""I don't if I shot anyone,"
and a sentence later:
"I guess the men in black where sitting back, waiting for us"
a paragraph later:
'Because they're they only ones that say 'fearless' on them"
Very annoying! There are so many better Z books out there, that this book should be a VERY LAST resort for anyone wanting to get into the genre.
The premise is the story of a girl who is the lone survivor of an apocalypse. The entire continent of Australia is under quarantine. Everyone wants to hear Rebecca's story. Since I read this on the kindle, I am not sure about how many pages this story is. It had about 2450 locations. The reason that I am saying this is the fact that I blew through this book in an afternoon! I'm not sure if it was short or if I just could not put it down(which is also true). I rooted for these characters! This is a virus zombie apocalypse. The victims are dead and fast. They are mindless. They are like the 28 Days Later infected with the bleeding and mindless rage, and the need to infect at all cost to themselves.
The infected are not the only scary thing in this book. I mean not only are you in this situation with infected everywhere, but you are being annhilated at every turn by the military. I thought the writing was well done. The only complaint I have is that it is over! Also, I thought that some of the situations at the end were too much of a huge coincidence, but you have to suspend some belief for anyone to know anything!
Fans of John MARSDEN's book Tomorrow, When The War Began (this author is John Harden... what a coincidence) will fill all the gaps half way through the book when a scene from the MARSDEN book is ripped right out and slapped into this one with barely a tweak to cover it up. Suddenly you will remember why the "disaster scenario as told by a teenage girl with an asian love interest" bit sounded so familiar for all those pages you'd just read.
As an aside, I can only assume the author is a teenager himself because a lack of real world experience shows painfully thoughout the book.
On one side we have a character that is one year out of high school and is already on patrol as a police officer (flying solo no less). This is a far cry from the easily researched reality of six months at the academy, one year with a proabationary officer and years more riding shotgun and playing second fiddle to more experienced officers.
"An easy mistake" you might say, but then we have another character that appears to have gotten into the U.S. Marines at 16 years of age (via fraud, fair enough) and emerges two years later as a sniper/afghan veteran, supposedly with over 100 kills. Boot camp? Sniper school? Or did they just hand him a rifle and air-drop him into Taliban country?
These are just two exampes. There are plenty more. This feels like something I'd have written in high school when I didn't know jack from squat. I'd have still rated it higher but for the fact that the author is ripping off John Marsden (once again, the author of this book going by the name of John Harden surely cannot be a coincidence).
One star. Play by the rules and do your research.
The description on Amazon is a bit vague. Here's another one.
Three scientists have developed a virus intended for use as a weapon. They are testing it on various groups that no one should really miss (refugees, terrorists and people smugglers for example). There is a containment breach in the Australian Outback and in a short period of time, the country is overrun with zombies. A media blackout meant to control panic and prevent the story from getting out also keeps most of the world ignorant of the disaster. Most of the story is told from Rebecca's point of view, she is an average 16 yr old girl.Read more ›

A cast of characters that you can relate too and feel what they feel. Plenty of action. A great start to the series.Published 13 months ago by Christopher Haught
