The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. Its hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

A solid second book. There are some of the same old zombie cliches but the characters and story are interesting enough that I don't mind. I hope the next (final?) book is released soon.
