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!

This book was provided free in exchange for a review. I listened to book one and two of this series. The two books followed seamlessly across the story line. It was good at detailing that not all good guys would survive such a situation and the problems people would face and the challenge to keep any type of community together. The main characters were not perfect but managed to continue and mostly make it happen. The book was left with a real cliff hanger at the end, so I hope there is in fact more books in this series. Very enjoyable and believable. The narrator did an outstanding job on the different characters and even put a good deal of emotion into the performance.

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.
