The writing is fine, if a bit amateur-ish at parts (lots of "telling" instead of "showing", too much passive, etc.). There is a lot of punctuation missing (commas, mainly). I don't give it high marks on the narrative and overall construction, but the dialogue was good.
The characters were a bit two-dimensional, though perhaps that has more to do with the length of the book (not enough time to delve into the characters). Either way, I felt nothing toward the various characters when they lived, died, or suffered.
The ending disappointed me in a way, and made me say "Oh well done" in another way. The disappointment was the very anticlimactic climax (it barely stood out as being the climax of the book). I can't tell you what I liked, as that would spoil the book.
All in all, not a bad read, but not the awesome zombie book I was hoping for.
S.K. Gregory does a great job at thrusting readers into the plot right away and using a flashback later on to allow readers to see what was going on before s!$^ had hit the fan, because let’s face it, we’re all going to be caught with our pants down when zombies really emerged.
Rachel has an independence about herself in the wake of the apocalypse, which is hindered thanks to her little cousin Cady. What I like about Rachel is that she isn’t a highly trained killer who was born for this new world. She is a true survivor, with her strength stemming solely from her need to protect her family. How many zombies Rachel can avoid as opposed to how many she can kill is the definition of true survival horror. This is a must read for any zombie fan.

Great characters, interesting plot, with surprising revelations, and an ending that will have you wanting more. I would definitely recommend it.
