There’s been an excellent review of The Becoming: Safe House over on Between The Covers. Heather had some interesting thoughts on the book in general:
Gone is the slow-moving, shuffling, stumbling, seemingly idiotic, only-eats-flesh-it-can-out-muscle zombie. Meigs’ flesh eaters are fast, intelligent, sneaky and calculating. … I plowed through this second installment in three and a half hours because I just couldn’t put it down. I kept thinking, ‘One more chapter, one more chapter,’ and before I knew it, I had come to the end of the book.
And on the characters in particular:
Ethan, Cade and Brandt have lost none of their toughness, but now we witness how each of them handles prolonged stress and fear…and how they’re starting to get on each other’s nerves. … Meigs also introduces some new characters into the story…introducing new people into the mix definitely keeps the story fresh.
Heather says a lot more than that on Safe House, so if you’d like to read the review in its entirety, you can buzz on over to Between the Covers and read it here.
