    1. What I learned that in Recht s books, people are terrifying than zombies Not an original idea, but well executed here This book does not suffer from the middle book syndrome that book two out of three in a trilogy entries do The fast pace and constant action of the first book is present here as well Now the wait for 3 begins


    2. After reading the first book of this series, I felt compelled to find out what happened with the plot and the characters I expected the sequel to be about the same or possibly worse than the first, but I really enjoyed the concept of 28 Days Later style infected who turn into shambling zombies after being killed I was pleasantly shocked to find the sequel to be a great improvement from the first in the writing style and in the story If you ve read the first, you need to read this If you haven t [...]


    3. The good times started by the Morningstar virus in Plague of the Dead just keep on coming Society has almost completely crumbled worldwide Francis Sherman is leading the ragtag remnants of a group of soldiers and refugees across the U.S from the west coast to hopefully meet up with friend and Morningstar expert, Anna Demilio, in Omaha at a research facility where they hope to develop a vaccine Sherman has new problems not limited to zombies Supplies are low and hard to come by, and gangs of stil [...]


    4. Succinctly, Z A Recht loves the zombie genre, with a military edge He has developed some interesting twists on the standard elements.The execution is sophomoric The characters are almost strictly stereotypes, the tension vehicles are overplayed, and there is no worry that the good guys will win out No sense that this couldn t be a Hollywood script.Still, I found it easier to finish than Brian Keene s _The Rising_, which reads as the work of a man who wants to hurt women and make money with as li [...]


    5. Thunder and Ashes starts out where the first book left off in this trilogy We have the split story, one of General Sherman and his team of army men and civilians making their way from the west coast towards Omaha, hoping to meet up with Anna Demilio and her much smaller group coming in from the east coast They are racing towards a facility where they hope to hatch a vacine for the Morningstar virus, the plague that has swept over the world creating two forms of plague victims, one still alive, f [...]


    6. 4.5 stars These are some of my favorite zombie books Even though there are military characters, it isn t all military action There are some normal folks who can kick some butt It is exciting, a few groups are all making their way to the same spot, bad humans as well as zombies get in the way I care about many of the characters there are quite a few, so some are fairly flat and I cannot wait until I get my hands on the next one Great stuff.


    7. The first thing I need to say before getting into the review is that it will have spoilers to a few things that happen in book one, so if you read this and haven t read book one, it will spoil the story for you As this is one of my favourite zombie series EVER I urge you to read the books before my reviews if you love zombie action OK now strap yourself in and lets get into this review.It picks up exactly where the first one cuts off Sherman s group get back on the road after the disaster at Hya [...]


    8. Three bands of survivors, all working their way to the same place a research facility in Omaha, Nebraska where a vaccine for the Morningstar virus can possibly be developed.The first group are former soldiers from the U.S.S Ramage Krueger, Keaton, Thomas, Wilson, Brewster and former General Sherman Also with them are Mbutu, Ron, Katie, Rebecca a nurse , Jack and Mitsui both former general contractors with the latter speaking Japanese only , and Denton, a photographer.The second group consists of [...]


    9. I m always a little wary of the second book in a trilogy, but reading Thunder and Ashes was a bit different than normal Although The Morningstar Strain is a trilogy, this is the last book in the series fully written by Z.A Recht the third one is partly ghost written and I ve read it several years ago, so I was pretty much aware of what I was getting myself into.The first book in the series, Plague of the Dead, is very much about establishing the characters, the virology and the collapse of the w [...]


    10. In Thunder and Ashes, the second book in Z A Recht s The Morningstar Strain, readers pick up with the survivors three months later The Morningstar Strain has swept the globe, and the survivors find themselves divided, but trying to find their way towards each other in an effort to create a vaccine As Dr Demilio and her group flee from rogue NSA agents to a research facility in Omaha, General Sherman and his compatriots trek from the west coast towards the good doctor Along the way, the soldiers [...]


    11. I really enjoyed Plague of the Dead While not particularly original, Recht demonstrated a genuine talent for action and suspense, and created a vivid zombie scorched earth that made his characters fear seem real.Unfortunately I didn t feel the same about Thunder and Ashes Firstly, Recht s prose came across like a fan boy describing his Call of Duty gameplay Where Plague had skilful plainspeak, Thunder and Ashes, came across as an early draft of a good manuscript with lots of lazy tell exposition [...]


    12. Well as i Reviewed the First book Plague of the Dead i felt like that book was lacking and it didn t keep my interest as i thought it mightbut i read the second one anyway Thunder and ashes I have to say i definitely enjoyed this book much better than the first i thought that the first book was a lot of explaining and people fighting other people and little Z action, However the second book has a really great mix of both People and Zombie action I enjoyed how they ran into other people and somet [...]


    13. This book is the sequel to the first book I did The story follows the same idea of shadowing the different groups trying to survive The main objective both groups is to get to Omaha, Nebraska, to find a cure for the ravid virus Each group going through life threatning issues At the end of the book the groups finally meet up, but the book quickly ends The suspenseful ending leaves you hanging for the last final book in the seris I gave this book five stars because I love it It has a story, charac [...]


