Publisher 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)

Great but a little dull in parts

The opening was great and I thought it was a good idea to have his broken leg, essentially trapped in his own home and own body, although this was good there was a huge section of the book where he is still in his home, this became a bit boring in parts, I’d have liked to have seen the diary entries a few days apart to speed up how recovery or have something happen to force him out sooner.
Once out of the house the book became more interesting about the scavenging and finding safety and food but the book really didn’t have much direction other than supplies once he abandoned his original plan of a boat, even times where I’d have liked him to stay at one of the locations to rest his leg yet he chose to leave which didn’t make sense.
Finally the ending was unexpected and leads onto the second book, with some interesting points from this and the prequel book I’m intrigued to see how the writer takes the direction of this characters story. So I will read book 2 to find out.

Great book!

I was bored exploring apps I never used and this caught my eye... I’m glad it did as it was thrilling and can get your mind working!
