Pretty dry. Writer will wax ecstatic about past events that don't much bearing on the storyline itself. Ending was ok. Read full review

This one was disappointing for me. I was expecting something more action packed, like The Passage by Justin Cronin. In this novel, a group of survivors are working to clear out stragglers from ... Read full review
