John Chase has just arrived in Atlanta on a business trip when America experiences the worst attacks in history. Nuclear bombs destroy cities and the widespread release of nerve gas sends the majority of the surviving population into a murderous rage. Rescuing a woman who survived the attacks he must lead her to safety as Atlanta burns, raging infected roam unchecked and society disintegrates into savagery.
Voodoo Plague by Dirk Patton is the first book in his VooDoo Plague series. Voodoo Plague is an apocalyptic zombie read with lots of action!
Voodoo Plague was an entertaining read, or listen in my case. This action packed zombie story kept me entertained throughout. I loved the dynamic between the two lead characters and their struggle to survive. John Chase’s military backgrounded made for a very rich storyline that was artfully told.
The downside to Voodoo Plague was a couple of huge cliches that were distracting from the story. I know how hard it is to avoid all of the cliches that exist and at times they fit into the story so authors run with them, and sometimes it works. I think i this case the huge one didn’t really add anything to the story and could have been left out. That being said, it was a great listen that I truly did enjoy.
I have not read any of the other reviews and hoped to not compare Voodoo Plague with another well known zombie story, but I don’t see how to avoid it. If you are a lover of the Walking Dead, especially with the social aspects of it I think you would enjoy Voodoo Plague.
Narration: Jeffrey Kafer did a great job with this intense story. The female voice was very well done and I truly appreciated that it was not done in a falsetto – as I find that beyond ridiculous when male narrators feel the need to make women sound like helium inhaling teens. Kafer did an overall top-notch job and kept up a very nice pace throughout the story. Well done!
I rate Voodoo Plague 4 out of 5 Bullets
