My friend from across the pond, Sean T. Page, shot me a review copy of Metahorde.
This book sinks it’s teeth into you from the very first page and does not let go until the very last. Even then it makes you wonder what’s going to happen next!
What is a Metahorde? Well.. I don’t suppose I’m giving anything away here… The horde itself is, of course, zombies. Lots of zombies. The meta part is.. well.. LOTS more.. As in millions.
Consider the size of a hurricane as it moves and swirls, replace the rain and wind with zombies and you have a hint as to what the Metahorde is.
Taking place in the year 2020, small pockets of civilization survive on the brink of starvation in a totally destroyed Europe. The zombies number well into the multiple of millions and roam vast dead zones (no pun intended). Make no mistake they are a force to be reckoned with, however, the zombies used to roam around haphazardly in random directions. Something has happened that has made them organize together into massive hordes, that has made even the most sturdy structure crumble to the hungering march of the Metahorde.
When the throngs of zombies move through there is little to stop them.
Let’s pause for just a moment to ponder something..
The planet’s population is just under 7 billion. Seven Billion. 7,000,000,000. New York has a population of about 8 million. United Kingdom; about 62 million. Paris; about 2 million.
Assume even a moderate outbreak of just 25% of the total population turns to zombies in the matter of a couple of weeks; that’s 1,750,000,000. That’s a lot of zombies! And we all know that there are many who simply won’t survive the initial outbreak, I’d venture to say that within a month at least 50% of the population will be zombies. Given 6 months.. I’d almost say that only 15 to 20 percent of that initial 7 billion will still be among the living.
Are you pondering that yet? Yeah, that’s a shit-load of zombies all hungry for your ass.
Now you get an idea of what Metahorde is all about.
It’s a page turner, no question there.
Then again, I tend to read these books more as manuals rather than for the fiction that some would claim them to be.
Hit up Amazon and order this puppy today, you won’t regret it.
