Nations collapsed. The undead rose. Some people survived.
Three months after escaping from London, Bill discovers the true extent of the global war that followed the outbreak. Most of the world has been destroyed, but though ruined farmland and abandoned cities are filled with zombies, there are other survivors and there is a safe haven - so he is told - in a small village on the Irish coast.
Before he can go there, he must find and rescue the children. Then he'll have to battle his way through the infected wastelands of England and Wales in hopes that there really is a boat waiting for them. Even then, his journey won't be over.
When he's told of the sanctuary awaiting them, he also discovers that the scientist who created the virus escaped from New York. In order for any of them to ever truly be safe, Bill will have to head north to confront the man, discover the truth behind the outbreak, and finally choose between his old family and his new one.

This is one of my top reads and cannot tell you how nice it is to have a realistic character in a zombie apocalypse plus it's based in the UK.
The best part of this is the answering of many of the stories questions so far and then the fact these answers bring on more questions!
I do enjoy his narrating and the other books in the series have been narrated by him and these are just as good!
Yes! It is hard to put down!
I reached out to the author and he was so kind to reply and have chatted a few times since. I have paid for these books (although he sent me a code for the novella Zombies vs The Living Dead) but the fact he took the time to answer my questions about the story and engages with fans of the book also makes the whole experience 5*
"Does the story end?"
Just with the first 2 books, I sped through this one. I can't give it high enough reviews. The story was great and narration was perfect. But with how it ended, it makes you think the story line for these characters is over. There is a book 4, but it starts at the beginning of the series and tells a different character's story. I have spoken with Mr. Tayell, via social media, and I'm pretty sure he hinted that Bill will be back in book 8! Knowing that my beloved characters will be back, I'm definitely going to continue with the series. Now, I just have to wait for the remaining books to be made into audiobooks.
This is actually a really good series. I enjoyed it even though as an american I didn't understand some of the lingo. However, it was a great read and kept my interest all the way through the three books. Looking forward to continuing the series.
I really enjoyed that the author brought more insight into Bills past and family connections.
The narrarater Tim Bruce did an amazing job and I found him quite pleasing to listen to.The author is quite talented at world building and creating characters I feel connected with.I always reccomend this author to all my fellow fans of the zombie & post apocalyptic genres.I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
"A good read"
If you enjoyed the other books in this series then this one will not disappoint. I was unsure about the series but it grew on me.
