Book Review: Dead Meat, Day 9
Hope you’re having a great week. Mine has been extremely chaotic, but I have next Monday and Tuesday off, so I am super excited to have some extra time for rest and relaxation. Thank goodness!
Anywho, back to the post at hand.
The moment has finally come. That’s right, today I’m reviewing Dead Meat, Day 9 by Nick Clausen, the final in the series!
Now, while Day 8 didn’t completely blow me away, I was really eager to finish out this series. You see, I’m not a long series person. Usually around book 5 in a series my interest will start to wane until I just drop the series. It hasn’t happened with Dead Meat, but there is some happiness that the series is over so I can move on to different books and series. Gotta change that scenery, ya know?
Before we start the review, I have to mention that this entire series is still available in ebook form for just 99 cents (9 books, that’s bananas!). To check out this hellishly good deal, click here.
All right folks, let’s get this party started!

The finale to the Dead Meat series has been a long time coming, and I was so excited to finish this series out. While I enjoyed this conclusion, I was hoping for just a little bit more out of it.
A cure has been established, but now our ragtag heroes have to find a way to spread it and stop the US from nuking Europe with little time. Can they find a way, or will Europe be decimated?
The stakes were very high in this novel, the action scenes were really great, and the sense or urgency definitely sped things along. That being said, overall it felt a bit rushed and short to me. I felt like this novel needed a little more meat on the bone, more of that great epic struggle that we’ve seen up until now. It diminished that sense of fulfillment you get when finishing a book in a blaze of glory.
Iver’s POV has been so important in previous books, but this time he didn’t have quite as much limelight. He stayed true to himself, but I would’ve liked to see a bit more of him. Dan and William as usual stole the show with their POV’s, which was fine by me. They’ve been my favorites throughout the series, and it was good to see them continue to support each other.
The writing as usual was really good and flowed seamlessly, and we did get an official ending to the series.
I’m really glad I gave this a shot, and if I wasn’t a fan of Clausen already, I sure am now. Can’t wait to see more from this author!
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
