The Gates of Byzantium (Purge of Babylon, #2)


This se­ries is crack. It's prob­a­bly not any good, but I can't stop read­ing it.
Stephen King style page­turn­er about postapoc­a­lyp­tic vam­pire-­zom­bies (zom­pires? vam­bies? ok, vam­bies does­n't sound near­ly threat­en­ing enough.

Wor­ried that there are 6 vol­umes in all and my to-read queue is al­ready out of con­trol.

The Purge of Babylon (Purge of Babylon, #1)


I was fair­ly sur­prised by this book. It's very, very shal­low, and it's re­al­ly not fun­ny, but it's a page­turn­er. It's like hav­ing a zu­chi­ni / egg­plant sand­wich, two in­gre­di­ents I to­tal­ly hate, yet at the end say­ing "hey, that's not a bad sand­wich". To­tal mis­tery.
