Overview

They Outnumber The Living. . .

25 to 1. Those are the odds of being struck down--and resurrected--by the savage plague that's sweeping the country, forcing survivors to band together against the dead.

They're Growing Stronger. . .

Even among the living, there is dissention. A new leader known as the Red Man has risen up and taken charge--and he's nearly as dangerous as the hungry dead. Some, like Bob Richardson and his friends, strike out on their own. Because if the men with guns don't get them, the zombies will.

They're Getting Smarter. . .

Fleeing the cities, Richardson and his crew find sanctuary in an abandoned farm. But their stronghold may not be strong enough. Something strange and terrifying is happening to the undead. They're banding together. Working as a group. Hungering for a common goal: human flesh. And lots of it.

This is the 4th book in Joe McKinney's Dead World series and although it isn't absolutely imperative to the quality of the story to skip the other 3 books, the chemistry between some of the main characters will be lost on you if you do not read them first. I picked this book up and could not put it down. Joe is an exceptional writer and this story, as with the rest of the series, does not dissappoint! Since this is such a new book, I do not want to spoil any part of the story by going into details. Let's just say that during the rollercoaster ride that was this story, I was at times scared, thrilled, anxious, and at other times quite heartbroken. I found it very easy to identify with and become emotionally attached to some of the characters and oddly enough, wishing otheres would get eaten. Although the zombies appear to be on their last leg (both literally and figuratively), the older ones have begun using complicated tactics to hunt for their "food" and that in and of itself is terrifying! They are starving now and their hunger is almost tangible. The main characters just seemed to be cursed as they rolled from one bad situation to the next, barely missing one disaster, only to land square in the next, more intense disaster! Yet, you can't help but applaud their courage. There were some very poignant scenes in the book that actually made me stop and question my own purpose in life and the direction we are all headed. A great book does that! Makes you stop and think, draws you in to the story and makes you care about the outcome. Excellent book!

A small, petite girl with cocoa-colored skin, wavy brown hair, and catlike, warm brown eyes walked in. She was wearing only black leggings and a thin purple sweatshirt which you could easily see her ribs through. Seeing the others, she yelped and turned invisible.

He glanced briefly at where the girl had been, then resumed his work.

I liked this book the best out of the entire series. The characters some o which you already knew from the previous books were not quite as irritating or stupid as in the other books. It was for the most part a decent paced story.
