Influenza swept the planet. In months, two billion were dead. In the decimated United States, President Andrew Thomas signed an Executive Order to spray the national food and water supply with a flu vaccine. It spread and mutated up the food chain. The infected craved the flesh of the living and the undead walked the earth.
Overnight, Emily Gray's privileged world was ripped away. From pampered trophy wife to sharpshooter zombie hunter. From an elite address in San Francisco to the outskirts of an East Bay farm town. You never know what event will define you. The apocalypse showed Emily what she was truly capable of doing to survive.
Seth Ripley was a truck driver with simple dreams. Pay off his mortgage, not live paycheck to paycheck, and take care of his mom. The end of the world as he knew it stole all that away. His home and livelihood are gone and the only dream he has left is for his mother to awake from her diabetic coma brought on from the trials and tribulations of getting out of Oakland ahead of the horde of undead.
When surviving day to day is all you ask of life, love seems an unrealistic dream. Who would ever think that something as terrible as the zombie apocalypse could bring Seth and Emily something as wonderful as their other half, their soul mate, their true love?
Now all they have to do is survive death, destruction, and a madman who wants to control what is left of the world they knew.

Good book but...
I would recommend reading the book, but will shy away from recommending the audible version. The narrator was so nasally that it was so distracting. Especially when the main character was a female, the nasally narration just kills any imagination for her.
The closes book that comes to mind would be Z-Burbia, but that is not a fair comparison because the narration and the story fit perfectly in Z-Burbia.
One word, nasally.
No, the story was good enough for me to finish, would have been better if the narrator was a female.
This was such a mix bag of feelings for me. I enjoy all zombies genre especially the one that is not conventional. For instance, Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, love that book and thought the movie was well done. I was hoping this was one of those book, it came close but the narrator really detracted my attention from enjoying the book.
This audiobook was given to me to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!
Maybe my expectations were too high, but it didn't hold my attention. Although it was not as good as I expected, I finished listening to this audiobook.
