Aboard a freighter bound for Baltimore harbor, an Iranian terrorist prepares to unleash an unimaginable horror upon the United States. The ‘Wrath’ is an undead plague – an infection that consumes its victims with a maddening rage and turns them into mindless blood-thirsty killers.
Jack Cutter is just an ordinary guy dealing with a dreadful guilt when the virus tears through his home town. Before it’s too late, Cutter will have to find a way to survive, and find a reason to fight: HIS REDEMPTION.
Do you love Zombies?
Do you love action?
If you’re answer was YES, then this is a book for you.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
“They were safely through the intersection.
They were safely out of the city.
They were on their way to Eden Gardens.
And then the car broke down.”
The above quote is my favorite part of the book. I LOVED that!
Ground Zero began with a man on a ship, who infected himself with a zombie infection. So that he can spread it throughout the US. This book had me hooked from the start. This book was a fast read.
This book kept my interest throughout the whole story, it was one that was hard to put down. It was action packed! There was non stop action, which made it very exciting.
The writing was perfect with describing the action, describing how the zombies looked, and describing the feelings, thoughts and actions of the characters of the story.
The book had a good ending. I would not want to spoil anything, but I like the way it looked like it was going to end one way, but ended another. It also seems to have a ending that can be a real ending, or one that can lead to more books. But, very pleased it is not a cliff hanger. 🙂
If you’re looking for a white-knuckle gory thrill-ride of zombie action, this is the book for you.
It’s always nice when a zombie story elaborates on the origin of the outbreak and this one in fact dives right into it’s genesis as a terrorist attack that starts a wave of zombies across the United States. From there it’s almost a non-stop ride through guts & carnage as we follow Jack Cutter’s wild ride to what he hopes will be a safe haven.
I would have loved for this to have been a longer story and for it to have spent some more time on the characters, we meet some interesting folks along the way but never really get to know very much about any of them. Though yay for the hero who isn’t a secret ops soldier turned ordinary citizen!
I’m hoping this isn’t the last we’re going to see of Nicholas Ryan’s zombie universe as Jack Cutter isn’t the only one looking for a new home safe from the undead tide!
