Summary

Raising kids is tough. Keeping them alive as the zombie apocalypse begins is tougher. But that's exactly what stay-at-home mom Karen needs to do: fight fiercely to keep her young daughters safe as her husband Jim battles his way across the city, so they can escape the carnage together. On the worst day of her life, Karen finds that she will do anything to protect her family, and that the line between life and death has teeth.

Brilliant

I have thoroughly enjoyed Karen’s day. Wonderful narration, the children sound so cute & adorable. Breakneck paced with barely a minute to rest and so, so sad.
Very well written with lovable characters. Just ordinary people fighting like lions to survive.

KAREN IS 'EVERY' WOMAN!

Love Karen's strength, resolve and relentless single mindedness to protect her brood at any cost.
Wonder if Jim would have held up us well (all by himself) protecting his two precious daughters as Karen? Hmmm...

The "infected" series is spectacular, & If you are a diehard zombie enthusiast you will be quite pleased with this series.

I didn't know it would be this good

Joseph "Zombie" Zuko is an amazing story teller! I just finished book 2 Karen's First Day. all I can say is WOW! great story telling breaking it down like this is a good way to get a lot of characters built up and making me care about them. I just started book 3 and I'm going to buy book 4 which I see is already available. great job I'm am a fan.

Great second book!

Loved this book! Loved the switch to a female narrator due to the book being from a females prospective. The characters continued in their development and just sucked me in further. Both the author and narrarator did a fantastic job. I finished this book in a day and I work 45 -50 hours a week. Yes, i got very little sleep! Great book to add to your library but then your probably already sucked in as well because you have listened to the first book more than likely!

Really enjoyed this zombie story!

I really enjoyed this! This is the second book in the series. I enjoyed this even better than the first one. I immediately started the third upon completing book two.

Intense and still devastating Zompoc thrill ride

The other half of this family’s story and journey through the zombie apocalypse. And intense through ride of what could actually happen in a zombie apocalypse. Zombies kill you but humans are always more evil and heartless and will try and destroy you before all else get you. Awesome story check it out

loved this

This second Book by Mr. Zuko was just as action packed as the first. Maybe even a little more intense because there was a woman with two small children trying to survive. Loved every minute of it.

Better than book 1!

I loved Karen's view point better than Jim's! This book tells of Karen's first day, along with Cliff and his family. The narration was perfect. I can't say enough good things about book 2! I have already started book 3.
