Publisher's Summary

It's been twelve years since the undead hordes swept over the earth forcing mankind to the brink of extinction. We now live like rats, scavenging in the ruins of our fallen civilization as the dead hunt us night and day. There is little left to scavenge, however. Grocery stores were emptied ages ago, gas tanks have long been dry and bullets are so precious that a man is lucky to have two to his name. Still, we survive. But for how much longer? Instinct and love have combined to turn Darwin's theory on its head. The strongest didn't survive in this world. They were the first to die, leaving behind a generation of orphans. It's a generation that's never had a full belly. It's a generation that has no idea what an Xbox did, or what algebra is for. It's a generation of children who never laugh out loud, and who have learned to cry softly because the dead are always near and the dead are always so very, very hungry.

So enjoyable!

I have a tough time taking zombie apocalypse books seriously so I wasn't sure how much I was going to like this, the blurb however sounded interesting so I decided to give it a go. I'm really glad that I did, the book was very entertaining!

The characters are fantastic, Jillybean, Jenn, Mike & Stu are all very different and yet they all ft together really well and they're so easy to like. The supporting cast is also well crafted.

I was impressed by the world building it was vivid and believable and the description of the zombies is really well done. The changes to society are really interesting and detailed.

And if you're looking for action, you'll find a lot of that as well, especially in the second half.

The narration is excellent, I really enjoyed the character voice they were easily recognizable for the different characters and the delivery matched the emotions and activities during the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Yes!!

This book is really only a four star book. I'm giving it five based on what I am expecting as the series continues. I liked The Undead World series so much that my rating may be a little bias.

P.S. Jilly is back!

An evolution of the Undead World Series.

Generation Z takes place twelve years after the zombie apocalypse first reared its ugly head intending to destroy mankind. An aptly named title as we will examine the generation of survivors born into the apocalypse. These children never knew the experience of shopping, never played a video game, or watched television. They only knew the pressure of growing up in an environment where they were on guard 24/7, where the slightest sound might bring death to their door. Unique to this story is that the zombies never stopped growing! For whatever reason the zombies continued to evolve; grow bigger, stronger, and faster. The characters are wonderfully developed and you may recognize some of them. Jillybean from the Undead World Series is here as this can be seen as an evolution from that series. I was fully engrossed in the story and definitely look forward to book two.

Not great.

It's a kids book about zombies, essentially. Basic, cartoony, cute. Not my cup of tea.

Not bad

Not a bad zombie story. Somewhat interesting characters that grew with experience. Needs some back stories to explain a few things.

Peter Meredith Always Delivers!

It is great to see Jillybean and Neil back in the fray. Peter Meredith paints a chilling portrait of a dying world, pierced by moments that make you smile and laugh and hope.
