The third novel in Peter Clines' bestselling Ex series. "All of us try to cheat death.  I was just better prepared to do it than most folks."   In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive--they've created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees.   But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind.  The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks.  And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge.   As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans...   ...there's more than one way to come back from the dead.… (mais)

Peter Clines once again hit it out of the park.

I absolutely love getting to see how the LA surviving community is evolving and dealing with the numerous challenges and dangers that are thrown their way. That Christian Nguyen woman annoys the hell out of me and I really hope that the heroes deal with her before she pulls something stupid and dangerous. Religion, especially the variety of Christianity that Christian is propagating, is going to be especially dangerous now, as we saw when that woman towards the beginning left the safety of the walls and tried to stop the guards from shooting her "almost" boyfriend (believing that he was still himself inside of the corpse) before being devoured by him and the surrounding exes.

I was completely surprised by Regenerator being kept in the cell, probably because I forgot he existed, and knowing that the demon Cairax was hanging around made me legit worry for the survivors when he (Regenerator) escaped. Speaking of the demon, I thought for sure he would go for Rodney since he controls the exes, but I wasn't all that surprised to find that he took Regenerator instead.

The final battle was totally epic and I was convinced that once again, one of the main heroes would die. I was especially worried for Zzzap since Cairax was hurting him so easily and he (Zzzap) kept talking about a cold feeling he had. What really had me floored though was Rodney's appearance at the battle and basically saving everyone. That was really unexpected, but his line ("You ready for round two, pinche pendejo?") when he showed up made me laugh. I am getting to like Rodney even though he is still a serious threat to the survivors.

The epilogue really cemented Zzzap as my favorite character and hero. His whole "going where I'm truly meant to be" joke actually made me laugh out loud. ( )

Read from December 13 to 16, 2015

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the previous editions, but I love the back-and-forth between now and then and still find the main characters interesting. A new "super" character is introduced and we meet a couple of characters from the first book again. I did not see the Corpse Girl thing coming. At all. And I'll admit after all the talking to himself Zzzap was doing, I expected him to be crazy. Instead, he was talking to a ghost...a little surprised by that. However, I hated Max and found it very difficult to believe that Stealth was talked into letting him hop into the dead body of a much-beloved citizen of the Mount.

Nevertheless, an enjoyable read for a long drive from AZ to CA and back again. ( )

Superheroes, zombies, and the end of the world. A great combination of elements that Peter Clines has succeeded in keeping interesting and powerful. ( )

Book one was good, book two was excellent, and this book is back to good. Overall the series was a great read, but individually, this might have been the weakest book of the three.

Why? Because nothing really happened. The book was spent exploring the characters' relationships with each other, more than interacting with the outside world. Also... the bad guys seemed like they were tacked on. We start the book with Legion - ohh... very bad - but then we get the demon appearance and Legion just sorta fades to the background. The reason for Legion's end-story acquiesance doesn't ring true, especially considering how focused on rage he was in the first of the book. And I don't really believe the heroes' naivete that led to the freeing of the demon in the first place.

The existing main characters were still there, and a couple were added, but... some of the previously added heroes (Driver) were just cameos here. There was a little bit of mystery around Corpse girl, but it didn't go anywhere in this story - I am hoping it will be further developed in the next book.

But, even so, it was a great series and now that I see there is another book in the series, I will go get it! ( )
