When your immediate reaction on finishing part one in a series is to download part 2 and start reading straight away, you've got to give the book at least 4.5 stars, haven't you?
I've read most of Frank Tayell's version of this story set in England, and in this sub-series we meet again the character of Sholto, alias Tom Clemens (alias various other names), with whom Bill Wright from England made contact in Book 1 of Surviving the Evacuation.
Tom's life is in tatters following the partial uncovering of a conspiracy against - well, the whole world, really, and he's a wanted man. Then the virus is unleashed, and all around is mayhem. He escapes New York with a woman called Helena, and together they flee north, escaping zombies and various people who want to kill them as they go. They're not as expert at dealing with their new situation as I would have expected; don't these people watch The Walking Dead??! But they're learning....
I wasn't sure about the book at first, as it seemed a little rushed and in need of tidying up, but it gets better and better as it goes along, and by the last third I was completely engrossed, and eagerly await more. Highly recommended, if you like well-written zombie apocalypse series that have more behind them than just some unexplained virus, and are not too heavy on the goo and gore.
I got hold of this book early and to my great pleasure, the author has picked up where he left off. I won't ruin the story for you all, but this book revisits the original series, but from the US perspective. The zombie concept is all too often ruined by authors, who in my limited view just go too far, (so you think zombies exist I hear you say), but in this case I am happy to say that the author stays true.
I would have no hesitation recommending this book to followers of the genre and even if you aren't, give it a go - it might just surprise you.
Well written with an intricate plot and a few surprises with the Sholto character.
A good read, I look forward to the next in the series. Frank Tayell is a master in this genre.
It is a proper page turner and full of action. It was nice to meet Tom/Sholto properly and he is a likeable character.
Frank's books focus on the human reactions to the apocalypse around them, how ordinary people deal with extraordinary circumstances an make decisions we all understand but know are wrong. Whilst this is a book featuring zombies, there is no gratuitous gore. Yes zombies attack and people die but it is not overdone and this for me makes the series work. There is s real, well constructed story here that doesn't need the added distraction of detailed descriptions of horror. I a fan of horror

Good to see the other half of the story from 'surviving the evacuation'. Not as locally detailed as the London based books, but an enjoyable read still.Published 4 months ago by Book Enthusiast

Fantastic writing as ever from Mr Tayell
Still worthy of a better cover design though - too clunky.. looks like its designed by someone who attended dtp classes in 1997 :)
