Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
After Monsterland has imploded, the entire world is thrown into chaos. World leadership is gone, economies have collapsed, and communications are non-existent. Wyatt must go beyond the boundaries of his small town to reestablish contact with the outside world, and alert the government about a traitor-in-chief. During his journey he discovers a new threat released from the bowels of the defunct theme park.When an army of relentless mummies, a life-sucking ooze called The Glob, and a hybrid reanimated Behemoth rise from the depths of Monsterland, who will survive?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first book, Monsterland and was excited to see where this second book would take us.
In the first book (you could probably get away with reading the second book without the first although I don’t recommend it), the suspense and thrill was towards the end of the book. Monsterland Reanimated jumps in pretty quickly to edge of your seat suspense.
The story line picks up essentially where the first book left off with only a few weeks passing since the first book ended.
It sort of felt like a cross between The Walking Dead, Twilight and Frankenstein – all wrapped up into one story that had my anxiety level soaring.
In short – without giving away anything from the first or second book – the world is in complete chaos with no one in control. It’s “every man for themselves”.
There was definitely some violence, blood and gore… I’m not sure I would recommend it for my readers (ages 11 and 14), but would be okay with the “older” young adult age range. And certainly a good read for adults who like the paranormal, monster fantasy with suspense and thrill.
Short of a full blown anxiety attack, I enjoyed it! It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. And let me quick add – Michael Okon has one heck of an imagination. Props for two great books!
