    This book is amazing!! I got hooked on Jango in the first book, and the author introduced even more complex characters in the second book. It's not often that a sequel is better than the original, but I have to say that I enjoyed "Jango's Anthem" even more than the first book (and I absolutely loved "The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies").Nye has a unique writing style that sucks you into his stories, and you feel like you have to keep turning pages (or in my case, clicking the ">" arrow on my Kindle). His characters are so damaged yet so likeable at the same time. Not only does Nye make you care about his characters, but he has a great sense of humor that makes you smile even during the darkest points in the story. Bonus: there's a great idea for a post-apocalyptic recipe in this book: beef stew using jerky and canned vegetables - very clever! If you're looking for a zombie novel with gore, violence, and a little heart, then this is the book for you! But I also highly recommend the first book, "The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies."

    First things first, I received a free copy of this title from the author. While I was not obligated to write a review for this novella in return, I felt honored to do so. Jango is a broken man. He is also a man that you will not forget. Having survived a tragic childhood, Jango had long decided to exact vengeance upon the evil doers of the world and the zombie apocalypse conveniently provided him with the perfect opportunity for some pay back. At times brutal and uncompromising in his views, Jango sets out to find the exact cause of the zombie virus while helping others along the way. This action packed novella is not for young readers or the squeamish as it contains a great deal of violence, adult theme content (rape, torture) and brutality. Yet it also has it’s tender moments of love, friendship, and compassion.I recommend this novella to fans of combat action, zombie apocalypse, and horror genres. Note: This is the second in the series of the Jango Fighter. I had not read the first book but I did not have much trouble getting up to speed.

    This one is for the ladies! Zombie fiction isn’t just for guys, anymore. Cedric Nye is an equal-opportunity writer when it comes to the Zombie Fighter Jango series. His books are empowering, regardless of gender or even species. The previous novel was dedicated to victims of child abuse. This one is for “survivors” which perfectly fits this work of monster-mashing, mentally-intense art.Jango is a hero. But like all primo defenders of justice, he is broken. From the first book, The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies, we learn about his fractured mind. The mystery of the dog and the albino woman is well written. In the second book, Jango’s Anthem, we are privy to the final piece of his fragmented mind, and it’s a thing of beauty.This author killed it! (Pun intended.) Let me tell you what I liked about this book without spoiling the beastly brilliant plotline. The chapter called US and THEM was freaky-cool! It introduced Vanessa, my fave! If the TV show Walking Dead and the movie True Grit had a baby, it would be this mutated western. I love that it takes place in Arizona, my home. I adore Jango’s alpha-dog attitude and survival instincts. Yeah, he’s got more baggage than winter visitors that come to the Sonoran Desert, but he is strong enough to bear the burden of his past and all the bullshit in his future.I would like to thank the author for writing a highly entertaining series with equally powerful messages about personal identity, mental strength and surviving victimization from every type of monster, zombie or human. I’ve already suggested this book to my family and friends. I think ten zombies would agree that this book is badass beyond words or screeching moans.

    It's been a while since I read the first in the "Zombie Fighter Jango" series, so I'd forgotten how warped our hero Jango is, with his fragmented psyches of dog, albino woman, and the beast, as well as his own primary personality. Jango is the survivor of childhood abuse, and his need for revenge against the bad people of the world permeates this story, as it did the earlier one. However, Jango's story is written with a sick, twisted tongue-in-cheek humor that takes away a lot of the turmoil that could come with some a premise.Jango takes out zombies and bad guys alike with anything at his disposal - knife, gun, diesel fuel, duct tape. In fact, he's the zen-master of duct tape, using it to strap a fileted human carcass on the top of his car as chum for the zombies, crafting a toilet paper flower chain, even duct taping a strip of his scalp back to his head. Yup, Jango's a regular MacGyver here, and the use of humor, albeit black, is very appropriate."Jango" was a fun read, and I'd recommend it to fans of the genre.

