Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.
Before the world fell into chaos, zombies existed only in the imagination. Now, there’re more dead walking the earth than living. Zombies move about freely, while humans are forced behind concrete barricades to stay alive.
A man known only as the Reverend has become a threat to the rebuilding United States. The leader of a powerful cult, the Reverend somehow controls the zombies, bending them to his will. He believes zombies are God’s latest creation, making humanity obsolete, and he wants to give every man, woman, and child the chance to become one. With the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, his army composed of both humans and zombies, he may well get his wish.
Best friends Holt and Ambrose went up against the Reverend once. Holt lost a foot and a zombie bit Ambrose… though he didn’t completely turn. He survived the virus, only to become a human-zombie hybrid, reviled by the living and unwelcome among the dead. When the Reverend kidnaps the woman Holt loves, the race is on to save her from a fate worse than death.
Holt and Ambrose must sacrifice everything to take down the Reverend and survive in this dead new world. But will they lose their souls in the process?
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an HONEST review*
This was a well paced zombie book, something I don't always find to be true. The characters were well written, and I felt their pain, their sorrow. And there IS sorrow! One scene in particular brought me to tears! There were a few others that tugged at my heart strings, but that one, man. It was a killer. Not to make this book sound all mushy, or anything like that, because it's not! There was a lot of action, a lot of heart pounding imagery, and I really liked it! I recommend it for all Dystopian and sci-fi fans!
