    Seattle is under siege by masses of living dead, and the military struggles to prevent the virus from spreading outside the city. Kate is tired of sitting around. When she learns that a rescue mission is heading back into the chaos, she jumps at the chance to tag along and put her unique skill set and, more importantly, swords to use.Lester finds a new way to deal with the situation: ignore reality with drugs. When he manages to find himself threatened, he joins with an unlikely ally to take the fight to the dead.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Among the Dead to be better than the print version?

    I tend to prefer the audio version of any book due to the convenience and being able to enjoy them on the move!


    What other book might you compare Among the Dead to and why?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
