Monsterland – Michael Okon



“Monsterland is the safest place on Earth.”

The world survived the apocalypse…barely.

The plague is contained but the economy and most of society is still crippled.

And while the rest of the world is twiddling their thumbs, Doctor Vincent Konrad has found a way to…repurpose the horrors.

“I have put together an excellent team not only to run my parks but to control the inhabitants. Monsterland will be a gateway to the future…

This theme park promises to be be the forefront of monster-related research but not everyone seems to be on the same page.

“I prefer to call them zombies.”
“…The politically correct term is vitally challenged.”

Meanwhile, brothers Wyatt and Sean are desperate to attend the grand opening of Monsterland and due to an almost unbelievable series of coincidences, are able to score some tickets for them and their friends.

The vampires, werewolves and zombies all live up to their legends andit’s an amazing experience…at first…

“You keep saying it’s safe, Doctor. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Soon their exciting night becomes so much more.

Wyatt and his friends must fight for their lives…or die trying.

He yanked the axe from the body, cursed softly, and then headed towards Zombieville

Overall, I really enjoyed this!

The plot felt a little predictable at the beginning (the safest place on earth? Come on!) but Okon quickly added in the twists and turns so that I didn’t even know what was up or down.

I loved the dynamic main characters and the alternating perspectives.

Wyatt had such an interesting personality to follow and I was at the edge of my seat the whole time – especially the scenes with the zombies!

His cynical stepfather would so totally be me in this situation – he brought in some much-needed common sense!!

I also liked how Okon included the perspectives of the monsters – zombies, werewolves and vampires.

It was so cool to see how each species had such radically different world-views and how that impacted how they interacted with humans.

The book leaves us on a cliff-hanger BUT I have the second book in my hands – I’m beyond excited!!

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Interested in this one from K.S. Marsden? Buy it here:  Amazon

  1. I think any book in this genre suffers from somewhat predictable plots, but it sounds like this had really good characters to keep it interesting!
