It’s been two years since the world ended. Two years since the dead rose and the plague of ex-humanity decimated mankind. For most of that time, the superhero called St. George, formerly known to the world as the Mighty Dragon, has protected the people of Los Angeles at their film-studio-turned-fortress, The Mount. Together with his fellow heroes - Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth - he’s tried to give the survivors hope and something like a real life. But the swollen population of The Mount is becoming harder and harder to sustain, and the heroes are feeling the pressure.
Hope arrives in the form of a United States Army battalion, based in a complex a few hundred miles away in Arizona. This is not just any base, however. The men and women of Project Krypton are super-soldiers, designed and created before the outbreak to be better, stronger, and faster than normal humans. They want the heroes and all the people of The Mount to rejoin America and have normal lives again.
But can the military be trusted? And is there even a country left to rejoin? There is a secret at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it have an awesome power that will help them keep that secret hidden. The power of Freedom.
BONUS SHORT STORY: Ex-Patriots includes "Codependent", one of four interlocking stories from The Junkie Quatrain by Peter Clines.

I love the zombie genre. However it is getting a little old and that fact is completely discarded in these three books. I couldn't wait to start the next one. When I read the description of the first book I thought it might be geared more towards teens given that the premise of the book is super Heroes fighting zombies, but the reviews were good enough that I tried the book anyway. It is not juvenile at all! I like the authors writing style too. He has another book I just read called Fourteen which is another fantastic read. No zombies in that one though.
can't wait for the 3rd
great book, lots of different characters with plenty of character development. (it plays fine someone just got a bad download) the reading cast was very good
Awesome story, but part two goes mute about three hours in... It plays fine, but there just isnt anymore noise. Talk about a cliffhanger.
