Overview

The end of the world is only the beginning.

Zombies are on the loose and the world is falling apart. In the tradition of apocalyptic novels such as Stephen King’s THE STAND, a group of strangers on a Manhattan subway are brought together in the name of survival. The group follows the lead of Ari Brenner, a young man who doesn’t recognize his own leadership qualities and believes they follow him simply because he wears an army uniform. Lila Teske, a college student studying philosophy, finds her non-violent beliefs tested in the crucible of a zombie attack. There are other members of the diverse group, but the focus of the story is on Ari and Lila, two young people who learn about sacrifice and inner strength through the ordeal.

With the city’s infrastructure down and communication with the outside world curtailed the survivors head toward the nearest marina. When they meet a lab tech who may have a solution to the virus, they know his safety is paramount and it’s more important than ever that they get off the island. But zombies aren’t the only danger that impedes them on their perilous journey.

Newly edited version. Includes correction concerning the impossibility of purchasing firearms in a sporting good shop in NYC. (I'm from MI. Who knew a person couldn't walk into any local Gander Mountain and buy a rifle?)

    So-so

    The first half is pretty good- action, suspense, spooky. Then the second half turns into romance and all forward momentum flies out the window. The core group separates stupidly letting the weaker members go off with two new guys that are proven d-bags? Then the book comes to an abrubt end with one.of the group bitten and them meeting up with a coast.gaurd patrol that may or may not be friendly. Unsure if there is to be a 2nd book to resolve things, and I dont really care.

    In desperate need of editing!

    I love the story line and it is easy to read aside from the horrible editing job! I'm one of those people who gets tripped up every time I see an error in a book. This is the worst editing job I've ever seen. I'm reading the nook version so perhaps that is why? Lots of "now"s instead of "no"s and "then"s instead of "than"s along with some missing words and lack of punctuation brings this book down from a 4 star to about a 2.5 star book for me.

    Pointless

    The book was mostly good, but at the end it failed big time! The charactors making stupid decisions they wouldnt make the rest of the book, and the end was terrible! Just left it totaly hanging. Frustrating doesnt begin to describe it, more like discusted. Waist of money.

    I loved the storyline

    But I got really annoyed with all the typign errors, or usage of wrong names..like she accidently started lusting after the wrong guy...Proofread please and the characters were alittle flat..I could not really imagine them because the descriptions are so vague..but the story line was really good and I enjoyed it, if you like romance and zombies(not together) then this book is a book for you!

    It is super exciting!

    Loved it!

    I love zombie apocalypse books, and I thought that this was a great one. The second book in this series is also another on that should be on your zombie must read list. Great survivalist, action packed book. Plenty of suspence and lots of zombies. I have to say it again loved it. I hope there is a third in this series.

    I really enjoyed this!

    I have been some what obsessing over zombie fiction lately. Dunno why. Regardless, I have read all of the Joe McKinney, Giangregorio and Fuchs on here (as well as many others) and I really liked this book and the next one. So. Yeah.

    CONTENT GOOD EDITING POOR

    I enjoyed this book for the most part, but as with a lot of ebooks, I had a difficult time getting past the grammatical mistakes and poor punctuation. All in all, it's a solid read and I'd recommend it as a great midnight page turner.

    Is there a half star on here? When I was eight or nine I begged

    Is there a half star on here? When I was eight or nine I begged my father to take me to see this new release. It was Night Of The Living Dead/ Ever since I have been hooked on this genre. I have even penned a few stories myself. With almost 50 years of enjoying this subject I can safely say this is one of the worse books I have ever read. Maybe it was meant to be a comedy. I knew I was in trouble when the group decides they should have bacon and eggs, in a diner, while the streets are crawling with flesh eaters. What author would think this was a good idea? I even tried book two (yes I am an idiot. ). Miss Dee, do us all a favor and stick to vampires or Harlequins. Thank you.

    Highly Recommend

    This book has it all! Survival, romance (some but not sickening), and of course zombies. The book grabs you from the beginning and does not let you go. Fast paced and exciting. I will definately be reading more by this author.

    Horrible ending

    Pretty good book but the ending fell flat. It was like the author decided to just stop writing and bail on writing the end. Unless she comes out with another book that finishes the story, I would not recommend. Her other zombie book does the same thing. Pretty disappointing. Stories were great but bad endings ruined them.
