Publisher's Summary

Captain Nate Leathers had thought that being a soldier in Iraq was hard enough. And when his convoy is attacked and he is taken prisoner by Iraqi insurgents, he thinks things won't get any worse than that either.
But that's when the entire world turns upside down. The city of Basra is under siege from creatures far worse than your average terrorist. And now Leathers will have to find a way to survive against monsters even more horrible than he can imagine, some of which are even human.
BONUS SHORT STORY: Acheron includes Predator and Prey, one of four interlocking stories from The Junkie Quatrain by Peter Clines.

Enjoyable siege feel

Light of zombies, but has a good PA feel. Set in Iraq and the Christians are the fundamentalists, delicious irony. Some plot holes but as far as zombies books on Audible this one is better than 75% of them. Narration is strong.Not Romero pure however still recommended.

Part one....

A decent read but also not really a zombie book. More of a supernatural end of the world book. I don't recall one person becoming infected by a zombie. The book could have ended an hour earlier because there really wasn't an ending...just a lead in to the next novel. The book was more like a re-imagining of Stephen King's The Mist with zombies thrown in for background. All in all a decent read and has a lot of potential for a sequel, just not what i was looking for from zombie fest.
