Publisher's Summary

Stranded in the middle of the Mojave Desert, surrounded by zombies, Vivian and Axl are sure they're facing the end. They meet a billionaire who's promised them safety and security, but it's almost too good to be true. Vivian hopes she'll finally be able to deal with the loss of Emily, her growing feelings for Axl, and the terrifying new world they're facing. But their sense of security is soon shattered when they discover the shelter isn't the utopia they thought it would be.

It seems the company that built the shelter decided to solve their financial problems by selling off provisions, which means the group has to find a way to get supplies. Or face starvation. And Vegas is the closest city.... With her feelings for Axl stronger than ever, Vivian volunteers to accompany him and a few others on a trip into one of the biggest tourist cities in the world.

Vegas is overrun with zombies, but there are other survivors as well. As the emotional baggage piles up, Vivian and Axl's bond grows, but it doesn't take long to realize that zombies aren't the only thing they have to fear.

    "Extremely predictable"

    I'm not sure what to say. Everything was predictable. I'm not sure I understand the logic of heading into the middle of Las Vegas when there are plenty of communities on the outskirts to get supplies from. It seemed like it was added it to create more suspense, but all it did was create frustration. I don't even think I will get the third book.

    "Meh"

    This series really went down hill in this book. Always people tripping over things trying to crawl backwards on and on. Losing their weapons or wepons out of reach or just plain forgetting to have their wepons on them. The love story is unbelievable.

    "Interesting story"

    So they make it to the safe shelter with clean toilets and electricity, where we can get to know the characters and they can romance without pesky zombies in the way. Sometimes it's like reading my older sisters trashy romance books when I was little. Except now I fast forward through the sex scenes, can't be bothered with them now.

    The strong side of this book are the characters and interpersonal relationships; brings a lot of depth to the book. The story also feels very different from other books, it keeps me engaged. Vivian is a tough girl, but she plays the secondary role, letting the brothers take point in the fight and relying on (or manipulating) their strength to lead the group. Hadley is a really like able character, this has me on edge because I worry she might die at any time.

    Angus seems to be a simple character, but he is probably very complicated because his personality is sometimes in contradiction to his actions. Like how is Mitchell still alive after what he pulled in the last book? The Angus I've been told about wouldn't allow that. So he seems tough, but doesn't follow through. He also continues to make remarks to Vivian even after his brother and her are a known item. That's his brothers girl he is talking to. In front of his brother. This just doesn't happen. I think the author really needs to think carefully how to fit Angus in better. I'm just waiting for a big schism to happen.

    Some plot stuff left me with my sexist thoughts about the author, like how they grabbed their packs and got stranded without food or ammo, left me wondering what they carry in their packs. Tissue paper? And the unintentionally funny, we can't drive this car, the windshield is dirty! (Axl wouldn't care about driving a car covered in zombie gore to save their lives.)

    Narrator, goes without saying, excellent. Especially with so many characters.

    I am critical of some aspects in this series, but I still give it 4 stars because it is still that good. The excursion the hospital was very exciting and the ending, oh my! Luckily I saw the next book is out!
