The Undertaking - Mindless Trilogy #2
Sequel to Sleep, Think, Die
'The Undertaking,' sequel to 'Sleep, Think, Die' AVAILABLE NOW ON AMAZON!
For Lavender Gin and Carson, life has changed beyond all recognition. Determined to keep a promise made to an old friend, they have formed a new group of allies and are reduced to hunting down zombies and Thinkers alike in rat-infested sewers, armed only with whatever makeshift weapons they can lay their hands on. Things are already tough enough. When Carson goes missing, Lavender finds she not only faces the possibility of carrying on without him, but that she is also caught up in a head-to-head challenge for leadership.
As if all of this was not enough, a twisted brand of evil watches them from the shadows, leaving a trail of calling-card corpses in its wake.
Slowly, Lavender realises she is also faced with another enemy; one she can neither see nor fight, but which threatens to take away completely all that she now holds dear. Will she and Carson ever be reunited and if they are, is it anyway too late to matter?
‘The Undertaking,’ is the sequel to ‘Sleep, Think, Die: The Zombie Apocalypse - Where a Little Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing,’ by S P Oldham.

The Undertaking - 3 out of 5 stars Still worth reading

"Book 2 in the series was once again well written but left me bit perplexed by the direction the storyline took with one of its main characters. Certainly worth picking up and reading."
"The second offering in S.P. Oldham's 'Mindless Trilogy' is altogether darker and grittier than the first.
Lavender and Carson, protagonists of the first book 'Sleep,Think,Die', are back with a new supporting cast.
The characters have grown and matured, as has their relationship.
In this tale, the author shifts the emphasis from pure survival to an examination of how the Zombie Apocalypse allows for the emergence of extreme facets of the human psyche in susceptible individuals. We're steering very close to 'Walking Dead' territory here, and that's a compliment.
There are a couple of references to characters and incidents from the first book, which don't detract from the story, but will have more relevance if you read S.T.D. first.
Altogether, a satisfying follow-up and, hopefully, a foretaste of what is to come in the final episode. I can't wait."
Great 5 Star review for 'The Undertaking' - thank you Michelle! As Michelle points out, amongst other things, there is a 'double zombie worth looking out for,' - what more can you want, as another reviewer put it, for less than the price of a costa latte?!
"Michelle rated it 5* it was amazing
Please note that I have been given a copy of this book in return for a honest review.
This is a sequel to Sleep, Think, Die. In this instalment, characters from the previous book develop and new characters are introduced. I like that things/items for the characters, are not acquired so easily and characters are killed off. Has more of a realistic feel to it.
For a Zompoc book~this has the right level of gore and horror.....absolutely loads with a little shock factor thrown in to boot.
There is a part with a double zombie worth looking out for~hilarious!
Although I loved this book, I do feel that the ending was a little rushed. However I like to see another instalment to this series?....YES!
I totally recommend both books in this series. I hope that you enjoy like I have."

What a fantastic read, the author has done a great job with the characters carrying on from sleep think die. This story kept me captured, it can be a little gruesome with details at times but it adds to the feel of the book. I can’t wait to see how the story continues. For those of you who like end of world stories witch include zombies then this is for you"

I have been lucky enough to read this book already and can honestly say I loved it. The continuing saga of a band of survivors in a post apocalyptic wasteland trying to survive zombies and even worse, other uninflected humans taking advantage of the chaos to fulfill their own depravities. . . The characters are well defined and engaging. The plot line is enticing and highlights the struggles that face a group of people thrust together against a common foe as as each other.
The ending posed more questions than answers and I hope there is another book in the pipeline to address the questions I have after finishing."
