John O'brien's series "A New World" has been at the top of my fav list since the very first book A New World: Chaos .

With each book, which picks up exactly where the previous book ends, he shows you a world forever changed and the trials and tribulations Jack Walker and the small group of survivors he brings together must face and overcome or adapt to and accept.

This is Book #5. In my opinion, the best book so far. YEAH, it shocked me too. ;) While not as much in the way of blood-n-guts, the back stories on several of the key--or soon to be key---characters helps you feel even more involved than you thought you would be this far into a series.

I was kind of hesitant going into this book. Only because I read in a post of John's that even he was ...uneasy...is what I believe he said about this book. Because of the exact thing that makes me say it's the best so far; the "pre-outbreak" back stories. Don't get me wrong...the action scenes against the night runners, marauders and every body who tried to hurt Jack or his family--extended or blood--was kicka**.

This still has some GOOD action, I just liked learning more of the history of the characters I feel for and hold dear.

*****BTW JOHN...still PI**ED and upset about....you know who...!!***** (I hate spoilers...almost broke my own rule)

I found out this book was being released sometime early..I mean EARLY!..on 7/21..I bought it at 3:02am EST and ended up staying up all night reading. Just finished and I sat down to write this.

EXCELLENT work John **applause**

I just hate that it is going to be a while before we see Book 6 out. I know this had to wear John out..

I cannot begin to express my surprise when I saw the new book from John obrien was available. I IMMEDIATLY purchased it. His series so far has been my absolute favorite in the post apoc genre. Other than Harry Potter, twilight series, and lord of the rings, this series is my absolute favorite. I don't know if John obrien will become as big as those aforementioned books authors but time will only tell. I tell you one thing; this series is just as mind consuming and attention grabbing as the big boys. It's real. It's descriptive. It's smart. It's funny. And it uses all of the toys of the trade that makes things fun.

This new book was great. Moved fast. Promised more to come and kept you on the edge of your seat. The increasing capabilities of the night runners are becoming a very big problem for the survivors of this hell on earth scenario. If you are into post apoc series where the action is more focused on a para military view point then this is the series for you. I tell you, I just don't think I can wait another minute for the next book to come out and this one hasn't even hardly been out for days yet. This series has the makings of a classic, time will only tell. I hope that once jack and his fellow survivors take care of the night runner problem close to home they will take the fight to the other cities and hopefully demolish the night runner problem all together. If I could make some suggestions, I think a scientist needs to be added in the series so the problem can be worked on from that vantage point also. Imagine this, the scientist captures a few night runners, figures out a bio weapon that can kill them and then gives it to jack to start bombing the hell out of the night runners.

This installment of the New World series gives us more insight into the main characters while still providing plenty of action, both with the night runners and new threats. Mr. O'Brien is growing into his skills as a writer quite nicely; this book shows that he has become comfortable with the story and the characters- comfort that shows in the smooth, vivid scenes and dialogue. My only criticism would be that the author needs to slow down and not rush to get the next book out- longer storylines would be greatly appreciated; these fairly short books are just a tease.
I'm waiting (sort of) patiently for the next installment.

I get more and more impressed with each book in this series, each one picks up right where the last left off and they don't skip a beat. I've said it before and I'll say it again, If you're a die hard fan of the "Pittsburgh" zombies-get over it and enter the world of the night runners!!! Much more exciting and entertaining than slow moving, moaning corpses. Can't wait til next book and see what the offspring of the night runners are like! Oh wait I'm buying it tonight hahaha!

Being a fan of apocalyptic and zombie fiction, Amazon recommended A New World: Chaos and I bit. Starting a new book and a new writer sometimes takes a while to get used to, but it didn't take long to warm up to and enjoy John O'Brien's style and charactors.

For years I have planned my future survival on mainstream zombie literature ;). Well, John O'Brien has turned my plans upside down. These infected are not your typical slow moving, stupid, rotting flesh zombies. They're fast, they're organized, they're smart and they're hungry- real hungry. They only have one weakness, but you'll have to read to find out what it is.

Not only is the story fast paced and action filled, it is at times laugh out loud funny. What I really like about the story is the twist the author gives on the virus that has caused the chaos in the first place. This is how I would imagine a zombie virus to be if it were to happen for real. Different effects and outcomes on different people not only add to the suspense but also begs the reader to wonder what the final outcome will be.

As a bonus, the author is engaging and responsive to his growing fan base. I highly recommend the "new world order" series.

This is the fifth installment of the series and I'm eagerly waiting for the next.
