The Righteous Dead is a fantastic read, I couldn’t put it down! James Gardner has a knack for keeping the audience engaged by keeping the plot moving at an an exciting pace, whilst still maintaining a depth to the characters sometimes lost in more action focused novels. I was worried I might be a bit squeamish for a zombie book, but actually the idea of this book isn’t to scare (like some horror books) but is more focused in a brilliantly written post-apocalyptic sci-fi genre. I would definitely recommend this book – it’s enjoyable throughout. I hope to see more work from James Gardner in the future.
