2013 should just hurry up!!!

I had many issues with this novel, but I'll just mention the main one for me. The Microbiologist in me would love to know how a guy managed to reverse engineer a drug he wasn't familiar with and quantify that drug with no real supplies or lab equipment. All in two to three days.

I've worked in biotech and pharmaceutical. Even if you scratch that lovely quality control and say the hell with sterility - which of course, you would here - it would still be a phenomenal feat to find everything you ne
Original Review:

Fantastic book. As good as the first one in my opinion!

New Review:

I've been looking at this book on my read shelf for a while now and looking at the fact that i had said that it was a 'fantastic book' yet i had only given it 3 out of 5 stars makes me think that I may have really wanted to like the book because I absolutely loved the first one, but i may not have thought as highly of this one.

Looking back the book felt weird compared to the first one with the different atmosphere

I was happy to revisit the lands of "The Other Life" with the Weepers and survivalism and such, but sadly, was even happier to leave it. This installment did not live up to the standard of the first book. This time I found Sherry a whiny selfish thing, with Joshua an insipid limp background teddy bear. Why anyone listened to them this time I do not know. But they do. They seem to agree with our *courageous* duo without so much as a counter-argument.
Anyway. I won't go on. In a way I'm glad that t
Book one started okay...

The Weepers book one was an okay read, & I knocked it out in four hours. It had some editing issues, but the writing style and flow itself wasn't horrible. It had a decent opening plot, a fairly well fleshed female lead, good action, meh world building, and a little sweet PG13 romance blooming. So, I didn't hesitate to continue to book two of the duo, expecting the plot and characters to push forward.

Sadly, book two bombed miserably...

Though the style and flow rema
Well I waited for the release of this book and it was put back a few times but it was well worth the wait. It was just as asmazing as the first one and I was on the edge of my sit at times waiting to see what happened next with Sherry and Joshua. I loved it and although I really wanted to finish it to see what happened, I also wass sad to finish it.
Last part of review first book I finished it and my first thought was; well, I have the second book, why not read it. Maybe it will be better...

Well, it wasn’t.

I hated the characters even more and thought about quit reading several times, but I am a strong headed person and decided to finish it. After I deciding that, I was to stubborn to put the book down. Even if it would have made me crazy. So I kept on going and hoping the end was near. Well the end came 183 pages to late.

Unbelievably good !!
When I initially found out that the publication date for this book was cancelled I could not BELIEVE it and was so gutted!
Was soo thrilled when I discovered it was being released as an ebook! And...after months of waiting and waiting for it to be released...this book definitely did not disappoint!
I absolutely loved The Other Life and i didn't think it possible but The Life Beyond was EVEN better than the first!!!! Insanely good! I was simply hooked!
More action, more danger, more romance and def
I wanted to read this so much that I just went and bought it for my Kindle, omg. You know it's serious when I actually spend money on an e-book! Anyway it was definitely worth the $3.61 :P Bonus points for them going to Vegas as well... the mention of the now parched Bellagio fountains was so vivid to me, having just been there myself and seen those SO many times (usually from a distance although once we happened to be leaving the Bellagio JUST at the right time and it was amazing).

Um, what else

Just like the first book, I literally wasn't able to put this one down. It was so action-packed and full of suspense and everything else that I just loved getting caught up in Sherry's world.

The only thing I didn't agree with was how rushed the ending seemed. I kept expecting something to go wrong at the end but it was too cookie-cutter for my taste.

Otherwise, such an amazing book that I've been waiting so long to read. I really wish more people knew about this series.

Rating: 4.5 stars
so glad this book eventually got published. I found out it would be published today just yesterday. As soon as I woke up I bought the book on my kindle and I've stayed up to finish it.
Just like the first book it fills you with so many different emotions. There's so much action that it's almost impossible to put down.
I found it quite scary in parts as well and I really hope I don't have any nightmares tonight.
the life beyond is not the world it used to be before the rabies. this book focuses on the cure for the weepers.
Amy Mcpherson
I had two problems with this book. One: the author used the "word" alright. Not a word.
The second problem was that although this book was set in the American west (i.e., California) the author uses words like "kerb" and "aubergine." Perhaps the author is British and the editors didn't notice?

Otherwise a pretty good post-apocalyptic series.
So glad that this book was finally published. I really enjoyed the first book and I was dying to know what was going to happen to sherry and her family. The life beyond was a great follow up and it ended the series perfectly.
Isabell Berkowitz
This series is so INTRUIGING! I was so glad "The Life Beyond" was finally published. I read it all in one day. It's not the best book in the entire world, but it was good, and just as good as the first one.
Stephanie Willane
I loved it but felt a little sad when sherry's father, Rachel and Larry died. I am depressed now as I finished it. I really want a third season!!!! But good work.

By far, the first book was better. This had the happy ending it should have. But I thought there was more in the story and characters in the first book.
Brandee Terry
this book was slow and lacked the excitement of the first book.
