Last Stand on Zombie Island is a novel that is terrifying in its authenticity, and still heartwarming in its belief of the resiliency of human nature. It approaches the terror of a zombie outbreak from a logical standpoint, and in using logic, shows how the human race could survive such a disaster. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel, although some scenes are quite graphic. Then again, what can one expect when reading about zombies? This is one of those rare novels that people from all genres can find interesting. This is a thoroughly worthwhile, totally engrossing novel.
The world is at war. When a virus mutates from animals to infect humans and turn them to zombies, the virus spreads like wildfire and the world as we know it comes to a very rapid end. At least that’s the story in this novel. Yet this novel is not about the zombies, it is instead about the survivors and how humanity is changed after such a catastrophic occurrence. Services are gone, law and order gone as well, and martial law is in full effect. Families shattered, lives destroyed, and yet, through it all, a ragtag group of survivors (some military, some civilian, all bewildered) will fight with everything they have left to preserve the human race and stop the zombies from destroying the last vestiges of humanity. Some will emerge as better and stronger citizens in spite of the carnage. Some will emerge on the bottom of the societal chain, with their gangster and thug attitudes. Some will not emerge at all. Take a ride with the survivors and see where the carnage leads.
