The journey across the zombie-filled country does not get easier for the renegades. The Great Plains, the heartland of America, is now home to vast herds of the undead. These savage hordes sometimes stretch as far as the eye can see. Among them live the Azael - men who have regressed back to the bloody and chaotic roots of our collective ancestors where only the strong or the blood-thirsty survive.
These far-flung tribes control the interior of the country, using great armies of zombies to inflict their will upon their neighbors. For the moment they are at peace with the soldiers of Colorado and for the moment they only see in Neil and the Renegades a way to make easy money escorting them across their lands at a steep price.
The specter of death lurks among the group. It haunts them and strikes again and again until its appetite is whetted to a point where it can no longer hide behind the innocent face of Jillybean. What skulks in the depths of her mind is driven by ferocious desires, chief of which is the hunger for death. It's a hunger that will never be satiated until each and every one of them is dead.

Like all 5 previous books in the series this one does not disappoint! Holds your ear and butt on the edge of your seat in maddening anticipation of the next installment. Full from start to finish of chacters you can't help but fall in love with and feel deeply the pain, loss and miniscule moments of safety they hold fast to along their journey! A must read for anyone who loves a zombie thriller!
I loved all the other stories. I miss Ipes, but that's story progression. However, there was way too much time spent on Jillybean. I wanted more time with the other characters.
I get the zombies, but having a 7 year old girl kill a new born baby then plotting on a baby in the womb of its mother is just to much, plus all the comments about murdering a baby is a little morbid, had me until that I will not be continuing this series. A baby murdered by a 7year come on not even a cool read or idea, just wrong, I guess being a parent hit home. Jilly bean could have been a better character in the future. Good luck with series it was good to book 6.
I wanted to see these books thru and I feel I'm wasting my time. bought the whole series because 1 and 2 were good. Peter has run out of ideas and possibly money too. which is why I believe he pushed these last 4 books out in a two year span.
this book plain sucked.
All I can say is WOW! Another no-holds-barred gritty story. I think the author paints a true picture of human nature at its worst when the rule of law has collapsed. I'm going to start listening to the next (last in the series) book in this series right now!
I had to remove 1 star for story from my usual 5 stars across the board for this series.
Granted, I'm never a big fan of sudden love between 2 characters in any novel like this, but whatever is happening between Gray and Deanna is cringe-worthy. It seems extremely forced (and probably is on Deanna's part), and they either need to cut the crap or just satisfy their sexual tensions and get "it" over with already. I was very tempted to skip past the parts where Gray would "give Deanna a reluctant smile and didn't know why" (paraphrasing), or when Deanna would seemingly do anything to gain Gray's approval. Just no.
Otherwise though, great stuff!
"Another five star"
Another fantastic book by Peter Meredith.
this is book 6 and still every bit as gripping as the first.
"enjoyable as always left on a cliffhanger again"
can't wait for the next installment whenever that may be a awesome expansion on a awesome story and characters
love it.. amazing just like the rest of the series!!! can't wait to start on the next one.
