Publisher's Summary

New to the Hot Springs PD, Lisa Reynolds was not all that welcomed by her coworkers, especially those who were passed over for the position. But it didn't matter anymore. Her 30-day probation period ended on the same day of the Z-poc's arrival. Overnight the world goes from bad to worse as thousands die in the initial onslaught. National Guard and regular military units deployed the day before to the north leave the city in mayhem. All directions lead to death until one unlikely candidate steps forward with a plan, a plan that became an avalanche culminating into what could be the salvation or destruction of them all. A world of death and devastation, left to be ruled by one very unlikely candidate.

My first zombie book, and I loved it!

I thought this book was very well written and narrated. As a truck driver I listen to a lot of books on Audible and it's really easy for me to get distracted and lose interest in a book. That was not the case for this book. It has a good story line, likable characters, and all the hardcore zombie action you could want. I will definitely be buying the next installment as soon as it comes out.

Still a Rush

I read this series and listening to it is even better. LT Lisa Reynolds has found herself in the middle of a full blown Zombie Apocalypse and it is up to her to fight not only to live but to bring the people of Hot Springs together, joining forces with them in an attempt to survive. She has help of course and it is the core group that will bring them together. She along with Tonka, the police dog, Skittle Pop, a drug dealer she allowed to live and Art Benson, a police sgt that is one of the few survivors of the department. Together, they will try to stand united against the hordes of undead, bring some semblance of order and take back the city. She becomes the driving force for unity giving they living a reason to not only fight back but to survive among a world they no longer recognize. Unfortunately for Lisa, one man has set his sights on her. The Skinner, a notorious serial killer whose taste for human flesh is as strong as those of the undead. The story line is strong, the characters are strong each with their own stories of loss and survival. This is one of the better Z Poc series out there. And let's not forget the narrator, he was excellent in his oration not giving over to strange voices of male and female characters. Sometimes, reading a story without the need to change the tone or tenor from male to female is good, he does a wonderful job. Highly recommend not only reading it, but listening to it.

bad narrator

couldn't finish the book. the narrator was a bad pick for this. maybe he'd be better for poetry not a zombie thriller

good book bad reader.

The book could have been much more enjoyable if it was read by someone else. The reader should be reading history books not zombie books..

I'm sorry but this story went from a slow start to boring

I couldn't finish the second book. Overall I kept waiting for the story to make sense and grab a theme It was all over the place gangs, serial killers, jealous coworkers, strange hook-ups people being killed because they would be a pain in the ass to protect ! Not much of a story in my opinion about the zombie apocalypse or the zombies. For me it was a odd book and just got more and more boring. The narrator was good.

can't finish. hate it

I knew within the first 5 minutes this was bad. I tried to hang in there, hoping it would get better, hoping the author would do some character development, hoping he'd slow his roll and flash back to a wind up. nope. I gave it 2 1/2 hours. nope.
this is one note, no skill trash. if you don't care about character development, plot development, or engaging writing whoa buddy this piece of crap is for you!
I hope audible still has the book return thing, ugh.

Very gory story!!

What did you like most about Zombie Rush: Books 1 and 2?

I really liked to read how the ppl got together to protect each other, and clean the city of Zombies.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that people came together to survive.

What does Stephen Bel Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I really feel he gave the characters life, well done!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this series!
