How did I miss this? Guess I know where some of my blow money for the rest of the month is going...off to Barnes & Noble!

I got my copy in the mail today from amazon, and I've only made it to page 36,Semper Fi. I have been waiting for a long time for this book, and i am not going to race through it . I am going to enjoy drawing it out over my three day weekend. Thanks again raptor. Keep up the good work. Please keep writing.

Just finished it. I've really enjoyed both books and I hope we get a third from you. The last couple pages really threw the story into a whole new direction. Good stuff, thanks Raptor!

The local Borders just stocked them. I'll be picking up my copy on my lunch break today. Can't wait!

ETA: Okay, maybe not. I think I'm going to have to order it from Amazon.

Picked up a copy today at a local bookstore. I'm in the middle of Feed, but I think I'll take a break and read Beyond Exile.

Very good read . I really took my time to enjoy it the for the first reading and didn't race through. Forgetting that this is a sequel, and you know more or less the world that you are going to drop into before you start reading, i thought this book was one notch better than the original. Now i am a big fan of the original book. I have read it 4 or 5 times, and still enjoy it. This book is at least as well written, and is better thought out than the first book. It had a lot of unforeseen plot twists that really got you inside the head of the main character and feeling the plight of his situation in your guts as it unfolds. The end of the book left a good opening for what i hope is a third story in the series. Top shelf second entry into the zombie apocalypse genre. This one is not to be missed.

I just bought a copy for my Kobo eReader. I haven't read it yet but I really liked the first one.

Just walked through the door with my fresh copy from Barnes and Nobel. Plan on reading it tonight.

I was a big fan of the first book, and I will write an extensive review of part two for the forum, good or bad, within the next few days. 8)
