Summary (from Goodreads):
“Rebekah vows to expose the truth behind the RecruitZ that are killing the innocents. These creatures must be stopped, but so should the people controlling them. When Rebekah uncovers who is behind the uprisings, her own life becomes in danger.“
I was so excited to get this book, because RecruitZ was pretty much my favorite series debut in a long time. You know how sometimes a book that you look forward to can be a letdown because it can’t possibly live up to the hype? That was not at all the case here.
As tends to be the case in middle books in a series, there is some new information learned here. The unique thing, though, is that everything that happens in this book is both unexpected but also, when considered in the context of the first book, completely obvious. Like, of COURSE this would turn out to be true. It has to be an incredibly hard line to walk, but Karice Bolton makes it look easy.
What I love most about this series is the fact that, while it’s about what happens after a zombie apocalypse, the zombies are almost an afterthought. Society is well along the path to rebuilding itself and the villains tend to be entirely human (as opposed to the formerly human, current zombies).
One of the things that fascinate me the most in books like these (about potentially world-ending events) is how people react to it. You see a lot of extremes and people tend to be either much better or much worse than you may have reasonably expected them to be. That’s definitely the case here.
I love this series and I cannot wait to read the third installment (which would be true even without the insane developments in AlibiZ).
