    The outbreak tore the US in two. The East remains a safe haven. The West has become a ravaged wilderness, known by survivors as the Evacuated States. It is here that Henry Marco makes his living. Hired by grieving relatives, he tracks down the dead and delivers peace. Now Homeland Security wants Marco for a mission unlike any other: He must return to California, where the apocalypse began. Where a secret is hidden. And where his own tragic past waits to punish him again.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    I didn't really read these type of books, but I love science fiction and horror but in separate books...
    But I decided to branch out and take a chance on a new genre...once I listened to the audio..I am now a big fan. It's a great pairing

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.

    Would you listen to The Undead Situation again? Why?

    Yep, I would listen to this one again


    What other book might you compare The Undead Situation to and why?

    hmmm, it's of the horror, zombie genre but so much more...absolutely awesome twist to the 'normal' z storylines


    What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    what a perfect voice for the main character--totally believable...lol if you believe in psycho zombie killers

    The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? On the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of....

    Mike Talbot is such a great character that I felt like I was a part of the family. I was so engrossed in the story line I forgot I was just a listener. The trials, tribulations and esp. humor was such a nice change of pace than what you normally find in your typical zombie story. I was a bit hesitant at first to listen to the series because I thought 'what's funny about being in a post apocalyptic world...with zombies'?!?!? But Mark Tufo does it...extremely well. But make no mistake, this has all the gore and action you fellow hard core zombies crave. So, I also give this series high marks..And I am hooked to this series and will be reading everything that comes out.

    The day the world ended, Erik Tragger escaped to the mountains. Cut off from civilization for five months, he returned to find a ruined city now ruled by the living dead. Tragger joins a group of survivors with a plan: make it to Portland where humanity is carving out a stronghold. But along the way they face opposition at every turn - the dead, rogue military forces, looters - and a new enemy more dangerous than any they have yet encountered. Among the stumbling, mindless zombies are... ghouls.

    Interesting premise but the actual writing didn't grab me. I don't mind low brow humor if it adds to the story, but it kind of makes you think of your little brother's sophmoric comments-you just want to roll your eyes.

    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.
