Book Review #367 - The Zombie Playground (Grisly High #2) by Brian Rowe

Brin Skar has had a rough couple of weeks. She barely survived the grisly vampire attack in Bodie Ghost Town, the mysterious Paul is now a guest in her own home, and her dad Kristopher, dead for over a year, has emerged from the grave to try to kill his only daughter. After two somber funerals and the baffling disappearance of her Film teacher, Brin decides she needs a break from all the pain and heartache. And what’s a better escape than a round of golf at the brand new Macabre Golf Course? But as soon as Brin and her friends hit the links, strange noises and bizarre sightings begin to occur. And unfortunately for the group, the vampire encounter is going to seem like child’s play… especially when the zombies come out to play!
My Rating: 4/5
I received this book for review from the author. The author's Goodreads page can be found here.
This is the sequel to The Vampire Underground a book which I really enjoyed. I didn't like this book quite as much as the first one.
I found this book as action packed and fast paced as the first. It carried on virtually seamlessly from the first one.
The Zombies were an interesting inclusion. They weren't as interesting as the vampires though. Probably because with the vampires, the characters had proper interactions with them unlike the zombies.
Again like with the first book, I really enjoyed the movie references throughout.
The only problems I had with this book were Paul and the plot twist right at the end.
Paul is a vampire, yet he doesn't act like one. He knows that the zombies can't hurt him, he even states that yet he still runs from them and acts scared. It was funny though when a zombie did try and eat him.
The final plot twist with (spoiler alert) the portal came completely out of nowhere and didn't really fit in with the theme.
