    Part two of the series picks up immediately after the end of the first. David's wife, Laura, is forced to take over the protection of their family as the boat travels out into Hailey Bay, away from the zombies. However, the boat's pilot plans to dock back in the overrun city to rescue his own family, which will put Laura, Kim, and Annie in jeopardy. Laura is forced to overcome unimaginable horrors as the zombie apocalypse explodes around her, but it is the evil intent of humans that present her greatest challenge.

    SOMETIMES I LISTEN TO A BOOK AND WANT TO REACH IN AND RESCUE THE UNFORTUNATE SOULS WHO I KNOW ARE GOING TO BE VICTIMS. IN THIS BOOK I GRIPPED THE EDGE OF MY SEAT AND HELD MY BREATH IN HOPES THE VICTIMS ARE RESCUED AND SAVED BUT THIS IS NOT A HEARTFELT ROMANCE OR FAIRYTALE.....THIS IS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE AND EVERYONE ALIVE BECOMES A VICTIM IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.....SOME BY SHARKS, ZOMBIES, OR HUMANS. RELENTLESS AND SCARY AS HELL. BUCKLE-UP LISTENERS BECAUSE THIS RIDE DOES NOT STOP ANYTIME SOON.

    David was caught in the middle of the city when the zombie outbreak started. His wife and daughters were at home, stranded on the roof as zombies waited below. He would have to fight through hordes of undead, merciless other survivors, and a series of death defying stunts to get home. However, even if he makes it there, how can he be sure they're safe?

    OF COURSE I ENJOY A FREE BOOK SO I DOWNLOADED DEADLOCKED 1. I WAS SO THANKFUL I DID. THE FIRST BOOK STARTS OUT FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A MAN TRYING DESPERATELY TO FLEE WORK AND THE CITY, AT THE BEGINNING OF A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK, TO FIND HIS FAMILY. THE HORROR AND SACRIFICE THIS MAN WILL HAVE TO ENDURE IS BRUTAL AND DEVASTATING. IN THE END THE BOOK SWITCHES TO THE WIFE/MOTHERS PERSPECTIVE. I DID NOT THINK I WOULD LIKE THE SWITCH IN PERSPECTIVES BUT IT IS DONE IN THE WHOLE SERIES AND ADDS SO MUCH CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND PLOT TWISTS I LOOKED FORWARD TO THE OTHERS THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES.

    THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ FOR ALL ZOMBIE LOVERS. IF YOU ARE NOT A ZOMBIE LOVER YOU WILL BE BY BOOK 2. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...WELL WORTH ALL THE MONEY INVESTED IN THE SERIES.

    It looked like another ordinary day in Los Angeles. Then night came...Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angels - it comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determination - and the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.

    I LOVE TO SEE SOMEONE TAKE THE ROMANCE OUT OF VAMPIRES. THESE VAMPIRES ARE PSYCHOTIC BLOODTHIRSTY KILLERS WHO WANT TO BRING ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD STARTING WITH LOS ANGELES.

    I LOVE THE STORY OF THE ORIGINAL "KING" VAMPIRE. I THOUGHT THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT WAS WELL WRITTEN AND THE PLOT AND TWISTS PERFECTLY PLACED......YOU MUST LISTEN TO THE WHOLE BOOK FOR THE STORY TO REVEAL ITSELF WHICH MAKES FOR A GREAT THRILLER AND MYSTERY.

    THE END IS FRIGHTENING AND WILL HAVE YOU BITING YOUR NAILS IN FEAR AND ANTICIPATION. WORTH THE CREDIT!

    I am not going to complain to you about my life. We’ve got zombies. They are not the brainless, rotting creatures we’d been led to expect. Unfortunately for us, they’re just as smart as they were before they died, very fast, much stronger than you or me, and possess no internal editor at all. Claws. Did I mention claws? I kill them for a living, but it’s as much a vocation as a freelance career choice. It helps me, helps my neighborhood, and the people I consider to be my family of choice. What’s more?

