The sequel to Rise Again, from an author who "balances kinetically choreographed scenes of zombie carnage with studies of well-drawn characters and enough political intrigue to give his tale more gravity and grounding than most zombie gorefests" (Publishers Weekly).

Billions died and rose again, hungry for human flesh. When the nightmare reached Sheriff Danielle Adelman's small mountain community of Forest Peak, California, it was too late for warnings . . . forcing her to lead a small group of survivors out of hell, all the while seeking her estranged runaway sister at any cost.

Two years later, the undead have evolved. Now, besides the shambling, mindless cannibals are the hunters--cunning and fast, like wolves--and the thinkers, whose shocking intel-ligence and single-minded predatory obsession may mean the downfall of what's left of humanity. As Danny leads a ragtag band of the living through the remnants of the American Midwest, rumors arise of a safe place somewhere east. But the closer they get to it, the more certain Danny becomes that something evil waits for them at the end of the line. With an unspeakable secret riding beside her and an unbreakable promise made to a small, silent boy, Danny must stake everything she has--her leadership, her sanity, and her life-- in order to defeat the ultimate horror in a terrifying and dying world.

Tripp brings the events set in motion in Rise Again (2010) to a spectacular conclusion in this smart zombie thriller. Former Marine Danny Adelman is still the nominal leader of the Tribe, a nomadic convoy of survivors toughing out the zombie apocalypse. Danny is also protecting her zombie-bitten sister, Kelley, a “thinker” zombie who retains enough of her humanity to set her apart from the shambling “zeroes.” This new wrinkle in zombie evolution sets up a tense situation in Happy Town, a supposed haven where it’s hard to tell the zeroes from the humans, and where Danny is played as a pawn by factions vying for power. Tripp excels at depicting a world whose center no longer holds and whose inhabitants will resort to any measure to stay alive. More than a routine zombiefest, this taut and intelligent tale succeeds as a moving meditation on a world steeped in “the loneliness of life without afterlife.” (Dec.)
