The story is fast-paced story with great action, tension, and great characters.

Well, we get to see what happens to him in this book and it's just as good as the first.

This is a novella that is a must read between the first and second book in the series.

This is a follow-up to Knight's "The Gathering Dead," Gartrell's story after he gets left behind on a mission in NYC. It's a great short story - pulls you right in, action-packed and realistic (considering the theme), a real page turner. As usual, there's a powerful, and at least for me, unexpected ending. I really enjoy Knight's style - I've enjoyed all of his stories and would heartily recommend this one.

Keith Blackmore said it all in his review. This was an awsome addition to the story. Much added depth to the First Sergeant. Powerful ending. A must read!

Knight is breathing new life into a tired subgenre. What I like about "Left With The Dead" and "The Gathering Dead," is that there aren't any stupid characters doing stupid things, where the reader is hoping beyond hope that the zombies get them sooner rather than later. The characters here are well drawn, intelligent, and doing whatever they can to survive the hordes of the dead.

Knight's writing is clean, meticulously crafted, and he knows how to write combat sequences. The ever increasing tension throughout had me hoping beyond hope that the characters would make it to the end of the book. There are instances when I cringed, and not because of a character's predictable or bad decision, but because the characters herein are making all the *right* decisions, and *still* defecation impacts the rotary oscillator.

I haven't felt the same rush since watching "Aliens."

I can't say anything more about this particular novella except, if you enjoyed the first Gathering Dead book, then this is an addition that raises an already high bar. And for the price, you're robbing the walking dead.

Very much recommended.

I am really enjoying this book. I finished The Gathering Dead in about 2 or 3 days. I am not a heavy reader but I just could not stop reading once I got started. The only book that hooked me like these in the last couple years was The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I hope to see more additions to this series in the near future!

Best $1.99 I've spent in awhile. This novella is a continuation of The Gathering Dead. It follows one man who is now alone and scarcely armed in the zombie infested New York City.

I felt this book (novella) was even better than the Gathering Dead. It had non-stop action, and quite the twist at the end. I was rooting for the character the entire way through, staying up late to finish it.

Mr. Knight has once again entertained me and I highly suggest his work to anyone who likes zombies.

This novella is a fantastic addition to The Gathering Dead story. It tells the story of Sergeant David Gartrell who is separated from his crew in the first book. Non stop action and great story telling makes this novella well worth you time and money! Highly recommend.

Picking up when Gartrell split off from Major McDaniels this novella not only continues the crazy fast pace of "The Gathering Dead" but manages to amp it up faster. Gartrell is alive and alone in the near dead New York city and now has to find a way out alive. Picking up two survivors Gartrell looks for an impossible escape. If you have read "The Gathering Dead" then you better read this one right away!

Amazing follow-up to "The Gathering Dead."

Almost broke my kindle in half I was clenching it so hard.

If you like zombie books or simply enjoy any form of action horror Stephen Knight has this genre figured out.
