There was no warning. No way to prepare. One might think that the end of the world would come slowly, or loudly, or perhaps so quickly that the end would be a vast, dark nothing. One might think there would be news traveling of impending doom. Some hint of how the human race would die. One would think.
Zoe's been on her own since she was a teenager, when tragedy took her family. Living in a remote small town, she withdrew from society. Her longtime friend, Adam Boggs, left her even more broken when he left for college and cut off communication. When he's back in town for a visit, they attempt to reconcile. The next morning brings an end to life as they knew it.
Fleeing for safety, they soon cross paths with other survivors. It doesn't take long until they realize that the dead are not the only things to fear. While the world is taken over by the dead, Zoe and Boggs are brought together in a heated romance that neither expect. Things get even more complicated when Zoe finds herself cursed with a mental link to the dead. Their lives become all about surviving, coping, and loving each other.

Love me some creepy, scarey, suspenseful, thrilling reading - when discovered I could hear some of my favorites read TO me...Audible had me!
Could have been an interesting "zombie" story, if not for the human characters.
Unique spin on the undead, but that was overshadowed by the patronizing men and whiny helpless females.
The only character I found to be extremely annoying was Zoe she seemed more like a 14-year-old than someone in her 20s I felt that she was immature,whiny and self-centered. The crying and whining all the time was extremely annoying especially in a zombie apocalypse story where
people need to be strong and tough. She for me ruined what I think could've been a good story. Not sure yet if I want to read the other four books although I would like to know what happens to the other characters.
The story was okay, I may even get the sequel, but the way the reader read it really disempowered the female characters and made them seem helpless, even when they did heroic things. And the goys are decent, but over masculinized a bit.
There was also a little too much detail in the sex scenes for me. I like my zombies and erotica in completely different stories.
