The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. This book follows the journey of Michael Talbot; his wife Tracy; and their three kids, Nicole, Justin, and Travis. Accompanying them are Brendon, Nicole's fiancé and former Wal-Mart door greeter, and Tommy, who may be more than he seems. Together they struggle against a ruthless, relentless enemy that has singled them out above all others.
The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? For, on the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the war-torn countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of: With law and order a long-distant memory, some humans have decided to take any and all matters into their own hands. Can the Talbots come through unscathed, or will they suffer the fate of so many countless millions before them?
It's not just brains versus brain-eaters anymore. And the stakes may be higher than merely life and death, with eternal souls on the line.

"Mark Tufo has written the first zombie series that kept me up reading all night." (John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family)
Good day all! Always been an avid reader. Decided to pick up the art of listening to books and oh how I am hooked! Love Audible books!
This book held me from beginning to end. I love the strategically placed humor that Mark Tufo gives us through Michael Talbot and I love his family. All the characters have an amazing way of sneaking into our lives and setting up a nice place to call home. Also Sean does an amazing job narrating.
The least helpful reviewer on audible.
This second Zombie Fallout book had less of everything I enjoyed about the first book and more of everything that annoyed me.
I've said it before, I get what Mark Tufo is trying to do. He's trying to create a character in Michael Talbot that has a witty, sarcastic sense of humor, but for me it was just too much. If he dialed it back a little then maybe I could get on board. I understand that hundreds of people love this, but I found very little of it to be amusing. I was rolling my eyes a lot.
I now have a strong suspicion that part of the reason it didn't work for me was the reader. Yet, there are hundreds of people who love him too. So, maybe it's me.
There were at least four times that I almost stopped listening to this book. The first time came in the prologues where it tells the story of a vampire who becomes a Zombie. There's only so much disbelief I can suspend. I have a line I don't want my stories to cross.
I'm sorry to say that I'm probably through with this series. It's sad because there was some things I enjoyed about it. If I do continue listening to this series it will be after I've forgotten how disappointed I was with this second book.
Great book. Love the way the story flows and the degree of unpredictability (and doom) that Tufo instills. Also some great self derisive gallows humor from the lead character, brilliantly delivered by Sean Runnette.
One thing I did not like though - Minor SPOILER: There is no ending to the book. Nothing is resolved. Absolutely nothing! It isn't even a real cliffhanger. If Tufo does the same thing with the next book (yes I will read it), I may well quit the series. Great book with an annoying ending.
As usual, Tufo continues to write yet another good book. Having listened to lycan fallout 1 & 2 before starting this series, it's exciting to finally see the progression of Mike and BT's friendship. Oh and Tommy too! Basically what I'm saying is, if you've read the first ZF and are reading these reviews for ZF 2, you need to quit wasting time and start listening.
This book, while not as light hearted as the first, is still a fun read. If you enjoyed the first book you will enjoy this one. Even though the protagonist is losing more and more if his humanity as he has to make difficult decisions and has to face the typical losses from a zombie apocalypse he's still able to hang on to most of the wit and humor that made me fall in love with this character.
loved doing the whole collection start to finish I hope this series never end it will be kind of hard to find books like this and the narrator is the best.
Excellent read/listen. Love the development of each character. And that no one is safe! Looking forward to the next book
