Forget the dead; Lament for the Living. After the zombie apocalypse, the survivors have to decide how to rebuild their lives. Having watched society literally devour itself, those that are left struggle to continue along the path of humanity.

In the three years since the Outbreak that caused society to devour itself, groups of survivors have struggled to rebuild their lives.

While one group seeks to stay off the radar, another is sweeping across the country. However, even in the relative safety of The Sanctuary, not everything is as it seems. Follow the story of Sacks as she joins the ranks of the Rangers, only for her life to be turned upside for the second time.

*** 5.0 out of 5 stars

Lament for the Living takes a step away from other "after the outbreak" survival tales by focusing on the people who bring about what humanity should be known for - their ability to adapt and survive. The world is as bleak as you would imagine it to be after a zombie apocalypse, but it's the survivors and their struggles(combating the risen dead as well as their own personal demons) that really make this trip totally worthwhile. This book is loaded with believable characters who come alive and might even share character traits with people that you know. I loved it and would recommend it to any horror enthusiast. ***
