I enjoyed this series, TW decided to keep it to 12 books which is a shame as it felt like there was a lot more these storylines could have given us. He doesn’t shy away from the horror of what could happen doesn’t go too far into realms you don’t want to wander into (like the Zombie Fallout series by Tufo) and he wasn't afraid to kill people off when their time was done.
I'm enjoying the children storyline, different and original. Although a real consitant sexist streak is settling in (which lost it a star) which is odd as there are stronger female characters 'doing' the action in the story but it seems like all the men think in a very sexist way, I guess the author thinks this is what would happen if there was a zombie apoclpse and maybe it would but as a woman it gets a bit boring hearing this over and over from every male character, that said there is interesting variety in how women are written which makes it all the more disappointing.
FYI typical bad British accents, so nothing new!
I enjoyed the spinoffs too, the 'Dead snapshots' are great, I like the attention to detail (the English one was pretty much on point re: lingo and culture) and I'm enjoying the new Dead series.
What would have made Dead: Reclamation better?
This book seems to have jumped a massive time gap from the last one making some old characters bit parts and new ones bit boring if truth be told.
Has Dead: Reclamation put you off other books in this genre?
Yes this book really put me off any further DEAD books if they come out
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The book it written well but for a dead book it is short but until near the end it was ok.
Any additional comments?
Ok it seems like the series has ran out of ideas, the book is very short compared with previous ones but the bigger problem it was just boring as time had gone along and we had to re-engage with characters years on and this really did not work for me..... The biggest problem is that weak characters now take centre stage so it is a bit 'wet' and boring really until you get to geeks which i love but at the end of the book something happens here to wipe out the last real big character in the dead series, this author is great at doing that and even though i normally hate it, i do get why he does it but to be honest normally a strong character comes in to replace but thinking of this book and maybe last 2 i really only buy to hear the geeks adventures mainly with the other bits filling time and now i say thanks for an amazing series but you really needed the KD in the series to keep it alive and for me it is now dead. If 11 comes out i am sorry it will not be in my cart but thanks for a great ride til this book.
From almost great story to complete bomb
This story was bring back the series to its glory it was becoming a great book until and hour before the end.. The author absolutely bombed this book. Kevin's crew was the best story of the series. The Geeks and the Author completely destroyed the book and ruined the whole series for me.. First he destroyed the relationships and even when you accepted that. He brought you to a point where you were holding your breath for a great rescue but failed the readers.. And nuked not just the book but the series.. Sad thing I bought book 11 and have no desire at all to read it.. No longer a fan of the Author.. Flat out horrible.. And the Juan story with Mckenzie made no sense at all. Keeping a soon to be zombie dog next to your kids when it's about to die and turn and not binding it's mouth made no sense.. The Author ran out of things to write and instead of ending in great glory he bombed it.. Flat waste of 8 books for me. Time I can not get back. Erin a leader and bad villain.... Come on!!! That tops the cake of the nonsense.

I am so sad that Kevin died I don't know if I want to read this series any more now that Kevin is gone and Steve's dead they were my favorite. Billy is stuck at the camp so his story is boring now. Tala story is kinda OK but I just miss the original leaders .
