The zombie apocalypse rages on. In the small town of Clayfield, Kentucky, survivors attempt to carve out new lives for themselves. There is hope that eventually Clayfield can be secured, but first the undead must be eliminated and law and order must be restored. Unfortunately, the survivors might not ever get to implement their plan. Gangs of looters continue to strike the town and news filters in that something worse could be coming.
In Shane Gregory's sequel to The King of Clayfield, the Canton B virus has continued unchecked, turning the infected into a destructive throng of zombies. The survivors of Clayfield, Kentucky hope their town can return to normal, but the world has become a harsh place, with looters stealing the town's supplies and terrorizing its citizens, and things may be getting worse. Scott Aiello makes Gregory's protagonist a self-possessed hero and leader, even as his town becomes progressively under siege, using his rich and confident tones to create a compelling lead character in the midst of zombie-fueled chaos.

series gets even better!
yes, to all zombie book and dystopian future fans.this story is one of the most realistic depictions of what would happen to people in a small town when civilization is wiped away.
scott's narration is easy on the ears and pulls you into the story. it is easy to distinguish all of the characters he voices. he never stretches nor over reaches. scott's tones match the emotions of the characters.
actually...the title of the book! when you finish listening to the story you realize, on different levels, that "all that i see," is the perfect title for this.
the story gets even better! shane gregory believably crafts scenarios that cause his characters to question who they are becoming in this "new world." yes, there are similarities to characters in other zombie novels, but shane's characters come to life. they have depth of thought and emotion.
the writing is tight and concise yet the author's depictions of the characters and the world around them are wonderfully rendered. add the excellent narration, and you easily get lost in this story.
after i finished listening, i couldn't believe how much happened! to me, this is a short story, coming in at just over 8 hours.this story is action-packed! the author truly knows how to pace the story he's telling. you never get the feeling that the author is rushing. the plot transitions are smooth and believable. nothing feels contrived.
if you liked the first book, then you'll really enjoy how the story continues. if you're hesitant b/c there wasn't a lot of zombie action in the first book, then have no fear! you know "why" the zombies coming and boy do they come. that's the only thing i'll reveal about the plot b/c i don't want to spoil your listening experience!
it's rare when a zombie story can actually leave you feeling "loss."
overall, an excellent follow-up.
