Zombies have been introduced onto a small, secluded island through tainted animal feed and the meat from this livestock being consumed by humans. Bodies are rising after two or three days. Even more horrifying, dead virgin females of child-bearing age are reproducing after a 3 week gestation period. These infants are born with teeth and a poisonous bite. They develop into adult status after 2 years.
John Baptist (a religious, crazed serial killer) has created a spawning commune for these offsprings. They worship the Mother (Maria de Nazarene) of the first clone, known as the Son and Father, are working towards a new society where clones are superior and humans have been relegated to zombie slave status. The only thing standing in Baptist’s way is Dr. Ruby Barnes, a senior psychiatrist, and his colleague of karate warriors.
This was one of the weirdest books I've ever read! You're immediately informed of what has obviously occurred in a previous book before the continuation in Domination. Had I known this book wasn't a stand alone, I'd have hunted down the first one to familiarize myself with the story. Sadly, I have a #TBR list to follow, so...
Zombie verses Ninjas 2: Domination has an odd but exciting beginning, however the thought of a few karate warriors facing a thousand zombies is a ridiculous scenario- even with military reinforcements. Since the world of the undead is totally up to the author, I didn't cringe or throw out a n image of Jean Luc Picard (as in the memes all over the internet) asking, "What the 'bleep' is this?" There are zombies, okay. Then there are pregnant zombies, thanks to the awesome chemical creation Parthenogenesis, the infants are born with razor sharp teeth and venom! There's more insanity but No Spoilers!
I liked the story in general, but there was not enough information about the bad guy. I never found out why he wanted to enslave mankind (I guess it was in the previous book) Also, if you know me, you know I have a problem with weak, male protagonists. He couldn't even defend himself from his wife's jealousy! One of the main character's colleague (Maggie) was probably the most interesting because she had more of a "take charge" attitude, which is more like me. Once I know what I'm up against, it's on and she was that sorta gal. Then thee was the continuous working to produce an antidote formula, the whole book, and it was never finished!
The thing is, zombie stories are not set in stone. An apocalyptic world can go in any direction the author chooses, and that's cool, but this was too much for me. I just couldn't grasp exactly why it all happened this way and when confused, you don't leave the reader on the sort of cliffhanger that stops dead in its tracks. Ha! Pun intended! I guess you can say I liked the concept but not the way the author delivered it.
