Summary

The outbreak changed everything, but there are some bonds even the undead can’t break. 

It’s been six years since Pete Guinn last saw his sister, Corrie. He always hoped to see her again, but feared she was dead. When an elusive billionaire reveals Corrie is living under an assumed name in the Australian outback, Pete unquestioningly jumps at the chance of a reunion. But you can’t win the lottery without buying a ticket, and billionaires don’t do favours for free. Corrie is in hiding from her old employer, and from the Rosewood Cartel. Now that they’ve both found her, only a miracle can save the two siblings, and what happens in Manhattan can’t be described as miraculous.

What begins as a viral outbreak soon turns into an impossible horror. People are infected and die, only to rise up and continue transmitting the infection. Even as the army is mobilised, the virus spreads beyond the borders of the United States. Nowhere is safe from the living dead.

As Australia is quarantined, the mining town of Broken Hill becomes a transit hub for the relief effort. Tourists are evacuated while civilians are conscripted, Pete and Corrie among them

Together with a bush pilot, a flying doctor, and an outback cop, the struggle to maintain civilisation begins. Supplies run low. Looting is rampant. Laws are forgotten, especially by the cartel who haven’t abandoned their search for Corrie and their quest for revenge.

Set in Broken Hill and beyond as the Australian quarantine begins.

As this audiobook returns to the beginning of the outbreak, it can be considered a good entry point for listeners new to the series.

Unsure

Firstly I have to appligise for the lower review score, but all the other audio books in this series and his other series I have loved and binged listened to so many times, but this one feels like it's a step back, I can see where he's coming from as he has done simular throughout the series, but I just feel this one hasn't hit the mark in my opinion, I hope the next one that comes out is more engaging, but please this is just my feelings on this one, the rest of the books and other series are fantastic,

Enjoyed the story

I enjoyed the story but the only thing I remembered was one of the character's husband was Scott. The Australian pilot. I'm not really sure how this will tie in. I truly love all of Frank Tayell's books but this one was confusing. I think I would have enjoyed more of a story of how Scott left Australia and about his family. The Lisa Kempton connection was a little hard to follow.

Always Check Your Boots For Spiders

Another Tayell zombie sequel that takes place in Australia. It’s actually very interesting. I didn’t notice anything new, but it has enough suspense and it has interesting characters that kept me interested. Additionally, I really liked the narrator. Patrick did a good job varying the voices and he’s soft spoken which really worked well with the material.

The premise is that there is a conspiracy that brought about the zombie apocalypse.
