During the highly improbable zombie uprising of 2013, the fearless American bulldog Riley quickly discovered that it was up to her to keep the pack safe. Together with Yorkshire terrier Ben-Ben and former archenemy Patches the cat, Riley struggles to keep the zombies at bay while helping her favorite human, Jessie, as they travel cross-country, dodging pepper paint balls and taser blasts from the evil, misogynistic Icely and his band of thugs.
Now this motley mishmash of mammals are running for their lives. The wicked Icely has picked up their scent and is now chasing them across the badlands of Colorado in hopes of seeking revenge - a painful one at that - on the dog that tried to kill him, as well as on the "bitches" who got away. Seen through the eyes of a random narrator and Riley, we have to wonder: Will Icely and his men chase them down and zap them into oblivion? Or will the zombies finally win and get the brains they desperately crave?

I have enjoyed Mark Tufo’s books immensely – he has never disappointed. I was a bit skeptical at first about “seeing” the zombie apocalypse through an American bulldogs eyes, but I should have known that Tufo does NOT disappoint (I’m sure the word is NOT in his vocabulary!).
This is part 3 in a series of novellas. Jess and Zack are humans struggling to reach Mike Talbott’s family (see Zombie Fallout Series to meet this fun and adventuresome family). Continuing her travels Jess, with the help of Riley, Patches (the cat) and BenBen (a Yorkshire Terrier pup), she has to make sure her less than 2 year old brother makes it there alive.
In this part, they break free from the evil villain, Icely, and takes one of his brides to freedom. Along the way this strange pack encounters zombies and decent folks who try to help them. No one is really prepared to battle Icely and his thugs who are hunting them down. In Icely’s mind, no one gets away especially a “bitch.”
Of course, Tufo wouldn’t be Tufo if he didn’t wring emotions out of his readers – you will laugh (and find yourself craving bacon), cheer, gasp, and cry all in sitting. He weaves his magic so that you become entrenched with his characters and his plot – there is no escaping his writing style! You will find yourself immersed in this horrifying zombie apocalypse where luck has fled and fighting alongside the pack until the end.
Sean Runnette does another excellent job! He has captured the personalities perfectly allowing you to visualize each member of the pack as well as everyone else. Runnette is the best narrator for this author’s books – I can’t imagine anyone else doing such a magnificent job!
Tantor did an excellent job of producing this audio book. There were no glitches or sound issues. Superbly done.
