Julianne Snow takes the reader into a world that could happen at any time. The story is even more fitting in a period in which individual citizens, and groups, start preparing themselves for all types of disasters. There could be financial ruin, civil war, earthquakes, or any matter of time but these people will be ready.
It's that time of mind set that we find a small group of Canadians that are of the same mindset. The group consists of ex-military, doctors, environmental scientists, and a few others. Their expertise will all come into play as their world is turned upside down.
The great thing that Julianne does is start the story in a place that many have not seen in stories like this. The story starts in an emergency room in of all cities, Toronto, Canada. As the story unfolds it's obvious that this close group of friends will do all they can to escape the Undead.
Julianne tells the story through the eyes of Julie who uses the technology of the day to write a blog as they travel. The blog will fill the reader not only into their decisions, but provide a glimpse into each member of the group. As you read you will begin to understand them more and see that this "plague" is not the only hardship some have had to face in the world.
Julianne creates a believable story of survival as the group travels from Canada and into the United States. Areas that are mentioned will strike familiar to many who read the book, which adds another depth to the story. This is a book that not only fans of this genre should really enjoy, but those who are blog readers. The additional thing people will take from this book is the optimism the lead character shows through her writing. It appears that no matter how bad the world gets she holds out hope for humanity. Something that is often missing in books of this genre, and a great start to a series of books.
