- Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest. It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are fast, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.
Now I've read a lot of the negative reviews about this and while what they say is true, it's a post apocalyptic Zombie book so it's not going to be all flowers and roses. It's going to be brutal, it's going to portray people and indeed the military harsh, but if times of strife and war have any indication, a lot of this is how most people would see things. During bad times, bad people will do extremely bad things. I didn't see anything too bad but that's just me. It's going to be a harsh world so bear that in mind when starting it!
Other than that, it's a good Zombie tale and one that grabbed me. I liked all the characters, yes, even the bad ones because they were all so well written. I enjoyed the plot too. It's fast paced and intense and I flew through the book! It's a story of survival, a story of people showing their true colours and one of heartache and pain. I am so glad I have book 2 to jump into because I need to see what happens next.
Basil Sands was excellent. I had no problem following who was talking. He had plenty of different tones and accents and he was clear and concise.
