It was a warm summer morning when the dead began to rise up and feast upon the living. The city was overrun in a matter of hours.

The military acted immediately. They closed all the exits leading out of the area in order to contain the outbreak. They shot anyone trying to escape.

Their methods were successful. The outbreak was contained, but all hope for the people trapped behind the gates . . . had been lost.

The EPUA website was the only form of communication still available to the survivors. It was there that the legend of the General began to take root. He was a hero that fought back against the zombies . . . a hero that saved lives. The survivors once again found something to believe in, but the rest of the world wondered if the man truly existed.

They were about to find out.

The fifteen minutes of footage was leaked onto the internet only minutes after it was filmed. It showed a single man standing between a horde of zombies and a group of frightened survivors. What happened next was amazing . . . and it made the world believe. Because within those fifteen minutes of footage, the man known only as the General stepped out of legend and entered reality.

This is his story.

"If you like zombie novels and action movies this is a truly fun read... Has a couple truly epic moments� of glory that raised some hair on the back of my head. All A type goofballs should enjoy." John

"Love the Interview style of narration. Well structured sentences and word choice. Loved every minute of this." Ian Umholtz

"...My favorite thing about this book is the star of the show, a character named Jaxon (or in certain circles, the General). This character is a new kind of hero. A hero weighted down by some interesting flaws, BUT and i can't stress this enough, you actually like the guy even more because of his flaws. He's arrogant, sometimes rude and somewhat reckless but if i were in hostile territory and surrounded by zombies, he's the guy i would want coming to save me!" Zombiefan

"I do have to say that this book took me by surprise - I just figured it would be another zombie book. In fact as I was browsing through books I had come across this one many times and just passed on it because both the description and the cover didn't really pop. Well the old saying to "never judge a book by its cover" is so correct what I thought was just an initial zombie story of one man leading a group to safety and overcoming both the zombie horde and his own government well I was wrong." ROgden

"Absolutely loved this book, read it in one day." Sussy Q

"I really loved this zombie novel. It has such an original plot in The Guardian concept, and it was wonderful how the author developed that concept throughout the book. I am definitely looking forward to the sequel...Our hero Jax is one of those ornery guys who likes to do things his way, and his way means never giving up on people. Jax does not walk away, ever. When that kind of mind set collides with a zombie apocalypse in El Paso, well, look out!" New Yorker

"Really fast paced book and I enjoyed the hell out of it." Zombie309

"I really enjoyed this book. Chain of events is interesting and fun, the characters are dynamic, and the action is non-stop." Babymamma08

"No shortage of talent here. Clary has created a host of believable characters led by his protagonist "The General". And he has left it hanging to be open to all types of evil things for the general and his team." S. Coyle

Written as if the hero is being interviewed at a later date, after the events have already unfolded, the story is engaging and fast paced. No one knows why this man can do what he does and where his powers come from, not even his best friends, but whether he likes it or not, he is the hero people need in this horror that has arisen. No question, he is a zombie killing machine.....but how? How and why did this zombie outbreak occur....who or what is responsible? There are elements in the story that promise answers will come later in the series, but for now just enjoy the battles, close calls and zombie mayhem.

Took me a couple months to read this. I found the main character, Jaxon, to be too much of a super hero. To invulnerable. The zombie apocolypse, on any scale, should present some kind of challenge. Sorry. Wouldn't recommend.

Enjoyed both the action and humor. Can tell there is so much more to explore in this world. Some of the character background sacrificed for action but may come if series grows,also it does not distort the crux of the story just the nuance of some of the characters. Look forward to mre in this world
