Do I recommend STE Book 12: Britain's End? I can give a wholehearted YES to that question. I would even go so far as to recommend starting with Book 1 and moving up to 12. Tayell surprised me with his good storytelling and improvements in it as the series continued. Action, horror, love, suspense: it's all in the series and worth suspending disbelief to follow.
I have to note here that Tayell uses a cool device to bring readers up to date with the story, especially helpful to new readers I imagine. He has a teenage girl explain past events to an infant and she does so with humor and gusto. Great use of the device!

There are obvious parallels between these books and The Walking Dead. The difference between them is that this series of books goes more in depth, and you really get to know the characters. I really love how each of the books connect with each other, and they are building a history of different communities coming together after an apocalyptic event. These books are how The Walking Dead could have been. By using different groups of characters, and different locations, there are infinite possibilities.
I love the interactions of the characters, and seeing how people come to rely on each other. It’s the details like food and water, and basic survival, that makes this series of books more interesting than the programmes on tv. You really get a sense of the magnitude of losing all basic amenities.
I’m really enjoying these books. They’re perfect bedtime reading and I look forward to many more.
I bought book 1 on 13 August 2018 and continued to buy the series up to book 14 on 19 October 2018. Please hurry up Frank, and release book 15!!
(My reviews for books 1 to 7 and books 12 to 14 will show as an Amazon Verified Purchase. Books 8 to 11 were bought for me by a friend as a present, so obviously aren’t verified on my account)
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.
