Waking up one morning, he finds himself in the TV room with no supervision, no escorts and no morning dose of anti-psychotics.
Meanwhile, the world outside the walls of the facility has changed into a land of the walking dead. It takes some time for Mike to come out of his nightly dose of meds to realize that the dead have been reanimated and some are inside with him, wandering the halls seeking fresh victims. After initial contact with one, he escapes unbitten and is able to meet up with a few other fellow survivors.
These survivors consist of Kate, one of the doctors and a few patients. The story moves on from the asylum as they escape, run into more infected, a bad cop, a Target store night manager and of course, several thousand infected all while dragging along a couple of mental patients. This lends a nice spin to the plot as Mr. James beautifully incorporates it into the current flow of the story instead of sidetracking the reader with paragraphs or chapters that move away from the core of the tale. Mike slowly and eventually gets his memory back of what happened the night he allegedly killed his wife and the truth is shocking.
Or was it? I have to say that Mr. James has written one of the better novels in this genre to come my way in a long time. Dec 24, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: series-intro , fantasy , zombies. This was a really good zombie story that has it's own little twist. The main characters are somewhat light in the beginning but get fleshed out nicely by the end, though there is still room for more development.

The story is fast paced and brings things to a critical point pretty quickly. There is a bit of a mystery as to how things got started as well as the mystery surrounding the death of the main characters wife, though that seems to have been figured out. The language is straight and convey This was a really good zombie story that has it's own little twist.
The language is straight and conveys the thoughts and actions of the characters perfectly. The narrator is an ex-action hero and movie star, Michael McKnight, who was convicted of killing his wife and committed to a mental hospital as criminally insane. He does not remember killing her or anything else about that time, and they keep him so doped up he can barely function. When he wakes up and finds all the staff and a number of the patients gone he has no idea what happened until an orderly wanders in and eats the only other patient he has seen.
Michael meets Kate, a psychiatrist and some of her patients as he tries to escape the hospital. They get out together only to be confronted with the reality that the dead are walking and trying to kill them. Michael is having flashbacks and is sure that they are a way to redeem himself by saving the world, or maybe he really is crazy and its all a delusion. The zombies are gross, the infection is fast, and the world is being devastated quickly. The only thing that really annoyed me about this was that it seemed to end so abruptly.
I know there is another book but it could have given a better lead in for it. Still good though! Jan 26, Darke Conteur rated it it was ok. I found this book after I downloaded about seven free zombie books. None of the previous seven kept my attention for longer than the first page, and I was hesitant about reading this one, but after reading the sample, I decided to buy it.
Movie star Mike McKnight, incarcerated in a mental institute, wakes up from a psychotic drug-induced sleep into a world that's gone to hell. Zombies litter the landscape of his hospital, and after a brief fight with the undead, he meets up with some survivors a I found this book after I downloaded about seven free zombie books. Zombies litter the landscape of his hospital, and after a brief fight with the undead, he meets up with some survivors and head off to find a cure. I gave this book two stars because, as strong as the writing was which is why I purchased it , there were still too many things that I couldn't get into.
I understand it's a fantasy story, and for this type zombie there has to be a certain element of believing in the impossible, but for me, there has to be an thread of logic to keep me in that frame of mine. I can believe almost anything in a story as long as it seems logical, and most of this didn't. The characters found exactly what they needed, when they needed it, and the sarcastic tone throughout the book and from just about every character started to weigh the story down. Oct 29, Kathryn rated it it was ok Shelves: 2-stars-disliked , adult-supernatural.
I really considered giving this book only one star. There were so many things about it I just didn't like. The biggest were the spelling and grammar mistakes. One mistake I can forgive but when there's a mistake what seems like every few pages it's too much. There was also a lack of continuity. The character would be sitting one moment and the next he's somehow somewhere else without having moved, or in one paragraph he sits down and the following paragraph he takes a seat. I found the main char I really considered giving this book only one star. I found the main character himself boring.
The idea of him being famous was pushed too hard and brought up too often making it feel forced. I also disliked the constant inner-monologue of the main character that slowed the story down quite a bit. The action was also overdone. It was never one or two zombies posing a threat but always dozens and at one point over a hundred. The beginning was fun and interesting with the main character discovering the outbreak and I enjoyed his flashes trying to remember his wife, but otherwise everything felt very contrived and the plot twists very convenient.

