If you haven't started the series, zompoc aficionados need to do. The first volume Surviving the Evacuation Book 1: London might even be a free read on Amazon. It was a free e-book just a few weeks ago for sure and is worth checking now.
As for this book in particular, I love how some of the separate stories are all coming together. I'm also not a huge sickly sweet romance fan, so I appreciate how that has been dealt with. This book shows that romance can happen and even be an integral part of the plot without being over the top. I don't need a play by play of their affections to understand how deeply people feel for each other.

Ok, right up front this isn’t a single book review I’m reviewing the whole saga that is ‘Surviving the Evacuation’. I’m retired with plenty of time on my hands and like to read books that form a series rather than just individual stories. I admit that having finished reading the 20 books, so far, in the series I went back to book 1 and started reading the series for a second time enjoying it just as much as I did the first time.
First off, this is one of the best series of books I have read and I read a lot in the post-apocalyptic genre. Normally I would avoid books about zombies but this series isn’t really about zombies although they are the focus of the problems the characters have in their survival. It’s about surviving in a post-apocalyptic world and all the problems that that entails.
What is refreshing in this series is that women play a major role in the leadership, decision making and the fighting.
I’m desperately trying not to put any spoiler’s in this review so it won’t be an in-depth review of the individual stories.
Basically the story starts in England and then travels across continents. What I like is that the author will track what happens to individuals as they venture into the wastelands but he also keeps track of what is happening back at where the main body of the survivors are currently based.
There’s plenty of action fighting the zombies, corrupt government officials, a criminal cartel and survival itself.
One thing, you have to leave reality behind you are stepping off the reality bus when you read a book about zombies. Yes, you can look at what the characters in the book do and say to yourself they wouldn’t do that or they should’ve done this or this just wouldn’t happen.
This isn’t a ‘Surviving the Apocalypse book for Dummies’ so don’t expect the characters to act or do things that people would do in the real world.
This series of books are simply a good read and I’m looking forward to reading the continuation of the stories that the author has started in the books. There is still a long way for the survivors to go and I hope the author is up to the journey.
It also feels like there is an awful lot of filler. So much so that I feel that I start to skim and then probably miss the impact of the larger plot points. I *really* wish there was some kind of wiki page like there is with other series, to provide a synopsis of each story arc. Have not found one to date. Come on internet people, someone must have done this!
Perhaps my rating reflects more on me than the book. I think the StE is a massive achievement and hats off to Frank. I just wish it was easier to appreciate fully.
The story moves forward allot more than previous books have, and the style is returned to a more traditional third person perspective, which I think really helped link all sub plots and narratives.
Quite simply the best zombie /survival series out there, and I've read loads of them!....
