Part two of this series picks up immediately after the end of the first. David's wife, Laura, is forced to take over the protection of their family as the boat travels out into Hailey Bay, away from the zombies. However, the boat's pilot plans to dock back in the overrun city to rescue his own family, which will put Laura's in jeopardy.

Laura is forced to overcome unimaginable horrors as the zombie apocalypse explodes around her, but it is the evil intent of the humans around her that present her greatest challenge. The reader is taken far beyond the edge of their seat as Laura pushes forward to the inevitable end. No one is safe in a world where the dead hunt the living.

Um, can you say DISGUSTING?  This book had me getting a bit queasy at times.  Blech!  True zombie horror to the max!  What I loved about this book aside from the horror factor, was the extreme protectiveness of a mother to do whatever it takes to protect her children.  Even when that means putting herself in danger.  That's real life and the author captured the essence of that aspect of motherhood very well in this story.

You want blood and guts and flesh eating?  This book has it!  You want a story about survival and how the drive for self preservation affects humans, for the good and the bad?  This book has that too!

Favorite quotes:

"I was the only hope she had of a cure.  If I stayed here, she would die, and so I forced myself to stand."

"There was nothing left of the humble, kind, timid woman that I'd been that morning.  I'd become something else entirely."

4.5 stars for the sheer terror and gross factors alone!  Very strong language, and as such not intended for younger readers.
