Beaten and battered in mind and body, the fugitives limp west, unaware that the human world is fading all around them, unaware that the last remnants of the goodness of man is being ground under the heel of evil at every turn.
When confronted with that evil, fight or flight are their dire choices, only Neil’s small group is forced to take on more refugees who come to them

I read the first book in this series only because I stumbled across it and it seemed kinda interesting from the synopsis. By the time I was at the end of the first book I knew I had been sucked in! I honestly love all of the characters. They are all so different yet the same, as they all have the common goal of surviving the apocalypse. Peter Meredith goes into so much detail with each person that you really feel a connection with them. My favorite character is "Jillybean." The series has a lot ...more

I don't usually give books a 5 star rating, but this series continues to get better and better. It has worked its way up to nearly the top of my favorites list, and with more books to come, I don't think I will be disappointed. In the first book of the series, the author began with a "warning" of sorts... Basically said if you get offended easily, don't bother continuing. With that statement, my interest was immediately sparked. Peter Meredith does not hold back on anything in these books and I ...more

One Great Zombie series!

I just finished #4, am already waiting anxiously for #5 due in early 2015. The writer knows how to draw you in and wanting more. The cast of characters is ever changing but at a very slow pace, which gives you time to know them, care for them and as in Zombie stories have them die when least expected, not much time for mourning due to writer keeping a fast pace in this survival story. If you are a fan of George Romero/The walking dead and zombies in general, do yourself a

Shelves: apocalypse, zombie
Aghhhhh! So good! So unfair to make me wait for the next book!

I love this series, though I am wondering when Jillybeans companions will begin to think outside the box. Some of that genius has to start to rub off on atleast one of her companions.

Other than a bit of frustration with the sidekick depression and inability to think outside the box, this book is up to par with the rest of the series.

Full of tense moments and sudden action it is well worth the read. I stared it a couple hours before

I've read many post-apocalyptic/dystopian/zombie holocaust books/series, and the Undead World series is one of the best. The storylines are interesting and mostly unpredictable (by "mostly," I mean, for example, that in many cases you know that Jillybean is going to save the day, but you don't know exactly how she's going to do it), and the characters are unique and varied. Sure, the grammatical errors are a bit irksome, but not so much that I can stop reading. In short, keep up the good work, M ...more

Loved the whole series!!

Never have I run across a better character than Jillybean. And, Ipes! Looking forward to Grey's escape and Colorado. What about Sadie and Eve?

The fourth in this decent zombie series. Things are still quite outlandish, but I like this kind of "fast-food" reading sometimes. Huge cliff-hanger ending. ...more

Another great read in the series.

Meredith doesn't fail in keeping you interested in this series. The compelling group of character never fail to impress. Jilly Bean is a warrior as always. It's hard not to compare her to Jason Bourne in a child's body. It's hard to choose between Grey and her as a favorite character. I enjoy reading both equally. The characters are not the only reason to read this book. The writer doesn't fail to keep you going with his ability to tell the story. I found myself

Jillybean is loose on the world again!

A little Jillybean goes a long way? Not near long enough! I can't wait for Jillybean's next idea, her next adventure, or one of her crazy, but successful, ideas to make everything better. Captain Grey, Neil, Sadie and baby Eve are perfect sidekicks for the troubled 7 year old. I can't wait to see what she does next! Jillybean for President!

The characters are perfect, the action authentic, the storyline is amazing as our unlikeliest hero saves the world. Or a

Well then theres that ....

So I must say when I first started read in this book all I kept thinking is omg I don't care about Deanna I just wanna know what is going on with Sadie and everyone else but as I finished the book I have grown to see she is going to be a helpful character in the books to come !!! So I must say that I'm really looking forward to seeing how this series plays out !!!

Awesome read!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love this series! The author is very talented and has created a world that is chaotic with characters that are so well rounded. You will will love to hate some and hate to live others. I cannot stop reading these books! If this is what you're gotta check them gotta start from the first book!

Completely held hostage by this series!

I can't help myself from devouring each book of this series. Each new character introduced, is Peter Meredith's insidious way of pulling you deeper into his apocalypse, where mild mannered nerds can become leaders, a cute little girl,who will rise to every occasion to keep her new family together. Who needs sleep anyway?

Loved this.

Great story and great characters that you care what happens to. Fast paced and exciting. Love the fact that the lead character is a 7 yr old girl. Jillybean makes this a zombie book with a twist.

Great story of an apocalypse made family. Who knew a 6 year old could be the smartest of them all?!?! Can't wait to see what Jillybean has in store for us in the next book

This author knows how to write. Just finished this book and looking forward to book 5.

Strong character development. Likable/endearing character. Strength to survive and hope.

Don't think it's fluff - Meredith includes the bad with the good. It's a remarkable balance.

This series is fantastic, although each character comes into their own, the hero is the most fun one I’ve read yet.
