Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in. Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier.

If you could sum up Mordacious in three words, what would they be?

Great narrators! You won't be able to stop listening!

What other book might you compare Mordacious to and why?

I was a bit skeptical to start this series because Until the End of the World was so freaking amazing, but this series is just as captivating and the characters were well thought out by Sarah Lyons Flemings.

Which scene was your favorite?

I love how the two series tie into each other and that we're able to see what Eric is up to while Cassie is with her group.

Cassie Forrest could almost believe life at Kingdom Come Farm is perfect, with Adrian and her friends at her side and spring on the way. The spring thaw also means millions of defrosting zombies, however, and if the past year has taught her anything, it's that life in this new world is highly imperfect. When Safe Zones throughout the country begin to disappear and the zombies at the fences grow in number, Cassie clings to the hope that if she has the people she loves most, it will be all right.

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

This unusual collection of true ghost stories and hauntings has been put together by Simon B Murik, who is the son of a long line of mediums and sensitives originally from Eastern Europe. Many of the stories come from his own experiences, while others have been contributed by family members and those who have shared paranormal experiences and unexplained phenomenon with him.
