I just did a video about this book! Check it out! *Ahem* Onwards to the review! President of the US, World Leaders, and Thousands Dead. Many still missing as the world reels from the impact of the Monsterland disaster. Monsterland - once a shining beacon of hope, has fallen and the rest of the world with it. Vincent Konrad promised to lead the world out of the first apocalypse (the zombie one) by rounding up all of the zombies (and werewolves and vampires) and restarting the economy. But then...on opening night...what promised to be a fun event turned into something very different. The world is still reeling but the survivors are picking up the pieces. "Right now, my concern is Copper Valley." Carter paused for a minute and looked at Wyatt. "And my family." Wyatt and his family survived (barely) and their town is limping along. Suspicious and malevolent things are happening in the nearby towns, and it is becoming increasingly possible that Vincent Konrad - their once savior - may still be around. He stood holding his own hands out triumphantly shouting, "Behold...I give you life." It's up to Wyatt and his family to figure this out and keep everyone alive. "Doesn't matter. We're attacking Monsterland at dawn." Whew. This one was good! I loved how Michael Okon took this sequel and ran with it. I'm beyond impressed. I was expecting this one to be good but WOW - blew me away. The first book introduced zombies, vampires and werewolves in rapid succession, and this book expanded the lore beyond what I ever expected and yet it worked so well. I was really surprised - because adding so much so quickly in such a short book often strains the credibility of the book but that was not the case. Okon finesses in so many legendary creatures that I became more and more excited with each new addition. In addition, the characters this round felt so much more real. Their personalities felt distinct in the first book, but this round they felt alive. Wyatt's character growth surprised me and his friends were equally fun additions to the book. I wish Carter had a bit more page time but other than that, I was really pleased with the balance. I am incredibly excited for the next one - this is going to be awesome!

Since this is a sequel, the beginning moves faster as the world building happened in the first book and we already know the characters. The characters have grown from their experience in Monsterland, so they’re more mature than in the first installment. It did suffer from a little bit of second-book-syndrome. While the first book was incredible, this one was just good. I had higher hopes for it and although it was still entertaining, it wasn’t as great as the first one was. It was an awesome follow up and a wild ride. I wouldn’t have expected less from Michael Okon.

    See more of my book reviews on my blog, Literary Flits Monsterland Reanimated is the second novel in this fun young adult series and it starts pretty much where its prequel, Monsterland, left off.

I would definitely recommend reading the series in order because, while Michael Okon does a good job of recapping what went before, obviously he doesn't remind readers of every detail! This novel takes more of a science fiction dystopia direction for its main narrative, but there are still plenty of nods to classic monster movies - and classic horror novels too. I managed to spot several myself, but I am sure that horror aficionados would enjoy identifying even more references. Our intrepid group of teens (minus one, plus another) sets off in stepfather Carter's police car when Copper Valley loses all outside communication, to discover what has happened in the wider world. There's a great highway chase scene on the way - and then things all start getting very weird! I won't say anything else about the plot in order to avoid spoilers, but I was amazed at the breadth and quantity of ideas that Okon incorporates into this tale. At times there was almost too much to get my head around so I felt I needed to slow right down to understand everyone's role and motivations. It's certainly an exciting ride!

    The expression “in for a penny, in for a pound” came to mind as I opened Michael Okon’s Monsterland Reanimated. Having already read and reviewed Monsterland, I thought why not take a look at the sequel. Admittedly, Monsterland is a book way out of my comfort zone. However, as I reported in my review of Okon’s Witches Protection Program, I made judgments about that book only to find that I not only enjoyed it, but also found humor in it. So in reading Monsterland Reanimated, I reminded myself to The expression “in for a penny, in for a pound” came to mind as I opened Michael Okon’s Monsterland Reanimated.

However, as I reported in my review of Okon’s Witches Protection Program, I made judgments about that book only to find that I not only enjoyed it, but also found humor in it. So in reading Monsterland Reanimated, I reminded myself to be open-minded. Okay, I must admit, Monsterland Reanimated is still out of my comfort zone, but I am not sorry I read it. I do recommend reading the two books in order to get the full effect of both stories. The world is in chaos—hmmm, is that much different from real life? The difference, of course, lies in the fact that zombies, werewolves and mummies are out in full force. Add to those monsters, “a life-sucking ooze called The Glob,” and we have a rollicking story full of blood. No doubt this comment will reveal my age, but The Glob certainly brought to my mind The Blob from movies long ago. While Monsterland Reanimated may not be suitable for all book clubs (i.e. my book club), a book club or an informal group of older teens and young adults who especially like vampire and zombie stories will find the book fun, despite the amount of gore---or possibly because of it. Michael Okon is a “lifelong movie buff” and I can see how his love of movies carries over into the writing of the three books I’ve read. They are all visually appealing in the sense of creating pictures for readers. I also enjoyed the note that Okon is a “sucker for self-help books.” I am too.

