Ringo brings his experienced voice to the Zombie genre. I was a bit surprised as he is so well established and regarded I didn't think he would want to jump on the over worked Zombie genre. Zombies have taken over everything but a few ships at sea. A virus has created them and a few people seem to have natural immunity and some have been vaccinated. This book is about Wolf Squadron, a family dominated militia type of navy that is attempting to rescue survivors and eventually re-take the world.
The Zombies are pretty typical mindless eating creatures. Ringo does write a good story and populates it with very strong female protagonists. I enjoyed the way he contrasted the militia type mentality with the professional military mind set. His women kick butt. The story has places where it flounders a bit but overall an entertaining and action packed read.
I recommend the book.
