Publisher's Summary

As the dead prey on the living…
The end of the world has come not with a bang or a whimper, but with the guttural snarl of walking corpses hungry for human flesh. The "lucky" survivors flee an unstoppable virus spreading death and societal collapse across the globe.
The living prey on one another….
As the rules of civilization crumble, a lawyer, a pilot, and a nurse become comrades-in-arms in the fight against extinction. But not every enemy wears a rotting face, and anyone who doesn’t have your back just might have your head. Humankind’s twilight is at hand, and these are indeed...dark days.

Long Live Lucullus!

I don't understand some of the harsh negative reviews of part 2, from readers of part 1. It felt to me like a fitting continuation of part 1, and nearly as enjoyable. I think the whole trilogy will probably fit better read as a whole. This is really just the middle portion of a book. So it doesn't feel complete in itself.

And I really hope the negative reviews don't stop them bothering releasing part 3 in English...

I do admit, it wasn't quite as good as part 1, and had issues I feel:
- The whole side story of Prit being accused of a crime was just silly, and poorly handled. I mean the author himself is a lawyer, the character a lawyer, but even though the real culprit was known, nothing was ever really mentioned or done about it. It was kind of used just as a poor contrivance for them getting involved in the military.
- The last chapter. I don't like how the last chapter was left though, and I am going to keep thinking about it until part 3 is released. Part 1 at least ended on a note of hope, not a cliffhanger. I really don't appreciate books ending on cliffhangers...

But, that aside, the rest of the story was great.

Long live Lucullus! And bring on part 3

Outstanding Narration, Decent Story

What made the experience of listening to Dark Days the most enjoyable?

The narrator excelled with the larger cast of multi-cultural characters and with his gift for suspense made a decent story very enjoyable.

Would you recommend Dark Days to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, but probably only as an audiobook. Enjoy the first book, Apocalypse Z, and hope that the third book is better.

Which character – as performed by Nick Podehl – was your favorite?

The Ukrainian.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Totally engrossed to narrative performance.

Any additional comments?

Nick Podehl is on my list of narrators to seek out. I didn't know he performed Patrick Rothfuss's books.

Good storyline

Good characters and interesting plot showing how we don't always need the undead to kill mankind, mankind is good at killing each other, for petty reasons.
