15802948Yeah, this is where my love of Fanboys vs Zombies end.  The first one was hilarious and a such an easy and fun read.

This one, not so much.

We come back to half the crew about three months after the disastrous events of San Diego Comic Con.  We don’t know what happened to two of the characters, they have a random new token black guy for no apparent reason, half of the action involving the zombies doesn’t make any sense, and at the end we realize there is a ghost running around with one of the crew that one one else can see or hear.

It was fun, it had many of those ‘omg i can totally see that happening’ moments, but that’s about where it ends.  The story wasn’t engaging or interesting, and it left with with no desire to see how the series continues.

I’m sure many people love this series and will continue to enjoy it.  But my journey ends here, and I am so glad I didn’t actually spend any money on this series.

But onward and upwards to new and wondrous adventures my friends!  Next up, Hunted by Kevin Hearne.

16071748For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt—Artemis and Diana—for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is . . . run like hell.
 
Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok—AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living—and still have a world to live in.
