Format: Kindle Edition
Another brilliant zombie-action read and I loved the longer length novel to get completely immersed in. After reading many zombie books this year it was also a refreshing change to read another great plot twist on the bio warfare and revenge idea; it was quite different. Excellent well crafted plot, nicely in-depth and detailed to keep it really believable.

Super fast paced at every chapter pulling you along so you wont want to stop reading; its like you are part of the group.

Strong relatable characters with perfect supporting characters. I thought Natalie and Gary were fab and I so wanted to hit Tyler; what a horrible human being...signs of good writer when it brings out strong emotions of the reader.

Loved the twist on the possible cure being simply herbal, rather than just man-made chemicals good old mother nature!

I would have liked to see a bit more zombie horror action and hardships as well as the fast paced read...but that's just me being a complete zombie gore-aholic.

Fab suspenseful twist at the end but I was disappointed it was finished...I could have kept reading more....sigh...as I was enjoying it so much! I would love a book 2 and see more of Gary, Natalie and Amanda....hint....hint!

Another great book to add to any zombie enthusiast library. Off to collect my zombie survival kit and start prepping.

Filled with twists and turns, mystery and suspense, The Z Contingency by W I Eganson is a well written book by an author who is definitely going to be making a lot of noise in the industry. The writer manages to keep our interest frfom page o page and hit us with action, suspense and thrills at the same time. It was a fun and enjoyable read.

An entertaining read with interesting characters that explores what might happen when a virus starts spreading through the population, “zombifying” the people it infects. I enjoyed the reference to CDC's disaster preparedness program and the intrigue of the secret government organization. Some of the zombie apocalypse prepper group characters kept it on the lighter side, which I found appealing.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. It had a good main plot and subplots, as well as several interesting characters. Not your typical blood-and-gore zombie story.

4.0 out of 5 stars How it all would start 7 April 2014
By Sunshine Somerville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Most zombie tales are told from the perspectives of everyday people and you never have any idea how the zombie virus actually started. Here, everything starts at the CDC and a clandestine government agency. How the virus comes into existence is actually the focus of the story. Once things get out of control – and of course they do – THEN you meet ordinary people who have to survive in the chaos that follows.
I really enjoyed the more scientific approach this book took. I believed that the author had done adequate research. Also, there were early questions of right and wrong and the moral complexities that would be involved here, adding some thoughtfulness without being too weighty. And it was a relief to be able to relate to the characters of Simon, Gary, and Natalie especially. The fact that the book is broken up by chapters with the “bad guy’s” perspective is interesting too, and these parts kept the tension going while also giving the reader insight the “good guys” didn’t have as they tried to stop the spread of the virus.
There were a few scenes that felt a bit forced, such as when Simon and Gary encounter rednecks and Simon kills them…which just kind of happens and they never look back. Also, the long ago college love-triangle element I didn’t think needed to be there at all, and sudden discussions about it in the midst of serious situations didn’t fit very well.
BUT, overall, I liked the pacing, the character development, and the way the story unfolded. The zombies were believable without being outlandish, and the gore elements were humanized so that this wasn’t just some fun romp of killing the undead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mentally stimulating, fun, action packed zombie apocalypse read 15 Dec. 2013
By amazon reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This has been a fun book. That might seem strange to say about a zombie apocalypse story but the blend of characters; a couple of C.D.C. virus researchers, a single CIA agent and a healthy band of zombie apocalypse Preppers all combining their efforts to find a cure while fighting off zombies made for a mentally stimulating, action packed read.

I read the first few chapters or so free online and I had to buy the book to finish. The story and the characters are engaging and it really keeps you interested. I'm curious as heck about the special plant in the woods with the healing properties! What is it?! Can't wait to find out!

As I am not a believer in the supernatural, this take on the Zombie phenomenon is far more realistic than is typical. I enjoyed the story and it was an easy read.
