(The Rule of Three, book 1)
Eric Walters
"A fantastic, compelling, unforgettable book! Its simple premise--what if one day all modern technology stopped working--becomes a blisteringly fast tale of survival in a world gone to hell . . . This book makes The Walking Dead look like a walk in the park, because the monsters howling outside your gates aren't the undead but your friends, your fellow students, your co-workers."
