Description

The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead.

As nations fell, anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews, rationing, it wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned for the major cities. 

Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead.

He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth behind a decades old conspiracy. 

This is the first volume of his journal. (74,000 words)

    As a fan of zombie films/books I've seen/read a few but I found this book has a slight twist from the usual plots associated with this genre. Just bought the second book and hoping the fresh ideas carry on!
  • Good read!

    I don't read books, but I like Zombies so I gave this a try and it was well worth the read. Even gave a reason how the virus was created and how the world fell apart where normally you never find out.
  • Amazing

    I bought this book last week, after reading the reviews I thought I'd give it a go. I'm a massive fan of the walking dead and didn't want it to be a rip off of that but it couldn't be more different. It's rote in diary form which is very good, no long chapters of "he said, she said" If you like things to do with zombies I'd definitely recommend this book. Good story linline and towards the middle to end the story gets really good. I've bought the second book now to start reading, can't wait
  • Addictive!

    Couldn't put this down. From the first few pages I was hooked. A diary of 1 man stuck on his own for months at first seems boring but it's very much the opposite! Glad I read this now, looking forward to ploughing through the others.

    I'm not one for reading books so it takes a very good book to maintain my attention and I was unable to put this down, so I'm looking forward to reading the next one

    How refreshing, an intelligently written and researched zombie novel, with an insight into post terror-threat city disaster protocols. Thought provoking exposition on the plausible realities of a governmental approach to an apocalyptic survival scenario. Needless to say it was an enjoyable read and I look forward to the next instalment.
