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?

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?


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?

- anne "I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!"

Loved it

I love this series. It took a bit to get into because I'm a walking dead fan, but that has nothing to do with these books they take you to a whole different place and that's great. I listened to them back to back now I'm sad it is over. I can not wait to listen to the rest when they become available. The narrator is now my favorite he does a great job. I'm going to look into more of his books. I received these books for my unbiased opinion and that's what I gave.
