Chesser's second novel in the series adds some interesting twists and gives some meaning to comments made in the first book. I have to admit that I am hooked on this series and want to see how the "movie in his mind" ends. It is a good zombie survival series.

This series has been a white knuckle read!! My hands have been tightly gripping my Nook from start to finish. I would suggest this author & series to anyone who loves Zombie, Action/Suspense and/or Apocolypse reads! KUDOS TO Shawn Chesser for an amazing series! He rocks! I'd rate this 10 stars if I could.

I would suggest this author and book to anyone. It is full of zombies, military action and is fast paced. I couldn't put it down. YOU rock Shawn Chesser

Soldier On

Excellent book, as we continue the journey with Cade. As he meets fellow fighters, killing zombies, and trying to rejoin his daughter and wife across the land. Really thrilling.

This was a fast and fun read. Author killing off a lot of characters he introduced, which I didn't expect. I would rate this high for an apocalypse book. Enjoyed it enough to start the next book in the series.

The continuing story of Cade and his search for his family during the zombie apocalypse

Former Special Ops Delta Force soldier Cade Grayson is trying to survive. Zombies are everywhere. The “Omega” virus has turned the dead into the living dead. His wife and daughter are out there somewhere, at least he hopes so. Follow Cade and his ragtag group of survivors in the next story in the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series.

The narration for Soldier on was done by Chris Patton. Patton did the narrat

This 2nd book in the series picked up from the first and it basically continues the storyline. The first quarter of the book definitely contained more action than the first book and then the middle part of the book was utterly slow. It introduced a lot of "side storylines" some of which just seemed rather pointless like "Why was this introduced?" when it didn't lead into anything. It felt like there were a lot of pointless fillers in this book. Much of the dialogue in this book didn't really ser ...more

This is better than the first book. The women are getting some spunk and are much more realistic, and there are many new and interesting characters that are fleshing out well. One big butt - and that is the main character Cade. First, dumb annoying name. Second, he's a jerk. One character in particular seems to bring on his wrath and his crime? Being fat and a civilian. I'm former military and from a military family and I don't know a single soldier that thinks about civilians so negatively. Par ...more

I'm enjoying this book series at the moment while i'm slowly reading them in between other books. Although brilliantly written, I did find this second novel rather dull. I find that it switches to much between the different characters and so it gets confusing at times to what is happening to who. I also find that it goes to much into the military aspects of the whole situation and would like it to focus more on the main characters and the challenges they are facing with the zombies and their new ...more

Soldier On is book two in the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series by Shawn Chesser. I love how the story moves fluidly between books. There is no fear of missing crucial events that would make you scratch your head and ask, "When did that happen?" Shawn is a great story teller. I especially love the details he incorporates into his scenes, and yes, even the gory scenes. His characters are so well developed that your heart goes out to even those who make a cameo. Not too many authors can do th ...more

I really liked this book. I'm on the 2nd one now, and am wondering how Cade will manage to find Brook and Raven. It's very interesting, especially now that SPOLIER* (we know that certain powerful men created this strain to basically take over and rule the US) END SPOLER

Good character development. I like watching Brook become more inventive and take initiative

My son recommended these books to me, so I started with Trudge. Now that I have finished Soldier On, I cant wait to read In Harms Way. Once I started reading this I couldnt put it down. Love the way they are written and keep you interrested and not too wordy or rambling on and on with descriptions. A must read in the zombie and post apocolypse genre.

It is a tale of the zombie apocalypse so of course I enjoyed it. The main character made a couple of idiotic decisions for a tier one operator. After rolling my eyes I read on. Minus these instances I am enjoying this series.
Feb 20, 2013 Nate rated it liked it
this one followed too many people over too little time. It's still good, but the progression was disappointing. The late chapters try to make up for it with huge jumps, but that made them feel less deserved.
Aug 10, 2013 Mad-robot rated it it was ok
This second book continues a disturbing trend from the unusual amount of violence towards children. Sometime they are zombies getting killed, sometimes they are being raped by bikers. It becomes too much to accept after a while.

All in all, way to disturbing.

A very good read!

I am really enjoying this series! I finish one and can't wait to get to the next one. Action is non-stop, characters are believable & diverse, writing is top notch. If you're a fan of the genre you'll like this series.

Book 2 of the series not only continues Cade Grayson's quest but develops the other characters and the story about their journey in in this new scary world in a very believable manner. Good action sequences. Again, leaves you wanting to get on to the next book.

This was a good sequel to the first book. I don't want to loose anyone else because I have become so invested in their survival. The pace was a bit slow for me but it got me to where it needed. Great writing!
Dec 19, 2015 RJ rated it liked it
I followed up with book two in the hopes that it would improve over book one. It did not. The pace is rather choppy and I just couldn't get into the characters. The story is not terrible, just not for me. I'll still give it three.point.five for the effort.

Good read.

The story and characters kept me interested to read more. I'm looking forward to the next book. I am hoping it's as good as this one was.

Ok, this one was better. The writing felt much more relaxed and natural and didn't come off as trying way too hard. Or I got used to it.
