Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

The first book was annoying for all the stupid errors the "hero" made. And I still maintain that he broke protocol and left the bunker nearly 2 weeks before he was supposed to. And why, for sanity's sake were those 48 guys not emailing each other about this situation? Were they all just supposed to meet up with each other without communication and without plan? That's no way to run the salvation of civilization.
But this series is very captivating. In this book, some mysteries will be solved, some bad guys taken down, and some good guys sacrificed. We cannot know our reactions to such situations until we are in them. We should all hope to perform so well. There's lots of action, and human drama, so it works out to be a very human story. I am so glad that the word Zombie has never been mentioned. I steer clear of those!
I wish the editors would correct grammar and word choice, but editors don't seem to do that anymore. Sigh.
Christian Rummel is a great narrator. He makes a few mistakes here, and you can't always tell who's a female, but in all he does a fine job, and adds a lot to the story.
OK, I have listen to the first book and I've tried to listen to the second book. There is very little "infected action" in either book as compared to all the trials and tribulations of finally getting there. The story is very tedious and slow moving and I feel like this must be what it is like to read a guns and ammo magazine. Lots of manly macho stuff and yelling. Lee, the so called bonding element of the story, doesn't really seem to have a personality that you can attach yourself to. The only character in the whole series that I even felt compelled to have feelings toward was Tango, his dog, and you know what happens to the character you end up liking…
I did enjoy this story enough to buy the next book in the series. The author is somewhat prolific and maybe far more than is commonly understood. The way a word is used throughout. The way a phrase is coined again. The narrator is also prolific and again likely far more than is known. Barring these mild clichés, it is a very worthy instalment and worth a listen for he long haul driver. The teaser chapter from the next book in the series is good bait for doomer fiction aficionados and veritably guarantees the next purchase IMHO.
the narrator is excellent. This book was a excellent second in the series I've just gotten the third looks like it's going to be a good one I recommend this series
Armed with a little tolerance as to some of the decisions made by some of the characters, this is a most satisfying and tight action story. Gory, for sure. Again I like that "The Infected" is not the usual mindless brain eaters. Story is not entirely predictable, which I like.
A satisfying ending for what is an obvious series is a pleasant surprise. On to the next.
I started last week with the first book and I just finished this one. Great story only thing that gets me is when something good happens something bad will happen not even five minutes later. But overall awesome story cannot wait to get into the third book.
this is becoming a fave series of mine. his characters are easy to relate to and their struggles are palpable. definitely a good listen on a dreary afternoon. consider me a fan, D.J.
Aftermath starts immediately where the first book was (rather annoyingly) ended on a serious cliffhanger. You're already invested into the characters you know, and there's so much that needed resolution. Oh my, does this book deliver! The mission is simple (and plot) are simple enough in concept, but as we've seen so far, even the best laid plans can go wrong.
The most enjoyable aspect of listening to this book was being thrust through all of these chaotic situations and getting to see how the survivors got through it.
My favorite non-specific thing about this story would have to be the ending. Unlike the first book, you're given a lot of plot resolution. While I may not have liked all that transpires though this novel (and holy crap is this is roller coaster ride), I've felt more than satisfied with what I was given.
Sgt. LaRouche. He reminds me a lot of Sgt. Abraham Ford from The Walking Dead (TV) series. They both might be a bit type cast into the "Sarge" cliche, but they both have their convictions that contribute significantly to their respective series. Hardin and our esteemed "Captain" tie for second.
Absolutely. The first book was fantastic. This book was a roller coaster. It has the tension of the first book, but features much more action and plot development. You really start to feel for these characters.
If you were like me, you were more than a little miffed that the first book was as short as it was, and how it ended. With the events that transpire in Aftermath, I can honestly say that this story is worth the price of paying for two books/audiobooks. This isn't just some run of the mill zombie apocalypse story!
This book wraps you up and drops into it. Excellent sequel to the first. The story is great the narration by Christian Rummel is superb! Highly recommended.
Much more than just a tale about zombies.
Enjoyed the story very much. very exciting and fast paced. Well finish the series since it is no doubt as good as the first two novels.
Very clever story, great plot, plausible characters. Recommend the series and I look forward to the final instalment in 2015.
