I started reading this book last night. The suspense and action grabs you right from the beginning. I was enthralled with Bryan Cassiday's writing from page one. It's definitely a good read for anyone who likes zombies.

A decent Zombie apocalypse horror novel.  I liked the book overall and recommend it to readers who like zombie apocalypse novels.  It had a good plot and the characters were well developed.  I won't go into the details of the story to so not to spoil it for you.  I found that it was real page turner.

I could not stop myself from editing this book. The story is an interesting idea but the writing lacks in many areas. The author uses weird words such as "twigging" , "fuscous", "restive", "scrim", "wended", "debouched", "nonplussed", "imbroglio", "wizened", "athwart", "balustrade", "spalls", "glommed", and "rictus" throughout (I made an extensive list of these words in the back of the book as I read), goes into great detail about small, unimportant things and people unnecessarily which seems to detract from rather than add to the storyline, assumes the reader knows what he's talking about which made me lose track from time to time and have to reread, assumes the reader has a vast, working knowledge of guns, and makes it hard to discern at times which character is speaking. I think the author went crazy with a thesaurus. It's ridiculous. There are also a few characters that popped up that the author never introduced. For example, (from page 31: "Me too," said Hatchet Face. Who is that? This person was never mentioned previous to this (except when they said one other thing). The author tries to way too hard to keep "Halverson" as the main character rather than accepting the fact that there are several main characters to follow. He would add (from page 36) things such as "...Halverson noted..." at the end of a sentence at random as if no one else in the group noticed anything. The story would shift from focusing on the entire group to what Halverson noted at the end of a sentence. It's weird and confusing. I couldn't help editing the entire book as I read. We had to know the age, sex, facial details, hair color, hair style, physical attractiveness, brand name and color of clothes, height, and weight of every zombie they killed. Also, the zombies were called "ghouls". Zombies are not ghouls. Ghouls grave-robbers who eat corpses. Zombies prefer to eat living people. They are not the same thing. I like the idea of this story. The execution sucks. If anyone has a good address that I could sent my "edited" copy of this waste of time to the author, that would be great.
