The good: Apart from one or two homophone issues, this is mechanically well constructed and well edited. Author exhibits good use of vocabulary without overdoing it or falling into the trap of trying to wedge in every descriptive adjective possible. Narrative and dialog flow well and smoothly.

The less good: Plot holes, suspension of disbelief issues, and way-too-convenient coincidences abound. None of the characters display ANY tactical awareness - not the special forces operator nor any of the collection of soldiers he has with him, not the bad guys, and certainly not the main protagonist.

As another reviewer points out, the characters keep engaging in stupid, contra-survival activities and for the most part get away with it:

*The zombies are blocks away, and at the very last minute the main protagonist suddenly remembers her handgun, retrieves and opens the locked box it's stored in, verifies it's in there, and then RELOCKS the gun back in the box and sticks it under the front seat of her escape RV.

*They make it to their survival compound, but don't maintain a watch on the CCTV monitors at night.

*They DON'T check newcomers for bites or scratches; the newcomer's word is sufficient.

*They regularly smoke dope and listen to music as they make their forays out into zombieland.

*They keep all the weapons under lock and key 'to keep the children safe'.

There are more, but these are my favorites.

Bottom line: It's a well-written, not-very-good zombie tale.

What would you do if you received advanced notice of a zombie pandemic? This is an excellent story that captures you from the beginning and doesn't let go until the end. With its Romero style zombies and perfect balance of action and character driven scenes it is sure to appeal to a wide range of horror fans. If you are a prepper with a taste for brains you are sure to like this.

Very surprising, this was a good story. I was leery of a female author writing this type of thriller. But she did and excellent job.
The story was engaging, and she did not shy away from the horrors of what may happen.
The book is more character driven, so if you are looking for tons of blood and guts go elsewhere.
There is plenty of realistic gross happenings, but it is the people you care about, and hope they make it out alive.
The ending was good and I am hoping she will write more about these people, and possibly some others that have survived the
zombie apocalypse.

I'm not sure what book the people who gave it 5 stars were reading but I don't see how it could have been this one. The book itself was written OK but the number of issues with the book is staggering. Possible spoiler warning:

A soldier in China sends proof of zombies to his wife in the U.S. who gives a copy to friends he barely keeps in touch with. OK I'll go with that but then in the middle of the story you want me to believe that the main female character, in the midst of a Zombie uprising just HAPPENS to run across this soldier? I know authors have to take liberties sometimes but give me a break.

All the sections of the story are vague. Areas that should have more detail are completely lacking and others have so much information they are overloaded.

They keep guns locked up because of the children which seems like a great idea with Zombies roaming. And speaking of Zombies, for a zombie book there seemed to be a major lack of zombie or zombie encounters. They show up at the wall, are killed and burned. The battles are generic and not very exciting. At no time did you feel like they were about to be overrun. Then their is the great part where one girl thinks she is pregnant. They all (including the main female) worry about the difficulties of having a child in this new world and how the timing is not ideal. YET a few pages later when Emily is alone with the magically appearing soldier they have non-stop unprotected sex. Seriously? Apparently between pages Emily became stupid. And from their first time you know she is going to get pregnant which means that of course the long lost husband will be showing up. 4 bad guys show up at the wall and instead of protecting themselves they allow 4 guys into their compound.

Decent book. Not many that I've read where the characters had that much warning. The characters are like-able and fairly well developed. Fairly good, easy read, until:

SPOILER ALERT!

These people were prepared. Huge concrete walls, great field of view/fire from the top of the wall. Lots of guns and ammo - which they have no problem using to shoot zombies. Here's where it gets me - why on earth would they let five armed men inside the walls without a fight? Oh no! they have explosives! They have to get to the darn gate to use them. That is what your prepping and planning was for! Not to just roll over as soon as a threat arrives. Especially one where a few head shots saves the day - which, coincidentally, they've been practicing every day! I mean, really - you give up your home, sanctuary, bodies, without a fight? Especially when you're the ones with all of the tactical advantages???
