It's been months since the zombie outbreak took over America, and Alex Duncan is slipping.

She's the leader her father always prepared her to become, but now life is about more than survival...she's the only one who can lead her family into a new future, and the pressure is on to make a new beginning.

Alex is barely keeping her head above water when she's taken by a local gang. The worst of society has come together to create a horrifying place of carnage during the apocalypse, and Alex has been dragged right in the middle of it.

The Duncan family must unite to save Alex. They won't stop until Alex is rescued...or until all of them are dead.

Afterward, the Duncan family will never be the same.

Author Courtney Konstantin creates a dark and thrilling post-apocalyptic novel in Torment. This sci-fi zombie thriller is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat as the bonds of family and the sickness of the human condition is explored.

Fantastic Author

I am listening to the series back to back, I have over 200 books in my library of mostly the same genre and this series is one of my favourites. Also read by Tess Irondale one of my favourite authors.

This book was awful on so many levels.

I really hated this book. I excused the use of a not name for her villain "The Suit" in the first three books, but now the noble lord? She ruined a good series with this crap storyline. It's such a lazy move in the writing. The breakdown of society would create war lords, but this is what was written?

A zombie book lacking in zombies

My husband and I have listened to the whole series that lead up to this book, and we were very disappointed in the direction the author took in this installment. This book barely involved the characters interacting with the undead, and mostly focused on the group of survivors that have assembled over the series. While that would have been ok, the choice to then center the story around a drug dealer who is sex trafficking women (and sometimes going into graphic detail) was just too much. We had enjoyed the series up to this point, but are seriously considering not buying future books by this author because of our disappointment with this one.

This series has been 50/50 for me.

The first book wasn’t great but I was told that they got better. I really liked the second and third books. The writing for Alex just so poor. She’s supposed to be the leader of the group and this family is all highly trained. I understand everyone needs to help working around the compound. With that said Alex leaves Max who is one of the best fighters there to garden while she goes on a multi day scavenging trip. I’m completely fine with this being unrealistic. I also like books with magic, elves, and dragons. However things need to be logical with in the world you have created for these characters.

Next book Please!

Although I enjoyed this book it's my least favorite so far. I couldn't wait for the Noble Lord to be killed so I didn't have to hear Tess Irondale say it anymore.

Good

Good book continuing the series however if I have to hear Noble Lord one more time I’m gonna be sick. Call the dude A@#hole like he is. Otherwise another rollercoaster ride in the apocalypse for the Duncan’s.

Loved it but...

I like the story and the narrator is excellent. That said, was it necessary to call the idiot character "the noble lord"? The repeated reference to "the noble lord" almost ruined the book for me. A name would have worked just as well. "The suit" is bad enough but 2 unnamed characters is just annoying

Another amazing story

Who cares what she names her villains? That’s something to be upset about? That review was crap.
This series is amazing. Don’t pass it up or listen to the trolls who think they are so smart. Buy it!! Worth every penny

A great series

Courtney Konstantin has been able to draw me into her world of the living and the dead. I actually cried when one thing happened in this one.
