Book Description

For the children of Burke’s Hollow Middle School, the end of the world came during first period. On a cold, rainy morning, the dead returned to life. Now, the children have lost their families and friends, they’ve been trapped inside the school for weeks, and there are only a handful of adults left to keep the peace. But when a child’s suicide spurs two teachers and a troubled parent to leave in search of supplies, the children find themselves alone, facing something even worse than the dead. After discovering that a teacher has kidnapped a fellow student, two boys, Ian and David, take control of the school in particularly bloody fashion. As the children struggle to survive on their own, tragedy and religious mania will threaten to tear everything apart.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Chilling read June 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this, but found some of the story elements to be quite disturbing and reminiscent of the story lord of the flies by William Golding.

If you didn't enjoy reading the lord of the flies, then you probably should skip reading this story.

I did see some grammatical errors in the story, but they didn't detract from the story and shouldn't cause any issues with understanding the plot of the story.

I'm going to be watching for other stories by this author with great interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! March 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The plot in this book is unlike so many others in this genre. It's a tense ride, very real and very raw. It's so realistic, and the focus is on what would really happen...not a fantasy where everything ends how it should in a fairy tale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Showed a lot of promise June 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I edited my previous review to add more details after thinking about the story.

There is some good in this and some bad. It's an entertaining book to say the least. But the pacing needs work. The prologue was exciting and kept me at the edge of my seat. But unfortunately, that was the climax of the book. Aside from the character that goes on the supply run, the rest of the novel centers around middle school aged survivors stuck at their school. The kids are cold, hungry, and mentally defeated realizing they might be the only people left in the world. It's bleak, nihilistic, and serves as the central location from the story. If the characters were little more dynamic and convincing, it might have made for a better story. The story jumps from the character on the supply run, to Ian, to Dana's journal, and David. Robert and Dana were the most interesting characters but they were under used. I also feel that the ending came abruptly and there was no real resolution, which I thought was a problem. After thinking about it for a little while, I realized that this ending, despite how disappointed I was, was the only ending a story like this could have and kept with the theme of the story. I really did enjoy it though so my original three stars has been updated to four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the squeamish! April 14, 2014
By Whosatm

Be warned, there is much brutality and gruesome imagery. If you can handle that, it is an outstanding story with never a dull moment. As the story progresses you see sanity dwindle and realize the true monsters are the ones who are alive. The ending was a bit weak and there were a few editing flaws, but still very much worthy of five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story April 1, 2014
By Jason

Quite a few typos but an interesting story. This story brings out another perspective of a zombie apocalypse. Most stories like this portray children as helpless, although this author opens the readers eyes to what children can be capable of or subjected to when all goes to hell

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good zombie read. Good plot. On the downside, cliffhangers can hang a little long, and there's a lot of detailed descriptions of blood, snot, and other gook. But still, what's a zombie story without that?

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the $2. June 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Heard about this book on Reddit, and saw that it was free...when I got here the price was back up to $2. I figured I'd give it a shot anyway, and I am glad that I did. It's a very entertaining read, and while I think the characters could have been a bit more fleshed out - it was kind of difficult to care about them - I still couldn't put it down. The story itself is very good, and well worth your two bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story April 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say, they say "never judge a book by its cover", but as you can plainly see, this cover screams "read me!!" Truly an awesome story. Gruesome, well written and horrid. It's like watching a car wreck as you drive by, you crank your neck hoping to see something grotesque, but thankful it isn't you in that wreck. James makes you feel like you're there yourself, fighting alongside the characters for survival. I hope this author writes another story. I will be standing in the metaphorical line, to grab whatever he's written!
