Clever, fast-moving, and surprising, this third entry in the series shows that it's lost none of its mojo. Humor and horror don't always mix well, but this action-packed sci-fi satire hits all the right notes in poking fun at monster-movie silliness. Otto and Sheed are a great team in The Last Chance for Logan County, ready to battle sharp-toothed frogs, capitalist zombies, and Lovecraftian terrors. For all the goofiness, though, author Lamar Giles provides some heartwarming scenes in which the boys worry about being split up and forced to leave the county, which disturbs them more than the zombies do.
