Five ordinary people must pay the price of survival at the end of the world.

A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection. As the world lurches toward the apocalypse, some of the Infected continue to change, transforming into horrific monsters.

In one American city, a small group struggles to survive. Sarge, a tank commander hardened by years of fighting in Afghanistan. Wendy, a cop still fighting for law and order in a lawless land. Ethan, a teacher searching for his lost family. Todd, a high school student who sees second chances in the end of the world. Paul, a minister who wonders why God has forsaken his children. And Anne, their mysterious leader, who holds an almost fanatical hatred for the Infected.

Together, they fight their way to a massive refugee camp where thousands have made a stand. There, what's left of the government will ask them to accept a mission that will determine the survival of them all--a dangerous journey back onto the open road and into the very heart of Infection.

Amazing apocalypse
December 29th, 2014
This was the first zombie apocalypse novel I have read that was so unique it felt like I had never heard of zombies before. I read it cover to cover in two days and can't wait to get onto the second book. The characters were not only relatable and likable but diverse and magnificent. The story line was perfect. There were no plot flaws and i could imagine each scene as if i was watching it on the big screen. Perfect opening for a sequel and it leaves that "I want more" taste in your mouth. There were a few spelling errors but due to the magnitude of love I have for this book I can easily look past its one flaw. An amazing read and a beautifully terrifying take on the normal end of the world.
