Christopher Cole’s Outbreak is a novel about Sonny Daniels, a kid who had the misfortune to be alive during a zombie outbreak. Life as he knew it was turned upside down as panic gripped the world, leaving carnage in its wake. In the search for a relatively safe shelter, he had to adapt to survive and watched the plague diminish the population. Outbreak is full of terrifying scenes highlighting the best and worst aspects of humanity at a time of crisis. A break from the typical zombie story, this action-packed novel takes readers through a youngster’s point of view as he forced himself to grow up beyond his years to stay alive. Book 1 of the Dark Days Series is an exciting introduction to Sonny Daniels's dystopian world.
Christopher Cole’s Outbreak is a page-turner! It’s been a terrifying and awesome read for me. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the story did not revolve around the typical military/cop lead character. I loved how Sonny evolved from a sheltered son to a tough young man intent on protecting those he loved while trying to keep his humanity intact. His crash course in survival is chilling and realistic. Outbreak is also full of interesting characters which I’m excited to read more about. Some gripping and gruesome scenes made me bite my nails, they were so intense! It made me think about how I would fare in a zombie apocalypse. I would definitely love to read the next book and can’t wait to discover what becomes of Sonny and his friends.
