Solid start!!

10 years ago, the world was nearly decimated by a Zombie virus, but they managed to get control of it and everything went back to normal. Except now it isn't. The Zombie virus has been accidentally unleashed on an Island and a group of commandos are sent to the island to rescue some scientists that are stranded on it. But not everything is like is seems and this "easy" mission turns out to be something a lot more!!

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this. It's action packed, fast paced and had enough twists and turns to give you whiplash! It's well written and developed and read like a great action movie. I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout and listened to this as quick as I could. The characters were all well written as well and I pretty much loved all of them. Don't get too attached though because this is a Zombie book after all, so there will be death!!

In all, this is a solid start to what looks like an amazing series. Enjoyable, entertaining and fun, all the while being a horror story too. It was like a movie playing out and I want more!!!

S W Salzman has an awesome voice for horror! He just gets when to add the tension and when to dial it back. He was clear and concise and read it well. He had a variety of tones and voices that was impressive, though his Aussie accent was a little off. It didn't detract from the story though!!

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

*I received a comp code for this audio book for an honest review*

Not a dull moment! This book is different in that it doesn't start right before a zombie outbreak, not during, and not immediately. It's further down the road, but while things are still being experimented with and such. There's a lot of politics and money behind the scenes. The only thing I might warn about is the harsh language and crude humor shown by some characters, which honestly made them feel more realistic.

Side note:Did anyone else picture The Smoking Man when Mr. Black was on scene the first couple of times?!

I wasn't sure about the narrator at first, being a bit different from what I've gotten used to, but I warmed up to him quickly. He did voices, accents, and he seemed to actually know the story. I've heard several that it seemed like that it was the reader's first time looking at the book, and that always puts me off. Big points for that not happening here!

Overall: If you like zombies and military action, don't mind blood and guts or an f bomb here and there, I would definitely recommend this!
