Like all Tim Mcbain and L. T. Vargus books, this story is well written with very rounded characters, that are humorous, likable, and easy to identify with. This is not your typical zombie/apocolypse book.
It begins with Rex, in a makeshift quarantine hospital room. He knows he's dying, everyone is. Plague.
Switches to "Baghead," 9 years later. Canvas bag on his head. Theres something wrong with his face....but what and why?
Changes to "Mitch," 43 days before. Turning into zombie and has to prepare his sons for the Apocolypse. 48 hours from bite to death...
Erin, a teenager taking care of an 8 year old.
Travis, searching for all the cigarettes, pills, and booze he can find, just to stop the feelings.
Switches back and forth between time and characters. Could be confusing if you dont pay attention.
All in all, definitely worth reading. If you think zombies are overdone or played out, read this.
