The post-apocalypse zombie trilogy continues with a thriller that’s “rich with character and eerie with the kind of scares that get under your skin” (Jay Bonansinga, New York Times–bestselling author). Having barely escaped the clutches of the undead, the survivors of The Breadwinner are headed into the unknown to continue their search for solace in the post-apocalyptic landscape. Once a paradise for the living, the city of Haven is now crawling with flesh hungry creatures—yet it could be their only hope. Veronica, Samson, and the others take a chance on the promises of Gary, a solitary survivor who may be hiding sinister motives behind his hospitality. Meanwhile, two ordinary women are faced with extraordinary horrors and obstacles as they struggle to make it to safety. If they don’t succeed, they’ll each become just another undead face in the hordes roaming the streets of Haven. When tragedy strikes, worlds collide, and the survivors must band together against their common enemy. But remember, who you were does not determine what you will become in the face of a catastrophe. The dead may no longer be their greatest threat. Welcome home. Haven is hell. “The underlying theme that living humans are by far the most dangerous creatures in the animal kingdom resonates throughout the entire novel, culminating itself in an explosive ending that will undoubtedly leave Breadwinner fans eager for the final book in the trilogy, All Good Things.” —Kurt Schuett, author of Insurgency “In a world filled with zombie fiction, The Breadwinner Trilogy stands out from the pack, hungrily gnashing its broken teeth. For once, I urge you to let it dig right in.” —Jim Dodge, Mass Movement MagazineShow book
