Book Description

In the depths of the Amazon rain forest, an archaeologist makes an inexplicable discovery: ruins that predate all known human civilization and contain an artifact that will be the instrument of mankind's destruction.

The world's dead soon begin to rise from their graves and attack the living as an unstoppable foe. Although individually weak, their hordes are an unstoppable force; they soon overwhelm all of the major bastions of civilization in the world, leaving carnage and destruction in their wake.

As the survivors desperately fight for survival in a situation that they struggle to even grasp, four people from very different walks of life discover that they have inexplicably developed superhuman abilities. Knowing that they may be humanity's only hope for survival, they set out in search of other survivors. What they find is more bizarre than anything they could have ever expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different look at the zombie apocalypse April 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting and original take on the source of zombies. I liked the interaction amongst the survivors but I wish the author had not been so quick to kill off some of his most interesting characters. The story, unlike most zombies tales, is basically self-contained in this book but I would like to read more from this author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a lot more July 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interesting take on a zombie novel. I wouldn't necessarily say a good take on it though. I didn't see a lot of the twists coming but they were effective in keeping me entertained to see what the author had up his sleeved. There were a few things I didn't like one big one was that the zombie threat was almost an afterthought around 3/4 of the way through the book. It just became so easy for them to kill them (and everything) that there was no danger, no suspense. You knew that everyone would make it out alright.

The characters were not well fleshed out and a lot of times when completely away from how they had been set up to that point. The romantic plot was very contrived and didn't really make and sense.

This could have been a very good take if the writer had taken his time and expanded on characters and the plot and most importantly kept the threats real. By the end all the characters where basically superheroes and nothing could hurt them. Sadly it was short, boring and easily forgettable.
