Publisher's Summary

The Deadland Saga: Book 1: 100 Days in Deadland; Book 2: Deadland's Harvest; Book 3: Deadland Rising (coming late 2014)
The seven deadly sins with a shambling twist.
It has been 100 days since the zombies claimed the world. Cash, along with 42 survivors, have found safety in the secluded and well-guarded Fox National Park. The leaves are changing colors, a beautiful, brutal reminder that winter is coming. As the survivors prepare for freezing months without electricity and not enough food, they learn of massive zombie herds several hundred miles north… and headed their way.
To save the park, Cash must find a place for the survivors to hide from the migrating herds. If Cash and her small band of volunteers don't succeed by winter, the Fox survivors just may become Deadland's Harvest.
Deadland's Harvest is a journey through Dante Alighieri's classic tale on the seven deadly sins... zombie apocalypse style!

seven deadly sins and zombies

100 days ago, zombies consumed most of the living population with the exception of pockets of survivors. Like with most zombie books, there are bandits and evil humans who prey on those not yet eaten by the wandering zombies.

Supplies are scarce; trust is even scarcer. Cash, Klutch and Jayse are the main characters that discover there are herds of zombies – tens of thousands – headed straight toward their home in Fox National Park. In a leap of faith, a fellow colony of survivors is contacted and they generously share the broken and abandoned barges and other boats in their area. The downside is the group must repair them, stock them and move their colony there in under two weeks. Although their plans are set and they have contingency plans – Aukes throws in several twists that have the listener cautioning the characters knowing that things are not as they seem (nothing like yelling “don’t go in there” while driving solo in a car!). Aukes does an excellent job of bringing in the seven deadly sins and using the zombies and their situation to demonstrate them.

Well written, character developments were strong and made one gasp when their situation was revealed. I was confused for a few minutes – it was not apparent, as I did not read book 1) that the zombie apocalypse occurred 100 days ago – so I was struggling to figure out why there were so many shortages. One example of Aukes clever writing and playing on emotions – she has a 10 year old boy with downs syndrome talking down a vengeful father hell bent on revenge. In his innocence, he prevents bloodshed.

Hollie Jackson narrated the book; she did an excellent job with voices and reading concisely. Her energy level helped keep the realness present. There were no production issues.

Love zombies? Love to root for the underdog? This story has it all – highly recommend this audiobook!

Great series!

The Deadland series is excellent so far! I'm looking forward to book 3! Clutch, Cash, and the rest of camp fox have to relocate to avoid massive hoards of zeds coming their way! Of course, the zeds aren't their only problem. Excellent narration by Hollie Jackson! She does a great job with all the characters and emotions throughout the story!
