This story is very well written and delivers on many levels - emotional involvement, action, mystery.

You get to see what happens to the mind of people when they are faced with a devastated world. And to up the ante, the zombies in this story aren't your garden variety. There is something inside of the walking dead, something from their former lives that thuds deep within their psyche. For some, an overwhelming desire to continue life, with only the need for human flesh being any kind of change. For others, true love still lingers.

But, as they continue on, they slowly lose the humanity.
