We are in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse as as you can imagine, the world as gone to hell and even normal people are doing horrendous things to survive.
A soldier, SSG Chalmers is reading a journal written by Dexter Alexander Baxter he finds in the hand of a partially eaten forearm. He informs his superior of the contents of the journal by a number of emails.The journal holds valuable information about the plague and how Dext, along with people he meets survives.
We read the journal along with Chalmers as Dext as he meets up with other survivors. Cutty and Junior are the first to become part of the group; they have rather an unusual friendship; but they are likeable, although a bit cliche.
The trio continues on in search of a rescue station and they end up finding a few more survivors. Kylee, a soldier and Wyatt, a teenage boy are the new additions to the group.
The story has obviously been influenced by the Walking dead series, but Steve Kuhn makes it his own.
The book is well written and easy to read. I will be reading the next book in the series
