Wet. Freezing. Hopeless. As the Alaskan autumn yields itself to the encroaching threat of winter, Neil, Jerry, Meghan, and Emma must fight for themselves and the survival of everyone else in their group, including the children Danny and Jules, against growing masses of flesh-hungry zombies. The undead menace continues to nip at their heels as they retreat down the Seward Highway and venture further into the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness.
The horrors of Anchorage festering with prowling ghouls are behind them, but now new terrors threaten their every step on their arduous trek. The fiends and their appetite for human flesh are not the only thing to fear as the new world they all must navigate continues to challenge the one basic instinct to which they are all beholden: to survive.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. I like this genre, but this book focused too much detail regarding the dead feeding on people. Sort of unnecessary, we get it - they eat people. The killing of characters in the group we follow, are done without much point or plot device added.
Which character – as performed by Daniel May – was your favorite?
Daniel May does a good job, but no one character stands out.
Did Mitigation inspire you to do anything?
Re-consider not finishing this series.

As expected Sean Schubert delivers another gripping gorefest of zombie goodness in this 3rd installment of the "Alaskan Undead series" I am looking forward to reading "Resolution".
This series was supposed to be a trilogy, but the story was so good I see why it was extended. Along the way,we meet some new friends and lose some new friends and old friends, and also see the demise of some of the villains. The author writes in such a way that he makes the reader actually start to care about what happens to the main characters. He gives enough graphic description to whet our appetites without making us lose it. This was another great installment and I can not wait to find out what happens in the next book. This is an author that I will keep a look out for in the future, as well.

I thought the start was kinda cool, you find out what happens to the Dr. Cadwell and another person.
But then there is what I found to be prolonged rambling with not much happening and then suddenly characters start dying. I didn't want those characters to die, but at the same time nothing much was happening with them. I didn't see much of a point of the entire book besides killing off characters which really wasn't done in any profound way.
I found the story very annoying and unsatisfying and I don't like the kid centric focus, because I don't like kids. They are annoying short people.
