Like many of these zombie apocalypse stories, it isn't so much about the shambling, hungry walking dead as it is how the survivors struggle to fight off the seemingly endless hordes.

Set in the Gulf Coast panhandle of Gulf Shores, Alabama, charter boat captain, Billy Harris, along with his young son and teenage daughter, join the ragtag group of surviving townspeople and military personnel from a nearby base and Coast Guard to save their city. The author's intimate knowledge of military protocol

Last Stand on Zombie Island details the attempts by a small fishing town to defend itself against the initial and then continuing outbreak of a zombie virus. As society breaks down the town does it's best to adapt itself to a post-zombie world and survive.

For a freshman effort, this book is pretty good. The story is much more sweeping in the sense of scale than most similar stories, focusing on an entire town trying to survive than a small group of survivors. In this sense it is certainly unique

Last Stand on Zombie Island was one of those books that once I started it was hard to put down. Although it started a little slow, once it heated up, it stayed that way until the end. The writer did a great job with vivid descriptions and writing that allowed the reader to feel exactly what the characters were feeling. Since The Walking Dead is on break, I needed a good zombie book to fill the void. This certainly did with believable characters and I even tensed up while reading some of the scen ...more

Last Stand On Zombie Island briefly provides the reader with an understanding of the virus that causes the zombie apocalypse when it touches down in Los Angeles and rapidly spreads from there, in the first chapter, though this is just a very brief introduction to the inevitable tale any fan of apocalyptic fiction knows extremely well. The author shifts gears in chapter two and from there on out we are focused on Gulf Shores, Alabama, where we are introduced to Billy, a fishing boat captain, as w ...more

When I started this book I was a bit worried it reminded me to closely of another that I reviewed several months ago. It did, but that's OK. Last Stand On Zombie Island quickly held it's own and while I did find faults in the end it didn't matter. Christopher Eger provided solid plot and characters and for that I can look past the resemblance to my past read.

That being said I want to share The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Last Stand on Zombie Island.

The Good

The Characters- While the role

Só pela capa vê-se logo que é uma produção amadora (é uma das vantagens dos Ebooks - é fácil para escritores que não arranjam editoras normais, publicar os seus próprio livros) mas isso esconde uma obra que é bastante boa e onde somos "brindados" com algumas visões do apocalipse zombie, sendo que a maior parte da acção passa-se nos momentos a seguir. O livro acompanha a vida de uma pequena cidade do Alabama - apenas ligados ao continente por uma ponte e tendo a sorte de ter uma larga frota pesqu ...more

Just an amazingly bad book. Written like a "by god I have a gun and I am such a great guy" book. The use of English was abysmal....using "drug" which is NOT A WORD....avoid this book like the plague. A waste of time and money.....clearly...drug down to my knees is shooting and "Army speak" star is way too much

The author conveys the scenario and characters with a lot of credibility but will be served in future by finding ways to model the writer's adage, "show don't tell." Too often scenes were described as having happened when they should have been exploited for all they were worth.
