Publisher's Summary

Is anybody out there?

After a long winter spent hunkering down in Wyoming, Bree, Nate, and the gang are back on the road. The harsh temperatures up in the northern regions might have decimated the undead scourge somewhat, but soon they have to face reality: it's not just zombies that are out there to hunt people down and kill them. For humanity to have a fighting chance to rebuild a semblance of civilization, everyone will have to work together - and resources are scarce. Someone will have to go out there and face the danger - and maybe find out what happened to the undead that were smart enough to flee the cold. Only the strong and smart have survived, making everyday life just a little more deadly for everyone.

This series is getting better and better!

I really do think this has becoming my favorite zombie series of all time. I love the accuracy of the science, the character development, the villains, and pacing. I finished this book in one setting the day it came out. I am probably going to read 4, I don't think I can wait for the audio book.
This is one of the first zombie books written with a female lead that didn't have me gritting my teeth. Bree is relatable, competent without perfection, and best of all evolving! She is growing with the series.
My favorite things about these books as both a Soldier and a scientist, is that both the combat and microbiology is done so well!

Female lead in a zombie series? Awesome!

I've really enjoyed all of this series so far....and looking forward to any upcoming books.

The main character, a female who's smart as a whip (no, I'm not 90 lol) , kicks ass as a sniper, swears like a trucker (and sarcastic as sh!t - which is awesome) and has the badass hot guy leader reluctantly wrapped around her finger.

She is by far not the only character, or person of interest to be drawn to though. There are great action scenes, fun interactions between characters, and fascinating storylines throughout the book(s).

Bree (main female) seemed extra moody and sarcastic this book though, which was annoying. She did seem back to herself by the end of the book, so fingers crossed it was just because of the situations she had been through.

Anyhoo...great series- fully recommend!

not worth the time

this is a terrible story. the characters actions and environment are inconsistent and ridiculous. I liked the first two book but number three isn't worth the time.

It's a fun series. The main characters lab experience is well researched. I can't wait for the next book.

I am pretty invested now.

You know when you start to read something and then you realize that oh, now I have to finish it? This is that type of book. However, I am not too upset that I am going finish the series.
