Surviving The Evacuation, Book 13: Future's Beginning Paperback – May 19, 2018
Enhance your purchase
After the outbreak came the nuclear war. The blasts killed millions. Chaos followed. Most of those unlucky enough not to succumb to starvation and disease joined the ranks of the living dead. Fleeing the impossible nightmare, ten thousand, from nations across the Atlantic seaboard, found refuge on the Welsh island of Anglesey. There, they should have been safe. There, they should have been able to rebuild. There, they were betrayed. Forced to flee once more, a hasty exodus was planned, but those plans were sabotaged. The survivors became scattered across the island of Ireland. Old-world supplies are scarce, hope is running out, and safety is just a memory. The snow has come, and though rain will soon follow, winter has truly begun.
In Dundalk, eight hundred survivors have occupied a local college, but the campus is too dispersed to defend. As they scour the snow-covered town for a safe route to the sea, they find signs of long-fled survivors and answers to a question they hadn’t asked.
In Belfast, the situation is increasingly precarious. There are saboteurs in their midst. As the investigation into their identity slowly progresses, the terrorists continue to plot. Rumours of a mutiny escalate into a riot, while an unseen clock ticks ever closer towards humanity’s destruction.
Set in Belfast and Dundalk, over three days that change everything.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Tayell has once again given fans a good action and mystery story set in a zombie apocalypse. Characters we've grown to know and appreciate continue to prove their flexibility and intelligence amid horrors and mayhem they never asked to see.
I sure hope that my #1 British contemporary writer will continue to add future volumes to this series. For those who haven't read any of Surviving the Evacuation, start with Book 1 and I expect you'll be hooked, too.

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.
The storyline was good and the plot developed nicely. I liked the way the subotage's have been expanded on and then (hopefully) solved.
It's nice to get to know some characters more, such a Sibhoan and of course, Sholto.
I do hope the next book goes back to Bill though.
These books have a good balance of zombie action as well as real life problems and politics which would arise in a situation like they're in.
This is a brilliant series and I would definitely recommend reading these books.
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!!
