DISCLOSURE Mark Wilson sent me dEaDINBURGH as an ebook for my honest reviewI have picked up other zombie novels started to read them and put them down because they were boring or failed to capture my interestNot the case with dEaDINBURGH At first glance I was worried this would be a pale imitation of Rot and Ruin Boy was I wrong The action sucks you in right away and you move along with and get to know the characters fairly uickly Also Wilson has put some of his own interesting twists on the zombie plague that give this one a uniue flavor and ambiance about it His real strength though is in creating charactersEach of the characters was compelling and believable Their motivations made sense and one could easily imagine them as real people The two main characters are very well done which is important I cared about Joey and Alys and rooted hard for them from the beginning But the real coup for Wilson here is his antagonist Bracha is an awesome villain with layers and a story of his own that's just as compelling a read as any in the bookWilson also kept the cast small giving us only a few characters to focus on and thus giving himself plenty of room to explore each of the characters in detailThe plot doesn't plod though which is sometimes the case with character driven work The characters and plot work together revealing layers about both the people and their inter woven stories that is compelling reading and a uick readAs with all GOOD zombie stories social commentary is inter woven Wilson handles this deftly and smoothly making sly observations about our society and tendencies toward zombie ness along the way These are never heavy handed nor in my opinion inaccurate Also I'm a pretty avid reader and have seen enough fiction that I often see surprises coming before they come Wilson managed to sneak one twist in there that blindsided me and I did not see coming at all It was awesome a definite pleasant surprise for meThe book is well edited with no misspellings typos or grammatical train wrecks that distract from the story Often with 99 cent Kindle stories this is a worry and one wonders will this be a book I delete before chapter 5 or will it be a pleasant surprise that makes me seek out work by this author dEaDINBURGH falls nicely into that latter categoryMy only uibbles with the book were with some of the pacing early on the training of our two youthful heroes goes by rather uickly at times and I felt it was just a tiny bit rushed I hated seeing the exit of one character during this time but unless we're settling in for a 10 book series or 500 page book there's hardly time to spend pages and pages training and growing those characters Still given the obvious talent Wilson possesses as a writer I think he could have stretched the training out a little All in all a very good read I will be recommending my 7th graders that liked Rot and Ruin put it on their to read list and I look forward to the seuel
