White Ash on Bone...
on October 12, 2012
I read the book essentially in 1 sitting over about 6 to 6 1/2 hours, with few interruptions. The book is set in Pennsylvania and the story centers specifically on a few small Counties in Western Pennsylvania, there are some references and "news" reports about things occurring around other parts of the Country, particularly the North East, but overall this is an intimate short term (3-5 days?) look at the start of a ZA occurring in what could be rural Anywhere, USA.
I will start by saying I enjoyed the book a great deal, and devoured it from digital "cover" to "cover" quickly and never felt like I wanted to stop reading and take a break, I was engrossed in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen next. It has a good bit of gore and plenty of gun play and a strong military presence throughout. I will recommend this book to others I know to be fans of the genre.
I do feel the book left a lot unsaid, it does come to a natural closing point at the end, but I was left wanting to know more and what happens next. Perhaps this means the author is planning on writing more books and expanding the world he has created, but I personally hate waiting for the next installment in a series. I have countless other series of books I've read and am waiting for the author to write more.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book and read it though in one sitting always hungering for more, and at the end I was left still hungry. I wish the book had been twice as long!
