A Change-Of-Pace Zombie Series
5 out of 5 stars
There is something about this series that just cracks me up. It’s also just slightly different than any other zombie series I’ve ever read. From the “things” that leave behind to the way that the main characters talk about different things. It’s just a great change of pace.
Book two finds the teams building up their almost-island fortress in attempts to try and stay safe and sound from the zombies. It’s focused on some raiding, some building, and a lot on the people that were left.
There is scavaging, house runs, and the occasional zombie pooping all over the place and ruining a good day. Mo is Mo and Smokes is himself – funny as ever. Making Zombie Island another unforgettable but really needed change-of-pace book in the zombie/post-apocalyptic genre.
Honestly, this book wouldn’t have been as good without the great narration of S.W. Salzman. The way that he voices the different characters (especially Smokes and Mo) absolutely make this book. Without his narration (and the specific voices he gives to these characters) it wouldn’t have been as enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a change-of-pace funny zombie book – check this series out. It’s funny, full of enjoyable scenes, and definitely a book I won’t forget.

Being the hero of a zombie apocalypse ain’t easy. People expect you to defeat lunatics, save survivors, and recover treasure when you would rather just make time with your girl. Mo Collins can’t avoid his scripted destiny; his personal oracle, Smokes, won’t let him. He can still bitch about it, though.
The crew of the replica pirate ship, the Viva Ancora, is growing, and the characters of this cast are fulfilling their roles toward destiny. As the group swells, the need to clear the town of the infected and secure Guntersville Island becomes paramount. Isolation from the world will protect them from the naked, blue, undead cannibals - or will it?
Something’s not right with these “zombies”; the script is verging into the unwritten. The more contact the team has with their predatory enemies, the less certain they are of their actions. Are they wiping out a plague...or murdering a new order?
Follow Mo and his crew as they try to skew fate and carve out their own society on an Alabama lake where the fish bite, the Zombies bite...and sometimes life bites. Welcome ashore, friend, to Zombie Island!
