Flesh Eaters - Joe McKinney Very disappointed. I absolutely loved the first two novels but this one killed it. In a bad way.

Don't get me wrong, I adore the author. The writing was excellent, as usual, the premise and of course the zombies... But what ruined it for me were the characters. I hated the characters. I liked them at first but in the end they kinda... Became different people??? Like this character was against this kind of crime, but we find out later that she makes the same crime... This person was shown to put honor above everything else, then they go do the same act they were initially against. Like what the hell?? It is as if they were good, then bad, then good, then bad....if this is an attempt to portray the complexity of humanity, then it failed, big time. Hate the characters. They we out of character most of the time. Ugh.
