Publisher's Summary

From the universe of the Until the End of the World series

Book two of The City Series is here! (Note: The City Series can be heard before or after the Until the End of the World series)

Months into the apocalypse, the zombies show no signs of dying, but it's clear everyone in Sunset Park will die without enough food to outlast the undead. Add in the less-than-sociable new neighbors only blocks away, and the hunt for sustenance has come to feel more like a race than a ramble.

Sylvie is happy in her new home with the people who've become like family, though she's still working out how to let them into her heart. Eric wants in, and he wants to find his sister, but he can't do both at the same time. If he can do the second one at all - getting into the city was hard enough, getting out may prove impossible.

Despite setbacks - and a couple million zombies - it seems fortune is working in their favor. After all, food, security, and family are extraordinary when just being alive is a notable accomplishment. But fortune can turn on a dime, and all it takes is one misstep.

Great series

Book 2 doesn’t disappoint. The saga continues, and the story is just as compelling as the first. It was hard for me to stop listening, and can’t wait for the next installment. The characters and their relationships feel authentic, and these Zombie times are crazy!

Fix the audio!

I love the author and I love her books but changing the way the narrators read it for this book was really jarring and it’s subpar to the first book. Keep all the ladies read by Therese and all the men by Luke. The worst was Leo who seemed years different in age depending on who read him. Sylvie and Eric both were not captured well by the opposite genders, it’s like they didn’t even listen to each other’s portrayals. Not sure why it was changed but it was a huge fail and disappointment.

✫✫ 4.5 Stars ✫✫

Another great book in the End of the World series. I have been devouring these books since last week. So good!!!!! Love the world the author has created but even more I love all the City descriptions and I feel like I am there (thankfully not the situation just the city lol) So much happened in this book but the ending was SOOO Hard! Can't wait to see how this ends in the next book. I hope it's with a little closure and hope for change.

Therese Plummer and Luke Daniels were great but I have to say who ever Proofed this audiobook did a terrible job!!!! I caught multiple mistakes. This is recorded in duet style but there are parts were Therese narrates the male parts in her female voice and parts were she narrates the male voice in her male voice when Luke is supposed to be narrating all the male parts. Not blaming the narrators but the proofers or who ever splits the book into who does what parts.

It was okay!

The story itself was decent but Sylvie's character got on my last nerve. I didn't like the way they switched up the narration. In the first book the woman read all the female parts and the man read all the male part which really gets you engaged. This book the female read everything in the Sylvie chapters. If there is a third book I hope they do the narration the way they did in the first on.

Ready for the next book

I hope the next book is written and ready to go, I’m so ready for it! I don’t think that liking or disliking zombies really matter much when listening to this book, actually all the books she’s written. You get so involved with knowing, loving or maybe disliking the characters (not too many to dislike), that you want them to do whatever it takes to survive. As I listened I could picture so much in my mind, Ms Fleming does a awesome job of making everything so real. Hope there’s a new book soon!! This book could be for any YA thru senior...I’m 67yrs old!

Anticipation overwhelmed

Easily one of the best zombie series ever written. The author actually takes the time to insert you directly into the relationships and feelings of the stories main characters. You will see what they see and feel as they feel, it is an end of the world scenario like no other. Don’t miss out on this one.

Love the series hated the narrators

Update!!! The author said that audible is redoing this book so it will be the same as the first!!! Can't wait!!!

I love all of her books, but why for the love of all that's holy did they do the voices this way??? The last book was great, how Luke Daniels read all the male parts and Therese Plummer read all the female parts, not with each doing all the voices in their particular chapters. It made this narration horribly confusing. Do NOT do the next book in this series if there will be one like this please, I beg you!!! Do it the way it was done in the first book in the City series please.

Humor, Zombies and Some Romance

I was very impressed with the first book in the series, and equally impressed with the second. There was a moment where I was saying to myself, wait .. this is a romance book .. what am I doing listening to a chick lit offering. But throw in some apocalypse adventure and a little humor and deep relationship commitments and it looks like I am on board full throttle.

The third book in the series has yet to be published so I did a little research on the author and found out there are related books from the same world focusing on the lost sister of Eric Forrest - Cassie. I will now have to find out if her story will match the intensity of the incredible main protagonist, Sylvie in this City Series.

Eric and Sylvie got some bad news in this book when looking for Cassie. It looked like she did not make it. Now I will find out for sure in the "Until the End of the World" series.

I will not reveal much of the plot - it is more fun to just let this good book unfold. But, be prepared for some heartbreak - not all of the main characters make it to the end.

Change in narration from first book throws you off

Would you try another book from Sarah Lyons Fleming and/or Therese Plummer and Luke Daniels ?

Yes, I enjoy the authors writing style and will continue to listen to her books. However, the change in the narration style from the first book is very disappointing. The narrators were great in the first book. Therese did all of the female voices and Luke did all of the male voices. In this book, They were really able to bring each character to life with individual personalities. In this second book, Therese does ALL of the voices for the Sylvie chapters and Luke does ALL of the voices fro the Eric chapters. The inconsistency is very distracting and throws off the ability to get lost in the story.

What did you like best about this story?

I like ve pst apocalyptic stories and the humanity of people coming together in difficult situations

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Therese Plummer and Luke Daniels ?

I think they do a good job narrating the characters of their own gender and the book would have been better if the narration was done the same as in book one.

Story was good, wasn't particular on the narration

I did like it better when the guys in the story were read by a guy and the women read by the woman like the previous book.
