Review by: Joy Killer on July 4, 2015 :
The Darkest Hour by Douglas Jeffreys is a well-written and solid account of one man’s survival in a post-apocalyptic world. The main character, Duke lives up to his namesake and is in many ways a lot like a post-apocalyptic John Wayne. He is a stoic, conscientious, gun-loving, family man who heads for the hills when his family is killed by zombies. Duke is a man of deep rooted ethics and to avenge the deaths of his wife and child he makes it his purpose to eradicate as many zombies as he can. The first half of the story outlines his solitary life in an abandoned cabin as he make excursions into local towns to scavenge and destroy the zombie menace, while the second half is an action packed roller coaster ride as he defends a collegiate campus against the attack of a power hungry drug lord named Juice. Duke and his booze loving, ex-military friend Thor pull out all the stops to protect the campus- culminating in an exciting finale. As I look back on the story, there are a few aspects that I really appreciate. First, Douglas Jeffreys’ writing is tight- The Darkest Hour is free of typos and that is fairly exceptional in this modern era of self-publishing. Secondly, although many of the characters are slightly stereotypical, these are stereotypes that I like, and enjoyed reading. These characters are heros and villains that are easily identifiable and ones whom I never tire of. I recommend the Darkest Hour by Douglas Jeffreys to all fans of the zombie/apocalyptic genre!

I heard about this book from a friend. After I read his copy, I had to get it for myself. Action, excitement, bad guys, monsters, hot chicks, and a couple of bad a$$ heroes.
You'd be hard pressed to find a better read and a great bargain to boot.
