Lycan Fallout By Mark Tufo Book Review


 This goes without saying if you are fans of Mark Tufo and Zombie Fallout and the adventures of the ever sarcastic Mike Talbot; you don't need to read this just go and buy it...now!  

Blurb
The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man has clawed and climbed his way from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, to create communities and society.

It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung. One man finds himself once again thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win. Follow along as Michael Talbot attempts to thwart the rise of the werewolf.

Oh my goodness another sleepless night I'm so knackered but wow what a ride. Ive been a fan of Mark Tufo since I discovered Zombie Fallout and Ive read all 6 books so far; since then Ive been hooked. So I couldn't wait to to try Lycan Fallout. I wasn't sure if Mark could pull off werewolves taking over the world as good as his Zombie Fallout series BUT Ohhh...my goodness...yes he can; he has done it again with an incredible start to this new series...I'm..so sorry to even doubt you Mark....

ZF is amazing ride of Talbot jokes and sarcasm; great lines and character mentions reaching back into Zombie Fallout history. This is book 1 of a brand new series and is a stand alone book in itself; but I do feel if you read Zombie Fallout series up to date first; you will understand and appreciate this book so much more.
Set 150 yrs after Zombie Fallout we watch as Mike's devastation of outliving his family is almost too much to bear. But good old Tommy has watched over him and finally brings him something to break his depression...Oggie. Yes its another Henry and its what he needs to get back back ontrack.....Yay to Oggie!

I love how Mark has skillfully intertwined Zombie Fallout characters and its history as Azile returns; Ive missed her since ZF 6 so its fab shes back with Tommy as they convince Mike they need him to help them save the world...from another horrific threat....AGAIN! 

The Lycans are bigger and fiercer than werewolves, deadly more brutal and cruel than zombies, but don't worry the zombies are not all gone.....
Whats left of the human population are scattered across the lands gradually trying to rebuild their lives with new towns...eeking out a new existence with whatever they can. So with a witch and 2 vampires....well 1 vampire (Tommy) and half a vamp (Mike); plus some brilliant new characters which I'm sure we will all grow to love as much...join forces to fight and survive if they can against this new horror.  
Mike Talbot with his incredible rugged charm and sarcasm just cannot keep his mouth shut to stay out of trouble and I love it. Who would find the only pub in the future and get into a fight...well they started on the Oggie didnt they...no-one picks on Mikes dog EVER! Its a good job Tommy keeps an eye on him. 

Mcdonalds even lives on in the future but not as you know it lol...and we also learn what starts Mike into writing these journals.
I have to say Mike Talbot is one of my alltime favorite characters from any book or film Ive ever read...yes Ive said it...its a big claim but its so very true. 
Mark creates believable characters, that are engaging and make us care about them like they were our best friends. Its a truly compelling, fast paced plot which made me laugh outloud and then cry real tears; that doesn't happen often...sheesh!
When you get to know the characters they are real to us and it brings out every emotion; so now I'm on tender-hooks for Lycan Fallout 2...hurry...!!!
