Finally! This entire 14+ book series is genre-changing. This....this is what a zombie apocalypse looks like. Hard, capable, violent, caring, professional, and even funny, people coming together and standing side by side to fight a never-ending but changing global-ending virus. Military spec-ops vs zombies. Aircraft carrier vs zombies. Fighter jets and tactical warheads vs zombies. Apache gunships, tanks, and MRAPs vs zombies. All to create time for science to fight the billions of meat-eating staggering, sometimes-running/jumping/sprinting walking dead trying to eat them and their loved ones. At the centre of it all, a small tight-knit group of the most professionally-capable warriors stand together, cracking jokes and staying not only human but humane. I have never been so eager to voraciously read so many books so quickly. Even after 14 books, I wanted more. Fortunately...there is more. Hey Amazon! Netflix! Anyone! Get this pinnacle of the zombie genre onto the TV screen ASAP. This series changes it all.
I like that this deviates from the normal formula of what happens when the world goes to s***! This book is set 2 years post the world going viral. My rating is based on the fact that the author assumes that we know about the millitary. Some may, and maybe if you know more about the environment in which it is set, it would be more of of a page turner. I am spending a lot of my time working out what the letters stand for, even though the first time they are mentioned, the words are given in full. My only word to the wise is that in the synopsis, state that you need knowledge of the millitary.
I highly recommend this series. It's well written and fast paced. The characters are well developed, making you become emotionally invested in them. This series, set two years after a viral infection had changed the majority of the worlds population, is written from a military perspective as they try to find hope for the future of humanity.
Not one for reading military fiction, i gotta say i loved this book. It had everything i like. Zombies with a twist in that genre, a bit of bromance and a whole lot of twists and turns. This is a must read for those who love a book that they cant put down. For those who love a book that takes them out of their comfort zone and puts them right there in the action.
