It has been months...Steve has seen the worst in himself...and others. Now, it seems that zombies aren't the only threat to the lives of his companions. Will he lose those he loves to the walking dead...or a murderer? Kevin is the last geek standing, and a reunion with an old acquaintance puts him back in charge of a group of survivors. Will he fail in the one thing he thought he was prepared for? Or will he find his redemption?

I will be brief. but effective with this. the overall story is superb. Nothing like the imagination of TW brown to keep you company on long days on the road. I have nothing bad to say about the charecters. stories or anything of that sort.

on to the bad but fixable part. I was listening intently for patterns of errors or flaws. your voice. is perfect. but the sound quality is .. lacking. I will explain

in some parts it seemed like you were far away from the microphone. or turning your head. maybe even getting a cup of coffee. I am not sure. that is my only complaint

on to the great part. your voice is mesmerizing
utterly drew me in. along with your writing and it blew my mind how I wanted to keep listening no matter what
so if this is your new venture. keep it up. I applaud your new venue. and I am first in line for snapshot 2. so my old friend. there you have it. the good the bad and the ugly. mostly good though. thank you again.

Dakota Riley is a member of the Seattle Drug Task Force. During an investigation into an international drug smuggling ring, he loses his best friend and partner. To add insult to injury, he is assigned a rookie, Marc Bradley - the son of a black fisherman from South Carolina. Seeking revenge rather than justice, Dakota ditches the rookie...and almost gets himself killed. After leaving the hospital for a "forced" vacation, Dakota and Marc head to Marc's hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. A day out on a fishing boat goes wrong when a mysterious storm arrives. The boat is destroyed, and the two men wash ashore...in 1861....

while, when I got this book i thought it was something else. this book made me binge read. I could not put her down once I opened it. it was a depth of which I keep thinking about its characters. Dakota is one of my heroes right up there with tom Sawyer. he will stick with you in the worst and best times. his life is a testimony of never giving up. your best Todd.

normally I don't like sci fi. but this book is not unlike the campfire stories I heard growing up. I won't ruin anything but Todd does not disappoint. its a amusing take on aliens and even after a year of having it. I still remember the plot well.

Winter has gone, but the world is no less inhospitable. The survivors of this first winter now face some of the darkest and most soul-wrenching choices thus far. From the outskirts of London to an island refuge in Oregon, small groups struggle to build a new life. Kevin recovers to a realization that shatters his dreams, yet he must stand up and take the role of leader - or die trying. His followers, now largely consisting of juvenile delinquents and society cast-offs, need him.

I think I have been with Mr Brown since the beginning. I have never been disappointed. I love the evolution of each story and each character. even when I thought all was lost with the death of a major character. Todd pulled me right back in. GET this and all of his work. you can't go wrong
