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!

If a feminist liberal wrote a zombie series.

I really tried with this series, but its just BAD! It seems to be written by a woman who is not only, NOT a pepper type but also doesn't appear to know ANYTHING about military service, firearms, or having a relationship with someone who does. The "romance" between the two main characters is borderline a "shades of grey" type of controlling without any substance.
It's just NOT good!

Book great audible even better

Would you consider the audio edition of Escalation to be better than the print version?

Yes. Reader really good for main character and does a great job with guy voices

What other book might you compare Escalation to and why?

Books stand on their own.

Any additional comments?

Super series! Really enjoy this author's works. Except. Bisexual lead character getting old. Author stuck this in maybe to titillate but it's a turn off IMO. Still 5 stars though for overall unique story.

Another 5⭐

Absolutely binging these book!
Love the storyline and all the characters just finished the third one now I'm on to the fourth one. At times I swear the author wrote about me and my husband LOL

Tess as always a great narrator. I have several books that I've listened to where she narrates and these books she does 100% Justice to!!

I'm finishing a book everyday and a half I'm afraid I'll run out before I know it. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop and me to start bawling like a baby let's hope it doesn't happen to the storyline. I'm just afraid because books this good never stay that's good, but it's definitely not disappointing right now!!

love it

This series just gets better and better. I love how the author ends each book on a satisfying note. This appreciation comes from the irritation I have with novels that end on a cliff hanger. This author knows how to end each book with the reader wanting more but not leaving out so much that it's frustrating. I think that provides a nice balance.
