Synopsis: It has been one hundred days since the zombies claimed the world. Cash, along with forty-two survivors, have found safety in the secluded and well-guarded Fox National Park. The leaves are changing colors, a beautiful, brutal reminder that winter is coming. As the survivors prepare for freezing months without electricity and not enough food, they learn of massive zombie herds several hundred miles north…and headed their way.

To save the park, Cash must find a place for the survivors to hide from the migrating herds. If Cash and her small band of volunteers don’t succeed by winter, the Fox survivors just may become Deadland’s Harvest.

(Deadland’s Harvest is a journey through Dante Alighieri's classic tale on the seven deadly sins… zombie apocalypse style!)

Series: Deadland Series

Review: Cash, Clutch, Jase, and the other members of Camp Fox are doing their best to survive. It’s been 100 days since the zeds have taken over the world and there are few groups of humans left unmolested. They’ve learned to be ruthless about any survivors they find lest they let an infected person into their midst. One of the scariest things they’ve seen lately is huge migrating herds of zeds, cutting a swath right toward them. Now they must find a new place for their group to hide from the herds, but dealing with other humans is a treacherous business. Nothing is easy in this new world, but Camp Fox is determined to survive…

DEADLAND’S HARVEST follows directly after the events in 100 DAYS IN DEADLAND and this time the author takes her characters through the seven deadly sins. DEADLAND’S HARVEST is just as fast-paced with as many deadly dangers as the first book and you can really see the character growth. Clutch isn’t just a hardened solider, he now has a family in Cash and Jase. Cash is a lot stronger than she was in the first book and it was good to see her come more to the forefront regarding negotiations and decision making for the group. I also loved Benji, a little boy with Down Syndrome, who shows there is still hope and goodness in the world. DEADLAND’S HARVEST has a natural flow and doesn’t feel stilted or disjointed. I’m excited to see how the Deadland Saga concludes!
