Publisher's Summary

As Flex, his niece Trina, Gem, Hemp, and Charlie brave the wild world teeming with the walking dead, they make up the rules as they go along.

Flex Sheridan was an electrician before the world took a nasty turn; Gem, an artist. Hemp is a scientist who specializes in epidemics and also carries in his bag of tricks a mechanical engineering degree. Charlie is a metal and punk rocker in her mid-twenties, proficient enough to take out two zombies at once with her crossbow.

Each one of them has their own story. This volume is Gem's chronicle. They know they must stay safe, but they know that to simply hide away is to allow the creatures who crave human flesh to walk the world forever. Join them as they struggle to balance their natural tendencies toward self-preservation with their strong desire to rid the world of the zombie scourge. Our band of machine gun-toting nomads moves from place to place in fortified vehicles, keeping their eyes peeled for survivors, and zombie battles ensue at nearly every turn.

But this is not a world where love dies...this is a moment in history when human connections and things of beauty are more important than ever; things to be embraced and cherished. So hop in the Crown Victoria with the ballistic steel body and the swiveling AK-47 on the top, and hang on to your seat as Gem powers the car through hordes of zombies and gets her precious Trina and Flex where they need to be.

Learn what Hemp and Charlie discover in the lab - a huge clue to what caused the epidemic that has 90% of the world hunting the rest.

But after you meet this group, you'll begin to wonder: Who are the hunters, and who are the hunted?

Eric Shelman reading Eric Shelman.....enough said

I have loved this series for years. Read all the books so why not listen to them ???? what makes an Eric Shelman book that much better.....well, Eric Shelman reading Eric Shelman. Gem is a no nonsense girl who knows how to survive, knows how to love and knows how to keep those around her safe, as safe as one can be in a zombie apocalypse. HIGHLY recommend The Gem Cardoza Chronicle as well as the entire series.

If you are the author please read this

I am a huge huge fan of the zombie genre and I even enjoy the cheesy campy kind of stories that are out there.
However the author of this particular book has destroyed the story. I mean don't get me wrong the actual story itself is not without Merit and it could become a good if not even great little book, however I love you so much and damn I'm so in love with you and I love that kid and I would die for you any minute and I love you with all my heart every other sentence just wears on you.
I mean the apocalypse is great but not every other sentence or paragraph has to reafirm your love for somebody. At least let your actions speak louder than your words. It just wears thin on the soul.
I mean it's almost as if you are using it to fill in the gaps of the story where you don't know what else to write.
I think if you were to pull back from the Romantic a little and focus on the genre and the dystopian type of world they live in it could be a great story.
We don't need this I love you constant mouth vomit stuff going on and we don't need the soft porn either, really just take a step back and think about what you're doing to your book. I think this could be a great novel. You've just got to quit focusing so much on the love story and work on the zombie story.
I'm telling you as a woman who loves to be complimented I would be just about at my limit with someone needing the constant reassurance and reaffirmation of our love.
Please Please for the sake of the zombies at least stop.....they are all going to develop diabetes from the constant sweetheart crud.

Amazing

I got to know the narrator from his work narrating a different series of books and I can definitely hear his emotions in his own work. Flex and Gema really come to life in this installment and I had to remember this was Gema's point of view. it's gritty and visceral, the end of life as we know it will never be pretty. 2 thumbs up here Eric

Another great book in the series

This book is written from the view of Gem rather than Flex like the first book. The author did a fantastic job of capturing her personality in it. It really did feel like it was written by a woman, much more emotional! Really enjoyed listening to it and looking forward to the next book in the series. Learned lots about the science behind the Zombie outbreak, possible cures and ways to kill them.
