Book Description

16 Sep 2011
The dead walk. Now the real battle for Seattle has begun. When a gas leak causes the National Guard to forcibly evacuate the neighborhood, Lester isn't going anywhere. The former dope pusher has a new clientele... the kind that require him to deal lead instead of drugs. Mike, a newspaper reporter, suspects a conspiracy lies behind the chaos. He's driven to find the truth, even if it means dragging his beautiful co-worker into danger. Kate has a dark secret: she's a budding young serial killer. As society collapses, her skill in dealing death may be the one thing that can keep her alive. These survivors, along with others, are drawn together in their quest to find not only the truth behind the spreading apocalypse, but also to escape the madness they face at every turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best zombie books 10 Jan 2010
This is a wonderful story with 4 completely different sets of people struggling to survive as the full horror of what's happening to their city slowly unfolds around them.

Each group reacts in their own way and I'm sure everyone could easily identify with at least one of them.

This book is very well written, very enjoyable and I have no hesitation in recommending this to all fans of the genre.

A very strong five out of five.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 12 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, that's pretty much what i thought after finishing this.
The writing is superb, descriptive and can be blood thirsty at times.
This book cover the start of a zombie plaque from the first one onwards, it follows several sets of survivors as the the situation slowly dawns on them. We see them making a transition from regular every day life to a zombie survival situation.
The characters thoughts and actions keep you reading and gives them depth. Even the characters that are only in for a short time get the same treatment.
It makes you think "what would i do?" as you get more and more drawn into the story.
This is one book i will be reading again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining story and well written 6 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first book I've read about the undead and I'll certainly not be rejecting any more recommendations. I really enjoyed the story and by the end of the book, I couldn't put it down. I can't put my finger on why I've gone for 4 stars, rather than 5 but there was something not quite perfect for me - maybe it was slightly too long? The thing that amazed me was that there are a couple of characters you really shouldn't be cheering for and yet, ultimately, I found myself on their side(s).

Give it a go!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the zombie genre 4 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In a genre already saturated, I found this to be one of the best.
Extremely well written, the characters were colourful and varied with their own backgrounds in the story.
The depiction of the outbreak of the illness was well presented with a scientist using an untested cancer drug.
This is highly recommended book to fans of the horror genre. Read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ...... Ok 17 Jun 2012
By Nev
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An average story in my opinion, the characters are reasonably well fleshed out, but lack depth, I can't say I found myself caring one way or the other if they survive. There are a few holes in the plot and one or two events that are just too convenient. I finished the story but purely because I paid for it, I will not be purchasing the next chapter.

All that said, for the price (1.99) I was not too disappointed, it killed a few hours and the writer can work well with words, you can "see" the world he is drawing you into, but it's not quite there yet. I have read worse at a higher price.
