Anxiety and building desperation fuel this debut zombie thriller, the first in a series that already has a significant online fan base. Army Capt. Lee Harden is alone in an underground bunker, preparing to return to a world where the FURY virus has turned most of the population into homicidal cannibals. Sharply targeted sentences depict an acutely human action hero who wrestles his anxiety by packing and unpacking his gear, trying to find online porn in a post-Internet world, and playing with his dog. Amply trained and armed, Lee is nonetheless a nauseated shaking mess as he emerges with little understanding of what he's up against. With a handful of survivors, he embarks on a sweaty, frantic, bloody scramble across the surreally placid North Carolina countryside. Though this first installment is less a story than an establishment of scene and players, Molles's precise construction gives readers ample reason to return, as does the agonizing companion novella, which provides an unnerving view of what occurred while Lee was waiting to begin his mission.

not for this many pages
Pretty disappointed in 50 pages for this and the next in the series, no way I am going to shell out a couple of bucks for that. Good storyline here, but no value for the money overall.
Not worth the money.
I love this series, so I was excited to read the next instalment. So I paid $4.50 for it......for 150 iPhone pages. Not cool. I want to finish this series, but I don't want to spend a fortune on it.
