Review - Crypto Squad by Eric S. Brown and Jason Brannon

As a boy, Marcus Tillman dreamed of being a sideshow barker, but never in his wildest dreams could he have imagined the kind of freak show he would work in one day. When the dead begin to rise from their graves and tear apart the very fabric of civilization, a special government-sponsored strike team known as the Crypto-Squad is created, and Tillman is put in charge. Comprised of beasts that are the stuff of rumor and legend, the Crypto-Squad’s mission is to eradicate a group of doomsday cultists who refer to themselves as The Unending. Refusing to accept defeat and determined to save those who are left alive, Tillman mobilizes this ragtag band of misfits, realizing that they are the world’s last remaining hope. Led by the Mothman, the Crypto-Squad is comprised of El Chupacabra, The Jersey Devil, Sasquatch from various tribes, Mongolian Death Worms, and more. As the legions of undead march across country, devouring what remains of America, the lives of millions rest in the hands of this dangerous group of rogue beasts. Eric S. Brown and Jason Brannon’s Crypto-Squad is a mix of monsters, covert operatives, cultists, and the undead. This is the zombie apocalypse as you’ve never experienced it before!

4 stars

Crypto-Squad by Eric S. Brown and Jason Brannon is a quick fun read.  Involving a host of mythological (to some) characters that form a secret government agency.  Mothman, Ness, The Jersey Devil, are just some of the creature characters to look forward to.

The agency is around to deal with things that are outside what most normal people can deal with.  This book deals with a group called the Unending.  These people are some super powerful necromancers who have unleashed a horde of zombies and have many more tricks up their sleeves.

This is a great book for people who like paranormal action and I'm looking forward to checking out some of the other books in the series.
