The UK is infected and Warren is going to be a hero, whether he likes it or not. Life used to be simple; a journalist addicted to his work, Warren's world has been a simple process of annoying friends, shunning family, and doing only what Warren wants.
As a virulent plague of unknown origin spreads rapidly across the UK, all of that is about to change. The only person Warren doesn't question is himself as his natural curiosity and world-weary cynicism come to the fore in his clumsy attempts at survival.
With the UK in chaos and the government in hiding, will Warren even be able to survive long enough to start finding the answers to the questions eating away inside him? And when he finally realises that there are people in this blighted world that he actually loves, will he be able to do what needs to be done to keep them safe before it is too late?
The characters are humorous, hateful and loveable. Being a fan of characters and their development I was delighted that Warren Fielding was so fun to read about. He had a dark humor and that bitter British wit that had me laughing when I probably shouldn't have. I could have read hours of just him and his sister arguing, they were highly entertaining.
Overall, I wasn’t disappointed. The book had everything a good horror should have: Gore, Believable Characters, Intense Situations & Vengeance. It did, however, end on a note that made me a little antsy. I’d wished for a bit more of a conclusion but if I’m correct, the author has the second book in the wings.
