Publisher's Summary

Vanguard Lindsay Rooney has faced the undead hordes of Inferi Scourge and lived to tell the tale, but she has also suffered horrible losses. Like millions of other civilians, she had hoped that The Bastion would recover after a team of modified soldiers eradicated the undead hordes of Inferi Scourge that infested their valley. Yet the city still crumbles around them, along with any chance of survival. Lindsey's growing friendship with Torran MacDonald, an officer with the Science Warfare division, is her only solace as the decline of the city continues.
When food riots fill the streets, martial law is enacted, and the upper echelons of government battle for control of the city, Lindsey is conscripted by her superiors to embark on a dangerous mission into the dead world beyond The Bastion. To add even more complications, Torran and the SWD join the squad. Soon Lindsey realizes that her mission is more than what it seems, and there are secrets that could both destroy The Bastion and take her life.

Moderately bad followup to first book in series

Wow. This author is all over the place. This is the 3rd book of hers I have read. The first one (which was the first book in this series) was actually pretty good - slightly different take on zombies, slightly different world, and female characters who weren't completely useless.

Then I read a book from a different series by her (The First Days) and... well... we will just say that, at that time, I said I would skip this author in the future, it was that bad.

So, that brings us to this book. It is moderately-bad. Not bad-bad, just moderately bad. There is nothing about zombies in it, well, other than they exist and are the reason why any of the characters leave the city, but they do nothing in the story other than once they nearly kill the main character but, don't worry, she is saved by the knight in shining armor... I mean, by the male lead character.

The story, if we can use the word "story" here, consists of a cardboard couple trying to overcome obstacles so they can "be together" and that is about it.

If the first book in this series was an A, this one is a D, that is how different the quality of the storytelling is. I have returned to the realization that I will not be reading any of Frater's works in the future... one good book out of 3 just isn't enough.

There is no detailed sex, no gore and only minimal swearing. The narration is fine.

Not good

I'm sorry but this is probably the worst book I have listened to. I got about half way through before I couldn't listen anymore. I was really trying to give it a chance. The narrator had a really monotone voice which made it worse. There was not much of a storyline either.
