Overview

BOOK 3 IN THE BLACK TIDE RISING SERIES FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR. Sequel to To Sail a Darkling Sea and Under a Graveyard Sky. A hardened group of survivors fights back against a zombie plague that has brought down civilization.

With the world consumed by a devastating plague that drives humans violently insane, what was once a band of desperate survivors bobbing on a dark Atlantic ocean has now become Wolf Squadron, the only hope for the salvation of the human race. Banding together with what remains of the U.S. Navy, Wolf Squadron, and its leader Steve Smith, not only plans to survive—he plans to retake the mainland from the infected, starting with North America.

The next step: produce a vaccine. But to do that, Wolf Squadron forces led by Smith’s terrifyingly precocious daughters Sophia and Faith must venture into a sea of the infected to obtain and secure the needed materials. And if some of the rescued survivors turn out to be more than they seem, Smith just might be able to pull off his plan.

Once more, exhausted and redlining Wolf Squadron forces must throw themselves into battle, scouring the islands of the Atlantic for civilization's last hope.

About the Black Tide Rising Series:
"Not only has Ringo found a mostly unexplored corner of the zombie landscape, he's using the zombie frame to tackle a broader theme: the collapse and rebirth of civilization. The zombie scenes are exciting, sure, but its the human story that keeps us involved. A fine series."—Booklist

About Under a Graveyard Sky:
“Ringo combines humor and horror in this strong series debut, the thinking reader’s zombie novel.”—Publishers Weekly

Meet the Author

John Ringo brings fighting to life. He is the creator of the Posleen Wars series, which has become a New York Times best-selling series with over one million copies in print. The series contains A Hymn Before Battle, Gust Front, When the Devil Dances, Hell’s Faire and Eye of the Storm. Adding another dimension to his skills, Ringo created nationally best-selling techno-thriller novels about Mike Harmon (Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain, Unto the Breach, A Deeper Blue, and, with Ryan Sear, Tiger by the Tail). His techno-thriller The Last Centurion was also a national bestseller. A more playful twist on the future is found in novels of the Looking-Glass series: Into the Looking Glass, Vorpal Blade, Manxome Foe and Claws That Catch, the last three in collaboration with Travis S. Taylor. His audience was further enhanced with four collaborations with fellow New York Times best-selling author David Weber: March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few. There are an additional five collaborative spinoffs from the Posleen series: The Hero, written with Michael Z. Williamson, Watch on the Rhine, Yellow Eyes and The Tuloriad, all written with Tom Kratman, and the New York Times bestseller Cally’s War and its sequels Sister Time and Honor of the Clan, all with Julie Cochrane. In addition, Ringo is the author of military science fiction series Troy Rising with entries Live Free or Die, The Hot Gate, and Citadel. His science-based zombie apocalypse Black Tide Rising series includes Under a Graveyard Sky, and To Sail a Darkling Sea. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, Ringo brings first-hand knowledge of military operations to his fiction.

    I have enjoyed this series immensely. His books are better when he leaves his politics at home and doesn't openly show his disdain for people who don't have his political views. In this series I think he accomplishes that for the most part.

    Not your typical zombie novel!

    Great character development and action scenes. This story is focused on the post-apocolyptic story. It is fascinating to watch them try to patch a world back together from only 1% oc the population while trying to also clear out the overwhelming number of zombies. Can't wait for the .ext book in February 2015!

    Best book of the series so far, and the last two were excellent!

    Several more characters added, and a few lost..
    My real and only complaint is the book only lasted me 3 days, even with trying to *save it for later*. I'm torn between wanting it to keep going another 100 pages and not having the next book out for a year OR, enjoying the post coital satisfaction of a well written story that ended - temporarily - on a good note, and knowing the next round will be out in just a few (and it BETTER be few, John!) short months. <sigh..> hard decisions.

    Character development is much more intensive this round - but still with plenty of action included. In this book we get a realistic insight to the 'politics of the aftermath'. Something generally lacking from most stories of this genre. Heroic actions by those that were there are many times 2nd guessed by political figures who were not there. Ringo includes interesting look at the massive undertaking to keep not only a flotilla afloat, but in keeping the hard won areas free of the enemy, both political and undead (which sometimes had me wondering if, in some cases, they weren't the same thing!).


    I highly recommend the book, BUT, you really want to read the two books previous to this one. I believe that after 15 or 20 pages of the first book, you will find you are drawn into the story, and knowing there are at least two more books out for your reading pleasure just.. makes it that much sweeter.

    Pure John Ringo. Think in the style of the "Kildar"(without all the unnecessary sex stuff), the "Centurion", and the "Hot Gate" series, and is still, the most realistic and plausible "zombie apocalypse" (ZA) idea I have ever read or seen in a movie or on television. Where infections happen because of a virus that takes hours, days, even weeks to overcome a person - NOT just a few seconds. AND infected can die, on their own from lack of water, food, or violence. That muscles still work, hearts still pump blood, all of which is required for the human body to still function. Bodies that are able to cease functioning by dehydration, lack of a fuel/food source or loss of limbs or head.

    A truly satisfying read.

    Good sequel

    Pretty much as expected on style and format. I've been wondering why the delay in vaccine production, and the book tries to address that but I get the feeling that biotechnology is not the author's forte. More mention is made of PTSD in survivors, but the actual syndrome goes beyond bad dreams to affect waking function by forcing trigger avoidance, intruding into normal thought process, and degrading combat efficiency. These points aside, the story seems to work and the book is entertaining.

    Every book in tis series has been wonderful.  There are a lot of zombie books out there but very few are entertaining 
    It has left me conflicted. I cannot wait for the next book but I do NOT want this series to end.

    Same zombie apocalypse ass kicking as the last two

    Still engaging & entertaining in the same way as earlier books in the series. I wouldn't start with this one, and if you liked earlier books you'll also like this one.

    Hell has no fury!

    It is a great book, but I fear this is an other cliff hung group of books. So please tell me after five books, it will stop. DEAD!
