About the Author

James N. Cook (who prefers to be called Jim, even though his wife insists on calling him James) is a martial arts enthusiast, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, a former cubicle dweller, and the author of the “Surviving the Dead” series. He hikes, he goes camping, he travels a lot, and he has trouble staying in one spot for very long. Even though he is a grown man, he enjoys video games, graphic novels, and gratuitous violence. He lives in North Carolina (for now) with his wife, son, two vicious attack dogs, and a cat that is scarcely aware of his existence.

I hesitated about buying this book for two reasons, it was not the 4th book in the series and reading the authors reviews had me confused. Curiousity won out.
I was very impressed how well both Jim & Joshua wrote together, and they did a wonderful job.
I have only one complaint, i am really so very tired of trying to follow so many series that ALL the authors of Zombie, Apocalypse, SHTF and end of the world books, seem to love to write. Give your readers a big break and put an end to these and write some great novels that have more than 80 pages (400 is a great book) and put a THE END.
Buy this book, u will read it in 2 hours, and enjoy it. Now i have the great pleasure of waiting & waiting & waiting................................................................

I can't believe the same person who wrote the bromance novels of the "Surviving the dead" series also co-wrote this amazing book. If James Cook wrote as well as he did in this book, I would've enjoyed his other series tenfold.

This is an EXCELLENT book, one that shines a new light on the typical zombie book. The first person view of the zombie was refreshing and original, and equally as heartening. The zombie and Gideon chapters were written by Joshua Guess, and it shows. While Cooks' effort in the military chapters was very, very good, Guess can simply paint a better picture. A deeper, more soulful picture. Some of the details in Cooks's portion were confusing....rather hard to follow. IE: during some firefights, the point of view of the main character seems to jump around from one spot to another, but without the description of the character actually moving to get that different point of view. It's not enough to detract from the overall story, though.

Guess is one of those rare writers that can actually make you empathize with a zombie. That's not easily done, and should clue you to the skill Guess has. This book is so good, I sincerely hope they team up again and continue with these characters, and make a new zombie series.

Barring that, I've now been opened to the amazing writing of Guess, and I've already started his books, Victim Zero and the Living with the Dead series.

Bravo! I really liked this story, it was a new perspective for me to see it through one of the characters view. It was a truly fun read! I would recommend it for anyone who loves a good adventure! I was surprised at how I was drawn into the emotion of the characters and was pleased with the flow of the story, including the ending. I find myself wanting more and hope for further adventures with the core characters! You won't be disappointed!

I enjoy both these authors, so I was anticipating enjoying this book. I am not dissatisfied.
This story is two in one. You get a zombie eye point of view, and the survivor point of view. There is also the madman antagonist. Can't forget him.
While there is combat this book is a must for zombie fans who enjoy a look into the minds of the actors in the story. While some of the minor characters may seem a bit unfinished I believe that is because there are three main psyches that are being laid open for examination. The main zombie, who's thoughts are really disturbing when you really examine them...I would hate to be him, the young solider , who is not only trying to survive, but also retain his humanity in a world gone mad, and finally a frightening look into the mind of someone who has just embraced all of the darkness inside. Three different reactions and the paths trod.
I enjoyed the peek into these minds, though at times it was disturbing.
Loved it!

Well written , compelling characters , good story line . I enjoyed reading this book , maybe because I am familiar with the series . If there is a criticism that has to be given , it must be that enough effort was not put into this book , that could have stood on its own as the beginning of another series , (perhaps interconnected ), or just a single book . I feel that it was designed to be a short story from the get go , and that is a shame , because I would have liked to know more about the backgrounds of the various settlements and peoples introduced in it.

Thoroughly enjoyed "The Passenger" by James Cook! There are actually two stories in one within this book; one follows Ethan and his squad of soldiers from Ft. Bragg as they patrol the wasteland - seeking out and eliminating zombies, the other is told through the eyes of a male zombie, dead and roaming for two years, after his brain suddenly regains consciousness within a deteriorating walking corpse.

Survivors of the Apocalypse have established forts across the frontier, growing their own food and taking advantage of the sun for power. Zombies are few and far in between and seldom pose a threat throughout the area. Each camp had established a leadership, developed and trained a militia and built defensive perimeters to protect the inhabitants from attacks by the undead. They are trying to make a life for themselves, trade routes were opened between the camps and designated, well-stocked rest areas established to accommodate those who are taking the risk to travel between these locations. A sheriff and deputies also travel on horseback through this wasteland to ensure the safety of these camps and their inhabitants.

It isn't long before the patrol of soldiers is ambushed by armed marauders on horseback. The soldiers have known about these groups, who were attacking these small settlements, killing or enslaving the inhabitants and then taking all the supplies for themselves. Eventually, the sheriff and deputies are captured after one of these firefights by the military soldiers who suspect them to be marauders - they're soon cleared when Ft. Bragg vouches for them. There is a major concern when a string of three settlements along the group of outposts goes "dark" and can't be reached. The two groups join forces and head out to investigate.
