My Rating

From the author of the Hater trilogy... A new series of zombies and the apocalypse... In less than twenty-four hours a vicious and virulent disease will destroy virtually the entire population of the Earth. And that's before things get really bad... The first AUTUMN novel focused on those who escaped from the city; this sequel tells us the story of those who didn't.

" You're all I've got left. Your the only thing I can rely on. My family and friends are gone. I don't have a home and I don't own anything other than what's in this van. You're the only thing I seem to be able to hold onto and I don't want to do anything to risk losing you"

In a matter of just a few minutes on a normal, autumn day, 99% of the population drops dead. Leaving only a few survivors behind. The cause is still unknown and that makes the scenario so much more frightening. 2 days later, as if things couldn't get any worse, the dead begin to rise. At first they are useless. Tripping over their own feet, and walking into walls, but they soon begin to regain their basic abilities and eventually only want one thing...You.

Autumn: The City is the second book in the four part saga. After reading the first book, Autumn, I was immediately hooked. David Moody has an incredible writing style and knows how to bring the horror and the suspense in full force. He also introduces fascinating characters that you will be rooting for throughout the whole book. As a big fan of Michael and Emma from Autumn I was pleased that they made a return in this book and was curious to see if and how they would mesh with the other survivor's. It is hard to review this book without giving away spoilers. Short and sweet...This book is awesome!

I love Zombie books, stories and movies, but David Moody brings it all on a completely different level. He knows how to deliver a haunting scenario and knows how to get the goosebumps to rise. There is a perfect balance between the very well told story, and the captivating characters. Like the first book, the intensity and suspense is almost unbearable. You'll be flying though the pages. I can't wait to get my hands on book 3 and to see how the story unfolds. David Moody has made it onto my favourite author's list and the Autumn Series is definitely on my favourite books list!

The Autumn series should not be missed! You don't even need to be a big fan of Zombies, if you enjoy a great, suspenseful story and likable characters, then pick up this series!

What I loved: The cover. The writing style. And pretty much, everything else.
What I disliked: That it ended, and I now have to wait for the next book :-)
