For Max Duncan, the word Sundown means one thing … run. Corpses infected with a mysterious, incurable virus are roaming free throughout the United States, feasting upon the living. The Duncan family compound in Montana is Max’s only hope for survival - but to get there, she has to flee from South Carolina and survive crossing several states with her daughter Jack in tow. Max has a choice to make. Does she risk her own life, and her daughter’s, to find the man she’s always loved? Griffin Wells was Max’s high school sweetheart, and he has no idea that Jack is his child.

I'm picky. Really, really picky about my post-apoc fiction. It's my favorite genre and I am just as apt to return a book as I am to love it. However, 100 books into the genre on audible, Courtney has quickly become one of my favorite fiction author with just two books. This only ever happened with the Adrian's undead diaries series in the past. I can't wait until book 3 comes out! As a matter of fact, I loved her books so much that this is the first time in the last four years I was compelled to seek out and join her facebook group. Excitedly I found that if you sign up for her newsletter you get a new series in your email every two weeks and episode 1, which includes zombie, was GREAT! You will not be disappointed with this book where the heroines aren't actually morons who needs a man to save them.

Love this book! As I love the genre (and you can tell by my reading list I'm zooming through all there is on audible), I always am on the look out for books with strong female characters. I'm usually complete disappointed but Courtney has made a completely relatable character and a storyline that's hard to stop listening to! Each of her books combines a great story line, some real survival tips and a good amount zombie... If you can see my reviews, you can see I'm picky and easily disappointed... I can easily say... YES, PICK THIS ONE!

Loneliness drives an agoraphobic shut-in to write a letter to the girl in the apartment across the hall, trying to strike up a friendship. Unfortunately, a series of apocalyptic events interrupt this attempt at human contact. Now he watches out the window as the world gets cut to pieces by plague and riots. There are even rumors of zombies. Getting to know someone could be harder than he thought, let alone surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. He might even need to leave the apartment.

As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalized, and martial law, curfews, and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast and the Scottish Highlands and in the Irish Republic. For George Tull and the other residents of the Waverly-Price Retirement Home, walking to the coast is not an option.

Winter is here. The cold spreads over the land, shriveling and choking out all the plant life. Harsh. Unforgiving. The first winter without electricity will surely claim more human lives as well. The isolation may do more damage than the cold, however. Too much time alone drives people to unthinkable acts.

The end of the world is close. The dead walk the Earth, feasting on the living. Rogue bands of crazies, gangs of cannibals, and evil organizations fight for what is left of civilization. Blood and violence are the laws of the land. Those that survive must do things that no sane person should be forced to do. Good thing Elsbeth isn't exactly sane.

This a solid author who writes good books. I only rated this book a four because some parts were a little too far-fetched but that is more a taste choice than probably the writing. It wasn't disappointing but the first book was really good so my expectations were really high.

It's been a few weeks since I listened to this book but I can't really remember the plot... which says exactly how I feel it should be rated. I loved the first book and the narrators were excellent. I know I listened all the way through without a problem or boredom but it just didn't capture my attention like the first book did.
