Strangers in the Land (The Zombie Bible) by Stant Litore
Posted by Krystal Larson at 1:37 AM Tuesday, November 20, 2012
The aging prophet Devora bolts awake in terror, gasping for air. In her dream she heard her mother’s shrieks as the ravenous dead pulled her from the tent. Devora had been only a girl then, crying as she listened to her mother's screams and the tearing of her flesh.
And in the morning, when her mother rose—undead and hungering—Devora slew her.
This third volume of The Zombie Bible takes you to 1160 BC Israel as the walking corpses devour the tents and homesteads of the People. Four will stand against the dead: Devora, who sees what God sees. The slave girl Hurriya. Zadok, a legend among warriors. And the widower Barak, fighting to keep his vineyard free of this new peril. But can they stand together? For the living fear each other—fear the strangers in the land—as much as they fear the hungry dead.
Strangers in the Land brings an episode from the biblical book of Judges to life, fierce and blood spattered. Few will survive the coming of the dead. None will survive unchanged.
I don’t read many Zombie books, so I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. Turns out this book was worth every minute of my time! This book revolves around the Old Testament and takes place in Israel 1160 BC. You’ll read many references toward some of the biblical stories, some of them with a twist. You don’t need to study the Torah in order to get the book, it just adds to the plot. The main character, Devora, is chosen to be God’s voice. She sees what He does and must do what He tells her to for the good of the people. She meets many odd characters on the way to the north, where people have forgotten God. They all have their different back story that makes your heart squeeze, and possibly cry (I totally did).
The characters were amazing in Litore’s third zombie book. Everyone played an important part, no one became lost or one-dimensional. You’ll really feel for all the characters… lives have been torn apart because of zombies, and everyone is so well-written that it’s like you’re right there with them. The writing is beautiful! You never got lost, everything was clear and well thought out. The plot stayed at a good pace. Nothing was too fast or slow or dragged on. I fell in love with everyone and when there was loss or pain there was that squeeze I was talking about. I’m very happy to have read this, if you want a good Zombie book with strong characters, a great plot line, and bible history this book is for you.
