Summary

After the first wave of outbreaks and infection, the blood has not even had a chance to dry before Shaun and his friends are forced to disobey his father's wishes, to stay where they could be safe at the families' cabin and away from the unknowns of their new bloody apocalyptic world.

The zombies are just as vicious and hungry as in book one and never satisfied.

From their first trip into town the zombie apocalypse war begins, survival and taking care of each other is key.

The search for the cure is America and the world's only hope. The government put out a plea for anyone that might know anything about the spread of death.

The government very quickly figures out that Karen was patient zero at the hospital outbreak. They also find out that Frank Fox is the one responsible for developing the drug. None of them knowing about the backstabbing acts his assistant Rogers had done to him.

While the government waits for help, the military sends in a team of Navy SEALs to try and speed up the process, hoping that they can find the research that they need. The soldiers find the apocalyptic world a bit more dangerous and chaotic than they had expected.

Shaun and his friends run into the SEALs and together they embark on a battle to find the cure. Shaun has his own emotional issues to deal with, as he learns that his dad was the one responsible for it all.

Quickly Becoming a Favorite Series

The Orphans is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. I love how so many of the characters are teens, who are faced with a horrible and scary reality and need to grow up quickly in order to survive. This is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic zombie book that has a strong plot, multiple sub-plots and strong characters, while it is jam packed with action, gore, and suspense. It's a must read for any zompoc fan!

Jack Wallen, Jr. does a great job with the narration. He helps us distinguish between characters, tells the story in a natural way, and the dialogue is spoken realistically.

Great sequel

I love the unveiling of this story and the teens in it. My main issue was the military presence. Why are they such jerks? I get being hardcore in what they do, but I’d think they’d be a little more willing to listen to medical professionals and people who have been through direct battles with the infected already. Even if they happen to be teens.

I will say I’m not sure how much of the military coming across as jerks is the writing vs the narration, this narrator is hard to listen to, I’m holding out for when Eric A Sherman takes over right now. I know the narration will improve greatly then.

Over all the story remains engaging and I plan to continue with the next.

you need Mike Evans in your life

The Orphans is quickly becoming my favorite series. As I always preferred to read a book over listening to one I have found audible is just another way to enjoy The Orphans Surviving The Turned. I have listened to this book at least 6 times already. I never get tired of it and once I got used to Jack Wallen, Jr's voice in my head I never looked back. I cannot praise this series enough !!

Not alone!!

As second books go this was an amazing journey. The orphans get the help they need while also giving help. This book is so good at teaching the value of teamwork in surviving. It also raises the question of what would our military actually do in a situation like that? I love the direction this series is heading. It makes up to the long backstory that happen

Better

I nearly gave up on the first book in this series, but stayed with it and book one paid off at the end. This book picked up where book one ended very nicely. The only issue is it never goes anywhere. The story is enjoyable but in terms of progress, it is sorely lacking.

Exciting!!!1

Would you consider the audio edition of Surviving the Turned to be better than the print version?

Jack Wallen, Jr. is an excellent narrator and i loved his interpretation of the different people in the audio version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Surviving the Turned?

The moment when the Seals sent the information to the General and then were cut off.

Which character – as performed by Jack Wallen, Jr. – was your favorite?

Shaun is the best character, of course. Its like a parent watching his kids grow up, but very quickly due to the circumstances.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

For me it was when Kristy died, was unexpected and had high hopes for Greg on maybe settling with this one!!
