The Purge of Babylon: A Novel of Survival (Purge of Babylon, Book 1) by Sam Sisavath (Book 2014)

It seems like recently as of late, any time I try to delve into a new book series, I always get some crap book that has just wasted my free month of Prime renting. This book was yet another one of those.

I thought it would be a regular zombie story, but it ended up being a zombie/vampire mix where the speed of the infection spread was similar to that of a zombie novel, but there was a command and control structure, much like how a vampire/thrall relationship would be. Do you know how lame it is to read such a story? Trust me...it's quite lame. I'm all for authors trying to break away from the norm but if you do something like this you have to have a backstory of the vamp side...because if you don't it just gets way too boring to have a one-sided view of things.

On top of this, the main 2 SWAT/ex-soldier peeps are like indestructible Rambo types so it makes things more unrealistic. Yeah obviously I didn't like this book at all. The characters were blah, the story was blah, some of the adventures were OK, but yeah no thank you for the long haul.
