The first winter has come, and with it, new problems. No longer are the zombies the biggest threat to survival. With the global infrastructure gone, people are forced to do whatever it takes to survive...even the unthinkable. Steve faces his toughest decision yet as he tries to lead his people through one nightmare after another. Kevin risks everything to save one girl and finds himself in the middle of a military fight for power.
Juan fights his way home, but soon finds himself leaving the island...at the worst time possible. Two women set out for London...but one has a secret that she is keeping under wraps. One man seeks to be a god as a new exodus occurs in Egypt. A soldier abandons his post, but can he escape his duty? The darkest days have come now that winter has most of the world in its clutches.

There were a few lines that I laughed out loud listening to - which is a testament to the narrator enjoying the written content.
"the zombie version of the stink eye"
"what- the hell- is *kuru*?"
"..was like roaches when the lights come on..."
I enjoyed the book just as much as the rest in the series. You pretty much know by this point in the series if you're going to like the story lines and I do. I still like Steve and Kevin's story lines best.
I smiled at the mention of Mark Tufo, another great zombie series to check out, books on the shelf of a zombie fanatics' book shelf. It was fun to see the shout out.
At this point I'll keep listening as long as there are books in the series to listen to. I've grown to really appreciate the narrator for this series.
Highly enjoyable, good zombie adventure fun -- and occasionally a curve ball where people that we "know" die- which not every author does too often.
Definitely worth checking out the series! It starts with Dead: The Ugly Beginning.
I want more :)
I always love Steve & Kevin's story. I think these books could be about them alone and they'd be just as great.
Yes, I've listened to the previous books in the series. He does an outstanding job!
No, I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. If you've been with the series up until now, you know the style of writing and the story. So anytime there's a major loss in characters, it's unexpected, yet at the same time, it's no surprise.
Can't wait to get started on the next book in the series!
Jane Yellowrock = Greatness
Yes I like it
I think his female voices and accents are horrid
Yes it ends in a cliff hanger
This series has disappointed me from the beginning. The plot is always weak until the end. Then there is a beautiful cliffhanger that convinces me there is hope. Unfortunately, I loathed myself every time I caved in and bought the next book to have the same slow, jumpy writing. This last book was by far the worst. New characters, very disjointed and confusing. I had forgotten what series I was listening to until several chapters in.
In the end, the characters seemed to be from another book. Brown placed so many new people in this book that he didn't know how to end it. The other books had great endings, this one was wrapped up and thrown together like a salad. Brown seemed to get tired of writing and decided to loosely entwine the characters and end the series.
The characters in the end make decisions (sorta a spoiler - like leave family/kids behind and move away) that are in contrast to who they were throughout the series.
There are new characters that should have been killed off but Brown instead kills off potentially interesting characters, has some moments of "oh yeah" and "wow, that was brilliant" but don't expect much.
There were a few good scenes in each book but they are not worth stumbling through the rest of the book to get to.
Too many to list
"Great series still enjoying but......"
The writer being able to allow strong characters to pass
Personally i am a Willa fan but.......
For the first time no, i am in character burn out and i just turn off on one group 100% so i tried to break it into days but this did not work. If you want to get through these books and they are great don't do it one after other as you will get burnt out on getting into new groups and new characters. Give a week between each one but they are great.
I think this series is great, really enjoyable and do like that the writer deals with the dark side of apocalypse on many fronts. I enjoy moving around the groups and in a way like the fact strong characters are allowed to pass but with lesser characters i think i am becoming a touch tired in trying to emotionally get involved in new ones all the time, think time to just run they story but keep the main characters alive. I missed 1 character whom was killed and sorry a young girl went. Overall the book was great but i need a little break as if you listen book after book with the sped of character changes you can't keep investing in them. When i finished the book i realise i knew all groups and what they were doing but oh yes there is a group in the UK near the M4 but i have no idea what their names are or what happened them in the book...... I will have a few weeks off before next book as things change in these books fast and you can become not attached to new people... There is a twist coming with the child zombies and looking forward where that is going.....
