Publisher's Summary

In an apocalypse, there is definitely a beginning where mistakes are made and the seeds of evil are allowed to sprout and take shape. However, an end is not so certain. Once an apocalypse occurs, not even death is certain. Sometimes, death is only the beginning.
At first light that morning, Dr. Lee steps into the Walton facility on the first day of human trials and can barely contain her excitement. The labs are brand spanking new and everything is sharp and clean. They've been built to her specifications and are a scientist's dream. It's where cancer is going to be cured once and for all.
By midnight, it's a place of fire, of blood, and of death - a death that, like the apocalypse, is seemingly never ending.

Finally. What a great story.

This is great. The last 3 books I've purchased were so poorly written that I didn't finish them... But this one is outstanding with excellent narration. Very well thought out story. The zombies are cool... Actually gives perspectives from the zombies POV too! Honestly, this book is refreshing... Not just another predictable cookie cutter story with a main character that is annoying. Anyways, I listened the sample and it intrigued me, so I purchased the book. Very glad I did. It's one of those that has me wanting to listen even after my long drives are over.

What I absolutely love are the zombies!

Here is another apocalypse but true to Peter Meredith's other books, they start at inception. The reader gets to know exactly what happened and every nuance that proceeded to create such a deadly world. There is so much that could have went right but of course this is an apocalypse so we get to sit back, eat some popcorn, and enjoy the bloody show!

The plot and characters in this are fantastic. It is amazing to know that it is just ONE DAY. ONE freaking day! After everything that happened I completely lost track of time and did not add up that these poor scientists had been fighting for their lives for just a day. This just blows my mind.

What I absolutely love are the zombies! This is a rage type of virus that allows the person to continue thinking as the disease progresses. They first get paranoid but as the virus progresses, they get more and more agitated, until finally they want to start killing people. More importantly, they start wanting to taste flesh and warm blood. Even more interesting, if someone else gets the virus then they smell different and the zombies know they will not taste good!

The characters are as real as they can be. Both heroic and frightened, seeking their own way out of the quagmire while putting other lives at risk. This is what always intrigues me about apocalyptic and dystopian genres, people can be full of such grace or of such evil.

I had the pleasure of listening to this and the audio was spot on! The voices of the people as they become zombies are harsh and full of what sounds like phlegm and bile. I could even hear when people were fully scared of everything around them, like the scene in the bar. This scene has stayed with me for some reason. Having to be a waitress during an apocalypse sounds horrible!

If you enjoy horror, this is a must read! Very fast paced.
