I was excited to find Sarah Lyons Fleming had released another book in the Until the End realm. I loved the first series and have listened to it multiple times. I must admit I love this book more than any of the three in the original trilogy and novella.
I love how real these characters were, how SLF made them loveable even with their flaws. Sylvie's and Grace's friendship is enviable. The humor between them and Sylvie and Eric is perfect. I never thought a post apocalyptic book could make me laugh out loud so many times, as well as feel fear or sadness.
This book has joined my top 5 books of all times. SLF has a real gift for words. I can't wait for the next book.

Loved it! If you are new to this author, stop! Check out her trilogy + novella, Until The End of The World. Mordacious is a spin off of that series. It is not essential that you read Until the End of the World first to enjoy this book, but I recommend you do.
Do you like zombie / survival stories – but hate to get bogged down with endless tragedy and after tragedy? I love apocalyptic novels, but I am often turned off by plots that take the reader down a dark hole (evil humans, society at its worst, characters spending the entire book trying to find a way out of a hopeless and ugly scenarios). While Fleming’s novels include all these elements, her books center on the dynamics of the survival group. The plot is centered on her characters, their struggles, and growth – that happen to be in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
Fleming wrote the first “Feel Good” Zombie story I have ever read – and it was such a breath of fresh air! That is, when my heart wasn’t racing from fearing for my beloved characters well being and safety.
Narration: I am a narrator snob. I have loved Luke Daniels since “The Druid” series… he does a fine job here. I am new to Therese and thought she was a little better fit for the character she’s playing. The story is told from two points of view, so that is why we get a male and female narrator. When the two characters are together, the narrators get to play off each other, the narration really shines. I saw one negative review of the narration and I honestly don’t know what they are talking about. The narration is great.
Can't wait for the next installment!

I love Sarah Lyons Flemings's other books she wrote about the Zombie Apocalypse and I was so thrilled when I found out that she wrote about Eric's and Maria's journey. (You don't have to read the other books before, to understand the story.) Fleming brings the characters alive and there's never a dull moment. Its funny, full of action and very addictive! I can't wait for the next books in this new series!

It's been so cool to see what happened to the other side of Cassie's family!
I was slightly worried that the city wouldn't live up to the excellence of the 'end of the world ' trilogy but I needn't have worried as this book was just as good! The characters are fantastic and I think she should never stop writing these stories! I could listen forever. The narrators are fantastic as well!
Please hurry with the next one, I'm starting to get withdrawal lol!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I love this book right up to the end. Could do with more protaganists and drama but underneath I really dont want that....This book was all about one girl's fight with herself and anyone who has been through it will love it but also hate it when they recognise themselves. I need to read more to see where it goes, but definitely worth the tears I shed when I saw me in the main charachter....
What did you like best about this story?
The depth of the charchters
What does Luke Daniels and Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I probably would have heard the book in those voices in my mind... they were pretty spot on
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I cried for 45 minutes when Grace told Sylvie she was alone and no one cared if she lived or died....I sobbed
