While I was disappointed by the abrupt and somewhat Deus Ex ending to Ringo’s otherwise entertaining “Black Tide Rising” zombie series, there are a number of scenes in it (as well as a lot of dropped red and purple pill knowledge that can be seen through the placement of lampshading that authors buying into grrrrl power would never insert) that are just epic.

Having lived near Jax, and visited the waterfront downtown where a critical scene takes place, I get a huge shit-eating whenever I think of that initial salvo being timed to “Bodies” by Drowning Pool.
