Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
Kasey and the gang were held together by a set of rules, their Zombie Plan. It kept them alive through the beginning of the End. But when the chaos faded, they became careless, and Murphy’s Law decided to pay a long-overdue visit.
“We had all made it through those first days of the zombie uprising, fought and bled over hundreds of miles to find each other…scratching and clawing just to keep our heads above water when our Z-Plan went to hell.”
Now the group is broken and scattered with no refuge in sight. Those remaining must make their way across West Virginia in search of those who were stolen from them, fighting not only merciless terrain, but hordes of newly-thawed and ravenous deadheads as well.
A new home is found. New alliances are formed. Then an alarming development presents itself in severe and bloodthirsty fashion. A situation Kasey and the gang never planned for. When the stakes are raised even higher, when many more lives are at risk, can the group re-evaluate everything they thought they knew and survive the unknown?
Elisabeth Rodgers gives an engaging performance of Murphy's Law, the second book in C. Dulaney’s Roads Less Traveled series. She has a silvery voice and a remarkable ability to inhabit different characters and imbue each one with a distinctive speech pattern and tone. Protagonist Kasey’s Zombie Plan has been keeping her alive. She and a group of survivors knew exactly when to do when chaos reigned, but when a slight bit of order is restored, somehow everything goes to pieces. New threats appear. Can they make sense of their present situation and continue to survive?

excellent 2nd book! surpassed my expectations!
kc, jake, and mila charging into a swarm of shambling zombies being chased by the fast zombies. awesome. just awesome.
i must say this title sat in my library for over a month, mostly b/c the 1st book was kind of lackluster. i wasn't thrilled by the direction of the story. i listened to a few other titles then thought that the 3rd book in this series is coming out at the end of the month- 6/25/13. so, i thought it was about time i listened to this book in order to decide if i'd pick up the 3rd book. plus, i was craving for a good zombie story! now, there's no question! i can't wait for the 3rd book to come out.
yes! this 2nd book was that good! i liked it much, much more than the 1st book! now, i'm really hungry for brains...i mean the next part of this story!
the story picks up 4 months after the end of the 1st book. kc, jake, zack, mia, and granny are on the trail of the convicts. at 1st, i wasn't that enthused about them chasing after the convicts, but they quickly run into another group of survivors. after a tense confrontation, this other group of survivors lets kc's group spend the night at their safe house- a prison. yes, it's like the walking dead, but that's a nice comparison, right? oh come on! don't tell me you weren't glued to your t.v. every sunday night at 9 pm when the walking dead was on! i was! and i love me some nfl! ok. i digress...
kc and her group end up at a prison with another group of survivors. the cast of survivors at the prison is a good one. while there are a lot of survivors, the author does a good job managing and juggling them so you know who's who. you don't get lost in the crowd. there's another twist in the story- fast zombies. while not a new idea,
the author uses the concept well, really well! these fast zombies add a new dimension of terror and tension, and the author unleashes them at the right time. i was holding on to my seat and couldn't stop listening! for once in a long time, i wondered how the heck are they gonna get out of this?
the author does a really good job displaying the fear and power of the hoard. there's a lot more violence in this book. there's growth in the main characters, and the new characters are a good addition.
overall, i'm a happy camper after listening to an excellent zombie story since most i've listened to lately have been mediocre. i would've given this 5 stars except for the narration. yes, i still don't like how she does guys, but for once, that's my only caveat!
if you're a zombie fan, listened to the 1st, and wasn't that impressed, then i'd tell you to definitely give this a try. it'll more than make up for that book. if you liked the 1st book, you'll really like this one. if you haven't listened to the 1st book, then you could pick up
this one w/o missing too much.
