A full cast of characters
4.5 out of 5 stars
Dan and Drew are surviving… just barely.
Clifford Edwards does an awesome job with this, there was a full cast of characters that he narrates in a different way. Each new character has a new and distinct voice and it honestly sounds like the book was narrated by a full cast of narrators, but it’s just done by one guy.
Episode V is another hit within this series, Edwards narration really helps introduce these new characters (which there are a lot of). Dan and Drew are still around and as effed up as ever, but they now meet new people along the way. They are also figuring out that things are ever changing and they have to worry about more than just the shamblers.
I’ve read the other 4 books in this series, and each book gives something new to it. This one gives more people with some new characters and new “bad guys” to be worried about. The change allows both Dan and Drew to grow as characters and the readers will be rewarded with each character being a little deeper and a little more understood.
As with all of the other Wormwood Dawn books they are full of filth and gore and cursing and they are a blast to read.
If Shawn/Edward and Clifford are reading this — keep ’em coming! I love Dan and Drew.

As Dan and Drew flee the chaos of the big city and head south, their road will take them to a small town with a horrifying secret. There, they encounter another survivor held prisoner by the townsfolk, and must fight their way out. Along the way, a shocking truth is revealed, leading them to believe that the mutant horrors were only the beginning.
Those who perished in the initial infection begin to rise from the dead. New creatures are among them that are even more terrifying than before. Their new companion, an ex-military specialist, leads them to a nearby camp where a small group of survivors have gathered for mutual safety. But is it as safe as its residents believe? Will the two of them fit in?
I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
About the Author:
Edward was born in Zanesville, OH, where he did absolutely nothing worthwhile with his life. Having drank himself into a permanent stupor, he finally moved to Indiana. Years and years of alcoholism and drug abuse kept him from exploring his intellectual interests; including astronomy, quantum physics, biology, and weird things like UFOs, mythology, and interdimensional or astral travel.
Throughout the years, Ed’s constant binge drinking and pot smoking had polarized his brain into the realm of the deranged. Pill popping aside, he now contemplates battles against massive hordes of undead mutants, and has barricaded himself in his deep woods home; prepared for the inevitable apocalypse.
Having an extensive collection of high powered rifles, Ed constantly stares out his window to catch the first glimpse of the stumbling horde. If and when that happens, he WILL fire the first shot.
Don’t bother talking to Ed. He won’t listen. He’s crazy. Just read the filth that he spews out into MS Word, and be happy. It’s all you’ll ever get.
