I tend to prefer the audio version of any book due to the convenience and being able to enjoy them on the move!
Among the Dead is a great addition to the "Among" series and leaves you wanting more. I would suggest reading Among the Living first to better understand the characters.
The shocker for me was when Kate was captured and what was done to her, considering her background you knew it was going to be the point in which "the other" took over and dominated her character.
Tim Long in my opinion, is one of the top authors in the genre today. He spends time developing characters and develops back stories that connect you to them. It is a great follow up to Among the Living, all the main characters return and you get right back into the mix of things. He added some very interesting new characters that I enjoyed as well. Tim develops a story and doesn't just go for the rambling zombie. In Among the Dead he clearly defines why some zombies are quicker than others and I thought that was a great idea. There are some that hate and some that love the running zombie, Tim has found a great way to integrate both into his stories. I am absolutely hooked and I can't wait to revisit Lester, Grinder, Kate, and Mike in "Among the Ashes"
By the way would someone please turn this into an HBO series! Talk about a prefect concept for an HBO series, with the back stories this would be a no brainer!
