Publisher's Summary

When massive solar flares wipe out the technological infrastructure and kills billions, Rachel Wheeler sets out across the Appalachian Mountain wilderness in search of her notorious grandfather's survival compound.
Rachel is separated from her traveling companions and is captured by Zapheads, violent mutants who are gathering in packs and collecting dead bodies while mimicking human behaviors. Then she undergoes startling changes herself, as her friends are hunted by a rogue military platoon that wants to impose its own law and order in the world of After.
Can Rachel and her fellow survivors make the dangerous journey to Milepost 291 and evade the Zapheads long enough to form a new society and preserve the human race?
Look for the other After books, First Light the Shock, The Echo, Whiteout, Red Scare, and Dying Light. Also look for the spinoff series Zapheads and Next.
Scott Nicholson is the international best-selling author of more than 20 thrillers, including The Red Church, Liquid Fear, Speed Dating with the Dead, Mcfall, and the SOLOM series. His website is AuthorScottNicholson.com.

ANOTHER WINNER!!!!

What did you love best about After: Milepost 291?

I like that it is getting more complex...and as always in a post apocalyptic world it is the other survivors you have to fear!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rachel because she is a survivor and Devontrey because he was really brave!

What about Kevin Clay’s performance did you like?

I like Kevin's performances...he is easy to listen to, and always well polished with no editing mistakes...that is important to me...

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **Rachel is on trouble, she has been hurt, she has lost her traveling companions, and is dying from an infection in her leg...she is found at the last minute by some old acquaintances...and ends up at the zaphead house! She is so sick by now she doesn't realize where she is really at...and a miracle happens..she is saved...but there is a price to pay! In the meantime Devontrey comes across some not so nice survivors and finds Steven...but they are in a very dangerous situation... They eventually find Rachel..but she is different...will she ever be the same again? <br/><br/>GOOD STORY!! I NEED TO GO ON TO THE NEXT ONE ASAP!!!

After

Any additional comments?

Still enjoying the series although this audio book left me a unsatisfied. I felt like all the events were drawn out more than necessary. But it's a good book in the series
