Maddie and zombie-slashing buddy Bryce choose separate paths. Bryce and Jack follow the U.S. military carrier while Maddie and the others head out to Jacksonville, Florida. They soon find a stowaway and he may be infected. With him is evidence that sends them to Cape Town, South Africa. An area that had yet to be cleansed of deaders.
Maddie must chance her life again and venture into an area infested with deaders to find the answers to how the illness started and search for a cure. Heather takes the lead with her and they run into allies and enemies, but in the deader world it’s hard to know which is which and who to trust. Allies become enemies as they get closer to finding the answers.
Bryce and Jack run into their own trouble when they learn what the military is truly up to.
Will Maddie and Bryce be successful in their missions?
Will extenuating factors prevent them from saving what’s left of humanity?
Retribution is the 3rd and final book in the Zombie Girl series. I’ve really enjoyed this series from the first book, Premonition, all the way to the last. I’m a little sad it’s over, but I know all good things must eventually come to an end.
Overall this is a great wrap up to the series. There are little bits and pieces here and there that made me laugh and made me curious about viruses and all kinds of sciency stuff I’m not normally interested in. I do feel like the ending was a little abrupt for my tastes, but not everyone is like me, so others may not mind it.
Maddie has grown from an annoying teenager into a force to be reckoned with. It’s nice to see a character grow the way she has. It gives me a bit of hope for the teens of today.
Retribution picks up right at the end of the last book and launches you through the end of the story like a freight train. There are no slow-moving points in this book, which is quite an impressive feat, in my opinion.
