I enjoyed this series, TW decided to keep it to 12 books which is a shame as it felt like there was a lot more these storylines could have given us. He doesn’t shy away from the horror of what could happen doesn’t go too far into realms you don’t want to wander into (like the Zombie Fallout series by Tufo) and he wasn't afraid to kill people off when their time was done.
I'm enjoying the children storyline, different and original. Although a real consitant sexist streak is settling in (which lost it a star) which is odd as there are stronger female characters 'doing' the action in the story but it seems like all the men think in a very sexist way, I guess the author thinks this is what would happen if there was a zombie apoclpse and maybe it would but as a woman it gets a bit boring hearing this over and over from every male character, that said there is interesting variety in how women are written which makes it all the more disappointing.
FYI typical bad British accents, so nothing new!
I enjoyed the spinoffs too, the 'Dead snapshots' are great, I like the attention to detail (the English one was pretty much on point re: lingo and culture) and I'm enjoying the new Dead series.
Where does DEAD: Blood and Betrayal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
come to realise the loss and terrible deaths are sort of skimmed over so the story can advance .
What does Andrew McFerrin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
my imagination is pretty good when I read but he gives even more life to characters
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
So, by this point in the series, it should be no surprise that Andrew McFerrin is awesome and TW Brown writes great zombie fiction. This is the second to last book and is as consistently good as the last 10. I'm just sad there is only one book left in this series. Oh well, bring on the last book!

If you could sum up DEAD: Blood and Betrayal in three words, what would they be?
Death, Double-crossing, help!!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Since my favorites mostly are with the Dearly Departed, i would have to say Talia is one of my favorites. She is at the stage of knowing enough to get out of some situations but not knowing quite enough to stay out of even more.
Which scene was your favorite?
i liked the whole rescuing Talia part. It showed her a whole new appreciation and understanding of her community and who she grew up thinking she knew
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The end of the book... how could you leave it hanging that way? lol!
Kate going a bit crazy made me feel sorry for her a little bit, but she has fallen out of my "good graces" with her stunts lately
Any additional comments?
Kate i feel is my getting to be my least favorite. I liked how she was with Kevin and how they balanced each other out, but now Kate is becoming more like the "leaders" i don't care for at all by walking into a place that is and has been working for years and years and not liking one thing so try to shake everything up.... in the past all this type of thing has done is bring on the downfall of that town or society, it has never improved or made it stronger... but i guess there could be a first for everything... Can't wait to read the next book and find out where this all leads...
