The war with the Azael has left the people of Estes Valley weakened and isolated in their mountain retreat. Supplies of fuel and ammo are dangerously low and yet Neil bets most of what he has left on a gamble to find Jillybean, who was last seen in the forests of Missouri.
Neil is the only one who sees in the little girl a chance at a new beginning. He hopes to harness her genius for the benefit of the valley, but when the gamble fails he must send the only two people he can trust out into a dangerous world to gather more supplies.
Sadie and Captain Grey set off with a squad of soldiers...and are not heard from again.
For Jillybean, months alone without the endless danger, the mind-shaking explosions, and the screams that haunt her day and night have left the wounds on her psyche, tenuously scarred over. She can function and her mind is as razor sharp as it has ever been, but now she is cold and grim.
She's also as desperate for love as always, and on her own, she finds her way back to the valley, only to discover that the rumors of her murderous past have grown and the people of the valley have been turned against her.
With nothing to lose and her family in desperate trouble, some missing, some on the edge of banishment, she agrees to go on one more adventure. It's an all or nothing gamble with her life, and the lives of anyone foolish enough to get in her way, on the line.

The characters are all my friends by now! Can't wait for the next books to come out on Audible! This is one series that is really enhanced by all the different voice effects! Excellent talent. Engaging story! Never thought I'd love a zombie series !
I couldn't stop listening! I love all the characters but especially Jilly Bean. Can't get enough. The narrator is awesome and the different voices are amazing.
Peter Meredith has done it again! More action, more Jillybean!!! One of the best zombie series you'll read. There are a LOT of subpar zombie stories out there now, but this series is the gold standard. Non stop action combined with great storytelling and excellent character development. The narration is also spot on. If you've been following the series you already know, if not, start with book one immediately, you won't be sorry, and you won't be able to stop!
This can't be the end of the saga. Jillybean is one of the most unique characters in all the zombie novels I've read. Just so you know I have a Chihuahua who has seizures once and a while. she's a little off. I named her Jillybean after the the Jillybean in this book.
I love zombie books. always looking for the next good one.
this is an awesome series lots of twists and turns lots of zombies the first few books with a lot of post apocalyptic life in all the books
Not only do I hang on the every word, I also find myself overly attached to the characters. I can almost smell the things and places he writes about. I definitely have a face pictured for all of the characters, not just the main ones. I hope this isn't the end!!
Loved every story. Need 20 words? OK why is Niel such a wimp after so long?
Will Sadie ever find happiness?
"A fantastic series of books"
Loved these stories from start to finish, will probably listen to them again one day. Would make a great television series. Basil Sands did a fabulous job too.
