    Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines. When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

    Interesting beginning that goes nowhere.

    I would have liked it much better if it had stuck with the intense, serious tone it started with rather than turning into cheese after the first few c..Show More »

    With human civilization annihilated by a biological zombie plague, a ragtag fleet of yachts and freighters known as Wolf Squadron scours the Atlantic, searching for survivors. Within every abandoned liner and carrier lurks a potential horde, safety can never be taken for granted, and death and turning into one of the enemy is only a moment away. Yet every ship and town holds the flickering hope of survivors. One and two from lifeboats, a dozen from a fishing village, a few hundred wrenched by fury and fire from a ship that once housed thousands....

    Wonderful Post-ZA Story

    This is extremely difficult for me as there is so much in this book that cannot fit in only three words. If forced, however, I would go for alliterat..Show More »

    I am a big fan of John Ringo. The first two books in the series were great and I eagerly added the third to my library when it became available. Boo..Show More »

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.

    Good ending to the series.

    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 an..Show More »