    Wyatt Baldwin (no relation to Alec), his brother Sean, and his friends Howard, Keisha, and Jade were among the very few that survived the opening night of Monsterland. Yes, there was a theme park full of real werewolves, vampires, and zombies. Actually, there were seven parks around the world, all filled with celebrities and world leaders for the opening night. Now the world is in chaos with many of those leaders killed by the monsters that broke loose and rampages through the parks. Martial law Wyatt Baldwin (no relation to Alec), his brother Sean, and his friends Howard, Keisha, and Jade were among the very few that survived the opening night of Monsterland. Yes, there was a theme park full of real werewolves, vampires, and zombies. Actually, there were seven parks around the world, all filled with celebrities and world leaders for the opening night. Now the world is in chaos with many of those leaders killed by the monsters that broke loose and rampages through the parks. Martial law has been declared in most areas, but it hasn't stopped the looting and violence (picture Mad Max type chases along the interstates). Back in Copper Valley, Wyatt's group is trying to organize the surviving townsfolk and safeguard resources such as food, water, and medicine. Everyone is sure the situation is temporary and that the President will soon restore order. But when the teens go on a scouting expedition to the closest town, they learn that the danger is only beginning. There is a mysterious purple Glob oozing through the town and leaving desiccated corpses behind. An army of seemingly indestructible mummies attacks them on their way back home, and they even learn that there may be new evil brewing within the deserted theme park. What chance do a few teens and some scattered neighbors have against these latest monsters, a private army of mercenaries, and the continued plots of Dr. Vincent Konrad? There are even rumors that Konrad may still be running things - although the kids saw him beheaded by a werewolf the night it all began. It seems like a nightmare where everyone is trapped inside a mashup of the scariest monster movies ever made. Occasional humorous moments keep the tension from becoming too much. Readers will see Marty Feldman in their mind's eye as Konrad's assistant Igor sings to himself, "I ain't got nobody, and nobody cares for me!" And anyone who has received a lecture on the evils of carbonated soft drinks will laugh at the results when Whisp soda mixes with the Glob. Still, there are relevant themes addressed within the story. Some carry over from the first book like the threat of pandemics and how governments deal with the diseases and the victims or corporate and political greed. Others are introduced (or more heavily emphasized) in this book. The definition of evil is one such theme. As Howard says, "I have learned that anything with a deadly intent is a monster and should never be misjudged. Evil is as evil does." The danger of judging by appearances is apparent as dentists and lawyers attack the kids for their car, while bikers help to protect them. This is a mix of horror, suspense, and action. Fans of series such as Emmy Laybourne's Monument 14 or Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave will enjoy the Monsterland books. Teens coming of age in a world gone off kilter will seem familiar to them, but in a novel setting full of classic monsters.

After the disastrous opening night of Monsterland the survivors are trying to pick up the pieces. The small towns are cut off from all communication and the world is in chaos. Vincent Konrad has thought of everything and his loyal assistant set his plan B in motion as soon as he could. The army is coming to Monsterland and so is a brilliant doctor who's been researching how to bring the dead back to life. Are the survivors skilled enough to fight off this next attack? Area 51 has captured a fluid that's come from aliens. They've been doing experiments with this purple liquid and it seems to get stronger with every life force it takes. It seeks human heat and will devour everything in its path. Rows of the undead are lined up to become the biggest monster army the world has ever seen. Vincent Konrad is not ready to give up his plans of world domination and will go after it with everything he has. He was expecting the chaos that came after the destruction of Monsterland and is ready to rise from the ashes. He doesn't count on a strong group of survivors that doesn't back down without a fight. When the world is recovering from the biggest attack its ever faced, who will still be standing after all is said and done? Wyatt and his friends each have skills of their own. After the horrors at Monsterland they've seen the worst and survived. Wyatt's best friend has disappeared and they fear that he might not have made it out alive. The teenagers are smart, resourceful and quick to think. They know that the world is depending on them and with the help of Wyatt's stepfather they go to a neighbouring town to find more survivors. Their trip is filled with scares by people who were once at the top of society, now roaming the streets to take everyone out who comes into their territory. Will they manage to survive this next ordeal? Monsterland Reanimated is the second book in the gripping Monsterland series. It's fast-paced and filled with action. The teenagers are strong young people and I loved how they're taking care of each other. I was rooting for them to find the answers they need before it would be too late. I loved how Michael Okon writes about many of the monsters from everyone's nightmares and makes them feel so real. I could easily imagine mummies roaming the streets, searching for their next victim and I really like it when an author stimulates my vivid imagination. Michael Okon's main characters really stand out and because of them, this story is fabulously thrilling. The Monsterland series is an absolute must-read, it kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.

