After surviving the first days of the zombie apocalypse, Sheriff Penny Miller and her friends relax in what's left of Las Vegas. The Army asks Miller and her party to return to Crystal Place, the Top Secret base that was the birthplace of the zombies. Even though the mission is to recover data that may lead to a cure for the virus-and Miller herself-she's pretty sure it's a bad idea. The Army assures her that a crack team of mercenaries will be there to protect them every step of the way. When Miller sees weird religious graffiti scrawled in blood on the concrete walls, she's sure their chances of survival have just dropped to damn near zero. Again. Sometimes it sucks being right! "Zombies generated by a government scientist searching for super-soldiers meet up with a good-looking, foul-mouthed female Sheriff...and she's packin'. Four stars." -SF Signal "Defines Laugh Out Loud funny. Often inappropriate, rude and utterly epic sarcasm from a completely rock your face off chick! Read this now! You won't be sorry!" -Bookish Brunette "It's zombies. A mad scientist. An ass-kicking female sheriff out to save the world. A fun ride. One of the better novels of the undead. Recommended." -Horror World "Zombie thrillers loaded with sex and smarts." -Jonathan Maberry "A fun fully loaded brain entrails explosion of a high octane charged zombie story."

    “Uhh-huhh-hhuuuh.” You hear that? I hope not!Those are the grunts of the undead.Sheriff Penny Miller, you stole my heart when I first learned of you in the Hungry debut. Now you have rightfully brought it back again with some sweet justice in continuing to kill slobbering, rotting, stinky-assed walking corpses.Miller was a unique specimen. The only living person to have received both the zombie virus and the antidote. She went to hell and back and survived. Her nightmares testify to the fact that the last thing she wants is to be back in zombie central to pick up dirty laundry, a place where she and her friends almost died.She is given options: money and freedom for her band of men to get in and out before anyone knows. Back to the unforgiving and hidden violence of the desert plagued with the undead. They promised them greener pastures in return – and money. Will they be able to spend the money?What people would do for money and freedom.Has Sheriff Penny Miller bargained for more than she can handle?“Hell no!” I say. She is one of the toughest gals you’re gonna find on this darn earth, and with plenty of heart.One thing for sure is she and her band of men know what’s to be expected in the unforgiving barren land, and this time ‘round they’re experienced in killing the undead.We also learn Penny’s heart is as big as the desert she walks on. She’s a wounded soul emotionally and needs some loving.Oh yeah. Another thing is they are in a race against time.There is a clock ticking from 26 hours and 36 minutes down to zero, the annihilation of the zombie zone. Which will then be known as a nuked zone!This second installment involving Sheriff Penny and the zombie outbreak is more fast-paced than the first. Sheriff Penny is not in a wedding dress this time around, just basic apparel; a vest. And she is to be put through one of the greatest tests of her life. Her friendship with her comrades is also under a test and she must know who to trust.In this installment, Sheriff Penny meets an equal of sorts in the shape of Major Francine Hanratty, dubbed Rat by her peers. Together they fight for leadership with Penny and her comrades and Rat’s comrades in tow. They must get through this together in order to survive.Las Vegas had been abandoned and Nevada been placed under quarantine until the whole thing gets resolved.They will find themselves outnumbered, under-supplied, and behind enemy lines again.In zombie central they find life not of the undead but in the form of a strange man who talks of belief and minions of the evil one. He’s just what this story needs, an interesting addition to the already colourful characters within in this story. (For the newcomers, this book can be read without reading the debut.)The already large following of Sheriff Penny Miller will be up in arms rejoicing this fun, fully-loaded, brain entrails explosion of a high-octane charged zombie story.Miller still displays plenty of humour and common sense. For example: “Miller had learned a long time back that a man in lust was also unguarded and dumb as a fence post.”Also, Rat, with an equal sense of humour: ” ‘What about them [the zombies]?’ snapped Rat. ‘They’re unarmed, unarmored, uncoordinated, and from what I understand, dumber than dog shit. Like I said, one headshot takes them out. That’s a piece of cake for a first-rate team of marksmen. What are you so worried about, Dale? ‘ “ Review also @ info on purchasing the book @

