Publisher's Summary

Eric Riordan doesn't look for trouble, but trouble has a way of finding him. Two years have passed since the Outbreak, and after joining forces with his friend Gabriel, he has managed to stay alive by fleeing to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains.
With supplies running low, and enemies gathering, the two survivors are forced to begin their journey west to Colorado. Along the way they will find unexpected allies, reunite with old friends, and make deadly new enemies. As difficult as life has been, the most dangerous times lie ahead. Nothing is ever easy at the end of the world.

The Thing About Zombies and Physics

Would you consider the audio edition of This Shattered Land to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrator does a splendid job. The story flows well enough that the listener stays engaged.

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


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


Any additional comments?

There is a general problem with most zombie, walking dead, infected or whatever, stories. The laws of physics are such that the energy expended by the creatures has to come from somewhere. If it is from what they can catch and eat, then when their hunting stops showing results, they will weaken and be unable to hunt. They will run out of energy unless they can consume whatever mass their bodies retain to provide energy for movement. Even so, they are on the wrong side of the energy curve. Factor in the ravages from maggots/flies, they will run out of juice and cease to be able to move. There is no way that zombies are not on their own doomsday clock. This rarely comes up in this genre and does not in this series. Other than that, this is a great series.
