Publisher's Summary

Winter has gone, but the world is no less inhospitable. The survivors of this first winter now face some of the darkest and most soul-wrenching choices thus far. From the outskirts of London to an island refuge in Oregon, small groups struggle to build a new life. Kevin recovers to a realization that shatters his dreams, yet he must stand up and take the role of leader - or die trying. His followers, now largely consisting of juvenile delinquents and society cast-offs, need him. Can he shake loose from his own misery to be their salvation? Billy must decide what sort of life he wants to forge. Has he been following blindly and gone down the wrong path? And has Dr. Zahn finally discovered the mystery of the zombie children?

Warriors come out to play!

It's a great story for any zombie lover. Think; Zombieland meets The Walking Dead. Hilarious tale of survivors because of their smart remarks, as they face their worst fears, human nature and really hard choices. Compared to the first three or four books in the series darkness before Dawn is not as gruesome but definitely shocking, exciting, new and inventive, strange, pulse pounding, nerve racking and will definitely keep you guessing what comes next.

Dear Lovers of Zombie fiction...

Any additional comments?

Dear lovers of zombie fiction,If you have not been keeping up with this series or have not been introduced to this series, you're really missing out.I freely admit that the first book in the series did take a little getting used to for me because I wasn't a huge fan of the narration at first. But I had read some of the books in the series before and wanted to remember them again to be able to continue forward with the series - nothing worse that forgetting everything about what you read in the past and not knowing where you are in the series. So by the second book, I was definitely invested and have been ever since. This series is super good. I mean it takes you on a roller coaster of not just emotions but just STORY and STORYTELLING which is fabulous when you're talking about a long span of books. It's never always predictable and while there is some "hero stuff" and hero like characters at times - that's ok because you can understand that the strong people with strong beliefs would be the people that would be leaders of groups, for as long as they're able to manage it.If you're looking over these reviews because you're not sure if you should give it a try, I encourage you to definitely give the first two a try because if you're not hooked by then, maybe they're not for you- but you're rewarded with a lot of entertainment if you stick with the series. I look forward to the next books in the series! I want to know how Billy is going to get out of his current dilemma and I want to know how Kevin and Aleah and their friends deal with their current situation (I can't give out spoilers but you KNOW what I mean if you've listened to the book.) These books make you want to know what happens next!<br/><br/><br/>-Peli

Another good Dead book

What made the experience of listening to Dead: Darkness Before Dawn the most enjoyable?

The book was good but not top form, started to feel a bit like some was just added for filling rather than story.

Any additional comments?

Please narrator as an English man I have no idea where you get your British accents from please stop they are sooo bad..... Other than that this was another good dead book but i was wondering if the story is running out of ideas. Found it an enjoyable book but lacking any cohesive direction. When top characters were killed before it was wow but how can you keep this up.... wiping out half of a camp of people..... very anti-climatic.<br/>Ended on a cliffhanger of course and will get the next book but hope the story goes on at a bit better pace as this stuttered a bit.
