From the Author

I hope you love reading my work as much as I enjoy writing it. It's been a pleasant surprise to experience the recent upturn in the popularity of zombie fiction--a genre that somehow gets overlooked, or even denigrated, at times. In the vast overabundance of literature involving creatures of the night--vampires, I'm looking at you here--I think there's a marker to be laid down in favor of this breed of fiction.

I think the post-apocalyptic genre, and the zombie sub-genre specifically, is indicative of a secret yearning. In a society full of people and technology and reality shows and tweets and blogs and constant information overload and ever-present presence everywhere, I think there is a buried longing for silence. For peace and quiet. For some piece of loneliness that can never truly be achieved in a society now so intertwined and interconnected.

There's something important in that longing, and if you're reading this, you understand it too. Happy reading, friends.

Fast pace, page turning, great details.
Independent Thinker
I will read the second book because I want to see where the author takes the story and main character.
Gunslinger
This is a fantastic story, with very well developed characters who you feel like you know by the end.

First I want to say that I highly recommend this book to zombie fans. It's a fast-paced, well-written page-turner. While it doesn't really break any new ground, it's a solid contribution to the genre that zed fans will appreciate. The main characters -- especially the lead -- actually have memorable personalities, and the setting at the beginning of the book is an interesting way to kick off the story. Bravo on both counts.

The concept is solid, the fight scenes are very descriptive without being overdone, and the author kept overt and gratuitous references to specific weapons noticeably absent which was appreciated by this reviewer.

The only drawback, besides a few minor grammar errors, was an ending that can only be described as cliche beyond belief. I was stunned that such an abrupt and poor excuse for a conclusion had been attached to an otherwise noteworthy novel. I didn't see it coming, but surprises like this you can keep. I don't want to put forth any spoilers, but suffice it to say the entire story gets flipped on its head on the last page or two. It was a letdown.

With that said, I still have to admit that the ride was worth it and I'm glad I read it. This is my first novel by this author, and I'm happy I found this book with the hope that others by him will be just as good... and with better endings.

**SPOILERS IN HERE**

I read a lot of zombie fiction, and there is a lot of bad stuff out there. Granted, this is far better than a lot of what I have read, but for some reason, I just couldn't connect with the main character. He seemed too unreal, with his whole movie star background. And having us constantly wait to find out what his famous line in his movie was is ridiculous. I haven't finished the book yet, have about thirty pages left, so I can't be sure the author ever does tell us what the dumb line is, but I imagine it'll be worked into the ending somehow.

All in all, I found this book to be too hard to believe. Yes, zombies are unreal in their own right, but this book just seemed to make it too easy for the main character. Stuck on a roof? Presto, helicopter will save you. Feeling bad about abandoning the ship? Don't feel bad, it ends up filled with zombies anyway so you made the right choice. Zombie plague is wiping out the country and who can save it? Our main man, who happens to have the inside scoop because of his wife, the scientist. Seriously, how many action movie heroes are married to genius scientists? It's just so far fetched. Oh, and one of your people gets bit on the arm? Let's chop it off with an ax, and less than an hour later the girl with the amputated arm is up and ready to rejoin the fight. It seems like Stumpy, I mean Sam, would be feeling too tired from all the blood loss to get up and join the team on a mile long walking expedition, but nope, she's fine.

Finally, the editing errors in this book grated on me. There weren't a lot, but the ones that were present were annoying as heck. Let me just say that I will feel no remorse as I "wave" good-bye to this book but I warn you, you might want to "waive" your right to read it.

I thought this was a fantastic book that kept me engaged and turning the page. I had a hard time putting it down because I just could not wait to find out what would happen next. It was very well written and just a great mystery/action book -- even if you aren't into zombie novels, you will like this one!

Having the main character wake up in an insane asylum certainly offers a differnt perspective, especially when he constantly questions whether the zombies are real or in his mind. However, that creativity becomes overshadowed by the cliches found in many other zombie novels: the amazing roof rescue, the government conspiracy, and - above all - the crazy Christian. Maybe the fact that so many zombie novelists can't be bothered to edit out the grammatical errors - another zombie cliche - is what made a decent Christian scientist go crazy in the first place! I will read the next book because the main character is so much fun, but I hope he adds some details we haven't already seen too many times.

I've been on a zombie apocalypse kick for awhile so thought I'd give this one a chance. I'm glad I did. Genuine moments of creepiness and tension, with plenty of gore to go around. I subtracted one star for the ambiguous ending [it was actually quite frustrating]. I also subtracted one star for all the distracting typos, of which there were lots. I hope the author starts proofreading better, and learns the difference between its and it's.

I really liked the beginning of this. It started out strong, I was excited to keep reading. And then, it happened. When the author introduced the woman, it started reading like a Lifetime Original movie right down to the part where the bad guy takes the time to explain himself instead of just killing everyone.

I am disappointed in the reviewers who lead me astray with their five stars. Are you friends of the author?

Was not impressed. The editing was shoddy and the 'twist' of this novel was something you could see before you left the first chapter. The ending was hasty and obviously done to hook the reader into buying the next novel. I will not be purchasing anymore of this series and will most likely pass on any other novels by Bryan James.
