JILLY-EFFIN-BEAN........this ain't genre fiction.

Peter Meredith has managed to create a character and a world as interesting as any worldbuilder working today. Jellybean transcends the character development that is found in the works of the overwhelming majority of genre fiction writers. Believe me, I have devoured the zombie-based catalog that is out there. There are many outstanding authors working in the field, but there is NOTHING like Jilly. I haven't felt this kind of "need" for a characte

Ok - first off, I'm really bad at reviews. If I was GOOD at them, I'd do it all the time, right? That being said - since this is #5, it's apparent that I've read the others.


These books. I mean - the characters. You love them, and you hate them, and you love hating them. Then there are the ones that will *always* stick with you. Like Jilly Bean. Jilly Bean - I can't say too much, I don't want to give anything away. But man, I want to wrap her up in bubble wrap - and let her plan ALL my wars.

Brilliant Zombie Series

Never really read any zombie genre books until read World War Z, came across this series and Peter Meredith has hooked me. Love the stories, characters and the way certain characters have developed and sadly how some favourite ones have been killed off. Definitely recommend the series on e-book or audio book.

I don't know if 'enchanting' is the correct phrase, but I couldn't put it down. This series is amazing and I am hooked! I absolutely love these books and the author writes the characters so well, you can't help but love them (or hate them.) Excellent!!

Worth reading for Jillybean

Still fighting the River King but Meredith manages to keep it interesting.

Jillybean's story is the best part of the book and I'm hungry to find out what happens to her.

Bit of character development for Neil and Sadie. I'd like to see Neil grow more.

The zombies are no longer terrifying. The characters can walk amongst them now. The action is great but without Jillybean there'd be nothing special in the story.

Will read the next installment to see what she gets up to nex

Awesome read

This is an outstanding read. The characters are well rounded and some are very likable...almost loveable even. Others you will find not so. If you haven't started reading this series yet, you should start with book one or you will be lost. It's a great read and I can't put the series down!

Hail to the king

Meredith brings another chapter to close in the undead world saga. This writer manages to keep you on the edge as these characters survive the harsh new world only by the skin of their teeth. A must read series for any zombie apocalypse book lover.

Ummmmmmm, not sure what to say! JillyBean and Ipes! I don't think I was ready for that one Peter, and I have to admit I am not sure that I am happy with it either. So, don't get me wrong, I am LOVING this series and finding it hard to put down or go back to any of the other books I am reading. it's just, JillyBean!!!!!!! ...more

I'm really enjoying this series but I found this book harder to get through and I know with a series as long as this that its bound to happen I enjoyed watching the characters grow and adapt to there environment !!!

The saga continues

Book 5 continues the story of Jillybean and her friends as they attempt to survive in the Zombie apocalypse. It is a wild ride that grabs you on page 1 and does not let you go until the very end. It is a must read!

“Renegades” is a too long saga of a bunch of inept people taking turns getting captured by the same old bad guys and then rescuing each other—over and over and over.... I may give book #6 a try, but probably not; the action has gotten too tedious.

I'm really loving

I ABSOLUTELY loved everything about this book and its predecessors. Looking forward to the next one. Peter Meredith should really consider turning his books into movies. I'd see EVERY ONE OF THEM!!! One of the best authors in the universe.

Jaw dropping

Epic story, I didn't want it to end. Another book in the series over, yet a broader horizon is waiting. Time to jump in even deeper for more

The journey continues

The zombies are everywhere. The bad guys have all the cards. The good guys are low on ammo, food, and gas. But they have Jillybean.

Jillybean continues to amaze!

Terrific storyline, amazing characters, and, of course Jilliebean and Ipes! Great read. I love it. It's Jilliebean to the rescue again and again. I can't wait to see what she'll do next.

Another good read. This series can be mind blowing at times, and at other times it pisses me off. Plus, it is starting to become too repetitive. I mean, how UNLUCKY and LUCKY can someone be? It seems that they just keep finding a way to get themselves in trouble, and than, they all rely on Jillybean, who is only 7 years old, to get them out of trouble. (In essence, using her!).

I hope this isn't the end.....

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The anticipation I experienced waiting for this book release was well worth it. In this book we get to see the emotional breakdown of our beloved characters we have come to love. Jillybean has the biggest fight of them all and it's an internal battle that she cannot win. The battle for survival is bigger than ever and even though the group sometimes feels that all hope is lost somehow they persevere. The ending really left me

Weakest in the series but I do love these characters

I've enjoyed this series a lot but the last portion of the book jumped the shark for me. A truly strange ending to a series I feel very invested in, up to this point. My curiosity about the characters I've come to love is enough to pick up the next book in the series, but there's some explaining that needs to be done and quickly.

Not sure where this is going.

I was pretty captivated with this book and finished it quickly but am not sure I will be able to make it through the next part of the series. It seems like the author was planning to end the series but then changed his mind. I plan to give the next part a try but I feel if something doesn't change then the plot will have gotten too thin with too much repetition to be worth continuing.

Such a great series...I've been reading since the first book & they keep getting better...seems we are rid of the river king but have run into a , well, nut...anxious to see how they get out of this...poor Jillybean... what a devious well thought out character. Keep writing Mr. Meredith, I for one will be reading...

Just not as good as the rest. Whole book just got kind of nuts and not liking where the character development is all. Oh, and I thought getting bit was a death sentence....guess not (trying not to give any spoilers here) Also, book just got to wordy at the least appropriate times. I'm being generous with 3 stars. ...more

I've been waiting for this book. It did not disappoint. The 2 main characters had darker elements of their personalities appear in this book. I felt the changes were unexpected but,very intriguing...can't wait for more.
