Bravo! Awesome apocalyptic zombie read. Characters were perfectly depicted and yet some were lost but soon replaced. Of course the lost had to happen because a story like this would not have it any other way. I certainly gasp and terrified myself turning page after page, especially the source of the outbreak. Brilliant writing Mr.Jonathan Maberry. The fluency of action and tragedy to understand the characters were spot on. I really got into the fighting scenes very descriptive and strangely for me, exciting. Decisions have to be made, insane decision, all centered towards the infections, evacuations, humanity, plain and simple survival. The end, well let me say, surprisingly befitting. You know I have to read the next one. I won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz.
