Summary

What will you do to save your family when the zombie apocalypse starts? Because Mike Fletcher will do anything, and that's his greatest weapon.

From the multi-award-winning author Christopher Artinian comes the second book of the post-apocalyptic zombie series, Safe Haven.

A virus has swept across the planet turning people into flesh-craving zombies. The UK and Ireland were the last to fall, but now the virus has won. Cities are infested with the undead. To stay is to die. 

Having fled Leeds, Mike Fletcher and his family thought they had found a safe haven in the island village of Candleton. But their peace was fleeting, and others want what they have. Now, they find themselves in a fresh fight for their lives, battling armies of vicious raiders and fast, relentless zombies. 

Horror and tyranny reign in this new world, and a war is looming on the horizon that only the bravest will choose to fight. The time has come to take a stand. The time has come to find a new kind of hero.

Wow!

How does Mike keep coming up with these ideas?! What will he come up with next to keep his friends and family safe? And will Emma ever get that stick out of her a%£s? I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was next, and desperate to start the next book to keep the story going! I need more!

another great instalment

the second book in the series starts where the first left on and carries on the story of the family and friends and their battle against the rams and other humans. the story is action packed and goes at a good pace.
There was one point where I jumped up and shouted 'oh no' which earned me a funny look from my family. I won't give that story plot away but my heart was racing.
the narration was superb much better than the first book, although I did at first wonder what a 'huddle' was that they kept picking up, only kidding, its just the way the narrator pronounces holdall!
Great series can't wait for the next one.

Realm of raiders

Ooh the stage is set now , I love how we get to traverse through Britain (with Rams on our tail). I actually looked up some of these places to get an idea of their travels and having a husband of Scottish descent it has pulled me in. This is a sign of a great author I am enjoying this series immensely thank you Mr Artinian you may continue your excellent work

Love reading this series so much and enjoying the narration on Audible just as much. Kim really brings the characters to life in her superb narration. The series really is a must read for the zombie apocalypse fan and I can’t rate the audible books highly enough either. Can’t wait to hear the next instalment in this brilliant series

Loved this book & all the better for Kim Bretton.
I think I’m falling in love with Mike, so brave, honourable & vulnerable too. The problem I have is I don’t want to lose any of these last men/women standing & with the future looking quite grim I know I’m going to be upset. Won’t stop me starting book 3 right now though. Need to get the rest on to audible quickly for me though.

Fantastic 2nd Safe Haven Installment

I really enjoyed the first in the series of this exciting Zombie series and the second book doesn't disappoint at all, in fact it is even better!
As with the first book the action kicks in straight away and the pace is frantic all the way through. There are plenty of twists and turns as well as new characters to get to know.
The book is further enhanced by the excellent narration of Kim Bretton who is just perfect for this British based Zombie fest, she really brings the story to life with her excellent range of voices.
I highly recommend this audio book to everyone without hesitation.
I received this book in exchange for an unbiased and objective review.

Great zombie series!

Ok I LOVE that the MC recognizes that you must save the well educated librarians as they are needed to help rebuild society! This has been a great series so far. A kick ass MC. Hordes of undead, nasty humans that you love to hate, twists, awesome battles, edge of the seat moments of life and death. And all taking place in the UK and Scotland. Nice to see zombies that aren’t all here in the states. Get it and enjoy but get the ones before it first.

don't mess with my family

Mike continues to try to get his family, new and birth, to Gran's.. As in anyone's life it isn't easy but not even the RAMS will deter him. Oh and heaven help the humans who try to harm his loved ones. This wonderfully written story reminds us that we never really know what we are capable of until pushed too far. I loved the little glimmer of crossover of the End of Everything world as well. Also as should he expected in the z9mbie/RAMS world never get too comfortable....trouble is probably around the next corner.

Good Continuation of the series.

Safe Haven Realm of the Raiders Book 2 is a good continuation to this Zombie apocalypse series. Mike and crew are back again(this time with a different narrator, Kim Bretton, who does a great job). There is a ton more action, conflict and death in this book. Mike is still a badass, Men want to be him and woman want to be with him, There are some great new characters and villains and some characters that you aren't sure which is which.

The world is a dangerous one and not just because of the Zombies, one of the biggest dangers is the other Humans and now they even have to worry about rats! The story does a good job of never really letting your or the characters feel completely safe or secure and always with their head on a swivel, especially in Mike's case.

As I said there is a new narrator for this book in Kim Bretton and overall I think she did an excellent job. I would of probably given her 5 stars but I was not a fan of the voice that she used for Lucy, other than that I think she was spot on with the Male and female characters.

If you enjoyed the first book in the series I would definitely recommend this one as it is more of the same(in a good way) and has quite a few twists thrown in. I am excited to read the next book in the series.

Everything you’d expect in a continuation

This story keeps up right after the first book and doesn’t disappoint. It’s entertaining and makes the listener feel like the choices/actions the characters make are what actual people would choose to do or be like. Great listen!

Awesome

Awesome book. Such a fantastic story and great characters. My only complaint is the narrator, not that Bretton isn’t a great narrator but once I’m use to 1 narrator and how they make the characters sound it takes me awhile to get use to someone else.

Just keeps getting better

First, Christopher and Kim are an amazing team. No I’m not talking about characters but the author and narrator
Second, wow just wow! So much action. Half we have a tiny bit of hapoy in this book, but so much sad as well.
Third, I like how the worlds from The end of Everything and this series will be kind of crossing a bit, even if it’s just from the villains.
This guy Fry needs to die ASAP. He’s like a damn cockroach!
