Publisher's Summary

The seeds of mutiny are growing....

The northernmost outpost of the eastern flank has gone dark. Captain Steele and the commanders of Operation Homefront shift forces north to find out what happened to the Marines stationed there.

But, all is not right at Camp Forge.

An outbreak of debilitating illness ravages through the base, forcing Gwen on a journey through Iowa to find medicine to treat the sick, including her niece.

Meanwhile, the tension is building between the various factions holding the line against the dead.

The dead are gathering across the Mississippi River, waiting for their chance to overrun the thin, divided front and finish off the battered remains of America.

Can Steele and Gwen survive the coming storm? Or is their fate falling with the winter snow?

This makes for a very intense commute.

I love listening to audible books while I'm making my daily commutes to and from work. Keith Szarabajka was so good in this book, and Greenes material has proven to be consistently, nail-bitingly good. Although being stuck in traffic, or rather, sitting in a pop-up parking lot which in its off hours midnights as an interstate does make me think we could use a good old fashioned zombie apocalypse. These books have made it all tolerable. And BOOOOOOM goes the dynamite with this entry, Greene really blew the roof off this one and has delivered yet again! The Holding, the 5th entry into The End Time Saga dropped this past December and as I’ve said with every entry thus far they just get better and better! This entry finds Steele and his seasoned veteran band of warriors tucked away in Iowa. Everybody is nestled in for winter enjoying their Christmas vacation and much deserved time off from the religious fervor of zealots, human BBQ’s, and the questionable loyalty of ruthless biker gangs. Oh and not to mention the undead hordes of the reanimated, yeah, they came too. Everyone just puts their differences and Tomahawks aside, comes together, and celebrates the arrival of Ole St Nick, the birth of baby Jesus, the spinning of Dreidel’s and enjoys the most wonderful time of the year. Oops wrong book. At the end of the final chapter I swear, I could hear, faintly playing in the background, The Sword, playing (The Night the Sky Cried) Tears of Fire…
“Looking out across the void
We beheld a fearsome sight
Two armadas arrayed before us
Preparing to unleash their might”
I don’t give any spoilers but if you are a fan of series you won’t be able to put this down, but don’t lose your head quite yet, we’ve got one more to go!! It took me awhile to get this review in as I HAD to finish his second entry into his Civil War book series Northern Hunt, soo gooood!! Greene really nailed this one and I can’t wait for the final entry in this legendary series.

Best zombie series!!!

Another great read, this series is my favorite. I’m ready for the next book!!! This book was pretty intense, it had me on the edge of my seat especially towards the end I didn’t want to get out of my car i was hooked. I love this series and the character development just keeps getting better. As always great writing with a great reader makes another awesome book.

Talk about leaving you hanging!!

Once again an outstanding story line
This author has a natural and real way of explaining this journey with every character.
Twist and t urns that I never saw coming!! Some sad but some exciting. I immensely how the story line goes day by day. You are experiencing their daily battle of staying alive.
This is well written and calls to me to keep listening to the next book. Unfortunately I will have to wait but I know it will be with the wait.

In search of a brain

I've enjoyed the series so far, but I really hope the main characters grow a brain in the next book. The main protagonists are so clueless and make such stupid choices you almost wish for the bad guys to win.

You can build tension in a story without making your characters into simpletons.

Not my favorite

Out of all of Green’s books, this one so far is my least favorite! It’s a downer of a book, by the end I kept thinking, why am I still listening, it all just gets worse as you go and by the end, it’s down right depressing!! It would of been nice to have some lightness in it!! I’m just not sure I’ll listen to the next one and there will have to be a next one because of the way the book ended, it was pretty bleak!

The most boring book in the series

This one just drags on and on. The pastor betrayed you again? Shocking! Killed my interest in the series.

Worst operator ever

Steele has to have the poorest situational awareness I have ever seen. I only made it this far in the series, because my choices are as bad as his.
