After Monsterland has imploded, the entire world is thrown into chaos. World leadership is gone, economies have collapsed, and communications are non-existent. Wyatt must go beyond the boundaries of his small town to reestablish contact with the outside world, and alert the government about a traitor-in-chief.
During his journey he discovers a new threat released from the bowels of the defunct theme park.
When an army of relentless mummies, a life-sucking ooze called The Glob, and a hybrid
Behemoth rise from the depths of Monsterland, who will survive?
Monsterland Reanimated is an amazing follow up to the first Monsterland book. When I finished the first book, I just could NOT wait to find out what was going to happen next or if there would even be a sequel, so I was elated to find out the author was planning to continue the story.
It picks up shortly after the first book ends. There hasn’t been much time that has passed, so the wounds the characters suffered are still fresh in their minds. The loss and wounds they experienced at the end of the first book are still open and bleeding, forcing them to pick up the pieces left shattered at the destruction of Monsterland.
The world is left tattered and torn and it’s up to Wyatt and his friends and acquaintances to find out just what is going on and why and visit vengeance upon those who have caused such devastation in their young lives.
Wyatt is truly a great character. He’s young so one might expect him to be something of a hothead or irresponsible, but he’s anything but. He’s logical but pliable, so he has room to learn along the way. The relationship he is developing with his stepfather is sad, yet hopeful.
Some of what happens is vaguely predictable, though not in a way you would expect. There are plenty of surprises, both good and bad. There are characters we thought were finished who find a way back into the story, and I’ll admit, I was happy to see them.
I feel terrible for Igor. He seems like someone who wants to do the right thing, but life and people have crapped on him so badly over the years that he’s not quite right in the head. He doesn’t seem to know how to exist anymore.
Overall, I loved this book as much as I loved the first and once again can’t wait until the next book. I read it far to fast because I was dying to see where the story was going.
