Publisher's Summary

Where can you go when the dead are everywhere? Cities have become overrun with legions of the dead, all of them intent on destroying what's left of the living. Trapped inside a fortified skyscraper, a handful of survivors prepare to make their last stand against an unstoppable, undying enemy. With every hour, their chances diminish and their numbers dwindle, while the numbers of the dead can only rise. Because sooner or later, everything dies. And then it comes back, ready to kill.

Very disappointing...

This is really the second in a two book series with 'The Rising' being the first.
I found the first book interesting because it was different from the typical zombie story.
The zombies aren't really zombies but more like a 'Evil Dead' style creatures that possess the bodies of the dead.
I was alright with this since I like the Evil Dead movies and the book had decent character development with characters you cared about. Book one leaves you with a big cliffhanger the almost insures that if you made it to the end of book one, your going to buy book two.
Book two continues to engage with the characters and story.
So what's my problem? The ending is possibly the worst ending I've ever read or heard.
It trashes everything you as a reader has invested in throughout both books.
I've head of sacrificing characters to further the story, but this is ridiculous.

Good Story, Bad Narrator

While the story was good and a good follow-up to The Rising, The narrator was NOT up to the job! It was irritating and just plain unnerving when this deep-voiced man tried to immitate a scared young boy. He also fails to properly emulate characters' emotion that he was going for throughout the story. At times he reads too fast, failing to adaquately pause to facilitate character and scene changes.
