Jace Stanford has lost family, friends, and his arm to the zombie apocalypse that hit his formerly quiet, American subdivision of Whispering Pines. But he has also gained new allies, a new sense of purpose, and something he never in a million years would have thought would be a plus: the cannibal savant known as Elsbeth. Now facing certain destruction from a faction known as the Consortium, Jace needs Elsbeth's help more than ever. But is she up to the task when her past is revealed? A past that is possibly more shocking than the zombie apocalypse itself? Jace may find out the hard way. And in the zombie apocalypse, the hard way usually means a whole lot of people are going to die.

I listened to all three in the series. The last two in two days, I could not get enough of it! I loved it! Everything I said about the first two in my reviews here:
Still stands, except in this last instalment it gets even better!
I like zombie books simply because at times I enjoy the break from reality. I like the pure escapism offered by them. But so many in the genre seem to take themselves too seriously and create tension to the point that emotionally I have had enough. Life sucks at times enough that I don’t need to make up more ‘suckieness’… I know it isn’t a proper word, but who cares! This series is different. Every time there is tension, it is lightened by the sarcastic humour of Jace or another character! It is like watching a adult version of Itchy and Scratchy cartoon!
The only shortcoming for me was the end. Don’t worry I won’t give it away. The end does a adequate job of bring the series to a conclusion. But it doesn’t have too. It could continue. I hope it does, and if it does I would pre-purchase it!
The series started off in my top 10 went to top 5 and now is my favourite!
Either I'm getting used to Andrew Wehrlen's delivery or he's getting better, either way this is a hugely entertaining story and I can't wait to start the next book!!
Stop using foul language for no other purpose than to add words to the book.
Jake Bible must be around 15 years old, the language was horrible and not one time in the whole book was anything resembling intelligence ever spoken
The narrator was fine.
The narrator did a good job he wasn't the problem, the language of the book was comparable to that of a teen age kid who wrote a book for the first time, which is sad because the story could have been good.
I could not recommend this book to anyone not even if it were for free.
