A deadly infection spreads across Europe. The Undead series: a terrifying account of one man desperately struggling to survive this harrowing event day by day.
Part two - days four to six. With a plan to rescue Howie's sister from London, Howie and Dave travel to Salisbury army training barracks to find an armoured personnel carrier that will see them safely through the densely populated and infected towns that lead into the capital.
Howie takes charge of a group of young army recruits they find at the barracks and leads them into battle, killing swathes of the undead. They meet Big Chris, an enigmatic former soldier who is leading a hastily erected commune in London. Joining forces they agree to help each other, going first for valuable medical equipment.
But the cost of rescuing Sarah may be too much. One of their own, Darren, has been turned...it may be the end of everything for which the group has fought.

You have got to be kidding me.
Spoiler alert. The group goes out and fights hundreds of zombies at a time with hand weapons. They get totally drenched in blood every time. Yet a single microscopic drop of spittle from a zombie infects one of them. I know, its a zombie book, go with the flow.
Possible. Not sure.
While the writing quality was fair and narration quite good, the story itself devolved apparently as fast as the 'infection' evolved.
Loved the first book in this series, and the second started out fine, but just became a mess of silly situations and unnecessary risks.
Great voice - great clarity. Thoroughly enjoyable, and will look for books narrated by Dan Morgan.
Too many to list, but here are a few:
Suspension of disbelief is one thing, but the hive mind/ collective intelligence of the 'infection' combined with its ability to evolve and adapt, jumping from species to species, is just too much. As well, Mr. Howie and the crew choosing to engage manually - ending each melee covered in blood, viscera, and brain matter - without any consequence, yet a single bit of spittle that lands on the lips of one of the young soldiers was farcical.
Too much head-hopping; while this can provide perspective, in this case it was just a jumbled mess.
It's a pity - the first in the series was quite good.
