I received a promotional e-copy of Affliction Z: Patient Zero (Post Apocalyptic Thriller) by L.T. Ryan when it was first released. Frankly, it has taken me a while to get un-busy to where I can read it. Currently I’m about a quarter of the way in, and I am ENJOYING it!
The short of it — because I’m busy right now and really don’t have time to type a book review (sorry Mr. Ryan) — is that about a dozen top-notch military guys (SEALS, Rangers, etc) get dropped into somewhere without much information. They have their mission details but what they don’t have is intel on what they’re getting into … and shortly after they arrive they find out they’re in the middle of a zombie outbreak! Beyond that, I can’t give spoilers (nor would I) simply because I have the other three quarters of the book yet to read …. which may well happen soon as I’ve been having problems putting it down.
Things I particularly like about Affliction Z: Patient Zero…
- I’m not an expert but I know quite a few things, and the military references seem spot on.
- The chapters are easily read in chunks — this is good for a person who loves to read yet doesn’t have much time.
- The situation the military guys are in is palpable! For me it pops off the e-page. I feel that I’m there with them in an unclear and unpredictable situation.
L.T. Ryan has quite a few books to his credit — two of which are part of the Affliction Z series, and he says he’s looking to write more. I’m only 25% of the way into Patient Zero, but I know I want to get my hands on Affliction Z: Abandoned Hope (2013) and Affliction Z: Descended in Blood (2014).
Hey — I just found the AfflictionZ.com home page — L.T. Ryan says he has book 4 on the way!
