I began The Scattered and the Dead series about with Book 0.5 about six months ago. As the books have been published, 1.0, 1.5 and now 2.0, I have read them. It has been a very enjoyable series. The series continues following Fiona, Lorriane, Ray, Baghead and Decker. New characters like Marcus are introduced.
The world that the authors created in the first book disintegrates and burns. As the old world is destroyed, new worlds arise. It is not the same civilization as before. It is many different ones. What they are is determined by who formed them and under what circumstances. They are all brutal. The action in the book happens at a steady pace. There is never a boring minute. The characters continue to change as the world around them changes.
I think the reason I have enjoyed this series so much is the “grayness” of the characters. There is no black or white. No one is perfectly good or purely evil, although a few come very close to the second one. It makes the characters more realistic to me. Based on the ending of The Scattered and the Dead Book 2, the series is far from over. Good news for fans like me.
I received a free copy from the authors in exchange for an honest review.
