Publisher's Summary

Cities are bombed out ruins and wilderness is humanity’s new home. The undead roam the earth, and the new world order is about the struggle to survive. Sonny Daniels begins an emotional and physical journey of personal survival and protecting those he loves.

While survival is a constant struggle, Sonny’s most desperate fight is the struggle preserve some semblance of a compassionate soul. Sonny and his parents are caught in the zombie outbreak in upstate New York. After the passage of the first year, their base is attacked by bandits and their safety has again been compromised. Fearing for their loved ones, Sonny’s parents send him and his orphaned childhood friends, Ashley and Carrie, to Fort Denver Colorado on a military plane.

When Fort Denver is overrun with zombies, the three are alone in a zombie infested wasteland without the army’s protection, forced to rely upon one another and a handful of equally desperate survivors they encounter along the journey. Sonny is determined to do whatever it takes to protect Ashley and Carrie while finding a safe place to call home, but survival can force you to make dark decisions.

Awesome audiobook, can’t wait for book 2

I really enjoyed the story written from a young boy’s perspective, a sort of coming of age in a new post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies. The narrator did an awesome job capturing emotions and subtle undertones of the characters. Highly recommend this audiobook to everyone. I know all of the apocalypse junkies out there would love the series.

Loved it!! Made my commute fun!

This was a great Audiobook. I took me a couple of weeks to listen to it as I can only listen on my way to and from work each day - but I couldn't wait to get in the car each day to pick up where I left off. That's the sign of a great Audiobook! I really like this Narrator!!! You will Love it too. Hope this helps :) Jess

Loved it! I actually cried in one part!

This story was a bit emotional but that's a good thing! I was moved to tears in one scene and You will know it when you hear it. This is a really good post apocalyptic story and I will definitely buy the next in the series. The Narrator was soooo good - did the young characters so well!!

Kids Zombie Apocalypse

This might entertain the younger crowd, but it is definitely not an adult oriented book. The narration is ok, but his child voices are too whiny. Young dialogue is not believable at all. AT ALL. Situations are not believable at all either.

Can’t recommend for adults. Also can’t recommend for kids...c’mon it’s zombies. Maybe ok for high school kids.

Really Good and Somewhat Sad Zombie Tale

Young Kids in the Zombie Apocalypse (pre-teens to young teens) and they have a heck of a time surviving and have to grow up fast. I liked this story but I hope the next installment has a few more bright spots. Of course - the zombie apocalypse isn't supposed to be happy - is it?

Very Young Teens in a Zombie Apocalypse - SUPERB!

I've never read or listened to a post apocalyptic story from a child's perspective. This must have been a tough one to narrate but I thought BC did quite well. Good Story too!! I will continue to listen to more in this series if there are more coming. I would recommend this Audiobook. ~ Christian

Much more than a zombie thriller!

This book was perfect for a cross country road trip. It’s fast paced story telling kept me enthralled and alert. The author captures the innocence, vulnerability and strength of the ‘coming of age’ main characters. Survival forces them to mature quickly and difficult choices challenge their developing values and beliefs. They overcome unthinkable situations while bonding with each other. You can’t help but root for them along the way. The ending leaves you wanting more, luckily, the second book in the dark days series - Sanctuary - is available.

ten year old fashionEASTa in the zombie apocalypse

I couldn't finish, in fact I got my credit back. First chapter the book is told by a ten year old who describes his parents as super attractive down to muscles &has to describe what their wearing. Then proceeds to do the same thing with his friends...just weird and not typical. later in the book they meet up with survivors & he describes their physical appearance too and has a grown-up discussion about love, yep love with a complete stranger. I don't know what ten year olds this author has observed but my guess is he needs to do more research. yikes.
