It came on a Friday afternoon, wiping everything good from the land. It came, followed by Hell on earth, bands of brutes and nightmarish creatures, the hopeless and… The Damned.


Scott thought it had to be a joke when a raving lunatic heralding the end of the world broke onto the airwaves. Then an incident of bullets and blood left him in a place devoid of light, where raspi

After he's shot in the head during a nasty traffic incident, Scott wakes up 7 weeks later in a rehabilitation center, only to discover the rest of the hospital is full of dead bodies.

This was an alright read. The good people were taken away (to heaven?) and what was left were offenders of some kind; murderers, and bad people who scrounged for food and safety. A gang of outlaws; some who escaped from prison, tried to control the streets by any mean necessary. Women were used and flesh was eaten. Just the bare bones of horror. Leaned more towards thriller. Too tame for me.

I read a free excerpt of the story and knew right away that I wanted to read the book.

After some searching I got my hands on a signed copy on the second hand market.

Great story. It was a quick, page turner for me. Full of twists and turns.

Now I can't wait to read the rest of the triology.

My first William Ollie book, and probably not my last. Great read, great story. Recommended for end of days fans.
