Billions died and rose again, hungry for human flesh. When the nightmare reached Sheriff Danielle Adelman's small mountain community of Forest Peak, California, it was too late for warnings . . . forcing her to lead a small group of survivors out of hell, all the while seeking her estranged runaway sister at any cost.

Two years later, the undead have evolved.

Overview

Billions died and rose again, hungry for human flesh. When the nightmare reached Sheriff Danielle Adelman's small mountain community of Forest Peak, California, it was too late for warnings . . . forcing her to lead a small group of survivors out of hell, all the while seeking her estranged runaway sister at any cost.

Two years later, the undead have evolved. Now, besides the shambling, mindless cannibals are the hunters—cunning and fast, like wolves—and the thinkers, whose shocking inteléligence and single-minded predatory obsession may mean the downfall of what's left of humanity. As Danny leads a ragtag band of the living through the remnants of the American Midwest, rumors arise of a safe place somewhere east. But the closer they get to it, the more certain Danny becomes that something evil waits for them at the end of the line. With an unspeakable secret riding beside her and an unbreakable promise made to a small, silent boy, Danny must stake everything she has—her leadership, her sanity, and her life— in order to defeat the ultimate horror in a terrifying and dying world.

Editorial Reviews

If you are wanting a good zombie book for the Halloween holiday, I do suggest you get Rise Again. In some ways it does remind me of Night of the Living Dead and even references the movie in a few places. We mostly follow Danielle Adelman (Danny) who is an Iraq war vet with PTSD. On a side note: If any guys out there are worried that the protagonist is female, do not worry as Danny is hard as nails and a great heroine. You won't miss a thing. *think Sigourney Weaver in Aliens* Anyhoo... Danny loses her sister right before the zombie wave suddenly hits town. She doesn't have time to think let alone read the note full of anger and mistrust. Things quickly progress and you are in the middle of the surviving group hoping they find someplace safe. As the story goes on Danny later strikes out on her own to try to find her sister. She quickly learns that either she has survived or hasn't but keeps hope that she is out there somewhere. Danny heads to the only place she can... back to the survivors she helped in her community. Upon returning she finds that there is more to fear than the zombies, but mercenaries who proclaim themselves the leaders of the facility they found. Things go from bad to worse and hopefully Danny can find a way to help them. The ending is haunting and may keep you awake thinking about it. Yep, I was one who was awake thinking on the ending. Wonderful since you don't always get that in a book, horrible because I wanted to sleep! Regardless, I give this book 4 1/2 stars. It gives you exactly what it promises (lots of gore, action, and anxiety). It also gives you that bit extra in how Mr. Tripp develops the characters.

Okay, really don't like to give bad reviews, but ugghh. This book started out slow and never got better. The main character is almost totally unlikable. I understand she had a bad war experience, but on that basis she gives herself permission to physically and mentally run out on everyone that is depending on her including her sister. She spends 90% of the book feeling sorry for herself because no one understands what she went through and getting drunk, or thinking about getting drunk. I can't help but think in a real crisis this would have gotten her and everyone else killed. Please read the Day By Day or MorningStar series or better yet, World War Z.

Downloaded based on the reviews. The story had potential but it never drew me in. The chacters end up being charicatures. E.g., the paramilitary guys, the congress woman, the sharpshooting drunk. Not much of the dialog rang true. Same for the action sequences. A good example is the action surrounding the demise of the Zero Killer. Never ended up caring what happened to the uninfected because you never realy get to know them. The DMV character drove me nuts. Hard to belive she had the smarts to make through vet school. All in all, a page turner in the sense that I skimmed nearly the entire second half of the book. Ending was a let down because it was not in keeping with the faux grit of the story. Still on my quest for a well written zombie story.

Reminescent of that other zombie thriller on telivision but with a voice all its own. And talk about a new twist on zombie evolution! Mr. Tripp has certainly opened the door to another realm of zombie thriller and I'm happy to say that I've stepped across that threshold in complete anticipation of reading more. I can't wait to see where he takes Danny's adventures in the next book. -Christopher John Thomasson: author of Inspirations: poetry, commentary, & short stories, I Am Nobody: a memoir, and the upcoming mystery thriller Average Joe.

Great!

Good book, but, not a great book. A little predictable, and a little long on the personal back story.

Does anyone know when the second book is coming out?
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Interesting, focuses more on the action and not the why, which I liked and disliked at the same time. No wonder writers have such a difficult time pleasing everyone when they pen a new book!

I am a huge fan of all things zombie--as long as there's a plot to be found. This book is now number one on my list, and that's after reading all the Maberry, King, and Moody I could get my hands on. An intriguing storyline, well-developed characters, and a female heroine who doesn't act like a ninny (running in high heels, going down into a dark basement alone with a low-battery flashlight, etc.) make this not just a great read for fans of the genre, but for anyone looking for a good read. Ben Tripp, who are you? Where have you been all my life, and when is your next book coming out?!
