Publisher's Summary

Everything they know is gone. The old world obliterated in less than 48 hours. They soon discover they aren't alone, and other dangers besides the undead lurk in the forests. The new law of the land: kill or be killed.
Dr. Everett Berning and his team seek refuge in the underground lab in the Ozark Mountains. The first week after the collapse of civilization, those who made it out alive struggle against the odds to survive.
Only a handful escaped the devastation in their hometown of Malvern, Arkansas, and they grapple with the new reality. Tired, frightened, and mourning the loss of loved ones, they attempt to regroup and cope with the life-altering changes.
When one suffers a debilitating injury, they are thrust into a tenuous relationship with Dr. Berning's group. Other survivors battle the odds as they flee treacherous cities destroyed by the government and crawling with reanimated corpses.
Unfortunately, they all are about to discover the roaming dead aren't the only threat they face. As the world plummets into darkness, things will never be the same. Ever.

Book 3

New characters are introduced, flesh-eating corpses roam the land, and people start to realize just how screwed they really are. Just when you think it can't possibly get any worse, it does.

The future is not looking bright

As things go, humanity isn't look so good. It looks like we are on the way out. Here we are in book three, and things continue to go downhill for our survivors. Funny thing is, this book is where most other zombie genre styled books would have began. To be honest, I could have satdown with this right here and been just fine jumping into the story. I am not saying that the first two books aren't relevent or don't matter, just that this is powerful enough and good enough that you could start right here and be happy.

The book has a Game of Thrones vibe going for its characters, by that I mean some die, new ones are introduced, and others just go by the wayside waiting to come back later. The good thing is that for the ones we have followed from the beginning we do see growth and development. So, the characters are not stagnant.

There are zombies, oh yes, and it seems we are getting some obligatory military people here too. The fighting, as always is intense and bloody, and one might make the supposition that the dead have no mercy, but he humans completely lack it when they kill. I enjoy books like these because I always expect to examine the author's take on how people will change as society slips away. How long do we hold onto our humanity before succumbing to our baser instincts? How are we when fighting and enemy that is us, and that we realize that we will one day join? Fonatainne gives some pretty good answers to those questions.

Roberts is vocally mesmerizing, and you have to wonder how so beautiful and soothing a voice can detail such deaths! She really manages to bring each character to life, even the dead ones! AS I said before, her vocal range is impressive, and her ability to do male voices is surprisingly powerful and believable. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