    Jango's Anthem is the second novel in the Zombie Fighter Jango series. Like any popular genre, post apocalyptic zombie stories mean different things to different people. Sometimes fans enjoy the mindless carnage aspect of novels featuring the undead, or maybe it is the every man for them self scenarios presented in end of the world set ups. In Jango's Anthem we catch a glimpse of all of the above mentioned staples of the zombie sub-genre, however there are many things that separate it from popular fiction. For starters this story is for all of the under dogs of society who are ridiculed or misunderstood in the world. The main protagonist comes from a upbringing fueled with abuse, the way he is handled is authentic and comes off true to those who have suffered similar kinds of trauma. There is also a supporting cast member who represents a certain minority who often goes overlooked in popular media. While I am sure there will be those who favor different aspects of this novel, in my eyes the zombie action is just window dressing over the real empowering message featured in the Zombie Fighter Jango story. The real story in my eyes is how damaged one can become after suffering the worst kinds of domestic abuse. The zombies and the bandits are just targets for Jango to unleash his anger upon. That is why he sees himself forever destined to walk on a apocalyptic road that will lead to his death. He is like a wild fiery blaze that will eventually burn itself out after it's consumed everything within it's reach. However despite all of those hardships on his soul, Jango remains a good person and refuses to fall in the footsteps that his abusers laid before him. He sees his bloodline cursed and went out of his way to make sure his ancestry ends with him. While he is alive he goes out of his way to save those who need his help, stopping those who take advantage and oppress others. Reading the Zombie Fighter Jango series has been incredibly difficult for me. Even though each of the books are a incredibly fast read, I had to put it down more times then I thought I would. As someone who has had loved ones who suffered abuse and as someone who has been abused it is hard to read about Jango's past. Yet I continue to read it because there is a lot of good I am to take from the story as well. I applaud author Cedric Nye for telling this story because it shows people like us that we aren't alone. It is easy to get lost in your own pain and fool yourself into thinking you are alone in your suffering. However it is important to hear a message like this that isn't on some generics PSA announcement. It is necessary for a story like Zombie Fighter Jango to come along and tell us survivors that we don't have to let the abuse we suffered be the end of us. We have to keep fighting onward like Jango does.At least that is the message I am taking from Cedric Nye. Real abuse like this seems like a taboo subject in media. All too often our main protagonist has the same generic flaws as every other fictional character. Either he or she is a struggling parent, isn't popular among their peers, or is some other boring archetype we've seen rinsed, washed, and repeated a million times in media. It was nice to see that Jango wasn't any of these things, he was a very realistic character who is suffering through some very real world problems. We get to explore things that most media seems to be afraid to explore. Which is a shame when you think about it, because it is similar to pretending the problem doesn't exist. We do find out that he has some kind of special abilities, however this is a novel featuring zombies and it doesn't take away from the characteristics I was admiring earlier. I read this book among some good friends in a buddy read, I also had the honor of having author Cedric Nye participate in the buddy read. I feel very honored to have been part of this group read and I'm thankful for all of the discussions we've had. Thank you Cedric Nye for having the courage to write about something like this. You are touching those who have been fighting this battle alone for their entire lives. I don't go out of my way to call people "heroes" too often, but you are definitely my definition of one.

    Here's the thing, I don't read zombie apocalypse stories. Don't get me wrong, I love zombie movies - 28 Days/Months/Eons Later, Night of the Living Dead, Planet Terror, the George Romero stuff - but jumping Jesus, ever since people started self-publishing every thought that popped into their heads we've been bombarded with played-out zombie stories. I've read a few and have been greatly disappointed. BUT I LOVE THESE JANGO STORIES!Cedric Nye brings a much needed breath of fresh air to the genre. This story is gritty and raw, and that might bother some people. But life is gritty and raw. Our planet is in fact inhabited by... "Twists" as Nye so eloquently describes evil people. I firmly believe that the moment our fragile society begins to crumble, these "Twists" will emerge from their dark corners and start taking advantage of the unsuspecting and unprepared people who remain.What really makes this read enjoyable is the way Jango - hardly your everyday protagonist - takes sweet, righteous revenge on these douche-receptors that we're normally forced to share our air with. Nye's story is original and in-your-face. It's not just a zombie story, it forces the reader to take a hard look at the reality of things that make us uncomfortable, but that shouldn't be ignored.If you like zombie stories, I'm pretty sure this will become one of your favorites. If you used to like zombie stories, but got sick of them like I did, you will probably be surprised by the Jango series. If you just like to read messed up stuff that's well-written and just plain enjoyable, zombies or no zombies, I think you'll find this to be satisfying as well.

