Genre: Horror, Post-apocalypse, Zombies
The Last Infection chronicles the fall of civilization and the rise of the dead and the evolution of the infected.
The infection swept across the country like a tidal wave. Survivors cling to life as the infected own the night and the dead walk the streets. Chris has endured on his own and bumping into Jake and Alicen weren’t in his plans. The young brother and sister have plans of their own, but Chris has heard too many promises of sanctuary and infection free zones. Jenn’s arrival turns his attention to the one thing he never thought he would face again, hope. They make a pact to reach the kids safe haven, but only time will tell if anyone can survive the last infection.
The Last Infection is a zombie lovers dream. It’s packed with heart-pounding intensity and characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and cheer on from the very beginning. I was hooked from page one!
Jake and Alicen are trying to survive with their parents, but before long the parents are forced to sacrifice themselves to give the kids a chance to keep on going. And that’s exactly what they do. Being as young as they are, twelve and eight-years-old, they seek out a safe haven. Along the way they meet others who are also struggling to survive and end up joining forces. But that doesn’t make survival any easier in the grand scheme of things.
The Last Infection, provides more than just the undead for zombie fans. The characters also have to contend with the infected, who are not mindless zombies. The infected are intelligent and fast — a fatal combination in a post-apocalyptic world. My worst nightmare, in fact.
Aside from the intense action, which kept me on the edge of my seat, and the perfect pacing of the story, the characters are what made this novel a five star read for me. They are so realistic and believable. It was so easy to put myself in their place and understand what they were going through.
I highly recommend The Last Infection to all fans of zombies and post-apocalyptic thrillers! I will definitely be adding the rest of this author’s books to my TBR.
