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)

  • Awesome ! Realistic read

    By Heathermom0927
    I liked this book it was realistic, at least to me . You really get attached to the author you want him to succeed . I felt his disappointments and his successes. Only complaint that's it's too short and can be a tad bit predictable but really if you're an avid reader most plots you figure out anyway . Anyway solid read
  • Great fast read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this zombie book. Well written well paced and views a zombie apocalypse in a way I haven't seen before despite watching lots of zombies shows and movies and reason many zombie books. Definitely worth reading I just downloaded the second and third books too!
  • Worth read

    Gripping post-apocalyptic novel that keeps you turning the pages and rooting for the hero. Well written, intense action and likable characters.