    When I was a kid, I loved movies like Aliens and Predator. A big reason for this was the awesome monsters that the military heroes had to kill. Another big reason was the character of the heroes themselves. At that time in my life, I had dreams of joining the military so I could go on similar adventures, albeit without the monsters, because in these movies along with some books I was reading, the heroic military men and woman were a lot like the monsters: bigger than life and stronger than any mortal man. Even when and if they died. The beginning to Steven Booth’s and Harry Shannon’s sequel to the great The Hungry made me reminisce of those older movies and the emotions they summoned within my impressionable and young heart. In Wrath of God we first meet Rat and her team of military mercenaries who are on their way to Nevada for a mission with an odd catch. There are zombies in the desert, and their mission is of the upmost importance.When we rejoin Penny Miller and crew, they are held up in a Las Vegas hotel by the military. General Gifford, however, has other plans for them. He offers the crew a deal that will see them out of Las Vegas with a crap load of money. All they have to do is join up with the mercenaries and return to the scene of the crime from the climax of the first book to retrieve some data.Sounds easy, right? Penny doesn’t think so. In fact, she thinks that the deal stinks, and what follows is a one crazy and fun and entertaining moment after another. What I liked most about Wrath of God is the fun factor. I would even go so far as to say that this volume is even more fun than the first. The characters remain true to themselves as they did in the first, and the new characters, mainly Rat, another hard-edged, ass-kicking female protagonist, was a lot of fun to read. Yet, some of the mercenary’s felt a little flat to me, reminding me of hulk-like men, doing what their told while grunting their displeasure and scratching at their privates.There were also a few scenes at the end that just didn’t seem very realistic to me, but with that said, I am reminded of Sigourney Weaver hanging from one arm in a decompression airlock opened to the big black abyss of space. Large metal crates whip quickly by her head from the vacuum, and yet Sigourney’s harm does not tear off at the shoulder. I also remember Arnold Swartzaneggar stumbling out of the remnants of an explosion equal to that of a nuclear bomb with nothing more than a limp. Sure, his mind was completely gone, but he was relatively unharmed. Right? It’s these things that made these heroes larger than life and worth every inch of my childhood admiration. And I would argue that it’s the same with the heroes in The Wrath of God. They’re as tough as metal, and one would want to double check their sanity in messing with them.Oh yeah, and there’s lots of Zombies. How could you possibly want more?

    The wedding dress may be gone, but Sheriff Penny Miller is back. If you don't get the reference, then you haven't read The Hungry, a situation you truly ought to rectify ASAP.When last we saw Sheriff Penny Miller, she and a band of misfits had managed to get away from the Crystal Palace, the Top Secret base that was birthplace of the zombie apocalypse. Now, the military wants them to return, in an effort to retrieve vital information. Information that may lead to a cure or, in the wrong hands, could make things a whole lot worse.Penny doesn't want to do it, but when the Government lays a whole lotta money on the table and when everyone else opts in, somebody's gotta go to try and keep them all from all from becoming Zombie chow.To make matters worse, for Penny and her crew, they are burdened with a team of top notch military types, led by Major Francine Hanratty--dubbed Rat by her peers. They've been pulled from the middle of a firefight halfway around the world and for what? Zombies? They aren't too happy, either.No time is wasted getting into the action in The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God. I love the way the writers, Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon give the characters fun dialog, "dead as a Kardashian New Year's resolution come February" and "If brains were leather you wouldn't have enough to saddle a June bug." being fine examples.There are more than a few delicious twists to keep you guessing, including what's up with "The WrATh of GoD!" they keep seeing written on walls here and there.True, if you only ready literary masterpieces, this might not be for you, but if you read for fun and if you're looking for a great summer read for that weekend at the beach, the lake, your cabin in the woods or even curled up on the sofa in your air-conditioned living room. This is the one, especially if you have a hankerin' for some Zombies.Considering I've noticed where the books are now being tagged as The Sheriff Penny Miller Series I wouldn't be surprised to see The Hungry 3 somewhere down the line.The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God is available for pre-order from Apple iBookstore on iTunes. July 6, 2012, The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God will be available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBookstore, and from your local and online bookstores throughout North America and Europe, and Australia.

    As soon as I finished The Hungry, I knew right away that there was going to be another book and that I wanted it RIGHT AWAY! Sadly, I didn’t get it right away, probably because it was written yet, lol. When I got an e-mail from Genius publishing, who published The Hungry asking if I wanted an ARC of The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God to read and review I was beyond excited.The story of Sheriff Penny Miller and her clan is a story that is just enthralling. Scratch – the biker/convict, kind of sexy guy, Terril Lee – Penny’s ex husband and Sheppard – the sexy but gay scientist, this team is a team you do not want to mess with. At the end of The Hungry I for sure thought that Penny was a goner, but I was so excited to see what would happen to the bunch after they killed HORDES of zombies.In the second installment of The Hungry, Penny and the gang barely have time to rest and heal their wounds before the army makes them go back to crystal palace, the birthplace of the zombies. Before they even think about going back, Penny knows this is a horrible idea, and she is right of course. The twist and turns that come out of this book are just simply put, awesome. I caught myself yelling and screaming and cheering at my kindle. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.The Wrath of God – those words make you wonder what is going on, and when this phrase really comes into play in this book, it is very surprising and sickening (you will totally understand why when you get there) but it works SO well with this story. This just made me fall in love with Penny Miller all over again, and it will REALLY make you love Scratch as well. These guys have done it again with the Hungry 2: The Wrath of God, I cannot wait for you all to read it, it’s a ride you just don’t want to get off and I cannot wait for the next book!!

