Man, oh man, that John Chase doesn't know the meaning of the word QUIT - Fast paced story that really interesting and engaging, the story is added to with Rachel and DOG. The world is ending and infected are everywhere.But Holy Smokes!!! what a ride - there is just enough military to let the reader know that Dirk Patton was military, but not enough to put you to sleep, It makes the story interesting.
I actually prefer the audiobook version so I can listen on the go and audiobooks 1-6 are fantastic.
Basic run down of the series is John Chase goes to Atlanta on business, the next day weird stuff starts happening. He sees Rachel running from infested through the swamp and saves her. The world goes to hell, John needs to get back to Phoenix, AZ to find his wife Katie. Along the way, John and Rachel find Dog and a whole bunch of infected and a bunch of Yahoos -
There are several unique elements that make the series stand out from the ordinary.
1. The “zombies” are not undead; they are regular people who have been infected with a bioterrorism virus. Females are fast, 28 days later rage-filled creatures, and some exhibit intelligence, while males form slow shambling Romero-type herds.
2. This is not a story about an average Joe rising to the occasion -- the central character in the series, John Chase, is a highly trained ex-military superhero. He keeps going and going, like the Energizer bunny, and is skilled to the extent that the reader has to suspend disbelief at some points. But being a superhero has its benefits, and it allows John to charge from action-packed situation to situation, which makes for a tense roller-coaster ride -- bringing us to point 3.
3. Action is non-stop. Infected! Nukes! White Supremists! Tornados! Slavers! Floods! Train Wrecks! Plane Crashes! Redneck Shit-kickers! Rescues! Bioterrorism! Serial Killers! Invading Forces! Helicopter Crashes! There is seriously no breathing space ever in this series, which means there is never a logical breaking point when you can go to sleep or leave the book for a while.
4. The characters, including those in supporting roles, are all interesting. I didn’t much like John at first, as he is bit macho in the first book, but the other characters caught my attention, especially Dog. Rachel, the rather clichéd “stripper with heart of gold” (and smarts too) is tough and resilient and likeable. Crawford, Jackson, Roach, and other characters add depth to the story. Though you don’t want to get attached to them….these are normal mortals unlike John!
The Voodoo Plague series is good fun, and I recommend that you get the entire set, call in sick to work, and tell your family that you need some personal space. Then, curl up in a dark room and enjoy the roller-coaster ride as John, Rachel, and Dog try to survive the action-packed events in Dirk Patton’s extraordinary, post-apocalyptic world.
What fascinates me even more is the duality in the characters' line of thought: The demented Roach that enters into a 'likely' partnership of acceptance, Rachel's internal and struggling discourse that centers around her romantic inclinations towards John and her guilt towards his wife that he desperately tries to find, and John...a highly skilled operator, but sometimes flawed in the decisions he makes.
The cliff hanger...oh the cliff hanger! Cannot wait for Book 5.

Then you get home ,get yourself sorted and cosy down to read.Promising yourself that you'll only read for a bit.One, you have a early start the next day ,two ,your dog tired.
Next thing you know ,it's 2:30 am, you know your going to be like a half shut knife at work,but you still read till the end of the chapter.
Well this is that book.
This a great read ,and don't say you weren't warned about the sleep deprivation.
Cannot believe how many of these I read (in about a week!)
Well worth it
Fantastic, brilliant and amazing rolled in to one. A great series of books and this instalment adds a new element. This is the best zombie/apocalypse I have read and I have been through most of them. When's the next one Mr Patton?!
