Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

Keith Blackmore is one of my new favorite writers. I just finished every book in the Mountain Man series and my only regret is not reading them slower!
Keith writes in a way that is just pure raw, dark, thrilling and often hilarious. I absolutely love the writing style in this series and the journey Keith takes you through is out of this world.
I particularly love the way Keith captures the first person view of different characters throughout the series. Looking at the world through the eyes and mind of a serial killer and others is captured in such a real and exciting way that is rare to find.
I know there probably won't be another Mountain Man book in this series, but I'll still keep my fingers crossed!
I tried this author because I like syfy & horror and because I got a free short story to read. I'm not trying to do a NY times review here with all the descriptives. I've been reading for pleasure for a long time. Blackmore's work is good. Good enough for me to buy more. Does anything else really need saying? D
Zombies and more
Once again I get the feeling that zombies are the least of the worries at the end of the world! This was a good book , that was great in the last 100 pages. I kinda foresaw the bad stuff at the end, but that's ok. Looking foreword to reading the rest of the series.
