Summary

Christian Hunt and the small band of Camp Holly survivors begin their trek west toward Hoover Dam. There, Doctor Tripp believes she and the refugees that have fortified the dam can develop a cure from Christian's blood. Zombies are an ever-present danger, opportunistic humans threaten their very lives, and scabs are evolving into apex predators, with humans on the menu.

As if the near impossibility of making it past all of these obstacles wasn't enough, Christian strives to search for his family. Did his parents or sister survive? And if they did, are any of them immune like him? His desire to find out what happened to them puts the entire mission in jeopardy. And what he discovers is that knowing is sometimes worse than not knowing.

With new friends, enemies, and dreadful discoveries, the companions will have to pull all stops and endure more pain and hardship than ever before. Christian learns to love, hate, kill, and nurture, all while trying to hold on to some semblance of humanity.

Is the road too dark and perilous for the fellowship to travel? Does Christian find his family? What new horrors will be revealed by the ever evolving Monostrovis Virus? To find answers to these questions and more, join Christian, Fish, Boomer, and the rest of the motley crew on their crusade!

That did not tickle!

Okay, no spoilers here, but if you have STILL not jumped on this series, you need to. It is very well thought out and the characters have depth. I will say that Christian annoyed me a bit in this installment. I understood his actions, but that does not mean I agreed or supported him.

This is more than your typical zombie fare. Much like many of the video games in the genre, there are a few of the undead that are more than just normal trudging muncher. And once you meet Tickle...well...I'll let you decide.

The biggest strength of this book for me came in the way Christian's sister was "handled". Again...sorry, no spoilers. But seriously, this is my favorite zombie offering of the year so far (and that includes my own stuff).

If you get the audio version, it is an even bigger treat. Joshua Story is sublime, and he handles women's voices so well you will think it is dual-narrated.

Love the series, mixed feelings on the MC.

Overall I love this series. It is fast paced, has interesting zombies with a couple of nice twists and turns on zombie lore. I love the cast of characters and mourned the loss of a couple of well written members of the cast. The action/fight scenes are well written and had me on the edge of my seat. This entry in this series is solidly entertaining.
My only deduction is the MC Christian, he is slightly annoying, constantly making (imo) a lot of TSTL decisions, actions that put other members of the group in danger (I'm sorry but he got a couple of characters killed with his dumb moves), and he is kind of whiney.
But in spite of that, I am still rooting like heck for him to make it to the end game.
A nice EOTWAWKI series for zombie fans. Very enjoyable, and I look forward to the next installment. Joshua Story is a terrific narrator.

I’m Torn On This One

There is so much here to like, great narration, engaging action sequences, likable and well drawn characters, and some great twists that make this a unique zombie story.

My main criticism is that this is another drawn out series that could have been condensed. However, since everything else worked to create an interesting world, I would recommend this to any zombie aficionado. It was true escapism that I enjoyed.

Only other negative is the stupid choices the main character continues to make. He puts those around him in too much jeopardy. Please show more character growth in future installments.

An improvement over the last book

I absolutely loved the first book. To this day it is the only version of a "smart zombie" that I think makes the story better. The second book didn't catch my ear as much as the first, tho. This book definitly improved on that. Great story, perfect narration. I can't wait for the next book.

This series just keeps getting better.

This series is hands down my favorite so far. Every book gets better and better. The end of this one had me in tears ,but is all part of what makes this such a great story. I can't wait for the next one.

Tops the first two.

This book was a roller coaster of action with event after event taking place, It feels like the story is getting faster and faster but really it's just the fact that this book was longer than the first two which was great. Lots of character development in this one and a few new characters introduced. Some more world building and lots of story development. The more the story goes on and the more time the virus has to evolve the more interesting it gets. I will say this book had a few moments where I finally started to question if I really liked the main character or not as he repeatedly talks about growth to survive in this new world and while there is some with his age, upbringing and the fact that he did do some time in the service even as support he sometimes acts like a petulant child. But I guess we as humans do that some times and the truth is most people never really grow up most of us fake it until we believe it. I look forward to not only the rest of the main story but some of the side stories the author has mentioned on youtube if they ever come out because I really want to know more about the characters. There are a few slips in this with the narrator where he used the wrong tone or voice for a line from certain characters where he would use another characters tone or voice but for a book this long he did a great job. If you haven't jumped on this series yet I highly recommend it as each book tops the previous one.

Fabulous Story

This is a wonderful story. I have a difficult time putting it down. The plot is well thought out but what I appreciate the most is the well developed characters which is rare in many books. The characters are distinct, and well defined. It’s a fun, scary and suspenseful story. The narrator does a wonderful job with the many voices. I just wish he would pronounce foliage right.