    Make sure that you've read the first book before you read this one. The first half of this book is mostly regrouping, restructuring, decompressing. There's also a bit of build up for the second half of the book. It's kind of a slow read in the beginning.

In the first book, there's a slow burn until we get to all of the action. In the second book, we have some breathing time before we get to all of the action. I'm hoping Okon uses this same formula while writing the third book in the series. As a young adult book, I think it's incredibly well done. There's a bit of sweet romance, but it's not over the top. Wyatt is a stellar character because we actually get to watch him grow, since we see into his thoughts and processes. He often comes to realizations that would have taken much longer if he weren't in such a dire situation. I think most young adults will learn quite a bit from this...mainly to look inside and ask themselves questions. I actually enjoyed this book better than the first in the series. The characters remain strong and we get to know them more intimately. There's plenty of action and fantasy, but the core values of life are still present. The main reason is that I was expecting this to be a young adult book rather than a shortened adult book. As a writer, many of you will know Michael Okon as Michael Phillip Cash. As MPC, he wrote my favorite book of his and I found myself continuously searching for that same feeling in all of his other books. As Michael Okon, I expect young adult. Though I'm not a fan of authors using more than one name, in this case it was a brilliant and strategic move and makes reading his works far more easier.

I don't know how Michael did it - but amidst all the crazy/saving-the-world stuff he managed to add a little teen romance AWWWW! :-) If you love The Goonies, The Walking Dead or Z-Nation - read this... its way better! If the first book didn't already do it for me - I am now an official fan. Can't wait to read the next in the series. I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Kate Tilton Blog Tours and The Author ~ Thank You!

I enjoyed watching the relationship grow between Wyatt and his stepdad, Carter. I also enjoyed what item they realized could help take out the mummies. You will have to read the book to find out what it is! On a side note, my mind is blown that Michael Okon is also the author Michael Phillip Cash. I have read his books and I had no idea they were the same person! "As long as humanity was stronger, that was all that mattered."

Wyatt and his friends realize that they are no longer little kids and that their lives are not ever going to be the same again. Communication devices no longer work with the internet down and with no phone service they need to make contact with a friend of Carter’s in the next town. Wyatt and his friends are chosen to make the trip and along the way they are ambushed by monsters of the human variety. But the human monsters are not the only thing they have to worry about now. On their return trip home to Copper Valley they run into a horde of mummies heading for Copper Valley. They find out that the mummies are headed to Monsterland and that is where the battle will began. They must find out who is controlling the mummies and stop them before they take over the world and everyone ends up dead. Wyatt, Lily, Howard, Raven and the others fly back to Copper Valley to save their families and to stop the mummies and their creators. I loved the first book Monsterland and was so glad to have had the chance to read more of this world. It has all of my favorites in it like zombies, vampires, werewolves. I love the amazing roller coaster of a ride that Wyatt and the others carried us on chasing the monsters and being brave enough to stand up and fight them. I loved learning of the very thing that stopped the monsters now that was cool. I also loved all the reference that was made from other books and their characters. You know like easter eggs as they would be called. Monsterland Reanimated is a very fast paced read that had me hooked from the very first page. It has lots of action and adventure that will last a lifetime. I can’t wait to read more of this world in the next book of this wonderful series. When I was reading Monsterland Reanimated it was like I was seeing a movie playing in my head. Yeah this is one story or two, Monsterland and Monsterland Reanimated that I would love to see in the theater on the big screen. If you love monsters, vampires, zombies, werewolves then you are going to love Monsterland Reanimated. Pick your copy today! But if you have not read the first book Monsterland then let me suggest that you pick up a copy of that one to read before reading Monsterland Reanimated to find out how Wyatt’s story began and what happened at theme park Monsterland and the vampires, zombies and werewolves.

