I haven't read many zombie stories, so I can't be certain if this book is original.  It certainly seems like it to me though, and I am impressed!  

With a world set several years after a zombie outbreak, we follow a young man searching for his sister.  We learn about him and his shame-filled past, his family, and the state of America after a virus-like epidemic turned thousands of people into zombies.  We learn what the government did about it, how the country is set up, and how the zombies are dealt with.

I was impressed with the cultural and environmental details the author had in the story, and the foundation he laid for this series.  At the same time, I enjoyed the lack of details about small things, such as clothing color, and tedious details that don't really need to be explained.  The author is a very good writer, in my opinion, and I enjoy his writing style.

The book flows quickly, painting a clear picture of the world around the characters, and the adventure they find themselves dropped into.  There are several surprises, and I love the ending.  I'm very excited to read the sequel, and certainly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good zombie story.

*I was given an eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.
