BLOG TOUR: Beyond Exile by J L Bourne (Book Review 2010-121)

Product Description

The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve. The highly anticipated sequel to the bestselling underground cult classic, Day by Day Armageddon begins where the first novel left off.

Armies of undead have risen up across the U.S. and around the globe;there is no safe haven from the diseased corpses hungering for human flesh. But in the heat of a Texas wasteland, a small band of survivors attempt to counter the millions closing in around them.

Day by day, the handwritten journal entries of one man caught in a worldwide cataclysm capture the desperation--and the will to survive--as he joins forces with a handful of refugees to battle soulless enemies both human and inhuman from inside an abandoned strategic missile facility.

But in the world of the undead, is mere survival enough?

This is a fast paced doomsday book that will appeal to those who enjoy a good combat book with Zombies (YAY!).  It is written in a diary form that is easy to follow.  I didn't read the first book and I think I need to go back and track down a copy.  It didn't hurt the story since the beginning of the book gave a little bit of back ground on  that one.  There are a few moments of humor as well.  I know my nephew in the army is going to enjoy this one.

  1. My son is in this zombie phase and I'm always looking for a good zombie book to read with him. Looks like this will be worth picking up.