    Loved the first book in this series and just didn't get a chance to read the follow-up right away. Have to say, it was everything that was great about the first book and then some. The author does a few things in this installment that just took straight up balls to do and I commend him for it. If you don't love this character you should see a cardiologist and have your heart checked.

    Jango was out for revenge for Sonja s death in this book, but he never lost sight of needing to protect the people, or dogs, that were being badly treated. This he did this several times throughout this book but in each case he tried to help the people get some power back by showing them how to get revenge on the men hurting them.I liked this in Jango s character, it made him into a man you could like and admire, even when faced with how unstable he could be. Vanessa , I really liked her, how she became stronger, more able to fight, and that she had jango s back, even if that just meant in one instance, not leaving his gun behind.It was another very graphically violent book, but that was good, and I liked how he became known as Zombie Fighter Jango, that was just cool and he totally deserves the name. Even if he kills some zombies while they are still alive!

    So Jango's Anthem picks up right where The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies lets up. I gave the first book of this series 4 stars and this book 5 stars. together I give this series a 9/10 rating. (why not 10/10? only because I would have done some things differently if I was Jango.) just like in the first book this is some non-stop zombie killing a$$ whoppen two tote hang'n gun slinging zombie bit(h slapping blood and guts chewing throat slitting intestine chopping fun. what Jango goes through to do what he believes is.right makes him that much more enjoyable. Cedric paints a good story. its a well worth read if you were to ask me.

    I enjoyed every moment of this. Cedric Nye has a writing style that keeps me turning the pages. What I like most is that he puts so much of himself into his stories. His stories have heart. I love the inclusion of a transgender character and I even learnt some new uses for Duct tape LOL. I eagerly await the next book in the series. Cedric Nye could write a shopping list and make it interesting.

    I loved how this story was about saving people and acceptance of others. I found myself thinking though throughout this story what the actual plot or goal of the story was. In the end I figured it out and I guess I knew the whole time. Thanks for the different take on the z-apoc and the comedy throughout!!

    Well if I thought book one was violent then this one cranks it up another notch. We find our man Jango still on the Apocalypse Road coming across goobers of both the dead & the living variety & dealing with them in his own unique style.Now Jango maybe a very very violent man, but he also believes in helping people that are in trouble providing they don't screw him over & in this book he does help a lot of people who are victims of the lawlessness after the zombie outbreak. One such victim touches Jango in a way he never expected would ever happen again, especially after what happened the last time he got close to someone, & this almost puts a human face to Jango.There is so much more I'd like to add to this review, but to do so would spoil the book for anyone that hasn't read it yet so get it, read it & I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Fun times through large scale destruction of zombies, undead and otherwise! Mr. Nye follows his first book with a new episode in the adventures of Jango, zombie destroyer extraordinaire, at times demented, at times out of control, but always a life saver for those who need it most. Jango is a modern times flawed hero with all the darkness and virtues paradoxes we come to expect from them (e.g. Batman, etc). The book is well written and the action practically non stop. The tragic situations depicted are not overburdened with doom and gloom and the occasional touch of humor keeps the whole compelling and enjoyable.Highly recommended.

    Contains SpoilersWhat can you really say about a book you've spent more time thinking about than reading? One thing is for certain, "Jango's Anthem" is a incredible story about a survivor, the very people Mr. Nye dedicated the book to. On the surface you have Jango obliterating zombies and destroying anyone who may wish him harm. He rescues woman, children and animals and teaches each to care for themselves. I like to think that they are the chorus singing Jango's Anthem. I encourage anyone who reads this book to look deeper into the complexity of the world Mr. Nye has created. Everything is and isn't as it seems on the Apocalypse Road.

    The second part of Jango's story, and like the first, it's brutal and gritty. Though there's more than just random violence at work here.Some of it is for extra effect, but most of the blood and gore actually serves a purpose. It's a survival tool and helps our zombie fighter in his quest for vengeance.There's hope as well, compassion and kindness serving as the last few pockets of resistance against the overwhelming hordes of the undead.Definitely a good sequel and I look forward to the next installment in the series.Koen

    Jango rocks!!This book is not your average zombie apocalypse book. The author takes you into the mind of a man, Jango, and shows you what makes him the zombie fighter. Jango not only fights zombies he fights evil and injustice. A definite page turner. I am off to read the next book in the series.

    Good read that needs a structural editor. The shifting PoV can be, at times, confusing. Still a solid zombie tale.
