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)
What a great twist to the Zombie phenomena that is going on in SO many books. And what great sense of dry humor. Narrator is good. The only one that would've been better was Ray Porter.
above average. the story is good and I love the way the author mixes humor in with the zombie theme
couldn't, 5 starts
Simply superb, brilliantly written, amazingly well crafted, incredibly well told, and funny as all hell. Five out of five. They just don't get any better than this series of amazing stories. Two down, seven more to go. Yyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaa.
This is one of my all time favorite audio books. I really liked the first ZF book, but getting to know the characters better makes it even more enjoyable.
As a walking dead fan, and have read all of the walking dead trilogy including Walking Dead Descent, this series of books is a great filler while waiting on the next book in TWD series. This narrator is just as good as Fred Berman or even better. He has a canny way of inputting humor with seriousness in surviving in an apocalypse. If your a fan of TWD, this book series won't sell you short!!!!!!
I really enjoyed the reader. He portrays the character very well. I love the first book, however this one did not feel like a complete book. It just felt like the story got cut off in the middle. I honestly feel as if it was done this way to sell more books. Still, overall I'm really enjoying the story and will continue to go through the books in the series. Just a pet peeve of mine when authors or publishers break up what could've been one or two books just to make more profit
