Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in. Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier.

I wasn't expecting much to be honest but it kept me enthralled. It was so well executed that I was hooked and gutted when it was finished.

Hopefully there'll be a follow up

Months into the apocalypse, the zombies show no signs of dying, but it's clear everyone in Sunset Park will die without enough food to outlast the undead. Add in the less-than-sociable new neighbors only blocks away, and the hunt for sustenance has come to feel more like a race than a ramble. Sylvie is happy in her new home with the people who've become like family, though she's still working out how to let them into her heart. Eric wants in, and he wants to find his sister, but he can't do both at the same time.

Loved all the books in this series and the end of the world series. Brilliant, compelling story that had me gripped from the start and blubbering and laughing at different parts. The only series of books that I sometimes rewound a bit just to drag it out a bit!
I can't wait for episode 3, but I'll have to wait a few months so no idea how I'll cope without the brilliant characters that I grew so fond of and who I'll miss until the next time 😒

The days are getting colder, the nights are getting longer, and as Christmas approaches the time is high for some ghostly tales. As an exclusive gift for Audible members, settle down, snuggle up and listen to four chilling ghost stories, read by Simon Callow. Four great stories, one master storyteller - what could be simpler than that?

Best series I've ever bought, they kept me riveted, each one as good as the last. I was gutted when I'd finished them, but then I found the City series so I'm off to listen to those. Well worth a buy

The Sheedy sisters had lived in Stone House for as long as anyone could remember. Set high on the cliffs on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the windswept Atlantic ocean, it was falling into disrepair - until one woman, with a past she needed to forget, breathed new life into the place. Now a hotel, with a big, warm kitchen and log fires, it provides a welcome few can resist. Winnie is generally able to make the best of things until she finds herself on the holiday from hell.
