My two favourite characters Erin and Izzy's story is written by Erin and tells their story just prior to, during and immediately after the "big event" to which all the books relate. We hear how they meet up and how, as two young orphans, they find themselves alone in the world.
The other main character in this book is telling his story from four years after the event and the horrors associated with living in a post apocalyptic world with crazy people and the walking dead.
We also hear very briefly from father who, at nine years post event, just begins his journal.
This is a very emotional visit to the characters of TSATD and, in the case of the two main storylines, we have some back information which answers some questions from the other books about how the survived the apocalypse and arrived to the point where we met them in previous books.
If you haven't read the previous books (at least 1 &2) then, although still a readable book, it won't mean as much to you. So my suggestion to you would be, don't miss out! Go read all the previous books 0.5, 1, 1.5 & 2 then give this one a go to get the full understanding from it.
NB I was given this book by the authors to read pre publication but this review is totally mine and is my honest review of the book.
If you have read some of this series before you know how good this will be..and if you haven't you really should jump in!

The series is written as a collection of letters, notes, and memoirs of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse. The zombie apocalypse has become a popular genre, but this series of books focuses more upon the individuals and their feelings rather than trying to explain WHY there was a zombie apocalypse, or going into detail about the guns and weapons used to fight the zombies. In some ways, it reminds me of the Walking Dead, especially when contrasted to series like John Ringo's "Dark Tide Rising" series. I am a big John Ringo fan as well, but for different reasons.
The stories skip around chronologically, which sounds confusing, but isn't. The stories are labeled with a time delta, such as "6 days before," or "9 years, 133 days after."
In particular, this book focuses a lot on the characters Delfino and Erin, who were both first introduced in Book One. This book tells more of their story, and helps you understand WHY they are the way they are. I love the way McBain and Vargus describe scenes vividly, and this book is no exception.
I would recommend reading the other books in the series before reading this one, but it's not essential. You are supposed to be sort of lost with this type of book, and part of the fun comes from finding out the story in bits in pieces over time. If you enjoyed their other books, you will almost certainly enjoy this one as well.
The last chapter lead to an interesting discussion between myself and my daughter about her world thirty to forty years from now.
Not the case here.
Rather than a shaky tower that gets more top-heavy with each iteration, this is like receiving a new puzzle piece with each new book. A brand new series of snapshots of the lives of our protagonists with each new released title.
This is the post-apocalyptic book you've been looking for. Well thought out, very human characters who can be seven flavors of messed up, yet all the same you find yourself loving them. I'm already anticipating the next puzzle piece of this living, breathing world. I can't wait to see what happens next.
