Fallback continues the story of Ellen Hale who we met in the first book, The Dead Survive. Ellen faced more than just the Zombie invasion, she faced the monster that man can be. But she prevailed, and joined a new community, gained a new 'sister', and found that wounds can heal and you can learn to live again.
Now that community is threatened. Not just by zombies, but by a rival community; human marauders who will stop at nothing to take what others have built from the ruins of society. Ellen's new existence and purpose is threatened once again. And the central question is, can one afford to become too comfortable. Have they really built a safety net, or are they sitting ducks?
In response to that, Ellen joins Fallback team 3, a team charged with forging a new safe house, a refuge if the zombies can no longer be held back. As they prepare to leave the community they have called home, safe behind their concrete walls, Ellen questions if it's the right choice. And, faces the possibility of a trader within their ranks. The journey proves to be anything but easy, and the questions are many. Have the two other teams made their destinations? Are those back in the compound safe? Have their been other traitors in the fold?
All I can say is wow. As much as I would have liked to been privy to the fate of the other fallback teams, I was too engrossed in the world of Ellen. I was happy to see her grow more as a character, forge more relationships, and even, very possibly, find love again. What I love about Whiwam's series is the reality she creates for her characters. They not only survive, they forge out communities with purpose and structure.Read more ›
Ellen for sure is a leader and strong female heroine. She also has sass. Some of the other readers commented that they were not feeling the love interest between Ellen and Ty. I did feel the connection. It was not in your face but one that started out slow and grew into something real. However as much as I did like this book there were times when I could get easily distracted so I was not fully 100% always invested in the story. Yet, I was always able to jump right back into the book when I did come back to it.
Ellen has definitely grown by leaps and bounds in this book. Now she is a strong female fighter who is able to protect herself and be an asset to her community. I was really glad to see the logical thinking of the compound leader when trouble arrives; many times this goes by the wayside in times of panic. As the team is on the move, there is a lot more action present than in the first book. Ellen really gets to show off her new machete and survival skills. Also, the behavior of the zombies is described a little more in this book and I think that there will be some interesting things with that. Tyler is a nice addition to the team and his blacksmithing skills and a plus. I really liked how he and Ellen are moving slowly and gaining trust. I can’t wait to see where the story goes next.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
This read was absolutely brilliant. The whole premise is similar to most zombie reads, in the sense that there was an outbreak and after the outbreak people must find a way to fight back. However, this story is different in the sense that our main character has dealt with being trampled on and pushed round by the coming of the zombie age, and now she’s decided she’s had enough. She makes the decision to stand up and start fighting back, with everything she’s got.
I really like out main lady. She was written with a great attitude, strength, power, intellect and a plethora of snarky comebacks. She has a load of depth and really responds well to all the things that are thrown at her. I often stopped to think ‘yeh, I’d be like this is I were in the Z age.’ It was easy to really latch onto her and start to like both her and what she stood for – a comeback and chance at life for people.
The pace of the story was great. It had great actions sequences, really getting you into the scene, enough that I felt I may need to start wielding my own weapons of choice. These scenes were fast, fun and exciting. We were also left with loads of time to get to know our character, just why they are where they are and how she thinks. With this blend of action and depth, I really found the read rather addicting.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I will be looking out for more by this author and highly highly recommend you check this book out, especially if you are a zombie reader.
