Once infected, the virus shuts down organs, kills nerve impulses and even reprograms the way we think. The virus becomes us.
But the process takes eight hours.
If the only remaining member of your family was infected, what would you do?
Chris Smith has eight hours to get his infected daughter Maisie to the rumored cure or lose her forever. The only things in his way: a marauding army of killer zombies, a self-declared warrior goddess and a secret buried deep in his past.
I received this book to give an honest review.
Alright I have to say this book was way better than the first one. Chris really redeemed himself and really tried to be a better father to Maisie. We see how people in his past will become a part of his life now. One character George is someone Chris knows and gives him good advice that he needed to hear. When Maisie is bitten Chris will stop at nothing to find a cure, but will it be too late? She only has 8 hours to live and a lot can happen within those 8 hours. We see a bit more of the zombies within this one which is good. I really liked how it wasn't easy to just go from one place to another. We see that not only does Chris and Maisie deal with the zombies but they also have to deal with humans, not everyone is as helpful as others.
I felt the characters were a lot better this time around. They seemed to know how to handle themselves and the situations that were thrown their way. The plot was steady and action filled. If you read book one and decided it was not the book for you then I say give book two a chance. For me it was a whole lot better than I expected.
