A team of scientists return after an expedition carrying a virus that they soon succumb to. Only it doesn’t stop with them. An unrelenting plague is set on mankind and the race is on to not only survive, but to find out if what’s left of humanity have any chance of stopping it.

Pro: The pacing of this read was engrossing and action-packed. The plot didn’t plateau like a lot of zombie tales, giving you time to become bored or uninterested. Something was always going on.

Con: The characters were solid, if a little immature at times. Two of them come to mind. One was an adventurous teen and the other a woman who seemed almost bipolar; going from rage-shouting to agreeable without notice. I felt their acting was sometimes outrageous and done at particular times as to move the scenes along.

Note: I also wish we could have read more about the scientific aspects of the “virus” to help the reader better understand what was going on. We were just as clueless as the characters in the book until the latter part of the book.

Pro: Gore. There was plenty of it to go around. Maybe too much for some folks, but that’s just the way I like it.

Overall, this was a pleasantly bloody good read.

I look forward to finding out what is to become of the survivors.
