Book Review: Outbreak by Eric S Brown


In Bigfoot War II, the dead rose. The war between man and beast became a battle for survival. Hordes of zombies attacked both humanity and Sasquatch alike. Bigfoot War: Outbreak returns to that time period in the Bigfoot War saga and tells the story of what occured in Asheville, North Carolina as the events of Bigfoot War II: Dead in the Woods unfolded. Prepare yourself for a wildly different kind of zombie apocalypse.

My Review:
This book looks at the events unfolding in the town of Asheville as other towns fall to the Sasquatches and the dead. Pat has finally got the publishing deal that he has been working towards for years and is enjoying the chance to brag about it on social media when he is distracted by the arrival of the undead at his home. Zack has survived Babble Creek and is the hospital in Asheville with a federal agent guarding him, watching the town of Franklin fall to the undead live on TV. Now his only thought is to escape the hospital and the area.

Brook and Paul are supposed to be having a date night but she is left alone when Paul has to stay at the police station because of weird calls coming in. At first Brook thinks the traffic congestion is normal until she sees the screaming people running from an angry Sasquatch. Paul is now manning a police barricade as a stream of the dead are heading his way. Now he has to stay alive and locate his wife and child who are in different locations.

This was a look at a different town in the area and the carnage caused by the dead and the hairy beast army. These are short but gory entertaining reads.

    1. It's really hard to work out the best order to read the darn things with so much overlapping of the early books! I've got two to read but they aren't available at the moment which is annoying. I so much love these covers!

  3. This might be one of my favorite covers of this series, with the sasquatch lifting the police car and another climbing the building. Run puny humans lol. Zombies AND squatches? That sounds like a bad day...

    1. I think the zombies pale in comparison to the Sasquatch danger here! I do love this cover though!
