The Death will find you... Devin Chase was just living his life, when the world changed in an instant. In the matter of a week a deadly virus known as The Death ravages the world killing over 90% of those infected. After six months in a self-imposed quarantine, he emerges into a new world. As he travels, he discovers others like him who are immune, but he also discovers that the world he knew is gone. It has been replaced with a savage and brutal one where the only rule is kill or be killed.

I enjoyed the book enough, but didn't end up caring much for the characters or the writing style. The characters changed too drastically, too quickly. The reader did a mediocre job. He made an effort at the different voices and did an okay job at it, but he would inflect his tone really oddly and it the tone would often conflict with what the dialogue was.

Overall, it was a decent story, but I probably won't use my credits on the last two books mostly because the last book is just over 4 hours long (not really worth a credit, imo, or $10). Seems like a lazy way to end a story.
