If you're a fan of shows like The Walking Dead, grab yourself a copy of Blake Nail's Reintegration, a dystopian thriller set in a world infested by zombies. Hal is plagued by nightmares of his life in the Old World as he and his friends try to build a community in the safe haven they call the New World. Charleston, their leader, has grand plans to assimilate the flesh-eating Remainders into the New World. However, Hal's friend, Lex, continues to be a thorn in the side for Charleston, forcing him to banish Lex for good. After Hal decides to accompany Lex outside the settlement, he discovers a larger conspiracy and learns things are not as they seem. Hal must now return to the settlement and try to stop the madness before everything gets destroyed.

Filled with thrills, suspense, and plenty of gore, Reintegration satisfies the appetite of zombie genre lovers with a swirling mix of intrigue and action-packed sequences. Author Blake Nail never shies away from violence and describes action scenes in vivid detail that paint quite a picture in your head. The plot moves at a blistering pace, and the narrative switches between the present and the past. The characters are given backstories that add a lot of depth to their personalities. They are complex and layered, making them thoroughly compelling to read. I particularly enjoyed the conflicting natures of Hal and Lex, and their dynamic was one of the primary highlights of the book for me. I will recommend Reintegration to anyone who enjoys movies like Zombieland.
