Winter arrives, and with it the Storm. Snow piles up, turning the landscape into a white prison. The survivors of Wrathchild's plague struggle to survive. With loneliness and doubt creeping in, they must choose: stay in isolation with their dwindling resources, or journey south, taking a chance in a realm where the undead walk.

After reading book 1 in this series, The Fall, I simply had to pick this up. And here is what I found...

Here we are introduced to a few new characters allowing us get a broader picture of just how everyone in the world, what few are left, are dealing with life after Wraith Child has taken over. By far my favorite of all the new characters was Corky & the gang. I absolutely loved those rowdy guys. But still my all time favorite characters are Josh & Krya.

Everytime Josh & Kyras' story fluttered a

Dead of Winter: The Rift Book Two by Robert J. Duperre is the chilling second installment in Mr. Duperre’s apocalyptic zombies series. All odds are against the few and scattered survivors, tearing away what little hope they’ve been able to hold onto. Not only are they fighting for their lives against the flesh craving Wraths, but the harsh Winter has set in, making any and all of their efforts near impossible! The book picks up soon after where The Fall left off. Closely following the main chara ...more

Dead of Winter is the second book in the Rift Series (you can see my review of that AMAZING book here) and it picks up essentially where the first one left off: the world as we know it has ended and those dubiously lucky souls who have survived the "Rat Flu" plague that turned humans into monsters must now go about the process of surviving. It's no small task and one has to wonder if the rag tag group of friends and strangers who have bonded together in the previous story are up to the task.

A fantastic continuation of Duperre's Rift series. If you're a zombie fan and don't like this book, there's something seriously wrong with you.

5 solid stars.

These are not stand alone books. Although they contain some new twists on the usual old fashioned Zombie Apocalypse stories, they dragged on too long for my taste and ended in cliff hangers. I can appreciate the author's talent and effort and that there will be many people who love these books. This is surely an engrossing read with great characters and an original story, but, personally, I would have liked the Reader's Digest Condensed Version better.

Much improved. Still a few new character groups but more on existing character groups and more direction and timeline and story information. Getting a better idea of what's going on and where things are going. Too much introduction for my liking but I get that it needs to be done for where it's going to end up.

I could not get into this book. I could not tell where it was going and had to put it down. I will try it again at a different time the story 'flow' is a bit too jagged for me to concentrate on.
