So, If you follow me here and on Twitter...well, then you know I'm a zombie fan. Not so of the monsters themselves, but I do do a weekly feature of the Walking Dead with my Blogger buddy Ana @ Beach Bum Reviews.
Anyhoo's I like the development of the relationships of the folks beyond the zombies, because what is a world with just them? we need suvivors, correct? Folks fighting to the very end to keep humanity as it was...is...
This is why I'm a fan of the show. The relationships of the suvivors is intriguing and often times intense. So I like the idea of featuring a book that deals with this aspect. The feelings and relationships that happen after the bad things have happened and are still going on...so when I was asked to feature After Life Lessons, I immediadtely jumped on board.

Hulking shadows emerge out of the chaotic flurries of the blizzard. Something is dying, and so they come, like vultures.
After months of struggling south to escape the zombie-infested remains of New York, a snowstorm traps 23-year old artist, Emily, and her son in an abandoned gas station. Starving and desperate, they encounter Aaron, an Army medic on a mission of his own, who offers them a ride to ease the journey.
The road is a long and dangerous place to travel, and every day brings a new threat. But fear and adrenaline also drive the two closer together; they find laughter and a budding attraction that starts to thaw at their numb and deadened feelings. And that’s when the pain really starts to hit, when places long thought lost prickle back to life. Eventually, they will have to fight not just for survival, but for a future together, or their broken world will swallow them whole.
