Publisher's Summary

From the universe of the Until the End of the World series

Book two of The City Series is here! (Note: The City Series can be heard before or after the Until the End of the World series)

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. If he can do the second one at all - getting into the city was hard enough, getting out may prove impossible.

Despite setbacks - and a couple million zombies - it seems fortune is working in their favor. After all, food, security, and family are extraordinary when just being alive is a notable accomplishment. But fortune can turn on a dime, and all it takes is one misstep.

    "Brilliant"

    Love this series of books. The books are so much more than about Zombies, human nature in the raw and how people live when society breaks down. More please.

    "Great second story"

    I loved the first series and the first book of this series. This second book continues to entertain. I laughed and even cried, and was almost inconsolable at one point! Excellent narration also. Highly recommend.

    "I'm in love with this author and her zombies!"

    After having listened to all of the "Until the End of the World" books, I was thrilled when I found out that Sarah Lyons Fleming was writing a new series that is set in the
    Until the End of the World universe but with diffrent characters (You don't have to have read UTEOTW in order to understand and follow Mordacious).

    Both Mordacious and Peripeteia are wonderfully written,it takes place in NYC and there is never a dull moment and you can't help but fall in love with the characters. I have laughed out loud and sobbed like a baby listening to Peripeteia! It's a must for any Apocalyptic fan, you'd be crazy not to read it!

    Can't wait for book 3!!!

    "Fix the audio!"

    I love the author and I love her books but changing the way the narrators read it for this book was really jarring and it’s subpar to the first book. Keep all the ladies read by Therese and all the men by Luke. The worst was Leo who seemed years different in age depending on who read him. Sylvie and Eric both were not captured well by the opposite genders, it’s like they didn’t even listen to each other’s portrayals. Not sure why it was changed but it was a huge fail and disappointment.

    "Anticipation overwhelmed"

    Easily one of the best zombie series ever written. The author actually takes the time to insert you directly into the relationships and feelings of the stories main characters. You will see what they see and feel as they feel, it is an end of the world scenario like no other. Don’t miss out on this one.

    "Humor, Zombies and Some Romance"

    I was very impressed with the first book in the series, and equally impressed with the second. There was a moment where I was saying to myself, wait .. this is a romance book .. what am I doing listening to a chick lit offering. But throw in some apocalypse adventure and a little humor and deep relationship commitments and it looks like I am on board full throttle.

    The third book in the series has yet to be published so I did a little research on the author and found out there are related books from the same world focusing on the lost sister of Eric Forrest - Cassie. I will now have to find out if her story will match the intensity of the incredible main protagonist, Sylvie in this City Series.

    Eric and Sylvie got some bad news in this book when looking for Cassie. It looked like she did not make it. Now I will find out for sure in the "Until the End of the World" series.

    I will not reveal much of the plot - it is more fun to just let this good book unfold. But, be prepared for some heartbreak - not all of the main characters make it to the end.

    "It was okay!"

    The story itself was decent but Sylvie's character got on my last nerve. I didn't like the way they switched up the narration. In the first book the woman read all the female parts and the man read all the male part which really gets you engaged. This book the female read everything in the Sylvie chapters. If there is a third book I hope they do the narration the way they did in the first on.

    "So Awesome"

    I find that a lot of zombie books focus on the gory zombie kills or being killed by zombies. While this book does have both of those, it also has a fully developed cast of characters, both those that you love and love to hate. The stakes are realistic and so is the plot. Wonderful book. I’m so sad to have to wait to see what happens next.

    "Ready for the next book"

    I hope the next book is written and ready to go, I’m so ready for it! I don’t think that liking or disliking zombies really matter much when listening to this book, actually all the books she’s written. You get so involved with knowing, loving or maybe disliking the characters (not too many to dislike), that you want them to do whatever it takes to survive. As I listened I could picture so much in my mind, Ms Fleming does a awesome job of making everything so real. Hope there’s a new book soon!! This book could be for any YA thru senior...I’m 67yrs old!

    Story
    "Word of the day!! Peripeteia ends with a bang!"

    Peripetieia is the second in the City series. Set in the same universe as the Until the End of the World series. This follows a group of survivors who struggle to remain alive in the harrowing post apocalyptic environment of NYC.
    I love Eric and Sylvie, and their group. This series definitely has elements of Zombie apocalypse, but this series seems to focus a little more on the internal relationships, their reactions to the disaster, and group dynamics than the UTEOTW series, which featured Eric's sister Cassie, and her story.
    Or maybe its just been a while since I read those books, which I loved. But there seems less Zombie action in this book.
    My heart broke many times, and this book ends with a doozie of a cliffhanger. The group suffers terrible losses, and is left in dire, frightening circumstance at the end of the this book. I will be waiting impatiently for the next book.
    Narration was ok, but some changes in narration from the 1st book were distracting. Still good narrators and an enjoyable listen.
