Book 2 of 'Day by Day Armageddon'
Sporadic news reports indicate chaos and violence spreading through US cities. An unknown evil is sweeping the planet. The dead are rising to claim the earth as the new dominant species in the food chain. Day by Day Armageddon and its sequel Beyond Exile are the handwritten journals of one desperate survivor as he battles in the face of global disaster. Zombie fiction at its finest, these books will take you to a whole new level of terror.
Our Naval Officer has survived the attack by the raiders and secured the base and its occupants. When the next attack comes, the occupants of Hotel 23 realise that the attackers are military wanting the contents of the base and the resources it may provide. Knowing that they eventually cannot survive lots of attacks, our Naval officer does the one thing the military would not expect. He puts on his uniform and goes topside to take effective command of the units.
The population of Hotel 23 suddenly increases ten fold and contact is made with the remnants of the military currently running operations from Naval vessels.
A branch of the government, known as Remote Six, help our officer after he crash lands on a reconnaissance mission in a supplied helicopter. But are they really here to help, or do they have their own agenda...
Enjoyed this book, as the 288 pages again seemed to disappear quite rapidly. The descriptions are well written, enabling you envisage the situations that the officer finds himself in. Although we still do not know his name, it does not matter, the story stands up on its own merits.
