Publisher's Summary

The people that killed the world were fiendishly clever.
After decades of planning, the contagion was unleashed, and overnight hundreds of millions died and came back as rampaging, undead monsters. The living that had been lucky enough to survive the first day of carnage, lucky enough to be in the right place, and lucky enough that some of them had the skills to survive soon found out there was much more to worry about than just zombies.
In the high desert on the outskirts of Reno, there is an old truck stop frequented by a mix of hard caliber truckers, day tourists, musicians, and travelers. They have survived the chaotic first hours of contact with the undead and now must make their way across the country to a location they believe is safe. Zombies are only the beginning of their troubles as they try to cover the thousands of miles of open road with their hastily armored 18-wheelers. Gunny, a long haul trucker doing one of the few jobs available to him as a disgraced soldier, is unwillingly saddled with the job of getting these survivors to the safe zone. With a motley crew of truck drivers, college kids, veterans, a drug dealer, and a rock star, they are racing the clock to make it before time runs out. The last text he had received from his wife before the cell towers went down told him she was trapped in a high-rise in downtown Atlanta and their son was in detention, stranded in the basement of the school he attended. Gunny just wanted to drop the hammer, steal some guns, and blast his way in to rescue them, but duty called. He had to get these people to safety first, then he could recruit the best of this crew to help him save his family. If they survived the journey.

Well that was a suprise!

If you are like me you have a strange addiction to zombie, apocalyptic, and dystopian books. While I make myself leave the genre, I have a wish list full of books. Also if you are like me, you have read the easy titles like all of Mark Tufo (more than once). Often I try a new author and I get a lukewarm book or more infrequently a terrible title that I return. But occasionally a book surprises me. I have to admit the character premise in this book was not that appealing to me and I had left it in my wish list for a while. But after my last two very forgettable reads I said what the heck. What a Great Surprise this book turned out to be. It was fun, believable in a fun fiction kind of way, and I like the characters. I only gave it a 4 on story, because I am a character development junkie (Tufo, Stephen King etc). I am hoping that Mr Simpson fleshes out the personality of his characters more in the next book. He has an excellent base with this book, and touches on some military humor and relationships, but I crave more to really become invested with the characters in a story. But if you like the genre this is a fun romp. Just purchased the next book in the series and I am looking forward to starting it now. On a side note the epilogue made me chuckle.

Entertaining but..

It was entertaining, better than some z books, worse than others, but 7/10. The twist of having truckers away from home was nice. I get the impression the authors understanding of truck drivers and their life and job is limited to what he's seen in convoy.
Consistency was a bit hard for the author as well. A zombie is fast enough and strong enough to tackle a motorcycle rider doing 100+ mph, but later a teen is able to kill a few dozen while hanging upside down with a sharp stick. Another point that was difficult to believe was how the virus spread. This isnt a book that sweeps you up with it's believability but it is kinda fun and entertaining. I will buy the next when it comes out.

Surprisingly good.

The title of this nearly put me off but as a die hard zombie fiction fan I gave it a go and actually really enjoyed it.Likeable characters you actually care about,the whole how the virus came about is not one I have come across before either.Give it a go.