    14. It was so good, that I read it in a day, but kept procrastinating to put this book on I really loved the first book of the series, because it involved two things that are very action packed the army and zombies I actually had a date planned out on my calender for when the next book would be released and I went to a bookstore, ran right to the shelf where it was and checked out This book did not let me down It had three different stories going on at the same time and each story was not confusing [...]


    15. I read this book over the summer It is the second book in the Morningstar Strain series It involves General Sherman s group traveling to Omaha, Nebraska In this book, the group encounters raiders, other survivors and zombies then the first book The second group in the book is Ex CIA Agent Mason s group, with 3 survivors, a doctor and a news reporter They plan to meet up in Omaha, and eventually they do.I really enjoyed this book I feel it was the best one so far, Recht did a great job on this b [...]


    16. Thunder and Ashes is a good zombie novel Set several months after the outbreak of the Morningstar Virus and the first novel Plague of the Dead, Thunder and Ashes follows several groups of survivors as they make their way to Omaha where they expect to find a research facility On the way they encounter the infected sprinters crazed cannibals like in 28 Days Later , and shamblers the undead version of the aforementioned sprinters , and the bandits that would predictably flourish in such a post apoc [...]


    17. The quality did not degrade for this sequel to Plague of the Dead Recht continued to focus on the strong points from his first book the challenges of survival and getting around after the zombie apocalypse This novel also includes a pitched battle between raiders and a settlement of survivors Bonus points for Shaun of the Dead and a few other pop geek culture references The ending was definitely set up for a third book and I am very hopeful that Permuted Press and Recht s friends can manage to c [...]


    18. 3.5 zombie bitesNot a bad 2nd installment Our groups are all attempting to converge on the Omaha office to begin the work to find a cure yeah, right Didn t they watch the walking dead Anywho, our survivors are not under threat from zombies, so much as other humans With a breakdown in society and government, each is out for their own Things come to a bloody end, just how I like it Not too bad Not as good as the Autumn series but entertaining and a nice curveball with runners this is known


    19. such a horrible novel the story concept is fine, but the characters feel very one dimensional and everything that happens is predictable Not to mention that the editing sucks time isn t consistent What has only been a few weeks is consistently and repeatedly referred to throughout the book as a few months Very annoying Save your energy and read another zombie novel.


    20. I love a good zombie read I was on the edge of my seat throughout most of this book and I couldn t help but hope for a cure If you re a fan of Dawn of the Dead or other horror movies, you ll enjoy Thunder Ashes I give it four stars.


    21. Meh Great as an audiobook to listen to while doing other things I only paid attention about half the time and that was plenty.



    22. 5 5 in zombie books category.I m quite sad to see this book getting poor reviews, due to its theme or way it was written I mean, if you don t like zombies, just don t read it.However, as a true zombie enthusiast I have to say that this book is a true masterpiece It a true example of what a zombie book should beWITHOUT UNNECESSARYdetails like a shitty and usually teenage love stories b stereotypical I used to suck at life but now my gaming time has paid off charactersSo, why has this book earned [...]


    23. The second book in the Morningstar Strain series is far superior than the first While that one had a lot of setup, Thunder And Ashes mixes great action sequences with believable human drama It s good stuff.I listened to the audiobook, and a sequence in which the group battles over a town is an edge of your seat nail biter that lasts just over an hour It s epic, and make me really uneasy about losing characters that I love.My favorite characters, though, are Mason and Anna They do see some action [...]


    24. What a fantastic idea Exactly how zombies should work What a terrible set of characters and an awful story line The stupidity of every character in this series of books is mind boggling Recht needed a couple of friends and a good editor to read this book to deal with all the story holes and idiotic decisions I d give it 1 star but the strength of the zombie mechanics was so, that it got me through the whole trilogy This book will stay with me for a long time, unfortunately This is one of those b [...]


    25. Well, goodness, I am loving this series Action, zombies, shamblers, soldiers, sailors, bad people, good people and above all, action I actually like the characters and mourn just a bit if they die but this moves along so quickly that there is no time to be spent regretting a loss I m starting right in on the third one of the series and can hardly wait to get going.


    26. I don t quite understand, but I liked this submediocre book The characters were likable but not realistic The plot was dumb in places but acceptable It was definitely better than the first book in the series I suppose I liked it because it did its job, if only barely.



    27. Thunder and Ashes follows three groups of Morningstar Virus survivors When infected the virus causes you to become the living dead The first set is lead by a couple of military men who are trying to get to Omaha Over the course of their travels they find themselves helping a survivors village deal with some ruthless bandits The second group contains the doctor who is considered an expert on The Morningstar Virus She is attempting to get to Omaha so she can work on a vaccine Survivor groups one a [...]


    28. This book is a thrilling fantasy The book is also a member of a good series This book does not compare to any other book I read about this topic This book has thrilling action and raids It is zombie packed This book has leaders but it is not based on their perspectives It is talk between all the characters They are human, and they face zombies and raiders The setting is all over the United States, they are heading to a town, that is their objective This book is mostly realistic The zombies are t [...]
