Nothing is simple anymore in the new undead world. Crossing a road, making tea, meeting new people, all can turn deadly in a twitch of an eye. For the Renegades, who are unarmed and hounded over half the state by ruthless bounty hunters, there's only one thing that they can say is simple: dying.
Surrounded by enemies and without help from the imprisoned Captain Grey, they flee from one trap into another with little but the wits of Jillybean and Neil's steadfast leadership to keep them alive. But is it enough?
Not by a long shot.
They have to dig deep and take wild chances to stay out of the clutches of the River King and they find out the hard way that there are consequences to rolling the dice against the devil.

Somehow, Peter has outdone himself once again. I just finished listening and I am SOOOO bummed out that it's over and I'm once again left wanting the next one to be playing right now! Great story, character development, and above all else, it keeps you on your toes with the feeling that no one is truly safe! The narrator did a great job with this one as well. Hopefully the next one comes out much sooner than this one did!
I've followed this series the whole way an am transfixed. This installment into the series does not disappoint. I have to say the action and fighting is very welcoming. There is never a dull moment with the Renegades. I'm eagerly awaiting the next!
The narrator is also amazing.
I love zombie books. always looking for the next good one.
not a blood and guts book but it was very hard to take a break once I started listening to it. totally different people come together to fight and survive. really good listen.
This series of books keeps getting better. Just when you think the last boom was the best, you read the next instalment. loved it. Buy it
If/when this series ends, I will undoubtedly revisit all of the novels again eventually.
To me it has to be the final encounter between Ernest and Jilly Bean, and Jilly's ensuing transformation (the emergence of Eve) after the "death" of Ipes. What is really going on with Jilly Bean? It is PTSD, schizophrenia, telepathy, something of a paranormal nature, or some combination of the above? I feel like Jilly has gradually been becoming the primary focus of these novels (rather than Neil) but it may be this particular moment that seals the deal and leaves no doubt. This series is now the Jilly Bean story, and unlike some others, I absolutely love it! So glad that I will be able to listen to Book 6 immediately after finishing 5 after waiting forever between books 4 and 5.
Mr. Sands does a superb job at giving each and every character their own unique voice, even among some of the less important characters.
I'm never the type to want to listen to any book all in one sitting, as I like to try and draw it out a bit so that it lasts longer. :)
Unlike many other series (books, shows, movies, and everything else), I feel like this series is getting better with each installment. Now onto book 6, and hopefully I won't have to wait very long for book 7 after that!
"Hurry with the next one :)"
Love these books and the narrator is excellent. Jillybean breaks my heart but I live in hope that she will find peace and a happy ending!
These series are just amazing. perfectly written and a gripping story line. I feel like I actually know these people they have become my life, JellyBean is the best and she breaks my heart, I can't recommend these books enough!! these books are not like your typical apocalypse books they are so much more! I'm going to be lost without them waiting for the next one!!
"Another great book, "go jellybean""
Another great book, "go jellybean", The characters just get better and better. great fun with a few twists
