The horde is always hungry...
The zombie apocalypse has begun, and Major Cordell McDaniels is given the most important mission of his career: Lead a Special Forces team into New York City to rescue the one man who can stop the ghastly virus that reanimates the dead.
But as a growing army of flesh-eating corpses takes over the streets and a violent storm renders airborne extraction impossible, McDaniels struggles to find a way out of the Big Apple. The odds of anyone getting out alive plummet further when slaughtered members of his own Special Forces team join the ranks of the gathering dead... with their military skills intact!

what day by day armageddon 3 should've been
without giving too many spoilers, the staircase scene. definitely one of the scariest and creepiest in all zombie genre. really!
escape from new york, but that's already taken.i would say, "the insatiable horde," but that may sound too risque! lol
the horde is always hungry...that's doggone right! this is by far the best zombie horde book i've listened to so far. stephen knight frighteningly captures the sheer power of a zombie horde- its insatiable hunger, its relentless pursuit, its destructive carnage, and its fear inducing power.
the story opens with major cord mcdaniels leading a convoy of hummers up west 58th street towards central park. he and his team of special forces have been tasked with getting dr. sapphire to central park, where blackhawk helicopters are waiting to whisk him away.
i really dug the new york city angle. it offers a rare perspective- a zombie apocylapse unfolding in one of america's largest cities. most of the z-stories i've listened to lately have been based in small towns so i found this aspect refreshing.
this is a military style z-story told in the 3rd person. it reminded me of day by day armageddon series, and what i had hoped shattered hourglass would be. this story is an action-packed thrill ride. the author does a good job of pacing the story. the lulls in action allow for some character development. while there isn't a lot of backstory, which is understandable for this type of story, you do get a sense of each of the characters. i was impressed by professionalism displayed by the special forces soldiers amidst a zombie apocylapse. that seemed to add a layer of credibility to the story.
the narration is pretty good. it took a few minutes to get used to the gruffness of the narrator, but i was soon swept into the story. the narrator's voices and tones match the special forces soldiers he portrays.
overall, i really liked the story, especially b/c it's different than a lot of the other z-stories i've listened to lately. definitely worth your time and credit.
as a side note, there is a really cool gun in this story- an AA 12. it's a fully automatic shotgun. i've never heard of it before so i googled it. wow! great youtube video by a funny and crazy russian guy.
side note 2: to all the men and women who are are serving or have served...thanks for your service! yes, i'm one of those guys who'll approach anyone in a uniform and thank them for protecting my a$$ while i listen to z-books. lol
