Publisher's Summary

When America is hit with a pandemic - soon finding out it was a viral and biochemical attack from terrorists - the population is both shocked and relieved to quickly have a vaccine on hand to save them. Untested and rushed to market, the people don’t care. In droves they line up, hoping to avoid the deadly virus. 

But when a new variant strikes the vaxxed population, chaos and mayhem soon follow. Too late, they discover there is something much worse than the virus unleashed on the United States; something so hideous and terrifying, it will make the virus look like a bad case of the flu.

Lilly and Pepper are twins. While Pepper, an Atlanta police officer, tries to hold the blue line in a world gone mad, Lilly, a deaf Medical Research Assistant at the CDC, struggles through the apocalypse - along with her best friend, Bo, and her dog, Moses - in search of her son. Together, they’ll have to part the red sea of death and find safety and deliverance from the evil that has pervaded America.

DISCLAIMER: The book contains a few wordy-dirds, mostly in Chapter 36, Grandpa’s Last Stand, the content of which may trigger veterans with PTSD. The language is essential for this chapter, especially.

Starts out ok then turns into a dog’s view.

Mother & friend looking for son in the apocalypse. Sister looking for the Mother. Both own dogs. Blip here and there of dogs’ view. Then suddenly several chapters on dog running off trying to find the boy. As if the author got tired of the people’s tale. Dog finds boy, no story his mother and friend found the lost boy. Nit my cup of tea.

phenomenal!

This book is a great start to what I'm sure will be another great series by the author. I'm a huge fan of the post-apocalyptic genre and this book will not disappoint. I'm normally not a big "zombies" fan but I found myself unable to stop listening to this one. The characters are easy to fall in love with and Kevin Pierce does an awesome job narrating as always!

Not your typical zombie book! So much more!

I loved everything about this book. The story, the characters and the writing are outstanding! I am not a huge zombie fan but I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one in the series. Well done!

The Incredible Journey meets The Walking Dead

The beginning of another awesome series by LL Akers. The collaboration with Danny Brown is a perfect balance and Kevin Pierce makes it come alive. Anyone that loves animals will fall in love with this book. Anxiously awaiting the second installment in this series!

Worth the Wait!

Lisa (LL) Akers also wrote the Let Me Go series and the SHTF series. All are awesome including this long awaited jewel! I saw a review about the second part of Signs of Life Book 1 is thru a dog's eyes. Part of it is but not even nearly half and it adds to the story in my opinion. Good job to both of the authors and of course narration by our Kevin Pierce tops it off ! Enjoy!!

You’ve done it again L L Akers!!

This story is fantastic. I loved the different points of view, both human and canine. God Bless Moses. He must be exhausted after that journey trying to find The Boy. I cannot wait to listen to the next book. Well done you xo

This popped my Mover and Shaker cherry!

I am a voracious post apocalyptic genre reader who has not once bought nor finished a book having anything to do with a Zombie type character. I purchased this book before even reading the description because this author is a favorite.

Once I started the book, I paused because of my concern for some of the main characters. I am one of those readers that is prey intense and gets all emotionally invested in really well developed characters. The twin aspect intrigued me, one being deaf only enthralled me more. Including a K-9 officer and other animals had me pacing and flipping pages at an alarming rate. I couldn’t not pick it back up. The Veteran scene had me bawling my eyes out and then walking into work looking like someone I loved died.

This book grabbed me (albeit reluctantly) by the throat and sank it’s teeth into me until I sat in my car IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE in a freezing car just so I could finish it uninterrupted! I bought both the kindle version as well as the Audible because I also have a voice crush on Kevin Pierce (the narrator)!

Read it, listen to it and commiserate with me until book 2 releases! Yes, it is THAT good! Well done LLAKERS! Well done! I’m not sure I’ll read another zombie-esque book but this one DID NOT disappoint!

Awesome book

It’s not about the zombies; it’s about courage, perseverance, love, joy, dogs, mistakes, and survival. I can’t wait for the next one! Kevin Pierce’s narration is perfect! He has a voice for each person, 2 dogs, coyotes, squirrels, and a cat! Kevin’s talents make a great story into a fantastic one!

Great story and very well written!

As always L.L. Akers has written a book with a great story line that is so well written that it keeps you pulled into the story. I’m usually not into zombie type post-apocalyptic books but this one was really good and I think a lot of it was because the zombies want the main subject of the book but instead just a hazard. I highly suggest checking this book out.
