Good Friday all hope you are getting ready for a great weekend we are rainy and cold here so I found some good books to read for the weekend . Today I am gong to review KNIGHTS OF THE DEAD by I.J Smith.
Long ago there was a period of time known as the Dark Ages. Finally the truth of those years are revealed. Will the Zombies rule or will The Knights win the war.
This is a wonderful twist on the zombie story, It is set back in the dark ages with knights and kings, fair maidens and well zombies . I know when you are thinking knights and kings you think quests and fighting each other for the king . But what would you do if the army you are fighting are the army of the dead . Randoul and his companions are up against the dead of the night. Will they survive the onslaught of the dead or is the war just starting .
I really liked the way the book started out right in the middle of the action . The author puts us in the middle of the battle as our mighty knights fight their way out. We are introduced to some really great characters . They are very strong and complex and each of them are very different in so many ways. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses . You see them go through a lot during the battles with the help of a witch Randoul is shown some disturbing visions thanks to the witch . I really like all of the characters and what they go through . Which is a lot .
This is a really fast read I read it in about an hour and it was a great fast read . The twist on the zombie story who knew you could combine zombies with knights . It is such a cool idea. The action is fast paced and started basically at the beginning and doesn't stop until the last page . There is a twist ending and it is a cliff hanger because this is the first of the series . So if you want a great story that has a great zombie twist. Check it out you will not be disappointed .
