The sequel to Rise Again from an author who “balances kinetically choreographed scenes of zombie carnage with studies of well-drawn characters and enough political intrigue to give his tale more gravity and grounding than most zombie gorefests” (Publishers Weekly).

The sequel to Rise Again, from an author who “balances kinetically choreographed scenes of zombie carnage with studies of well-drawn characters and enough political intrigue to give his tale more gravity and grounding than most zombie gorefests” (Publishers Weekly).

Billions died and rose again, hungry for human flesh. When the nightmare reached Sheriff Danielle Adelman’s small mountain community of Forest Peak, California, it was too late for warnings . . . forcing her to lead a small group of survivors out of hell, all the while seeking her estranged runaway sister at any cost.

Two years later, the undead have evolved. Now, besides the shambling, mindless cannibals are the hunters—cunning and fast, like wolves—and the thinkers, whose shocking intel­ligence and single-minded predatory obsession may mean the downfall of what’s left of humanity. As Danny leads a ragtag band of the living through the remnants of the American Midwest, rumors arise of a safe place somewhere east. But the closer they get to it, the more certain Danny becomes that something evil waits for them at the end of the line. With an unspeakable secret riding beside her and an unbreakable promise made to a small, silent boy, Danny must stake everything she has—her leadership, her sanity, and her life— in order to defeat the ultimate horror in a terrifying and dying world.

I kept trying to get into this book, but just couldn't get drawn in. I had no empathy for the main character who came off as emotionless and disconnected. Sometimes you just have to admit there's no gas in the tank.

This is a sequel to Rise Again by Ben Tripp. However, if you have not had the good fortune to read Rise Again, you can still read this book, because it is that good and explains enough about the Zombie Apocalypse that you can go on from there. This book balances action with well developed characters and locations. What makes this book rise above most of the zombie books you can read out there, is the zombies are learning and also developing. This book is about a small group of survivors that are trying to continue surviving against the horror that their daily life has become. You will really be missing out if you don't grab yourself a copy of this book and read it. You better plan on some free time, because you won't be able to put it down. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sheriff Danielle (Danny) Adelman leads The Tribe, a group of survivors of the zombie plague. There are now three types of ‘zeros’: moaners, hunters, and thinkers…so even the dead evolve. The Tribe starts to hear stories about a safe place for kids in the Midwest, but Danny’s not so sure because sometimes things are too good to be true. As much as she didn’t want to be, Danny’s right and there is an unthinkable evil lurking in Happy Town. She must risk everything to stop this evil before it wipes out all remains of humanity on Earth. RISE AGAIN: BELOW ZERO is the sequel to RISE AGAIN, which I haven’t read. However, it didn’t seem to be an impediment to my understanding and the entertainment of this book. I really liked Danny and I still had a lot of respect for her by the end of the book, even if I didn’t like some of her decisions. However, she had a lot of people to look out for and you’re never going to please everyone all of the time. The thought of zombie evolution (aside from zombies in general!) was disturbing and highly creepy, which made for a great plot device. Reading as a stand-alone, I enjoyed RISE AGAIN: BELOW ZERO and how well the author was able to creep beneath my skin.

Kept me enthralled the whole way through. I was pleasantly surprised by the author's ability to paint a picture of a zombie caste system. Great action packed read!

It's refreshing to read a book that isn't simply a re-tread of Night of the Living Dead. Mr Tripp creates characters that you care about and root for, despite imperfections. One of the best zombie books to be published recently.
