Book Review - Mace of the Apocalypse by Daniel J Williams

 A zombie novel with several new takes on the theme

Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease. That's the theme of Mace of the Apocalypse. The zombies have a few variances from the norm, but it's the cure, or partial cure that's the twist here. The cure brings out side effects that make the survivor more sociopath but not to the level of flesh eating zombie. The effort becomes to perfect a cure that doesn't trade away too much humanity. Mace is a character who has to decide to do more than survive and protect survivors but help protect those who are trying to perfect the cure.

This made it a more interesting, or deeper than average zombie novel. Plus, that it's narrative was well written made it a more pleasurable read.
