Undead: a reanimated corpse with a craving for human flesh.
Ultramarathon: any footrace longer than a traditional marathon (26.2 miles).

For ultrarunners Kate and Frederico, a typical Saturday morning is spent pounding out a twenty- to thirty-mile “fun run.” It’s during one of their runs that an insidious illness descends upon northern California, turning humans into flesh-shredding zombies.

When Kate receives a desperate call from her son, Carter, she and Frederico flee their hometown and set out to help him. The only problem? Carter attends college over two hundred miles away and the freeways—clogged with car wrecks, zombies, and government blockades—are impassable. Running back roads and railroad tracks becomes their only means of travel, but neither of them has ever run so far before.
As pain, injuries, hunger, and fatigue plague them, getting to Carter and staying alive seem impossible. It’s either outrun the undead or become one of them, and for Kate, death is not an option.

Just wanted to leave my little opinion about this trailer. I loved that the author put herself into this situation to get some inspiration for the book. That trek looked really fun, I kinda makes me what to go outside now. On thing about this video is that I wished that that background music was lower then the voice over because it was kinda out I couldn't hear what was being said well.
Kate and Federico are ultra runners. Basically that means rather than just doing the 5k or marathons up to 26.2 they go for the runs that are like 100 miles or more, that'll end up leave them a bit looney if not done right. It was during a run that the zombie apocalypse occurs. Without a vehicle they do what they do best and Ultra run their way to their children. It's not going to be an easy journey, its going to be more then a hundred miles to get there, but these parents will do whatever means nessesary to get where they are going.

Can't remember the last zombie book that I read off the top of my head but this book has to top it. I really loved this book. I loved that there was so much going on. After seeing the trailer I was curious on seeing the connection between the trek the author went through and where it would fit in with the book. Like this book was pretty amazing and I loved it. I'm a horror fan and a book lover and this book was perfect for me. Also I learned something, I had never heard of ultra running before so after the book I pretty much looked up all that I could about it. Not even fit enough... or fit... or try it but still love learning about new things. I loved how the author worked ultra running into this book, that in itself made it unique. Also I like when people can make a bit of their own twist when it comes to zombies. Oh and one more thing, I like that it was actually pointed out as such, they were what they are zombies. Most movies and books that I read they come up with so many different names and assuming any of the characters watched basic tv they should've just said the word zombies instead of the random names.

Overall a fantastic read and I really enjoyed it.Highly Recommend!
