The good times started by the Morningstar virus in Plague of the Dead just keep on coming. Society has almost completely crumbled worldwide. Francis Sherman is leading the ragtag remnants of a group of soldiers and refugees across the U.S. from the west coast to hopefully meet up with friend and Morningstar expert, Anna Demilio, in Omaha at a research facility where they hope to develop a vaccine.

Sherman has new problems not limited to zombies. Supplies are low and hard to come by, and gangs of still living people want to take whatever they can. Anna’s group is working its way from D.C. but she has her own issues since she’s being hunted by a rogue group of government intelligence types that have gone off the deep end and want her secured.

Like Plague of the Dead, this is B-level zombie fun with very black-and-white characters and lots of faux-military style jargon and plenty of action. It’s not up to the levels of World War Z or The Walking Dead or Breathers, but if you’re craving a story about flesh eating zombies taking over the world, I’ve read far worse. It’s the equivalent of catching a decent horror movie on cable when you weren’t expecting much out of it and being pleasantly surprised.
