Later on she realizes that she also sent it to her boss Jamie and now Leah is worried that she is going to be in trouble and lose her job. But Jamie takes it as to be the truth and does more research on the matter and then plays it on the air later giving Leah credit for the video.
The government decides to call for a lockdown to quarantine everyone inside hoping to stop the spread of the virus. But like Leah most people don’t believe that people are turning into zombies and so don’t stay indoors. After seeing a zombie attack someone and start eating them Leah then starts to believe that the virus is real and not a hoax.
It’s not long before Leah starts to get a little claustrophobic from staying cooped up inside and thinking about her family and if she will ever see them again. Leah decides that she if this is the end she would like to spend it with her family and with the belief that her boss won’t let her leave she decides that she will go during the middle of the night when everyone else is asleep so no one can stop her. But really who could stop her she is an adult. She knows she can’t make it out there all by herself but she will if that is her only choice but she is in luck as her best friend Michelle and Jake want to go as well.
Lockdown is unlike any zombie book I think I have ever read before. I have had Lockdown on my to read list for a long time but I just kept putting it off reading other books but I wouldn’t take it off my list and I am so glad that I finally opened it up and started reading. I loved that we got to know Leah before we saw any zombies. I also liked that she didn’t believe that the zombie virus was real well not until she saw it with her own two eyes.
Leah may not have been a strong tough kicka** kind of girl but she was very brave to go out amongst all those zombies to see her family again. If we were faced with zombies ourselves how many of us would take the step that she did? Most of us would probably crawl under the bed and stay there and say “wake me when it’s over”. We would not want to go out and come face to face with a zombie unless we had no choice.
I love reading about zombies and Lockdown totally rocks the zombie world! And now on to the next book in the AM13 Outbreak series Forgotten. I would recommend Lockdown to anyone who loves zombies!!!!
Woa, what a seriously cool storyline this book had; it was so different! I loved the idea and story so much, but the main female, Leah, was quite annoying which is probably kept me from giving the book 5 stars… I really was not a fan of hers. However, I did like how the heroine was not your typical bada** you see in most of these books. She was a regular girl. The book began with the pre-zombie apocalypse which was awesome, so you got a bit of an insight into the world before it all came crashing down.
Leah's co-worker Jake (who she was crushing on majorly) always sent around joke e-mails, so she thought it would be funny to send him one back…about a zombie virus. But she accidentally included her boss in the e-mail. Certain she was about to be fired, she was shocked to the core when her boss took the story seriously and began broadcasting it all over their news station. She was sure she was going to be the laughing stock of….well…everyone when her name was brought into it as the girl that discovered the video about the AM13 virus. But then the government announces there is going to be a mandatory lockdown, to rid the streets of anyone infected with the virus. Sounds like a good plan to contain things quickly….right? WRONG! Things begin quickly spiraling out of control. Many do not take it serious at first, and even Leah is not believing there is any truth to this story. Until her and her co-workers witness first hand the virus in action.
When Leah, her best friend Michelle, and Jake decide to break out from the lockdown, no one was prepared for what they would be faced with on the outside.
The entire book was not a lot of in your face zombie gore (although there def was some), and the beginning was a totally unique idea. The further you got into the book, the more the intensity picked up until you hit the end. THE END. Seriously, it was such a WTF moment that I did not expect. I want to rave on and on about the genius of having her POV the way the author did, but I can't without giving anything away. I was confused for a bit. Then I was just downright shocked and disgusted (in the best way possible). For me, the ending alone should be given 7 stars! I am so glad I was recommended this book. It def did not let me down.

I loved how the characters developed, even if the finishing twist is a bit unclear on the how :-)
