Red always knew she would have to face the man who nearly destroyed her. She just didn’t figure it would happen so soon....
With the plague sweeping across the nation, destroying many and turning others into walking corpses, survivors head West in search of a chosen land, a place designed to keep the infected out, while sealing survivors inside. In theory, the idea seems the only way to keep humanity alive. In practice, it doesn’t matter whether a person is on the inside or the out—there is no humanity.
...And even though John Gatherum hunted her down and instigated their reunion, Red’s no longer the passive girl he once manipulated. This time, she has a hidden agenda of her own.
Kill him. Save her family. Save herself.

Continuing the incredibly descriptive saga of a band of survivors trying to live a life, love, and not get bitten. There's so much going on, yet while it is fast and furious, it's also touching, scary, creative and intriguing.
The story picks up where it left off. The author gave me just enough back information to catch up and then the story took off, pulling me back in time, to the west and the characters I’ve come to love. The relationship between Trace and Red strengthens now that some of their secrets have been shared. Red and Trace head out to gather much need provisions, making it past the horde outside. Their journey takes them to Mill Creek. The town is like undead central, zombies everywhere. Red’s secret comes in handy as she slips past the zombies as if she’s invisible, scrounging up as much as she can and heading back to Trace, waiting at the wagon. The zombies might not have noticed her, but others did, and now they want Red. She may have made it past the horde, but will they survive what’s coming? Either of them? I always to into the next book in a series with a bit of trepidation. Will it give me the answers I seek? Will it be as good as the first book? My fears were allayed in the first chapter. Survivor Roundup is as awesome as Wanted: Dead or Undead. I’m also big on character driven stories, so the group dynamics were important. Those of you who watch apocalyptic movies and read the books know it’s not just about surviving the cause of it. It’s also about making those life and death decisions, recognizing trouble when it raises its ugly head, and compromising when necessary. Their has to be give and take if the group is to survive. The author had me so wrapped up in her characters lives. Even the ones I couldn’t stand. And for you die-hard zombie fans. Angela can write those gut-clenching, gory, munching and hacking scenes. What’s a good zombie story without some gnashing and slaying. She does this so well I’d call it writing in color. The ending for the first book was hopeful. One of the best I’ve read. The ending for this one is darker, harder to take, and you do get left hanging. But that’s what a series is all about. Just like your favorite TV show, you can’t wait for the next episode. And there’s a big surprise waiting for you in this one. You’ll love it. I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.
A couple months ago when I read Wanted: Dead or Undead, I was excited about this fresh and unusual take on zombies and I couldn’t wait to read more. With Survivor Roundup I definitely got my wish granted. This story takes place not too long after the first book in the series ended. Supplies are getting low so Trace and Red decide they will be the ones to go and scout for supplies. Any time they leave the confines of the fort they know they are taking a chance, and those odds haven’t lessened at all. The number of undead seem to be increasing. So they are off and running, and then the unthinkable happens – they are discovered and separated. This book really tugged on my heart strings at times. I really love these two characters, and their happiness is important to me. They are so good together, that even when they are separated and they don’t even believe the other is alive – they are still acting like a married couple. During their time apart they could both easily go their separate ways. There were definitely times I was fearful that’s what was happening. But their story definitely wasn’t over. This book has a multitude of different reunions – and it includes reuniting Red and Trace, thankfully. I’ve become attached to these characters, and I loved reading more about them. The action was terrific in this story. There are monsters that are definitely more scary than the zombies, and that is the monster that is within the living. Everything was definitely amped up in this story. It was very engaging, and I was quickly turning the pages to find out what happens next. There are also some big surprises in this book. One of those looks like it could lead to a book three, so I am crossing my fingers. I definitely want to know how this will be handled, considering that Red is the person that she is. If you read the first book in the Zombie West Series, you will definitely want to continue on with this book.
