Publisher's Summary

Christian Hunt and the small band of Camp Holly survivors begin their trek west toward Hoover Dam. There, Doctor Tripp believes she and the refugees that have fortified the dam can develop a cure from Christian's blood. Zombies are an ever-present danger, opportunistic humans threaten their very lives, and scabs are evolving into apex predators, with humans on the menu.
As if the near impossibility of making it past all of these obstacles wasn't enough, Christian strives to search for his family. Did his parents or sister survive? And if they did, are any of them immune like him? His desire to find out what happened to them puts the entire mission in jeopardy. And what he discovers is that knowing is sometimes worse than not knowing.
With new friends, enemies, and dreadful discoveries, the companions will have to pull all stops and endure more pain and hardship than ever before. Christian learns to love, hate, kill, and nurture, all while trying to hold on to some semblance of humanity.
Is the road too dark and perilous for the fellowship to travel? Does Christian find his family? What new horrors will be revealed by the ever evolving Monostrovis Virus? To find answers to these questions and more, join Christian, Fish, Boomer, and the rest of the motley crew on their crusade!

I’m Torn On This One

There is so much here to like, great narration, engaging action sequences, likable and well drawn characters, and some great twists that make this a unique zombie story.

My main criticism is that this is another drawn out series that could have been condensed. However, since everything else worked to create an interesting world, I would recommend this to any zombie aficionado. It was true escapism that I enjoyed.

Only other negative is the stupid choices the main character continues to make. He puts those around him in too much jeopardy. Please show more character growth in future installments.

That did not tickle!

Okay, no spoilers here, but if you have STILL not jumped on this series, you need to. It is very well thought out and the characters have depth. I will say that Christian annoyed me a bit in this installment. I understood his actions, but that does not mean I agreed or supported him.

This is more than your typical zombie fare. Much like many of the video games in the genre, there are a few of the undead that are more than just normal trudging muncher. And once you meet Tickle...well...I'll let you decide.

The biggest strength of this book for me came in the way Christian's sister was "handled". Again...sorry, no spoilers. But seriously, this is my favorite zombie offering of the year so far (and that includes my own stuff).

If you get the audio version, it is an even bigger treat. Joshua Story is sublime, and he handles women's voices so well you will think it is dual-narrated.

long wait but so worth it

Christians fight to retain his humanity and the search for redemption is why i love this genre.
