Just a kick ass read. Spoiler alert for those who don't want to know what the books about.
This one starts with Army Captain Scott Repp. Repp is thirty seven years old and in a year he will retire from the Army. Of course that was before the death flue and the walking dead.
Repp is 6'4" and weighs in at around 225 pound. He's currently with his battle group headed for Columbus, GA to try to save the city from the walking dead. The dead who came to life after a flue pandemic hit the US and everywhere else. This flue has killed millions of people and those millions have reanimated killing more. Once you are bitten you become the undead swelling the ranks of those the military has to fight.
Repp was married but came home to find his wife in bed with another man. Repp had no problem picking the man up and throwing him against a wall and then beating the hell out of him. He and his wife were divorced post haste. He has two kids who are currently with his Mother and Father in Rogers Corner, Michigan. Repp was there on a two week leave until he got orders to head back to Ft. Benning for briefing and an assignment to Columbus, GA.
Jed "Jack" Sherman is a killer. He's a killer and a sociopath but he's very selective on who he kills and for what reason.
Jack's current girlfriend, Sunshine, is a beautiful woman. She and her son Bret are trapped in the relationship. Jack turned from a great guy into a beater of woman. Of course he was always like this and friends tried to warn Sunshine but she saw only what she wanted to see. Hence her being trapped in a relationship with a killer.
Repp and his command ran into more than anyone bargained for in Columbus. Thousands of walking dead made it impossible for the military to save the city. Repp and two of his men finally managed to get out of Columbus but most of the Army was overrun by the walking dead.
Repp picked up civilians along the way and they made it to the Johnson Ranch. A place with cattle, horses, chickens, pigs and crops. A place that Repp decides will be home until he can get back to Michigan and his family.
So begins one damned fine well written book.
This one has Williams, Sunshine, two doctors, a kid named Arni, assorted civilian survivors, ham radios, a group of motorcycle marauders called Locust, Jack and his plans for Sunshine, Jack and his group who make it to the Ranch, Jack's brother and sister, civilians with abilities that come in handy at the ranch, military men who drift into the Ranch, a group of the undead numbering in the hundreds of thousands, plans to meet survivors who made it out of Atlanta, a man named Hector and his group, death, destruction, a tank, the Leader of the marauders and Captain Scott Repp leading the way to protect what they have and stay alive.
Five Stars and then some.
