Review: Day By Day Armageddon: Ghost Run (Review & Giveaway)

I've been a lifelong fan of zombie flicks, but I very seldom read zombie novesl as the ones I have read weren't very good. That being said, I went ahead and read an advanced copy of Day By Day Armageddon: Ghost Run by J.L. Bourne, despite the fact that I've never read the first three books in the series. The good news is that there is a five-page "Author's Note" at the very beginning that gives you quick "catch me up" on the main plot of the series.

Day By Day Armageddon: Ghost Run centers on a Navy commander, Kil, who is trying to gather enough supplies for his family (his wife Tara and their daughter Bug) to last through the hurricane season on their boat, which is one of the safest places to live without the zombies attacking.

Out of nowhere, Kil comes across a faint distress ping from possible survivors. Leaving his family behind, he journeys through the zombie-infested lands searching for the source of the signal. With the help of a newfound ally, Kil must battle herds zombies around every corner in the hope of finding something that will save humanity.

Final Thoughts

Written in first-person as if the Kil is writing in a journal, I found it easy to connect with the main character. Considering I had never read the other books in the series, I had no trouble jumping right into this story. The whole zombie apocalypse plot has been done to death ever since George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead was released in to theaters 1968, but J.L. Bourne has nicely woven together an action-packed zombie tale with enough bite that kept me turning the pages from the very beginning to very end. Overall, I thought Day By Day Armageddon: Ghost Run was an intriguing read.
