    While Layla Petrovich returns home to rural Hamletville after a desperate call from her psychic grandmother, she never could have anticipated the horror of what Grandma Petrovich has foreseen. The residents of Hamletville will need Layla's cool head, fast blade, and itchy trigger finger to survive the undead apocalypse that's upon them. But even that may not be enough. With mankind silenced, it soon becomes apparent that we were never alone.

    Carnie. Ride jockey. Roustabout. White trash. Tilt girl. Gypsy. Cricket has been called a lot of things, but she never thought survivor of the zombie apocalypse would be one of them. One day she's barking on the midway, and the next day, the world is eating itself alive.

    Who said the carnie life is boring?

    If I were to begin listening to the Harvesting Series, I would definitely give this another listen to refresh myself of the events. It's short enough..Show More »

    In the little town of Brighton, Amelia's practice of Wicca has always marked her as odd. But Amelia can't change what she is. Knowing how to see auras, heal, and create spells comes naturally to her. Only Madame Knightly, the ancient matriarch and owner of Witch Wood Estate to whom Amelia plays caretaker, doesn't seem to mind her conjoining. In fact, the crumbling old mansion is full oddities.

    A little taste of witch magic in a zombie world.

    This book goes back to the beginning of the outbreak and this times tells the story from Amelia the good witch's side. I can't wait to see what will ..Show More »
