Ashley Parker was a ordinary woman who was also a “wild card,” immune to the emerging zombie plague, drawn unwillingly into a shadowy paramilitary organization. Having been ambushed in San Francisco, which is now fully engulfed in the zombie plague, Ashley and the wild cards must pursue the enemy to San Diego. There they will discover adark  organization which seeks to weaponize the plague. But that isn't the worst news. The plague itself has gone airborne, making it transferable without physical contact. It cannot be controlled by anyone, so reports of the zombie swarm are coming in from across the United States - and across the world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Technically, Ashley Parker is one of the lucky ones; as a "wild card," she's immune to the zombie virus. That's small comfort though in a world where attacks leave no rest for the weary and where there seems little hope of neutralizing this plague. A mass-market paperback and NOOK Book original.

    Page-Turning Triller

    Picking up where the first book left off, Dana Fredsti continues to build her unique world of wild cards and zombies and expands her multiple storylines to pen another page-turning thriller. The author organically transforms Ashley and Gabriel’s relationship from the constant sniping and bickering in the first novel to a more mature relationship, while maintaining the sexual tension between them. A secondary romance between Simone and Nathan deepens the overarching storyline. The author skillfully develops of the wild cards’ camaraderie, which is tested when they lose some of their own during the zombie battles. Fredsti seamlessly adds an intriguing subplot when Ashley and the wild cards discover there is a traitor in their midst.

    Fully drawn into the author’s world again, I was completely caught up in multiple story arcs right up to the final stunning cliffhanger that left me anxiously awaiting the next novel.

    I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Waiting on book # 3

    I really enjoyed this book. I believe its a great zombie novel. I do have to say I hate how it ends, it just leaves you hanging. I hope the next book comes out soon! Also, I'm pretty sure by this point I kbow who is after Ashley and the rest of the wild cards. There is no real build up to figureout who it is. Overall its a great book to read, just wish they were longer.

    Superdad

    Very good book, only wish it would tell of the wildcards using their powers more. The book hints at them having hyperactive senses but besides their faster healing and smell it dont really talk about speed or how strong they are. Ashley the main wildcard is always out powerd by Gabriel even tho he isnt really a wildcard. And is the walker flu what causes them to die and comes back or is it the vaccine? But still very good story.
