Review: The Last Casket by Jack Wallen

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.

About Jack Wallen

Jack Wallen is the new name in horror. His works span genres and weave evil, conspiracy, and fear into nightmarish worlds.

Jack has been given the title "Zombie King" by his readers and fans. He didn't garner that title by dining on the brains of helpless victims. It was only after writing until his fingers and mind were nothing but meat for the beasts that he became a master of the zombie genre. During that haunted hay ride Jack produced works of fiction enjoyable by not just zombie fans, but anyone daring to take a peek into what might possibly become of humanity.

Of course, being of the insane writer clan, Jack isn't just happy with the penning of zombie fiction. Oh no, the nightmare does not end there. Like the late, great Freddy Mercury, Jack wants it all -- so, he will continue twisting the horror genre to meet his disturbed mind as well as write his Fringe Killer and Screampark series, and his joyous celebration of all things diverse -- Shero.

For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for penning in a genre with words of grace and horror
