7 billion zombies. 1 man.

When the zombie apocalypse hits America, not a soul is left alive.
Except Amo. He's a comic book artist. He's a video game world builder. He's just a regular guy living in New York city, with only his wits, creativity and basic decency to guide him.
He's alone against 7 billion zombies.
Will he survive?

'Robinson Crusoe' meets the zombie apocalypse like you've never seen it before, packed with adventure, gore and a mind-blowing twist.

The Last (Zombie Ocean, #1)Thanks to Michael John Grist, Amo is not your typical zombie apocalypse survivor, but he soon may become your favorite! THE LAST is the story of Amo, a comic book artist, a gamer and a man who died several times while in a coma and has been told he must avoid all stimulation, but not what kind of illness he has. Amo becomes like a zombie himself, afraid to allow anything in his life that may cause him to become excited, aroused or stressed. That will all change when he meets a woman he is willing to risk everything for one night with her. Little did he know, that would be all they had.

It was the morning after being with her that he discovers zombies, everywhere, with nary a “normal” survivor anywhere. We will live with Amo, follow his journey, learn what he learns, stand by him a she outwits the zombies and miraculously survives their attacks. But why? How does this average Joe stand against billions of zombies without falling prey to their hungry? Why hasn’t he become their next meal? Is it possible he is NOT the only survivor?

The truth is out there, somewhere and Amo is determined to find it as he travels across a country that is no more, alone with only his thoughts and hopes to guide him. What Amo discovers is a simply brilliant twist designed by Michael John Grist that has changed the face of the zombie world!

I felt like a fly on the wall as I listened to Amo’s thoughts, the wheels turning and each piece of his zombie world falling into place like 1000 piece puzzle! Not always a fast-paced read, but certainly intriguing and entertaining! Michael John Grist has done the near impossible and created “fresh” zombie reading!
