I loved the first Reanimates book, and I enjoyed the second even more. I have to give a pat on the back to the author for writing a story about decent people trying to survive during the zombie apocalypse. J. Rudolph did a great job creating characters that you really want to thrive.

The first book leaves off with a group of survivors that are forced the leave their homes. The Highway picks up where the first book left off, with Cali and the gang fleeing for their lives. I don't want to give away

*SPOILER ALERT* If you have not yet read the first book in this series, you may wish to stop reading as this review may contain spoilers.

The Highway, book two in J. Rudolph's Reanimates series, begins on the road, immediately following the end of book one, The Complex. Registered nurse, Cali, has just abandoned their not-so-safe apartment building and have taken to the road. If you've read my review of the first book, you'll know that I was not a believer in their plans to head into Vegas. So, I

I loved this story and everything about it. It was very thorough, covering everything that we all secretly plan for (and some not so secretly) when the SHTF. It's like a wonderful how-to guide that covers a lot of potential issues you may have already considered and many others you likely haven't.

The character dynamics are so well written. I can't imagine that was easy with so many people involved but the author did a fantastic job of making you care about the well-being of each and every charac

After being forced out of the relative safety of the complex by a gang of unscrupulous humans the group finds themselves on the road. While on the road they witness the total chaos caused by the virus and decide to head to Idaho hopefully to reunite with Trent's family. Fighting the reanimate hordes, traffic blockages and resupplying they come across other survivors, some join them while others head out on their ...more

As far as the story concept goes, the second book was just as good as the first. Unfortunately, the editing was also just as bad. The formatting and grammar were so distracting that I am not sure if I will read the next book when it comes out.

Great follow-up

This story by Rudolph is not only well written, but engaging and emotional. It's refreshing to read a survival tale not populated by gods!

Goodreads Librari...: My book got attached to another author 3 23 May 05, 2013 04:56PM  
I am J. Rudolph, a 30 something California native who is a bit of a zombie junkie.

I was born in the late 70's, got married in 1996, got into nursing in 2001, a mom in 2002, and wrote my first full length novel in 2012.

My house has been taken over by my obsession over turtles. I have 2 pet turtles added into my family and they are graciously allowing us to live here too.

My debut novel is available
