Publisher's Summary

A world cloaked in darkness...
With human civilization annihilated by a biological zombie plague, a rag-tag fleet of yachts and freighters known as Wolf Squadron scours the Atlantic, searching for survivors. Within every abandoned liner and carrier lurks a potential horde, safety can never be taken for granted, and death and turning into one of the enemy is only a moment away.
The candle flickers...
Yet every ship and town holds the flickering hope of survivors. One and two from lifeboats, a dozen from a fishing village, a few hundred wrenched by fury and fire from a ship that once housed thousands....
Light a flame...
Now Wolf Squadron must take on another massive challenge: clear the assault carrier USS Iwo Jima of infected before the trapped Marines and sailors succumb to starvation. If Wolf Squadron can accomplish that task, an even tougher trial awaits: an apocalyptic battle to win a new dawn for humanity. The war for civilization begins as the boats of the Wolf Squadron become a beacon of hope on a Darkling Sea.

Best Yet

I am a big fan of John Ringo. The first two books in the series were great and I eagerly added the third to my library when it became available. Book 3 is head and shoulders above the first books in the series. There are moments in the book that will make any red blooded American feel like cheering. It's an excellent listen.

I know that Ringo has a habit of dropping series just as they are hitting their stride and moving on to other projects, but I really hope there is more in store for this one.

John Ringo Writes!

John Ringo is in that class of writers who are clearly devoted to the craft. While many writers are milking the reader base with shameless padding, Ringo stays true to his readers and delivers compelling sci-fi with real hard hitting action backed up by solid character development. Are the characters a little over the top? Absolutely, they're heroes and supposed to be. This series is an example of that writing, extraordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, with impossible odds and limited options, who find a way to rise above.

Best book of all 3!

What did you like most about Islands of Rage & Hope?

The fight scene at the end and the general taking control :)

What other book might you compare Islands of Rage & Hope to, and why?

Not sure there is a comparison but zombie fallout are bit better but these are getting close especially this third book :)

Which character – as performed by Tristan Morris – was your favourite?

Faith or Walker

Any additional comments?

Cant wait for book 4 as these started good but are getting better :)
