Exhausted. Struggling. Surviving. Resolution is the final chapter in the Alaskan Undead Apocalypse saga.
Finding the Whittier tunnel barred, separating the small city from the rest of Alaska and possibly from the undead infection, a flagging sense of hope is restored. Neil has led the dwindling band of survivors, including young Jules and Danny, through all the perils of this new world of the undead, including the relentless elements of the gathering winter season. Seeking sanctuary, Neil’s group is pursued by both the living and the dead, all yearning for their deaths. The survivors fled Anchorage and its streets teeming with flesh-eating zombies, narrowly escaping with their lives and now face dangers along Alaska’s Seward Highway which stretches southward to Seward, Alaska where it ends at the sea. Their options limited and their time running out, Neil and the others find themselves hoping against hope that Whittier has the answers. They must first find their own way into the city and then trust that the infection has not preceded them.
Resolution is the fourth and final installment in the Alaskan Undead Apocalypse series.

Easy and enjoyable read
Slow to warm up, but then it's full steam ahead
One of the things I struggle with when reading multiple books by the same author is a presumed assumption that there will be connections between releases. So I went into Resolution with the hopes that I'd be whisked right back into the Alaskan Undead story and unravel in a linear fashion.
I feared it would be a reluctant read once I realized this was a mix between the original characters a fresh set of tales of the outbreak. But after a short time, I was too engrossed in the vignettes to give it much thought. There's something intriguing in the timeline, as it jumps the track of events between initial outbreak of new characters and still gives glimpses into existing ones.
One of the more successful stories for me is the tale of a cabbie whose fare was bitten prior to hailing the cab. It's tense and fast paced and provides a great amount of depth in characterization.
Another fun perspective was that of couple that met on an online dating site.
"She could guarantee an Alaskan adventure that he wouldn't forget."
Understatement of the decade!
It took me a while to realize there was indeed a connected story to be told, and that the seemingly disjointed vignettes in the beginning were to tie into a bigger story. And after about 20%, the pieces fell into place and I got into rhythm with the story.
I enjoyed the read, but in prefer the format of the first two books. What made those such a standout read was the intimate connection Schubert forged between reader and character. The predominant connection between stories is the setting, and while definitely a cool idea to set it in Alaska, I'd have liked to see the author bring it back more to the earlier story line.
