Winter has gone, but the world is no less inhospitable. The survivors of this first winter now face some of the darkest and most soul-wrenching choices thus far. From the outskirts of London to an island refuge in Oregon, small groups struggle to build a new life. Kevin recovers to a realization that shatters his dreams, yet he must stand up and take the role of leader - or die trying. His followers, now largely consisting of juvenile delinquents and society cast-offs, need him. Can he shake loose from his own misery to be their salvation? Billy must decide what sort of life he wants to forge. Has he been following blindly and gone down the wrong path? And has Dr. Zahn finally discovered the mystery of the zombie children?

Dear lovers of zombie fiction,If you have not been keeping up with this series or have not been introduced to this series, you're really missing out.I freely admit that the first book in the series did take a little getting used to for me because I wasn't a huge fan of the narration at first. But I had read some of the books in the series before and wanted to remember them again to be able to continue forward with the series - nothing worse that forgetting everything about what you read in the past and not knowing where you are in the series. So by the second book, I was definitely invested and have been ever since. This series is super good. I mean it takes you on a roller coaster of not just emotions but just STORY and STORYTELLING which is fabulous when you're talking about a long span of books. It's never always predictable and while there is some "hero stuff" and hero like characters at times - that's ok because you can understand that the strong people with strong beliefs would be the people that would be leaders of groups, for as long as they're able to manage it.If you're looking over these reviews because you're not sure if you should give it a try, I encourage you to definitely give the first two a try because if you're not hooked by then, maybe they're not for you- but you're rewarded with a lot of entertainment if you stick with the series. I look forward to the next books in the series! I want to know how Billy is going to get out of his current dilemma and I want to know how Kevin and Aleah and their friends deal with their current situation (I can't give out spoilers but you KNOW what I mean if you've listened to the book.) These books make you want to know what happens next!
It's a great story for any zombie lover. Think; Zombieland meets The Walking Dead. Hilarious tale of survivors because of their smart remarks, as they face their worst fears, human nature and really hard choices. Compared to the first three or four books in the series darkness before Dawn is not as gruesome but definitely shocking, exciting, new and inventive, strange, pulse pounding, nerve racking and will definitely keep you guessing what comes next.
I think I have been with Mr Brown since the beginning. I have never been disappointed. I love the evolution of each story and each character. even when I thought all was lost with the death of a major character. Todd pulled me right back in. GET this and all of his work. you can't go wrong
I can not wait for the next book in this series! Character development is amazing. Beware....your heart will not make it out of this series without breaking once or twice. And the twists just keep you guessing.....great books again, thank you
I loved the whole thing!! this is the most awesome zombie series! I do have a bit of trouble adjusting between groups and remembering where they were at, but it doesn't take long before I am immersed in that story line of the book.
Billy, he is really starting to make decisions and trying to be the leader Kevin was, even though he knows he will never fully be able to replace Kevin, at least his heart and mind are going in the right direction.
Juan, oh Juan... whereforart though Juan!! I was in total shock with this whole line, never expected that to happen which made it that much better. Love it when I am shocked and dismayed and not knowing where the story is leading.
Dr Zahn... love her more as time goes on. there for a few in the last book I wasn't sure about her, but with this one I can understand her a bit more and would totally back her
The children zombies and the staircase.... I was laughing knowing exactly what was being described with the game, and my jaw hit the floor when I realized what was really going on...
Yes!!! it was too long to listen all in one sitting, but I wanted to know what was going to happen next... I can't wait to get into the next book and see where everything is leading too! completely awesome!
If you haven't listened to or read this series, DO IT NOW!!! this is totally worth every minute you read or listen!
Love the book sick of Kevin.I just want him to die already. I understand he is the leader but they are incapacitated without him.I guess me being a take charge type of person Im uncomfortable with leaving my fate to others. Even with that the story is great and keeps you wanting more.
I didn't want to like Billy as much as I do, because of why he came into focus in the first place, but he's quickly won my heart and replacing Kevin as my fave character. I always anticipate coming to their portions of the books.
He seemed to reading more smoothly in this one and ordinarily that would be good, but I was so used to his readings before that this one took me some time to get in the groove with it. I think I really prefer the way he read the books before, though.
Can't wait for the next one. I thought I'd be tired of zombies by now, but this series just keeps me coming back for more.
"Another good Dead book"
The book was good but not top form, started to feel a bit like some was just added for filling rather than story.
Please narrator as an English man I have no idea where you get your British accents from please stop they are sooo bad..... Other than that this was another good dead book but i was wondering if the story is running out of ideas. Found it an enjoyable book but lacking any cohesive direction. When top characters were killed before it was wow but how can you keep this up.... wiping out half of a camp of people..... very anti-climatic.
Ended on a cliffhanger of course and will get the next book but hope the story goes on at a bit better pace as this stuttered a bit.
