From Goodreads: The battle rages on.
Ali Bell and Cole Holland’s crew of zombie slayers thought they’d won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular—the love of his life, Kat Parker.
On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond—Kat’s spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla is the one who betrayed them all, leading to Kat’s death.
But when Anima rises from the grave to become a force the slayers may not have the strength to overcome, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes, the line between hate and attraction is blurred…and the road to redemption isn’t through revenge, but letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.
My Thoughts: I wasn’t sure of how I would like this one since the story is told through Frosty and Camilla’s perspectives. But, I am glad to say that it was still enjoyable. Now, it has been a while since I read the last book so I can’t say whether or not Frosty and Camilla’s voices are distinct compared to the other three books. There was zombie fighting, hot and steamy attraction and humor. All of the things that you’ve come to expect from the series. I also enjoyed learning more about what happened to Frosty and Camilla.
As a series ender, I enjoyed this book a lot. It brings it all together and ties up the loose ends. Not that there was a lot, if any. For some reason I want to say that this was originally supposed to be a trilogy. There was a sense of contentment at the end of this one, and I am not sure if it was there at the end of the last one. I think that this was a good way to end the series.
