Book description:

After being rescued from a brutal band of marauders, Ellen Hale rebuilt her life in the fortified neighborhood that became her home. A heartbreaking decision and devastating loss pushed her to become a fierce fighter, because weakness only got you and those you loved killed.

Now her community is facing a deadly threat, and Ellen has another choice to make.

Ellen volunteers as a member of fallback team three, tasked with establishing a temporary refuge for their citizens in the event their community is overrun by the enemy. As the danger intensifies, she and her adopted sister, Melissa, set off with the rest of their team on the road trip from hell.

Their mission is cloaked in secrecy, but suspicions of a traitor arise.

Something is affecting the zombies’ migration patterns, and when blacksmith Tyler Garrett is discovered trapped in a farmhouse, the team refuses to trust him. But Ellen believes his story, and it’s not just because of his rugged, blond good looks and soft-spoken manner—his skills can greatly benefit their team.

As the team struggles to reach the fallback, previously secure locations are overrun, and their chances of success seem remote. With the likelihood of a traitor nearly certain, and the lives of everyone she loves at risk, Ellen must figure out who to trust before the traitor—or the zombies—destroy them all.

Is there a spy among the fallback team,
or is there another threat lurking in the Kentucky hills?

Review contains no spoilers*

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. They don't know what lies outside their walls, but in them, they are forming a pretty compact unit, and I was sad to see that threatened. Her books are not just straight zombie gore, they are social commentaries. (Re: the way Ellen's life was threatened by remaining human's in The Dead Survive)

Bottom line; this book is perfect for fans of the Walking Dead, urban fantasy, and just someone who wants a damn good book. You will do better is you have read the first book in the series; The Dead Survive, a lot of things are explained in that first book. But you won't go wrong, this book is a fast, engrossing read. One that leaves you breathless, and hoping for a third book.

I was given this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. **

Fallback is the epitome of life after the ZomPoc. Not everything is easy. Everyone isn't friendly. And not all monsters are Zombies. Add that to the action, excitement and apprehension of that world and you have a survivor's future.
