Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this one right after I finished the first installment.

It was quite strong, if not stronger than the first, introducing elements far beyond moment to moment survival.

If you liked the first one, you will certainly like this one. I sure did.

Without any spoilers, it is hard to explain why I gave it 4 rather than the 5 stars I gave the first one.

Basically, the end of the book starts to take the story in a direction I am not sure I am going to like. It makes me nervous that a series I really came to like may noise dive in the third book (which I already ordered and am reading at the time I write this).

I really loved this until the very end. Now I am nervous about the series conclusion.

Great story about a U.S Air Force pilot who, when the dead start to rise, made the decision to try and survive on his own rather than sit in a military bunker, waiting to be saved. Was this a good choice? Read the book and find out, I am sure you will love it.

Written as a diary, it gives the reader a different, and very refreshing perspective. Once you start reading it, I am sure that like me, you will not want to put it down. The story never gets dull or boring, nor does it go to the extreme in a vain attempt to simply keep you reading. The characters are well built, interesting, and realistic. Unlike many books, the characters in the story feel as if they could be real, thus helping the reader really connect with them and their situation.

This is the first of at least two books. The other is expected to be published sometime in early 2010 as "Beyond Exile: Day by Day Armageddon". There is also one chapter (located at the end of the book) of another book being written by the same author, of another story set in the same universe as this book. The other book is to be called "Dead Land". Though no release date has been set as of yet.

Though one thing is sure, by the time you get to the end of this first book, you will be dying to get your hands on the second one to see what happens next!

By Jeffrey Swystun TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on Aug. 8 2010
Format: Paperback
This book delivers on all the aspects of zombie apocalypse fiction that I enjoy: a rapidly disintegrating world, scary scenarios of survival, and more or less traditional zombies. The format of the main character capturing his story in a journal can be disjointed and clumsy but here it works. And to be honest, this is not high-fiction but it sure is entertaining and fast-paced. Lines like this give you a taste for what is in store: "America, I'm sorry to report that despite our best efforts, this disease has broken the bonds of our containment measures. It is no longer safe to inhabit larger cities. Safe zones are being established on the outskirts of high population areas and will be open to those not infected." If you are fan of zombie and/or post-apocalyptic fiction, you will enjoy this contribution. I also encourage you to visit the author's website, [...], for his list of other books in this genre.

From the first page, I wasn't able to put it down. The style (first person journal entries) is well used and doesn't get tedious or boring to read. The book was obviously well researched and a great deal was taken from the author's personal experience (serving USN officer) and this lends a great deal of legitimacy to the events depicted.

Excellent book (series) for those who enjoy the zombie genre. Highly recommended.

If you thought that the first book "Day by Day Armageddon" pulled you in and got you hooked, then the second book in the series "Beyond Exile: Day by Day Armageddon" will not disappoint.

"Beyond Exile" is a great continuation of the story in the first book. We again follow the nameless main character in a world devastated by the rise of the living dead. The book continues in the original style of a diary where the main character explains in vivid detail his encounters with the dead and other survivors he finds along the way.

I do not want to give away the story but to say that it unfolds in such a way that would teach some other author a few things about how to write a great zombie book.

Only big problem with this book is that the main character seems to be able to do a little too much. For a naval pilot, he is now a master of Army/Marine tactics and knows more about them then the Marines he now somehow "commands". The Marines are portrayed as being lost and very unorganized without an officer in charge. Well that is until the main character takes charge. Maybe I could believe some of his skills if he was an officer in the Army or Marines, but not a pilot. Some things do apply, but it is simply not the same thing.

I also found the ending of the book to be VERY rushed. Seems like the last chapter was written very quickly just to get the book out to the publisher, as it simply summarizes what happens instead of explaining things like he does throughout the rest of the book.

Other than that, it was a good read and is worth picking up! Make sure to pick up the first book before reading this one so that everything makes sense.
