Survive the infection! Survive the Infected!

A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried. People are frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious.

Zed needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride and heads to his mom’s house for a lunch of begging, again.

But something is wrong. There’s blood in the foyer. His mother’s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed’s stepdad, Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan’s yellow teeth tear at Zed’s arm but Zed grabs a knife and stabs Dan, thirty-seven times, or so the police later say.

With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skeleton of plot light on story content 7 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is fast paced from page 1, mainly due to the fact that's its all action with no character development or scene setting. It's not exactly terrible writing and I wasn't expecting a challenging literary experience but there is nothing to engage. If you are going to write yet another Zombie novel and you want to tempt a reader to purchase the next instalment after reading the free download, you have to do better that trot out this kind of predictable stuff. Nothing original and It isn't a complete novel; more of a preface. The final paragraph is a sales pitch from the author but I'm sorry, it didn't work. Based on the style and content of Zero Day book 1, I don't care what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whilst scanning for my next read, i came upon this book. With no great expectations, but with no complaints as it was free, i started reading. Almost straight away i became engrossed. The book catapulted me into buying the rest. In summary all I can say is that the series is great. A real roller-coaster ride. Thanks Bobby, keep 'em coming

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Burn - Zero Day 18 April 2014

I first thought - another post apocalypse novel, but when I got into it I was really surprised. It was so good and I had to buy the next three books. A great read.

First off, I know glowing reviews of kindle books may be suspect - so please check my profile. I am a fairly prolific reviewer, and this is my first ever review of a self published book - in large part because I don't like bashing new authors, and I've found so few worthy of a good review. I read constantly, and review for several sites. The largest part of my disposable income goes on books, so when I say something is among the best I have ever read, it is facing some competition. I won't go as far as to say this is the very best - I still class Richard Matheson's Omega Man as the best post apocalyptic fiction ever, and The Walking Dead, the original series as close second, but this is definitely up there. I estimate that I read 7 - 10 books per week, but this figure includes children's books ( I home educate my sons).

Zombie books right now are coming out in hordes. As several reviewers have commented genre has been done to death, and while there are some excellent books out there, all too many have left me bored to death as well. Anyone can write slash and bash, blood and brains with a few plucky survivors holed up in what they hope is safe location - but of course it never it is. Adair however has breathed new life into the genre with a completely novel approach to the genre and the character development of a very seasoned author with a rare gift.

Adair's main hero becomes infected early on, and my first thoughts were "Oh No - Not another Hatred". Thankfully I kept reading, because this turned out to be a completely unique twist as the virus in Adair's books has several shades of grey in between the black and white of zombie and human.

5.0 out of 5 stars thrilling storyline 6 April 2014
By dan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would give this rating because the storyline always keeps you guessing despite what everybody already knows about "zombie lore" this books puts a interesting twist to it. Also the tension and panic in the encounters with infected from the main protagonist keeps you on the edge. Would recommend this to anyone who likes the walking dead series.
