Sunday, May 22nd, 2022,This is the day the horseman's plague escaped its internment. Not by the devil's hand but by mine, and by those who aided us in our expedition.The contagion spread from a tomb in Rome into Germany, and within weeks consumed all of Europe's mainland, leading to a global military effort to contain the outbreak. But the virus survived, and the pharmaceutical company that procured the strand, too powerful to infiltrate.It only took a few months before the infected emerged along the Eastern Shoreline of the United States. Coastal Quarantine Zones were established, but they were not prepared. No one was. No one had been. And no one was intended to be.But as I sit here in a familiar home, embarking on a new expedition, trying to right my wrongs, I realize my chance of survival is slim against a virus that has evolved into something more instinctual, more sophisticated, than the mindless undead that rose from the tomb they were condemned to.

Evolution A200: A Bubonic Apocalypse based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I liked it. I'm not crazily in love with this story but it moves fast enough and has twists interesting enough to keep the reader's attention. It's not perfect, the beginning is slightly confusing but other than that I can't see a reason not to recommend it to others.
Evolution A200 is a very fast-starting zombie story that had some interesting and unusual turns to it. It starts out with a group of mostly well-intentioned archeologists excavating the tomb of Romulus, the founder of Rome. Four months later, all of Europe has gone dark and there are rumors of the outbreak being seen on the eastern shores of the United States. A small town in Maine becomes the epicenter for a group of survivors that has to start figuring out what happened and what, if anything, can be done to save humanity. The questions just keep piling up... Did someone know that there might be something bad in the tomb of Romulus? How did the plague spread to the United States? Is there someone that has a cure for this? This was a decent, albeit short, zombie story that comes on quick and, unfortunately, ends just as quick. There are a lot of different takes on traditional zombie stories in this book: zombies that remember slights from their original life, a zombie virus that is not always fatal, and zombies that aren't mindless killing machines. My biggest issue with the entire story is that it just ends. I understand that this is going to be a part of a larger arc, but this doesn't really clear up much that was brought up during the story. It really just felt like the first half of a story. I will keep my eyes open for the next installment in this story; if anything just to finish up what I started. Thank you to Nathaniel Connors, BooksGoSocial, and NetGalley for the eARC of this book in exchange for my honest feedback.
