Sheol - a Review
Gehenna. Tartarus. Sheol. The moaners, or zombies, made their unexpected appearance in the Old West town of Gehenna and chased the survivors all the way to the Tartarus River. The few who survived that made it to the town of Sheol. Just in case you donít know the meanings of those three words, they each are a different name for the place known as hell, a place of eternal torment and suffering.
At the end of the second book, Karen had managed to make it to the outskirts of Sheol with the little boy, Stephen. The crooked sheriff promptly threw her in jail for kidnapping and murder, and all she had to look forward to was being hung. McCall was left back by a house in the desert facing death from the approaching moaners. I almost threw my Kindle at the end of that one, but Iím glad I didnít.
Sheol was well worth the wait. With a horde of zombies trying to eat them at every turn, Karen and McCall each show what they are made of. Her past as a prostitute and his as an outlaw does not define the kind of people they truly are.
Their own lives are on the line, but they warn the citizens of Sheol what is headed toward them and attempt to teach these unbelievers how to fight the monsters coming their way. That proves to be a challenge Ė their town has been under the rule of a crooked sheriff and an even more crooked judge, both of whom know the zombies are on their way and only want to watch the destruction of Sheol and its citizens.
Jason Brant has done an amazing job with the final installment in this series. The action never quits, and there is never a dull moment. But if you have an exceptionally weak stomach, you need to realize that this is a zombie book. There will be plenty of blood spilled with people ripped to pieces and consumed while still breathing and screaming. If you canít handle that, you may not want to read this book. If that isnít a problem for you, then you will love this book, as well as the first two in the series.
For those of you who like to pick up on things that not everyone will notice, keep your eyes open. Does the Bible talk about zombies? Are they actually mentioned in the Bible? The answer may surprise you. Also look for each of the seven deadly sins to be represented here. And there are other things that I canít mention, or Iím liable to give away more about the book than I intend. I will say that the ending is satisfying and didn't make me want to throw anything.
A copy of this book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review. If you would like a copy of this book to add to your own library, I have provided an Amazon link below. The second link will get you all three of the books in this series.
