    I loved the book! The story was very good and had a lot of actio

    I loved the book! The story was very good and had a lot of action. There were a lot of zombies and a lot of pounding, chopping, slicing, shooting, and chases.

    I promise to keep it rather brief and try not to spoil it for anyone.

    Not only did the characters in the story have zombies and bad guys to battle, but some of their own issues too. They didn’t get through every encounter without consequence, and that presented more challenges and issues for them to deal with. Some of them made it, some didn’t. While most were in their mid to late teens, the main characters ranged in age from 9 to 30 something, and were from different walks of life. Besides a lot of gross and gore, the author added some sexual content to the story, as it is a normal part of life. The scenes were descriptive and acceptable for an adult zombie novel, but didn’t cross over into erotica. I liked the epilogue, it provided a nice close for this book, but left the story open for the series.

    I rate this book to be between 4 and 5 stars, but since there isn't a 4.5 option, I gave it a 5. If you like good zombie action books, I recommend you read it.

    waste of time...

    Sad waste of time... The plot is weak and involves teenagers getting frisky moments after their parents or friends are torn apart by zombies. As far as zombie stories go -- this one was weak...

    Zombie fan

    A good read but not the best zombie book out their. At time kind of felt like all the characters were in JR high school, to much worrying about weather the cute guy likes me or not. It did have some good action but if you want a real great zombie book check out Day by Day Armagettan or Patient Zero
