The Final Plague #1

The Final Plague has begun, and with it mankind’s final
hours.  Can a rural Iowan family survive
the initial onslaught of crazed, rabid animals, presumably the product of a
mutated super-virus?  Or will they
succumb to the plague that threatens to end all life as we know it?
More zombie apocalypse you say? 
Well, technically yes, but not in quite a manner the genre is accustomed
to.  The Final Plague is another of
Action Lab’s new Danger Zone books, and they continue to impress.  This fresh new take on the undead threat is
one that is very welcomed (ok, zombies, maybe fresh isn’t the best word).

Tomb Raider

She presses herself against the rock wall, breathing shallow and listening intently. Two men, a crackling campfire, conversation hushed, but casual. One of them bitching at the other about a book he’d found on the last freighter that washed ashore. She’s outmatched, but she’s got no choice.There’s no way around them, only through. She waits for her moment. She may be smaller, weaker, but she’s smart.
One of the men stands up, declares his intent to relieve himself, and wanders away from the campfire. Lara waits a moment, then creeps forward, silently. Pulling her bow from her shoulder, she moves behind the man warming his hands at the fire. In a flash of motion, she’s drawn the bow across his throat, knee in his back. He makes wet, choking noises and struggles for a moment, but she’...
