Sheme because I now the cities and landscapes She an amazing talent for turning innocuous everyday places like big box retail stores into terrifying zed zones I loved the adaptive reuse of the Perkins flag as a symbol of New Eden The camp meal prepared on the altar table of an abandoned church is a pure literary gem of imagery The description of bombed out bungalow neighborhoods in Des Moines struck a chord too And if you have ever been caught in a bad snowstorm on a rural Iowa interstate compounded by no plows and no road salt you Dialogue: Relationships in Graphic Design know why Clutch Crew were hustling to get to home base Compared to Books 1 and 2 in the series Book 3 was not so focused on the zombies but the impact of the devastation of civilization on places and people In true honor to the title Aukeseeps hope alive throughout Deadland Rising And then she dashes it and then hope rises a little and then she dashes it The action is non stop and I couldn t put this book down until I finished it at 1 am There is a lot to be wary of in the new world zeds bandits feral animals illness decreased resources and power hungry politicians You feel the exhaustion seeping out of the main charactersThe romantic sucker in me really wanted Cash and Clutch and their extended family of tag alongs to have a happy ending But in typical horror fashion Aukes isn t inclined to give everyone the HEA I m of a romance reader and never met a horror film where I didn t cover my eyes so there has to be a hint of a happy ending for me to crack a dystopian genre book The tender scenes between Cash and Clutch are sparse because who really has time for romance when you are fighting for your life and have no privacy I hate books where the romantic leads somehow find time to canoodle in the midst of danger and that becomes a pivotal plot point Contrastingly the very talented Aukes manages to eep Cash and Clutch the passionate center of the story through little looks and touches and displays of private devotion She accelerates the romantic tension by raising the uestion as to whether hard man Clutch will relent to any future with Cash There is a sense of doom surrounding Clutch that is tangible throughout the trilogyDeadland Rising is well written highly descriptive tug at your heartstrings emotional and thrillingly climactic I think I am going to have to read it again
So I Can AppreciateI can appreciate subtlety of story now that the race to the ending is complete It seems the author introduces new characters for no other reason than to die a horrible death I like zombie post apocalypse fiction and for what it is this series isn t bad But it s not one of the better series eithe. Endure in this barren hostile world Even that might not be enough Deadland Rising is a journey through Dante Alighieri's “Paradiso” the classic tale on the seven virtues zombie apocalypse styleBook 1 100 Days in DeadlandBook 2 Deadland’s HarvestBook 3 Deadland Risin. .
So bloody good I m so distraught to have finished "this trilogy I loved it and I can t believe my days with Cash and Clutch are over Zombies and "trilogy I loved it and I can t believe my days with Cash and Clutch are over Zombies and of the world fiction are not really my thing but this series grabbed me and I can t rate this saga highly enough Love love loved it Okay so here s the deal I promised to have this book read and reviewed two weeks ago Which if we want to get technicalI did But being that Deadland Rising is the final chapter in Aukes Deadland Saga I absolutely had to reread it before I could give my final thoughts Honestly I m still not sure how to convey how I feel about the
book in mere wordsSo here s the gist of it Campin mere wordsSo here s the gist of it Camp is finito and the group heads for New Eden Of course along the way they re hit with a bunch of roadblocks and I don t mean just traffic jams By the time they arrived even though it didn t take up too much time in the book I felt as if it was a complete tale that could successfully stand alone as a novella But Aukes trudged on determined to get out every last drop of story to her readers Then we re given a treat and hopes of a cure surface Without giving away too much detail by the time the group leaves the church I felt as if that hump of the story could have also stood alone as a successful novellabut wait there s Aukes ept going bringing us to the capitol and introducing a benevolent dictator with wildly misguided intentions Here I found myself yelling at the characters don t you Modeling and Analysis of Communicating Systems know never to take candy from strangers Okay so they didn t take any candy but still they had uite the duh moment and it bit them in the arse That s all I ll share about the plot even though there s much in between and after Some things you just have to experience for yourselvesBefore I get down to the best bits I want to share the one niggling thing that I can t totally get on board with The story relays that the virus is even virulent outside the host and infection rates increase Now Inow that a miniscule number viruses can live outside the host on nonporous fomites
