Description From GoodReads:
It's month after the dead first began to walk. The miracle vaccine that was supposed to save us all has failed.

Now, four teens fight to stay alive as a stronger, smarter breed of zombie begins to appear, threatening to end humanity for good.

Four short stories, 11,000 words total.

Prequel to Mortality (March, 2013).

My Review:
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I liked most about End Dayz was that it offered up multiple perspectives, giving readers a better idea of what was taking place inside this world that Sheridan had created.

This was a quick read, and a nice introduction to the first book, Mortality. I'm intrigued by the world that Sheridan has crafted. It is hard to make something unique when it comes to zombies, and I was worried this would be just another zombie story. It wasn't. In this 11,000 word prequel, told through journal entries/letters, Sheridan manages to showcase a world struggling to rebuild after two separate attacks.

I will definitely make it a point to check out Mortality as soon as possible, as I'm curious to see what is next for these characters, and what Sheridan has in store for us readers.
