Very good and different
This was a better & shorter story than the first. It was only 49 Nook Tablet pages long. But, it was worth my time and 99¿. This is the 2nd part in a series of zombie apocalypse tales.
The first book introduced us to the two leading characters, Matt and Sarah. They both had bad childhoods and parents. But, later, they ended up in the same happy and loving foster home. Together, they figured out how to survive the initial onslaught of smart zombies in an old farm house outside of town. The next story happens six months later in part #2.
This is probably how normal and somewhat intelligent people would react to a zombie apocalypse. Matt and Sarah never went to military school or joined the armed forces. They have only their wits and love (and the small armory that they scavenged) to keep them safe. Matt and Sarah are just regular people with a strong will to survive.
Book #2 is written a bit differently than #1. It follows each of the three separate scavenging teams in the city, and the people waiting at home in the farm/safehouse. These independent plot lines finally merge together in the end.
I was dissatisfied because the ending seemed incomplete. It just stops following a major scene. No conclusion or epilogue. I am certain that this series will have a part #3, but that is not an excuse for not finishing this storyline.
Also, there were a few spelling/grammar issues. It did not bother me much.
Otherwise, I liked this story a lot. I would recommend it to people who enjoy a more plot-driven zombie story, rather than just guns & gore. The romance, action, and character development were well balanced and entertaining.
