A strange infection has spread across the entire planet leaving death in its path. The zombie apocalypse that everyone believed to be impossible has brought mankind to the brink of extinction, yet small groups of people have managed to survive. No one has been spared contact with the infected dead, not even the most powerful elected official in the world, the President of the United States. This is the continuing story of the Mud Island survivors. Their knowledge of a secret network of survivalists who constructed super-shelters has helped them to survive the infection. Together with a small force of dedicated United States Army soldiers, they undertake a dangerous excursion into the infected city of Columbus, Ohio. Their goal is to eliminate as many of the infected as they can while the city is in the grips of a severe winter, but in the process they hope to locate the President's shelter. If he is alive, they can begin to rebuild the country and bring the infection to an end.Show more
No one can be totally prepared for a zombie apocalypse. No matter what preparations are made, some flaws can only be overcome by luck. When a group of well funded people decided years before to prepare for the end of civilization by building impenetrable shelters, they unknowingly left a legacy for a small band of survivors. Hordes of infected dead have swarmed across the world and destroyed civilization. Most of the world's population is dead, yet some people are determined to cling to life and are given a second chance when they learn the secrets of those shelters. On the coast of South Carolina and in the harbor of the beautiful city of Charleston, this small band of survivors is once more faced with the hard choices and risks they are forced to take. They can either hide in the safety of their impenetrable shelter on a small island, or they can fight back against the end of the world. Along the way they must hang onto their humanity while evolving to match the brutality of the new world. When they discover a massive shelter in Charleston that dwarfs their own shelter on Mud Island, they take one small step closer to giving the world back to the living. This is the continuing story of their fight against the infected dead and against the living who would try to take from them what they have.Show more
From the barrier islands of South Carolina to the scenic shores of Lake Norman in North Carolina and a hospital ship sailing alone in the Atlantic Ocean, the infected dead have destroyed most of the population of the world. Small groups of people band together, some with leaders who take their people down the road toward death and some with leaders who make the decisions that keep their followers alive. This is the continuing story of the Mud Island survivors who have a plan to save a small part of humanity. As they live on in a shelter that is the dream of every survivalist, they find they must venture out into the world once again to help a lost friend, braving not only the infection, but radioactive fallout from a nuclear reactor, and the groups of survivors who are ready to take from them everything they have, including their lives.Show more
