    I think with today's audience who loves zombie books and comics and movies and TV shows, like The Walking Dead, this was just a matter of time.

    I actually don't think it sounds bad. Something new and different for the companions to battle. (At least they ain't 'bio-weps'!)

    True, but in a series that is already stagnating, i want to see some new flashy Enemies not re-hashed ideas again and again.

    I agree with you. But zombies haven't been in DL before, have they?

    And, depending on who is penning which issue, the series is DEFINITELY not stagnating.

    Wait until you read Hellroad Warriors.

    I don't believe they have been in the series yet but they are in just about every other film,comic and t.v series.
    I don't mind Zombie's(in fact i've just finished a good ps3 game about them) it's just i would rather this post apoclyptic genre would stay as is.

    Ermmm, sorry to tell you but...

    A virulent strain of a predark biowep has been unleashed upon the denizens of northern Kansas, turning them into rotting, flesh-eating monsters.

    That's from the blurb on the back of the book. It wouldn't be a Victor Milan book without a biowep!!!

    You mean Pollotta. I'm disappointed that Milan has jumped on the "biowep" wagon, but I'll withhold judgment until I read it.

    I think he means it as just a means as a delivery weapon. Not a Pollatta living, breathing, walking around machine

    Personally, I'm excited to see zombies thrown into the mix.  "Rotties," awesome name for them too.  Kinda anxious to see how Deathlands would handle a serious class 2-3 zombie outbreak.  In speculation, Deathlanders would have a higher survival rating than pre-Skydark civilians due to the harsher environmental and societal surroundings.  All in all, I'm just hoping the writer can pull it off.  This is one of the few books I've ever gotten ecstatic to read and it better not let me down.

    It's just a matter of personal taste, but I'd be much more enthused if the companions' new adversaries were "Hotties," not "Rotties."

    Now that's something to get excited over!  HaHaHa!

    If the current authors are looking for a truly new and dangerous mutated opponent for the companions to fight they need to consider the Snotties, who deal death via suffocating mucous bubble, or explosive sneeze (booger frag).

    What does the Snottie headman say when his crew takes a break from raping and pillaging?

    "If you've got 'em, eat 'em."

     

    And people wonder why GE was relieved to see the back of me?

    I'm all for Hotties. And how come some crazy Baron has never gotten Millie and Krysty to wrestle in Maple syrup.

    Upon further contemplation, I should've given Wretched Earth a 6 or 7 star review.

    I haven't gotten around to ordering a copy of this one yet. After the last one I guess I am gun shy.

    I can handle a 7 or 8 star review after that last mess. A half star book just didn't cut it.

    I've been so busy working on my own books I wouldn't have had time to read it anyway. Got a day or twq free now so I guess I'll drop it on my Kindle.

    ie  

     

    Aieeee! 

     

    Outstanding.  This one gets a 9.5384629 out of 10.  It's gotta be in the top 10 of all time, or top 15.

     

    The story was very well thought out, very well written and provided numerous twists and turns.  It got even better since the author seemed to break up the story into large chunks.  He/she also tossed in quite a bit of their sly wit. The holy baseball-bat of mind blowing destruction was a nice touch. I’m not sure why the mousy guy went to talk to the quee-thingy thing, yet I was fully satisfied when he got swamped.

    The story got even better with reasonable/believable dialogue appropriate to each character.  The character development efforts were truly outstanding.  No cookie cutter BS here just solid storytelling.  This is one of those stories that could be made into a movie.

    I liked it, couldn’t put it down.  You will too.

    Good to hear that the series is back on track. Should get my copy in the next week or so.

    I knew the fans would like Milan's zombie DL.

     

    It surely isn't close to being as 'wretched' as the previous book. (Pun intended.)

     

    And it is a marked improvement over Milan's last book. Really looking forward to the more exciting sounding next book of Milan's, which is this Crimson Waters. Nice cover art.
