Publisher's Summary

With the great battle between man and the undead apparently won and the situation seemingly in hand, the president leaps into action to take all the credit he can for saving the country and defending the Quarantine Zone. Surrounded by battalions of television news crews, he authorizes Operation Swift Stand in which he commits the nation's entire rapid deployment force in a show-stopping extravaganza designed more to rekindle patriotic fervor and to lift his own sagging poll numbers than to stop the undead.

Unfortunately, there have been leaks in the hard fought line and by the time the 82nd Airborne Division is dropped into central Connecticut, there are flesh hungry zombies wreaking havoc in Hartford, 10 miles behind their lines.

Suddenly, there is no line.

Day three devolves into chaos as no one knows who is infected and who isn't. Battles break out everywhere: soldier against soldier, and brother against brother, with fearsome zombies waiting to feast on the winners.

In the middle of all the mayhem, Deckard and Thuy are fighting not just to stay alive, but to find each other in a land that now belongs solely to the dead.

Slow start, Fantastic end!

I must admit I cried at one point in this book, which takes a lot.

it started ok, and I was thinking this series may not be as momentous as Peter's other series, but it ramped up quickly and I loved the end so well, that i am upset that I have to wait for the next one. Can you please clone yourself and work on all of these series at the same time??

Peter did it again!

What a great addition to the series. I LOVE how the zombies are made and how the author tells things from their (paranoid) point of view as well. Another great book in another great series by Mr. Meredith. I can't wait for his next ones!

Y'all

The thing that kept me from giving 5 stars was the use of Y'all by the southern dad and daughter. Y'all is used when speaking of multiple people not a single person..... " You all (Y'all) are gonna turn into zombies!

Now I'm just angry!

I thought the first book was great, something different finally. I thought the same of the second book until 1/2 way through and started getting a little bit aggravated that it was the same over and over but it was still mostly good. I'm now on chapter 12 of this book (book 3) and I'm about to pull my hair out! It's like listening to books 1&2 all over again, there's NO progression into what happens after, it's just the continuation of the initial zombie apocalypse and random people all over the place getting turned but they're not even part of the story, poof, someone is attacked and turned in some random town and then you never hear about them and everyone they turn again. We get it, it's all zombie apocalypse, we know how it spreads, stop beating us over the head with it just to sell a book!! And there's barely any focus on the main characters,you know, the ones we started with back in book 2 that we actually care about hearing what's happening with them?! It's all just to fill pages of a book with absolutely nothing different!! Ugh! Sorry for my rant, I'm trying to get through this thing since I already invested the time and money into the first 2 but I don't know if I'm going to make it without really losing my patience and temper..... more so that is 😕