    Harry and I are very excited about The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God. As the sequel to The Hungry, it has a big reputation to live up to. We feel that this is a better book, a more sophisticated read, while being just as exciting as the first book. Sheriff Penny Miller is back. After being rescued from Crystal Palace by the military, she and her companions, Scratch, Terrill Lee, and Sheppard, are kept in protective custody in a penthouse in a nearly abandoned Las Vegas. The story begins when, after sitting on their butts for a month with nothing to do, the Army offers them an opportunity to end their custody. Return to Crystal Palace, retrieve crucial data, and help end the zombie plague. Miller has a bad feeling about the mission, but goes along to protect her friends. It's bad enough to be back in the middle of the Zombie Occupied Zone, but when they see weird religious slogans scrawled on the walls of the top secret base in what seems to be blood, Miller knows that their chances of survival have dropped to near zero. Again. We hope that you will enjoy this story.

    I have the worlds biggest girl crush on Sherrif Penny Miller. I am serious. She is sooo much fun to read. This review will be short and sweet. Why? Because there was nothing I didn't like about this book. Once again Booth and Shannon knocked it out of the park. This book has gore, humor, horror, intrigue, and action. Lots and lots of action. I mean it. Once again we get on the ride in the first chapter and we are still riding it when it ends. This book doesn't have a cliffhanger ending. It's just uncomplete. Penny hasn't gotten her happily ever after. If there is ever a woman that deserves it is Penny. That Cowgirl has worked damned hard for it. I hope that Mr. Booth and Shannon continue write the heck out Penny and these characters. I want to grow old with her. Sigh. I am in love.

    I read the first in this series on a plane ride from Salt Lake City after picking it up at World Horror Con 2012. I loved everything about it, especially the sassy, take-no-prisoners heroine, Sheriff Penny Miller. The second book in the series has everything I loved about the first: Penny Miller back in full-on attitude and ass-kicking glory, plenty of zombie action, and a lot of humor. It also has the addition of "Rat", another alpha-female character, and seeing Penny try to deal with a woman almost as macho as she is, is great and a welcome change from so many books where it's two alpha-males clashing as their testosterone levels rise. The dialogue and narrative crackle, and the expressions that come out of Penny's mouth are hilarious. Great combination of action, gore, horror and humor. Next in the series, gentlemen!

    An excellent fast paced sequel to the Hungry, blooming brilliant. Loved every page and cracking dialogue. Sheriff Penny Miller is back with a bang. Cannot wait for part 3, hope it's not too long. Can highly recommend this to all zombie apocalypse fiction lovers. A cracking story, a keeper.

    Steve Booth and Harry Shannon have done it again. 'The Wrath of God', their second offering in the Sheriff Penny Miller series, has done the unthinkable; the sequel is arguably as good, if not better, than their first book 'The Hungry'.Las Vegas has had a mass exodus and the entire state of Nevada has been placed under quarantine. In return for their freedom, Penny and her band of misfits are handed an offer they can't refuse. After a month of protective custody, they've been given a mission to retrieve sensitive data from ground zero which promises a real cure for Penny. The only twenty-six hours, the facility will be nuked. Penny, her ex-husband Terrill Lee, ex-biker felon turned almost good guy Scratch, and scientist Karl Sheppard are joined by an elite military team led by Major Francine 'Rat' Hanratty in the race against time. An introduction of a second alpha female turns into a struggle for power between Penny and Rat.'The Wrath of God' continues the story in third person narrative, but there is an added sense of urgency as each chapter begins with a countdown clock. When the clock strikes zero Nevada will go boom, killing everything and everyone that remains. With tension so thick it could be cut with a knife, the building anticipation lurking behind every shadowed corner will leave readers on the edge of their seats. The zombies appear to be getting smarter, displaying the ability to work in concert to strategize and ambush victims.Penny, the main protagonist, is as snarky as ever. While she has finally gotten some new clothes, the tattered wedding gown is anything but forgotten. The sexual tension between Scratch and Penny is building like a pressure cooker, but when a shocking accusation is made, Penny's faith, and trust, is shaken. New conflicts are introduced; bringing with them some creative antagonists. Some are fairly obvious, while others will blind-side readers with their deceit.The authors have crafted Penny to be a well thought out and fully realized character. What makes Penny such a strong lead isn't the super human abilities that allowed her to best a zombie horde, but her strength to endure. In the face of fear and devastating losses she maintains the inner strength to lead and protect others where most would give up. She will stand up to anyone and fight for anything to save herself and those in her charge. Of course the ability to kill a group of zombies with the arm she's torn off of one of them doesn't hurt. Forget the pen, the arm is mightier than the sword.There is a kinship between Joss Whedon's 'Buffy' and Penny Miller. Could Penny be the new Buffy?

