Publisher's Summary

She thought she was prepared for the end of the world...until it actually came.

Alex Duncan is a mother, a sister - and the daughter of a doomsday prepper. She always thought her father was insane, raving about an apocalypse she never believed in, but when a plague hits the United States and the dead no longer stay dead, Alex discovers heeding her deceased father’s advice is what will keep her family alive. Before he died, Alex’s father created a compound in Montana just in case situations like this arose.

Hell has arrived on Earth.

The dead walk, hungry for human flesh. Living in a highly populated city like Las Vegas makes the reality of the plague imminent to Alex. With little time to spare, Alex must make split-second decisions to prevent her family from being devoured. Facing the end, Alex has three goals: Escape Las Vegas. Get to the compound. Survive.

As the outside world crumbles and grows darker, Alex faces adversity from not just the infected, but the uninfected as well. Government assistance is nowhere in sight, and rumors fly that the nation’s only solution to the growing plague is execution.

Not everyone will outlast the plague. Doomsday is here. Will Alex be up to the challenge, or fall, and rise again as one of the undead?

Bonus! Includes Alone, a Sundown series novella.

Preppers and Zombies

The majority of post apocalyptic prepper books typically deal with EMPs, and most zombie books don’t have preppers. This book combines the 2. This author does a great job developing the characters and focuses on multiple family dynamics that Is refreshing.

Also, there are a lot of post apocalyptic books that are only 5-7 hrs, but this one is over 10, so I get my moneys worth.

The narrator does a great job with her voices, especially with the kids.

DOWNSIDE - I have to wait for the next book to come out.

Worst Book Ever

Imagine someone watching one episode of Walking Dead and one episode of Z Nation and then thinking to themselves I can write a zombie book! Yup its that good. (SARCASM) After talking with a friend we decided this book could be a drinking game. Every time she mentions being a prepper, being prepared or making a plan take a sip of beer. Then every time she does something stupid take a shot. You would be passed out cold in 2 chapters. The author is so repetitive and boring that I started praying for them to die just so the book would end. I can't say more without giving spoilers. I'm hoping you listen to my warning and don't waste your credit, but just in case I won't ruin the magic that is this book. (more sarcasm) The narrator does a good job, I just hated the baby voices. If you love the sound of whiney children then you are in for a treat. I love audio books and looovvve zombie apocalypse stories and rarely give bad reviews but this book should come with a warning label.

First half of Book 5 Star then downhill

Excellent book almost ruined by the introduction of a male possible love interest for the female lead. Suddenly the previous 2 leads became absolute jerks. Almost abandoned listening as a result. Narrator did very good job.

Entertaining

Overall, and entertaining perspective on the survival of the zombie apocalypse. I think my only issue with the story was that despite her training in preparedness by her father, The protagonist seemed to make a number of Gross tactical mistakes throughout the book such as letting persons sneak up right behind her on multiple occasions and camping at rest stops and crowded campgrounds. The one real disaster was talking about their camper getting stuck because body parts were packed up in the wheel wells. Again, A little nitpicky but overall good read.

Great First Book of a series...

Love this book! As I love the genre (and you can tell by my reading list I'm zooming through all there is on audible), I always am on the look out for books with strong female characters. I'm usually complete disappointed but Courtney has made a completely relatable character and a storyline that's hard to stop listening to! Each of her books combines a great story line, some real survival tips and a good amount zombie... If you can see my reviews, you can see I'm picky and easily disappointed... I can easily say... YES, PICK THIS ONE!

REALLY GOOD!

I love it when a strong lead character is a woman that can take care of her self because I can relate to that. The only issue I had was the Narration. She was ok for the female voices but was awful for the male voices. Over all I give the book 5*****. I tried to listen to book 2 but I really felt like Max deserved her own voice
