Alexis is at it again, trying to survive and build a community of survivors. Runs out daily for supplies is just a way of life in the winter months of New Orleans. She’s holding strong, but just surviving, not living. The hero changes in this one and we still get to cut up zombies on a regular basis.
A slight spoiler for the first book if you haven’t read it, so you have been warned.
At the end of the first book, Blake takes off to rescue his ex-wife in Texas, leaving Alexis heartbroken and alone. She’s surviving but not really living life. Zach knows and keeps her busy on runs, security and running the compound they have secured. They have taken on more survivors and are hearing horror stories of a gang of men taking over a school and bartering women for their needs. It’s not really the most ideal time to be living, but living they are as they create their own society.
Zach like to watch Blake and Alexis together in the first book, but Blake made his choice and left. Zach’s no dummy and wants Alexis for his own. While he flirts and asks for a chance quite regularly, he never pushes Alexis too hard. They live on S-Island (Survivor Island) in a house together, but on separate levels. While Alexis and Zach fall in love, it wasn’t an instant falling into bed when Blake left. It took months. So don’t be thinking Alexis is a slut. Blake told her to move on, and not she has.
It’s about six months since the zombie out break happened and supplies are scarce. The group is having to go farther and farther to get what they need. Everyone has a job, no one gets to slack off.
Boom! Blake comes back with his ex, her sister and other survivors they found along the way and now the group has gotten bigger. Let’s not forget that Blake and Alexis were in love and that feeling doesn’t go away instantly. So the love triangle gets complicated, but let’s throw in Blake’s ex who is a lazy, drama whore. Yeah, I said it, bitch. She wants to be queen of the island, never work and think she is the shit that doesn’t smell.
The story ends in a cliff-hanger worse than the first book. I have to wait till September to get the next installment? Who do I have to cut to get it earlier, because damn I don’t do well waiting to find out what happens! So you will see me stalking Gillian Zane’s (and yes, I know who she really is under the pseudo name) websites, Amazon page and Goodreads to get me some more Alexis time!
