Christopher and Kim have done it again with Safe Haven- Neverland (Part 1). I keep waiting to be disappointed in the series but it just hasn't happened yet. This book was a tad different in regards to the action came later. If you haven't tried one of Christopher's zombies series and you're a zombie fan, you absolutely should be doing it ASAP. I'm waiting for his world to be developed into a TV show or movie. Full review below...
Where to purchase:
Safe Haven- Neverland (Part 1) Book 7 of The Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Horror Series by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is another good one for the series. This one has a little bit of family, hopes, and battles. And zombies of course. If you are following the series, you definitely need to listen to this one as it’s still great this far in! If you are new to Christopher’s books, make sure you start from the beginning or you’re missing out. You get invested in the characters- it’s impossible not to. It’s easy to listen to the books in one sitting. 4 ½ stars for story, 5 stars narration.
What’s it about? Part of the group is stuck and surrounded by zombies as a new threat emerges, while the other part of the group is fighting their own battles. We get a good amount of Mike in this book (his memories, he gets his hopes up, etc.), but a variety of the others as well. There are some defining moments. Without giving too much away, the group gears up for what I’m guessing will be an epic battle in the next book. Love the banter between Mike and Jules. Love the characters and their development. My only dislike was the action occurs a little later than normal, but it’s a good build up. There’s a bonus preview at the end of Christopher’s new post-apocalyptic series The Burning Tree with Kim narrating (wow Kim, great singing!).
The narrator, Kim Bretton, is brilliant. Love the accents and characters. Kim’s narration adds to the story.
Parental guidance/trigger warnings: death (killing, one suicide), memories of father’s abuse, and other post-apocalyptic type situations (no food). Language used: Fx68, Sx40.
