Product Description

Product Description

A MYSTERIOUS CONTAGION. MASS HYSTERIA. SUDDEN DEATH.

And a warning that would come all too late . . .

Forest Peak, California. Fourth of July. Sheriff Danielle Adelman, a troubled war veteran, thinks she has all the problems she can handle in this all-American town after her kid sister runs away from home. But when a disease-stricken horde of panicked refugees fleeing the fall of Los Angeles swarms her small mountain community, Danny realizes her problems have only just begun—starting with what might very well be the end of the world. Danny thought she had seen humanity at its worst in war-torn Iraq, but nothing could prepare her for the remorseless struggle to survive in a dying world being overrun by the reanimated dead and men turned monster. Obsessed with finding her missing sister against all odds, Danny’s epic and dangerous journey across the California desert will challenge her spirit . . . and bring her to the precipice of sanity itself. . . .

Filled with adventurous human drama—and shocking inhuman horror—Rise Again marks a vivid and powerful fiction debut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply put this is a very good read 9 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The books starts really well building up the main characters and the plot line. Ben has invested a lot of energy with this and it does pay off as when the characters find themselves in some very tricky situations, I found it better to understand the reasoning behind their choices.

There is one scene in the book before the Z's become fully aggresive he describes the living corraling them and they follow like sheep. Well written and a great scene.

He introduces a sinister organisation that I will say nothing about but provides a very interesting sub-plot to the main event.

All the characters in the book are well thought out and the situations believable.

The only thing preventing me giving this book 5 stars as a rating is that I felt it seemed rushed at the conclusion. This is a shame, but doesn't spoil the book too much.

I will not say too much about the ending, but let's hope this promising author delivers more books abuot my favourite bad guys...

In summary, thank you for a great read and I hope to see more of your work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 19 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very well written book with good editing, which is refreshing. There are strong characters and situations and things developed well. This is a zombie book of course and the outbreak and the breakdown of civilisation were interesting and original, the zombie development was interesting. The book took a trip from a small town across the country and we get to see how things are going in a big city. I felt that this book was definitely worth the money and I would also definitely buy more by this author. I find it a shame that there aren't more reviews for this book and that more people haven't read it/commented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise again 20 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
Great book, a must for zombie fans no doubt about it. Fast paced with a twist. Also has a great personal view of the initial infection which seems to be missing from many Zombie titles. I challenge you to put this book down once started, Iam very particular about the titles I read but no worries here, a good all rounder

5.0 out of 5 stars Reanimates the Zombie Genre 9 Aug 2011
By Rachel VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hands down the best Zombie novel I've read this year, easily in the top ten for overall best novel of the year. And I've read a fair few good-uns.

First and foremost, this is a beautifully written, well paced, horrific adventure novel. So much so, it feels like the work of a far more experienced writer. It is the quality of the narrative and the deft handling of the emotion of this story that gives it its brilliance. Some recent gems of the genre like Rhiannon Frater's 'As the World Dies' and Jonathan Maberry's 'Patient Zero' succeed because of the quality of the idea realised through average-to-good storytelling. 'Rise Again' is a stonkingly good, cleverly plotted, deftly handled, adrenaline soaked, quality read that happens to have zombies.

'Rise Again' is different from many other zombie novels out there due to the author's investment in ratcheting up the tenison as a small town and then society as we knows it goes to hell. Don't get me wrong, it's not a slow book at all. It fairly thrums along right from the start but it is first and foremost quality character development that drives this tale. By the time the mayhem really hits its relentless stride, you are so invested in the characters and the set up that your heart sits firmly in your mouth for the rest of the book. And there really is precious little let up of tension throughout. This is intelligent, original horror.

Danny Adelman, the main character is the town's sheriff. She has completed three tours of Iraq, suffered life altering injuries and come back home changed. Everyone notices it, but no one says it. Friends, family all find her hard work and difficult and she alienates them all, incapable of connecting with others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh take on the zombie genre! 17 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book! As standard for the zombie thriller a strange virus/infection is afoot causing the dead to rise, however the thing that intrested me about this book was the way in which the author describes the spread of the virus- people running mad and then dropping dead...or so it would seem...I thought he manages a really clever take on this idea. I couldn't put it down.

The main character Danny is an Iraq vet turned small town Sheriff, she's hard to like at the start by by the end I was rooting for her.

I have since read an interview with Ben Tripp saying he is working on a sequel, I have to say I am very excited!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking read! 23 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. As other reviewers have said, it is really well written, which definitely makes a change for a zombie book. It never gets too bogged down in the back story, but you are given enough information to understand the choices that the main characters make.
There is plenty of zombie gore to keep fans interested, but it also describes situations very well and doesn't go too overboard with the escapes and survival scenarios.
It has excitement in spades and is a fairly lengthy story so you don't feel short changed either. I loved the ending - it made me want to know what happened next and at the same time not want a sequel to ruin the brilliant ending!
Read this book - you won't regret it!
