A riveting story of the world after a serious outbreak of zombies has begun to take over the world, with governments around the world building bunkers to house the most essential people to begin repopulating the world after the outbreak is over.
This is the first book about zombies I had ever read, and when I saw the description about it I was not sure this was something I would be tremendously interested in.
Having said that, this book is a riveting story of the world after a serious outbreak of zombies has begun to take over the world, with governments around the world building bunkers to house the most essential people to begin repopulating the world after the outbreak is over.
This is a long book, with many stories and locations woven in together. There is military intrigue, politics, romance, deception, mutiny, murder and a whole lot more.
This book is the second in the series of three (which I did not know before I finished the book). It explains at times the seeming familiarity that some characters had with others, and the missing connection made it more difficult to get aquatinted with new characters as they came on the scene.
The author could have split this book in two, and then would have had a quadrilogy!
This book switches point of view a few times from first person when the book is centred on the action at Bunker One, and we are seeing things from the perspective of Dave Blake, the XO of Alpha Squad – the bunker’s elite attack/defence team. He is the main protagonist of the book, and all the other stories if different bunkers, locations and teams are all interwoven around the main storyline of Mr. Blake, his wife and his team at Bunker One.
For those of you put off by the idea of zombies, then imagine instead the world is infected by a biological agent that is contagious by exchange of bodily fluids… It’s like a really pandemic of rabies…
I quite enjoyed the tome, and I look forward to reading book 1 and 3 in the series.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
