I have to say I was kinda disappointed with Air just a bit. Not with the story itself. I really enjoyed reading Air it was very intriguing. What disappointed me was the fact that I assumed that book 2 of the undead would continue with Megan and Jack's story from Fire but sadly it did not. I still liked Chris in Air though he has the heart of an angel.

I'm going to have to disagree with Scot Walker's review below. I thought this was a very well-written novelette. True, short sentences were present, but they weren't overused and they did serve to heighten the sense of urgency and suspense throughout the book. Just because a writer doesn't compose a story in a style you prefer, or a style that is unconventional to what most have been taught, doesn't mean it's wrong or even incorrect. It's simply that writer's particular style. All debating aside, I am not typically a big fan of zombie stories but I liked this one a lot. I'm looking forward to reading the first full novel in the series as well as any future books Mr. Esmont chooses to write. Keep up the good work!

I like Zombies but I don't like Esmont[s style. I wish he knew how to write a compound-complex sentence—or even a compound one—or a complex one—or even a basic simple sentence. But no, Esmont writes like this: Nothing. Absolutely. Nothing. That makes me. Want to read. At least not a few paragraphs. Because. Well. You see. The reader's mind. Mine. Specifically. Mine. Has trouble. A lot. Comprehending. Especially. A story. Where the action. Stops. So often. By periods. Esmont, please. Please. Esmont. Read. Perhaps. Reading may enlarge. Probably will enlarge. At least. I hope. Your ability. Your b asic. Writing. Ability.
