Publisher's Summary

The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve. The highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling underground cult classic, Day by Day Armageddon, begins where the first novel left off.

BEGIN INTERCEPT

Armies of undead have risen up across the U.S. and around the globe; there is no safe haven from the diseased corpses hungering for human flesh. But in the heat of a Texas wasteland, a small band of survivors attempt to counter the millions closing in around them.

INTERCEPT COMPLETED

Day by day, the handwritten journal entries of one man caught in a worldwide cataclysm capture the desperation--and the will to survive--as he joins forces with a handful of refugees to battle soulless enemies both human and inhuman from inside an abandoned strategic missile facility. But in the world of the undead, is mere survival enough?

One of the BEST Zombie "Journey" stories out there

I'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better recommendation for a book about one man's journey through a catastrophic zombie event. It IS written as a journal, which may take a few minutes to get used to, but trust me, IT WORKS. Not only does the journal-style work, but it also adds to the tension of the story. Do yourself a favor, and download this AND the sequel. You will want to start up the sequel right after the first one ends. There is nothing in this book that I would've changed. It is pretty much perfect, for what it is.

This is just a great series!! Must Listen!

If you read/listened to the first DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON, then you already know that this second book would be just as great. It leaves off right when the first book ends. Its a different scenario because now its more established survivalist book. The zombies are faster, smarter and scarier. And its a great thriller with alot of good twist throughout the book. I can not wait for the 3rd book to come to audio! Please hurry!! and if you like these two books then you would love the TV show on A&E, The Walking Dead. But yes I recommend this series!!

Travel and zombies

What I liked about this book was its combination of travel, survival, and zombies. Like many great books in the past (Steven King's The Stand), this book incorporates a long journey into the plot that makes this story maybe even better than the first in the series.

Better than the first!

I've listened to a ton of audiobooks while I commute, and am a big fan of the zombie apocalypse genre. This book is a masterpiece. The first book got me hooked, but the second book is probably better than the first in my opinion. I started listening to this story and was so consumed by the story that I didn't want to leave the car. I got my wife to start reading it, and even though she is skeptical about this genre, she was absolutely consumed by it as well. Bourne...if you read this review...for the love of GOD please write a book three! I have to know what happens in China! BUY IT!

Great book!

This was a great audiobook and a terrific sequel to the original Day by Day Armageddon! The author knows how to spin a good tale and I was on the edge of my seat. The narrator helped to make the story come alive. Being a big fan of the living dead genre, I couldn't get enough and am now pining for another sequel.

More military oriented than book one

Has way more military-detail content than the first one. We get the run-down on aircraft mechanics, guns and ammo, tanks, fuel, and etc...

I'm not saying this is a bad thing... it's just more specifically military oriented than the first novel (which was more about one man's survival among zombies). The story does stand alone, but you'll probably want to read the first book before this one so you'll know how the main character got to where he's at from the start of this story.

There is a lot of suspense considering it is written in diary form. And a bit of a "mystery" too since nobody knows how bad the situation is outside of their own immediate vicinity - has the world been overrun? Is there still leadership? What was the source of the zombie-infection?

It had a very interesting ending too... now I'll have to get the 3rd book when it comes out to find out what the source of the zombies really was!

Started out Good

The story started out great and was exciting but it slowly became very drawn out and boring. I have no desire to read the final installation of the series.

I wish I'd stopped at the first one

I absolutely loved the first book. Brilliant, scary, everything I would have hoped.

In case you want to hear this one I won't go into spoiler details, but generally it feels like this is where the publisher started talking about how to make a series.

I'm a huge fan of independent authors and I wish this series well, but after this book I won't be continuing the series.

Jay Snyder is excellent as always. I will look for more of his narrations. Check out ex-heroes!
