In a broken, barren California, Cass will undergo a harrowing quest to get Ruthie back. Few people trust an outsider, let alone a woman who became a zombie and somehow turned back, but she finds help from an enigmatic outlaw, Smoke. Smoke is her savior, and her safety. For the Beaters are out there. And the humans grip at survival with their trigger fingers. Especially when they learn that she and Ruthie have become the most feared, and desired, of weapons in a brave new world.

Excellent book, perfect narrator.
Though the infected are called "beaters" rather than "zombies" they are close enough to the traditional zombie to satisfy most zombie fans, but different enough to please those who like something a little nontraditional. The book also demonstrates that even after the appocalypse life still goes on, and people are still people. For example, the main character is a recovering adict. The appocalypse doesn't make that go away. It just adds something else to a plate that is already pretty full. There are a few episodes of fighting the beaters, but not nearly as much as some zombie books have. There are times when I really like and sympathize with Cas, and times when I would like to wring her neck. That is what makes a good book, in my opinion, when you feel for, and with the characters. I highly recommend this book, and the two others in the series. Ellen Archer does a phenomenal job with the narration too.
