The year is 2243, and the Moon has become a popular site to bury loved ones because the population has become so large that cremation would create too much air pollution. But one day, a bigger-than-usual meteorite creates havoc, turning the Moon upside down. Now the living dead heavily outnumber those that are alive!
Dead Moon is the third installment in Clines’ Threshold series, which can be read or listened to as loosely connected stand-alone novels. Each book in the series requires an interesting plot to hold the interest of the reader, mainly because of how predictable the happy ending becomes. Even though the quality of the story stays more or less the same throughout the Threshold series, the audiobook narrator, Ray Porter, is doing the best he can; therefore, Dead Moon in the end doesn’t seem to step up to a satisfying level of excitement.
Dead Moon isn’t your regular brain-dead zombie apocalypse story. In this book, the zombies move and act coordinated, with purpose. That becomes so obvious that some characters begin to speculate if perhaps they are led by some master over-mind.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
