Wyatt Baldwin (no relation to Alec), his brother Sean, and his friends Howard, Keisha, and Jade were among the very few that survived the opening night of Monsterland. Yes, there was a theme park full of real werewolves, vampires, and zombies. Actually, there were seven parks around the world, all filled with celebrities and world leaders for the opening night. Now the world is in chaos with many of those leaders killed by the monsters that broke loose and rampages through the parks. Martial law has been declared in most areas, but it hasn't stopped the looting and violence (picture Mad Max type chases along the interstates).

Back in Copper Valley, Wyatt's group is trying to organize the surviving townsfolk and safeguard resources such as food, water, and medicine. Everyone is sure the situation is temporary and that the President will soon restore order. But when the teens go on a scouting expedition to the closest town, they learn that the danger is only beginning. There is a mysterious purple Glob oozing through the town and leaving desiccated corpses behind. An army of seemingly indestructible mummies attacks them on their way back home, and they even learn that there may be new evil brewing within the deserted theme park.

What chance do a few teens and some scattered neighbors have against these latest monsters, a private army of mercenaries, and the continued plots of Dr. Vincent Konrad? There are even rumors that Konrad may still be running things - although the kids saw him beheaded by a werewolf the night it all began. It seems like a nightmare where everyone is trapped inside a mashup of the scariest monster movies ever made.

Occasional humorous moments keep the tension from becoming too much. Readers will see Marty Feldman in their mind's eye as Konrad's assistant Igor sings to himself, "I ain't got nobody, and nobody cares for me!" And anyone who has received a lecture on the evils of carbonated soft drinks will laugh at the results when Whisp soda mixes with the Glob.

Still, there are relevant themes addressed within the story. Some carry over from the first book like the threat of pandemics and how governments deal with the diseases and the victims or corporate and political greed. Others are introduced (or more heavily emphasized) in this book. The definition of evil is one such theme. As Howard says, "I have learned that anything with a deadly intent is a monster and should never be misjudged. Evil is as evil does." The danger of judging by appearances is apparent as dentists and lawyers attack the kids for their car, while bikers help to protect them.

This is a mix of horror, suspense, and action. Fans of series such as Emmy Laybourne's Monument 14 or Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave will enjoy the Monsterland books. Teens coming of age in a world gone off kilter will seem familiar to them, but in a novel setting full of classic monsters.


Written by Michael Okon
Publisher’s Synopsis: After Monsterland has been destroyed, the entire world is thrown into chaos. Wyatt Baldwin and his friends must go beyond the boundaries of their small town to reestablish contact with the outside world. During their journey they discover a new threat released from the bowels of the defunct theme park. The danger of werewolves, vampires and zombies pale in comparison to an army of relentless mummies, Vincent Conrad’s reanimated monster and the menace of a life-sucking ooze they call The Glob.  Will Wyatt and his friends survive when they reenter the scariest place on earth?
Ages 14+ | Publisher: WordFire Press | April 6, 2018 | ISBN-13: 978-1614756729
