Different, dull and exciting

I like it. The rational zombie tells a story about you guessed it, a zombie with a functional brain. The whole story is going through the motions of the zombie apocalypse and it was kind of dull seeing a zombie rediscovering everything but it can’t be helped because we’re starting at the beginning.

Not until the end did I get super excited to see what came next. Our rational zombie drove into a corner and fighting for constant survival became more than just a smart zombie and that’s what I was looking for in this entire book. Too bad it came to an end.

Overall, I think it’s a slow start to a huge journey for the rational zombie. I say huge because there are still so many questions to be answered. Why is it rational, how do you cure something technically incurable?
Was the cure actually a cure or did it only prevent it temporarily? So much potential to touch upon. I look forward to the sequel!

I listen to this when it's bedtime. Bad decision

The moon is made of cheese and a Phoenix lives there. While keeping continuity throughout the previous books. I believe 'A Demon and a Dragon' is a weird title to add to the series but expands on all the curiosities foreshadowed by the previous books. Virlyce explore some weird concepts like the soul being a dungeon raid or a empress being a dumb, gullible warrior who is an abusive mother to a turtle with the tail of a snake.

I read/listen to Virlyce's books because they're creative in execution and personality. I hope she continues to create weird and exciting stories that keeps me up at night, knowing that the story has not ended.

We've almost explored all the nautical continents. What's next? The moon, the world underground? The Ocean? Grimy's dimension of darkness? The so much land you can cover, so why not make a splash

Lucia is an unstoppable force with an unstoppable appetite for chaos. It's a lot of fun seeing the contrast between how normal people and Lucia would interact with the immortal continent, though somewhere down the line, I stopped caring about the stakes since there was no impending doom other than some lightning bolts and Lucia's libido. Reena's perspective was a nice change of pace to Lucia's *Me smash and me eat* approach, though it was short lived.

Immortal continent was a sequence of small jokes this time round and I was thoroughly entertained throughout. I hope to be completely caught off guard by Virlyce's writing and Mare Trevethan's narration in the future.

I like this, I like this a lot. Though I miss the subtle lisp of Moog, Katherine made every suspenseful moment a slash coated in humour and emotion weight. You can’t do this to me man, you’re making me feel emotions. I don’t know how to criticise novels but dude was it great. Thanks for the epic tales Eames!

I laughed way too hard when puppers fully embraced the abuse. I want more Mare Trevathan narrating Virlyce books! Virlyce’s comedy + Trevathan’s huge range of voices = aaaaah who am I kidding, they’re both amazing on their own.

It’s funny with strong character development. It’s light hearted (never makes your heart sink) and Mare Trevathan, who narrates it, makes the book so amusing I wanted to listen for 16 hours straight. Thank you Virlycr, very cool!
