Welcome to the mountains of Pennsylvania, one of the last vestiges of the human race.
Lance York, a self-described loser in another life, has rediscovered himself in the midst of the apocalypse. Along with a cadre of other survivors, including the hardened, sexy Cass, Lance has taken refuge in a compound, struggling to survive the onslaught of monstrosities descending upon them each night.
The horrors that have devoured mankind are changing, their minds rebooting like a computer. Intelligence, the lone advantage of the humans, is returning to the infected. They ravage the compound with calculated, precise strikes, chiseling away at the defenses Lance and his friends have erected.
With the help of new ally Major Frank Colt, the flickering flame of the old world must fight to stave off the extinguishing tidal wave of the new one.

Is this the end of the human race? Ralph and most of his men were dead. It was several weeks later and Lance was still hurting from the knife wound in his shoulder. Now he had the added job of running the camp. Cass was second in command and Doc Emmett Brown took care of the camp’s sick and dying.
Night patrol guards armed with guns and powerful flashlights watched for the Vlads. But something was happening to the monsters and it was bad news for the humans. They were starting to evolve, to think and communicate.
I particularly enjoyed the banter between Cass and Lance. They loved each other but still had to squabble. It added some lightness to the darkness of the story. It seems that Lance just can’t catch a break. Everything is going so well but then the Vlads begin acting differently. Then a General shows up with a tank and soldiers. He acts like he wants to offer them protection but his real reason is quite different. He dislikes Lance but acts friendly enough yet Lance doesn’t trust him. Cass is also concerned about the soldiers and the tank. When the General comes back after a scouting run and tells them Lance was killed by the Vlads, Cass doesn’t believe him.
Tanks, choppers, and murder keep the story moving forward. Just when things look blackest the writer throws in a twist. Keeping the reader guessing as to what will happen next. I just loved this series and the ending leaves a hint for more books.
Wayne June did an excellent job of narration. His voices were good, he spoke clearly and concisely. He really got into the characters to inflect danger, fear and excitement in his telling. Wonderful job!
