Interesting Take on Zombies

I read lots of Zombie books. This is set in a future I don’t like. Not only is it sad to listen to the daily life, the government control is awful. The characters are all flawed humans that have to reach inside and pull hard to get through this day. I already got the next three in the series. I’m interested enough to see what happens next.

Very interesting spin on Zombie Apocalypse. Read entire series besides the first three in the box set. It keeps you very interested in finding out how it will end. Ending took me by surprise, never thought it'd would end the way it did with one of the main characters. Definitely recommend reading.

And just when I thought . . .

. . . Sam Sisavath had a death grip (pun intended) on the zombie story line, I’m delighted to say I was wrong. I’m loving these stories and I’m thrilled at having found another wonderful author to enjoy. Here’s to the zombie apocalypse! May it never happen.

Good read

Rys is a strong man who loves his son dearly. He is learning what the infected are doing and he is afraid they are getting smart.
The first three books are great. I will be getting the next three.

Excellent read. Great characters, and a quick tempo make it difficult to put down!
Looking forward to the rest of the series!

Robertson condenses and stretches time, appropriately and necessarily, to capture the first minutes, hours and days in a zombie apocalypse. Falling within the broader category of zombie apocalypses, this take is toward the rage spectrum of "28 Days Later" rather than the lumbering Walking Dead variety, which makes it all the worse for protagonist, Rhys. The entire trilogy barely clocks in at 2 days in character time. Wonderfully, the narration style morphs as time goes on and characters have mom ...more

The first book takes a few pages to introduce the main character, Rhys, and then -- all Hell breaks loose! The first two books are non-stop action that doesn't let up. The third book slows a bit to give some backstory for Vicky, who showed up in the first book.

If you want a lot of thrilling action, then this series is for you. The major plot arcs are resolved for each book, but all of them end on a cliffhanger that paves the way to the next book.

There were a lot of interesting developments, and

The high expectations I had for this series have been fully fulfilled so far.

It's raw, shocking, and incredibly human in all the worst humankind has to offer. It hooked me right on the first scene on book 1 and kept my interest until the last scene of book 3. In fact it's keeping my interest way beyond that, as I'm looking forward for the next installments in the series. (And I'd been so sure I didn't like stories with zombies!)

The characters are engaging and really well brought to life. There's
