Survive the infection! Survive the Infected!
Following his none-too-soon reunion with his friends at the safe house, Zed is hoping things can finally fall into a stable routine, but in post-virus Austin, things are far from stable. On a mission to raid the ammunition bunkers at Camp Mabry, Zed and Murphy spot a group of the newer, naked infected, who are exhibiting some sophisticated and disturbing new behaviors, such as scouting and hunting – for them.
After a narrow escape, the two pass the home of Mr. Mays on the return trip, stirring Zed’s predictable rescuer impulse. Finding Mr. Mays dead, Zed brings fellow chain gang escapee Nico along to join the group, whose numbers have grown again, thanks to their merger with the girls on the riverboat, where the group has moved, as seems to be the safest hiding place… Or is it?

Now, on to the review. Once again, Mr. Adair had me wrapped up in the story. I adore Zed. He's a jackass sometimes. He doubts himself. He's real. But more than him, I LOVE MURPHY. I am in serious need of a What Would Murphy Do bracelet. Now, I love the other characters, too. I've gotten attached. I'm trying not to leave any spoilers, so I'll just say this: DAMN YOU, YOU EVIL AUTHOR MAN! Why you gotta go making me bawl???? I kept thinking, nah, Null Spot will make sure everything is okay! But no, instead I wound up sobbing over my kindle!
Ah! I love this story as a whole, and book 5 didn't deter from that fact in the slightest! I can't wait for book 6!
