5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Series to have
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2016
I've totally enjoyed this series. Book 7 gives us Sandy's view of the happenings in this strange new world where survival, and life and death are always in question. One thing survivors have to worry about besides the monsters, is about food and water. Are they safe to eat and drink? This is a journey of friends helping friends in an apocalyptic world from the view of one woman. They are real to you. You love some of them and others you would gladly eliminate yourself. The journey for these survivors continue as they find out what caused the apocalypse. The character development is like reading about old friends and family and each page brings excitement, just when you think you've had enough you get more. You will be turning pages long after you should of turned the lights off and gone to bed. This series and his other series are not to be missed. You will not regret one book you buy from this author. I was given an advance copy for a honest review, but I also have had this book on pre-order since March, that is how much I love his books.
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother "Can't put it down, so what if I'm late for work" installment from Mr. Piperbrook!!

Book 7 in the Contamination series is another page turner from T.W. Piperbrook. We find out how Sandy makes out after her encounter with Dan and Quinn, where he shares with her what he found out about how the apocalypse started. Sandy and her friends from the lumberyard have a long road ahead of them and Reginald does not make it easy for them by any means. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat every step of the way. If you haven't given this series a try, you are missing out on an amazing tale of survival during the zombie apocalypse. I highly recommend all of T. W.'s books - not a bad one among them! Dive in and Enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe Zombies are Fantasy; the desperate people's behaviors are what scare me.

While this next book in the Contamination Series was an enjoyable and exciting reading experience, the realistic behaviors are very disturbing. The possibility of people deteriorating to the kinds of actions and reactions described here are closer than we realize. The world we live in has become a very dangerous place for so many reasons. There is the ever present danger of Terrorism on a scale that could seriously damage our economy, transportation, distribution and services systems. Can you just imagine the chaos that would occur if food deliveries were halted for a week or so. Hungry people become desperate people very quickly. Will people come together in a crisis and share diminishing resources. I think the more likely results may be found in this and other books in this great series.
If I didn't have to go to work the next morning, this would've been finished in one night instead of two ! This book is an offshoot to Sandy's character and what happens on her journey to find safety. There was a short preface as to what was going on back when we last saw her character, which was good since I had read it awhile back. I love the characters and the excitement ! Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen next, surprise, another turn of events to keep the pages turning ! It was a great read, just like all of T.W,'s other books. If you haven't read them, you are missing out !! I received this book in exchange for an honest review, but I would've paid for it in a second !! Keep up the great work Tyler, love your writing !!
5.0 out of 5 starsSandy and friends escape and look for help

I wasn't too sure how I'd like this book which is told from Sandy's perspective instead of Dan and Quinn's. The story flowed along with Hector, Marcia, Anabel and Simon helping Sandy after she enabled Dan & Quinn to get out of the lumberyard in St Matthews. There were a few places where i could tell exactly what would happen next, but I truly enjoyed seeing if Sandy and the rest would find help. When Simon and Reginald fought, it seemed like it would be a toss up if Simon could win and get back to help Sandy and the rest fight off the creatures! This has been a great series and I did enjoy reading it from a fresh point of view.
5.0 out of 5 starsResistance is futile - not for the group in this story!!!

The last episode in the Contamination series is excellent. The characters are well developed, and the plot and twists will keep you turning pages. I couldn't put the book down. TW Piperbrook certainly knows how to write exciting zombie stories. I'm sad that this is the last episode, but I'm looking forward to reading his Outage books. I highly recommend this book and the Contamination books preceding this one.
5.0 out of 5 starsBest Series I have seen in a very very long time.
Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2016
I ran into book one and started reading and only stopped when I was done with Contamination 7 finishing one book then jumping on Amazon and buying the next and the next until I couldn't find any more of the series. I have so many questions that I hope will be answered in Book Eight. There will be a Book eight right. What about Carter and are Carters son dead or will the show up in book ten or eleven. Reading these books was like crawling into them and being right there with Sandy, Simon, Dan and Quinn. I feel as if I need to not stop reading because something might happen to them while I am gone. Nuts but the story line is that good. Be prepared to finish each book in one setting.

I read the entire series of 7 books in a little over a week. The characters of the books are well developed and easy to like. There's a lot of adventure and action in all of the books. You will pull for the survivors and want to kick some butt on the folks that started the mess... they do get their butts handed to them. If you enjoy Zombie books get the series, you won't be disappointed.
This is a series and an author I genuinely enjoy. Normally spinoffs don't quite have the same appeal or draw but the style of writing means you always want to know what happens next. Sometimes with this type of genre the in between action parts get very dull, but it's a proper 100 mile an hour drama, for the characters and the reader!
Have read all the books in this series and every book was a must read Great author who knows how to write a page turner If you like these sort of books,you will love this series Highly recommended and will always look out for other books from this author.
