I do have to say book 2 is amazing! Liked it more than book 1.
In this book we get to follow Colin (husband of liv from bk. 1)
Colin knows now that his wife wasn't even close to joking around what happen on the highway bridge.
Colin and couple of friend's of his friend's trying to make it to safety and help Colin find his wife and daughter.
But thing's keep getting tossed their way blocking their path like other dangerous groups that already formed and helping other's and making new home to rebuil
Divided is the second in newbie zombie author Blalock's dark series, Death & Decay, which centers around ordinary people trying to survive the outbreak of the zombies. The first book, which I thought was stellar material, focused on a young wife, Liv, trying to survive the Saturday outbreak with her toddler daughter Ellie strapped on her back and a sledgehammer in her hand. This second book tells the story of Liv's husband, Colin, from Day 1 of the outbreak. I was gifted this book by the author, ...more

Colin is at work when the world falls apart. He has gotten disturbing messages on his phone from his wife, Liv. She's telling him things he doesn't dare to believe until he sees it with his own eyes. Stuck in the city, he and his friends need to find a way to get away from the danger. A bridge divides him from his wife and daughter. Will Colin be able to survive in a world that's full of death? And will his family be safely waiting for him when he does?

Now that the dead are after the living, Col

In Divided book #2 in the Death & Decay series we follow Colin Bennett as he is trying to make his way to his wife Liv and eighteen month old daughter Elli from book #1 whom he hopes has already made it to their apocalyptic go to place.

But of course there are a lot of freaks/zombies in his way not to mention the bridge that he needs to cross that is packed with zombies and bumper to bumper with vehicles. His first order of business is to find away across the Missouri River before he can even be

This is book #2 in the series but it can easily be read as standalone and even without any other books beforehand. And if some readers complain that they knew the outcome because of the ending in book 1, I must admit I harboured the hope that the author turns the wheel somehow.

We are following Colin, husband of Liv from book 1. While book 1 focused on the outbreak, here we have the group dynamics as centre focus.

I was a bit surprised that Colin's group got splattered with gore a few times even

Divided is action-packed with twists and turns, and is written so that readers feel as if they are part of the story.

Though I already knew Colin's outcome from Liv's perspective in Book 1, I had to know what happened up until he reached the farm. I enjoyed seeing Colin struggle with his humanity. Not because I would enjoy seeing someone suffer, but because I feel like many of us would struggle given the same scenarios, and that connected me to his character.

Yes, I hope it would be instinctive

The great story continues. Collin, the husband of Liv from book 1 Devour, has to make his own journey to reach his wife and daughter. This story has lots of new characters that engage the reader emotionally into the story. There are plenty of twists and turns, and action throughout. You will come to love some characters and hate others, and it may even change your mind about a few. If you have read book one, you know the ending of that story, and some of the things that will happen in this story ...more

I feel like I'm the one who's been battling zombies or "freaks" in this case....Whew! What an action-packed read!
Divided is the second book in the Death and Decay series. In this book we follow Colin as he tries to reach Liv and Elli (his wife and daughter...We meet them in the first book, Devour)
If you read the first book (which I highly recommend) them you already know how Coluns' story ends but it is really great to experience his journey. I can't say any more without spoilers.
Sorry not sorr
I can’t rate this book, as I actually only read the first 3 chapters and the last one.

Sadly, I lost interest in it. Not because of the writing, the plot or it’s characters. What I read of it, was actually really good.
But because I knew how it would end.
The “cliffhanger” in book 1 Devour of this series, reveals the ending of this book.

I actually expected that this would be the sequel or more like the joining of Olivia and Wyatt and their upcoming fight for survival.
Well, I guess not.

Great Follow Up

I read Devour first, so I had a pretty good idea of how it would end, but I couldn't help rooting for Colin. The group dynamic was intriguing. Combined with Colin's emotional upheaval, it made for a surprising, but realistic outcome. I'm diving into Officer Ward's book now, book 0.5. Hoping there is more to come. Really hoping Officer Ward finds the Farm.
