Publisher's Summary

And the dead shall rise... Two hellish years. That's how long it's been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. A feast for the dead. And the living shall gather... One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive - but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe.
Now, retired U.S. Marshal Ed Moore must lead a group of strangers to safety, searching for sanctuary from the dead. A last chance for the living. Let the battle begin.
In the North Dakota grasslands, bands of survivors converge upon a single outpost. Run by a self-appointed preacher of fierce conviction - and frightening beliefs - it may be humanity's only hope. But Ed Moore and the others refuse to enter a suicide pact. They'd rather stand and fight in the final battle against the zombies. An apocalypse of the dead.

Cliche Characters

As a writer I am reluctant to dish out overly harsh criticism. I know what it takes to write a novel. Even so, every page felt like mile 22 on a marathon. The characters reminded me of transplants from my least favorite 1970's TV shows. The story is choppy and difficult to follow and I had zero empathy for anyone in this book. One of the lead characters, a retired US Marshall, reminded me of a bad impression of Clint Eastwood. Furthermore, the world suffered several years of catastrophe yet electricity still flows? I never bought into his world and felt like a bored spectator at a cheesy amusement park.