    If you thought a theme park full of deadly monsters was bad, the aftermath when it all goes horribly wrong is even worse.

He made quite the impression when he showed up again and quickly became a star in this follow up. I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. Yes, there will be another book in this thrilling series and I’ll be first in line. I am huge on horror and thrillers and anything monsters and this has it all. Also liked the apocalyptic tones. Once the action begins it doesn’t slow down. And there are some wild scenes that I think I’m glad I couldn’t see. LOL Madcap fun through and through. I received a complimentary copy. My review is voluntarily given.

    This book picks up right after the first one. Therefore, you will need to read the first book, Monsterland in order to really appreciate this book. Although, why won't you want to read the first book as it was amazing and just picture the movie, Zombieland with Woody Harrelson featuring a guest appearance by Bill Murray.

Yet, where do you begin with mummies and an purple goo that destroys everything in its path? It won't be easy but Wyatt and gang are up to the task. Everything about this book is an "A+". The characters, storyline, writing, and there is plenty of action. Plus, there was a surprise or two thrown in the mix. I can't wait to read book three. This book is monstertastic!

    ^^Note: It would be a grave injustice to the author not to read the first book before reading others. With that said, although Horror stories are not my "cup of tea", Michael Oken has done a very good job in creating this Horror series. It is graphically gory and the action and suspense is non-stop. The story-line is very creative. Although gruesome, it does bring a few interesting points up for discussion.

The story-line is very creative. Although gruesome, it does bring a few interesting points up for discussion. The three points which was most prominent in my mind was: (1) What seems so important when one is young changes, and is often embarrassing as one matures. Yet most of us put so much emphasis on it a the time. (2) When one is put in devastatingly challenging circumstances. one often discovers strengths and ideas he/she would never have realized was possible. (3) When one loses loved ones and a life one feels comfortable in, no monetary means can compensate for that loss. The characters were all very well portrayed and the scenes described fairly well. Some scenes wee so bizarre it was hard to visualize. This would surely be a "hit" if it were made into a movie. I am sure those who enjoy Horror films would anxiously attend it and eagerly await the next one. *This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.

    Okon certainly didn’t disappoint in his sequel, MONSTERLAND REANIMATED. Out with the old monsters of werewolves, vampires, and zombies, and in with completely new monsters, human and inhuman alike. It’s definitely an inventive story that borders on campy without taking itself too seriously or being absolutely ridiculous.

There were no eye rolling moments or questioning anything that was going on. It was spooky and campy and there were stakes and consequences and he’s just as brutal in MR as he was in MONSTERLAND. No one’s safe. Looking back on my review of the last book I didn’t mention anything about the simplicity of the writing. I noticed that a bit more here. It wasn’t distracting to the point of getting pulled out of the story, but I noticed it here. I was also reading an ARC so it could rightly have gotten cleaned up in the final version, so take that for what you will. Okon tries to do something different with his world, but at the same time they’re all things that make sense and don’t feel preposterous within the story. One of my favorite parts was the roving band of professionals staking out a section of highway and killing people to get their cars. Sure, people like dentists and lawyers don’t have brute strength (blanket statement here, I’m sure there are some burly dentists out there striking way more fear into their clients than what dentists normally do), they have smarts so it’s not outside the realm of reason that highly intelligent people banded together in what is now the apocalypse to help ensure their survival. It was just done in a more comedic and surprising sort of way and I liked it. The ending set up the series for another book, which I’m sure is coming. The story as a whole gets wrapped up but there’s a thread there. A big one. It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s more coming. And further kudos to Okon for keeping level-headed adults in the picture even after everything went to hell. I think this story proves that adults don’t need to be completely eliminated from the picture in order for the kids to do their thing and that the two can work in conjunction without getting in each others’ way. Plus Carter and Wyatt’s building relationship was totally endearing, especially at the end. I really liked that. An excellent, exciting sequel, MONSTERLAND REANIMATED is funny, creepy, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are fantastic, the story moves like lightning without leaving anything behind, and any horror fan will delight in the monsters that Okon creates. 4 I received a copy of this book from the author through The Children’s Book Review in exchange for an honest review.

