    When miners release an ancient and deadly virus, Lori, a nurse, finds herself at ground zero of a deadly battle for survival. With time running out, can Lori find the strength to fight an ever-increasing enemy and save her family? A fast-paced, exhilarating ride through a zombie apocalypse, this story asks the question: what would you do to save the people you love?

    Andrew Pollack says: "Mostly just a 'run from zombies' book, but not bad"
    "One of the BEST Zombie Tales Yet..."

    Story

    I've read ALOT of zombie novels and have started listening to them on Audible too (thank you Audible!) and this is one of the most engaging ones yet! Sue absolutely knows how to tell a story that grabs you from the beginning and takes you on a wild and wonderful ride through to the end. Her characters are likeable and she made me care what happened to them. I particularly like the heroine of her story, Lori, who is basically a Mom trying to save her family and is easily relatable. I've read so many zombie novels and horror novels in general that I'm not easily creeped out but there were places in this story that definitely made the hair on the back of my neck stand up and made me wonder if I really want to do housesitting out in the country by myself surrounded by way too many windows! I cared enough about the characters that there was also a part that had me desperately and discreetly wiping the tears out of my eyes before anyone could wonder why I was crying while I typed away on my keyboard doing mindless work. These are not your typical throw away characters who only serve the story as victims of the zombie hoards.

    My only criticism was that the narrator could have used more emotion instead of at times sounding as if she was just reading to me, but she was very easy to understand and I did get used to her style as the book progressed.

    Sue is a very gifted storyteller and I highly recommend this book and cannot wait until the sequel is released!
