“The dead walk among us. Zombies, ghouls- no matter what their label. These somnambulists are the greatest threat to humanity. Other than humanity itself. To call the predators and us pray would be inaccurate. They are a plague, and the human race their host. The lucky victims are devoured, their bones scrapped clean, their flesh consumed. Those not so fortunate join the ranks of their attackers, transformed into putrid, carnivorous monsters. Conventional warfare is useless against the creature, as is conventional thought. The science of like ending development and perfected since the beginning of our existence, cannot protect us from an enemy that has no “life” to end”

I chose this extract because it widens our knowledge of Zombie Fiction Novels. Having talked about writing zombie Apocalypse I found this as a great Extract. What can you say about the form of writing, the tone, metaphors, writers purpose and the vocabulary used here?
