(The Undead World #3)

There are no Happily Ever Afters in the new Undead World. There are no vacations or time-outs or do-overs. There is only the endless daily grind of living or the shockingly horrific fact of death that hangs over every living creature left on the face of the earth. For some that death lies in a single mistake or a moment of bad luck, or simply in fate.
For others that hard

OK, we are onto book 3 and I thought that the story couldn't get better! Well I was wrong. This one was such a rollercoaster. Loved it!!!

Once again, we have a lot of characters, some old, some new! I find with these kind of books that it's better not to become too attached with a character because the author will usually rip your heart out!! Some of the old faces die in this one and my poor heart!!!

Anyway, we get to see a little more in depth incite of Jillybean, and boy is that little girl one

Holy... !!!

Received by author, through, in exchange for an honest review.

Very little point in throwing the phrase, "this is the best of the series so far." Each successive book in the series just is, and book 1 was epic ZA in every way. Peter Meredith simply is, one of the best ZA, and Post Apocalyptic writers on the scene.
If you've read book 1, then i have very little doubt you won't finish the entire series. It's that good.
What the author delivers is, chaos, colliding forces of good and evil, twists, and totally original characters.

The Outcasts learn that pain goes down to the bone, but love goes deeper.
Working on book 4. There are more stories to be told.

So real

I have cried, laughed, worried all for these seemingly real characters. At one point I wondered if we would get to know other characters. Not disappointed but so hopeful.

Just cant stop them!!!

I'm so happy at how this book turned out there were a few deaths I'm very sad about but sacrifices must be made !!!!

So much

So much heartache. So much love. Jellybean is still my favorite... the book could use some more editing though. Minor errors spell check won't catch, but detracting from the story all the same.

Outcasts in search of Eve.

To some extent this book in the series began to annoy me. Jillybean was just too precocious to be believable. The arrival of Capt. Grey changed things up a bit which helped but Neils bumbling ways also became really annoying and then the author redeemed himself at the end and Ill read the next book. I was really upset with the death if Ram in the second book but there are no happy endings here and only just a touch if hope. Good series for its genre. More of the family

Zombie apocalypse unbound

The third book in this series was no disappointment. Peter Meredith delivers another brutal tale that doesn't fail to captivate and keep you reading. This is by far the best zombie series I have found on Amazon. Jilly is one of the most interesting characters I have found in a book in a long time. A must read series for any zombie love.

This series has me hooked! I was on the fence after book 1 but book 2, especially the character Jillybean, hooked me. Once I finish all 10 books in this series I'll move on to his "Generation Z" series. It is the same world, has some of the same characters but is supposed to be 10 years later. I'll also get every other book that Jillybean is a part of lol. She captured my heart. ...more

Excellent Zombie series

Follow 7 year old Jillybean and her adopted family through the chaos of trying to survive in the zombie apocalypse. It is funny, sad and scary all rolled up in one. Must read. Just start with book one!

The Story Continues

A story of a mother's love. How much would you be willing to endure to save your child. The most engrossing of the series so far!

This writer has a way with words that makes me a sure if what my eyes are reading is really true or not. I also appreciate the well done multi dimensional character development that has me laughing and crying with all of our heroes

I've just done a marathon listen to the first three audiobooks available in the Undead World series.I'd purchased the first two books prior, and was lucky enough to get a free review copy of the third book from the narrator. When a book is in a series, I do prefer to listen to a few in a row, at least three, rather than just reading a new series as it comes.

Note that for some reason the audio version of this book isn't linked to the kindle version, so reviews for it from Amazon when viewed from

Mind blowing. Every time I think something is going to happen, Peter Meredith turns the tables and the plot twists.. This book has so many twists, turns, and curves a pretzel would be envious.

I'm so mad at Sarah. Although getting Eve was the right thing to do I don't agree with how she went about it. Poor Jillybean needed her too. I'm glad that they found Captain Grey. ...more
