Realizing you have a surviving neighbor after the world is overtaken by the undead isn't always a good thing. Unless that neighbor is the grumpy, armed, and retired Green Beret Gilbert Donohue. In that case, finding out you've got a neighbor is a lot like hitting the proverbial jackpot.
Adrian's piecemeal life on campus since "That Day" has been a struggle. Retrieving supplies from local neighborhoods filled with the walking dead has been dangerous for him, but he's stayed alive by being a little smarter than the other survivors, and a lot faster than the roaming, hungry zombies that have overtaken his home town, and the world.
In Alone No More, the second installment in the smash hit series Adrian's Undead Diary, Adrian's life is poised to become even more complicated and dangerous when some familiar faces find their way to ALPA with some less than friendly folks on their tail. For the first time the breadth of Adrian's Apocalypse widens to reveal the death of one of the oldest cities of mankind in one of the most popular of all the AUD short stories: Jerusalem.
Sometimes in the cold of winter, the only thing that can keep you warm is freshly spilled blood. Alone No More is the second entry in the AUD series, and covers Adrian's journal entries from December 3, 2010, through December 27, 2010. Intermingled with his personal diary entries Alone No More also contains five short stories: "One Mistake: The Last Stand of Hall B", "Putting a Name to a Face", "Exodus", "Jerusalem", and "The Chief".

The new and improved Adrian
- The Zombie Specialist
after the first book ended so abruptly, i wanted to see where the story was heading so i downloaded book two. surprisingly, book two is 50% about adrian and 50% vignettes.
the vignettes are really good, especially the opening one, one mistake, the last stand of hall b. all i can say is wow! horror at its best! it's gory, sad, and extremely tragic. it's definitely an emotionally gripping story. that's all i'll say. i don't want to spoil it for you. ok...i'll say one more thing...it would win zombie short story of the year in my book!
putting a name to a face is a story about sabrina, a 40 year old nurse as the dead and those bitten turn into zombies at the hospital.
exodus tells abigail's story during the initial outbreak at the school. in the first book, adrian ran into abigail when he was cleaning the school of zombies. she's the one who decided to drive home.
jerusalem tells the story of kevin whitten, one of adrian's best friends. kevin works for a private military contractor and is part of a protective group for a senator, who is in jerusalem. this vignette is linked to one of adrian's journal entries, and through them, we get more of adrian's background in the military.
the chief tells the police chief's story after his father is bitten by a zombie at moore's gun store.
all of these vignettes add depth to adrian's story and provide some details of what else is going on outside the campus.
the publisher's summary mentions adrian meets gilbert so i'll mention him. he's an old green beret, and thankfully, he's not one of those hard charging, all guns blazing characters. that wouldn't match the story. gilbert is kind of crotchety, but he's wise and deliberate. he's also kind of a mystery, never revealing all of his cards. gilbert is a good addition to the story.
adrian also gets some additional company, but i won't say who. the additional company makes sense- it doesn't feel contrived.
once again the book ends; however, not as abruptly as book one. the book ends at a good place because it nicely sets up the next book.
overall, a good second book- no sophomore slump!
