Description

Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so. There was a time known as the Grind—when Freeman's people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as "Master." They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war.

And lost.

Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bites, sweeping through the population. Those infected are propelled to violence, driven to disperse the virus. Uniquely suited to respond to this new threat, Freeman searches for a cure, but instead finds the source—the Masters, intent on reclaiming the world. Freeman must fight for his life, for his friends and for the truth, which is far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.

Robinson's lightning fast, cutting-edge novels have won over thriller, horror, science-fiction and action/adventure fans alike, and he has received high praise from peers like James Rollins, Jonathan Maberry, and Scott Sigler. XOM-B is a wildly inventive zombie novel with a high-tech twist that will keep readers guessing until the very last sentence.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 24, 2014 – In the prologue, set in 2052, of this solid zombie thriller from Robinson (Island 731), 10 attack helicopters wipe out unarmed protesters near Manhattan's Grand Central Station in what's billed as a preemptive strike intended to kill them "before they even think about killing us." Delaying the reveal of who exactly is attacking whom works, and the mystery continues as the action moves forward a year and a scientist steals a vial with a virus that could kill billions. The main action, set in 2074, focuses on the struggles of a narrator with the portentous name of Freeman to survive an onslaught of zombies with the aid of a protector, Heap, whom Freeman has never seen without an elaborate exoskeleton. Freeman knows little about his world or its immediate past, when beings known as the Masters enslaved humanity. The resolution isn't the author's strongest, and the escaping the undead scenes get a bit repetitive.

Customer Reviews

A whole new Zombie Genre

XOM-B

Jeremy Robinson has done it again. You think you know Zombies? Are you a fan of everything The Walking Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead – Zombies. Well take everything you think you know about them and throw it out the window. I love everything Zombie and didn’t think I could really be shown anything new. How wrong I was!
How about adding in some Robots? What? Robots and Zombies! Yeah figure that one out! Jeremy has come up with a flash bang of a story line.

I could not put this book down! I read until the wee hours of the morning then only slept for a couple of hours because I just had to know what was going to happen to Freeman and Luscious! Where would they end up next? I loved Luscious’s character! Watching her overcome her internal wiring to become the woman she thought she wanted to be was inspired. As her feelings for Freeman grow so too does her wonder at Freeman and more importantly herself and what she is becoming.

Just when you think you have this book figured out – BAM! Something to make you second guess what you thought was going on. Jeremy is a master at twist, twist, twisting the plot of a novel. This book is a great read and I am going to be telling all my friends they need to go get it!
