Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest. It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are fast, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.

in the beginning it was a little confusing with all the different types of stories going on. It was a little difficult for me to follow all the different characters. However towards the end I appreciate the fact that the author brought all of the characters together. For me that helps with stories that I'm listening to on Audible. It's sometimes harder for me to follow multiple streams within a book and keep everything straight.

Captain Jackson Wolfe never thought he'd see the end of the Phage War in his lifetime. The enemy was too powerful, too numerous, and utterly determined to exterminate humanity. But the appearance of a new ally in the fight has changed all of that. For the first time since the original incursion, Wolfe thinks that maybe there's a chance to stop their implacable enemy before they have the chance to wipe out any more human planets.

I think it could be even more enjoyable with better narration. the narration was not bad, there's just room for improvement there. Looking forward to reading the next book.

After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

The ARES Virus ran rampant throughout the world, leaving very few remaining. There are no sanctuaries in the midst of the infected, where the very air is contaminated. For the few surviving, the slightest misstep can introduce the viral agent into their midst, bringing an end to the last vestige of humankind. However, there's too much at stake to merely hover in the shadows. Remnants of the navy survive the catastrophe, but humankind has never been able to live for long periods upon the world's oceans.

so the thing I think I did not care for about this book is it felt just like a book. It was so much narration in this book. I think it took from the storyline. I would have much more enjoyed more dialogue between the characters. in other books that I've listened to the narrator will change voices a lot more, you get more immersed in the book. Not so much with this one. I not even sure I'm going to go for the next one in the series.
