The Silent Army is book 2 in the Revivors series by James Knapp. This is a direct sequel to the awesome State of Decay. The series gives a new twist on the zombie trope.
In this novel, Special Agent Nico Wachalowski has not recovered from the death of his love, Faye. However, to stop Fawkes, Nico might have to kill the woman he loved again as Faye is now a reviver working for Fawkes who is building his own silent army of revivers and has gained control of weapons that kill thousands.
The novel is filled with lots of conspiracy, social commentary and ideas on what make a human (even after they are dead). Highly recommend as it is a 4 star story! Only complaint is that the various narratives are not as smooth as the previous book, but it won’t keep a reader from enjoying it.
The pulse-pounding sequel to State of Decay
Federal agent Nico Wachalowski must stop Samuel Fawkes from awakening his own private army of zombies even if it means killing the woman he loves-now resurrected as a "Revivor"-permanently.
