The dead have been ravaging the planet for months. Both the East and the West coasts of the United States have collapsed and the U.S. military is in full retreat. All their attempts to stem the tide of the dead have failed.

Former Counterterrorism Agent Mark Steele and his fellow survivors have been bushwhacked in the West Virginia hills. The fringe West Virginians are teaching him a valuable lesson in the new rules of the apocalypse. The mountain folk are as resilient as they are ruthless and Steele must find a way out to save his people.

In a desperate gamble to stop the virus, retired Air Force Colonel Michael Kinnick has been entrusted with finding Dr. Joseph Jackowski who’s gone missing in West Virginia. Kinnick’s depleted unit of Special Forces soldiers are to the breaking point as the dead assault them at every step.

Outside of Pittsburgh, Dr. Joseph Jackowski’s quest to find Patient Zero has stalled. Unwillingly conscripted into the National Guard, he has been enlisted into Colonel Jackson’s rapidly depleting force. As the military quarantine disintegrates around Pittsburgh, death marches closer, and time is running out.

Steele is forced to go further than he ever imagined in order to save his loved ones, but when he is done, will anyone still recognize him? Will he recognize them? And will he recognize himself?

In this thrilling sequel to End Time, Daniel Greene continues his fast paced and gripping apocalyptic saga. The Breaking, transports us to a near future composed of death, honor, destruction and hope as the United States falls and lives crumble before a devastating zombie virus.

Best New Zombie Books of 2016RANKING SQUAD
“From the very first scene of Greene’s gruesome, entrancing thriller, readers know that they are in for one hell of a ride. Greene is meticulous in his detail, particularly in the panicked, close-quarters fighting that makes readers bite their nails in gleeful terror. For a complex, character-driven action thriller with enough gore and urban battles to satisfy hardcore zombie-genre fans, End Time is a bloody mess of fun from top to bottom.” SELF-PUBLISHING REVIEW, 4½ Stars
“For fans of The Walking Dead and zombie fiction, this tale of how the plague of the undead began and how mankind fights for survival is great.” LISA’S WRITOPIA
“This book was incredible! 10 stars!” 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
“This novel reminds me of a mix between World War Z and Band of Brothers, as it is hard core and to the point, but very thrilling and easy to read, drawing you in fast and holding on to the very last word.” 5 out 5 stars on Amazon

Protests turn violent in front of the US Embassy Kinshasa. Civil war erupts and people tear each other apart in the streets of the African capital. An overwhelmed US Department of State dispatches a team of elite counterterrorist agents to bring their besieged people back alive. Agent Mark Steele leads the team of gritty operatives, who have been trained for anything. Unbeknownst to them, they are walking into a maelstrom of death so much worse than rebels in the streets.

 Dr. Joseph Jackowski, a CDC virologist, is stuck in the middle. He knows the truth behind the protests, but no one seems to care. The denizens of Kinshasa cannot be bargained with, negotiated with, or talked down because of a tiny virus mutating inside of them at breakneck speed. A virus that is transforming them into highly contagious savages with no recollection of who they once were and no breath inside their chest.

 The doctor may hold the key to fighting the virus, but nothing matters unless agent Steele and his team can get him back to the United States alive.
