The Dying of the Light: Beginning by Jason Kristopher

Enjoy the triumphant finale of the series that's been called the "best since World War Z!"

He awoke and, for the first time in almost twenty-five years, remembered who he was...

It's been 25 years since the zombie prion wiped out 99.998% of the human race, leaving a handful of souls cowering in concrete-and-steel bunkers beneath the surface of the United States. The walkers won, for a time, scouring the Earth clean of more than seven billion humans.

Now, it's time for those few to take back their home. Nothing is ever easy for the survivors, though, and they find that their biggest enemy is not the few remaining walkers, but instead, as always, each other. The terror that has haunted them all for nearly 30 years now has a face, and is threatening to unleash the worst nightmare yet on the few who remain.

A character-driven series similar to "The Walking Dead" on AMC, the first book, "The Dying of the Light: End" was a Top 5 Finalist in Kindle Book Review's "Best Indie Books of 2012" competition. The sequel, "Interval," was a Top 5 Finalist in 2013. A fourth companion volume, "The Walker Chronicles: Tales from The Dying of the Light," collects short stories from the world of the series and is being updated with new stories as they're released.

I first came across The Dying of the Light series at a Comic Convention in Houston a few years ago when I stumbled upon a table with the books and posters for the series. Sitting at the table was the author Jason Kristopher, who has a personality that is as pleasant as his writing is talented. Seeing the book was about Zombies, I picked it up to peruse. I opened it to the inside, read one stanza, and knew I was hooked by his writing style. After I purchased it, Kristopher graciously signed it and wrote a Zombie related inscription inside. That was the first book, The Dying of the Light: End, and I have awaited each book with anticipation since. The third and final installment has finally arrived and it delivers the same punch as the previous two. The first book was how the world fell to the zombie apocalypse and what the survivors faced. The second book appropriately titled, The Dying of the Light: Interval, chronicles the continuing struggle of the survivors and what they do to ensure the survival of humanity. The third book, "Beginning" is set 23 years into the apocalypse and follows the continuing struggle of humanity to find a cure to the zombie plague, and set itself on top again. The survivors though are impeded by fellow humans who have ambitions of their own, and the emergence of a super-type zombie who doesn't die as easily (The Dreibachs). There are enough plot twist to keep the reader engrossed and guessing as to how it will end. (or begin) Kristopher has continued the exciting quest of the survivors and it was worth the wait. This book can be read individually and enjoyed as the reader is able to discern past events through Kristopher's exposition, but to get a full appreciation of the series, it is worth the readers time to invest in the first two books as well. We can only hope that Kristopher keeps the stories coming in this setting. A great read and guaranteed not to disappoint.
