Not bad but not great ! There were many things the survivors could have done to keep safe. For instance if UV lights worked as a weapon then why didn’t they surround the compound with big UV lights? Or get tractor and dig up the holes during the day. Also why would Zoey be looking for sister in place that was many miles from where they lived. It made no sense at all I’m quite sure the Aliens had clusters of holes and tunnels all over the place. The main character could have been stronger and used logic over emotions to make decisions. I will read the second book I’m hoping she develops into stronger and smarter thinking survivor .

It is a week since the outbreak began in New York. The president has been betrayed. The vice-president is dead. The conspirators are close to victory. Having narrowly escaped agents of the cabal, Tom Clemens heads to Washington in the hope of warning the president, but it is too late. The highways are impassable, filled with millions fleeing from the cities. As refugees storm the towns, and zombies fill the smoking ruins, survivors become more deadly a threat than the impossibly living dead.

My only complaint is I wish the narrator had put more inflection into the voices he did for the women. He made them all seem very bored and if it was an effort to talk and every emotion sounded the same . Especially Helena she had a very flat affect as if she was on to many antidepressants. Other than that I really loved the story and it was very well written.

Story so far does have a lot about zombies and for the main character to be a cop he made a lot of dump decisions. Also he care more about his “job” than his family’s safety. Out chasing a criminal instead of protecting his home and family. What did he think would happen when he gone all day thinking up dump shit to do. Which at the end helped no one and got people killed. Storyline went in to many directions.

Great story !!! however I just felt for an army vet Lee should have a bit more sharper. Why he didn’t take a gun when they escaped the first quarantine center that made no sense at all. Even sister his kept saying it would have been nice to have that gun. Also I hated the voice the narrator use for Lee made him sound like a goofball. Loved Steve O he is hilarious. I’m looking forward to Book 2 .

People are growing ill; eyes changing color, burning up with a fever so fierce that it causes them to go crazy, attacking those around them, spreading the infection like wildfire. People are trying to escape the unknown sickness, but there is nowhere to run...nowhere to hide.... The only chance for the survival of the human race is to stay and fight. However, they're unaware of what they're fighting. What they're up against is much greater than anything they could ever imagine. This is just the beginning....

I have read many many zombie apocalypse books but these characters are some the dumbest people yet. How do you have cop not wanting to kill someone with infection if he is not feeling threatened. He turned he back and the guy almost killed him. Ellie there no words for her stupidity. Bill is not even worth talking about. Amanda at least has some survival skills. I’m only going to finish because I want to see who survives and who doesn’t and if the story gets better and the people get more in tune to surviving instead of wanting to help infected people that want to kill them. I’ll do another review when I finish.

They are coming. The countdown has begun. First visible only as blips on a telescope image, the discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter's orbit immediately sets humanity on edge. NASA doesn't even bother to deny the alien ships' existence. The popular Astral space app (broadcasting from the far side of the moon and accessible by anyone with Internet) has already shown the populace what is coming.

First the narrator was horrible. She read like someone being forced to read out loud and she made lots of mistakes and I’m surprised they were not edited out. The story the main character was just plain stupid and pathetic if I heard her say “I’m afraid of being alone, I don’t want to be alone” Where is Jim one more time I was going to scream. I have no desire to listen to the second book because don’t care what happens to them.

This a great zombie apocalypse story. Love the characters and storyline. The only thing that bother me is I felt that Alex took too many risks knowing she was the only parent alive to protect and care for them. If something were to happen to her those young children were done.
