Summary

Time is running out for the star crossed lovers, the teenagers thrown together by fate who were supposed to be trying to kill each other. The undead infection is spreading in Scarlet, slowly worming its way through her body. As they race across the wastelands to the last outpost with advanced medical facilities, their fathers go to war. The cult begins its advance on the free states headquarters and Casey's ruthless cannibals are gathering their forces for their own attack. No one gets to sit this one out. Everyone fights.

Awesome from beginning to end.

I've absolutely loved this series, I didn't want it to end! Great writing from the author and excellent reading from the narrator 10 out of 10

Does not disappoint! Fantastic.

I don't want to give away any spoilers but just to say I love this book. It's been a nuisance really in the sense that I've literally not been able to put it down. It really drew me in and kept me guessing until the end. If you like the previous books I highly recommend this - I don't think you'll be disappointed. It ties up a lot of the sub plots nicely.

Yet another 5 star awesome zombie road

David has done it again, yet another awesome book! Action packed, brilliantly written with twists and turns all the way through. These are without a doubt the best zombie books ever and i really hope there will be another book to enjoy soon :-)

Ending left questions..

Good till near the end... Then just seemed to get off kilter. Disappointed with it. I'd explain but don't want to give spoilers here but just didn't make sense to me.

Disappointed

I loved all the other books in the series, but was really let down by this one. The ending was terrible. Everything ended abruptly, and the concept of what happened to the Road Angel was just down right dumb.

Good till it was awful

Most of the book progresses as you might expect from the series so far. The ending however is just cringe worthy. If I'd known the series was coming here I wouldn't have bothered.

An extraordinary adventure in the zombie apocalypse

An extraordinary adventure to the zombie apocalypse. A wonderful cast of characters and personalities that come to life full of emotion and action. From the beginning of the series to this book you will never be disappointed. The world goes to crap and a group of truckers make their way through the apocalypse to try and rebuild. There is so much more than that. You have zombies crazy religious cult of flesh eating cannibals and no those aren’t the zombies. And just evil people running around. Then you have to worry about the zombies as well. It is a tale of good versus evil and it is your goal to find out which succeeds. Enjoy

Great Series

The only reason I gave it a 3 on story is it could have ended better, tie loose ends up. We read because we want to see either a happy, sad or horrible ending but we want a clear and concise ending this ending im sorry to say sucked!!! Could you be planning another book to wrap it up hmmm. Great Series otherwise Thank You!

Almost didn't get this book, glad I did.

Some of the bad reviews almost made me not get this book. Most of the bad reviews were about the ending. Glad I didn't listen and gave it a chance. The book is enjoyable just like the previous books in the series. It does have a crazy ended but not a bad one.

Amazing!

I love this series! I’m writing this after finishing the first 7 books. It’s absolutely one of my all time favorite series. Do yourself a favor and pick up this series! You will not regret it and I bet you’ll be recommending it to everyone! Believable amazing characters. Great plot! Can’t wait to dive in to the Feral children series now too! Also time travel and zombies.... I’m in heaven! That’s my 2 favorite things! Narration by Eric Sherman was spectacular! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review
