What would you do to pay the bills; to survive, or to just get rich, would you compete against other teams in a quarantined town filthy with zombies wanting to bite out your throat?
Emma and Lewis sign up for the race, they need the money to save his life. But they won’t just be racing the dead, the surprise blizzard or the other contestants.

Because anger and vengeance know no bounds and like everyone in the blighted town they become pawns in a game of retribution.

The contestants become nothing more than live entertainment to viewers who watch and judge their every move in the town of Prideful as they race each other to arrive alive to a final flag. The team that makes will get airlifted out alive and go back home richer for it, the others walk back to a pittance and if they are not careful. They won’t get out at all.

***Shelley C – #NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
For the storyline alone, I recommend The Last Flag to all apocalypse lovers! It is quite an amazing adventure the author has taken her characters on. It’s like The Amazing Race meets World War Z and I loved every second of it! The story is a bit on the gory side, not too much, but I wouldn’t recommend it to younger readers. I would have liked a little more background on the characters but I did find myself invested enough to care what happened to them. My only issue with the book is the editing. Normally I do not mention typos or editing issues but there is more than enough in this book to warrant a comment on it. I did receive an early readers copy and these issues may be resolved in the final product. Despite the editing, it is definitely a worthy read!
