The United States of America is falling before the armies of the dead. Leading the sole survivors of the US Army's 10th Mountain Division out of the overrun city of New York, Captain Phil Hastings heads for the safety of Fort Indiantown Gap, a National Guard training facility deep in the woodlands of Pennsylvania. Joining with other remnants of the military, government, and civilian communities, Hastings and his men must try to keep the tsunami of corpses from taking over the world and plan the resurrection of the nation.

The story is fine but nothing special, the role of women is pretty tedious and the treatment of us liberals is also a little needless but over all of you like military zombie fiction, which I do, you'll probably enjoy this.

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

genuinely refreshing piece of zombie fiction. I get tired of the hyper military gun porn with varying degrees of libertarian philosophy sprinkled in.

reading a zombie book about human surviving the End by being humane and particle with out focusing entirely on revenge and trying to amp up the violence to the nth degree was a very enjoyable read.

my only criticism is that it gets a little mills and boon towers the end with hyperbolic declarations of love. that's probably just a bit pick and it really didn't affect the story or hamper the read but all in all an enjoyable book.
