I received this book to give an honest review.
Alright I have to say this book was way better than the first one. Chris really redeemed himself and really tried to be a better father to Maisie. We see how people in his past will become a part of his life now. One character George is someone Chris knows and gives him good advice that he needed to hear. When Maisie is bitten Chris will stop at nothing to find a cure, but will it be too late? She only has 8 hours to live and a lot can happen within those 8 hours. We see a bit more of the zombies within this one which is good. I really liked how it wasn't easy to just go from one place to another. We see that not only does Chris and Maisie deal with the zombies but they also have to deal with humans, not everyone is as helpful as others.
I felt the characters were a lot better this time around. They seemed to know how to handle themselves and the situations that were thrown their way. The plot was steady and action filled. If you read book one and decided it was not the book for you then I say give book two a chance. For me it was a whole lot better than I expected.
