Publisher's Summary

When Victor Tookes went to work that beautiful spring day, he never expected to see a man eaten alive in the street in front of his office. After convincing himself that they really were zombies, he makes a trip from his house in Pennsylvania to his family home in Virginia, battling zombies all the way. His three and a half year old son was bitten on the leg, but doesn't turn into a zombie. Instead, he turns into something more than human.
Victor quickly discovers that everything he knew about zombies was wrong. Not all of them were mindless, uncoordinated, rotting ghouls; some of them were bigger, faster, stronger or smarter than when they were human.
A small percentage of humans are genetically immune to the parasite. Instead of turning these humans into mindless shamblers, they gain enhanced abilities. These new abilities will be pushed to their limits in their quest to carve out a safe haven to call home.
How will he keep his son safe when the world crumbles around him?

Avoid This If You Like Good Writing

This book was a true slog, and I feel cheated of a credit. It's flat and episodic with no real character or story development. The dialog was awful, especially when a character recounted something that happened to them. It read like a diary entry, rather than a conversation. No one actually tells people "blood blossomed" under a dead body, or someone "leaped" at them, especially if English is their second language. It was entirely distracting from a story that was difficult to pay attention to in the first place.

The story in general was an interesting premise, but badly handled by the author. People bitten by zombies develop strange powers that aren't explored or contemplated by the main character in depth. It's just so strange. It seems like the author himself wasn't very interested in this book.

It may have been an additional letdown because of its poor comparison to the "Adrian's Undead Diary" series, which I've just finished reading. If you're looking for a zombie apocalypse series, go for that one first. It's like French champagne compared to this Boone's Farm.