    Well, Harry Shannon and Steven W. Booth did it again. The Hungry 2: The Wrath of God is every bit as awesome as the first novel was! I seriously couldn’t put the book down – I ended up finishing it in one day. The Hungry 2 is a quick and fun read with outstanding entertainment value!Sheriff Penny Miller is back for more trouble (along with her friends Scratch, Terrill Lee, and Sheppard), and the zombies are just itching for a chance to get their teeth into her flesh!This novel introduces some new characters to mix things up with the returning cast. Major Hanratty and her “Magnificent Seven” crew aren’t quite what they seem but, even suspecting that, I was still thrown for a loop when all the twists and turns were revealed. Father Abraham and his flock are almost exactly what I expected, but the way their story is revealed is terrifyingly satisfying!This novel has everything the first novel did, only ratcheted up to the next level: humor, despair, sexual tension (dear God, the sexual tension!!), tragedy, and triumph. From the very first page, the action begins and the pace just doesn’t let up. Even at the very end of the book, the reader is left wanting more, eagerly anticipating what might be next for our little band of misfit heroes!My only question is: When will The Hungry 3: Penny and Scratch Get Their Groove On be available?Do yourself a favor: Buy this series!! You won’t be sorry!

    The war against zombies continues in Nevada with Sheriff Penny MillerI enjoyed Book 1 The Hungry in this zombie series but this book was even better - more substance.Sheriff Penny ends up holed up in a penthouse suite in a deserted Las Vegas with the survivors from book 1.They are approached while there and made an offer they can't refuse (really) to go back to the super secret underground testing site known as the Crystal Palace in the remote deserts of Nevada. A team of mercenaries will go along to protect them and they, among other things, are to bring info back to the military.Penney has a very bad feeling about this from the start but really isn't given much of a choice. At least she's not wearing a wedding dress in this adventure.Zombies, bad guys, nut cases, and much more fill the pages of this zombie gorefest.I do wish the authors would learn the difference between waiving and waving. People in the story (book 1 too) waive their hands a lot. Incorrect and distracting every time I see it. Otherwise a fun, entertaining story. I'm off to read book 3 now - The Hungry 3: At the End of the World.I received this book from Genius Book Publishing in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Harry and Steven have done it again.Tasked with retrieving intelligence from the Crystal Palace, AKA zombie country Sheriff Penny Miller sets off with her original band of misfits along with some new ones to complete a mission. One she has her doubts about from the get go, but is left with little choice but to go along. After all who will save her friends if she isn't there??Filled with action and humor this book picks up where the first left off and doesn't disappoint in any way. The group finds themselves in hot water yet again when the arrive at their destination and discover the zombies are anything but gone. Along the way they meet some interesting characters, and fight more demons than they thought they would encounter. With Penny's quick whit and quick thinking can she manage to save the day again?? You will just have to read it to find out for yourself, but you won'd be disappointed. I just hope this isn't the end of Penny's adventures, because they are wild rides and great reads that will keep you at the edge of your seat and leave you begging for more.

    Our Hero's from "The Hungry 1" whom I refer to as Penny and the gang, must go to Sin City (Las Vegas) on a mission in order to gain their freedom. The only problem is that the entire state of Nevada has been placed under quarantine as this is ground zero for the Zombie outbreak. The government is about to drop a nuclear bomb on the whole place to try and wipe out the plague.So with wisecracks in cheek and a crazy guy in a Winnebago and the clock ticking our "plucky" sheriff heroine race against time to complete their mission.Will they make it ? We will have to wait and read "The Hungry 3: At the End of the World" to find out. (Which should arrive in the mail on Saturday - 2 days from now) ... oh oh I just saw that there was a "Hungry 4 - The Rise of the Triad" and from the picture on the cover Penny has lost some of her clothes, oh my ... These books are great fun and a great escape from those "Serious" books.

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.**I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! As much as i loved the first book, I loved this one even more. Hot redhead sheriff, zombies, mercenaries and a crazy guy driving a Winnebago. I say that is a recipe for an excellent book. Like the first book, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was full of action and humor. I loved every second of it. Each character is so different and I love each of them in their own crazy ways. Sheriff Penny Miller is of course my favorite because she’s tough and a smart ass. I am so excited to get started on the third book. Thank you Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon for writing such fun books to read.***Review has been written in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official***For more information regarding our reviews please visit our fansite at:

    The further adventures of Sheriff Penny and her "Scooby gang" doesn't disappoint. This book has even more action than the first one and is so much fun. The tension is there from the first few pages and never lets up until the last one. I'm so looking forward to book three (and then four)....keep 'em coming!!
