Dead Veil by Ian Woodhead

This is the fourth instalment in the Zombie Armageddon series, and eagerly awaited by myself! This time around the action is set a year on from the initial outbreak and centres on a dictatorship based at a tower block and delusional characters holed up in the supermarket.

I loved this. Ian never fails to amaze me with his imagination and detail. I have been waiting a while for this one and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The action as usual was fast paced and relentless. The zombies have evolved and are now almost super-'human' with somewhat vampiric qualities. Being able to read minds and heal themselves, the Hunters are top of the 'deadie' food chain! The gore was top notch and the characters were familiar and solid. This is a series that just keeps getting better and better. I do recommend that the others in the series are read first, if only to familiarise yourself with the characters and areas, although this isn't strictly necessary.
