Synopsis: Following Barracuda Bay’s homecoming cum zombie Armageddon, fellow zombies Maddy, Dane, and Stamp have fled to Orlando where they work at a theme park, hiding in plain sight at their jobs in the Great Movie Monster Makeover show. The three spend most of their time together in their apartment trying to avoid curious Normals and Sentinels—humans and zombie cops. While Dane and Maddy draw closer, Stamp drifts away, falling for a mysterious blonde. But when the mysterious girl puts their existence in danger, all Maddy cares about is hunting the blonde down to separate her from her head.
Review: Maddy, Dane, and Stamp have left Barracuda Bay after most of the people in town died after the Zerker attacks (see ‘Zombies Don’t Cry’) and are hiding out in Orlando. They’ve become at hit with their new jobs as part of the Great Movie Monster Makeover show, but also have spend a lot of time blending in with Normals and staying off the radar of Sentinels. Stamp has been going out a lot and dating a different girl seemingly every week, until he meets a mysterious and camera-shy blonde. Yet Val may be more than meets the eye and she may be a threat too dangerous for Maddy and Dane to ignore!
Maddy and Dane are hard at work trying to fit in with the Normals in Orlando, their new home. Stamp is more interested in hooking up than hiding out. His new girlfriend is strangely shy, yet when they finally meet her, Val trips Maddy and Dane into danger mode. Is she a Sentinel charged with bringing them back to face justice or does she have another motive all together? ‘Zombies Don’t Forgive’ is a snarky and funny story with action and Zombie adventure. Maddy has grown into her new life and is willing to do anything to keep her family safe. Stamp was a jerk for most of the book and Val was deliciously deceitful. Maddy, Dane, and Stamp learn all actions have consequences, even when you’re undead. I really liked Maddy’s kick-ass and take names approach to the problems they encounter with both Val and the Sentinels. I really enjoyed the story and how events turned out. The author even left an opening for the storyline of a next book, but not in a overly obvious or cheesy way. These are the types of zombies I can really sink my teeth into!
