RATING: 5 stars
REVIEW: I'd like to thank the author and Promotional Book Tours for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the fourth book I've read from DN Simmons, and she has yet to disappoint me. She has definitely been one of my favorite authors this year. Her Knights of Darkness Chronicles was amazing, but this new series, the Dead War Series is shaping up to be even better. Usually I avoid zombie books at all costs, they freak me out, they're way too close to possible to feel comfortable with...and now the author has made the whole zombie apocalypse scenario so real its terrifying.
The author writes so well that I could see the entire scenario unfolding in my head. The poor scientists, just trying to do a job they were given, and yet bringing about the end of the world with their work. And then, it goes horribly, awfully wrong in the matter of seconds. Then it just explodes into a country-wide scenario, completely uncontainable and chaotic.
It made for a thrilling read from the very first page till the last. I can't wait till the next!
