With the help of her new companions, the path Kansas follows leads to more knowledge of the ever adapting famished.
The team finds help in unlikely places, meeting more survivors, and discovers the possibility of a new beginning.
When the team experiences a devastating loss, Kansas struggles to keep her humanity from fading and distorting like that of the surviving society around her. It begins with knowing who to trust and who to leave behind. First, she must trust herself – she won't make the same mistakes twice.
As the answers to her questions are revealed, Kansas begins to understand the knowledge comes with a heavy price and great responsibility of controlling the dead.

In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, this adult dark fantasy is as emotional as it is horrifyingly gripping.

Author of dark fantasy and sub-genres of horror. Voracious Reader and Googler. Lover of dark humor. Horror Buff. Zombie Apocalypse Enthusiast. Loyal Cracked follower. Pinterest Addict. Wife of adoring husband. Mother of a seven year old Bruce Wayne. Cook. Maid. Kisser of boo-boos. Ultimate Time Waster. Perfect Procrastinator. Lolly Gagger. Trubie. Cake Decorator. Tea Drinker. Sculpey Sculptor. Girl Gamer. Perfectionist in the art of Facebook stalking. And now, God help me, a blogger. Oh yeah, and a twitter, twatter, tweeter. Well yeah, I'm one crafty bitch.

oh WOW. Where in the world do I start? People see "zombie" and think....ugh blood, guts, and yuck. Well let me just tell you....Zombie stories are some of the most intense and deeply emotional stories out there!!! and Annie Walls is a ROCK STAR author who writes some of the most amazing character stories and plots!!! 

Taking On The Dead was one of my favorite books of last year and I could not wait to get my hands on the sequel. I kept thinking, "How in the world is Annie going to top that? How is she going to make the story any better than it already is??" Well i got my answer!!! WOW! 

Kan "Kansas" is just a phenomenal character. She is a strong, emotional heroine who is caught in a love triangle between two guys who are both equally HOT and full of personality. Mac and Rudy.....

oh, Mac and Rudy....I mean they are both the definition of hotness BUT I will have to admit that I am pulling for Rudy. He is just so amazing and when he and Kan are together I feel as though I can actually feel the connection between them. 

There are so many new characters introduced in this book and each one with their own special meaning! I loved getting to meet the new characters and get to experience the trials and tribulations that they all take together. I will have to say that my favorite "new" character would have to be Dex, the CAT!! I cant help it! I am weak for animals and Dex brings a new story to the Mac and Rudy relationship. 

There are so many intense moments to talk about and so many incredible twists that had me in complete shock. I literally had to put the book down and take a deep breath. I am not going to write any spoilers because this is something that the reader should experience for themselves. There is so much more to this book than killing zombies. It is just a phenomenal book and ANNIE WALLS has done it again! Bravo, girl...YOU ROCK!!!