Wilson rated it liked it. For example, waive means "to exempt", while wave is a gesture. Two different words; two different meanings. Errors like that interrupted the flow of the story. However, I liked the storyline enough to keep going.
LZR Infection (Book One of the LZR Series) by Bryan James, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
I'm not entirely sure that I'll continue with the series, but it's not completely out of the question. Feb 16, Faye, la Patata rated it really liked it Shelves: zombie. Good read : I like it a lot, and I'm really glad there's going to be another sequel. Jun 11, Liza rated it liked it Shelves: e-book , contemporary , zombies , apocalypse , amazon-freebie , Overall, definitely not the worst zombie apocalypse book I've ever read. The main character being someone well-known and well-off rather than the usual Joe Schmoe that normally accompanies this kind of book was a departure from the normal premise.
However: Michael McKnight is annoying as hell he's one of those guys who doesn't know when to take it down a notch with the sarcasm - and this is coming from someone who speaks said language fluently. I found him irritating quite often, but not quite Overall, definitely not the worst zombie apocalypse book I've ever read.
I found him irritating quite often, but not quite to the point of wanting him to get eaten alive. I also wasn't a fan of the senseless inner voice. Is he schizophrenic? In some random room. I guess the current story arc was fulfilled enough to end the episode, but that was no season finale, and there are too many questions still left unanswered. The second book is on Amazon for free. Well, okay, no. My irritation at how the first book "ends" still stands, but it's definitely offset by the fact that I'm going to go download and read the second book right now and pretend that it isn't broken up into two different sections.
Maybe two in the entire book, and that's not bad considering that just yesterday I read a book printed on actual paper and bound at a printing press with more typos than that. Dec 04, Christina Foster rated it liked it. I struggled between rating this book a 3 and rating it a 4. If given the choice, I'd rate this book a 3. I enjoyed the storyline and the action, and the humor was well placed. Each character is unique, and adds something truly special and necessary to the story.
Mike McKnight's backstory was an interesting one, and I liked how it unfolded over time. This book gave me a different take on the zombies themselves, as they seemed to be able to seek out their prey a little more than the zombies I'm I struggled between rating this book a 3 and rating it a 4.
This book gave me a different take on the zombies themselves, as they seemed to be able to seek out their prey a little more than the zombies I'm used to reading about or seeing on TV. The cause of this Zombie "Apocalypse" is also something I can see as being somewhat possible in the real world, which added to my enjoyment of the story.
I wasn't thrilled with the ending, or with the role that our hero's wife played in all of this, which is why I couldn't bring myself to give a higher rating. However, as I've already started reading the second book in this series, the aspects of the first book that left me disappointed were somewhat made right in the beginning of the second book. If you enjoy this genre, I highly recommend this book.
As a forewarning, there are spelling and grammatical errors that seem to bother some readers quite a bit. But, the story is truly entertaining. Oct 23, David rated it really liked it. This book is talking about 'what will gonna happen, if the human still don't cares they lovely earth. Just keep pollute the environment and making some infect weapons. On this book it basically tell you the trueth of humans making to much infection stuff in world.

I love this book 's speaking tongue, it just like when's the time should be laugh then it has some cool comment to made your laugh, or when is like the time you needed be scare about. Then it has some horror sentcent to build that scarey feeling up. Mar 01, Elizabeth Jane rated it really liked it. Thank you, Mr. With the ease of publishing a "novel" seemingly at anyone's fingertips nowadays, I had recently become disillusioned with reading.
I seriously went through seven so-called "novels", with four star or higher reviews, before I decided to take a chance on this quite ugly-looking from the outset zombie apocalypse novel. That's the thing about publishing today. It's simple to find a talented artist who will make your ho-hum writing at least LOOK amazing.
