Product Description

Product Description

After barely escaping the sinking cruise ship they’d found adrift in the gulf of Mexico, Steve Wendell and the remains of his group enter Galveston and Texas City to find them burned and abandoned by the living, but not by the dead. The shores are swarming with them. When their boat is holed by debris, they search for another and come across a group of survivors who’ve taken refuge on a deactivated battleship. Agreeing to help these people get to safety in exchange for use of their boats, they soon find that except for one of this new group, they are an albatross around their neck.
As they make their way through a landscape full of the dead who want to kill and eat them, and the living who want to kill and rob them, they find it’s a continual battle of survival. When they discover their way is blocked by a huge mob of the dead, they take refuge in the last place they could have ever imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie horror 9 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought it was well written, you really connected with the characters, it is a brilliant sequel to a brilliant to the previous 2 books which were also brilliant. I found myself completely engrossed in the book so much so it was o400am before I even realised I needed to go to bed. i recommend it totally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series of zombie books 16 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love this series of zombie books. You get to really know the characters and you get completely involved in the story so much so that its difficult to put down. I also like the fact that its not just about one group of people and that you "jump" between groups of characters in different scenarios. The fear of those trying to survive, the fear of those forced to fight against the zombie hordes and the fear of the army and their experiments are terrifying but along with this fear you also have the dark humor and light hearted episodes that makes you truly believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I can't wait for the last book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the other two 13 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read the previous two, so just had to buy the third in the series, not giving anything away, as good as the last two books, and again, as the last two, subtle flashbacks to enable you to read as a standalone if you so wish, but I would recommend reading the other two first, good book, worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRING IT ON DEAD DUDE!!!!! 13 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another gem from Jon Schafer. I think the government and the UN should hire him as a Zombie Consultant, for the inevitable pandemic which will eventually wipe us all out. He'll put together a good plan before the outbreak rather than having to think on his feet during the end of days. I'm building an arsenal of weapons to protect myself and my family. So far I have a baseball bat with 6" nails in the end of it (ouch), a kitchen knife strapped to a broomhandle (keeps the Zs at Arms length) and a hatchet tied to a skipping rope (throw, bang, dead, pull back, throw again). I intend to make a website with instructional videos to help people get organised. When I'm online on the internet I'll tell people about my website so they can watch and learn. From my experiences with zombies, knowledge is power (and guns). I'm not gonna sit on my ass waiting. I'm gonna take the fight to them, the undead-flesheating-son's of-

Are you with me? ILL SEE YOU IN HELLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!
