It is their world now. The dead are hungry and do not discriminate.

Bruh this is my favorite apocalypse novel, like I love this novel. I keep editing my review while I keeping reading this novel. AND anyone reading this review, read the goddamn novel, it's so good also write comments it's fun interacting with the author
Go and read this!!! It's one of the best novel I've ever read online and definitively the best apocalypse themed one. I'm not a native (as you probably had already seen with my poor English skills ^^) so I can't tell anything about the writing; but the story is amazing.
We follow a little group of survivor during a zombie apocalypse, and a hardcore one as some of the zombie retain basic intelligence (nothing fancy, but just enough to be a threat).
The characters are well writhed, as most of the story focus on their relationship and how they try to survive together and here we get to the strong point of the story, they are realistic. As the reader, we know that they can't achieve their goal of reaching a safe place as it will be the end of the story, and we know there is still a lot of chapter to read. But I want them to succeed! Despite the fact that some characters are despicable, they are still humans with all their flaw. And they evolve in reaction of the apocalypse, some growing harder, other softer. Many die, even among the main crew, and even if we know that some character can't die know as they are too many things left to tell about them, there is always enough characters "able to die" to maintain the tension. And I've often be proved wrong on the "who will be the next to die" guess. However, even if they die, they're usually here long enough for us to know them and care for them, as most of the characters get a long backstory that allow us to discover them in more depth. This is a multiple point of view story by the ways, which I found great in this kind of story because you can basically kill all the character.
Another strong point of the author is foreshadowing, we have just enough to get an inch about the truth, but never enough to be sure.
DON'T READ THIS BEFORE ENDING BOOK TWO (CHAPTER 29)
Russel was the first character introduced, and as such, bound to be an important one and Marcus the only one from whose we hadn't view point. I had made the link but believed that if it was true, we would have had more hint so I didn't believed it myself. You did an amazing job on that one, for me it was just the perfect revelation, it was both believable and surprising which is quite a difficult balance to attain
You feel that the author know where he is going and not just twisting the world to get what he want. And it's allow a good treatment of the supernatural part, which often become a "shut up its magic" bullsh*t in those kind of novel. Here even if we don't know all the rule yet, we know the author does and don't just make it up to save the character from a difficult situation. Superpower are rare (really rare, not "rare" and everyone in the party get them) and seems too often suffer from severe drawback ("seem" cause we had met too few of them yet to know).
The story is dark and violence is depicted, but in what I would call a good way as a lot is left to your imagination, and never glorified. They're scene of torture, but nothing really horrible and the rape scene isn't some porn but what it really is, a horrible scene that fill you with disgust, help the character to change and the story to progress.
To conclude, I would tell you to be sure you had a lot of time before you, get a comfortable position, a lot of coffee and get ready to one hell of a ride, because you will probably not be able to stop reading before reaching the end of a book!
