In the sixth book of the Dead Saga series, Nina is fighting more than just her demons; she’s waging war upon evil, because the greatest enemy now isn’t the deaders—it’s humans.
Determined to eradicate the Savages from earth, Nina must settle an age-old argument and bring together mortal enemies. Because it’s more than just their own survival at risk now…it’s everyone’s.
Running blindly toward danger is what Nina does best—only this time her eyes are wide open. She knows the risks, but she also knows that time is running out for Mikey; the Savages are hungry, and they’ll only play with their food for so long.
Nina must eventually make the choice between love and survival, because in a world gone mad, you can’t have both, and no matter how much you want to stay, sometimes it’s easier to say goodbye.
The Dead Saga is the type of series you hope to never see the end of. Each book is just as great as the last and Claire Riley continues to surprise me while never losing sight of the heart of the book. Many series either lose their steam or just keep repeating the same storyline over and over, but lucky for me The Dead Saga isn’t one of those.
In book six we are taken back to the post-apocalyptic world of cannibals, zombie/deaders, Nina, Mikey, a couple biker gangs and a few other friends, both new and old. I still haven’t decided how I feel about O’Donnell. Crazypants makes an appearance, though I wish she had more screen time as she is one of my favorites.
Nina is still impulsive and can be something of a brat at times, but she has grown as a person immensely. She doesn’t seem as selfish or stupid as she started out and that is something I can appreciate. She used to drive me a little nuts with some of her antics but she has definitely evolved.
We learn more about the Devil’s Highwaymen and the Devil’s Rejects, their backstories and reasoning behind their feud. The Dead Saga is now slightly tied into Riley’s Devil’s Highwaymen MC Romance series. I’ve read all of the Odium books so far but I’ve only just started reading the Devil’s Highwaymen. I haven’t run into anything that made it imperative to read the other series before Odium, so if MC Romance isn’t your thing, worry not, you will still have plenty of info about them in the Odium books.
Overall, this is another great story in this series. The only thing I wish was different is I wish there had been a bit more action, but that’s just me being picky. There is plenty in Odium VI to be surprised about. That ending though!
