With Juice in heavy contact on the do-or-die shore mission, Ali in a blistering sniper duel over the South Atlantic, and Homer all alone and massively outnumbered deep beneath the keel of the JFK, the Alpha operators are in the fight of their lives - against tactically outstanding, pain-invulnerable, and utterly merciless Spetsnaz commandos and with no guarantees about who will be left standing at the end....

As Good as Anything Before It In This Series

At the end of the previous book (Death of Empires) I was quite worried that this series was starting to meander and lose its way. Too much character introspection, seemingly pointless flashbacks and scarcely any progression of the story. It seemed a shame as I’ve long regarded this series as something of a guilty pleasure. It had non-stop action, tough, detailed characters and an interesting take on the zombie genre but the slow, seemingly disjointed pace of that previous book put considerable doubts in my mind.

So, would Death of Empires mark the death of a fine series? Hell no! This is as good as anything that has gone before it. The action concentrates a bit more on human opponents in the shape of Russian special forces but don’t worry the Dead have their say too. It continues at breakneck speed in the air, under the water and on land. It spans continents and oceans. This book really is a breathtaking achievement and I doubt many will need me to tell them that the narration by R.C. Bray is a masterclass of urgent, post-apocalyptic story-telling. Does anyone do this much better?

A final tempting thought at the time of writing is that once again the production ends with a teaser of the next book in the series. Does this mean we won’t have to wait too long for the next one? I for one can’t wait.
