The book starts with Mace and his partner Jade. They are a couple who are also bounty hunters out on a run to catch a guy with a purple mohawk who is suppose to be getting of a train in a BART station in San Francisco. Jade is at the top of the station in case Mace misses him and Mace is waiting below for him to get off the train.
Meanwhile, on the train itself, there is a foreign man with a vase of flowers and a pretty red balloon with a strange symbol on it. He is sweating and drawing attention although most of it is all smiles, thinking he is nervous about his upcoming romantic encounter. One gang banger though is suspicious because he had heard on the news earlier that several terrorist plots were stopped in NYC that involved the same strange symbol on the balloon so he is going to be a hero and stop the guy. He goes in for the kill - unfortunately, the terrorist pops the balloon, releasing the poison, everyone on the train dies, and turns into rage filled killers.
Mace sees the purple mohawk guy and is going in to arrest him when he hears all the screams - of course, purple hair guy gets eaten before Mace can get to him and all turns to chaos. Mace runs from the station to meet up with Jade and meets up with the first of the survivors that he gathers along the run to safety. Along the way, they find out that they have the "cure" and go to a hospital to manufacture more to share with others. Several characters I wanted to backhand and feed them to the infected myself - Mace is a better person than I am because I would have shoved them off the bus...Read more ›
From a technical viewpoint, the book was reasonably well written, minimum grammatical and spelling errors which can be so distracting and seems to be prevalent in self published books lately. From a stylistic point of view, the story starts out a little slowly, speeds up nicely, reveals secrets regularly and then builds to a crescendo. So far, so good. The problem however, is that somewhere, somehow, the story loses it's way and veers sharply into the realms of just plain stupid. I know this is a zombie story and so the reader should park their common sense at page one and leave it there, but still, I like my stories to have a little bit of internal consistency. Characters act in inexplicable ways, change their behaviour for no reason and plot devices are introduced that are so contrived it's almost painful to read.
Don't get me wrong, it's a good rainy afternoon filler, but compared to some of the other offerings in the genre it was a little disappointing.
Mace sees what is happening, runs to Jade, and gets out of dodge pronto. They make it safely home where they grab what provisions they can carry along with some weapons. Once they feel that they can leave safely they make a run to try and save those they hold near and dear. One of their loved ones is Father McCann. Upon entering the church to save him they find him hiding in the attic clutching a box. He tells them that the box holds 6 syringes of what is to be believed an antidote to the horrifying virus. It's agreed upon that they would get to a hospital located just out of the city to try and create enough doses of the antidote that can be given to every survivor left in the country-at least that is their goal. Along the way they pick up as many survivors as they can and finally make it to the hospital. Once there they work hard not only on this cure but also in making the building the safest haven as they can but as with any diverse group of people problems arise.
I don't want to give too much of the plot away so I'll just say this is a very good zombie story. Mr. Williams sucked me in from the get go.Read more ›