The world’s leadership is gone, the world economy has collapsed and in Copper Mountain, the site of the US Monsterland, Wyatt, his step-father Carter and his mother and brother must try and figure out what to do next. The town is isolated and all services have ceased, but Carter, a policeman, is determined to rally those who are left and try to organise some sort of civil society. Lawlessness is rampant though and worse than that, there is still something happening at Monsterland. It seems that Monsterland creator, Vincent Konrad is not quite as dead as everyone supposes. He and his faithful sidekick Igor have plans to take over and rule the world, with his army of living mummies. So starts a frantic race against time to stop the evil Vincent from succeeding. I had not read the first Monsterland novel, but really it is not necessary to have done so, before reading Monsterland Reanimated. Author Michael Okon gives us the backstory very well as events unfold in the new story. I would never have believed a novel about zombies, shape-shifters, and monsters in general, would captivate me quite the way this one did and that is a real credit to the author. I found his writing style and dark humour, with some subtle and not so subtle pop culture references to be immensely enjoyable to read. Despite the fact that this is a book that delves into the darkest, most evil places in our hearts and is full of blood, splatter and gore, it is also a story that highlights and celebrates the most redeeming features of humanity. I particularly enjoyed the interplay and the developing relationship between Wyatt and his step-father. For anyone who has been part of a blended family, the emotions and feelings will be evident. This is a fun, enjoyable read and not just for fans of the genre. I was pleased to see a third book is in the works and I know fans of Michael Okon’s work will be pleased about that.

    When I first grabbed this book, I didn’t realize that it was the second book in a series. I read it as a standalone, and it wasn’t the worst experience! Some of the references to the previous book went over my head, but this book still does a good job of explaining itself enough that I could get through it. I would recommend getting the first book before reading this one though. From the hints I got in this novel, the first one was awesome! The book is told from two POVs, Wyatt and Igor.

I would recommend getting the first book before reading this one though. From the hints I got in this novel, the first one was awesome! The book is told from two POVs, Wyatt and Igor. Wyatt is the teen who survived the last novel and is now trying to piece his life back together. Igor is a loyal friend of Victor who is determined to bring him back at any cost. This book is definitely action-packed. It can be a bit gory at times, but I personally don’t usually mind that, so I loved it! It reminded me of playing the video game “Monster Madness Battle for Suburbia” where the characters just use random items to defeat the monsters. It really gives the book a personal feel because instead of having some sort of machine gun or magical weapon they are fighting with everyday items you would find on the street. There was also a lot of worldbuilding. We got to see what is happening in the world since Monsterland has shut down, especially since several political figures died at the park. It was interesting to see Wyatt’s dad try and talk to neighboring cities, and seeing Igor’s side of things as Victor’s team are doing their things. The plot moved smoothly. It took me a bit of time to get into the story, but once I was in I could barely put the book down. The way each scene had a new twist kept me addicted to the story throughout! I did not notice any editing errors as I was reading this. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action-adventure books about teens fighting monsters.

Monsterland Reanimated is a completely unique, and imaginary story, that leaves readers wanting more. I had so much fun reading this book, and loved all the references to old monster tales/movies. I found all the characters to not only be realistic, memorable, but fun as well. The main character Wyatt, since the events of Monsterland realizes that he is no longer a child, and that he has to stand up and take greater responsibility to ensure the survival of himself, and his friends. I enjoyed reading about each characters development, and seeing different relationship dynamics between characters change as they come to terms with what is happening. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun, fast paced read about survival against monsters.

    What a brilliant continuation to the Monsterland series! I loved this second book. It was excellent to catch-up with the guys again, and get an opportunity to see how they would battle the follow-up to the dreaded Monsterland. I loved getting to know the group even more. We really got to connect with them, their personalities and their fighting techniques, in the first book, and we got so much more detail about them in this book.

The pace matched the story very well. It kept moving, to really blend well with the fact they were chasing and fighting monsters that needed to be dealt with before they destroyed the world as they know it. It had moments to get to know the surroundings, but really just kept it exciting and dramatic, which was brilliant. Overall a brilliant read and one that a lot of reader will enjoy!

I liked the(in my personal opinion) homage to Frankenstein, I was personally confused about some plot points regarding Vincent's motivations hopefully it will be explained in a future book in the series. I also wish that the romantic plotlines could've been explained better the plot twists involving there felt a bit rushed. Overall I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to seeing where everything goes in the next book. I personally rate the book 6 and a half out 10.
