The post-apocalyptic series readers are describing as "one of the best post-apocalypse stories I've ever read."
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 you only had eight hours left to live, what would you do?
In response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, a Special Forces team is sent on a military exercise to curtail future outbreaks. But when they encounter infected civilians, they soon discover they’ve entered a real-life nightmare, and must put their training to the test.
I received this book to give an honest review.
I think this may be my favorite book out of this series.
If you have read the other books in this series then you know that once you are infected you only have eight hours to live. Well in book four we are introduced to possibly how it all started. Or at least that is how I put it together.
We are given new characters from a Special Forces team, we start off with different point of views from the characters, and what they are doing before they get the call to come back in. At first they think it is a game until well it no longer is.
This author did a great job with describing how dedicated the Special Forces are and how they are willing to put their life in danger and on the line to try and save others. I can honestly say I really liked how this all went down because it felt like it could be real. Like this is how could have happened and that is pretty scary. Let us see where book five takes us now!!
