Publisher's Summary

Life for Kansas was perfect until the day the world changed. She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It's the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realizes that the world has moved on without her. Only it's not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever. Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles. In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, it is emotional as much as it is horrifyingly gripping.

Pretty awful stuff

Without a doubt the worst audio book I have had the misfortune to listen too. This is like Mills and Boon with zombies, it starts out badly and goes down hill from there. The plot is nonsensical and the characters are superficial cliches. The author seems to have taken all the ingredients from every post apocalyptic/zombie story ever told and just chucked them into the plot in a random fashion.

To be fair I have to say that I am obviously not amongst the intended audience for this audiobook, working on the principle of an infinite universe there must be somebody somewhere who will enjoy this story.
