    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Story

    I was looking forward to the completion of the series and tried to really like this book but it's almost impossible. The publisher should have chosen someone who was a more seasoned writer. Thom Brannan apparently lost sight of the characters and their motivations. He has them behaving in contradictory actions to what was previously established in the first two books. He apparently mistook schizophrenia for character development. This occurred in so many instances that it completely ruined the book for me. To top this off, Oliver Wyman who narrated the first two books superbly, followed suit by forgetting the character voices that he established in the first two books. He has Brewster changing his accent from sounding like Private Hudson (Aliens) in the first two novels to a weak southern accent, to no accent, back to southern and then finally a pale imitation of his original characterization. Jack goes from Aussie to flat. In the first two books, you could identify who was speaking solely by Wyman's voice acting alone. In this book, half of the characters sound the same and it becomes extremely confusing. Come on Oliver, get your characters straight and stay with them!
