A hardened group of survivors fight back against a zombie plague that has brought down civilization. With the world consumed by a devastating plague that drives humans violently insane, what was once a band of desperate survivors bobbing on a dark Atlantic ocean has now become Wolf Squadron, the only hope for the salvation of the human race. Banding together with what remains of the U.S. Navy, Wolf Squadron, and its leader Steve Smith, not only plans to survive - he plans to retake the mainland from the infected, starting with North America. Smith's teenage daughters have become zombie hunters of unparalleled skill, both at land and on the sea, and they may hold the key to the rebirth of civilization on a devastated planet.

I wish they would of added more on spots they skipped and less on operations. I was hoping for how they would Intergrate with another large force and what you would you do with people that didn't want the new world to go back.
I'm hoping John Ringo ends here. While the book is not bad for what it is. Parts of it at time felt contrived. It really seemed as if the author was trying to force the story to a conclusion. As a fan of many John Ringo books that may not have been a bad thing.
Fun, cool, interesting, action-packed, and unique take on zombie apocalypse. I'm a big fan of John Ringo's books. He writes in a very comfortable style.. he's a good writer.. but he also knows how to throw in great humor mixed with technical detail and hardcore military concepts. Mix Neal Stephenson, Steve Martin, Tom Clancy, and Richard Marcinco... while drinking Scotch and listening to Crux Shadows. He's at the top of my novel watch list.
Did it feel rushed? This series had characters that I really liked and maybe Ringo felt he didn't want to write this series anymore... I personally liked it and felt that book one and two were great. I would say grab this and enjoy it for what it is, an ending.
Tristan Morris does a good job throughout the series. He's not a very convincing 14 year old girl, but he does their Da justice. Please, make another installment and have Tristan Morris read it.
To those interested in this book. This is the 4th book. It is written so that you can start with it, but it's better to start with Under a Graveyard Sky. Yes, it is a zombie apocalypse story. It is a unique, to me, approach to a ZA. There are a few mistakes with military terminology, but not many. I am a Coastie vet and from my point of view there aren't enough mistakes to pass on this series.
Just an all around fun book. Don't try to believe any of it. Just sit back, listen and enjoy. I couldn't help but enjoy the well read story.
"Just getting better :)"
I am just gripped by these books, normally series do have stuttering books but ok only book 4 but so far each one gets better than the last. Can not wait until number 5!
"not as good as the other books"
I loved the other books in this series but this was a let down. To full of acronyms and abbreviations and not enough story about the characters and situations. lots of information that didn't add to the overall story and just not enough plot.
"john does it again"
Another awsome saga with wolf squadron. faith is the biggest baddass in the world and rocks
"Slightly less coherent than books 1-3"
There is more of a gearshift from book 3 than there was from book 2 to 3, and it seemed slightly discordant once or twice. "Wilkes" previously a very somber character with a fairly stern parental tone in all conversations, suddenly in this book is jocular and, having been reduced from secondary character to background, is acting like a random 30-something. I'm not sure if it's the lines as written or the delivery, but it was jarring in spots. Even so, I enjoyed the book and look forward to any sequel that may come.
