Publisher's summary

Vivian and Hadley find themselves in a situation that is even more threatening than the dead walking the earth. Kidnapped by armed men and taken deep into Las Vegas, they're cut off from anyone who cares about them and thrust into a world so sick and twisted that it can only be described as madness. With little hope of being found, Vivian and Hadley must team up with one of the very men who abducted them if they have any hope of escaping their new nightmare.

Watching Vivian get thrown into the back of a van almost tears Axl apart, and he's determined to find her no matter what it takes. With the tension growing between him and Angus, Axl finds himself wondering if the price will be his relationship with his brother. Putting both old and new wounds aside, Axl and Angus must infiltrate the group holding Vivian and Hadley and make their escape through a zombie-ridden Vegas.

More please :)

This was such a good book! Once I started listening to this book, I did not want to put it down. At this point, I am going to have to admit that I have become slightly obsessed with this series. That is a good thing. A very good thing. I am completely invested in this group of characters and really want to see them flourish despite the horrendous world that they must live in. I really had a wonderful time with this book.

One thing that was a little different about this book as compared to the previous two is the fact that we get to see not only Vivian's perspective but Axl's as well. I do have to say that it did take me a minute to adjust to another point of view and a second narrator but I found that I really ended up appreciating that second point of view.

This is not a feel-good story. Don't get me wrong, there are some moments when things actually work out for the characters but overall this was not a pleasant tale. This story is set in a world where the dead walk the streets but the real enemies are often other survivors. This story illustrates some of the evil that humans can do to others but it also shows the strength of people put in the worst situation. I love the fact that despite the fact this group of characters always have each other's backs and try to do the right thing.

I do love the characters in this book. It was great to see the progress in the relationships between the characters. There were a few character losses that broke my heart just a little. I have a lot of respect for this group that never gives up even when things seem to be at their worst. There are a lot of really terrible things that happen in this installment so these characters are definitely tested in this installment.

I thought that Hillary Huber and Patrick Lawlor did a great job with the narration of this book. I was a little surprised by the additi
