THROUGH THE RAGING PLAGUE
At Tom Smith’s previous gig, he was the global managing director for security of an international bank. Then the zombies emerged. And New York burned. His plan to save the city long enough to find a cure for the zombie virus didn’t survive a bloody scrimmage between angry cops, cunning gangsters, and rapacious officials.
Tom and a few trusted allies were able to stay one step ahead and barely escape. Now they seek refuge in the bank’s prepared evacuation retreat in the Cumberland Valley of Tennessee. But between Tom’s people and relative safety are hundreds of miles of clogged roads, burnt-out towns and howling mobs of infected humans who know only hunger. Plus there are gangs of the non-infected who would like nothing more than to defeat and enslave any weary travelers who happen their way.
And finally, if Tom does pull off the journey, no one is sure how they are going to restart civilization. But even for that, Tom Smith has the spark of an idea. And, as always, the beginnings of a plan. Which he is certain will change completely when the enemy strikes.

The characters in this part of the Black Tide Rising series aren't as interesting as those of the Wolf Squadron books - I think I'd feed most of them to the zombies. I did read this book in its entirety last night, starting shortly after the kindle version delivered, and I was anxious to see how it turned out.
Defeating the zombie menace and restoring human civilization looks like it's going to be harder and harder. Is it worth it?
Who is more dangerous: a psycho "super genius" with a plan and small army of killers or a megalomaniac NYC Bureaucrat spouting off PC nonsense with idiots buying into her nonsense? Tom Smith and his BotA cohorts will have to deal with both of these obstacles as well as the always present "Zombie" hoards. The action in the book moves from NYC to the Blue Ridge mountains and areas not too far from Ringo's Chattanooga home. The TVA and imaginative uses of electricity play a major role that I found most interesting. Readers will also get a good laugh (I did) from the 68 rules in Do s and Don'ts of a Zombie Apocalypse. A good sequel that I would give 4 1/2 Stars to.
The next book should put the Smith brothers in contact with each other and I am looking forward to reading it!
This mini series about Tom Smith is just not up to the standard, I thought the previous book was ok and hoped this would improve but I think it actually is slightly worse. Tom seems almost amateurish with his fights, his ambush setups etc. I think the bridge ambush was the worst because he was supposed to be working with fellow 'spec ops' guys too with the fall back and futher ambush very weak as well.
I would almost say to Power plant guys were better at war than Tom was!!! John Ringo reckons he never reads Amazon reviews anymore and I can understand why that might be but I have to say anything he does with other guys just does not have the same punch his genuine author books do have. Whoops, having said that, I have to admit the March Upcountry series was superb but Dave WEber is a superb authro that John worked with, Mike Massa is not in that same league I have read just about every single John Ringo books and all the different series and love them all so I really notice the difference in this one.
I think his Ghost series are just fantastic with incredible action until he brought in his 2nd author but also that series was getting to the end as well to be fair.
Also, I read a lot of Zombie Apoc type books too so if you do happen to read this reviwe John Love your books so hope you are resting up to try a new genre of maybe a 3rd Princess of Wands, that gal kicks butt!!
