*Deadlocked 2 starts off right where the first story ends, so if you haven't read the first book,Deadlocked,this review might contain spoilers.*
Laura has taken some pretty devastating blows and it`s far from over. Not only is she having to deal with the unimaginable, a zombie apocalypse, but she has just watched her husband, David, sacrifice himself to keep her and their daughters safe. As much as she may want to fall apart, she can't. With Billy gone in search of his mother, keeping her daughters safe is now solely on her. It will be a fight that will pull back the layers of her humanity, unleashing a fierce mother who will not let anyone or any zombie come in the way of keeping her daughters alive.
I didn't think Deadlock 2 could be better than the first book, but I was so wrong. Once again, this is a story driven by emotion thus making this story and the characters all that more believable. I think it takes an exceptional writer to be able to pull you in and have you feeling the emotions, and A.R. Wise does it so perfectly. Like the first book, this is fast paced and you are hooked from the start. The character development with Laura is very well done as well. The things that Laura must do to protect her daughters are admirable and sometimes frightening. Another great book by A.R. Wise, who is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors.
