Publisher's Summary

The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. This book follows the journey of Michael Talbot; his wife Tracy; and their three kids, Nicole, Justin, and Travis. Accompanying them are Brendon, Nicole's fiancé and former Wal-Mart door greeter, and Tommy, who may be more than he seems. Together they struggle against a ruthless, relentless enemy that has singled them out above all others.
The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? For, on the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the war-torn countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of: With law and order a long-distant memory, some humans have decided to take any and all matters into their own hands. Can the Talbots come through unscathed, or will they suffer the fate of so many countless millions before them?
It's not just brains versus brain-eaters anymore. And the stakes may be higher than merely life and death, with eternal souls on the line.

More gruesome adventures from the Talbots

Another cracking book from the author! The second installment of the Zombie Fallout series sees the Talbot family and friends escape from Little Turtle, only to find more death and destruction everywhere they go. As they begin their life 'on the run', the characters unfold. You learn more about Mike's life 'pre-zombie' (the MacDonalds anecdote is rather entertaining). And Justin's character takes an interesting, sinister turn: Unsettling to say the least!

For such a gruesome storyline, Mark Tufo's series is a right little rib-ticker! I mainly listen to fantasy and post-apolalyse books so I don't often come across humour. And I certainly wouldn't have thought a gory zombie storyline would be the one that had me chuckling here and there.

Having said that, for the faint hearted - a warning: This book is definitely full of blood and guts. Moreso than the other zombie stories I've read / listened to. Let's just say that it's probably not what I would choose to listen to lull me off to sleep if I wanted a nice, calming, nightmare-free slumber. ;0)

What you do get though, is another great roller-coaster of a ride. Like the first book, I was never bored at any point. The characters are great - especially the loveable Tommy with his pop tarts, and the 'gassy' dog, Henry.

This book gets a big thumbs up from me. I really love Mark Tufo's witty writing and he certainly knows how to keep the pace up. I, for one, look forward to listening to the next book in the series. If you haven't read book one first, do yourself a favour and read that one first - it will make the book that much more enjoyable (and explain a few things too)!
