Dan and Quinn Lowery may have escaped the initial infection, but their journey is far from over. Their once-safe location has been compromised, overrun by the agents and the infected. Now, in order to survive, they must first escape.

More of the same, rather uninspired characters making poor decisions. Yet again, I wish the author would do some simple research (weapons, police tactics, etc) to make the story richer and more realistic.

The infection has begun, ravaging the American Southwest and leaving chaos in its wake. In this new world, there will be no last meal, no dying wish. The only reward left is to survive another day...

The setting is poor and not logical, I liked the method of transmission, and most of the characters. However, I found myself yelling at my tablet several times in frustration at the unrealistic reactions of the characters, blatantly bad choices they made to only be saved by fate, or completely illogical and unrealistic plot points.

*SPOILERS*




Having been an officer for more than 15 years, the actions of the officer here are clearly written by someone with no experience in that area. The junkyard scene is a mess, an officer is never going to give up his gun in a situation like that, with a clear shot at a clearly insane person. The protagonist EVERY TIME gave up their gun even when it made no sense to do so. They often left behind essential tools, weapons food or vehicles for seemingly no reason. Also, where is the military? What about the rest of the country? People arent simply NOT going to notice. There is simply no way a few hundred "white coats" with civilian small arms to deal with potentially millions of infected.
The entire premise is illogical. they wouldnt have enough bodies left to even repopulate, let alone defend North America (with our resources we would be invaded immediately once we couldn't defend ourselves). They couldn't run essential industry, grow enough food, have medicines etc. And this makes even less sense with it being run by a sociopath from behind the wizards curtain.
