Seriously if you don't check out Among the Living the 1st book of the series, then get Among the Dead by Timothy Long... you will be missing out on a fabulous series! *****Timothy check out last line!!!!****
This Series is based out of Seattle & has several main characters. These are not your usual characters either.
Mike- is a reporter that finds love in book 1 & finds loss as well. In AtD he finds himself in many scary situations but he also finds himself in a great position to get the s

First off, Among the Dead is the sequel (and second in a planned trilogy) to Timothy Long's zombie apocalypse novel Among the Living. If you haven't read that book, this one is going to be hard to get into. Second, I have to admit I didn't love Among the Living. There were things I liked, namely the four main characters, but it wasn't the easiest book to get into. Still, I liked it enough to give Among the Dead a go, and I'm glad I did, as Long shows some real progress here.

In this book, we revi

The first book had an interesting enough set up and was in a location I was familiar with, so I was willing to give the second book in the series a chance in hopes that the writing got better and the story payed off in the ways I hoped it would. I was VERY disappointed.

The writing didn't get better, if anything it got worse. Whole huge sections of the story were filled with characters that did nothing to move the plot or story forward and were killed having had no effect on anything. Characters

What a difference a few years more experience can do for a writer. When I read his first novel Among The Living I was sorely disappointed in Mr. Long's writing and had no intention of reading more work by the man. But I put myself on the waiting list for this the second book when I got out the first and forgot, so when it came available I just decided to read it anyway. They are fast reads. I'm glad I gave Mr. Long a second look because Among The Dead was a vast improvement over his first attemp ...more

Tim Long is one of my favorite authors. He writes about humanity while dealing with the undead. His characters are brazenly different. There are few cliche to ever leave his fingertips at the key board. From a serial killer that is one of the most sympathetic characters you will ever read, to a journalist that is trying to put his life together in the middle of an outbreak. Where in the world did he find a spot in his creative mind to make a drug dealer a hero and a rock star that finds "metal" ...more

Pretty good, I liked it more as it went on. Kate is quite the conundrum; I like her and dislike the "other". She has become one of my favorite characters; quite conflicted to say the least. I wonder if she was the muse for Walking Dead's katana wielding female? There must be another book coming since this one comes to a close as Seattle is "cleansed", but without complete closure. Ah yes, the prologue announces that there is another "Among the Ashes". I look forward to it.

Though not as fresh or as good as the first book the series, it's still a solid entry to the zombie/apocalyptic genre. I wanted to find out what happened to Mike and Kate who at the end of book 1 had arrived at supposed sanctuary of the Seattle sports stadium. This book covers the week after this, with plently of action, and dealing with the consequences of the first book. The ending was pretty sad and shocking.

I really enjoyed this story. The writing style made a really noticeable improvement since the first novel, which made the book much more pleasant to read. The plot and the characters were great. I could have done without being introduced to so many characters that didn't have a real role in the story, but that's just a minor nitpick. I can't wait for the next story to come out.

A good continuation of Among the Living with the main characters returning and now relatively safe within the stadium, but as we all know with zombie books, nothing is ever 100% safe. Finished with a bang, literally, and a rather shocking incident so I'm looking forward to the release of Among the Ashes to see how it all finishes off.

Wondering...

I'm definitely wondering where on earth the story is going to go from where it ended in this one. The story is interesting, but things are really grim and I like a story with a little more hope.

Timothy W. Long has been writing tales and stories since he could hold a crayon and has also read enough books to choke a landfill. He has a fascination with all things zombies, a predilection for weird literature, and a deep-seated need to jot words on paper and thrust them at people.

Tim is the author of the horror novels Beyond the Barriers, Among the Living, and the forthcoming sequel - Among t
