Monsterland Reanimated by Michael Okon - OPTIONAL

Monsterland Reanimated by Michael Okon, 233 pages, WordFire Press, 2018. $15.

Language: PG-13 (23 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence PG-13



This is the sequel to Monsterland, written by Michael Phillip Cash, aka Michael Okon.  I’m not sure why he changed his pen name for a sequel. Wyatt and his friends have survived the collapse of Monsterland and it has had serious repurcussions on the world at large.  Governments have fallen and Wyatt Baldwin and his friends have survived, but are on a reconnaissance mission to find information in a neighboring town.   They discover a new and even greater danger emanating from Monsterland, which threatens everyone.  Apparently Vincent Konrad’s goal of taking over the world did not end with his death.

Okay, I like monsters, and this book has tons of them.  Almost too many.  And if mummies and the Glob aren’t enough, there is a gang of doctors and lawyers who control the roads and kill travelers.  While the action was almost constant, Wyatt and friends seem more concerned with their romantic relationships than they are with losing family members.  I’m thinking that even hormonal teenagers should possibly be more disturbed by death than pondering their next kiss.  There is obviously a sequel planned, so if you are wondering about what is going to happen with your favorite werewolf and the fate of the world, hang on.
