A new novel in John Ringo's best-selling Black Tide Rising series. The sequel to The Valley of Shadows.
Tom Smith used to be somebody. Now he's just another refugee, fleeing the smoking ruins of civilization.
Well, maybe not just another refugee.
Late of the Bank of the Americas where he used to be the global managing director for security, Tom and his fellow survivors watched New York City burn. His plan to the save New York long enough to find a cure for the zombie virus hadn't survived the bloody scrimmage between angry cops, cunning gangsters, and rapacious City officials.
Now only millions of infected humans, driven mad by the highly infectious tailored rabies virus, inhabited the city.
But Tom and some trusted allies were able to stay one step ahead and escaped offshore. Now they're holed up in a safe house in coastal Virginia and it's time to break out.
Between him and his objective, one of the bank's prepared evacuation camps in the Cumberland Valley, are hundreds of miles of clogged roads, burnt-out towns, and howling mobs of infected humans who know only hunger. He must corral his motley team, complete with middle-schoolers, to navigate the treacherous landscape.
And yet he feels his odds are good.
But there's always someone smarter. And they like things just the way they are.
Without a fat checkbook and the team of hired spec-ops mercenaries it used to bring, how will Tom Smith fend off entrepreneurial marauders, a brilliant sociopath or two, and a kill-count hungry member of the E-4 mafia?
And if he pulls it off, no one is sure how they will they re-start civilization.
But Tom Smith has the spark of an idea.

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!!
