If the zombie apocalypse happens tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
All Dr. Brianna Lewis wants is a cup of coffee. Coffee to make slaving away in her cell culture lab at Green Fields Biotech a little more bearable on a Friday afternoon when everyone is home already.
What she doesn't count on is a group of terrorists blowing up all the entrances to the building and taking her and a select few others hostage. Bree soon finds herself conflicted. Not only does she know their charismatic leader, she also starts to suspect that there is a lot more to this than the hunt for an illegal bioweapon - a virus that could potentially kill millions in just a few days. Particularly, there is currently a flu epidemic raging across the country, and reports about violent behavior among the afflicted are getting more and more alarming.

That line is when I knew this series was not for me. I've yet to read a ZA novel written by a women author that didn't eventually boil down to one of those adult romance novels your mom used to read, with some zombies every now and again.
Seriously there's an entire section of this book that sounds like a story about Stockholm syndrome and the romantic implications there in. Leading to a very graphic sex scene that makes it impossible for me to share this with friends and family. Half forgot I was even listening to a zombie novel.
The main character is annoying her love interest is one step above the "guys from twilight" all brooding and mysterious and what not. And the other characters are completely forgettable and poorly portrayed.
Finally the authors catchphrases are blaring throughout. Two of which include "my mind was happy to supply." And "what felt like a small eternity"
Just to clarify I don't consider this book to be utter garbage, just not for me. And now you know why.
sounds like it was written by a high school student ...childish discussions when it should be serious scene....lead character has her PHD but talks and thinks like a 16 year old.
I love zombie books. always looking for the next good one.
the first book covers how the virus is created
I really wish the author would have cut out a lot of this. felt like the focus of this book was the relationship between the two main characters. going to try the next book and see if it gets better promising series if the focus on zombies
Mind numbing, tedious and I hoped the main characters would be killed. There were a handful of zombies and no action until the last 45 minutes. The rest was filled with laboratory boring stuff and one unsexy sex scene. Not Steamy. I knew this book was bad when in the first 30 minutes we are told she could be very important to the kidnappers cause, and yet they try to shoot at her almost killing her a few times. If I were a lesbian I would find this book somewhat offensive. In the beginning she is in a relationship with a woman but in the end she ends up with a hot guy saying that her being a lesbian was college curiosity or some nonsense like that. I hated this book and took how bad it was personally. I did my due diligence I read the description, some good and some bad reviews I thought maybe this will be a 3 star because the premise sounded so interesting and the sample was promising. Nope, I was duped! This book had no action just a bunch of meaningless, dull and unimaginative conversation between the two love interests.
sci-fi lover. not a prepper but i dig end of the world stories. I'm a black smith and foundry man by trade. & Zombies Zombies Zombies.
the plot was poor. the story was fragmented and could use better form.
the narration was ok.
no so good really.
not interested in more.
irondale was ok. bad material.
boo. more action, less about the main character feelings. zombies are about guts and death and fear. not about relationships.
also, the plot was shit.
It started like any other zombie book really but then it went back in time to before their actual outbreak and filled you in on how the outbreak may have started. Characters were believable, and you find yourself routing for them.
The main female character spoke her mind and thought for herself
Wait for it. Biggest issue other reviewers appear to have is either with the lack of zombies, or the main character's apparent flip flop on her sexual orientation. I'll admit to having restarted the book thinking I missed something when the story moved to Brianna's affair with Nate. Given all that I found the book compelling, even with the absence of massive quantities of zombies and an apparent switch hitting heroine. I've listened to a wide range of zombie apocalypse literature over the last few years some excellent and others that left me wondering why I wasted a credit. Adrienne Lecter is building a base for her future books, and its solid enough that I will be purchasing the next one in this series.
