Interesting enough for me to finish the set, but not enough for me to recommend. Suddenly 90+% of the population collapses and stands back up as flesh-eating zombies. Characters don't even speculate about why. It seems that there is a genetic component to the Fall, as the main characters' families all survive initially. Also never mentioned. Three main characters spend the full story in a mostly futile quest to reach their families hundreds of miles away. The Empties have only been dead for a few days but already are in pathetic states of decay and we hear way too often about how bad they smell. Too many characters continue with their petty, selfish, pre-Fall personalities and never get a grip on the idea that they should work together. Even the nominal hero only does anything good because he needs the gang to help on his journey to his parents, dead or alive. Finally, the supernatural ending should annoy you as much as it does me. A large complaint is that this is one story broken into three parts, none of which stand alone. I can only assume that parts 4 and 5 should also have been included in one novel.
But I got suckered by the reviews. It seems to me that the author reworded all the zombie apocalypse stories out there. Quite a bit of the walking dead story lines. And at times not even changing the words. 1 scene where a Negan like character is trying to decide who dies in this group of good guys. He actually uses the Eeny Meany Miney Moe Schitck Nothing original. Which would be ok if the writing and characters were compelling or likeable. Add in an anti Christian /anti religion tone and a leftist political stance. And top it all off with a out of nowhere a main character (Rick from Walking Dead) killed off then resurrected by a random hillbilly preacher. I try to read and support new authors as much as possible but I feel like I got ripped off on this one. Way over priced
