A New World: Takedown by John O'Brien

The Dice Are Cast...
Death Watches and Waits

The sanctuary walls were breached and through them poured screaming hordes of night runners. About to be overrun, the survivors formed a last stand against the thousands that threatened to end their existence. Inexplicably, the night runners, who were on the verge of taking one of the last vestiges of humanity, departed, carrying the limp body of Lynn with them.
Communications with the compound failed as Jack was out searching for additional survivors, leaving him unaware of what was happening at home. A tragedy sends him rushing back where he learns about the attack and Lynn being taken. Not knowing if she's alive or dead, he sets off in search for her.
A mysterious image is sent setting forth a confrontation with Sandra, the female night runner responsible for the attack on the sanctuary. Is Lynn alive or is this some elaborate trap? Jack will put everything on the line in order to find out.

When logical reasoning fails...
Insanity must be expected

I finished reading A New World 10 book series by John O'Brien. This series is so good and exciting and unique, I will have to read it again after I get caught up with other books on my reading list. I'm going to miss all my good friends who are characters in the books. If you like the zombie/horror genre, I highly recommend this series.

Written with an authoritative voice of one who has been in the military and seen action, O'Brien brings the post-apocalyptic future into a believable reality for readers. Mixing authentic references and real responses with fictional situations, he draws a reader in while extending a little bit of military education to those who have never served. Despite being military focused, there is enough emotional moments to pull on a reader's heart. Only warning is to start with book one or you will not understand all of the character development and back story to trip appreciate and enjoy this one.

Just gets better and better. One hell of a series!!, I just finished this, the 7th book in 'The New world' series. I turned off my Kindle, GOT OUT OF BED AND TURNED ON MY PC so I could write this review. It's 3 in the morning!!! Damn book got me so pumped!! Mr. O'Brien gets you, puts you on a tightrope, the stress is incredible, and just when you think you're finally safe on the ground, the earth opens under your feet. Don't know whether to hit him in the nose or kiss him. (I've seen his picture, so I would have to kiss him) What an incredible man this author is. Read his bio, and then read this series from the beginning. Each book gets better and better. You will love the characters and the survival ideas they come up with. Oh, I forgot to mention the zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. This is not your run-of-the-mill Zombie Apocalypse series either. There is a twist in this story that makes it stand out. If you're curious, you'll have to buy the book. Just buy the first one and soon you'll understand, and you won't have to wait with bated breath for the next one like I did. You'll be able to devour, at least, 7 of them in a row. And yes, so can I by just rereading them, and I have; I'm pretty sure I will again. There is nothing I love more then reading a book good enough to immerse me in its world. So I feel I owe Mr. O'Brien a debt of gratitude for letting me hang out with Jack et al.
