Five ordinary people must pay the price of survival at the end of the world. A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward the apocalypse, some of the Infected continue to change, transforming into horrific monsters. In one American city, a small group struggles to survive. Sarge, a tank commander hardened by years of fighting in Afghanistan. Wendy, a cop still fighting for law and order in a lawless land. Ethan, a teacher searching for his lost family. Todd, a high-school student who sees second chances in the end of the world. Paul, a minister who wonders why God has forsaken his children. And Anne, their mysterious leader, who holds an almost fanatical hatred for the Infected. Together, they fight their way to a massive refugee camp where thousands have made a stand. There, what's left of the government will ask them to accept a mission that will determine the survival of them all - a dangerous journey back onto the open road and into the very heart of The Infection.
I really got ino this story. Kind of expensive for a book, but overall not bad.
Good Story But Should Have Been Cheaper!
I liked this story, kinda like The Mist -vs- Dawn of the Dead.
I found this to be one of my favorite zombie/end of days books. The novel bounces from present to flashback but it delivers good depth and understanding to the characters and a window into their mentality. It also explores how the human mind and spirit may rise to the occasion or crumble into depression and madness when facing the horrors of this new world and the lose of what was.
