As tattoo artist Star begins to ink her first client on a spring Sunday morning, something goes horribly wrong with the world...
Belfast's hung-over lapse into a deeper sleep than normal, their sudden deaths causing an unholy mess of crashing cars, smouldering televisions and falling aircraft. In the chaotic aftermath a group of post-apocalyptic survivors search for purpose in a devastated city. Ageing DJ Sean Magee and shifty-eyed Barry Rogan find drunken solace in a hotel bar. Ex-IRA operative Mairead Burns and RIR soldier Roy Beggs form an uneasy alliance to rebuild community life. Elsewhere, a mysterious Preacher Man lures shivering survivors out of the shadows with a promise of redemption.
Choked by the smell of death, Ireland's remaining few begin the journey toward a new life, fear and desperation giving rise to new tensions and dark old habits. But a new threat creeps slowly out of life's wreckage...

"A gritty drama... Do not miss!" (Liberation Frequency.)
An apocalyptic tale. Full of gore zombies and the odd sexual reference. I would like to say I enjoyed it, but really, I could have spent my time more wisely. Not great
Very engaging characters, very good narration, different twist on the style of book
totally different approach to the zombie story, based in northern Ireland gave it a totally different edge
A break from the American/English narrators, totally refreshing and suited the book perfectly
If you are looking for a refreshingly different take on the genre with good narration and involving characters, give this a go. The follow up is knock out and brutal, excellent.
