    Squid and Max against the Ghouls

    A great beginning to a dystopian series! Squid is a young boy of 16, living with Uncle and Aunt, on a dirt farm. He is not abused, but definitely suffers from a lack of love. Lynette is a young woman whose father is a general in The Diggers, the military tasked with keeping people safe from the Ghouls. All that Lynette wants is to be a Digger, but since she is a girl, there is no hope of that. This story of how Squid and Lynette meet and become the (possible) saviors of their world is well-written and engaging. It does drag a little at times, but I think most of this is necessary to build up the story. The descriptions of the battles were a mix of zombie fighting and medieval warfare. The Ghouls were a unique type of Zombie (at least for me) in that they were after moisture from living beings. There were several villains in the story, including the Administrator who rules the government/military and Priestess Patricia, who is anything but religiously minded. I would have liked to know more about how these two very different despots came into power, but this will probably be addressed further along in the series. The writing was good and kept my interest and the narration was just right for the story.

    Good start to a trilogy

    Enjoyed this book very much - cheer for the Goodies and boo the Baddies - and throw in some zombies in the middle of Australia. What more could you ask for?

    Bring on book. 2

    I hate starting trilogies before they are all written; too impatient for the next one! Cracking opening and lovable flawed main characters.