    I honestly dont know where to begin. Everything about this book is just wrong.
    Narrator is bad.....he tries to do many different accents and horrible sound effects. Character is a wanna be Mike Talbot (from the from the zombie Fallout series). the characters in the book are so poorly written and the dialogue between characters is childish and ridiculous? the story becomes confusing and hard to follow. Save your credit. The book is basically about a man wHo is out to save his friend who is working for a super intelligent some zombie. to be fair I only listen to half the book before I realized this book was not for me.

    While searching for a lost child in a shopping mall, Rhoda and Dan stumble into a sinister underworld that mirrors their worst fears. Forced to complete a series of twisted tasks to find their way out, they finally emerge into the brightly lit food court, sick with relief at the banal sight of people shopping and eating. But something feels different. Why are the shoppers all pumped full of silicone? Why are the shop assistants chained to their counters? Just when they think they've made it back to the mall, they realise their nightmare has only just begun....

    ONE OF THESE BOOKS THAT JUST WASTE MY CREDIT! I THINK THE WORSE THING ABOUT THE BOOK IS NARRATION. I HATE THE STRONG BRITISH ACCENT (IN MY BOOKS). THE STORY IS NOT SCARY OR UNIQUE, REMINDS ME OF SCI-FI "B" MOVIES. UGH! TRY AGAIN NEXT CREDIT.

    Christy Barnett is sleeping when her aging German shepherd Molly growls into the darkness outside her bedroom. She wakes to a dim glow provided by her Kindle's screen, thankful that she had fallen asleep while reading again. The power has gone out, the world outside her window is eerily dark and silent. And Molly is weary of something that waits in the hallway, hiding in the shadows. A dark cloud has fallen over the city of Aberdeen, MD. The population disappears in an instant.

    Night falls. It came like a malignant shadow with seductive promises of power. And somewhere in the night...a small girl smiled as her mother burned...asylum inmates slaughtered their attendants...in slimy tunnels once-human creatures gathered. Madness raged as the lights began to fade and humanity was attacked by an ancient, unstoppable evil.

    FIRST HERBERT BOOK I HAVE LISTENED TO.....WILL NOT BE THE LAST! ALTHOUGH I WOULD CLASSIFY THIS BOOK AS WEIRD, THE BOOK IS RATHER TWISTED AND MACABRE. THE STORY WAS GOOD BUT WHAT WAS AWESOME WAS THE PSYCHOLOGICAL INSIGHT AND PARAPSYCHOLOGY THEORIES THAT PLAYED OUT IN THE STORY. WILL NOT GIVE AWAY TOO MUCH IN THE BOOK BUT IF I HAD TO COMPARE HERBERT'S WORK WITH ANOTHER AUTHOR IT WOULD BE STEPHEN KING. THE CHARACTER DEPTH, DIALOGUE, AND REACTIONS TO SITUATIONS WERE VERY BELIEVABLE AND SPOT ON.

    THIS IS A HORROR BOOK AND NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART OR MODEST INDIVIDUAL. WOULD BE A GREAT BOOK THIS HALLOWEEN SEASON!

    To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable. Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

    28 DAYS + WALKING DEAD + ZOMBIE FALLOUT + DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON = THE REMAINING!

    AFTER SPENDING THE YEAR WADING THROUGH HORRIBLE ZOMBIE/APOCALYPTIC BOOKS I FINALLY FEEL THE WASTED CREDITS REDEEMED BY D.J. MOLLES THE REAMING SERIES. THOUGHT I WAS NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS SERIES AS MOST BOOKS INVOLVE EX MILITARY TRYING TO SURVIVE DURING A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BUT WOW WAS I GLAD I TOOK A CHANCE. I HAVE FINISHED ALL FOUR BOOKS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN.

    LEE (MAIN CHARACTER) IS MY HERO. I WOULD LIKE THIS BOOK TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE OR TELEVISION SERIES.

    ZOMBIES IN THE STORY ARE HORRIFYING. SCENARIOS INVOLVING HUMANS ARE HORRIFYING. THIS IS A HORROR BOOK!

    NARRATOR WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!

    The Camp Ryder Hub is broken. Lee is nowhere to be found, and his allies are scattered across the state, each of them learning that their missions will not be as easy as they thought. Inside the walls of Camp Ryder, a silent war is brewing, between those few that still support Lee's vision of rebuilding, and the majority that support Jerry's desire for isolation. But this war will not remain silent for long.
