This is a somewhat Tom-Clancy-styled outbreak story, filled with references to insider information about the intelligence community and the inner workings of the CIA, and expounding on military/intel technology. The novel appears to draw heavily on what has been written (and eventually turned into film) about the incident in Benghazi. The SEAL mythos (perhaps not undeserved) is propagated through the cool characters of the former-SEAL contractors working to protect the station's analysts. You have to love the unshakeable duo of Dugan and "Maximum Bob" even if they are a little bit more than human.
In a country where "everyone owns an AK-47," and there are multiple terrorist, militia and insurgent groups already in conflict, the growing epidemic touches a spark to the powder keg. The action ramps up quickly. The dread grows. Things get hectic and very desperate. The undead swarm in ever growing numbers as options dwindle, and it is increasingly evident that the cavalry aren't coming because they are joining the ranks of the unliving....
Bottom Line: Well worth your time and money. This is a very readable zombie outbreak story definitively set within the context of the Global War on Terror and its follow-on(s). Exciting and tense, with interesting, well-written characters and rocking combat sequences, it is hard to put down. It has a good deal more depth than usual for the Military Fiction style of Zombie Novel. Much to love for Zombie Fans!
Fortress Britain starts off with the zombies already a world wide threat, the end of the world as we know it, and mankind's only hope are the top tier special forces operators of Britain & the U.S. A book written just for me it appeared. Well, Genesis (Arisen) sets up the world of Fortress Britain. It starts off with some CIA agents in an outpost in the Horn of Africa and spreads from there. Once you get past the setup part the action starts hot and heavy and does NOT let up. I read the last two thirds of the book with a smile on my face, as I just kept enjoying this thriller more & more! Arisen Genesis is sort of like a cool combination of Strike Back: The Complete First Season (Cinemax) (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) and Dawn of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut) [Blu-ray]. Zombie lovers (and who isn't?) and military thriller lovers will enjoy the Arisen series. A third book is due out next month. I got to keep on reading and catch up........!
