Okay, wow, what a horrible-good ending - emphasis on the horrible. I'm just sitting here stunned. I'm hoping that some of the people were hiding behind the building - that's all I have to say. Well, except UGH!!!

Could not read this book fast enough. Love the family that Cash, Clutch, and Jace have become. When they decided to join Camp Fox it was a huge step. In this book they are trying to stay away from herds of Zombies. They end up asking for help from a huge vacation boat, who later betrays them. There is nobody who you can trust anymore. Finally have to leave the little boat they were staying in when they get attacked by bandits and end up killing their man in charge. Ends with the three of them st ...more

Clichéd crap. Enjoyed the first book but I guess the novelty wore off. The entire storyline is cheesy and convenient, pushed along by characters making ridiculous decisions to feed the story and produce embarrassing, gun ho reactions. Desperately disappointed.

I’m very disappointed with these books.

The MC’s love interest is the most boring character in the story. He shouldn’t even be able to walk, and yet, here he was, running around, killing zombies, tackling bandits, carrying heavy stuff.


Cause he’s damn perfect.

He’s also always right.

The story is mainly about how amazing he is. The zombies and TEOTWAWKI are simply details.

I believe the story would’ve been much better if he had died at the end of the first book. As it stands right now? Boring and

Second in the series (and to understand this book you really need to read book 1) and I loved it just as much as the first. This is the best zombie saga ever! And I generally don’t do zombies so that says a lot. I’ve been drawn into all the characters and I can’t wait to read the third and final in this trilogy.

"100 Days in Deadland" may have ben more of a 3.5 than a 4, but "Deadland's harvest is a solid 4. ----

By this installment Cash has really come into her own and I loved it! For some reason, female protagonists have a tendency to be... obnoxious. (Sorry ladies, but it's true). It seems like there is a fine line between smart and know-it-all, strong and bitchy; contentious and whiney, in love and stupid. Cash is a believable realistic character, but she manage to never cross the annoying line. ----

Rachel never disappoints. Her second installment of the series is full of action from the first chapter again.
Cash is still the tough, Iowa girl, trying to help solve problems in a zombie apocalypse world. Her contribution to the camp is invaluable. She is always there to save the day.
Clutch was broody and a tad less likeable in this book. I understand his frustration to get better and contribute, but his broodiness was slap worthy. Cash should have smacked him around. I also understand they d
I loved the first one, "100 Days In Deadland" and I wasn't too excited to start this one because of how the first ended, but from the very first paragraph, I was shocked, surprised, and excited! I was so shocked I had to put it down for a bit so because I wanted to think how the writer would explain a few things. I'm trying not to give anything away if you haven't read the first one, which you should. It lags in just a couple of spots, but the characters and the story pull you along so quickly t ...more

OMG this second book was awesome and just blew my mind...this is why i love zombie books because of books just like this. There are so many emotions while reading these types of books. Rachel Aukes just stunned me in this last part of the book if you read it you know what I am talking about and was not even recovered from that part and Boom knocked on my ass again and this time unable to speak....WOW! I need to read the third one like yesterday!!!!
I didn't think that this sequel was as successful as the first novel, but I think a trilogy like this is likely to suffer from 'more of the same' syndrome. Still, it was a pleasant read and kept my interest well enough that I'll likely continue on with the next one. The author did a good job of coming up with interesting new scenarios to put her characters in mortal danger which I feel is half the battle in keeping up a good zombie trilogy, since it's such a flooded genre.

Deadland’s Harvest starts off where 100 Days In Deadland left off, with Cash and company doing their best to survive in the wooded park where they have taken up residence. This after the mayhem that closed out the first book and wiped out Camp Fox, the National Guard base where most survivors in the area had migrated to after the dead rose. Clutch is still alive, but working on learning how to walk again after the injuries he suffered in the mayhem at the end of 100DiD. The survivors are fewer, ...more

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

One hundred days have past since Cash met Clutch while the world around them dissolved into a zombie infested nightmare. As the book begins, the two are at Camp Fox, along with forty-two other survivors, as they recover from the injuries they incurred at the end of 100 Days in Deadland. Clutch is struggling to walk again after severely injuring his back. Having previously suffered PTSD while i

ABR's original Deadland’s Harvest audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

100 days ago, zombies consumed most of the living population with the exception of pockets of survivors. Like with most zombie books, there are bandits and evil humans who prey on those not yet eaten by the wandering zombies.

Supplies are scarce; trust is even scarcer. Cash, Klutch and Jayse are the main characters that discover there are herds of zombies – tens of thousands – headed straight tow

Rachel Aukes hits another one out of the park in Deadland’s Harvest, the second book in the Deadland Saga! Picking up where the first book left off, Aukes continues to build upon her post-apocalyptic world, using the seven deadly sins to propel the story, while once again telling it in first-person voice through Cash’s eyes. In order to have the best reader experience, it is best to read the Deadland Saga in order.

