An over the top tale of a deluxe holiday resort in the shape of a Mayan temple overrun by the dead, full of laughs as well as scares - as all the best zombie stories are . . . another treat from the supremely skilled Littlewood. Amidst a sea of derivative zombie fiction, the Zombie Apocalypse series has always stood out as one trying to do something different, and this new volume from Littlewood is a fine continuation.
This really is a very different read from Alison Littlewood's more usual folk horror, and you can tell that she had a lot of fun writing it from the sheer joy of her prose . . . An ideal holiday read, although maybe best saved for the flight home. I give Zombie Apocalypse! Acapulcalypse Now a 555/666.
A great new take on the classic zombie plotline with plenty of unexpected twists and turns along the way, as it draws in influences from Mayan culture making for an unusual and surprising take on this tale of survival against the undead.
