Summary

It’s been two years since the world ended. Two years since the dead rose and the plague of ex-humanity decimated mankind. For most of that time, the superhero called St. George, formerly known to the world as the Mighty Dragon, has protected the people of Los Angeles at their film-studio-turned-fortress, The Mount. Together with his fellow heroes - Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth - he’s tried to give the survivors hope and something like a real life. But the swollen population of The Mount is becoming harder and harder to sustain, and the heroes are feeling the pressure.
Hope arrives in the form of a United States Army battalion, based in a complex a few hundred miles away in Arizona. This is not just any base, however. The men and women of Project Krypton are super-soldiers, designed and created before the outbreak to be better, stronger, and faster than normal humans. They want the heroes and all the people of The Mount to rejoin America and have normal lives again.
But can the military be trusted? And is there even a country left to rejoin? There is a secret at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it have an awesome power that will help them keep that secret hidden. The power of Freedom.

Critic reviews

"Anyone who says there's nothing new in the world of zombie fiction hasn't read Peter Clines. Ex-Patriots is even better than its predecessor. This is a series that's going places." (Mira Grant, author of Feed and Deadline)

Quite nice

In my opinion the story isn't as interesting as in the prequel (Ex-Heroes). The recipe is the pretty much same, though a new element of power is introduced. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one too. The mix of superheroes, zombies and the third element works very well, at least if you like me enjoy these things in general.

Once again the narrators are doing a great job.



At the end there's a standalone short story by the author which I really enjoyed. The take on zombies was quite interesting.

Better Than The First!!!

Very good continuation... Better than the first book... narration was great I actually enjoyed the multiple narrators... Can not wait to start the next book... If you like zombies and you like Heroes this is definitely the series you need to read...I am a fan of Peter Clines

Barry was right

At one point, Barry says something in this story about the military being evil in any zombie Apocalypse story and he was right. Going into this story, I didn't know what to expect because I felt like it could have ended with first story. But their involvement with the military/ government added an extra dimension to a very complex idea. First it was zombies v. superheros. Now on top of that we have a corrupt "government" and genetically enhanced soldiers to contend with. I'm not going to ruin the ending, but I was definitely caught off guard. Also, the characters are very well written with interesting backstories. It was exciting, surprising, funny, complex.... I could go on, and on about how awesome this series is.
