4,0 von 5 Sternenfairly standard zombie story but a decent read nonetheless

Good characters. Basic zombie plot until a unique twist makes this a bit more than expected. I was a little disappointed we didn't get further into the apocalypse. The premise is so played out I could have done with a little less "this is how we got there" and a little more of "this is what we're doing to survive."
I like the main character and can easily root for him in the apocalypse. A little like season 1 Rick Grimes if you're a TWD fan - very concerned with keeping everyone safe, protecting family, dealing with stuff you can't possible think you'll ever deal with. The daughter is a bit whiny and a know it all but I guess someone has to be super brilliant when the world goes to heck in a handbasket. I do think the Agent in Black thing is a bit much - I can hear Rod Sterling's voice in the back of my head when we get to his POV. He's too "unbelievable" to be taken seriously.
5,0 von 5 SternenExciting Start to an Excellent New Series!

Wow! I loved every second of this book and cannot wait for more! I pre-ordered Zombie Patrol a day or two ago and couldn't stop reading it today. J.R. Rain is one of my favorite authors and I quickly snatch up anything he puts out. I know that when I'm getting one of his books that it's going to be a fun and exciting story. With that being said I've never read on of his collaborations until now. I've read most of his books: the Vamire for Hire series (my personal favorite - now along with Zombie Patrol), his Jim Knighthorse and Spinoza series, Elvis has not left the building and The Body Departed (great ghost story - brought a tear to my eyes) along with most of his short story collections. So I wasn't sure if I'd like this one as much but it was everything and more than what I've come to expect from Mr. Rain. I haven't ready anything from Elizabeth Basque yet but after this book I definetly intend to check her works out.
In Zombie Patrol Jack Carter is a Forest Ranger who deals with wild animals, drug runners and the occassional criminal. He's also a single father who's going through all the things a normal father do rasing a teenage daughter on his own. He has to deal with Anna's grwoing up, starting to like boys and becoming more independent and if that wasn't enough now he has to also deal with a Zombie Invasion. One day Jack's brother Joey (A Navy Officer) and a friend show up on his doorstep sick with what seems like at the time your average flu bug but it's not the flu and Jack's about to learn that being a father and brother are about to get alot tougher in this new zombie ridden world.
I'd like to let everyone know that this story is a bit darker than Rain's usual stories. His characters are every bit as real. They're heroic yet flawed, caring yet make mistakes. The plot flows almost effortlessly and it's easy to get caught up in Jake's life while he tries to figure out how to help his family and keep his daughter safe. I really cared about the characters and found myself at the edge of my seat with worry in more than one spot in the story. I can honestly say I haven't been this excited about a new series in a long time. I truly cannot wait for the next one. I need to know what's going to happen next!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Rain's Samantha Moon books and when I saw he had written a Zombie novel, I was really pleased to get it. I hate giving a negative review but I have to say this book was a bit of a disappointment. There is very little action, very few confrontations and it just wasn't scary. Zombie stories can (and should) be scary and this one just wasn't. I enjoy reading books that make me care about the characters. I did not get that from this one. I like Mr. Rain's style so I will try #2 in the series when it comes out. I am hoping for some action and maybe there will be a muzzle on the snotty teenage daughter.
4,0 von 5 SternenThe trilogy by any other author that would be one book

I really like JR Rain - I love his books. I would give this book 5 stars, but this book isn't really a book - it's part of a book. The story doesn't really end. Many of JR Rain's books are short like this but at least he ended his Samantha Moon books (usually) with some kind of resolution or ending. The book is super short and lacks any kind of resolution or ending, that is why I gave it only 4 stars - to me it wasn't a whole book but an unfinished one. However, I highly reccomend this book, but buy the whole trilogy. It'll be worth the money and you will enjoy it.
The first book is dealing with the infection and you really are not getting into the zombie part of the infection it touches it lightly but I am not sure but i think the next book will be about the zombies. This book gets you into loving the characters who are infected and that sucks because they are really likable characters but at the end of the book you still do not know what is going to happen with them. If you like zombie books I do believe you will enjoy this one and it ends where you have to pick the second one up so see what is going to happen.
