Scared the crap out of my boyfriend with the cover!
Disclaimer: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
It's actually happened: the zombie apocalypse is among us. Caused by a virus spreading exponentially through the population, it looks
like there's no end in sight. Chad Halverson, however, is going to do his best to make it out alive. See, he knows exactly how this all
started, and the government--his own co-workers, in fact--want him dead for that knowledge. Meanwhile, the President and his council
are holed up in Mount Weather, ready to make some chilling decisions that will affect the entire world. Who will win, who will lose, and
will we ever be the same again?
I thought this was a captivating book. The characters are intriguing; the story is one that could eventually happen, what in this day of
germ warfare and other craziness; and the general tone of the book is depressing but hopeful at the same time. Jumping back and
forth between Chad's group and those at Mount Weather was a very neat concept, as you could see what was REALLY going on in the
world versus what the government fat-cats could see and were debating about. That group in itself was great; I felt like that's exactly
what would happen in a situation like this, and the ongoing tension and escalating tempers were just perfect.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good zombie story, but also for those who want to know just what the government
would do in this situation. I believe it's depicted quite accurately; will you?
