They said there was no outbreak in Ireland. They lied.
Within a few minutes of the outbreak, Manhattan was overrun by the living dead. Within a few days, the undead had reached every corner of the globe.

There was no evacuation of Northern Ireland, and no quarantine in the Republic. A Royal Naval blockade prevented ships from docking, but they didn’t prevent those who cou

I've missed a few of the more recent instalments of this series, simply because of the 'so many books, so little time' factor, but wanted to catch up with it. Although these books are not stand alones, it was easy enough to get the basic gist of the story threads I've missed, and enjoy the book for itself; might be useful for other readers to know.

I enjoyed Mr Tayell's writing, as ever, and I'm a total post-disaster/danger survival addict, so loved all the detail about what Bill, Kim and their f

The next instalment of Frank Tayell's 'Surviving the Evacuation' continues the story following the plight of survivors of the nuclear wars and zombie plague caused by unscrupulous, self serving politicians. The main character and chronicler of events is Bill, now left stranded with fellow survivor Kim on the southwest coast of Ireland. As part of a small team that left the relative safety of Anglesey in search of food and resources, they have had to overcome a number of betrayals and head north ...more

What can I tell you? The man can write! I used to think I wanted to write but when I read this master of apocalyptic literature I realize that I can only stutter through my keyboard. Wow and wow.
I have to say, since I have made a big deal out of the lack of cursing in his books, that Tayell pulled a "Gone with the Wind" on me in this one. Not really necessary but there nonetheless.

Ugh.... I've been slowly making my way through this series. Perhaps I enjoyed books 7 and 8 as London was a key location. Book 9, set in Ireland, dragged a bit. Yes, the conspiracy theories including Lisa Kempton are interesting, but oh my,.... can we get back to Anglesey and London please!

Still grabbing my attention!

Great book and introduces new characters from Ireland. The conspiracy plot thickens. I'd recommend reading the books beforehand before beginning this one.

This is probably my least favorite of the series so far. Parts felt a bit slow and repetitive compared to the others. But any series with this many books is bound to have one that's kinda meh.

I love this whole series. My only problem is I read them too fast when the next books come out! A must read series if you love zombie stories.

Excellent series.

I chose this rating because I didnt want to stop reading it. I would love if he had the characters in another book 10-20 years later. An update on how the world is. Have the zombies died out? Where is the group now etc. Needs another sequel.

On the journey they come across another small band of survivors as their safe house is being over run by the undead. The group combines and heads north in a boat desperat ...more

Sheer brilliance

If you are a zombie apocalypse nutter, this is the series you need to read. Packed with more detail to the absolute truth of what a zombie apocalypse would be like than any other AZ book you'll ever read. You truly get a feel of how desperate these survivors are without skipping a beat on the thrill ride that this series is.
