    Military must read Book

    The book took my interest right off, I really enjoyed the military language, it reminded me of my military days.

    I hope the Author decides to right another one, and keeps the series going. I would like to know more about the Brown's, and the rest of the team.

    I would recommend this to everyone that has military back ground and anyone that likes military adventure.

    From the Author

    Hello Everyone,

    I have written this book as something to do in my spare time. I hope those of you that have read it, liked it. At this time I have hired a Professional Editor, and will re-release it when that is finished.

    The second book is in the works. I hope to have it out for everyone to read by the end of June, or middle of July. My editor will help me with that.

    A little about me, I am retired Army, I love this genre, and love to write. Please be gentle, but review it by what you think.

    G. R. Mountjoy

    Mr. Mountjoy really tries to give the reader everything at once:

    Mr. Mountjoy really tries to give the reader everything at once: zombies, time travel, a commando story and post-apocalyptic world rebuilding. He comes agonizingly close to pulling it all off. With a bit more detail- the book is too short- this might have been an instant cult classic.

    A mixed team of different high speed operators are assembled for a “secret project” that lands them 3 years into the future… just after the zombie apocalypse. They spend surprisingly little time worrying about that, shrug their shoulders and set off on a mission across the country to link up with the remnants of the US Government. Along the way they slaughter zombies by z-bucket full, of course. Where it gets really interesting is how they unite various bandit and survivor groups and inspire hope in the pockets of the scattered human resistance. A fun improvement to the simple survival tale.

    What’s disappointing is that you never feel the warriors are in real danger. They’re armed to the teeth, are always conveniently given excellent intel ahead of trouble and are just way too lucky.

    Now, the action is incredibly fast paced and does flow quite naturally, but when that speed is combined with the lack of real stress for the heroes I just couldn’t get really excited or emotionally invested. That said, the author’s character dialogue is spectacular. Earthy and real, without being over-the-top macho. I bet they’ll remind you closely of people you know.

    All in all, an entertaining read. The flaws are not deal breakers; this book is worth the time. This book is one heck of a teaser for the rest of the series. I’ll most definitely read the next one.

    I can't in good faith give this book any higher rating than two

    I can't in good faith give this book any higher rating than two stars. While the idea and potential for this story were great, the book itself just didn't deliver. The characters are extremely weak with almost no depth whatsoever. It seriously reads like an after action report. Which makes sense given the authors inexperience with professional writing and his history in the military. The exchanges between characters are bland and there is almost no emotion other than the liberal use of exclamation points. I frequently felt like I was reading some boring textbook entry at times rather than a story about such exciting topics as time travel, special operations, and Zombies!
    All in all, I don't regret spending the $4 for the book but I don't really see myself ever recommending it to others. Perhaps with a little more experience under his belt, the author will be able to give his awesome plot ideas some real justice.
