Review: Abandon the Night (The Heroes of New Vegas Book 3) by Colleen Gleason

Everything they knew is gone...

Five men emerge from the remnants of destruction with extraordinary new powers.

They are humankind's last hope, but they cannot survive this devastated world alone.

Quent Fielding had it all: money, power, women, good looks...until he and his friends were frozen in time for fifty years.

Now he finds himself lost and alone in a new world of overgrown urban jungles.

Aside from the zombies, wild animals, and survival skills, his biggest challenge is taming the sexy, elusive, sharp-tongued zombie hunter, Zoe Kapoor.

I finished Abandon the Night in one day. I couldn’t put it down. So many questions I had before get answered and are replaced with a whole bunch of new ones I can;’t wait to discover. Just when I thought this series couldn’t get any better…

I really didn’t know what to think of Quent from the very beginning. Now that I have finished, I got to say I love him. Sassy and angry is my overwhelming impression of him. As his story is revealed, I totally got it. Zoe I at first thought was more feral than human. She also has a sad story and some serious motivation to all her killings. They certainly do quite a bit of boinking (Sneaking Zoe!) but all of it pales in comparison to why they do it. Really I did a lot of giggling with this book but when it’s all said and done their story and romance is my favorite so far. If you’ve read the series you know Quent has a special gift. The who/what/why about it has quite the WOW factor this time around. And when the secret for it is reveal, yeah…I didn’t see that coming. Yes these lovers get a happy ending and even in the end I was laughing. Oh the hazards of having sex in a tree…BAHAHAHA!!!!

While the story itself is great it’s the journals of the people who survived the change That has me riveted. Between most of the chapters there’s a glimpse of what one person went through. This is my third book in the series and by now I know somehow it’s tied to the current story. When they first appear, I immediately start guessing what the tie in is. Some I find sad but when the puzzle pieces fall into place I find myself excited I guessed right. As for guessing right, I have a theory about the gangas. I’m hoping somewhere in one of the future books the mystery of their origins gets explained. But for now, I’ll keep guessing.

It’s not secret I am totally loving this series. I know in the near future I’ll have the last book in hand and it will be a sad day for me. This world Colleen Gleason created has me so excited. So many unexpected twist and mysteries to discover as they unfold. I want it to go on forever. One thing I do not recommend is reading this series out of order or individually. While each book is about each of the five guys from the past, they also build on each other. Reading them out of order may be confusing. So make sure to start from the beginning.
Note: The Heroes of New Vegas was formerly written as Joss Ware, and known as The Envy Chronicles which is where I first read this book.
