Running. Hiding. Surviving. Neil Jordan and Dr. Caldwell lead the small band of desperate survivors through the hellish undead maelstrom. With their refuge compromised and behind them, Dr. Caldwell and the others including young Jules and Danny place their faith and their lives squarely in Neil’s hands.
Anchorage, once Alaska’s largest city, lay in ruins. Now a threatening maze of death, the city is firmly in the chilling grips of a frightening and expanding zombie horde. With life and death hanging on every decision, Neil tries to navigate the perils as best as he is able. Never far from his mind is the hope that this nightmare has been contained and there still exists a sane world free of infection.
First, they must survive and escape...
In Containment: Alaskan Undead Apocalypse, Book 2, narrated by Daniel May with a baritone always bordering on the edge of suspense, the human-flesh-eating zombies have taken over the ruined city of Anchorage and have claimed the surrounding rugged terrain as their own to wreak havoc over every living thing.
A group of gutsy and resourceful survivors, led by Neil Jordan and Dr. Caldwell, must cross deep into the bloody wreckage of death and despair in an all-or-nothing last chance at finding a place free from the horrific reign of the undead.
A solidly entertaining zombie adventure.

aaarrgghhhh! what happened?!!?
i was excited to pick up this 2nd installment after enjoying the first book. strong start. well the 1st 20 minutes or so. it tells the story of what happened to part of the military. but by the time i finished, yes i finished, i was disappointed.
where's the editor? did a zombie eat his or her brain. it was like...hmmnn...i think i'll try adding this character for a little while. no, i don't like her. so, i'll make her disappear. hmmnn...let's try adding this plot device. no. i'll end it with a shot.
this story was all over the place! 1st, there's this wacko christian lady who's overly judgmental. yes, her character was annoying. she and the cop, ivanof, bond over a warped fundamentalist worldview. you get the feeling she's going to do something really bad, but she doesn't. well...not really. then, she's gone for the rest of the book. it was like a hour filler. whew! i though. maybe i can listen w/o cringing so much.
then, there's this kind of love triangle that forms b/ween neil, megan, and this other guy. ok, kinda interesting. he gets shot by officer ivanof, who's slowly been going insane. boom! that filler ends. neil and megan act pissy toward each other for the rest of the story.
btw, ivanof's slide into madness isn't dramatic or interesting. he sits alone, imagining his daddy.
the rest of the story follows the group running through the city being chased by zombies. the 2 kids, danny and jules, are hardly mentioned. they're quietly playing, sleeping in the other room, or keeping up with the adults as they run through the city. it would've been nice to get some commentary from them, but they're mostly an afterthought.
however, there ws one unique aspect that i haven't come across in any other zombie novels. the group runs across another group of survivors who have been hiding in a bus since the beginning. their story was harrowing! that could be made into an interesting zombie novel by itself. ahhh...i digress. anyway, they are decrepid, stinky, and weak from lack of food, water, and movement. but they can run! sorry, i'm being facetious.
gore: very little compared to the last story.
action: light. lots of running and lots of talking.
sense of dread: non-existent. sooo unlike the 1st book.
zombies: not that threatening.
overall...hard to make it through the book. i had high expectations for the 2nd book, but it fell flat.

why does it end half why through ?
only if you dont have to wait for the next instalment. I actually enjoyed this zombie story, but it ended like the first one with no real ending.
he was a good story teller
no i want a proper ending, I wont get the next one because the author will just do his same old trick to keep the story going then probarly kill everyone off
