At the same time, Frankie, a heroin user and prostitute who is trying to hide from a vengeful pimp, narrowly escapes disaster in the Baltimore Zoo begins a trek out of the cities and into the country.

And then the book ends. After his enlistment ended, Keene worked a variety of jobs before becoming a full-time writer. There is far more than just human zombies in this story, it’s all animals all shapes and sizes, and I assure you. Supposedly the zombies are angry and evil and have overrun the world and are living on human flesh which is in short supply.

How many times have we seen this story line? They are rotting, walking, running, sprinting, gun toting, bomb making, destructive, murderous,and not to forget rather smart. And, as the story progressed, the author repeatedly intervened to save characters deemed important. Meanwhile, a scientist named Baker, who was working on the particle accelerator, is trapped within the confines of his underground workspace.

Who Will Like This Book: In andKeene spearheaded a Books For Troops program, in which various horror authors supplied free, signed books to American troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world.

Quotes from The Rising. There are too many things wrong with this book. It was a kenee, cheap ending. I like my zombies slow, dumb, and numerous. See 2 questions about The Rising….

I do plan on reading the sequel, City of the Dead, but I’m going to do just that-read it, instead of listening, because the narration of this one did diminish my enjoyment a little bit. Worse, they set cunning traps for the unwary. I now know that this was not Keene’s fault, and he is in fact a grammatically A-Okay writer.

I love the main character’s drive to find his son among all the destruction while banding together with an ex hooker and a preacher man The Origin of Hordak”. Now, everything with a brain gets reanimated upon death AND retains some of its own knowledge.

This looks like it was his first bookso possibly one of his later books will be better. In fact, knowing what to expect out of this book helped me enjoy it a heck of a lot more.


Well, most of a check. Under the weight of hordes of the undead, civilization folds in on itself and the survivors are left to fend for themselves. This book has a good deal of violence and gore to appease the darker natured reader.

The Rising

I can tell that Keene is a fan of Stephen King as there is a line straight out of The Shining and a lot of mention of other worlds. For a start, the zombies have a good level of intelligence. The Rising First edition cover. With such glaring spelling and gramatical errors as: If each zombie simply kills one living creature each day, the number of zombies will quickly reach uncontrollable levels.

I really felt something for a few of these characters too.
