An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living. This volume follows our band of survivors on their tragic journey in search of shelter. Characters live and die as they brave a treacherous landscape littered with packs of the walking dead.

My Review:

This volume starts off with a flashback from Lori, the main character Rick’s wife. Then picks up right where the first one left off. Something happens with the group and they finally have to decide that it is time to leave their spot whether they like it or not. There is quite a bit of traveling going on in this volume. They take off all in the small RV to find a safe place to stay.

Along the way they meet with some new people and of course with the first volume they end up losing a couple people. That is the thing with zombies. The people you meet usually end up coming and going. When they finally find a perfect neighborhood to stay the night in, they soon find out it isn’t as perfect as it looks.

There is one pretty significant part of the story that got an audible gasp from me. I didn’t see that coming at all. It definitely was a good transition to the next stop on their travels. Again there is some love thrown in to this volume. There is also that speck of hope and normalcy.

Finally they end up at yet another place they would like to try and stay. This is where this volume ends. Some interesting stuff happens in this one but I’m afraid since I’ve had a little break in between reading this one and the third one that I might forget who everyone is and who has already died.

Do I Recommend this Book/Series?

Yes! I can’t wait to see what happens in the third book!

Will I Read the Next Book?

Of Course!
