Publisher's Summary

Part two of the series picks up immediately after the end of the first. David's wife, Laura, is forced to take over the protection of their family as the boat travels out into Hailey Bay, away from the zombies. However, the boat's pilot plans to dock back in the overrun city to rescue his own family, which will put Laura, Kim, and Annie in jeopardy. Laura is forced to overcome unimaginable horrors as the zombie apocalypse explodes around her, but it is the evil intent of humans that present her greatest challenge. The reader is taken far beyond the edge of their seat as Laura pushes forward to the inevitable end. No one is safe in a world where the dead hunt the living.

BRUTAL HUMANITY

SOMETIMES I LISTEN TO A BOOK AND WANT TO REACH IN AND RESCUE THE UNFORTUNATE SOULS WHO I KNOW ARE GOING TO BE VICTIMS. IN THIS BOOK I GRIPPED THE EDGE OF MY SEAT AND HELD MY BREATH IN HOPES THE VICTIMS ARE RESCUED AND SAVED BUT THIS IS NOT A HEARTFELT ROMANCE OR FAIRYTALE.....THIS IS THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE AND EVERYONE ALIVE BECOMES A VICTIM IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.....SOME BY SHARKS, ZOMBIES, OR HUMANS. RELENTLESS AND SCARY AS HELL. BUCKLE-UP LISTENERS BECAUSE THIS RIDE DOES NOT STOP ANYTIME SOON.

Getting even better

After getting away by the skin of their teeth, Billy wants to go _back_ into the city to rescue his mom. I don't know why people always think in zombie books that everyone is dead, except just their particular loved one who has stayed put waiting to be rescued.

But its all a rather believable story, there is a reason why there's not too many zombies about, and the conspiracy plot begins to thicken. Little by little things are revealed; the cops don't seem to be who they are, and whats this about a cure?

This story is mostly about Laura, fighting for her life and kids, and boy does she take a beating here. Laura's character starts to develop now, no longer the naive civilized wife, she not only needs to be smart to survive, but also brutal. Its all rather exciting. And gross.

Great characters

Any additional comments?


Great series that will hold you captive. Does not always turn out well for the group - just like in life. Plot gets a little convoluted, but it is a zombie story!

love all the deadlocks books and audio

Would you listen to Deadlocked 2 again? Why?

I listen to the deadlocked 2 while I'm at workI listen to it at least three times it was really amazing and intense

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadlocked 2?

when Billy drove his boat under the bridge and then the bombing it was so intense

What does Lameece Issaq bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

when the mom would do anything for her kids to live that is truly amazing

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

deadlock 3 4 5 6 7 I hope it goes to 89 10 I listen to all

Couldn't finish

I rather enjoyed the first book of this series, that's why I can't understand why this good disappointed me so much...I couldn't even finish the story.

I think it was the dialog or maybe it's because the main character was female and the author doesn't seem to write women as well. Either way, I had to give it.

Deadlocked 2 picks up, without missing beat

Like I said earlier Deadlocked 2 picks up, without missing beat, immediately after the first book but from David's wife Laura's perspective. The zombie apocalypse continues to allow the crazy's to come out of the wood work, not sure how they manage but they do. Now it is up to Laura to keep the family together. She's powered by adrenaline, grief, Oxycontin and the fundamental instinct to protect her children. Wise believes that women characters are, more often that not, not portrayed as real women probably would be in these situations. I find it very refreshing when a strong willed stand alone female protagonists hit my ear, there should be more. I will be listening to the next chapter, I just can't help myself.

Good but not great

I adored the first book in the series and love how the author is writing a different character each book as the story progresses but I wasn't fond of this book and truly dislike the character.

She's whiney one second than kicking butt the next. On her last leg she's fighting zombies and making some horribly stupid choices. I almost inclined to say but I won't spoil it. The action is non stop and the descriptions are vivid and not for those with a weak stomach. I'm interested in the character in book 3 because I already like him so I wil move on and listento it.

Survival amongst the evil

This is a good story about surviving the zombies, evil people and chemical warfare. I am excited to read the next book in the series.

What Dirge!

Would you try another book from A.R. Wise and/or Lameece Issaq?

What a disappointment! The dialog was atrocious and nonsensical. The female lead seems challenged. I expected better. Her dialog appears to be that of a grammar school child. No one thinks or talks in the manner given to her. I will not buy a third installment.

Has Deadlocked 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Only from this author/series

What character would you cut from Deadlocked 2?

The female lead.

Any additional comments?

Poorly written. Does not compare to the first volume.
