Welcome back to North Platte where now it's free and liberating Florida is next on their agenda. Krista and Quinn are back in this sequel to Life After The Undead. They have captured Liet and all his cronies and they sit in the jail. Krista is recovering from the bullet Liet put in her shoulder. Florida and The Families aren't happy with the over throw of Liet and the rebels and attempt to kill them and destroy the city. Krista and Quinn figure this is about to happen when the news gets back to Florida so they pack up North Platte and head west. Then low and behold they don't even get out of town good when the city is destroyed.
This book picks right back up with Krista and Quinn and their experiences trying to escape Florida's attack and then trying to liberate and free Florida from The Families.I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. It was great how Sinclair just dropped us off right back at where the first book ended and it started with a boom and never slowed down. Where the first book to me was slow going at the beginning this one was not. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down.

That’s how long Sherry and her family lived in the bunker. Then they ran out of food… I was hooked from the first sentence. Sherry and her father leave the bunker to go in search of food and other survivors. What they find is ash, deserted streets, a decimated city and dead neighbors. Sherry and her father weren’t the only ones hunting though. There were rabies mutated beasts called wheepers. Once human now they feed on the living. Sound a lot like zombies? Yep but these are smart. Some had hair and claws much like an animal. But they hunted, lived in nest and were smart enough to collect “food” for winter.
This book was short but very fast paced. I felt like I was running the entire book. I couldn’t put it down. This was perfect for me because I get bored really easy. If the book starts off slow, I have a hard time staying with it. I loved the counting. It made me want to keep reading. Susanne did a great job of keeping us in suspense. Each chapter left me hanging always wanting to start the next chapter. And the beginning of the next one was a flashback to the good old days before the wheepers.

As soon as I read “flesh eaters” as my readers know, I had to jump at it. I love all things zombie and when presented the opportunity to read a zombie book I cannot say no.
Wisteria, her mother and brother live on the Ilse of Smythe, a small city of people who have survived the Nero disease outbreak. Protected by the military the isle doesn't see many biters. Wisteria works with a group of people who helps track the biters on the Isle. If they find them they “cure” them. Or in other words kill them.
On a tracking mission she is left behind, stranded in zombie infested territory. Wisteria is saved by a mysterious teenager, Bach. He takes her back to his apartment where he lives with and two friends. He is not human and not from Earth. He thinks humans or Terrans are animals. Bach is only on Earth to see the death of Terra (Earth). Soon, Bach realizes Wisteria is a girl from his past. However, she doesn't remember him.
Up until now I was getting a little bored with the whole thing but this is where the book really becomes interesting. They are attacked by a group known as Red Phoenix. After the attack, Wisteria returns to Smythe Island with Bach. Finally, both of them realize they love each other. However, Bach knows they cannot be together because it is not allowed by his people. If they stay together he is placing Wisteria in danger. The ending is the best. It reveals Bach’s heartbreak and betrayal. Also, Wisteria learns about her parent's involvement with Red Phoenix.

The main character has to survive and find a sanctuary away from the undead." Perseverance: A Zombie Tale, is a lot like that but it has definitely got a lot more going for it. It is actioned packed and I don't think there was one minute that I said "Well this is like all the others" and want to put it down. And I have definitely read A LOT of zombie novels.
Right from the beginning James captured my attention. The main character is a Social Studies teacher at a school event and one of his students parents doesn't show up and he goes home with him. They start watching the news and hear weird things going on. The next morning he decides to look out his third story window. And from that point on I wasn't wanting to put this book down. Let's just say it was a good thing he was on the third story. :)
At that moment he had to decide to rescue his girlfriend Ashley and find somewhere safe. Where? Anywhere that these Zombies that resemble those in films, gory, smelly, yucky disgusting human eating zombies were not. After rescuing Ashley (not easily I may add) they make the decision to leave and then make the even harder decision that would haunt them later, to leave others asking for help. His first thought was he had to protect Ashley even if that meant forsaking others that where in trouble.

In the beginning chapters of Life After The Undead, yet another Zombie novel, I was a little apprehensive. I didn't know where this book was going and it started off sounding like every other zombie novel out there, which happens way more than it should. Alas, I pressed on hoping that Pembroke would not let me down..
About halfway through I found out she did not!.
Sometimes a book that begins with writing that is very slow going and mediocre, as it progresses, the story strengthens to become a novel that gets me totally engrossed in it and I can’t put down. That is exactly what Life After The Undead did.
There are zombies in this book but this story deals more with the protagonists and her metamorphosis during the Zompacolyse. The story begins with Krista, a normal, everyday 15 year old teenager, whose life changes in one afternoon. While waiting on the school bus, she witnesses the zombie outbreak that reached her hometown and began “devouring” everyone. After fleeing the town with her parents, they both get killed due to their own stupidity, so Krista thinks. So she’s left on her own in a zombie infested world. She meets up with friends and eventually ends up in North Platte. a town that is being run by a crazy man. Krista meets the love interest Quinn, who helps her attain the knowledge and skills to become the kind of person it takes to survive and become a leader and to help her take back the country. The romance was subtle and sweet. Krista and Quinn quickly became the best of friends.
I love the fact at first Krista is a typical teenager and she ends up a butt kicking zombie slayer. Where once she couldn't do anything for herself, now she is accepting the role of leadership to help get rid of the undead and the living, that want to keep people scared to go out and make a new world. Even though at the beginning I was ready to throw in the towel, this novel did turn out to be a really good zombie book.
Life After The Undead will have your emotions strung high and your pulse quickening as Krista and her friends battle the undead and the living to take back the country.

Most of the zombie books, even though its one of my favorite genres, usually falls in post apocalyptic times, like in The Walking Dead television show. Cities have been destroyed and life has been inalated except for a few survivors, who are having to run and hide from the zombies to keep from being eaten. Corpse Days isn't like that. It's more of a present day "war" going on between us and our enemy, the zombies.
Right from the beginning Jonathon captured my attention. In a normal everyday diner, a family is eating and all of a sudden the dad zeros out, dies and then returns from the dead as a zombie. Stan, one of the main characters, puts him down. Now I can't even imagine in our world now, having this be an every day issue and with these people it is.
The main character is Heather Storm a secret agent working for the government to take out the "mark". The man they think is behind a new type of outbreak that has no cure. Up until now you could be vaccinated to keep from getting the virus that started the original "Corpse Days". But not this new strand. Heather has recruited Stan plus several more guys as a zombie hunting team. Well at least that's what they think they are. :)
I enjoyed this new type of zombie book. When I think of a zombie outbreak it's always in the future and everything has been destroyed. Kind of going back to no electricity and running water. Lol!! But this book gave me a new view of a present day virus causing a zombie outbreak. And you know with all the new types of flu and viruses out there it doesn't seem so far fetched.
Jonathan did a great job of hooking me and reeling me in. There was just enough zombies eating humans and humans killing zombies for me read late into the night and then not want to put it down. I am definitely waiting for the next one to see what Jonathon has in store for Heather and her zombie hunting friends. **I recieved this ebook from the author for a fair and honest review**
