This was by far one of the most thrilling books I've read in recent memory.

It's slow to start at first, but I think that's given the nature of the inevitable that you know is going to start to happen. You know when you pick it up that it is a zombie novel, and you kind of want the action to start immediately. But, no. Ben Tripp gives us a glance of the humanity of the protagonist, Danny, and her struggles, and it is beautiful. When you eventually do get to the meat of the book, it is done flawlessly. It reads like a movie, and becomes very difficult to put down.

The ending was probably one of the most heart-wrenching things that I have ever read, and the last few sentences have you reeling. While I long to know what possibly could have happened, what it could mean for the fight, the survival, and for humanity, I don't dare hope to see a sequel to this book. The way it ended was absolutely perfect, and in an odd way, needs no further explanation.

An all around fantastic read, and I look forward to seeing more from Mr. Tripp in the future.
