"The first book of an exciting new paranormal series from two award-winning authors about what happens when an alien race brings Earth to the brink of the Apocalypse. The husband and wife writing team of Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes continue to achieve extraordinary literary feats with this first book in the exciting new Devil's Wake series. Due's The Living Blood and My Soul to Keep were each named to Publishers Weekly's list of Best Novels of the Year, and both were nominated for the Bram Stoker award. Barnes scored New York Times' bestsellers with The Legacy of Heorot and Star Wars: The Cestus Deception, and he has been nominated for both the Hugo and Cable Ace awards for his work in television.The eeriness of Devil's Wake begins a week after tomorrow. An unprecedented infection has swept across the world, bringing an epidemic of mindless biting attacks from the infected that leave their victims "changed." Society has broken down. The victims are more than mindless zombies. They are the result of a sinister alien life-form in the wake of the aliens' insidious plot, humanity ultimately becomes enmeshed in a brutal struggle for control of its home, planet Earth.Part Dawn of the Dead and part Road Warrior, Devil's Wake is a testimony to courage, friendship, and the power of faith. Horrifying and heartbreaking, exciting and challenging, it is a compelling, brilliant story on the edge of what could be the end of it all"--… (mais)

Readable and engaging zombie apocalypse that follows a multicultural group of teens as they make their way through Oregon to California in a bus, looking for a place to take them in. The tone is definitely older YA, and even though this is a zombie novel, it's not that gory or explicit. I found it to be an entertaining, light read, but I felt it ended abruptly and didn't follow up on some of the more interesting threads, such as the origins of the zombie plague; it felt like it was setting up for a sequel.

I'm not really into zombie stories but this one was interesting. ( )

This year, the office where I work brought in someone to give people flu shots, making it easier for people to get them. Despite the fact that I declined the invite and didn’t fill out the paperwork, one of the admin at the office still called me to bully me into getting one. Peer pressure does not work on me for things I don’t want to do, so I didn’t get one. I’m opposed to them for a lot of reasons, one of which being my fear of needles, but that’s not the only reason, despite coworkers insistence that I need to stop being a ‘wussy.’ Thanks to Devil’s Wake, I have a new reason to dislike the flu shot: it could totally turn you into a zombie.

A solid zombie story. ( )

This was a fun quick read about some teen "juvies" and their adventures surving zombies and nasty humans. The characters were engaging and interesting; the dialogue natural; in fact, the whole writing style was even, easy and smooth. No lagging plot, yet not frantic either; a very good rhythm. But once again, it was the characters that made this so engaging. It ended a little abruptly; I wish it hadn't ended at all. ( )
