    Description

    In this riveting, “gory, and action-packed” (Jonathan Maberry) survival thriller, set in the expansive world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead series, three people from different walks of life in China must join forces against the typhoon of undead as chaos sweeps over Asia. 

    In the aftermath of the zombie virus outbreak, what remains of the Chinese government has estimated that one billion walkers (called jiangshi) are currently roaming through the country. Across this dramatic landscape, large groups of survivors have clustered together for safety in villages and towns that have been built vertically as a means of protection against the unceasing wave of jiangshi.

    In one of these settlements, scavengers of vastly different backgrounds struggle to provide supplies for the survival of thousands. Before this devastation, Zhu was one of millions of poor farmers who left their rural roots for the promise of consistent employment in one of China’s booming factory towns. Ella was a Chinese American grad student who was studying abroad for the semester. Hengyen was a grizzled military officer of some renown and a passionate believer in his nation’s ability to surmount any obstacle.

    Zhu, as the leader of the team Ella is a part of, reports to Hengyen. But with the settlement’s 5,000 mouths to feed and the scavengers having to travel further and further in search of food, Zhu ends up at his home village, where he is shocked to find survivors. Does he force them to join the settlement or keep their existence a secret?

    Meanwhile, Hengyen is tasked with the impossible: fortifying the Beacon against a 100,000-strong “typhoon” of walkers header their way. Even though he realizes that the Beacon hardly stands a chance, Hengyen is a believer and will stand with his compatriots to the very last, bringing him into conflict with Zhu, who intends to flee the path of the typhoon and make for the safety of China’s dramatic mountain ranges before it’s too late. 

    Given “two decaying thumbs up,” (Jonathan Mayberry, author of Rot & Ruin), this book is sure to get your heart racing and leave you wanting more!

    An amazing journey

    So much is done right in this book! The atmosphere is great. The situations are nerve wracking, and the story is phenomenal! I love the different plot points that interconnect and the race towards time against the typhoon makes the reader at the edge of your seat! Overall really good!

    first book in the series I've read..

    and I really enjoyed this! I'm so glad they are expanding on the WD world. This story, completely original, really stands up against his other work. I really look forward to more books outside the main comic storyline.

    I didn't like it

    I'm a big fan of the waking dead, but this one just didn't get my interest at all. I wanted to like it. But I just couldn't finish it.

    Hope to see it on screen one day. More stories from around the world in this universe should be done.

    interesting additional to the WDU

    Been a fan of Wesley Chu since I read his first the Two series a couple years back. Since then, he's continued to expand the Quasing universe and introduced us into time tracker scavenging. so when I saw he wrote a book base in the WD universe, I knew I had to get it. Overall, I think this was a solid addition to the series, filled with vivid characters and an interesting geographical location. Like all of the previous books I've read in Chu's collection, once I started this one, I didn't want to put it down. I wouldn't mind a few more books from him in this universe, but please let the Living Revolution stay dead.