I’ll be honest: It’s difficult writing reviews for anything beyond the first book in a series because I don’t want to write something that will spoil it for anyone new to the series. There are so many specific things I’d like to discuss, but instead of giving too many details, I will just tell you why this series is so freaking awesome.

Deadland’s Harvest is rich with character development, which kept me fully engaged from beginning to end. It’s impossible not t

There are books that you force yourself to finish. You have to give yourself a pep talk, promising yourself it will get better, because who wants to waste their time and money for more disappointment? With Deadland’s Harvest by Rachel Aukes, the only pep talk that I had with myself was, “You really have to put this book down sometime.”

Deadland’s Harvest (book 2 of the Deadland Saga) was a grand slam, and I’m looking forward to book 3. Cash, Clutch and Jase are back and they are still learning t

Some of you might remember how much I loved 100 Days in Deadland, the first book in this trilogy. So you can imagine how excited I was when I got a digital copy of Deadland's Harvest for review.

And this book is awesome!

Aukes uses the seven deadly sins as a guideline for her story, but in such a way that it doesn't interfere with your reading pleasure. You can easily identify the sins in each part of the story, but the things that are happening, the action, and zombie mayhem make sure you are tot

Camp Fox is running smoothly, but Clutch is still out of commission from a back injury. According to another surviving faction, the zombies are migrating south and are on a collision course for Cash's home. Camp Fox must make a move to the water, and hide until the horde passes, or rather, hide and hope the horde passes them by.

Rachel Aukes is a woman after my own heart. I find her writing style to be straightforward and clean, she doesn't bore me with any lengthy descriptions and there is very

I want to give this 3 1/2 but my phone hates me today.

I was really looking forward to this continuation of the deadland saga. The first book was great. This book was good. There were a couple things that detract from a higher rating and an overall better book. It seems that the first book was edited better or had more feedback. There are multiple references in this book to the survivors getting all their supplies from Doyle's camp. After the first refresher I didn't need to read it 2 more times

Cash, Clutch, Jase, and the other members of Camp Fox are doing their best to survive. It’s been 100 days since the zeds have taken over the world and there are few groups of humans left unmolested. They’ve learned to be ruthless about any survivors they find lest they let an infected person into their midst. One of the scariest things they’ve seen lately is huge migrating herds of zeds, cutting a swath right toward them. Now they must find a new place for their group to hide from the herds, but ...more

Oh how the Deadland saga is so bitter sweet.

Deadland's Harvest is the sequel to 100 Days In Deadland and my oh my does the story roll onward. Camp Fox, now located in Fox National Park, has settled in comfortably and on their way to surviving the winter. When some other refugees of the zombie apocalypse shows up warning of herds migrating south for the winter, our wonderful entourage of characters have to find a new way to survive, or else die.

3.5 stars, rounding to 4 because the overall story of both books together is just so, so good.

Very good, but something about this wasn't quite as gripping as the first. Often times it felt very rushed and like some stories weren't fleshed out enough. Everyone outside the main trio felt completely expendable. Which essentially they are, but it made caring about these characters impossible and ultimately is what led to me being less invested in this book.

What fun, what frolic, kill or be killed. It's a war story, it's mostly a survival story, unemotional yet emotional, defeating and undefeated. You can't take it with you but you sure as hell can carry it a long way. There was plenty of filler in Deadland's Harvest, characters streaming in and getting killed. There's also plenty of explosions and fires, gunfire exchanges, knifings and machete decapitations, blood-letting and anger and frustration and more killing but not viewed as killing but vie ...more

I was given this book to read in exchange for an honest review.

The author's work paralleling Dante’s “Purgatorio” with zombies, yet again, subtle, was genius. “Deadland's Harvest" picks up after “100 Days in Deadland” and dives right back in as Clutch, Cash and Jase emerged from their own (Hell). Each begin to deal with their own demons both physically and/or mentally as they prepare to take on protecting what was left of Camp Fox. Along with the other survivors they must battle the (migrating h

You might remember when I raved about the first book in this saga and now I am back telling you to read Book 2!

Starting right off from where the last book ended we're back with Cash - have I mentioned that I love her character in the other review enough? They are still fighting against the zombies and making decisions that could change their futures.

I also love Aukes' writing style, she doesn't overwrite with lengthy descriptions and I loved the addition of Benji. My brother has Downs Syndrome

Survival after the zombie outbreak continues for Cash, Crutch, Jase, and Camp Fox. How will the zombies continue to react? How will the humans survive? Can hope be found in a chaotic world?

A vivid, action packed narrative leads characters and readers through daily and long term turmoils, goals, and relationships.

Characters are authentic for their reality, caring, passionate, continue to develop, and manage to maintain a sense of humor.

Overall, a fun read.
