All Dr. Brianna Lewis wants is a cup of coffee. Coffee to make slaving away in her cell culture lab at Green Fields Biotech a little more bearable on a Friday afternoon when everyone is home already.
What she doesn't count on is a group of terrorists blowing up all the entrances to the building and taking her and a select few others hostage. Bree soon finds herself conflicted. Not only does she know their charismatic leader, she also starts to suspect that there is a lot more to this than the hunt for an illegal bioweapon - a virus that could potentially kill millions in just a few days. Particularly, there is currently a flu epidemic raging across the country, and reports about violent behavior among the afflicted are getting more and more alarming.

"He saw me for me"
That line is when I knew this series was not for me. I've yet to read a ZA novel written by a women author that didn't eventually boil down to one of those adult romance novels your mom used to read, with some zombies every now and again.
Seriously there's an entire section of this book that sounds like a story about Stockholm syndrome and the romantic implications there in. Leading to a very graphic sex scene that makes it impossible for me to share this with friends and family. Half forgot I was even listening to a zombie novel.
The main character is annoying her love interest is one step above the "guys from twilight" all brooding and mysterious and what not. And the other characters are completely forgettable and poorly portrayed.
Finally the authors catchphrases are blaring throughout. Two of which include "my mind was happy to supply." And "what felt like a small eternity"
Just to clarify I don't consider this book to be utter garbage, just not for me. And now you know why.

Believe the bad reviews, it was hideously bad
Mind numbing, tedious and I hoped the main characters would be killed. There were a handful of zombies and no action until the last 45 minutes. The rest was filled with laboratory boring stuff and one unsexy sex scene. Not Steamy. I knew this book was bad when in the first 30 minutes we are told she could be very important to the kidnappers cause, and yet they try to shoot at her almost killing her a few times. If I were a lesbian I would find this book somewhat offensive. In the beginning she is in a relationship with a woman but in the end she ends up with a hot guy saying that her being a lesbian was college curiosity or some nonsense like that. I hated this book and took how bad it was personally. I did my due diligence I read the description, some good and some bad reviews I thought maybe this will be a 3 star because the premise sounded so interesting and the sample was promising. Nope, I was duped! This book had no action just a bunch of meaningless, dull and unimaginative conversation between the two love interests.

Great, fresh idea
A new idea to me so I found it refreshing. I like Bree, the scientist. She has guts and intelligence. She's a bit ditsy at times, naive and is easily thrown off her stride by Nate. And she seems to scowl at almost anything! Every 30 seconds she scowls at someone, usually Nate. It's a little irritating. She's a smart woman but the only come backs she can manage are lame so she scowls. It's not bad enough to stop listening though.
The story is good. I enjoyed putting the pieces together and the reveals of back story and new information are well woven into the story. It flows well and the characters are interesting. I'm looking forward to listening to the second book.

Pretensious and boring
Cliche, pretentious and boring. When I am choosing a book about zombie apocalipse I do not wish to read about a pretentious and unbelievable love affair. The book drags forever, entangled in unneccessary and predictable threads.
