Publisher's Summary

Surviving is worse than death....
As the first days of the end of humanity tumble across the city of Las Vegas in the form of an overwhelming viral infection, turning almost everyone into vampire-like creatures, April Tate will find out what it really means to survive. What does it take to make it out alive in a place where everything is but a withered echo of its former self and death does not come willingly?

Glad I've read the rest of the series...

Honestly, the first 2 or three chapters had me thinking "My God she's a brat!" However, since this is a short story AND a prequel, I kept listening... And I realized that April's reactions and attitude are actually very believable for how suddenly the outbreak occurs and how fast it moves.

I really enjoyed the narrator's voice and performance! She really put feeling into it, and her male voices were some of the best I've heard!

Nice short story with decent action, and it does actually add a bit of resonance (see what I did there?!) to the main character. I will now be listening to the original series, so that I can enjoy the story in a whole new way.

Unique

I loved this book.The author did a wonderful job at world building and creating well developed and relatable characters.Alexia Purdy developed a unique story with frightening vampires and a strong young female fighting to survive and protect her loved ones. The narrator did an amazing job portraying the story and has a very pleasant voice.I stayed up late so I could finish this audiobook.I have already downloaded the next book in the series on my audible app to listen to on my lunch break.
