As the survivors continue to seek stability in their lives,
forces both inside and outside the fort walls move
them toward a final, climactic conflict between
the living and the dead. Jenni, Katie and the others
discover that they are not alone, that there is another
enclave of survivors whose leaders plan to take over the fort.
Faced with a series of difficult decisions, each choice they
make could lead to the deaths of those they love or, if not
careful, their own demise.
Meanwhile, an army of the dead is descending on the fort.
Soon, the living will face their ultimate fear...
...a siege by the dead.
But they will fight to the end to survive...
As the world dies.
Review: This was such a bittersweet ending for me!!! Even with that though I still loved this book to pieces! I don't know where to start with this book! I guess I'll start with the action part of the book. In the last book we ended with someone from the military watching the fort. The military that was watching them plays a huge role in this book! They are working for the vice president, now president who apparently survived and are part of another huge group of survivors somewhere else in Texas (Madison Mall I think). These survivors are under much stricter rules than at the fort though. One of the Madison Mall survivors though happens to be Blanche's sister. And she has this very strict idea of how the survivors are to live now. And she wants to make the fort a part of that plan too. Though things dont exactly work out the way she hopes they will when it comes to that plan.
The fort itself had its own amount of drama. The vigilante is still on the loose throughout most of the book, causing tons of havoc. Blanche is causing an immense amount of drama and even shoots some people just to try and leave because she thinks she'll do better at her own house because her luxuries are there. And then lies when she gets caught. Idiot! No one is going to believe her since all she does is cause drama. On top of that they are dealing with hordes of zombies coming their way and the military group. They just had a whole lot to deal with.
I really enjoyed the multiple POV's again. I also really enjoyed their incorporation of the spirits of the deceased! That made many scenes very very interesting! I was very excited that Katie had her baby! After everything that happened in this book the baby made a nice happy ending to it! The rest was bittersweet however. One of the main characters dies and many of the side characters die due to the zombie horde. I was happy yet really sad with the ending!
