OK, the initial premise is different, but the story itself doesn’t offer anything new to the zombie genre, which is a shame because the book is well written. The characters although interesting, are not at all realistic, and seem more superhuman than human.
My favorite zombie/vamp novel yet.
Very interesting apocalypse/ post-apocalypse scenario and although not particularly believable, the foundation premise did make as much sense as most of the zombie/vampire scenarios as did the setting in the Mormon communities in Utah.
The main character, again somewhat at odds with my usual preferences, is not a particularly likeable individual but he is well developed and is particularly competent so the whole thing works.
Not my usual read and I actually didn't expect to like it as well as I did. I imagine I will indulge in the next volume as well and see if the author can do this again.
SADLY, I realized the protagonist was GREEN ARROW killing vampire and zombies like it was a walk in the park. It was target practice out there for him, the guy made it seem like it was fun. In addition, the book had some extremely boring aspects that almost put me to sleep. These characters were much too clever. The book was well written, but lacked character struggle and potential to be an entertaining zombie outbreak.
I would strongly recommend this book to any superhero enthusiast out there. The MAN PUTS ON A SHOW! Characters weren't fascinating, genius characters, trained assassins, sleeping zombies(i'm serious)and a HUGE WASTE OF TIME. BEWARE OF THIS BOOK!!
I feel like it had everything. It was humorous, it was scary, it was dramatic. I loved every moment of it. The characters weren't wooden, they all had depth. The author's main character has it all. He's an ass and he knows it. Even though part of me couldn't stand the character, he was pretty amazing and it was fun having those conflicting emotions about him. I always looked forward to the chapters written in his perspective.
What I really enjoyed about this book is that Zombies weren't a mystery unlike in popular movies where people don't know what they are dealing with and it's rare for the script to even use the word Zombie. It's as if the Apocalypse has happened today and we all know what we know about zombies from the movies. The writer puts into words what we are shouting at the screen to the doomed survivors who made stupid mistakes. This author was able to fit aliens, vampires and zombies into a single book without it seeming silly. It was an interesting take on the zombie genre and I loved it.
It probably could have been more gruesome. I've read books where the writer described zombie attacks in horrible gut-wrenching detail but a lot of those didn't have much for plot. Where the writer loses a bit where he could have been more graphic I feel he gains with his smart explanations without being having textbook detail where it becomes boring and a chore to read.
This is a very smart and satisfying read.
This author gives us what we want and more and made me realize that it wasn't my fault I was losing interest in reading. I just hadn't come across any good reads until now.

It's informative. The main hero is a tool and I like him more for it. Told from many perspectives. Fast paced and can't wait to read the night one!
