First book was great.
Prepper based survival story.
The author turned it into crappy zombie story, with this follow up story.
Couldn't finish it.
Audible should let us know in the description that this is a zombie type story.
I want my credit back!

I have not read book one, that being said, I feel this book explains just enough that it is not necessary I do. But I want to! This book does leave you wanting book three since there are some story threads that are left hanging.
I thoroughly enjoyed this semi-unique, realistic dystopian story. The interactions between characters are believable and they are developed enough that I felt involved in their stories. There is some intrigue due to some characters with undefined roles and organizations with unclear motives.
There are no zombies and no long chapters describing how the characters are searching for food.
As I've already said, I can't wait to listen to another book by this author (it's waiting in my library right now).
I would love to listen to another book by this narrator. The narrator did a great job voicing each character and portrayed them in all their craziness and sensibility. Thankfully, he also has realistic female voices.

We get to learn more about what is going on in the world bit by bit but not too much. Building on the foundations of the events and character development in the first book Kingdoms of Sorrow continues on with everything that made the first book great the writing and narration are still on form keeping me engaged in the events through the lens of the characters, This story has great characters with that you could believe are real people due to the depths and wonderful voices they each have.
Now whether this book is a good at the first is very much a matter of personal taste. The story moves a bit away from the more down to earth dealing with the end of the world story from the first book upping the ante with larger battles, evil cults, the bioweapon etc. Now all this either means the book is more exciting and interesting or it is less believable and engaging depending on your personal taste. I liked it and I think this series of books would make a good TV show.
I enjoyed listening to this book and can recommend it if you have listened to or read the first book. I can not wait to find out what happens next.
