The zombies have risen, the world has spiraled into chaos. Small pockets of survivors continue to struggle each day to survive. The best and worst of humanity fight the undead and themselves as they come to grips with a new, violent reality.
See the world through Steve's eyes as he tries to balance the duties of leading a band of survivors while caring for a young, Hispanic orphan girl.

I didn't read the print version, but since I love audiobooks so much, I'm going to say YES!
The other books in the series, of course.
No laughing in this book. And no, it didn't make me cry, but there were cringe worthy moments.
I don't get much time to read however I am able to listen to audio books at work. Considering the high quality of the audio and the smooth cadence and character voices of the narrarator, I can only imagine that it is.
One thing about the Dead series is it's abundance of characters. With so many to follow, there were memorable moments from each group. One particular moment that made me laugh inapropiatly involved Keven underestimating the power of a bomb he built and catching his hair on fire. (Not a funny moment, but I couldn't help it)
Andrew does such a great job at giving each and every character their own unique voice, which with the amount of characters in this series, is no small task. As far as liking the voices of the characters, I like the way he voices the Dr.s (Reginal, Zohn & Peter) I also like Tallia, Jaun & Shaw.
Indeed. I started listening to this book during the second half of my work day. I continued to listen on my 1 hour commute home and then into the evening until I was forced to pause until the next morning.
While this is a series that is classified as horror and deals with the subject of zombies, it is largely about survival, human nature and how things change when it all goes down. Although this series deals with some disturbing subject matter at times, it is not vulgar or meant to tantalize. I respect that T.W. Brown did not exclude such subject matter as so many other writers in this genre have. I have no doubt that if there were a "zombie apocalypse", things would be much worse than what he has included.
the books continue to get better. first it began..now more of a reveal. eh? see what I did there? with out spoiling anything. things are going to amp up. things are going to get better. and perhaps for some. worse? this is where Todd hooks you if you haven't been hooked already.
stellar todd. stellar.
T.W. Brown created a terrifying post apocalyptic world and doesn't shy away from exposing the worst of humanity to the readers.
I highly recommend this book to every fan of the Post Apocalyptic Zombie genre
I love how this author pays homage to all of the zombie writers who have come before him. I've already downloaded the next few in the series. I highly recommend this series to all zombie fiends!
yes after i listed to this i had to immediately get book 3
zombie races hope it was this book and not 1 but that scene makes me chuckle every time i think about it
top notch like every other book he dose
yes i power listened to it in less then a day before work at work after work and got book 3 4 5 6 7 8 right away
Great follow up to the 1st book in this series. The main characters are fleshed out in more detail and you really start to care about the fate of each one.
Theresa begins to show her true colours and the reader learns to admire this young adults saavy and courage.
Unfortunately my digital copy has some flaws and glitches that Audible is looking into which is why I gave the overall rating of only three. The glitch makes it difficult to concentrate on the story because it's so distracting. Never experienced this sort of thing from any Audible book before so I'm hopeful it can be resolved.
I'm not sure if the narrator just grew on me or he just has grown as a narrator and that I felt it was a much more solid experience, but I really enjoyed this story as read to me by Andrew McFerrin much more than in the first book.
The vignettes were interesting - plugged into the story to make the world seem more fleshed out though in part I wish some of those had tied in to some of the people our heroes had bumped into after their demise. I really enjoy the Geek story lines. I'm not a huge fan of Heather (even though she's 16), she can be grating during the narration or of the torturing maniac, Garth or Gareth. But it's all in line with the story and following several different angles along the way. I particularly enjoy the reunion of the Geeks and Steve's story (and when he finds out a secret plot point in the book). Lee is a jerk, but there are good guys and bad guys- the same as any real situation.
I'll continue on with the series. All I can say is, if you weren't too sure about book 1's narration...hang in there and listen to book 2 and I think it'll help solve whatever it was about book 1 that I personally had a few narration reserves about. A fun - but TWISTED series.
"Very enjoyable listen"
Don't know only do audible as i work :)
Hard to compare as DEAD is much darker than most Zombie books but it is as enjoyable in different ways to Zombie Fallout series
Yes as with all DEAD books
I would like personally more high points as after all what is the point of survival if the world becomes so dark but at least there is good left in some people. Really great to follow the survival groups and in this book you get to stay with them a bit longer so can be more emotionally joined with them. There is a couple of really dark characters i would be so happy to read of their demise but as you read DEAD the author will be real and will show you the world is not fair. No-one is safe in this brilliantly written world.
