    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Story

    Just to start I'd like to say that I download the majority of zombie novels and I am always on the look for a new one.

    I thought over all the book was excellent and the story reminded me a little of Marvel zombies however they are not the same kind. I don't want to say to much on that but if you are looking for a Marvel zombie carbon copy story line you may be a little disappointed.

    The narration was well done and the fact that they also had a female reading for some of the characters did not lessen the experience for me. The production was top notch as well.

    Sometimes its hard to warm up to new super heroes after all the years of Marvel and DC but the ones in this story I really liked and hopefully they will make at least another book to follow this one up.
    How the zombies outbreak happens is original and adds alot to the story. The book is kinda told in a Pulp Fiction movie style, going from past to present. I had to listen to the story 2 times before I got a better understanding of what was going on, as far as the names of characters, what happened to them and how it applied to the current situation. I usually listen to the books while I'm working in my shop so sometimes I miss some of the critical plot points.
    Overall this is a good listen and worth the credit in my book. If I didn't like it I wouldn't bother writing much of a review.

    Where does Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can never give enough praise to Tufo. I have been following him for a few years since I ran across him and his writing is original and amazing to say the least. Your credit or money will be well spent on any of his books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how he ties together all his books into a mythos much like Lovecraft. Mark Tufo is not H.P. Lovecraft in style per say but the world that he is creating is in the same vein. The characters have depth and you care about all of them even the villains at times. the originality of the his zombie story is much like the first time I watched Return of the living dead. It was funny and original to the zombie movies I had previously watched and the Dead could run! I can never say enough good things about the zombie fall out series. If you are just starting to listen to this series I envy you because you get to listen anew to an amazing series.
    Spoiler maybe?
    You also need to pay attention to what is going on. In one particular part when he is talking to Ron someone really wants to talk to Justin. I missed that one my first listen.

    There is so much that is going on in the book that you really need to listen more that once to catch it all. All the books are like that actually.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sean Runnette has by far one of the best voices I have ever heard for a narrator. His characters are believable, well detailed and distinguished from one another. There can be no other narrator for this series than Sean. He needs to do more books. I would follow his progress. I would love to hear him do some Lovecraft stories maybe some Stephen King and any other horror/sci-fi that needs to be done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm a guy nothing moves me much. Unless BT punched me.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy the audio books and buy the books. well worth every Penny. You can get Mark Tufo signed books at his website.
    I know I'm gushing here about this series but it is really the best I have ever heard. There are many good Zombie tales on audible but Mark Tufo is the Best!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Overall

    This is a great series. I was a little worried that it might fall flat in the beginning but it picked up pace when he finally left the compound and the story went right back to the roots of the first book. I liked the ending and can't wait for the 3rd book. I have to say that the narrator does an excellent job and everything is top notch. I've listened this series probaly 4 times now. Worth the credit and even worth purchasing if you can't wait.

    Our heroes are dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers but soon find themselves defending their hotel and convention center against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Suddenly, all of their useless knowledge about particle physics and old Star Trek episodes has genuine real-world applications! And while hotel employees and regular civilians are dying left and right, our Trekkies summon strength and courage by emulating their favorite starship-voyaging characters

    You have it all in this one. Couldn't have been better. It seemed a little slow at first but once it got going I was happy. The reader did an excellent job and the production was top notch. Hope they do some more like this in the future. As you would expect with a title like this it is funny and if you are a Star trek fan you'll like all the references. Zombies at a Star trek convention you gotta love that!

    Nothing stays dead for long. The dead are returning to life, intelligent, determined...and very hungry. Trapped by the undead, escape seems impossible for Jim Thurmond. But Jim’s young son is alive and in dire peril hundreds of miles away. Despite overwhelming odds, Jim vows to find him—or die trying. Joined by an elderly preacher, a guilt-ridden scientist, and a determined ex-prostitute, Jim embarks on a cross-country rescue mission.

    Overall

    A different swing on the whole end of the world zombie outbreak. I actually found it refreshing that it was not just a mindless zombie horde. If you like zombies and Evil dead like another had posted you will like this book. Good action and I liked the concept for why this all happened. For Mature readers there is some sexual content. Production on the recordings could have been better but he does a nice job of reading. I would have given this 5 stars had the production been better.

    Where can you go when the dead are everywhere? Cities have become overrun with legions of the dead, all of them intent on destroying what's left of the living. Trapped inside a fortified skyscraper, a handful of survivors prepare to make their last stand against an unstoppable, undying enemy. With every hour their chances diminish and their numbers dwindle, while the numbers of the dead can only rise. Because sooner or later, everything dies. And then it comes back, ready to kill.

    Andrea says: "Good Story, Bad Narrator"
    "I liked it."
    Overall

    I thought it was well written and entertaining all the way through. The action was none stop. The ending may not be for everyone but it was a nice change from other books. This is not for younger readers by any means, some really messed up sexual stuff going on in this one.
    I'd give this book 5 stars but the production for the reader was so so. It sounded like he used a voice activated recorder. At some point in the book I actually heard a plane flying by as he was recording. His voice did kinda sound like the guy from A Christmas Story which made me kinda laugh at first be he does read well. I'd also suggest the first book. They are both really good and worth the credit in my opinion. If you like Zombies and the Evil Dead films you will most likley like this book and The Rise as well.
