When flesh-melting rock faces off against the undead horde, who will be left standing?
All hell breaks loose, when rock and the apocalypse collide. In this first spinoff of the popular I Zombie series, psychobilly band Kitty in a Casket kick the undead horde's ass with their special flavor of rock.
Follow Kitty and her band to a dive bar in the middle of the apocalyptic landscape and raise your fist as they prove themselves worthy destroyers of zombies, cannibalism, and the Mengele Virus.
The Last Casket was a super fun book. The main female character, Kitty, seems eternally positive, despite the apocalyptic conditions that have taken over the world. I think that she has the opinion that as long as she can make music, everything will be ok. She’s the lead singer of her band and they are finally getting plenty of gigs.
When I read The Last Casket, I kept feeling like maybe I missed something. Like maybe there was another book before it that I somehow didn’t see. Then I found out that this is a spin off from Jack Wallen’s IZombieI, which I had not yet read. You can enjoy The Last Casket without reading IZombieI. I did.
This book has so much positivity it almost makes you want to puke. Kitty is likeable but she seems somewhat naive. The relationships each of the band members have with one another are nice. They are carefree and seem to be happy even though the world is falling apart around them.
The tone of this book is a nice change from the usual depression that comes with apocalyptic stories. I would recommend it to anyone who likes zombie books that are a little different from the norm.
