Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Peter Meredith 

The Apocalypse Crusade - The First Three Days 

The world is suddenly thrown into chaos as a research project is sabotaged and the dead come alive to feast on the living - it seems like an old story, doesn’t it? Or perhaps you’ve heard this one: cities worldwide are overrun by a plague of man-eating monsters that seem to come out of nowhere while small bands of heroes fight for their lives! 

Yes, we’ve all listened to that book. 

The Apocalypse Crusade is not that book. You are not suddenly thrust into a world gone mad. Instead, you get front-row seats to how the sh-t went down. In real time you are witness to the agony and the horror…and the terrible stupidity that made it all possible. 

This book puts you in the thick of the action. You are the stockbroker who throws a brick through a convenience store window and surges in with the crowd to loot what he can before it’s too late and the food runs out. And you are the 30-year-old housewife who picks up that same brick an hour later and uses it to crack open the skull of a stranger because she has two children to feed. His arms are full and hers are empty - survival is just that simple sometimes. 

You are the ill-prepared family man who foolishly believes the authorities when they say the situation is contained. The line at the gas station is three miles long, wrapping around block after block and so, in a state of denial you go home and play a game of monopoly with the wife and kids as the horde of undead grows and grows all around you. 

And you are the soldier on the line, sweating beneath your helmet and vest. At 10 that morning you were a cocky thing. You were going to kick ass - but that was then. Now, 12 hours later, you’ve retreated four times and you are counting your bullets and eyeing the gas mask sitting on the log next to you. 

You hate the thing. You can’t see worth a damn when it’s on and you sure as hell can’t shoot straight. But to leave it off could mean becoming infected. On the other hand, you know that if you miss just one time you could be eaten alive, screaming and screaming. It happened to Davis and his cries still ring in your ears. 

The mask stays on the log and the headache you’ve had for the last hour really starts to thump and your mouth tastes like ass and your vision is blurry....

Really, really bad.

This is poorly written, plot is pedestrian, characters are flat, story line is silly and the narration is bad. That about sums it up.

Context, Context, Context.

let me start off by saying that context is everything when leaving a review, or talking about anything in general.

if I were to have gone solely off of reviews on this book before buying it, i wouldn't have bought it, which is a shame because these are great books. in a few past reviews, it was said to "not buy this book of you like profanity or the "n" word." which isnt wholly true. sure, there is profanity, but who wouldnt use profanity in dire situations? also, yes, the "n" word is mentioned several times in this book. but what others failed to mention in their reviews was that the useage of that word came from a literal neo-nazi(not the Lefts/snowflake version of a nazi, but a REAL Nazi.) that is a very important thing to note. because without it, it makes the author seem like he himself is a racist, which he is not(you will know what I mean when you read these.)

i urge you to buy these books, they are very great, there are very few books in this genre that get into the science of how the apocs happen, so this seems fresh to me.

i hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

don't

unless you don't mind hearing ni**er repeatedly and fu** every minute and a half don't bother, if you do use your credit and don't need A LOT of background B.S. skip the first 3 hours.

Zombie Awesomeness

This got more riveting as the "days",chapters, went on. Fell in love with some characters and quickly hated others. Made this a more realistic look at the Apocalypse, and nearly the same as the new time. Keep it up and read on!

One oof the best zombie books I’ve ever heard. Had me on edge and even felt the pain of losing love ones. The soldier stories were heartbreaking. Highly recommend. Only I m sorry but hate that dr lee. Other than that amazing story.

Terribly inconsistent

This book has potential, however, the author is painfully inconsistent and did not research or plan out the story well. The disease spreads through mold spores. These spores spread through just getting near infected blood, yet several characters come in close contact over and over, and are fine. Not to mention these spores "repair" the zombie bodies? Yet they have no way to actually move around the body? I made it through the first 2 books, but just couldn't take it anymore. Save your money and go with World War Z or The Zulu Chronicles.

Spoiler Alert! The ending is... “the end.”

I was immediately enthralled by the first book of the three in this audiobook version. These books take a slightly different approach at the creation of zombies and then takes the readers and listeners riding that storyline into a very detailed and unique. This book is very well written and the character development is excellent. The reason for three stars and not five is for one simple reason, the ending is non-existent. It gives the impression of a writer who is either bored with the story or a writer who is out of ideas. There are no “cliff hangers” for the reader or listener to work over in their own way.

If you are ok with a b
