Frayed, Book 9 in the bestselling Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, picks up three weeks after Ghosts, Book 8, left off.

Outbreak - Day1
Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again.

Since that last normal Saturday in July, the Omega virus has indiscriminately delivered destruction and death to all four points of the compass—the latter having recently been visited upon former Delta Force soldier Cade Grayson and the small group of civilian survivors making their home in the subterranean compound near Eden, Utah.

In the three weeks since mounting a brash rescue mission to a zombie-infested Los Angeles and returning home to find lives of loved ones hanging in the balance, Cade has occupied himself with runs outside the wire to procure supplies necessary to ride out what the Farmer's Almanac predicts will be a long, cold winter.

As Cade and his team seize an unforeseen opportunity provided by the plummeting temperatures, he quickly realizes they are in a race against time—and nature’s fickle whims. And as they all labor to make the most of this gift horse, little does he know, even as Old Man Winter covers the valley with the first snow of the season, the infamous Mister Murphy is about to hurl a wicked curveball his way. Because like the fabled butterfly effect—a single action from the past is about to set in motion a chain of events that could at once spell doom for Eden as a sanctuary and scatter the entire group into the wind.

Come along and see if our tenacious little group will Survive the Zombie Apocalypse for one more precious day.

    As always Shawn does not disappoint... We have been growing with characters and seeing them go from heroes to showing human weaknesses and from weak humans to an organized squad. The trials and tribulations that go along the book keep you captivated from page to page. Shawn paints a movie where you can see yourself amidst the story. The only complaint I have would be waiting for the next book. Another great book in the series.

    Once again Shawn Chesser immerses us in detail which takes us in another riveting direction! No cooking or cleaning done while I read this book! How dare you make us wait to learn Brooke is alive!! Plus the unique add of AA with Glenda for Duncan makes the story real. The twists, Mr. Murphy, unexpected reunions and old habits keep connected to your characters. Building on the strength of women in a post apocalyptic world makes me appreciate this series even more. Thank you Shawn Chesser. Now get back to work before my nerves fray waiting!! Laura S.
