Publisher's Summary

The forecast for tomorrow?

Bloody!

Z Children: The Surge is action-packed from start to finish. Focusing on JW and Virginia's group, the story captures the true ugliness and sacrifice that goes along with survival.

Buckle up as a rescue mission is brimming with spine-tingling terror. An armored truck becomes the new Alamo. And there's a wedding which is anything but "a happily ever after".

JW's group has made camp in a hotel overlooking a Dallas hospital where someone is trapped. Bonnie and Ranger, the now-inseparable duo, have faith that JW can not only stay alive, but also save this person from an otherwise certain death. JW, however, isn't so sure. He's faced enemies before but nothing as unsettling as the innocent death masks these Z children wear.

The ex-special forces drifter used to believe he'd seen the worst the world had to offer.

He was wrong.

    "So much better than I expected"
    Any additional comments?

    The zombie children are frightening. This book was so good, I went and purchased the first book so I could find out how everything unfolded. I received this audiobook for free though Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Second book in a good zombie series!"

    Second book in a good zombie series. Looking forward to a third book. I received this audio book for free for an honest review. I encountered a glitch at 2 minutes in, all the way to minute 16, of total silence. Hopefully that will be fixed soon. Good characters, fast plot, what more can you ask for? Come on book three!

    "Scary Zombies Kids Are Back"

    Book 2 of the Z children series as good as the first. Love the fact the kids are more aggressive and smarter than adult zombies. Enjoy some of the survivor characters but has cliffhanger ending , need the next book ASAP. Highly recommend this unique series! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. THANK YOU!

    "Great second book in this awesome zombie series"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was a great second book to a great zombie apocalypse series. Unlike the first book, it focused more on one group, rather than jumping around between several. The only aspect of this that bothered me was that some stories, at least one I can specifically think of, aren't mentioned at all. This isn't a huge problem to me, though, as long as the author circles back to them in a future book. This methodology works beautifully for The Walking Dead, so no biggie.

    "Suffers same drawbacks of book 1."

    I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    The series had a somewhat intriguing setup and that's why I had picked up book 1 few weeks ago. And I had hated that it ended in a deliberate cliffhanger. I then got this 2nd book of the series, hoping to figure out what happened. And guess what.. I got no answer..!! The cliffhanger from book 1 doesn't get any conclusion in book 2. Instead, the characters involved get a totally new scene, without any mention of the events in the last cliffhanger. Like, wtf..!!

    And on top of that, book 2 also ends in a cliffhanger. And now I don't have faith that this will get resolved in the next book either. I hate deliberate cliffhangers being used as a bait for the next book. And then the next book not answering that cliffhanger is a crime.

    "Good start"

    While not unique as far as zombie books go it was good. Definitely had me captivated from the beginning. Did love that the book included a deaf character. Looking forward to more!

    "I'm hooked on this series"
    Any additional comments?

    Good addition to the series. Just as entertaining, engaging and enjoyable as the first book. The story pulled me right in once again and held my attention from start to finish. These zombies may be small but they are fast, fierce, smart and very deadly.

    Be warned just like the first book in the series this one ends in a cliffhanger. Really good cast of characters. Both likable and unlikable. Of coarse JW and Bonnie are favorites as well as Ranger. Chris falls in that last category.

    Once again the story switches between groups of survivors. I was however disappointed this one didn't start at the exact place the last one ended. I couldn't wait to get back to the dock and harbor. Then we are left hanging as to what happened. By the time it did get back to them I had forgotten about them and was wrapped up in what was happening with Bonnie and JW. When it added another survivor and their backstory it seemed like it was out of left field although it made sense in the end and is where they should all come together in the next book. Hopefully, unless the story takes another turn to yet another set of survivors. I am hooked though and will continue with the series no matter which direction the story goes.

    Johnny Mack does a great job with the narration. Nice voice that it easy to listen to for long periods of time. His voice pulls you into the story and brings it and the characters to life. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. Male and female. I never had a problem knowing exactly who was speaking. Very enjoyable.
