My rating: (5 / 5)
I’m kinda fascinated by the zombie genre in general, but this particular series is a little different from most. Instead of focusing on the zombie apocolypse, this book begins twenty five plus years after it occured. Life has pretty much gone back to normal. Except, of course, for the virus that everyone carries around dormant in their cells, and which turns them into the walking dead once they bite it. Or once something bites them, as the case may be.
George and her brother Shaun are bloggers, part of a new breed of journalists that sprang up in the aftermath of the zombie wars, when people lost their trust in traditional media outlets after they were slow to tell people the truth of the situation they were in. They have been selected to follow a candidate on his campaign trail as he makes a bid for president. And along the way, they fight big badass zombies, freaky political terrorists, and occasional random bad guys.
It’s action packed. It’s fun as hell. It’s a great read.
