after Abraham s and his Gandalf like appearance in the Facility There are several characters that were killed unceremoniously after all the hype and build up that happened to them You could see that people were expendable story wise but some were just killed to add to the reality of the situation but the thing is I think Recht although writing a bleak zombie infested future wanted to end on a high note and to show some hope He saved several characters for a purpose not just cannon fodder Somehow like if Denton dies at least someone discovers his roll of pictures that chronicled the zombie apocalypse not the way in the book he just The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) got mowed down and was just namedropped in the end Blatantly forced character relationships Brewster and Juni Stiles and Rebecca Previously established relationships were left on the backburner as well and not much development happened which is unrealistic and not the way Recht writes With very few people to focus on the dynamics could have been better but it felt tacked on It felt very shallow very foreign and unnatural I could rant but I decided to stop and just tell the worst part the ending It was plain stupid and senseless The new author wanted it to be edgy poetic and realistic but it came out confusing empty and frustrating Read it andet ready to be confusedThough I can understand that Riding Hard given a halfway done book and finishing it is tough because you really can t be the original author and as a different author you have your own styleoing on but at least make the story as cohesive as you can This was just merely passable I was disappointed by the book because it had so much potential or perhaps Recht never wanted it to be just a trilogy because so much was left out Though now we will never know and all the readers now have is the thought of what could have been An ending that did not disappointAlthough it couldn t be finished by Recht himself as the author sadly passed away before the third novel was finished I m also hoping that someone Arabian Challenge gets in touch with to re word the now uite tasteless product description But hey ho back to the novelThehost writer that assisted with finishing the novel Survivors and the final installment of the Morningstar Strain did not disappointI do not like to litter my reviews with spoilers so you will just need to read the book to find out exactly what happens But Survivors is like Recht s other novels crammed with action and runs at a pace that is not too uick to be rushed but still keeps you wanting to turn the pages I read this one sitting I just had to know how things turned out for Sherman and his crew and how many times Becky would ask for auzeI was surprised by the somewhat sweeping ending but I was also moved almost to tears in places Well worth the read and a deserving close and tribute to a writer the world will miss The author of the first two the world will miss The author of the first two this tremendous series ZA Recht unfortunately passed away before this was released but not without a ood chunk already penned You can definitely tell when it s him writing and when it was haphazardly filled in by Thom Brannan Sadly Thom s writing falls short and just about ruins the final book The most telling is he tends to make relationships and conversations seem very artificial killing off characters without a thought while simultaneously making their deaths hollow and emotionless There are many people and crew put in the story only to be expendable almost as an afterthou A few spoilers here and there but you ll still have to read the books to actually Der Verlorene Koffer: A Graded Reader for Beginning Students get the story I wrote about the entire saga as I felt it was easier to review them all in one First of all I have a ton of respect for author Zachary Recht whom I consider a versatile person I enjoyed all three of his books even though the last one was finished by Thom Brannan due to the death of Recht in 2009 The Morningstar Saga follows the zombie apocalypse from a military point of view The first book Plague of the Dead written also with the help of Bowie V Ibarra really focuses on how every effort of containing the virus fails and how this pandemicoes

*is the third *the third in Recht s Morningstar series It is unfortunate that the author passed away after the second in this series unfortunate that the author passed away after the second in this series fortunate that the third was able to be published I had to self refresh a bit while reading because it has been some time since I finished the first two novels in the series I et this at times I suppose not all authors realize that readers do not necessarily retain all details of their previous works and that a little background detail is nice It also helps those who jumped into a series after the first book know what they have missedOnto the story itself Recht painted a nightmare apocalypse in which staggering zombies and sprinting infected much like 28 Days Later without all the blood spitting both threaten the survival of the human race Infection sets in turning victims into lethal and cannabalistic killing machines It doesn t stop at After having had to wait seemingly FOREVER for the final book of this trilogy to be released I wish the wait had been longerThe story itself was ood but NOT in the same vein as Z s previous worksThe trilogy was wrapped up well But the ending felt forced and rushedkill 60% of the characters that we ve been with through the previous books with no fanfair at ALLand just send the rest on their wayI m not sure how much of the story was fleshed out from ZA s notes but with the different writing styles of Z and Thom I know if I tried I d be able to figure it out4 stars for the finish of the trilogybut this was a disappointment overallI miss ZA Recht We lost a major talent WAY to early in his career I really enjoyed the series at least up until this book While the book was not bad it was definitely lacking I suppose that is because this book was not finished be the original author as he had passed away So as for the book itself we have many of the survivors I will not Black Wings of Cthulhu give names so as not to spoil earlier books in the Omaha Fac trying to establish a normal lifestyle and looking for a cure We have the sailors from the Rammage desperately trying to follow the trek across the US to reach them even stopping as familiar towns with the one person known to be immune from Morningstar And then we have Agent Sawyer still on his power trip determined to thwart everything to prove himself While the books was enjoyable it just wasn t near asood as the first two There were parts of the book the writing style was very different and character personality seemed off However I still think Thom Brannan did a fair job with what he had to work with as far as I could tell but there were a few aps Although I was saddened that after all the travels and loss some of my favorite characters died after all they had been through Oh well welcome to survivalist horror right Anyways o enjoy the book I finished the book and was left confused and saying Is that it Ok at least the trilogy was finished even though the original author passed away BUT it was finished haphazardly First off the new author tried to keep it true to Recht s formula but after reading the first two one can clearly see that this book is uite different Sometimes the writing is off Recht was detailed in his previous books he was meticulous at the description meticulous at the character development and meticulous on the plot Previous books were spot on and spiffy This however is not There are a bunch of weird plot holes Rogue agents take a practice demolition run on Abraham because why Lutz wanted to Women and Alcohol in a Highland Maya Town: Water of Hope, Water of Sorrow Revised Edition get revenge Sawyer thought Keaton had an answer This was really unclear and for all I know the author just wanted it to serve as a reason that Keaton could finally leave and help the survivors The chapters regarding these were wasted in my opinion Also some chapters felt like they were misplaced and belonged to different parts of the book that the author just slapped on and added a few of his own to serve the plot Characters ne.
