Kurzbeschreibung

Eric Riordan was once a wealthy man leading a comfortable, easy life. Until one day Gabriel--his oldest friend, a Marine Corps veteran, and a former mercenary--told him how the world was going to end.

He did his best to prepare. He thought he was ready for anything.

He was wrong. 

As the dead rise up to devour the living, one man finds himself struggling to survive in the ruins of a shattered world. Alone, isolated, and facing starvation, his only chance is to flee to the Appalachians and join forces with Gabriel. But the journey will not be easy, and along the way his humanity, his will to live, and his very soul will be tested.

This is the beginning. This is his story.


Surviving the Dead Series: 

No Easy Hope
This Shattered Land
Warrior Within
The Passenger
Fire In Winter

4.0 von 5 Sternen Zombies, Zombies, Zombies 29. Mai 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
habe jetzt schon so viele davon gelesen, so viele gesehen, dass ich nicht Neues mehr erwartet habe und tatsächlich: alles, was vorkommt, wurde so oder ähnlich schon mal geschrieben, gedacht und verfilmt. Trotzdem ein spannendes Buch, flüssig geschrieben, locker erzählt und von der Logik her ziemlich sauber durchdacht. Vielleicht ein bisschen viel Waffengerede ("nehme jetzt die AK4751 und die ZX2145 mit dem Silencer, dazu .543mm Munition im Tausenderpack und für die Ferne eine YYPBK1013"), das mag was für die Fans von Battlefield, Deus Ex oder Halo sein, ich hab's einfach überlesen. Aber wer ein einfaches, spannendes Buch für die Ferien sucht, wem das Genre gefällt, der kann nichts wirklich falsch damit machen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great! 17. Dezember 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
When you pay $2.99 for a book on Amazon you never know what you're going to get as far as quality, especially in this genre. I have to say that this was one of the MUCH better books, if not THE best, I have read in this price range since I started buying books for Kindle. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in zombie story-telling as an example of what can be done when you pay attention to detail (particularly pertaining to grammar and spelling) and have an actual story to tell, as opposed to simply finding new ways of describing killing zombies. This is a very good and well thought out book. Buy this book, I guarantee you will like it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Suspense-free Zombie Apocalypse 25. Februar 2013
Von Peter Schaub - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had a really hard time getting into this book. It took me a while to figure out what the problem was, but once I did it seemed obvious. There are certain things that I enjoy reading and thinking about that makes the post-apocalypic genre so appealing to me: men and women finding hidden skills and strenth in themselves to overcome obstacles, scrounging for supplies and making do with unusual/broken gear, the threat of being outnumbered and poorly armed, and finally being faced with a poorly understood (or completely unknown) threat and trying to learn what in the world is happening all around you. The author of this book removes all of that very early in the book, and so what we're left with is a completely suspeneless description of someone's survival shelter, a fairly dry explanation of the zombie virus' effects, and a pretty cheesy bromance novel.

**minor spoilers**

Since both the main character and his friend, Gabriel, are extremely wealthy and forewarned of the outbreak, they have completely insulated themselves from its effects. They both have the time and resources to construct elaborate shelters and stock them with anything they could possibly need post-apocalypse. Also they are both extremely healthy, single and with no kids, so there are no physical threats that they really need to concern themselves with - they're never protecting anyone, or dealing with any real 'survival' issues. They also have all the weapons, food, tools and supplies to get them through the entire outbreak. Gabe even had foreknowledge of the attacks and had extensive training and expertise in fighting the undead, all of which he was able to pass on to the main character in a lengthy email.

**end spoilers**

To me, this completely removes anything that is interesting or inspiring about a PA book. I'm not saying that the author needed to include an asthmatic, wheelchair-bound blind man in an effort to gin up the suspense. That would be ridiculous as well. But what makes these stories to fascinating is seeing how ordinary people respond to extraordinary challenges. A good example of this is the family living in the high-rise apartment building in the movie "28 Days Later". The father scrounged up some riot gear from somewhere, and they've blocked the bottom of the stairwell with furniture and debris (if I remember correctly). They have buckets and glasses on the roof to collect rainwater, and use Christmas lights to illuminate their flat and to alert other survivors of their presence. All of it is so powerful when you combine it with the fact that this is a regular guy and his teenage daughter doing their best to survive.

Hopefully my critique makes sense. There are other problems with his writing: multiple grammatical mistakes, describing mundane tasks in a step-by-step matter (do I really need to hear *exactly* how he gets his supplies into his bunker?), lots of extemporizing, that could have all been cleared up with a strong editor. But even after editing this book would still have zero suspense or adventure.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It's a good/okay read 26. Dezember 2011
Von D.D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm an avid reader of Z-books. If it has a reasonable length and is a reasonable price, I'll buy it. "Handbooks," novels, anthologies, you name it. That said, I've developed a taste for what I enjoy most, which sometimes makes it difficult to enjoy new authors.

I give this book a 3/5 because, by and large, the book focuses primarily on the emotions, love lives, and friendships of the characters. There was a minimum of actual Z-engagements. In addition, the main character's behavior seems unbelievable to me, unless he is the most altruistic individual one could hope to meet.

I'll probably purchase and read the second book; the framework has been laid for a novel more along the lines of what I'm accustomed to.

If you're the type who likes zombies but don't care for the gore or if you're a fan of Austen-esque descriptions of characters and the like, this book is for you.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This book needed an editor 15. Januar 2012
Von The Generic American - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I think this author has talent and I know how hard it is to finish a challenging project of this nature, but I think this book would have been vastly improved by an editor who would have challenged the writer to make better choices. For one, an editor would have told the author to radically scale back on the endless guns, ammo, and martial arts descriptions that quickly became tedious and are only really of interest to ardent gun enthusiasts. Weaponry is obviously an important part of the zombie world, but it kills any book where it becomes the main focus.

Also, the character development is lacking. All the male characters seem to be cut from the same generic blue collar meat and potatoes man template and the dialogue rarely rises above one dimensional locker room talk. There is little true vulnerability or growth and I found it hard to relate to or connect with the characters.

Also, the plotting suffered because the dialogue was mostly expository.

I do plan to buy the next book in the series because I think the author has promise, but he really needs to rethink some of what he does. I just read another zombie book called "Into the Badlands" that avoids all these pitfalls and generated a lot of suspense and character connection by making its characters 3 dimensional, vulnerable, and real.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good read... 22. Januar 2012
Von z-mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was definitely worth the $2.99 and it was an engaging read. I think the author's focus on the characters rather than just the zombie encounters was a smart choice and for me, a welcomed change.

With that said, there are a few minor points of contention for me:
*editing-it seems to be a trend with e-books, but missing words, misspellings and grammatical mistakes are a tad annoying.
*at moments, the main character is a bit hard to pin down, his behavior is at moments a bit contradictory. Unlike other reviewers, I appreciated his altruism.
*(possible spoiler alert) it seems that the dead are "evolving" which makes sense, but during the last standoff I would have expected a more intense assault which followed the newly patterned behavior.
*like others I too took issue with the details of artillery. The descriptions were lost on me since I don't know what guns work with what ammo and which guns would make sense in all the various situations. The author tried to explain, but at times I felt like my eyes were glazing over.

All in all though, I would definitely take a shot with this book. It was a quick read and I'm glad I found it.