for up to a week however after twenty four hours it s ability to spread degrades much like a medication sup to a week however after twenty four hours it s ability to spread degrades much like a medication s life So not that I couldn t get past the scientific liberties because after all this is a work of fiction I just found it pulled me out of the story whenever it came up because my clinical brain uestioned it every time No harm no foul thoughand it s such a minor gripe that it had no bearing on my rating of the book I just happen to be neurotic and let s be honest I m no microbiologist so there s always the chance that I m misinformedNowon to what I really enjoyed about the book I ve been dying to see how Aukes dealt with the two creepy Inventing the Medium: Principles of Interaction Design as a Cultural Practice kids and was elated to find not only them but another tertiary character similarly afflicted become their own little arc within the book In fact I d love to see a short story about theids that goes further in depth with the hows and whys or maybe even gives a glimpse into their Z addled br. The conclusion of the critically acclaimed DEADLAND SAGAWinter has arrived It has been nearly one year since the zombie hordes claimed the world As the plague eats away at its victims’ bodies the Fox survivors search for a safe place to rebuild what they have lost But
Rachel Aukes Í 2 ReviewAinsI m happy Aukes didn t go heavy on the lovey dovey stuff with Cash and Clutch It would have detracted from the tone set in the previous books and I think she gave readers enough of a hint without making it gag cityI m totally a dog person but let me be the first to say I definitely do not want to hug any of the dogs in the Deadland Sagawell maybe Diesel but not the others the feral sickly strays It stands to reason that domesticated animals would go feral if left to their own defenses and that most of the small dogs would go the way of the dodo while large mongrels flourish So it s believable yet disturbing nonethelessAll said and done Aukes writes good fiction no ifs ands or buts about it A true testament to her talent is that a year can pass and I ll still remember the finer details of her stories That ladies and gentleman is nothing short of spectacular Even though I received this book in return for an honest review I purchased a copy because it was just that good and deserved it It s been a long long time since I finished the Deadland Saga book 2 by Rachel Aukes still I easily slipped back into this rotting world where the people are as much to fear as the living dead Deadland Rising is a fine read to close out the series eually as good as the previous two books I often find that trilogies run out of steam and feature a little too much padding This is certainly not the case here This is my favourite zombie series without a doubt Despite the long pause between book 2 and 3 I m sad that I have come to the end I could easily hook up with Cash Clutch and the crew again And so55 shambling corpses from the Grim Reader SummaryWith winter fast approaching Cash and the Camp Fox group take a hit that ills many of their survivors When they join forces with another group Cash Clutch and Jase soon find out that there are still many dangers out there despite the lack of Zeds over the winter Also Benji s story from the beginning of the outbreak is shared at the end Personal Opinion I was very curious how this saga was going to end It did include the same amount of action Of course there was a lack of zombies as winter *arrives and freezes the remaining ones wandering around Instead this book focuses on the dangers of other survivors *and freezes the remaining ones wandering around Instead this book focuses on the dangers of other survivors remaining animals which at times seemed even worse than the zeds The ending was wrapped up nicely and I d definitely recommend
this saga to any zombie lovers I loved this series and this book was the perfect finishing touch Isaga to any zombie lovers I loved this series and this book was the perfect finishing touch I t sure how Ms Aukes was going to end the series but she perfectly tied up all the lose ends and left the reader with hope I look forward to reading other things she has written Wonderful conclusion to the series Lovely writing Great heroine Full review and available at My ThoughtsBelieve me if I could change the past there d be plenty I would do differently But I can t and you can t either We have to accept things as we see them and eep on living Clutch Deadland Rising. Dangerous new threat has risen hunting them from every direction To survive Cash Clutch and their small band of refugees must put their faith in a group of strangers and a new government with radical plans It will take all of the Fox survivors’ strength and courage to.
