#126: Desperate Souls - Gregory Lamberson

Check out the September Zombies Schedule at VVB32 Reads.





They're not breathing. That's why they're so still. But that's not possible...

Eleven months after battling Nicholas Tower and the demon Cain, Jake Helman has set up shop as a private investigator in lower Manhattan. When a woman hires Jake to prove that her dead grandson is dealing a deadly new drug called "Black Magic" on a Brooklyn corner, Jake uncovers a vicious drug lord's plot to use voodoo to seize control of the city.

While panic grips New York City, Jake Helman battles gun-wielding zombie assassins, hallucinations, and betrayal at every corner. But voodoo creates more terror than zombies, and Jake finds himself poised on the edge of insanity as he fights to restore the soul of the one he trusts.

My Opinion:
Totally rad!
Who knew zombies could be smart?! These ones may not win awards for brains, but they definitely are not your normal zombies. These ones are vindictive, and scary as heck!
This book is not for the faint of heart. It's graphic, loads of language, and riddled with drugs. So if you dislike any of the above, don't read it, but if you're like me and feed off violence, this is 100% for you.
I think this is a great story, no matter how far-fetched I believe it to be. I'd still never mess with a voodoo priestess.


5/5


Recommend? Hells, yeah!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
