From Mike Talbot's journal:
"The End . . . has come and gone. This is the new beginning, the new world order and it sucks. The end for humanity came the moment the U.S. government sent out the infected flu shots. My name is Michael Talbot and this is my journal. I'm writing this because no one's tomorrow is guaranteed, and I have to leave something behind to those who may follow."
So continues Mike's journey. Will he give up all that he is in a desperate bid to save his family and friends? Eliza is coming: can anyone be prepared?

I love Mike's brothers. Gary is one of my favorite characters now. Mike's whole family needs to be MY family. I loved the split scenes and dealing with several groups in this book. Tracy just keeps getting better and I love that we get to see a bit more of her in this one. As always, the twists on zombies takes on other dimensions that I haven't came across in other zombie books I've read. At first, I wasn't so sure how I felt about it, but by the end, the developments in the zombies is actually one of my favorite parts, now and I find myself asking what in the world will Mark come up with next.
I love these books by Mark Tufo and Sean Runnette is the perfect voice! I am so glad I listened to them on audiobook as it just wouldn't be the same, Sean brings such life to all of the characters!!
I am a total Zombie fan. This series has an added twist to it that makes for a fresh story line. Can't wait to listen to the next book. If you are wondering should I get this? Stop it is a great story you will not be disappointed.
Possibly not. I'm starting to lose track of everyone's age which is an important detail for me to remember everyone's relation to each other.Mike acts like he's in his 30s but he really is in his mid/late 40s because his eldest child is in her early 20s. I don't even think they defined her age (Nicole). I swear that Travis' age was 15 in Book 1 but now he's 17 in Book 4. But on the timeline in the books, only 4 months has passed. It's starting to get real confusing.
character development. love bt as a character. Mikes sarcasm is refreshing in such a sad landscape
