Narrative was very monotone. With a Post apocalyptic novel with women characters there should have been more contrast between the emotions. All in all I did enjoy the book and it’s premise, I will continue on to the next book in the series.

Would your neighborhood work together to survive if the s--t hit the fan? More chaos erupts in book two of the SHTF series when the lights don't come back on and there's still no word - or help - from the government. Tullymore is divided, and on the brink of an internal war. Tensions only rise further when one innocent life is on the line, and they must make a deadly trip into town to scavenge for a crucial supply that someone may have had all along.

For ultrarunners Kate and Frederico, a typical Saturday morning is spent pounding out a 20 to 30-mile "fun run." It's during one of their runs that an insidious illness descends upon northern California, turning humans into flesh-shredding zombies. When Kate receives a desperate call from her son, Carter, she and Frederico flee their hometown and set out to help him. The only problem? Carter attends college over 200 miles away.

I'm a fan of the most explicit zombie novels but now & then it's good to listen to a single story & the struggle with specific characters. I'm a mother so this book hit home through so many aspects. I truly appreciated the raw grit of Kate to get to her son,I even teared up a couple times. I'm ready for more from this author thank you!

Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest. It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are fast, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.

The last two months have brought nothing but death and destruction for Emma Rossi. She survived the initial zombie outbreak with her husband, Jake, and their dog, Daphne, but the cost was steep: Sanibel has fallen. In a world where the only constant is change, the group is pushed to their limits before reaching the gates of Asylum, a coastal stronghold in Sarasota, Florida.

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.

What didn’t you like about Jordan Leigh’s performance?

What happened to the original narrator? Sorry Leigh way to over dramatic! Not every character can sound like Rambo! Almost didn't finish.
