Well it s official, I have a new favorite horror author and his name is Keith C Black.This fourth and final installment of the Mountain Man series was just as good as the first three The story rotates back to Gus the alcoholic zombie slaying madman as he struggles to survive in a world where the zombies are slowing down plus 5 6 years maybe and the real threat are the human monsters Lots of cool stuff along the way such as a three story high dump truck from a big drilling operatio Well it s official, I have a new favorite horror author and his name is Keith C Black.This fourth and final installment of the Mountain Man series was just as good as the first three The story rotates back to Gus the alcoholic zombie slaying madman as he struggles to survive in a world where the zombies are slowing down plus 5 6 years maybe and the real threat are the human monsters Lots of cool stuff along the way such as a three story high dump truck from a big drilling operation that has been reinforced with steel plates and armaments How awesome would that be a sentient zombie soldier a boobie trapped mansion in the spirit of Saw loaded with traps and zombiesAnd of course the usual hodgepodge of moaning undead, marauding bands of evil men, and ass kicking violent good times Is this the end I know there is at least another short out there, a prequel called the Hospital The way it ended was somewhat loose and could either be final or ongoing.I will most definitely be checking out other books by the author in the meantime Always great to find a new author new to me anyway Great ending to an excellent seriesOnce again we find Gus introuble than he needs to be, but hey, that s Gus for ya Another enjoyable read Love the real live military heroes This author has some talent, people Give this series or any of his book a try Don t think you will be disappointed. Too bad a person couldn t pick whom they shared the apocalypse with I hated to finish this book It is, by far, the longest and the best of the MOUNTAIN MAN series and I savored each page and I believe this is the end of the series.Gus is back and I am so glad about that House painter by trade four years ago when TEOTWAWKI hit, Gus is an average guy who just happens to be a great zombie killer zombie, Moe, meatbag or whatever you might want to call the shuffling undead.The meatbags are w Too bad a person couldn t pick whom they shared the apocalypse with I hated to finish this book It is, by far, the longest and the best of the MOUNTAIN MAN series and I savored each page and I believe this is the end of the series.Gus is back and I am so glad about that House painter by trade four years ago when TEOTWAWKI hit, Gus is an average guy who just happens to be a great zombie killer zombie, Moe, meatbag or whatever you might want to call the shuffling undead.The meatbags are wearing down literally and Gus thinks his life is pretty idyllic on the little community farm where he s living now, where the highlight of his day is to scratch his nether regions But Gus finds out that zombies aren t necessarily the worst thing this old world now offers too many of the humans that are left are looney tunes and dangerous beyond imagination.A mansion full of deadly surprises, road bandits, Ollie and Collie two characters that are GREAT , Whitecap, Sick and Shovel, and author Black has some interesting surprises in this last book of a stellar series.Gus matured as a person and as a fighter in WELL FED and all of the characters are well drawn and sometimes too believable I loved the storyline and I liked how the book ended, with all the loose ends tied up with a big, black, odoriferous bow.If you are just chancing upon this series, do yourself a favor and start reading it from the beginning.1 2 The Hospital the short story that starts out this series also included in Cauldron Gristle 1 Mountain Man 2 Safari 3 Hellifax 4 Well Fed Be warned that this isn t a children s series There is profanity, blood, guts and gore galore.Thank you, Keith Black for giving me many hours of zombie entertainment in one of the best zombie post apocalyptic series out there
