This book is the first entry into a series that I can see becoming a big hit! I'm a sucker for military/zombie sci-fi and this book has everything you would expect from the genre. There's fun loving grunts, a mysterious virus that turns people into zombies (yet to be explained), a few bad ass leaders and people from almost every branch of the U.S. military! (which is awesome but it's missing an unflappable SAS guy because everyone loves a brit) but I digress, all in all this series has the potential to be a vast lore filled world. I can't wait to see where the authors take it.

Had this one for a while finally got round to listening to it. It’s brilliant. I like how it makes fighting the dead hard some books make it seem easy and mundane you get a real feel for a hard battle thought and lost a lot of the time

This was one of the most enjoyable audio books I've ever listened too. I was attached to the 10th Mountain Division while in the NY Army National Guard and the banter, camaraderie, and humor was spot on. Some reviewers are getting down on the way some of the characters were written but that's because they were never in and don't understand that the depicted humor is out of love and respect, not malice. Watch out for the yogurt joke near the end, you may crash your car! I can't wait for the next book!

So, my first thought: this story is very similar to the Arisen series by Michael Stephen Fuchs, but with a couple of key differences. 1. This zombie story takes place all in the US. 2. The military character personalities are very realistic and RC Bray does a FANTASTIC job of bringing them to life in a very realistic way. Either one of the authors is prior military or they did extension research and/or had access to some military personnel for reference. There were only a couple of things that bugged me about the overall writing of the book: the formality of radio communication was a little too formal, but towards the very end it did significantly improve. Another thing was that general military assets were not brought up that would certainly be brought up in real life... such as: status of NORAD, ability to use heavier aviation munitions (such as bombs). I mean the authors clearly covered the continuity of government and the succession of POTUS... so why not even mention the status of NORAD and the nuclear assets. The topic could have been brought up as a cliff hanger type deal.... but I digress. Fantastic book nonetheless. I sincerely hope that book 2 is not far in the future.
